It's crap, because we're probably gonna see what happened with Vertigo Tour, the gradual filtering out of current album songs as the set turns into a Greatest Hits tour all over again. At the Melbourne gig in '06, I only saw 4 bomb songs. A far cry from the 8 songs enjoyed by punters at some of the early Vertigo gigs.

Breathe has always been a questionable opener... Magnificent would be kind of cool, have to wait for Youtube videos tomorrow

I was wondering when they were going to change it up.

I loved that drum intro. Hope it's back by D.C.

I was there and I'm still surprised that they dropped Breathe. When Kingdom faded out I was ready for the start of Larry's drum intro but when I saw Bono and Edge on the stage I knew something was up.

Awesome, setlist already looks better... Breathe is a great song but Slot #1 was just the wrong place for it. I could see it opening the Encore...

I get the feeling that a/some band members were really not willing to let go of Breathe opening (and other things)... something must have finally "given".

Anyway, I feel this little change will do a lot...

Same effect as COBL opening vs. LAPOE...

i don't know, i think that was more because they skipped us on elevation, so they threw in a few more atty club songs, and remember u218 had just been released too.

i don't mind the change - it gets magnificent out of the way early

Just got back from the show... Agree with earlier poster, when all four members appeared on stage at the same time, you knew something was up. This was my 5th 360 show, and I think they should keep Magnificent as the opener (as much as I like Breathe).

One thing I was really surprised with... the GA floor was not crowded at all. I am VERY claustrophic, so I planned on hanging at the back. But I stood in front of the sound board (about 25 yards from the main stage) and I had tons of room around me --- a great vantage. I noticed at Boston #1 that GA did not look all that full. I wonder if its just a local ordinance thing...

I think something was up last minute, I mean it opened Sunday with a pretty strong reaction, and after Kingdom their was a pretty glaring gap and then they started playing Magnificent instead... its one thing to move it as opener, but they really should have slotted it in somewhere, I hope it doesn't die as it deserves to be there as a live song, instead of properly promoting NLOTH they're only going to make the promo worse, no one will ever get to know the material this way, and given the tepid reactions of NA crowds to Unknown Caller, I'd say that's next.

Sunday had way too many typical rocker hits even for this tour, but at least tonight they played Your Blue Room, and Stay was the acoustic song, that made my night (I reallky need them to do this full band again, ). Walk On was stronger tonight, and MLK continues to be gorgeous and add a strange intimate spirit to the huge environment (if only the tool and his girlfriend behind me weren't talking in my ear, shut up this is a awe-inspiring quiet song!). They left out the new intro for BD, and the almost Fez like Boots intro they'd been doing. Bono's voice seemed even stronger tonight and he was a little more relaxed, he seemed kind of remote last night, but I have to say they used the catwalks very little tonight.
