European Set Changes

With the American leg ending tonight and the European leg starting at the end of August will it be an exact copy of the show now or will it change?

I’m going for everything will stay apart from American soul and get out of your own way. They will both be dropped for summer of love and red flag day. Everything else will be exactly the same

That’s my guess anyway

All Because of You replaced by Crumbs From Your Table

American Soul replaced by Every Breaking Wave

That's it

SOL and RFD are very topical for Europe. Possibly in place of the Pride > GOOYOW > AS run which was very American specific

Setlist watchers will have fun with the EU leg because unlike the current one it has a few 4 night runs (Paris, Milan and Dublin) where they will open up their extensive back catalogue and delve...

.....nah... in reality that's ABOY, Gloria, ABOY, Gloria....

Yeah. Close the thread.

Red Flag Day and Summer Of Love come after Acrobat, with SATS being retired. Rest of the set is exactly the same, with the possible exception of Wild Horses rejoining the encore at some shows

I think the set should be shortened.

I understand why people think they wouldn't play American Soul in Europe.

But... come on people.

They'll get rid of the giant flag, but they're not dropping a single.

Right.

I think the imagery on the screen changes during certain songs, and of course Stars & Stripes goes away, but the setlist stays basically the same.

Bono: We spent alot of time in the US, were fans of the people and the idea. America is an idea. We can learn alot from them as they can learn alot from us. Especially those in charge (CHEERS!!!). Were all American Soul!! (Intro begins).

I expect this to be like ie where the top two thirds go untouched.

I only see two changes happening, all in recentering the political part of the show towards Europe. I think the order gets reshuffled depending on what replaces AS. If it’s a slower song maybe Pride closes things out, if not then COBL stays. I don’t think RFD will get refashioned as a political song because it really doesn’t work in that context. Much better up at the start of the show as a high energy rocker. Hope they bring it back there!

American Soul gets replaced by something. Depends on what political statement they want to make about Europe. Get Out stays in because it was the second single and isn’t as US focused as AS (although it has several America-centric lyrics). I’m confident AS goes because spending the political part of the show talking about the US seems dumb. Europe has plenty of problems.

Maybe SATS is replaced by something else since the Charlottesville imagery is so US centric. Summer of Love with refugee imagery. Or they keep SATS, which wouldn’t bug me because it’s a gorgeous song.

Since they kept Ultraviolet in the European leg of JT, I don’t think they’ll change the encore.

They're rewriting Exit as Brexit to replace American Soul; rest will remain in place.

Staring At The Sun stays, but they just use images of Syria instead.

I really don't know what they do with American Soul. It's a key part of the "show," like it or not. It also has more punch than Red Flag Day (even though Red Flag Day is a better song).

Go back to the original, superior Glastonbury. Giant patchwork of all the European flags comes up. Now is that a pocketful of sunshine or are you just happy to see me?
