4 nights in Paris... surely SOMETHING different will happen?

Oh well, I’m sure everyone there tonight had a great time.

A second page is always better than one.

Cologne #2 Setlist Thread

I just really think this show would benefit from having WGRYWH at the beginning of the encore. They nailed it in Tulsa, not sure why it was dropped. That encore just BEGS to have something a little more upbeat than One to kick things off!

Also, I think they were wrong to drop RBW. That song into UTEOTW was an epic combination compared to what they do now. If they felt it was too many new songs, drop Iris instead... IMO, of course.

Also, I think a 2nd, shorter encore is needed. Just come out after “13” and do a quick old school rocker like OOC, Electric Co or Gloria, then end with something epic like Bad or 40.

Not really, this was the first U2 show I genuinely found boring. Looks like tonight was even the worst of the tour songlist wise. I even came into this tour not looking at any setlist whatsoever (I wanted to try something new) for the first time ever, I only saw that facebook clip of them rehearsing WGRYRH so I expected at least some fireworks. I was so excited, Little did I know they ditched it after one time, making the encore a snoozefest. Like someone above said, the encore _needs_ it. Rest felt like a rehash of the first I/E tour, but that at least had the exitement of Bad vs One in the encore, so going 2 days felt like it mattered.

Cedarwood-Iris-Sunday felt like watching a replay of the tour a few years ago, even the same graphics on screen, even with ommitting the entire Joshua Tree they couldn't find some spots for something 'rare' or unique other than Acrobat, and Acrobat cannot carry or make/brake an entire show the way Bad or 40 could.

Discoball coming down? Surely something like Discotheque right? Nope, again the remix of EBTTRT....I mean come on.

Hope something will happen in Amsterdam, I go there twice in a month, but looking back at the other setlists now, my god. Always feels strange to complain about my favourite live band but this show did absolutely nothing for me tonight.

Well at least he didn't have many long and drawn-out speeches about africa or refugees this time, that was the only positive.

I agree that Discotheque should replace EBTTRT. I think U2 lean on AB too much.

Same here! Hopefully it’s somewhere I can make a mini vacation out of... no offense, but Tulsa is not it.

I’m seeing them next month in London but gone are the days I would aim for 2-3 shows just to see some rotation

The lack of comment here says it all , this has evolved into one of their laziest tour ever. Gone is the spirit that made the late 80’s / early 90’s going to a u2 gig special . I usually be buzzing about next month but this time feels like I going to mass on a Sunday .

Cologne #2 Setlist Thread

I think also as I get older I’m just less mesmerized by things like music and concerts. I remember during Elevation and Popmart concerts I was completely awestruck. Ever since the 360 tour, I find myself just feeling like I’m watching a friend’s band play or something. I still really enjoy U2’s music and concerts, but I just am not capable of reproducing that feeling that I had as a teenager. I am this way with other bands as well.

I actually briefly “met” Adam Clayton after the 2011 East Lansing show. His car was sitting in traffic, and he had his window down as I walked by. The whole thing happened really quick. I just kinda waved and said “hey Adam! Great show!” He kindly smiled and nodded at me, and I kept walking to my car. Myself in my teens - early 20’s would’ve been all “WE’RE NOT WORTHY!!!”
