The ultimate closer...

So, if U2 were always to end their shows with the same song, what do you think it should be? I'm going with "All I Want is You," but that's purely for sentimental reasons.

Walk On made an excellent closer, and I think they should stick with it.

I think they should end them all with 40.

It's perfect for a closer.

40! There's nothing like the feeling of being one of 15,000+ people leaving the venue and singing "How long to sing this song" into the streets!

I never got to experience this, and I sure want to. So I am going with not just 40, but Bad into 40!!!

"One" because it always makes me bawl like a baby when they play it live, and I want to leave the concert with that feeling!

Walk On! Beats them all.

PLUS: Did they use Love Is Blindness as a closer? I though They used Fools Rush In (The Elvis song whatever the name is)

Actually that was called "Can't Help Falling In Love", used during ZooTV as the closer. Great closer, though I prefer either Walk On or 40. Both work equally well.

I like the Walk On / 40 idea, though I would hope that it is a full version of 40, and not just a snippet.
