Finally a break from 'Bullet'

Cool song with good live versions, but out of all the war horses it was my pick to get shelved this tour. Still love Pride in the shows though. When was the last time in a full concert that bullet was not played?

Before this tour, it had missed just six shows since its debut. See the third paragraph here: U2gigs.com - FAQ

Hallelujah! Hopefully Pride and ISHFWILF will go too. Streets can stay though- it's U2's Born To Run.

STREETS is a must....but they REALLY REALLY need to take out that speech before it. I thought the African flags and speech from BONO last tour was bad.....

they should do BAD or MLK into Streets.....

one positive note: the RED screen is back!

I just wish Pride and One would go too or at least play them every two, three or four nights or maybe even never again...

I just joined this board and I'm amazed at the amount of people who want to see the older material dropped. I'm assuming or I could be wrong that most of these people have not been fans for more than 10 years. The first setlist of this tour contained only 8 song prior to 2000. U2's best music was before 2000 ie War, The Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree and even Achtung. I've seen people post that U2 should can Pride, With or Without You, One... I mean thats kind of like the Stones canning Satisfaction or Bruce canning Born to Run. U2 is still an awesome band but is nowhere near the band pre-2000. The passion from the shows of the Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, and Zoo Tv will never be matched.

I think its a shame that Bad isnt even played much anymore. Whens the last time U2 wrote a song like Bad. I mean its awesome.

^ I'm really happy to see it was left off the setlist. I almost feel guilty saying so.

I'm glad too see it go, but I'm afraid it's going to happen. The last time they got it right was on PopMart.

lot of good points, but PRIDE doesn't have the same passion anymore when played live to me. It's running through the motions, plus I never liked it live.

I'm all for SBS, one, and WOWY staying....

I'd rather hear Bullet than I Still Havent Found What I'm Looking For, which has never really done an awful lot for me tbh. One and Sunday Bloody Sunday have still got it imo.

However, I'm going to the first Milan show and must say I'm a little disappointed that I probably wont hear my two favourite U2 songs by the looks of it - Bullet and Until The End Of The World. Quite annoying considering they've been staples on the past couple of tours, and this just happens to be my first U2 show.

Hopefully one of the two makes into the set by the time they come to Scotland.

People who keep calling for Pride to stop returning clearly aren't noticing the energy it induces in the crowd, clearly the band are feeding off that and love to play it, its not just a matter of trumping it around as a greatest hit. Granted, sometimes they could put a little more life into it, but there have been some excellent recent performances, like the late Vertigo shows (evidenced on U23D), and the Slane performance was killer (all the band members having ear to ear smiles, clearly remembering having created it there was amazing as well).

Bullet needs some new life if it were to come back, since its always used in a reinvented way, but the Vertigo performance didn't really add anything, Elevation was great though.

I hope Bullet stays in the warhorse retirement home for this entire tour

But I totally disagree with people clamoring for Pride or Streets to be retired. Streets? This is the ultimate live song, even when it sounds bad (ok, not bad, but not in top form), its still amazing to hear it live. And speaking of Bad - this song should be mandatory, no questions asked. Why they don't play it as much as the other oldies boggles the mind. Actually, it should be the mandatory closer at every show. It is amazing live, and Bono always manages to make the lyrics interesting.
