First Time NYD is Played on the Tour - a Non-Issue?!

I know some consider this a "tired warhorse", but I am shocked by the lack of dialogue in regards to its introduction on this tour!

Was this not a big deal for anyone else?

I even had a thread closed about the performance of it because it was not specific enough and belonged in the Dublin 3 setlist thread?!

If I am missing something, I would really appreciate someone informing me how this was not a big enough deal to discuss and be deserving of its own thread?

For me, it was kind of epic to introduce it at this point in the tour....

kinda un-epic for me. It's one of my least favourite U2 songs

I don't get what there is to be suprised or excited about. It's been on every tour and will remain a part of every tour.

I was "meh" about this song when I saw them in 93 and I'm "meh" about it now...

It's just never been one of my faves

Because in order to start a new thread about a particular live performance of a particular song you have to dislike it and bitch about it.

You're doing it wrong, man.

I like NYD, and it's never a bad addition to a setlist, but I can take it or leave it. This performance seemed rather uninspired and somewhat boring... untypical for the song.

I thought it was a great performance, quicker than last few tours, Larry hitting harder. I liked it!

I know I'm a strong critic of the warhorses but I wouldn't mind seeing them do NYD because it still sounds fresh.

I know it's a warhorse, and it wouldn't be the end of the world if they didn't play it on the tour, but it's one of the warhorses that to me still sounds fresh and exciting. I love it, and even if I think I'm tired of it, the opening notes never fail to get me excited if I hear it at a concert I'm attending.

Yeah, it was kind of blah...
It would have been better if it was played after UTEOTW.

Or October

exactly.

if you would have titled it:

"NYD...sweet jesus, waht the F are they doin??!?!!?!?!?!!?!"

and then said something like, "they should have played electric storms!"

it would have been 11 pages long by now
