YOUR third leg support shortlist

If you were in charge of selecting a group of 5-10 bands to present to U2 as possible openers for the third leg of the tour, who would be on that list?

Here's mine, ranked in order of preference:

stellastarr*
The Arcade Fire
The White Stripes [Are they too big to open for U2?]
The Killers
Franz Ferdinand
Snow Patrol
Death Cab For Cutie [not so sure how well this would go over, or even if they'd want to do it]

- Dream Theatre
- Porcupine Tree
- Muse
- Re-formed Crowded House with Paul Hester back from the dead
- The Dalton Brothers

And then when U2 look at me like I have three heads, I'll tell them I'm completely serious and damn well expect to see the U2/Dream Theatre tour coming to a town near me next year.

"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."

Seriously...U2 would have to open for the Crowdies any day in my book. CH > U2. That being said...

Even you Axver must admit that an act that features a resseruction deserves to have top billing, I don't think I'm being overly pedantic.

I want to see Placebo open for them again. But I think they're too big. Maybe not in the States, though. . I think I'd die if I saw U2 and Placebo in the same night

A descent U2 cover band to play the 10 or so songs that the band left off their current setlist that I’d like to hear. Bastards!!

Snow Patrol

The Killers

Razorlight

Acarde Fire (I think their chances to support on the 3rd leg are very high )

I liked Kings of Leon but I really hope they have more than one support act on the 3rd leg.
