Back in '94, Pink Floyd performed Dark Side of the Moon in it entirety. I never heard of one single person clamoring for them to mix up the track listing. Naturally, the title of this thread should be "This is not what I wanted".

You had me till Exit, talk about a horrible way to open a show. That setlist doesn't have much of an arc, and you seem a little stuck in the this song has to be here because that's how they've been doing it.

You still think a tour with a whole b-side is being played, a new song, and passenger song is JUST about the classics? That's not the premise.

Pretty much the ONLY thing I agree with you on so far is that IWF would be a good opener.
Sorry, Exit was meant to be parenthesized over the loudspeaker. Trip Through The Wire would be a great opener.

Although not popular, I still consider the B-side to be classics, it's a loose term. I don't think this tour should just about the popular songs, but it's about mixing it up. I disagree about the arc, but hey we'll agree to disagree.

You forgot 'how', like how acronyms work, normally you would write WOS or W of S.

But yes, I agree it would be a nice piece to rotate in, along with LT.

There are uptempo, fast, dramatic songs and those are crucial. Then there are sort of more medium-tempo songs and no matter how great they are, sometimes you just can't find a place for them."

The point I originally made, and still stick by, is that SBS is a horrible choice to start with, Streets shouldn't be shoved to the 4th song, and putting WOWY in the middle just doesn't make sense. The JT tour is really about celebrating the classics and therefore, they should have had a much stronger way of starting and ending the show without boring the audience. Sure, the whole "playing an album straight' is a cool concept, but in reality it just doesn't work. NOW that we have enough footage of different concerts, I can confidently say they don't look old or bored, but they look like they're trying to make this concept work and failing miserably at it.

Think I'm wrong? Using their setlist (with the exception of their concert killer Miss S.) , this makes more sense when considering the "tempo" of the concert:

1. I Will Follow
2. Exit
3. Trip Through Wires
4. Elevation
5. Beautiful Day
6. New Years Day
7. SBS
8. Still Haven't Found
9. Red Hill
10. God's Country
11. One Tree Hill
12. Bad
13. Bullet
14. Running
15. Streets
16. Pride
17. With Or Without You
---
18. Ultra Violet
19. One
20. Mothers of The Disappeared
21. 40

Here you have a mixup of everything, with the right tempo and you don't slow you concert down with an entire slew of B-tracks in the middle/end of the set.

I've previously made all of these points, so I really don't understand how I went in with the wrong premise.



21 is enough songs. If missing 3-4 songs helps Bono's voice for future touring, then so be it I have 0 problem with that. I mean look at Axl Rose and Paul Stanley now, we should only be so lucky Bono looks and sounds as good as he does....


Meh. The appeal of this tour is The Joshua Tree played in full, in album order. That set list just looks like a random generated set list show. I'm not on board.

How did the band not pick up on this?

They stopped the show mid-note. Bono gave a lecture about the importance of trash collection.

If you don't like the setlist, you have two choices.

1. It's easy to whine when you're seeing it appear in text on a computer screen
2. You aren't obliged to attend every show on the tour

But if they only walked out to Exit and ignored one of the strongest moments of this tour, opened with the weakest song on JT, and then put the rest in their normal places; this tour would rock! That's how you celebrate an album apparently
