I'm thinking this would make a really sweet alternate UF:

1. The Three Sunrises
2. A Sort Of Homecoming
3. Love Comes Tumbling
4. Boomerang II
5. Pride
6. Indian Summer Sky
7. Wire
8. MLK
9. The Unforgettable Fire
10. Promenade
11. Bass Trap
12. Bad

But then I'm hideously sleep deprived, so it may actually sound utterly stupid.

Aside from the two obvious reasons I wouldn't like it, I think that's indeed quite interesting, though Wire > MLK seems pretty jarring.

Two? EPAA not being there is one. Is the other Pride still lingering? I think it works in that context.

Wire --> MLK is based on the fact that the band did it that way live.

Yeah EPAA and Pride


Did they now?
I've only heard one TUF boot, and it was super poor quality so I barely remember it now.

All I ever want from U2 is for them to play TUF live, but that's way too much to ask these days isn't it?

My recent infatuation with Bruce Springsteen is not healthy for my U2 one. Last night he played straight through is fourth and third albums.

You MUST download the 21 March 1985, Chicago bootleg. I bet it's on U2Start. Amaaazing audience quality. Or for soundboard, 21 November 1984, Dortmund (unfortunately incomplete).

For part of the UF Tour, the standard opening five tracks was 11OTT/IWF/Wire/MLK/UF. It changed up a bit over time, though.

I keep hoping. It was on a Best Of ...

And Bruce's sets are fucking awesome. I wish U2 would do even half that variety and diversity.

The guy's opened with like...I think he's up to 20 straight different openers. Plus the fact that he premieres a song almost every night
PLUS the fact that he's played over 100 songs this tour ...it's...hard to get over that.

OH! And he often responds to sign requests, even though usually they're songs that were already on the set list, but still it's the thought that counts


All right, I'm turning off the 'net til after my final. Be back in about 2 hours, I'll let you know how it went

Dear U2,

Model yourself on this.

Sincerely,
Sane U2 fans everywhere

Good luck!

I think I'm about to vanish and get some sleep ...

Where's phanan gone? He must be so engrossed in Aussie history that he's passing up the chance to jump in on a Bruce conversation!

Stupid work got in the way.

Springsteen setlists.

I can't believe he did two full albums at that show last night. Granted, it wasn't part of the actual tour but a benefit gig instead, but still.

I mean, imagine if U2 did The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree back to back...
