The awesomeness of Unknown Caller

I really hope they play this live. Alas, I fear they'll do something like SUC instead.

Unknown Caller is just such a great song!!

I still say UC is the best thing they've done since The Fly! Honestly- the main thing and almost the only thing I'm looking forward to on U2360 is hearing that song live! I really hope they will... but I have a feeling something like SUC or Crazy Tonight will be played.

I really wish most of all that Vertigo would be dropped... seeing as It is virtually the same song as 'Boots to me- But of course they will play it. Casual fans have to say "Hey they're playing that ipod commercial! OMG!"

Of course they will play Crazy, it's their next single.

But I don't understand this "I hope they will play _____ but I have a feeling that SUC will be played" that doesn't make any sense to me, why can't they play both?

It would be such a waste if they didn't play UC, the solo was tailor made for live performances. And yes, it is a brilliant song and my favourite on NLOTH definitely.

Although I have a gut feeling it might not be played.

I hope they do, the solo would be so

But who will be all the voices in the chorus?

And who will play the organ?

And how will they get these birds to sing on stage?

Difficult song to play live.

It is maybe the best on the album, even better than magnificent, NLOTH, MOS and Crazy and Breathe ... all those songs are great but if I have to make a choice ...

Same with stuck in a moment .... live ....
organ is a backingtrack i assume?
the intro at until the end of the world is also a recording. It must be possible.

I hope! I want to hear that solo

Oh, I hope they play Crazy Tonight also, it's really grown on me

NLOTH (given)
Magnificent
MOS
UC
Breathe

There's 5 there already, with Unknown Caller included. Yet I've missed GOYB and SUC, which I think they want to play. Also, they'll probably try to pull a WAS or COL on us. All of which doesn't look good for UC chances.

We see the return of Adam and Larry on vocals. Them + Edge = chorus easily. Backing track +/or Lawless for the other parts. I don't see it as a hard song to do live really...no harder than COBL or Streets. There were alot of equally if not more complex songs off the last album, really.

because that means one chance less of a long lost gem being played.
something like that?

I think some of you are following the "5 song" parameter a little too close...

This is U2, we all know they speak a different language than us.

Granted, no one knows for sure. However, if I had to take a guess at the statistical probability of 5 songs vs 6 or more, I think 5 would be the safest bet.

Having said that, being wrong would also be great!

Well, I'm guessing Edge wouldn't want to miss the chance of playing that solo live...and they said UC is everyone's favourite or second favourite off the album.

something just tells me that they're going to play Fez. i think they're just that proud of it, considering it almost opened the album.

they only way I can see Fez being played would be as incidental music at the beginning or before an encore...

I've been thinking a lot about the encore lately - I'm wondering if they are going to go back to the over the top/PopMart style?
