maybe because the 4 shows were in different parts of the world?

so why would they throw a completley different set list in for a totally different city and to the last one?

One question: do you think that is a question of cities or country to play the same setlist?? Let me explain, next august they come to spain for three gigs ( Barcelona, San Sebastian and Madrid ). Will they repeat the same setlist because are different cities or they will change the setlist because its the same country and many people ( like me ) will attend more than one spanish vertigo gig ??

well you gotta be honest, i got see a large % of the people that go to the barcelona concert, travelling to the other citys, if you know what i mean? suppose its like when they played manchester, london, cardiff, not many travelled with them right through to cardiff, why would they? i would have loved to (even if it was the same set) but couldnt due to work etc, but i think the majority of the ones that do travel know it will be pretty much the same setlist, but its still U2 live

p.s. i would say at most there could be possibly 10% travelling city to city

Yeah the complaining about setlists does get a bit old. They only tour ever 4 years. Just enjoy the show. I know I listen to my cd's more than once without demanding a new cd immediately after I listen to it.

i think that if they play 3 shows in different cities in Spain that they would change the setlists for each. U2 changing setlists means that they will change 2 - 3 songs MAX.

Or do multiple concerts in general (visit more in one city)

Over 90% (if not more) of the people who visit a U2 gig only visit one gig, and most of them probably don't even check their past setlists.....

DON'T FORGET!! WE ARE A TINY MINORITY OF ALL THE PEOPLE GOING TO A U2 GIG!!!!

Isn't it time for the apologists to step up and admit that this unchanging setlist is incredibly lame? Or that With Or Without You shouldn't be a permanent addition? Or that Crumbs not being played is a strange turn of events? Or that Vertigo needs to be alternated as a closer?

Or will they continue to give us a bunch of B.S. about how U2 is playing the perfect show and the perfect setlist and how we should be happy and just shut up?

It's like the Joshua Tree Tour all over again (with all those repeating setlists, etc.).
