Next tour prediction(s): WAR and POP songs.

Given the conditions of the current times, and how they will change, I'm betting that U2 will be playing songs from WAR and have a POP encore for the next tour.

Songs that will be included from the War album (in no particular order or rotation)

Like A Song
New Year's Day
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Two Hearts Beat As One *possibly*

Then, for the encores expect;

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

Please may be played in the main set, I have a feeling that the next tour will be focused on the relief (if solved by then) for Africa, and peace (COEXIST will make a return, as well as Love And Peace Or Else)

Projected Setlist:

1. New Song
2. New Song
3. Vertigo
4. Elevation
5. Out Of Control
6. Beautiful Day
7. New Year's Day
8. New Song
9. New Song (segues into COBL)
10. City Of Blinding Lights
11. New Song (politically written)
12. Love And Peace Or Else
13. Sunday Bloody Sunday
14. Bullet The Blue Sky
15. Please
16. Where The Streets Have No Name
17. Pride (In The Name Of Love)

18. MOFO
19. Discotheque
20. With Or Without You

21. All Because Of You
22. One
23. Yahweh
24. ??? (Mystery song closer, perhaps they'll have a strong closer this time)

Songs from HTAADB that will stay:

Crumbs From Your Table
All Because Of You
Fast Cars

Oldies, but goodies that will stay;

Out Of Control (give 'Follow' a break)

The theme of the tour will be UNITY. I foresee problems in the world continuing, but making an effort to unite mankind. Bush will be out of office, and Blair hopefully out of power, we will see what politics play in this round.

DVD to be filmed in America, U2 Live From Madison Square Garden (or Miami)

DVD to be filmed outside of America, Amsterdam (or possibly Chorzow, or a Dublin crowd -- Phoenix Park??)

I just hope they drop Bullet and Yahweh and bring back Walk On. They also really need to bring back the red backdrop for Streets and not be so Africa driven. Basically I want to relive the Elevation tour.

Re: Next tour prediction(s): WAR and POP songs.

Really a lot of depends how new songs will work live and which ones from older material could suit them well. I feel there will be MAX 3-4 HTDAAB songs (vertigo for sure, possibly love and peace, cobl and mayby oots? it's Bono's favourite from the new album, but nobody knows- look what happened with kite), probably only 2 in a regular setlist. No way second encore will start with ABOY and contain yahweh- too similar to the current tour! Also I strongly believe we will see pop encore (mofo/disco/wowy) already on 4th leg, so perhaps next time they'll bring on some totally new idea.

Not impossible, they thought about doing it on Vertigo.

Like someone else said. Depends on the feel of the next album what gets played. U2 goes on feel during rehearsals. What they think flows and fits the theme of the new album. They wont even have an idea obviously until the next album is almost done 3 years from now. Speculating at this point is just that.

One listed though I would say is near impossible is Like A Song. Played once and the band didnt like the way it worked live. I doubt that one will ever be even attempted again.

If they did Please-->Streets, I would be very, very happy.

I'd hope not to have ABOY in the set, or Pride (although that's realistically going to stay). I like having Seconds and Two Hearts in there though...also, I think/hope Bad will be semi-regular. They've got to know it's nearly on the level of Streets in concert.

I love the idea of more Pop songs but I think your projected setlist is too similar to this tour. U2 wouldn't repeat themselves like that. I'm guessing we'll have 2-4 HTDAAB songs per night. Vertigo will stay I'm sure, but I'm not sure what else.

I hope U2 could maybe drop a couple of the "classics," like Pride and Bullet. Prolly won't happen, but it'd be nice. Leave room for some less played 90's stuff!

I think whatever U2's new album is like will make a serious difference in the whole live show - U2 don't tour as a greatest hits band, they tour to promote their new album and the whole show is built around that. I'm thinking whatever U2 comes up with next will be more experimental and/or a little more rocking/raw and maybe U2 will decide to do something really BIG and try to top ZooTV/Popmart. We'll see.

Maybe Streets wont segue with anything on the next tour. Seeing we missed out on the traditional red back drop and 'the lights' on this tour, maybe they'll take it right back next time round...

Where The Streets Have No Name
I Still Haven't Found What Im Looking For
With or Without You

Beautiful Day
*New Slow Song
40 (maybe)

PS - Id also like to see One moved up the set like it was on Zoo TV. Also the removal of Pride, Bullet and maybe even Sunday in place of some other stuff.

I think Pride and SBS should stay, Bullet will stick around for it's message but needs a better transition...
