The only song I really wish they would drop is Bullet. I've heard it live over 100 times and I'm really sick of it.

Keep.......Fast Cars!

Even though I haven't heard it over 100 times, I'm with ya', RR!
What can I say? Bullet is one of my least favorite u2 songs.
It seems to be one of their favorite live songs though.
At least I think I remember reading that somewhere.
So we'll just have to wait and see, if they'll drop it.

Drop:
Bullet
I still haven't found
Pride
One

Keep:
I will follow
The Electric Co
Out of Control
Gloria
New Years Day
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bad
Streets
With or Without You
One Tree Hill
Until the End of the World
Mysterious Ways
Beautiful Day
Vertigo

Add:
Rejoice
The Unforgettable Fire
Red Hill Mining Town
Desire
Stay
Discotheque
Electrical Storm

Agreed.

Actually, I love the live version from the Elevation tour, but I have no opinion of the Vertigo version, and the studio version is worthless.

Elevation is good for two things: I Got You and Four Seasons in One Day.

I won't miss it if they fark it off.

Stay and The First Time are absolute must add/keep songs.

Elevation is a no-brainer, but I love it live, especially the Milan version. They shouldn't drop it.

They should bring Please back, Staring at the sun, Stay, play One Tree Hill more often, Running to Stand Still, keep Until the End of the World, maybe Fast Cars (if Bono remembers the words), Kite, Mysterious Ways (I love the song so much more now after hearing it live). I would love to hear Electrical Storm live, and In A Little While, as well as some of the Bomb songs they dropped somewhere along the tour like a better version of Miracle Drug and Original of the Species. Also keep the very old stuff which was a nice surprise at the Vertigo shows.

I don't care about Bullet, Pride, WOWY, etc. much, not even One at this stage, because I have so many recordings of One live, that, even though it's one of my favourite songs, I am getting tired of it (except maybe the orchestra versions).

Why? They almost played Mofo on Vertigo Tour, Edge said in an interview that they were indeed rehearsing it. Besides who would suppose that after Zoo TV we would hear Zoo Station ever again! All is really possible.

i know but it wouldnt really suit u2's new style of music

mofo and miami are the most far away sound from u2 as possible
sure its possible but its very unlikely
i would love to see it live though

Pffft, just get them to play Achtung Baby in sequence...

Otherwise, definitely drop Pride. And tell Bono to stop yelling "Africa! Africa! Africa!" during Streets.

Playing Van Diemens Land or Seconds would be favourite, too... or MLK/Streets like at the Super Bowl show.

Of course, you do all realise that the majority of the people who go to U2 concerts probably have never even heard of most of the songs we've mentioned here (ZOMG TEG H3RETICZ!11!one!) so we can just keep dreaming, unless U2 announce like a "diehard fans only" or "Interference members only" tour.

Either way, people will complain about the setlist and song choices, so in the long run, what we've all said is about as relevant as one of Edge's guitar picks.

Drop:

-Pride..(when was the last time Bono sang it like on the Unforgettable fire album?)
-One..(for now on ,known as the Africa songs,which is as worst as being tag as for a commercial)
-Bullet..(doesnt get that much of a responce from the audience live,actually)
-Mysterious ways...(Enough of the "gimmick" woman on stage to dance)

Add:

-So cruel.(deserve the spotlight on a tour.)

-A celebration.(Fun,Fun Fun song..shake! shake shake!)

-Even better than the real thing(It needed a rest on the last tour,now deserve to be back on the next one)

-God's country..(not just a fraudy snippet,full song,full band)

Drop:
- One.

I'm actually not too sure how common this opinion is here, but whenever I forget this song exists, I feel much, much happier.
