Is Ultraviolet permanantly gone??

Am I the only one who prefers Ultraviolet (x 10) to HMTMKMKM live in the encore slot?

I mean I love hold me but Ultraviolet is one of their best songs! (IMO). For those who have attended different shows with both HMTM and UV, was there a noticeably better response from the crowd for HMTM? Do you guys think that it will be absent for the rest of the tour (since its been missing since Mexico II) and go the way of the Unforgettable Fire (RIP)?

I really hope it makes a return for Miami

Anaheim and Montreal might get it. (ie cities with 2 shows where 360 hasn't been through before.

Otherwise, I think your out of luck.

I really love that song. I would've loved to had heard it last night here in Edmonton. But I dunno, HMTMKMKM was pretty good live too. So perhaps one day there will be room for both of them in a set

Crowd response is heaps better for HMTMKMKM but UV's the better song if you ask me.

It is really puzzling that they don't just play both. They did it once and never came back to the idea.

Odds are it will probably return for Anaheim II, though I'd much prefer The Fly. We all got to experience UV back in '09 so it's had its time in North America. I've never experienced HMTMKMKM live, and personally I cannot wait to hear it.

This. Minus the grammatical errors.

Personally, good riddance. Wish they'd been doing HMTMKMKM from the start.

Word. HMKM > UV > WOWY > MOS would work great. HMKM > WOWY doesn't.

Definitely prefer UV. I love Hold Me but if it were up to me, I'd pick UV to be the song I hear on my last concert this tour. It's been breathtaking to hear this again this tour.

I like both songs, but definitely lean UV. I think UV has a better light/stage show, but not as good of a crowd response as HMTMKMKM.

I agree that probably only Anaheim and Montreal will get UV--too bad the U.S. and Canada didn't get a few more 2nd nights this leg.

Ultraviolet is my favorite song. So naturally I prefer to hear it. HMetcetera is a good song in my opinion, but I don't like it nearly as much UV. And UV->WOWY works really well.

I expect UV to be played in Anaheim and Montreal, and then never again.

I prefer HMTMKMKM
but I thought Ultraviolet did a far better job at that position in the setlist

I really wish they'd just play both. It wouldn't kill them to play an extra song in the encore.
