Rose Bowl DVD setlist predictions

Alright, so you probably know by now that the Rose Bowl gig's being filmed for DVD and broadcast on YouTube. As a document of the 2009 legs of the tour, U2 will probably play a setlist that showcases and sums up this year's gigs.

So what do you think they'll play?

I expect one of two things, as the band have got fairly stuck on the one setlist this month. Option 1 is that it will be the 18 October 2009, Norman setlist, probably with In A Little While removed (it seems to me Unknown Caller has clearly been resurrected in readiness for filming). Option 2 is that they'll bring Your Blue Room into the mix to showcase all the NASA stuff and bring it to a wider audience via DVD. I'm currently leaning towards this option. I think if they do YBR, they might not just slot it into IALW's slot from the Norman set; they may instead return to an earlier segue of YBR --> Beautiful Day to avoid stalling the show with YBR/UC in succession.

So that would mean a setlist like this:

1. Breathe
2. Boots
3. Magnificent
4. Mysterious Ways
5. ISHFWILF
6. Stuck
7. NLOTH
8. Elevation
9. Your Blue Room
10. Beautiful Day
11. Unknown Caller
12. Until The End Of The World
13. The Unforgettable Fire
[You know how the rest goes]

I can think of a couple of other permutations, including YBR/NYD as was done in late September.

Your predictions?

nope, i just discovered this now

personally i think that they don't rotate the setlist enough but they also need to keep the casuals in the crowd happy but they should also play small gigs for the hardcore fans

I have to agree, if they want to make the DVD as interesting as possible then they will have to include the YBR NASA stuff as well as Unknown Caller, I'd be perfectly happy if they do the same set as you've predicted.

I would just love UC and YBR on a DVD. Something tells me that YBR won't make it though. I think it came back just for Houston. Although you are right about the visuals, they seem to have spent a great deal of time and effort on them not to be recorded...

Which intro do you think they'll use for UltraViolet? My guess is Funeral Blues...

For the UV intro, my money's on the Zoobaby, which seems to have been used every show since its Tampa debut.

Maybe the setlist will be as Toronto 1, plus Stuck, Bad and SUC as bonus tracks.

I think it'll be the same as Houston, with UC thrown in, but Axver's order would be better. If they have to remove a track from the DVD, it will probably be Stuck.

All I'm hoping is that UC and YBR are both there and it's not either or! There won't be any other surprises as far as the setlist goes.....

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference in those intro's and moreover, can we hear/see them somewhere?

God I hope they toss out Stuck, but it's become such a fixture that I don't see it going anywhere. Plus, even though it's on two DVDs already, neither of them documents the acoustic version.

I like RoomOnFire's suggestion of UTEOTW/Stay/UF. Stay followed by UF sounded great the few times it was done in September.
