I get not wanting to see it again, but the idea that any portion of it wasn't terrific is not something that was widely thought at the time.

May be not terrific.... but it was still bloody good. And it is better than anything Ed Sheeran can ever produce.

Well I'd disagree as I think it's key to the theme of the story...

Alas, yes, Song for Someone was the only one people complained about because people like to complain about the song in general..

There wasn't this outpour of dislike for the way Sunday was played like we're seeing here.

Right at the end of that video of the tour book, you can clearly see a shot from the video used for Streets during JT30

Amen.

Go ahead and repeat 2015 Sunday Bloody Sunday, just eliminate the bore that is SFS from the set, and for the love of God don't double down and play 13 as well. One of the two will suck the life out of the room, both is a mind numbingly bad idea.

i dunno, it could work, like a recurring motif, bringing things full circle at the end - they're allowed!

They should move Wild Horses to the encore... Give it a little more life.

I'll give 13 a shot (crazy thought, maybe see if it sucks before bashing it!), but I don't like this ending on a sad depressing song thing. Leave on a high

Because it was a bore live, thematic link or not.
