Man, could you imagine the possibilities? Imagine having no clue what could possibly be coming next? I watched a video of the Chilean Tribute Band Lemon (even better than the real thing?) and they play "Some Days..." and that segued seamlessly into "DYFL". Imagine if U2 had the balls (or the musical prowess) to pull that off?

I've spent many a night working with a U2 tribute band... the different segues that take place and work (and sometimes don't) can be amazing. I pretty much expect NYD into Bullet to be something that U2 have done, but I don't think they ever have... it's just from watching UF do it a million times.



I took a die-hard U2 fan to see Pearl Jam a few years back. He had never seen them before.

I tried explaining what some of the equivalent songs for U2 would be... Like when they broke out Breath six songs in... "this would be like it U2 randomly broke out "11 O Clock Tick Tock"

And when they did Black Red Yellow... "ummmm, this would be like if U3 randomly broke out A Celebration"

And then they played Sweet Lou... "uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, this would be like if U2 played J Swallow, but Adam sang vocals"

Eventually I gave up trying to explain things.

I'd be very surprised.

U2 knows the songs people come to hear, and I'm certain they don't want people to leave disappointed. Everyone here may have heard Streets more times in concert than they care to, but at every show there are a LOT of people who have never seen U2 before, and may never see them again, who will be gutted if they don't play it. U2 knows that. Even if it was just for a couple of shows for an experiment, that's still a lot of disappointed fans. And while it's not my favourite U2 song, there's not a single song they do that can take the place as Streets, and I would not substitute it for anything. Not Acrobat, not ASOH, not Mercy. It has a unique place in the setlist and can't be replaced.

There was a time of course U2 could get away with not playing that song, but now I firmly believe U2 will never play another regular tour, full set concert without Streets.

I forgot that you were involved with that band! Man, I'll bet that's a lot of fun! I have been in a band for years and I can never get the guys to do many U2 songs, mostly because nobody can sing like Bono! We have done Vertigo, Elevation and SBS somewhat passably, Beautiful Day didn't sound very good. We tried NYD at one NYE gig, and our keyboard player was playing in the wrong key and didn't realize it!! That was awful! A U2 cover band would be my dream, but I could never afford the equipment to make Edge-like sounds!

Pearl Jam is on my bucket list. I don't know why I've never seen them before, but I will rectify that if they ever come back to Ohio! I really respect what those guys do!

Since the new tour is finally announced, thought I'd bump this thread.

After some thought . . i'm going with 8 songs off the new album, 2 off of I& E, 4 off of AB, 1 from POP (!), 2 from ATYCLB, 1 from Boy and/or 1 from War.

I doubt SOI won't be represented, not when it's the companion of the album they're promoting.

I'd bet on at least a couple of SOI songs a night.

U2 were a great live band before 1987....,and they was no streets.

I'm pretty sure thats the thinking as to why they could tour without playing it.

A tour called Experience + innocence, yeah it makes sense to completely ignore the album.

Oops . . forgot to mention JT . . . well, Streets of course. Maybe WOWY.

And that was supposed to be "2 off of SOI"

If we're doing guesses for all albums, I suppose the average night could be something like:

1 from Boy or October
1 from War
1 from UF
2 from JT
1 from RAH
4 from Achtung
1 from the rest of the nineties
2 from ATYCLB
1 from HTDAAB
0 from NLOTH
2 from SOI
7 from SOE
Total: 23

Some of those would be rotational.

I think Streets and Bullet at all shows. WOWY at most but not all. Still Haven't Found / Exit (the Shadow Man seems like it's a thing now, so maybe it'll stick around) are also possibilities. I could see them benching everything else, including Still Haven't Found and Exit.
