Your ideal JT30 setlist

We've already got a speculation and discussion thread. But that's for staying within the bounds of reality. Here, post what you'd love the band to do but know they won't consider. Like sets containing the back-to-front idea.

I'd love this and think it would work very well:

1. Out of Control
2. I Will Follow
-- Bono greets the crowd, says they're going to play some tunes from before the Joshua Tree as part of the journey there --
3. Sunday Bloody Sunday
4. The Electric Co.
5. Gloria
6. Pride
7. A Sort of Homecoming
8. New Year's Day
-- Bono gives a speech about JT, that "we've got one song to go and then we'll get into it, but we're doing it with a twist, you'll see..." --
9. Bad
10. Mothers of the Disappeared
11. Exit
-- talk about JT and what it means to them, especially the next song --
12. One Tree Hill
13. Trip Through Your Wires
14. In God's Country
-- more talk about JT, "playing some special songs for you" --
15. Red Hill Mining Town
16. Running to Stand Still
17. Bullet the Blue Sky
18. With or Without You
-- thanks and final remarks--
19. I Still Haven't Found
20. Where the Streets Have No Name

21. The Fly
22. Mysterious Ways
-- "it's the twentieth for another album!" --
23. Staring at the Sun
-- "we're now looking to the future, see you soon" --
24. SOE lead single

-- pretend to be humbled in coming back for a second encore --
25. Beautiful Day
26. Spanish Eyes
27. 40

Eh, I was going for a "realistic" unrealistic set there, with SATS a sly nod to U2 moderately fucking up any Pop representation - since I think them doing even one song from Pop is unrealistic in the first place. That's why I said it would work very well; it's paced to appeal to a stadium crowd (I wouldn't have otherwise put in Pride or BD) but has enough great deep cuts and twists that U2 would never actually be bold enough to do it.

A ludicrous first encore would be:

Gone
Until the End of the World
Last Night on Earth
The Fly

so we're talking ideal setlists, but without the constraints of realism? got it.

1-5: rotating setlist, different songs every night
6-16: The Joshua Tree
17-21: rotating setlist, different songs every night
--encore break---
22-27: rotating setlist, different songs every night.

Pearl Jam is playing The Joshua Tree on tour this year? Cool.
And you're 8-10 songs short on your set list length.

Awesome work as always, Ax!

If they get a bit bold, that isn't too far off.

If nothing else, I'd love to see the early /mid 1980s idea to start off remain in tact for these shows!

I know some people here want the band to play nothing post-JT era (so including R&H) across the entire show, not just in the opening songs. I'm certain the band would never contemplate it.

But this, this would be my fucking dream if the option were on the table:

1. 11 O'clock Tick Tock
2. Desire with shredding solo
3. All Along the Watchtower
4. The Electric Co.
5. Rejoice
6. Gloria
7. Twilight
8. A Sort of Homecoming
9. Mothers of the Disappeared
10. Exit
11. One Tree Hill
12. Trip Through Your Wires
13. In God's Country
14. Red Hill Mining Town
15. Running to Stand Still
16. Bullet the Blue Sky
17. With or Without You
18. I Still Haven't Found
19. Where the Streets Have No Name

20. Wire
21. Spanish Eyes
22. Pride
23. Heartland
24. All I Want Is You
25. Bad
26. 40
