Love and Peace or Else as Tour Opener

House lights off at beginning of tune. Total blackness.

Lights stay off when Bono begins to sing. At 1:32, the houselights turn on completely.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

One variation was a single spot light comes on Bono when he starts to sing, then the spotlight goes out at 1:25, and then all lights turn on at 1:32.

Thoughts? Ideas? Rants and raves?

I'd be willing to bet that it will follow Exit. But damn, yes, it would make an awesome opener.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

I honestly would rather see LAPOE than Vertigo as the opener. LAPOE has to build out of something with a slow, brooding end (like Exit) or nothing.

I've changed my mind.

I never pictured this as a tour opener.

City of Blinding Lights.

Listen to the song as you read this.


As the song starts, house lights off, spot lights off, except for like some redish light that shows their figures, but no details.

When Bono starts to sing, spot lights of all band members go on, but not too bright, just giving them enough to be seen.

At 1:45, lights get brighter on stage.

When the chorus starts, the houselights go up.

I never thought of this as a tour opener, but now picturing this and hearing the song, I'd rather have this open than LAPOE.

Just me.

On my first listen to the full version, I had that exact thought! I think LAPOE would be the perfect opener, then straight into Vertigo...

Yes you have, I remember seeing that after the LAPOE clip came out, and you are soooooo right!!

This sound would be an eerie, powerful opener.

1. Love and Peace or Else
2. All Because of You
3. Vertigo
4. City of Blinding Lights
5. Miracle Drug

Then they finally segue into slower songs.
