i kinda agree. the absence not over one show, but over four is telling. i don't like this, it's one of the best songs on no line, and it's even better live. for them to drop it, yet keep playing fucking shit like elevation and stuck in a moment disgusts me.

bring that shit back u2, it's one of your best songs in 12 years.

I am surprised they would continue to play Stuck and Elevation as they are songs that should be replaced. Wonder if Bad will show up again as well. College kids would love BAD Unkown Caller and anything but Elevation. Desire would work too....

I always thought UC live was far better than the album version, so I'm sad to see it be gone. Hope it comes back because it's a lot better than other songs on their setlist which are getting pretty dull like BD, Stuck, Elevation and WOWY.

with my post in mind, no point panicking yet. let's worry about this after another 3-4 shows.

with that said, i really don't know why they're wasting a setlist spot on elevation. a song that means nothing is still being played nine years later - pull the other one, boys.

2 shows in a row is no cause for panic. Im sure it isnt gone for good, maybe they needed to tweak some things, maybe Terry broke a finger, and couldnt play, who knows!!!

I would wait for it to be absent from the next one or two shows before being too concerned, but then, if that happens, EVERYONE START PANICKING!!!!

why are people surprised by this? Elevation is a crowd pleaser and Stuck is an easy acoustic number to rotate with Stay every other night...

As for UC - there is no reason to panic yet, wasn't it rotated out for a couple of European shows as well or did I imagine that?

If it is on it's way out though, count me among the disappointed, UC is one of the most interesting things they have done this decade and it's even better live if you ask me... what a waste

I really hope U2 doesn't drop UC. Such a great moment live especially that frigging solo. I played a recording in my car loud for my wife and she said she got chills listening to it. Again this a casual fan. Come on U2 bring it back

It was rotated out a few times for UTEOTW. However, I'd like to take a moment to say, UC - UTEOTW - UF would be a sweet ass combo... and yes, as cool as Elevation is for a crowd pleaser like WOWY (and we all know about that one), UTEOTW truly maximizes the Claw. And UC is just plain damned sweet.
