"I'll Go Crazy..." as a closer?

Listening to this song last night kind of prompted me to think of this as a potential closer... it kind of has a "goodbye" feel to it, but also sends everyone off with a high... I can picture Bono singing passionately "But I know I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight!"

The guitar work is a little bit like Walk On, but I think this song is a potential closer... thoughts?

I see it as an early-to-mid main set song. Not at all a closer.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Yes, me too. It's a bit of a "Miracle Drug" really.

Not a chance. So far, Unknown Caller sounds most like a closer to me. It could be because the ending reminds me so much of the 2006 versions of Kite.

I still say NLOTH. I can just see everyone chanting 'No! Line!' over and over on their way out.

It would be a better opener than a closer, setting the scene to have some fun that night. Yes it's a little too slick, but it would work.

No not a closer I feel more like a 5th to a 12th song in set.

Agree with this here.

Totally unrelated to where I want this in the setlist(right near Beautiful Day), is that when listening to this song, i get the feeling that this could be U2's career finale, good bye single release after the last album. Dont ask me why, but it kind of has that "passing the torch" of their music, message and work to the next generation feel.
