So Dirty Day was actually rehearsed? That’s a song I always thought they should’ve played more than 10 times.

I’m so glad I got Red Flag Day instead of ABOY. That’s one of the few U2 songs I actually don’t really like.

I got ABOY at 5 of the 9 shows I saw on the N. American leg, Gloria three times, and Electric Co. once. And they weren't actually performing ABOY well until late in the leg.

ABOY is fine - serves its purpose in the set. I just wish RFD was a permanent fixture. It’s awesome, and always well received.

Yeah, it’s a little disappointing it’s taken a backseat after being so prominent early in this leg.

Landlady - a terrible idea for a song on paper, lovely in practice. Glad they played it!

I think now Bono will forever associate RFD as the song that broke his voice, and he’ll be afraid to sing it.

Can’t blame him.

Landlady was very cool, good slot too, I guess all we are technically missing live now is The Showman to make its appearance. Perhaps soon in prep for a later debut and I think Willie said Berlin will be recorded on 11/13 with totally different songs from the 2015 show that was recorded so we will have to compare/contrast that show with this show to see what else may be dropped.

If that’s literally the case they would need to replace 8 more songs, but I’m thinking Willie means SOE songs in place of SOI songs which they’ve already done, should be interesting.

Not sure why Little Things hasn’t made its tour debut yet. Pretty universally regarded as the best song on the album, no?

I think so too, probably figuring they covered it during the Joshua Tree Tour, but I think it would fit nicely into the current set.

I think that when they closed the JT shows with Little Things, their feelings got hurt when they saw droves of casual fans headed for the exits. So I think they lost their faith in the song of something.

They should’ve maybe opened the encore with it, then carried on with the hits parade of elevation, BD, Vertigo, MW, One, IWF, etc. Ending a concert meant to attract casual fans with an unreleased new song that’s a bit of a slow burner was not a good idea, hence the reason they stopped doing it. I was hoping to hear it at my show in Cleveland, but no dice.
