We got to hear a smidge of Radiohead's Burn The Witch before they decided everyone was finally in, and the Pogues song started.

Also heard Christine and the Queens (I think it's called Twisted), and a Van Morrison song, but I'm blanking on which one it was. It also played after house lights came up at the end.

Oh, and Prince Sign O' the Times, which was cool.

Always love the pre recorded music before a U2 show. Who do you think picks it? Think the band give input? I have a feeling they might.

I assume you mean, "All the Young Dudes"? And is it really Bowie's version or the Mott the Hoople version?

The Pogues song is the one they come out to?

That's a weird choice. Not exactly pumping the energy up.

Yes. At least for now! They changed the intro song on I&E after a few shows, so ... who knows.

i like rainy night in soho - but i agree, it's an odd choice. i wonder if there's a specific reason behind it... like dennis sheehan loved it or something like that. otherwise.. yea, i don't really get it.

Sign O' The Times would be a lot cooler of an intro song, and a nice hat-tip to Prince, even if it's a year late.

I'll make alist for the show tonight. Definitely another Prince tracks.

Some of the hipster/rap stuff blurs together on me but I'll write down a couple lyrics.

The Pogues were a supporting act on the original Joshua Tree tour, so that could be part of it.

I think rainy night is a great intro song. To me it's all about aging and living in the now, while in a relationship that has lasted decades. Kinda fits U2 don't you think? Also the Irish instrumental part as Larry walks on. Perfect
