Am I the only one that thinks that Fez/BB would be really boring?

Am I?

Do you honestly think that it wouldn't be pretty boring if they played it live? Like the song, but I don't know that it fits at a stadium gig. I'm all for switching up setlists, but I just can't see Fez/BB being the right thing to do it with.

Heck, I'd rather hear the wonderful NLOTH and Breathe make a comeback if they want to drop out something for another NLOTH song.

I am, however a big fan of hearing Zooropa again - I'd LOVE to hear them open with it! Coming out to the intro... it would be brilliant!

They should open with Always Forever Now segueing into Zooropa.

Fez could be pretty good with some work

Walk On is really boring... I'd be happy if Fez replaced it.

"walk on" is a fucking embarassment. it's shameful and exemplifies the worst aspects of pop music.

Dude... really? Walk On is a good song. It's just not meant to be at a U2 show.

It's trite, cliche ridden, and devoid of real emotion. It's absolutely pathetic. By far their worst song. Actually, I think it's the first bad song they ever put on an album.

I'll take it.

Person A: I really hate this song because of opinion x, opinion y and opinion z.

Person B: ZOMG YOU HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE PERSON YOU HAVE NO SOUL. WHY DO YOU HATE U2??????

That should cover it.

Now, back to Fez-Being Born. I think I've said in the past that I don't know how well it would go over live. I think the Fez bit works really well as an intro, but the rest of the song - while I love it - might fall a little flat.

But I dunno. Tonight while in this thread, I feel like I'd love for them to try it.

The song soars more than any other song on NLOTH. The part where Bono just shouts is my favorite part of the album, and I'm not a big fan of NLOTH.

i think it'd be awesome, as would always forever now into zooropa. imo if they're gonna play slow shit i'd rather it be something atmospheric, imo.

 
imo

Personally I think it has the potential to be something epic. If that tribute band in Chile could pull it off as well as they did, no doubt U2 could as well (search "Fez Being Born Chile" on youtube). Fez-BB into NLOTH would have been a killer pair, and also could have been one of their best opening sequences, but at this point will likely remain a dream.

it's an ok / good song
works really well on the album

would prolly be fine but nothing special live
agreed that bringing back No Line and/or Breathe makes more sense

I wanted to post something long regarding how well (or rather not) it would go over with the audience if U2 would play Fex-Being Born. But as usual, Salome has summarized it perfectly.
