Setlist Predictions / Discussion

Based on what you have heard and read, create a reasonable setlist for the new tour. The "Horizon Tour 2009-2010". The return to Achtung Baby creativity (like HTDAAB brought back Boy), I have included a Pop/Achtung kind of encore. Also included some pair ups used from previous tours. Here is my look at a possible setlist idea.

01 No Line on the Horizon
02 Get on Your Boots
03 Vertigo / Stories for Boys
04 I Will Follow
05 I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
06 The Unforgettable Fire
07 Beautiful Day
08 Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own
09 Unknown Caller
10 October
11 New Year's Day
12 Pride (In the Name of Love)
13 Bad / The First Time
14 Angel of Harlem -- acoustic B&E
15 Stay (Faraway, so Close!) -- acoustic B&E
16 Moment of Surrender
17 All I Want is You
18 Where the Streets Have No Name
encore
19 Mofo
20 Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
21 With or Without You
encore
22 Elevation
23 I'll Go Crazy if I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
24 "40"

To me, it seems ridiculous to be attempting to predict setlists when we've only heard one song. Written descriptions and beach clips really give very little hint on where or how a given song could work within a set.

But no, let's not heed the lessons we learnt last time around ...

Uh, since we haven't heard the songs, it's hard to predict setlists.

But in the interest of "having fun with it" I'll predict that GOYB will indeed be the second song, not the first. It's not intro music. The way it starts with a drum fill just screams out to be played second, to make a crowd already screaming at the conclusion of the set's opener scream even louder with the opening notes of the big radio tune.

I like the idea of not opening with the big hit single. I'd love to see them do something like Springsteen, where the first song is one from the back catalogues, something that's beloved and maybe rarely-heard, and then crack into the big single.

Then again, U2 seems to cater more to the casual fan than Springsteen, so I really doubt they'd do it. But still ... a gal can dream of them opening with Streets again, right?

I'd be disappointed if they opened with Streets. You can't have the highlight of the show be the first number! Then it's all downhill from there!

Of course "downhill" is never really "downhill" with our boys, but I think Streets is sort of a showstopper. It needs to be later in the set.

Yeah, i wont predict a full set, but I do think we'll see more of TUF songs this time.

Also, from the beach clip, i think Unknown Caller would be a tops opener

Actually, I love the fact that they always use a new song to open the shows of the new tour. I would be disappointed if they don't do that. It'll sound like they're are just doing a Stones-style tour and not a "new tour of the new album"

If U2 did the Springsteen fan... how about "Rejoice"... or a slow "October" opening... Start with that then as Bono's singing "Go On...." Adam rips into "New Year's Day"
