Firstly, do an only arenas tour. Strip it back. If U2 are still the best live band in the world, they dont need TV screen and catwalks. They made their reputation without any of that stuff! Maybe just some nice lights and effects, like REM and Radiohead these days.

In doing this and hopefully making the show less formulmatic, they could afford to mix up the setlists so more.

They could even mix the opening numbers around. Sometimes start with Streets, sometimes COBL, sometimes Vertigo, sometimes a new song or two.

If they have a pool of about 40-50 songs to work with, we'd get a nice mix and surely it would keep things interesting for the band. Its something they really havent done too much of and would be great for them and us!!

Songs to retire: Pride, Bullet
Songs to semi-retire (on rotation): WOWY, NYD, One

probably Chavez will give Bono 10000000000000000000 millions just to have a pic with him!

I think it is posible, but the idea of a Bono-Chavez meeting makes me sick

I'd pay money for them to put Bullet away, and, Pride, too, for that matter. Though, I understand why they play them, and do not get upset when I hear them, but, yeah, if it were up to me, say goodbye to both....and, as Axver said....

The Electric Co. Let them play that song until I get sick of it (never).

And, yeah, in general, would love to see a wider variety of songs being played on a rotating basis, but, I'll never hold my breath for that one.

Why does Philly only get one show? That is wrong!!!! It got two on each of the American legs last tour.

Well, for stadium I guess that'd be ok (didn't realize we weren't talking about the United Center)

1. Full band Walk on closing the main set.
2. Never ever retire Beautiful Day.
3. Bullet should be more powerful like the earlier performances...
4. 1 long stadium/arena leg each for Europe and NA. A longer leg for other countries and for heavens sake include new places on the itenerary - Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, India, Eastern Europe......
5. Exit
6. Keep with or without you... i was at 5 Aussie shows last month and i thought it was a highlight each night.

1. Do a retro tour - have only artists older than 40 open for them (Sting, Bruce, Petty, Elvis, PJ, REM... - old guys rule!).
2. Slogan: The New U2 - Less Talk, More Rock
3. More mix in setlists, maybe in encores - do poll on u2.com for input from fans.
4. Many more contests and give-aways on u2.com during tour.
5. Offer a CD off soundboard and/or DVD of each concert ala PJ bootlegs on their fan site.
6. Do something about GA so more people can experience it without all the line drama. Someone on here suggested that the ticket be printed with an album name and number. Fans would get there before the concert to get in groups by album and lined up by their ticket number. The albums would be randomly selected to see which group is 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc to be let in. This would prevent the need to camp out and should also discourage scalping since you would not know ahead of time if you would be up front. [OR some system along these lines]
7. Bring back the Dalton Brothers for a few shows!
