Last song of the night

I'm not sure if this has already been talked about, but what should they end with? I know the obviously choice would be Cedars, but I'd like to on an upper.

My vote is Breathe.

Breathe strikes me as a natural encore opener. With the powerful drum intro, I imagine it would be used in an attention-grabbing slot such as that.

I don't think a new song will close. In an ideal world, I'd like them to continue using Bad/40. That was fucking magic when it appeared at some Vertigo shows. I'd rank it as the best closer U2 have ever played, even ahead of 40 by itself or Love Is Blindness.

If it turns out to be an old song then I thought One was a great closer.

Streets.

Wont happen, but I think it would be a cool closer and have been saying so for a couple of tours.

If they closed the show with something unexpected and rocking like The Fly-Breathe-Exit, my mind would be officially blown.

i've thought that for a while. similar feel to the uplifting ending walk on was, but better (i liked walk on, you just can't top streets).

bad-40 is my favorite i have seen.

40 was a little disappointing for me on the last tour, if they would play it like lovetown that would be my first choice.

Don't ever let "40" die, but MOS is an intriguing idea.

I have never understood why they don't close with Walk On, it is so fitting for a closer. That or 40 would be the 2 best imo.

They did so, on the whole 2001 tour.

I don't think Cedars will close the shows. It would be great if they closed it with Kite, like on the Australian shows. That would be perfect actually. Bringing back Love Is Blindness to that slot would be amazing too. I don't really want Breathe to close the show, but I think it would sound great as the last 3 song encore opener. It would re-inject unexpected new life into the show.
