Was Elevation at the end purposely done?SPOILER

Ok so Elevation was played at the start of the encore and not to open..

Im wondering if this was actually done on purpose or if something went wrong.
They played All you Need is Love after Sgt Peppers and didnt go straight into the Influx mix so Im wondering if there was a problem or it was intended.

Maybe Im thinking too much about it, but it just seemed odd.
It didnt matter, opening with BD was cool, but I do wonder...

Any thoughts?

Umm, you kinda gave the spoiler away in the title.

How shitty am I, I have the worlds almighty greatest fastest wickedest internet connection at work but they have some f*in firewall or something that stops streaming live stuff. So I didn't see it.

But I'll be able to get it off u2.com I spose.

I was thinkin DUH, you just spoiled it in your title!

I dont think it was a mistake...that was pretty much the way the rehearsed the show according to the rumors, seems intentional to me.

It was done that way on purpose. The setlist read Beautiful Day first and Elevation in the encore.

Although in my personal opinion, BD worked well as an opener, it didn't work as well as elevation has been working, although it was cool to a changeup like that.

I'd like to see elevation continuing as a show opener and BD somewhere near the bottom of the main setlist. I think UTEOTW works better to carry the momentum and energy of elevation than does BD.

Just my opinion!

"Beautiful Day" doesn't pack as much punch as "Elevation" does for an opener. When those first power chords hit in "Elevation" it is pure madness (great shit), but with "Beautiful Day" it was like one of those 'church' atmospheres.

The Notre Dame show did not seem like a rock show for some reason. The vibe didn't seem as electrifying as it usually is (in my opinion). I also think it was the most crowd-friendly setlist I've ever seen. No "In a little While" or "The Fly" ... hmmmmm. Interesting - but not rocking. Though I'd like to say that "Angel of Harlem" sounds great in it's 're-invention'.

I'm still looking for my 'kibbles' n' bits', also I stole Malibu Whoretense's plastic shoes for a chew toy.

And I think this spoils everything.
I won't be going to my show now because of this.

While I very much enjoyed "Elevation" as an opener, I thought "Beautiful Day" worked just as well. I think I just liked hearing Bono yell "The heart is a bloom!" over and over before the full band kicked in.

I see Elevation remaining an opener, I'd like to see The Fly open the encore
