Larry talks about Glasto setlist

from @u2



Larry Mullen Jr. did a short interview Monday night on Zane Lowe's BBC radio programme, and the topic du jour was U2's upcoming performance at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. He said that the band feels that it has "something to prove" with Friday's performance, and that the festival setting means U2 is "out of our comfort zone."

But the brunt of the conversation involved what U2 plans to play for a crowd that won't necessarily be as warm to U2 as a 360 tour audience. Larry said the band is "taking a lot of time and energy" to work on the setlist, and they're still going through different possibilities:

"Everybody has a view on how it should go … there's the 'Where The Streets Have No Name' [as the opening song] camp, and then there's the more subtle approach -- the Achtung Baby dynamic approach where you sort of build slowly. And then there are those who think we should open with "40." (laughs) It goes on, and there are an awful lot of opinions."



sounds exciting for sure. i wish U2 played more with something to prove you know?

Sounds like maybe Larry's in the Achtung Baby "dynamic" camp.

I have to say I like "Streets" full band or "40" starting with just Bono better. It could be completely different for those who don't follow U2 setlists, but I don't like the idea of their not doing something almost completely unique to start.

Surely this is about U2 proving to people the streets isnt the only U2 song that sounds amazing live?

Mofo would be perfect. I like that an EBTTRT opening would be dance-ish, not quite what people would expect, but Mofo would be a proper statement opening.

i like how you've gone from saying "stop expecting [very unlikely song]" to anyone who has the audacity to suggest something like Discotheque and so on to "Mofo would be perfect!"
