I don't see ISHFWILF Being used regularly on this US leg,I reckon AIWIY is going to be the regular slot as they haven't played AIWIY in the US continually for a long time since elevation. Still haven't found was always played on the second leg in 09 so I can see this as a logical change,and for the better! I think we will see pride a bit more too!

I think they have definately improved the setlist from where it was in 2010. Other than the new songs which began to vanish quickly, the 2010 setlists were less than spectacular for me.

They have a good opening song now, Zooropa, HMTMKMKM, and All I Want Is You. All massive improvements IMO. They could still ditch Miss Sarajevo and it would help and I'm probably in the minority but Magnificent live is anything but. The best part of it live was the intro and now thats even gone. Otherwise the setlist looks pretty good to me. Sure it would be cool to see them mix it up more, but as we all have discussed ad nauseum, its not going to happen with U2.

If they put NLOTH over Magnificent, and put Discotheque in instead of its snippet, that would pretty much rule for me.

I still say swap out Miss Sarajevo for either Running To Stand Still or Kite.

And swap Walk On with Breathe.

But at this point, they seem pretty set in their ways in regards to the setlist. Overall, I'm fine with it. It's a great setlist. The two or three songs I can bitch about are heavily outnumbered by much better songs. As long as I'm at the show, I don't care.

I would even just take NLOTH over Magnificent. That would be magnificent!

I'm sure a lot of us diehards would like to take out some of the warhorses. But they really need to be there for a stadium crowd. At least they are throwing us a bone (for the moment) with Zooropa. I hope that is a staple for this leg.

nice pun! I would like them to rotate NLOTH with Breathe, but I think a lot of people here wouldn't appreciate that.

I don't mind any of the warhorses, they're just part of the setlist and will always be, so I don't see the point in wanting them out. The only two songs I had a major hatefest with are gone, and with them the ATYCLB overload, so I'm pretty damn happy with the setlists now. ANd then Zooropa and EBTTRT happened. :fuckyeah:
