Just compare SBS (tuned down full step and still struggling occasionally) from the ATYCLB tour to the Vertigo tour (tuned down half step and occasionally being too strong).

Frankly, I don't care.

I'm not talking about getting words right...

If Bono was using pitch correction, you'd assume that if anything he'd use it on the big notes in EBW, especially the last ones. Sometimes he hit the big note, sometimes he took it down an octave, sometimes he tried hitting the big note and he couldn't do it and his voice cracked.

So if he was using it... why wouldn't he use it in the most obvious place to use it?

You know it's the 25th Anniversary of ZooTV. You know what would be awesome. First half, old stuff into JT. Close that with 40. Go to black. Bono over the load speaker. "Time to dream it up all again".

Opening riff of ZooStation into a ZooTV set.

Won't happen but...

Interference ... where even The Joshua Tree Tour is about 90s U2

(I do fully expect them to play songs from 90's and 00's btw.)

i actually do expect them to play either The Fly or Zoo Station as the first post-Joshua Tree song... with a i/e style intermission/video thingy in between.

The JT/RH to AB/Zooropa/POP transition of U2 is the main reason why I consider them to be the greatest (or one of the greatest) rock bands in history. I would love to see that transition live.

The Fly could happen.
I expect that we will get staple U2 setlist fare as they are already playing side B of Joshua Tree.
So Even Better Than The Real Thing would perhaps be an even more likely candidate.
Or One, depending on what they are going for.

To me it would be bizarre to have any notion of "chopping down the Joshua Tree" as part of the concert. I would like to think it's an occasion to celebrate the album not to (again) tell the story of U2's transformation from 80s to 90s.
You never know with this band though.

My conservative predictions:

Act 1: String of 8-12 hits to warm up the crowd. Think of a setlist similar to Dreamforce or iHeartRadio

Act 2: Joshua Tree

Encore: Similar encore to the European i+e leg, close with 40.

I'd like to think we'll get SOE songs, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I also don't expect deep cuts outside of The Joshua Tree. We're already going to get revivals of songs that haven't been played in 30 years and the debut of 30 year-old song, so I'm not complaining.

I thought of Real Thing but it played a big part on the last two tours, so I think they'll drop it for this go around.

I initially was going to say that there would be no chopping of the Joshua Tree...

But I definitely think they could nod to it:

Set A: Pre-JT
Set B: JT
Encore
1. Zoo Station
2. Beautiful Day
3. Vertigo
4. One

Although now that I write it out, there's no way they'd do 7-8 songs of pre-JT material to open the show.

In fact, calling it now: Please into Streets

Keep reminding them! Some Discotheque would be nice.

I simply cannot see them starting with the full Joshua Tree, it will be in the middle of the summer, which means it won't be dark yet and opening with Streets in full daylight (or at least a bit light) will be a big waste. It will probably be the 2nd part of the show.

I have this unrealistic fantasy that they'll play all of JT, then after a break play Pop in its entirety. It'all be miraculous if we get a single song from Pop, though.

Copied from an old thread. I hatched a scheme where I copied every U2 track and pasted it into a random list generator. From there I took the first 25 tracks as the setlist. Enjoy the hilarity. Should still work.
