just got back from work, can't wait for the wait they got in store for us for the first night in the City of Angels.

Hopefully some new tunes, I think the structure will be the same as Anaheim II, it worked well.

Yeah, I've been working on a setlist for a while, trying to create what would be, for me, the ultimate setlist. It's not complete (I'm letting it come naturally as I think of good combinations rather than forcing it), but here's the part in question:

4. One Tree Hill --> Yahweh (snippet) --> Heartland --> Bass Trap --> A Sort Of Homecoming --> Resolution And Independence* (snippet) --> Where The Streets Have No Name
*poem by William Wordsworth

I can post the explanation of the transitions if you want to read it.

ah yes, "lua".... so sadly beautiful. i adore the entire album ("i'm wide awake, it's morning"). never seen him perform live, though.

ok, back to U2!

Transitions:

One Tree Hill through modified Yahweh to Heartland:
“Oh great ocean, oh great sea
Run to the ocean, run to the sea …
… the sun is coming up over the ocean …
… the sun is coming up over the sea …
… see the sun rise over the ocean …
… see the sun rise over her skin
Don’t change it
See the sun rise over her skin
Dawn changes everything”

Heartland’s instrumental outro blends into Bass Trap, which then builds into A Sort Of Homecoming. A Sort Of Homecoming resembles the Unforgettable Fire Tour performances rather than the studio version at the beginning to aid the transition.

A Sort Of Homecoming through a snippet of William Wordsworth’s Resolution And Independence plus an alteration of an impromptu Samuel Beckett tribute from 26 December 1989 into Where The Streets Have No Name:
“Oh don’t sorrow, no don’t weep
For tonight, with you, I am coming home
I’m already home …
(Where The Streets Have No Name organ begins)
I’m already home
… (vocal pause as organ builds up) …
… His voice to me was like a stream
Scarce heard; nor word from word could I divide;
And the whole body of the man did seem
Like one whom I had met in a dream
Some men dream of other roads
Some men dream of other lands
Of another home, of another home
Where the streets have no name!
Take me, TAKE ME!”

Yeah, that's when they usually take the stage, or a few minutes earlier.

I'm counting 40 as this day being over and not the day of the show...I'm seeing them in NJ on the 17th...then in Philly on the 22nd.

then I am seeing them five times in the fall....4 in NYC and one in Boston
