I have been waiting along time to hear this track live,but it appears as U2 have moved on to Even Better Than the Real Thing,which I love, but no stringray sucks.

Nope not at all. EBTTRT is the opener they've been trying to find for three years now. I so hope they'll keep it for the NA shows. Stingray was okay live, but this bloody rocks!

I would rather have Major Tom/EBTTRT.

Stingray was just a kinda cool, funky, different intro. I'd much rather Even Better.

Oh, I definitely agree. EBTTRT is the opener 360 should have had since the start, though Breathe and Stingray were great openers too. It's a great way to start the show, even judging by videos. Can't wait to experience it personally.

NLOTH is the opener 360 should have had from the start and still have now.

I didn't think of that, and that would have been great too. Now I wish they opened with NLOTH back in 2009.

I've been saying this since ... well, June 2009! Can't believe this opportunity slipped the band by - and that they've completely dropped the song. It was electric live and really got the place going in a way most other new songs didn't.

But EBTTRT is also a great opener, so I'm not too down on it like when BD was opening.

I think Bowie into Stingray into EBTTRT would be aces.

Nah. Stingray was fun but mostly anti-climactic and ended too abruptly. The dead zone in between songs was just too awkward for my tastes. Plus BD didn't fit at all after it.

Agreed.

Stingray was okay, but EBTTRT is the far better opener. Much better than Beautiful Day.

I might be one of the few though who also enjoyed Breathe. Though NLOTH would have been the best opener for this tour.

I think that would be quite hard to pull off, for Edge. Stingray is played on a regular six string(the Explorer) and for Even Better he needs the 12 string Rickenbacker, so in oder to segue he'd have to swap guitars really quickly.
