I'll believe the augmented reality, longer sets, and rarities when I see and hear it.

The band will play with hologram versions of their younger selves from 1988.

They'll play Acrobat, but Edge will be on piano the whole time.

Not to mention many b-sides and non-album tracks, but it's quicker to list those ones that have been played.

Of the album songs, the only ones that seem realistic to me are Drowning Man, Acrobat, and Reach Around. They wouldn't be hard to play, and would be enjoyable even for audience members unfamiliar with them.

But then we do know that U2 have rehearsed Playboy Mansion and One Step Closer in recent years, so they're probably digging out 4th of July and EPAA.

All true.

From memory, the ditching of Playboy Mansion and OSC seemed to coincide with the ditching of the orchestra and the idea of two completely different nights in the original tour. Maybe they were part of the experience story they didn’t get to tell in 2015?

Possible, yeah. I actually didn't mind pairing Bullet with One Step Closer. Much better than that Hands shit anyway.
