Ah yes, Waverley Park. The ground which was flouted as the mutha of all football grounds. Unfortunately, someone decided to make it a hole and place it in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

What was the setlist?? And while we're on the subject, Ax, Popmart setlists. They didn't vary a great deal, did they?

What I've always thought must be terrifying is when diesel-electric locomotives occasionally flame out, i.e. a huge lick of flame shoots out the vents at the top of the locomotive. It's never a good thing, but you can keep going if it happens. I've seen photos of overworked locomotives flaming out and it looks fucking impressive.

Your theory?
That is to say it is yours?
Which you own?
And is yours?

I don't see the Brontosaureses.

What was the setlist?? And while we're on the subject, Ax, Popmart setlists. They didn't vary a great deal, did they?
Waverley seems to be more charming now that it's significantly smaller and more just a public park.


Setlist:


Setlist:

1. Mofo
2. I Will Follow
3. Gone
4. Even Better Than The Real Thing
5. Last Night On Earth
6. Until The End Of The World / Break On Through (snippet)
7. New Year's Day
8. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
9. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Stand By Me (snippet)
10. Bad / Never Tear Us Apart (snippet) / Walk On The Wild Side (snippet) / All I Want Is You (snippet)
11. Staring At The Sun
12. Sunday Bloody Sunday
13. Bullet The Blue Sky
14. Please
15. Where The Streets Have No Name

encore(s):
16. Discothèque / Life During Wartime (snippet) / Stayin' Alive (snippet)
17. If You Wear That Velvet Dress
18. With Or Without You
19. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
20. Mysterious Ways
21. One
22. MLK

Unsurprisingly, the usual Popmart set...but i've always enjoyed the boot, even if it isn't highest quality.

What I love is that they chose to put Waverley in the geographic centre of Melbourne without considering that traffic flows and infrastructure are not - and rarely ever - geared around this little piece of trivia.

Melbourne's set was:

1. Mofo
2. I Will Follow
3. Gone
4. Even Better Than The Real Thing
5. Last Night On Earth
6. Until The End Of The World / Break On Through (snippet)
7. New Year's Day
8. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
9. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Stand By Me (snippet)
10. Bad / Never Tear Us Apart (snippet) / Walk On The Wild Side (snippet) / All I Want Is You (snippet)
11. Staring At The Sun
12. Sunday Bloody Sunday
13. Bullet The Blue Sky
14. Please
15. Where The Streets Have No Name

encore(s):
16. Discothèque / Life During Wartime (snippet) / Stayin' Alive (snippet)
17. If You Wear That Velvet Dress
18. With Or Without You
19. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
20. Mysterious Ways
21. One
22. MLK

And you're right about the lack of variety. Popmart had the most static sets of any U2 tour ever. Compare the Melbourne set above with the opening night set in Las Vegas some ten months earlier. A tiny amount of song changes, and the first half of the main set is in a slightly different order.

1. Mofo
2. I Will Follow
3. Even Better Than The Real Thing
4. Into The Groove (snippet) / Do You Feel Loved? / I Feel Love (snippet)
5. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
6. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
7. Last Night On Earth
8. Gone
9. Until The End Of The World
10. If God Will Send His Angels
11. Staring At The Sun
12. Staring At The Sun
13. Daydream Believer (Edge Karaoke)
14. Miami / My Mammy (snippet) / Cuba (snippet)
15. Bullet The Blue Sky / Thank You (Falettin Me Be Mice Elf Again) (snippet) / America (snippet)
16. Please
17. Where The Streets Have No Name / Playboy Mansion (snippet)

encore(s):
18. Discothèque / Discothèque Howie B Hairy B Mix (snippet)
19. If You Wear That Velvet Dress
20. With Or Without You
21. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
22. Mysterious Ways
23. One

Comments: U2 botch Staring At The Sun the first time around and perform it again.

Mmm... I haven't seen it lately.

See I'd only download Bad and MLK from this as you've got the rest on the DVD.

I must say, it disappoints me that U2 began Popmart with Gone --> UTEOTW but quickly got rid of it. The songs are natural partners, with UTEOTW's wailing intro following the general wailing-guitarness of Gone.

True that.

Is that Las Vegas boot sound any good? Cos I might get that one.

And just as a disclaimer before I leave, Radiohead's setlist website has a bunch of interesting little things on there that you might wanna take a look at if you want to add anything to u2gigs.

Another reason I can't wait for the new album: so u2.com and u2gigs.com get rid of the hutdab red/black/red/black theme. I'm over it.

You know, I haven't heard it, but thinking of it now, it sounds like that would be better than Gone --> Ebert.

What are your hopes setlist wise for the next tour?

New tour forum/reopening

Could one of you kind gentlemen most me a link to the Kunstmuseum thread? I wanna go through it cos I was not there.

Yes, Las Vegas is proshot (DVD)/soundboard (audio).

Oh yes, what kind of features? Now's a good time for us to work on adding new stuff before the tour rocks around.

Did you ever watch Monty Python's Flying Circus? If not, I highly recommend it.

I'm bringing up the link now, but it's a whole bunch of pie charts and lists of words that Thom Whine sings during shows... they were interesting at any rate.
