the next tour- possible setlists!

alright U2 fans...so with the next album will come another tour, so lets here it, what do you think the next setlist will be (include snippets)...taking into account maybe 4-6 songs from the new album that will take up space...but other than those songs, and assuming a 25 song setlist with encore and everything....what 20 do you think they will play (obviously considering the slight changes in setlist from night to night).......I have been hearing from some people that they will play songs that they rarely play live or have never played before live, a song like red hill mining town or acrobat, something of that nature...so I'm very intrigued, and already trying to think of the setlist for the next tour.....and this question considers any and all songs associated with U2...so even songs like electrical storm and songs that aren't on official albums, etc......so share your setlists!

It's too hard to predict without knowing what kind of songs are in the new album. You can't make it flow with "New Song #1."

... impossible task, because we have to listen to the album first, have to hear, what the band was inspired by, if they even listened to older albums etc.

On the other hand, I'd bet that there are four staples in the set list from the beginning – if the shows are classic U2 rock shows, of course. If they radically change the tour concept, want to re-arrange tunes etc., it could differ. But ususally these tunes are no surprise:

- "Where The Streets Have No Name" (80-100%)
- "One" (100%)
- "Beautiful Day" (unfortunately 100%)
- "Vertigo" (90-100%)

plus
6-8 tunes from the new album

-> this leaves 8-10 song spots in the set list for more "Greatest Hits" (which U2 have a lot) and (hopefully) a few dust-off gems from their past, e.g. "The Unforgettable Fire" etc.

Streets is a given.

One, I think actually may have a chance of dropping off every once in awhile(call me an optimist).

BD, I think is still young enough to be a staple.

Vertigo, everyone seems to think this is a given, but I don't know, I think it may take the seat of Disco, a good single, but doesn't really fit into the next tour... at least that's my hope.

Most important would be for the less obvious melodies created for concert; "Love Is Blindness" is simplified live but it's much better in the studio version; same with "One" during Popmart which was overdone with all the strings and melodrama. Also, Bono should stop singing off-beat; With Or Without You sounds awful if he doesn't sing it properly; same with Streets.

I don't want any singles from HTDAAB or ATYCLB or any songs from Zooropa other than Lemon or any songs from Pop other than Do You Feel Loved?, Please, or MOFO.

I'd like them to rework some War songs like "Like a Song" and "The Drowning Man". No more. Sunday, New Year's; maybe have "40"
No more "Pride". I'd love an updating of "The Unforgettable Fire" and "Promenade" Maybe have "Bad" without the synth used live.

I'd love JT songs, but more of the infrequently played songs, especially "Exit", "Red Hill Mining Town"

From R&H: full on Zoo TV era Desire, Angel of Harlem, All I Want is You are fine. Hawkmoon 269, Heartland.

Everything from AB.

Screw the bellweather fans! U2 doesn't need them if they're gonna make a fuss during lesser known songs. I want great music!

I'd like to see Streets return to the opening spot. Too many tours now have had setlist structured around Streets 2/3 of the way through. Put Streets back to the start and immediately you will get something very different in terms of the setlist structure.

Of course they will stick too much to the same songs night after night (subject of much debate here) but at a minimum I'd like to see a setlist with a different structure and moving Streets out of it's now regular 2/3 of the way through spot will give us this.

Hey also with the 20th Aniversary JT thing perhaps they will play some of the grossly underplayed JT greatness like Trip Through Your Wires, In God's Country and Exit.

If they wont play UTEOTW I will be seriously miffed!

It would be good if they circulated a survey among hard core fans...we wouldn't risk BD to be incuded anymore!!!

Yeah, Bono sucks, he doesn't have it anymore. And everything they've done since 1991 is worthless.

And guys, as much as I would just die to hear Acrobat and RHMT, there's a reason they don't play them. At least with Acrobat, the band has consistently said it's too complex to do live.

Which is just proof that U2 sometimes really are full of shit and you can't take a lot of what they say seriously.

I mean, if Acrobat's too complex to play live, so are many of the songs they quite successfully have been playing for years. Hell, if they could do Mofo or Lemon live, Acrobat's a piece of cake. Lemon cake, maybe.

Thank God you are not in charge when it comes to making these decisions.

Back when I was a Tool fan, I actually hoped they would do this for real.
