Agreed, I miss the segue. How awesome would it be to have Unknown Caller leading into Streets. I get spine tingles just imagining it.

With respect to Desmond Tutu, his eyes are kind of funny when he says "ONE!" during the speech.

i mentioned this before when talking about segues in a past thread. That song by , i think its by Peter, Bjorn & John , Young Folks, would be a better lead in to streets.lol. then what their doing now.

yeah, I agree...something seems cut short in some way....not sure what it is exactly...I like the harmonics Edge does (ZooTV style), but something doesn't feel complete about the intro...maybe we just need that RTSS--->Streets segue again

I love love love the Desmond Tutu speech (that man is one of the coolest dudes on Earth), but I do agree, the Streets intro needs to be saaaavooooorrrrreeeed.

Unknown Caller leads into The Unforgettable Fire. Don't you get spine tingles imagining that?

UC just stops and then UF starts, no real segue there per se. I mean something like the outro organ in UC morphing into the Streets intro. Just a thought. It's all good mate.

I don't mind the Tutu speech, I actually think it's quite a nice idea and it's better than Bono rambling on and on about Africa on stage. They did a decent job with that. The only thing I find a little ackward is that everyone, at least those who don't know the setlist, expect ONE to come on after the speech and not Streets. Obviously it wouldn't work with One because Bono still insists to have a few words before One.

So you think the speech leading into Streets is a good thing? You would not prefer a song leading into it?

Depends on the song that leads into Streets. UC would fit musically, but not thematically. Obviously, there is a "political" theme running through the last third of the show, so the speech fits right there where it is. And I also think Tutu't enthusiasm builds up a certain excitement that is good for Streets. But, as I said, the emphasis on ONE is a little misleading.

But I also understand that the band wants to have this speech and that they want to have it somewhere around Streets and One. It's better than Bono's Africa speeches, though.

I think the speech is quite nice and I met a lot of people who liked it.

I like the speech just fine. Just would like another spot for it, like, right before the encore or something.

The speech only works before Streets or One, and they won't play it before One, because it's Bono speech time.

So the setlist sucks, UC is a weak track, and now the intro to Streets is not that good...

is there any reason to go see this tour?

Well, let me tell you, if I have to choose between having the speech "work", and Streets "work", yeah, I'll sort of choose Streets. Cos right now, the speech aint working in front of Streets.
