Which SOE songs do you think will not make the setlist?

It's tough because I want to hear everyone live over and over again... but we are following a band w a catalog of greatness too big, my guesses:

Red Flag Day
Landlady
Summer of love

What are your thoughts?

I reckon it's a safe bet Love Is All We Have Left won't be played. Though that would be notable in itself, because usually the first song on an album gets played frequently - and, in many cases, is one of the most-played songs from the album (IWF, Gloria, SBS, Streets, Discotheque, Beautiful Day, Vertigo, and The Miracle are all either the most-played song from their album, or not far off).

I also don't expect 13.

The rest are good chances. The fact it's an arena tour makes me believe that even those that aren't in the regular setlist will get the occasional outing. The band always work through more songs from an album on an arena leg than when in stadiums.

1 and 13 aren't true songs, more like bookends to the real album. Lights of Home is the first song to me and it makes a lot more sense. And Love Is Bigger is perfect last song.

Love is All We Have Left
Landlady
13

Everything else has a good chance of showing up.

Didn't they play Love is all we have left at the BBC? That could mean something.

I actually think love is bigger will get the cut. I think Bono will struggle to sing it live and they'll drop it.

American Soul

The same copycat noise of Volcano from SOI and Stand Up Comedy from NLOTH.

I know its direct connection with being appreciative of American support for U2, but it is just filler in the album, hard to bring up to that level.

What? American Soul is already a single and has been played live, so I'd say it's a lock to be played every night or thereabouts.

I don't think we'll see Landlady, Love is All We Have Left, or 13. I think we'll get snippets of the latter two though.

And I think we'll get Love is Bigger Than Anything In It's way, but with a little more mechanized help than usual.

I think they will play all the tracks - not every night obviously but i would expect to hear 9 of them every night and not sure they will play anything from Songs of Innocence on this tour and likely not much from Joshua Tree either.

I think that Love is All We Have Left will be sung acapella before Streets.

Volcano was played live during the Innocence promo tour
