Took it as sarcasm. To answer seriously, yes. If the audience doesn't immediately get into it, then it sets a low precedence of energy for the rest of the night for both the fans and band- and that's what it seemed like from the various amounts of footage I've seen.

Karma as in the fact that there's been a ton of scrutiny by fans for the band overplaying SBS, yet thats how they're now opening their shows.

I guess you're watching different footage than I am, I haven't seen a low energy show, especially for an opening night.

Like axver said, SBS is a live favorite.

There's something fundamentally wrong with a concert's production when you have subdued fans in the beginning of any concert.

SBS is fucking leagues ahead of the damp squib that was Breathe opening 360.

This is NOT what we wanted

I'm just glad I'm going to finally get to see NYD. I've been to four U2 shows across three tours and have missed it every time. The first time they skipped over it for Gloria though, which I consider a big net positive.

The Refugee belongs in the setlist. I Threw A Brick Through a Window would be a great rarity to switch in. There's a lot of thematic relevance in the songs they're NOT playing, especially in the encore.

I just wanted to say that the notion that anyone would be bored by Exit strikes me as crazy. It's one of the most incredible all out rock songs they've ever done.

Agree to disagree. Regardless if you think its a good song or not, it had the type of energy that opening songs should feel like.

I know most are glad IWF is taking a break, but I thought it would have been a good opener for this type of show.
I agree, I would have loved to see IWF open the shows

So what's the suggestion? You have to keep a pre-Joshua Tree track as the opener to fit the theme of the night (Pre JT > JT > Post JT)

Personal vote would be Out of Control.

The Ocean/11 O'Clock or Out Of Control with the current set up

They fit the sets timeline and at least with OOC Adam could walk on and strum that bass intro for a while, would make a change from Bono or Larry

Clannad intro into The Ocean, a mixture of nods to the past

Overall I would like to see something a bit different, the gig intros have been pretty low key since Pop (COBL excepted, but that was few and far between outside of NA)

I want a bit of epicness in my intros so personally I would go for using that screen from the get go, a chronological picture montage set to Boomerang I and then from the main stage into Gloria/NYD/SBS/IWF. Any would work. Then go to B stage until JT segment.
