What songs should U2 drop and add??

Since U2 has a ton of songs to choose from, what songs do you think they should drop and add for the upcoming tour? (Aside from tracks from the new cd)

My selections to remove are:

-Bullet the Blue Sky (Overplayed, almost at every single show since it was introduced!!)
-Pride (Same as BTBS)
-Vertigo or Elevation (One or the other, Get On Your Boots can fill the void...even though both are great live rockin' tunes!)
-One or WOWOY (Again, one or the other...there's just too much to choose from and I think at least one of these should go to make room for something else as they are both loosing their relavance!!)

Additions:

-Acrobat (Never really played live, would fit in well with NLOTH...the actual song...and such an awesome song!)
-Lemon (Would love to see this one back...for some reason parts of Fez-Being Born remind me of this song and again I can see it fitting in with NLOTH
-Exit (This would fit in great around "Breathe" and was always a great live rocker....would fill the void of BTBS being removed!)

Wow I could go on and on with this actually...I guess there are just too many to choose from, but It'd be cool to read others opinions!

They should play Lemon twenty-five times at each concert and then go home.

They will never, ever drop Pride imo, that would be like dropping Streets...
A song I would love to see them play would be New York, when they play at Giants Stadium or whatever NYC venue they play this tour.

To me One and Streets are the only untouchables. Because I like it when bands make sure they play the hits you want to hear because it's always someone's first U2 show.

I can like without them since I've seen them, but in general, I think those 2.

But I think U2 thinks it's ONE, STREETS, PRIDE, BEAUTIFUL DAY, VERTIGO.

That's my guess for 5 songs they will play every night as they try to draw in new/old.

I would love them to add (among many others...)

ELECTRICAL STORM
WINDOW IN THE SKIES
LEMON
DESIRE
TWO HEARTS BEAT AS ONE
DISCOTHEQUE
HEARTLAND
ACROBAT (still never live right?)
WILD HORSES
UV LIGHT MY WAY
A SORT OF HOMECOMING

Drop Bullet for a tour.

Play Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride and New Years Day on occassion but not every single night. Maybe rotate the three of them for each show.

Songs I would add are God Part II or Hawkmoon 269. Those are my dream songs for them to do live. I full well rehearsed full band A Sort Of Homecoming would be good also.

I'll be pissed if I don't hear One. I can do without SBS, BTBS, Pride, NYD, and even Streets or WOWY, but I love One.

As far as additions, I think a couple songs from Pop might fit with this tour. Maybe Wild Horses, Spanish Eyes, HMTMKMKM too.

Wow, really? I thought it was one of the highlights of the Vertigo tour and it had not been done since 1987 prior to that. They dropped it from that tour already on the last leg. I doubt it will be played but I don't think it warrants dropping already.

I would say that, in terms of warhorses, Pride, Streets, One, Beautiful Day, Vertigo, and probably COBL are set in stone. The rest is somewhat fair game. Either SBS or NYD is likely, although I'm not sure either will be played too consistently. Bullet and WOWY I can really see them dropping, although I'm sure we will see at least some of the latter. UTEOTW will probably be played about as much as it was on the Vertigo Tour... it was really a highlight of ZooTV, PopMart, and Elevation, but still sounded great on Vertigo. Mysterious Ways will probably be an on-and-off thing, too. The Fly... God only knows.

What will be interesting is how many 90s songs they play that aren't One, The Fly, Mysterious Ways, or UTEOTW.

The untouchables to me are Streets, and WOWOY- everything else can be dropped at least some nights.

The one the NEED to be dropped are:
1. Bullet- boring for a while now. please let it rest.
2. NYD
3. Sunday Bloody Sunday at least rotate it.
4. Miss Sarajevo - snooze fest. hopefully it doesn't take up a spot again this tour.
5. Pride- probably will never happen. I enjoyed it on vertigo, but it needs to at least be rotated.
6. Elevation- should have never made past the first tour.

Please add:
1. I Threw A Brick-> A Day Without Me -let it take the spot of I will follow- maybe it can be the suprise that An Cat dubh-Into the Heart were on vertigo.
2. A Sort of Homecoming AND/OR Unforgettable Fire
3. Exit (could take Bullet's spot and would be so much better)
4. Last Night on Earth
5. Love Is Blindness (end the first encore with it).

Promenade would be my first choice, but it will never happen.
