welcome back willie

and this quote will make some people gush with excitment...

"I realised a little while ago that all of the territories that the tour is visiting didn’t see the Elevation tour, which might give us a bit more leeway in choice of material for the show. (Though The Edge always laughs at me if I get concerned that we are repeating songs that an audience saw us play “only” four or five years ago). However, I do think we can have fun with the set list"

Great that he's back, I always feel more comfortable when he's hanging around on the tour. However...

Please tell that doesn't mean there will be more ATYCLB songs? The most I'm looking forward to the pop encore with Mofo and Discotheque, please, no more ATYCLB songs! Elevation and BD is really enough.

If I'm not mistaken don't they have to add visuals to about 5-7 songs because its going to be dark the entire show unlike the European leg, which started off in daylight?

I'm praying for a Popcore. I'll be at the show and want something fresh

Actually, it will be already dark 'bout the time they got on stage, at 10pm.

At least, in South America.

This tour is in desparate need of some full-band Walk On.
