Moment of Surrender is a LAME closer

Now I havent seen the show yet...but Ive listened to it enough and I truely feel at this point that MoS is a great song..but very lame for a closer. Something is missing from the encore. IMHO - as the band leaves the stage...Larry starts the beat of Out of Control & the band comes back to blast our balls off one last time. Hell they did it with Vertigo on the last tour...why not end it with a rocker on this one.. and with their first single nonetheless.
What do ya'll think? Just image how friggin nuts the place would be IF they came back & ended the show with that!!!

Yeah, it kinda ended in a whimper for me...

I LOVED how they reworked "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight". It was a pleasant surprise.

there is a very common thread between all these complaints.

Great song and a great closer. Having said that, I think Edge was playing piano in the wrong key for awhile. Sounded like some clunkers in there. I hate to even bring it up because he was awesome for the entire evening. Don't think I ever saw him sing that much in a show. Haven't seen the group since 2001.

I know the old classics is what gets the whole place rockin', but I thought the new material was the best part of the show. Really liked the Crazy remix.

It was one of the hightlights for me when I saw the show. The band, Bono especially, is very much into it. And I feel it has improved with time. I'm always amazed how Bono can pull up that voice at the end of the show.

I don't like it at all. Actually I don't like the last 3 songs.
I always try to leave the stadium earlier.

I could never do that.

OK, I could live without WOWY. UV is nice, mainly because of the special effects, but I'm not a big fan of that song. But I could never miss Moment of Surrender.

It is an awesome closer! Seriously, I wouldn't have expected it to be so good live, but it's up there as a fav or at least joint fav of the new stuff live. Bono really gets lost in the song.

Hate it on the record and I said before that if I was wrong about how it would sound live I would apologize. well here it is: I am sorry!!! because it was so much better live than I expected.

Problem is: It IS a lame closer. drop WOWY, replace it with MOS and play something else at the end. UV, MW/FLY/ES, MOS, BAD and the show ends kick ass

it is a downer in its beauty and you have the feeling(at least I did) that the concert wasnt complete yet. Something I have NEVER had at a U2 concert before.

zwervers2 that's a good idea. MOS is a way more intimate and emotional song that WOWY is right now, a switch around and a different last song would be interesting.
