Ideas/wishes about the (possible) next I&E tour

Hi,

I guess/hope there will be a new leg of the I+E tour after the release of SOE (if this happens).

How will this new I+E tour look like? Here's my guess:

* They still start the concert with the Innocence-part as we know it, only with a few changes: (a) 1 other old song at the start, (b) 1 SOI song less, and (c) another song ending the set, so no UTEOTW
* They start the 2nd set with two songs of SOE instead of Invisible and EBTTRT (perhaps starting with The Morning after Innocence, depending on the mood of this song)
* The 2nd set will contain at least 5 songs of SOE, but no songs of SOI
* They will only change 2-3 'classic' songs compared to the 2nd set of the 2015 tour. Maybe these songs are a little bit more focused on the Experience-theme, something that was missing on the 2015 tour.
* They will end the concert with a SOE-song.

In keeping with the experience theme, they'll start the concert with 'Slug'.

-Very few SOI, HTDAAB and ATYCLB songs
-Remember that 1980-1986 and 1992-1999 exist
-If SOE doesn't come out in time, try out a couple new ones

- Keep uteotw it's too good not to play.

- I imagine we'll have about 3 SOI songs

- Everything hinges on the new material as far as show format goes

- Ditch Invisible. It was underwhelming to me live.

Ditch Elevation for fucks sake. Discotheque would be huge in the same slot and a lot more fun.

And add a few treasures to the setlist like we had with 360 - UF and Ultraviolet were big highlights for me. I thought the I&E shows were lacking those. (October and Zooropa are just too short for my appetite). Yes we had Out of Control and Bad but I heard those live on the JT tour and a few other tours. They need to dig deep for some treasures.

and play 2-3 more new songs vs. the warhorses. I&E shows towards the end felt like a greatest hits show to me.

And improve the fucking encore. I like COBL and BD just fine, but that encore just felt limp most nights without Bad.

Another suggestion: sing One from now on instead of having the crowd do it. Or, failing that, put up the lyrics so we're all on the same page.

They will play, more or less, the same setlist at the first show as they do at the last show.

The only change in the setlist will probably be SOI songs be replaced with SOE songs, which is cool. The most exciting thing about seeing U2 live these days is seeing them perform the NEW songs.

Play a Motorhead song in tribute to Lemmy during the B-Stage set. Make Adam play a Rickenbacker bass, sing into a mic perched above his head and give Larry a double bass drum kit.

That any second leg in 2017 features proper fucking respect shown to 'Pop' on it's gloriously camp 20th anniversary.

11 Wolves
12 UTEOW
13 -Zooropa segue to end 1st set

13 Zooropa full to open 2nd set.
14 Achtung/Zooropa/Pop song
15 Achtung/Zooropa/Pop song
16 SOE

Please don't:

Open with The Miracle
Play Still haven't found as a closer
Play City of Blinding Lights again

Please consider:

Open with a much better song taken from SOE
Remember that the album POP is part of your back catalogue
Give as much love to detail to the live presentation of SOE songs as you did with SOI songs

If they had released both albums in 2014 and then 2015 and started the tour like this, that would have been a good idea.

That did not happen though and Songs Of Innocence has received 76 shows as the focus. Its now time that the focus shift to Songs Of Experience.
