Any Pop Songs on 360? Place your bets

Anyone think we will ever get a song from Pop played on this tour? The Discotheque snippet was nice but I want more.

If we get any at all I'm guessing it'll be either Discotheque, Gone, or Staring at the Sun.

If we do get a Pop song (and I really hope we do), it had better be a full-on, incendiary song rather than some wimpy acoustic version of SATS or IGWSHA.

C'mon, Bono, at least snippet that verse! Especially when you're playing HMTMKMKM. Then, you have no excuse not to.

Also, if they want to play a song from Pop, I think Discotheque > Crazy Tonight would be a -worthy segue. Just sayin'.

I think the Discotheque snippet in Crazy Tonight is a foreshadowing of things to come.

Bono always said that the Crazy Tonight remix is in that position in the set to "disorient" the audience before the show moves into its more "political" side. I think if they did Vertigo > Discotheque > Crazy Tonight, that would be the perfect "disorientation" that they are trying to achieve!!

Seriously, they need to play that song, in full, on this tour!

If not, I think they could make Gone work somewhat earlier in the set, maybe after I Will Follow and before Get On Your Boots?

And what about Mofo??? How about this: City of Blinding Lights > Mofo > Vertigo> Discotheque > Crazy Tonight


WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW I WANT POP ON THIS TOUR

Wouldn't that just be amazing????

Any and every die-hard POP fans in the stadium would pass out. And then all the casual fans would just be like, "Umm...is this supposed to happen at a U2 concert?"

Which is a shame, because it sounds pretty great live:


EDIT: This is really cool:

I get the feeling if they had any intention of playing something from Pop we would have heard it by now. Even the Discotheque snippet during Crazy has disappeared which makes me feel it was just thrown in so they could say that they had acknowledged the album in some way.

Topic: No

Pop and October (minus Gloria) are going to be locked away for many shows to come, unless I see something more noteworthy than a random rehearsal of IGWSHA.

Edge is apparently still playing the Discotheque riff even though Bono hasn't snippeted it for a few shows. It's only been 1.5 weeks since
 
Mercy
was played for the first time ever. I don't think anyone can rule out anything just yet. If Vertigo can get two performances of a Pop song then surely 360 can get three or more I'm hoping they haven't forgotten that HMTMKMKM wasn't on Pop and doesn't fulfill the Pop quota for the tour

If I recall correctly Gone (or at least the main riff) was rehearsed in Turin.

It'll really be a shame if they end up not playing any Pop songs on this tour. It would be the first U2 tour post-Popmart that didn't have any.

I really wish they would play Please. It is after all once of Bono's favorite U2 songs.
