Opening Night Setlist

1. Vertigo
2. All Because of You
3. Miracle Drug
4. I Will Follow / Out of Control
5. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
6. Gone / Until the End of the World
7. Love Peace Or Else
8. Running To Stand Still
9. Exit ( I they bring this song back)
10. Electrical Storn
11. A Man And A Woman
12. Fast Cars / Stay / Please / Ground Beneath Her Feat (acousitc rotation )
13. All I Want Is You (one of my favorite songs ever)
14. Bad --> Original of the Species (Snippet)
15. Where The Streets Have No Name
16. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
17. Beautiful Day
18. City of Blinding Lights
19. Mysterious Ways
20. With Or Without You (I sure hope they play this song)
21. Crumbs From Your Table
22. One
23. Yahweh --> "40" (that would be a sweet transition)

Now, that's 9 new songs and I've heard one of the band members say that they will play around 9 new songs each night. Notable songs left off: Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Years Day etc. I really don't care for those songs. Also, that's a good mix of old and new stuff even there's only one song from AYCLB. I hope they play Kite because that's my favorite song on the album. So what do you think? Do you think it's a good list? Any thoughts....especially Axver...

Because people are asking for my thoughts, I guess I'll provide comments, even though I haven't been commenting on proposed setlists much lately.

I'm not sure about the position of SYCMIOYO, wedged between two rocking songs. I'd probably have it come straight after Miracle Drug.

Loving LAPOE --> RTSS --> Exit. In my own attempts to form what I consider to be a reasonable set, I've been using Exit --> LAPOE --> RTSS a bit.

Glad to see Electrical Storm included. Too many people overlook that one.

I don't think the band would play both AIWIY and Bad on the same night, though I'd love it if they did. Also, I am pretty confident OOTS will receive more than just the snippet treatment, as the band have already done it in full on the promo tour.

I'd swap around Beautiful Day and Pride and have Pride close the main set. I'm hoping the band move away from that, though. Pride has been a very typical main set closer since the days of UF! The only tour when it didn't close the main set was Popmart. On the rest, it was used with at least some regularity.

Not sure where your main set/encore or main set/encore 1/encore 2 split is.

Nice to see my One/Yahweh/40 encore.

I've no disagreement with the low number of ATYCLB songs. The only songs off ATYCLB that I think are reasonable possibilities this tour are Beautiful Day, Stuck, and Kite. And even if the band don't start off playing Sunday Bloody Sunday and New Year's Day, you can just about guarantee one of them will come back into rotation at some point.

Zoopop, I thought of Twilight as a good oldie to come in that first three songs, but I doubt it will happen.

I'm betting we hear a rotation of Out of Control and I Will Follow in the No. 3 spot.

Macfistowannabe, your list is VERY close to the one I've been scheming on. I think that, give or take a couple of songs, this is very reasonable. I agree with Axver that Original will be played completely, even if it's just a stripped down version.

I'm holding out hope/expectation that Beautiful Day will be a main-set closer.

My other absurd conceit is that Bono does an a capella snippet from "Tomorrow" following "Sometimes."

My expectation is that the main set will close with either:

- Streets
- Beautiful Day

Or:

- Streets
- Crumbs From Your Table

Personally, I have been tending to use the latter and placing Beautiful Day as the encore opener. I would not be surprised if they did use the former, though - it happened once on Elevation!
