(It ended up on Wide Awake in Europe too.. So the band was obviously in shape and satisfied with the results of that night)

All the other songs came across as pretty bland.


Still , I know as a hardcore fan I would appreciate them debuting new material. . But for a live setting.. It might be better not to do so.

Weirdly enough, I liked EBW debuted at 360 and additonally pumped when it was on SOI. im just saying they can road test couple fo songs time to time, not like they did in 360 Europe leg

I wouldn't mind Stories For Boys being rotated in during the early part of the show, and though it wouldn't interest a lot of people, personally, I'd like to hear the following sequence: Do You Feel Loved->If You Wear That Velvet Dress->The Crystal Ballroom->Your Blue Room->With or Without You->The Troubles. Generally the second half "experience" part of the show needs more work.

Going to London 6.

Could do without BD, COBL and One. Would love Discotheque, Bad, ASOH and a proper segue into Streets.

ASOH replacing EBTTRT.

Bullet into RTSS into Pride into WOWY to close main set.

Reach Around and California to appear SOMEWHERE

Stay somewhere

None of these are unreasonable hopes I think

That's a risky proposition, since One's live performances seem to have lost something vital since Popmart, but opening 2nd set with One inside the Berlin wall could have been pretty atmospheric. Those 'tired warhorses' just need some visual punch if the band is so inclined to keep them, and One could benefit from this, I think. Anyway I wouldn't want to see at as a closer - should either be 'cage' or e-stage in my opinion.

Plus I suppose Invisible would be cooler outside the 'cage' (though I haven't been to shows yet and I'd leave this judgement to those who have). Have it closing the main set or add to the encore. They could even segue into Streets if they wanted to.

And Twilight, please

Invisible inside the screen was incredible, and one of my favourite parts of the show, and the best use of the screen, imo. I hope you get a chance to see it.

Thank you!

Honestly for me suggestions are just and 'what if'. I can't help imagining things, but actually there's nothing I particularly don't like about the I+E show.
I'm sure I'd be thrilled with any gig they've done so far on this leg.

Replace Song For Someone with Reach Me.

California as a regular on the e-stage.

Throw in The Troubles, Sleep Like A Baby and Volcano (not all 3 together, of course) every 5th show or so.

Europe leg. What would YOU change?

It's not my favorite song, but I hope SFS makes it all the way through the tour. I don't really care what how great the new material is, I would still like to see the band stick to their new album material and go with it to the end.
The Miracle, Cedarwood Road, Wolves, and EBW are guarantees to make it all the way to the end of the tour. SFS and Iris will most likely make it all the way as well. Invisible is sort of a toss up, but i really hope they don't drop it. It's a great song, but they may try something different to open the 2nd set later in the tour.
I think The Troubles and TCB may become more regular on the European leg and Reach might get played. It wouldn't be much of a surprise if California is dead. I'm hoping Volcano finds a regular spot in the first set, it would fit much better. Sleep Like A Baby would be awesome, but I would be shocked if it gets played. But who knows, no one expected Lucifer's Hands.

You read my mind. But only every 5th show is not enough.

I'd bet my bottom dollar that Iris through Invisible stays exactly the same.

Yeah I'd love for these songs to be played every night, but we all know there's no chance in hell of 10 new songs being part of the permanent set.

I really love how well the new songs have gone over live. Which is why it's even more infuriating that Reach Me, California, Sleep Like A Baby, The Troubles and California have been played so rarely (if at all!).

- no speech before Streets

- fix the closer....I don't know what song though. The only one I can think of is 40. ISHWILF is a terrible closer and I don't like the new arrangement of One.

- make EBW full band

- sick of BD but I understand why they have to play it

I don't have any problems with the 1st set at all.
