i love the way people still bitch about the vertigo tour even though its now over, and i also love how some people want the band to do the same things other bands do.....yes because that would be totally creative wouldnt it

i'm not bitching... i loved every show i went to on the vertigo tour and wish i could have seen more. and if it's the exact same thing next time, i will go, and i will love every second of it.

but the question is what would you like them to do on the next tour, so answers were given.

No one is bitching. They're just giving their opinions on what they'd like to see next time.



- Keep the GA, but no lottery. First come, first serve.
- Break out some more oldies (which they did do for Vertigo, lest some people forget)
- Retire Pride, Bullet already

I too would like to see the GA go back to the first come, first served basis but I have a feeling random draws will continue

I would also agree that they should get over themselves and do a stadium tour in North America again.

Instead of talking about Africa and the ONE campaign next tour, use visuals instead to explain the situation. While the band plays One, they could have screens show statistics and information about Africa, AIDS, and how to join the ONE campaign. That way, the public becomes informed about the situation without being bored by a 10-minute speech from Bono.

Well, after seeing what the band can do about bringing back some real long forgotten gems (and making them sound even better! yes, Electric Co. and One Tree Hill to name a few!), I think the band should always keep this in mind for all of their future tours.

Exit, Wire, The Unforgettable Fire and Two Hearts. And what is left from Boy? It has to be A Day Without Me. I'd love to see/hear a few of these next time.

They must have absolutely different stage, and no big back screens like on their last tours,

POP encore with Gone and LNOE
Play more songs from new album(7 or 8), not like on vertigo tour

They did that for most of the tour. It was only really the fifth leg that had less.

Actually, if they would put some effort into Bullet, it wouldn't be that bad. The Vertigo version of Bullet plain sucked. I was watching the Zoo TV version the other night, and that is such a bad ass version. Real effort was put into it.

WOWY also doesn't have to lull. Play it like they played it on Rattle and Hum or don't play it at all. Actually, I saw them on 5/7 in Chicago, they didn't play WOWY, and I didn't even notice it was gone. The rest of the crowd seemed pretty satisfied with the whole show as well, except An Cat Dubh was kind of a dud.

They should also rearrange some of their classic hits that have been getting a little stale like One and With or Without You. They've sounded pretty similar the last two tours. Some good examples of rearranged or tweaked versions are One from the Miss Sarajevo single with the orchestra and With or Without You from the early Popmart rehearsals. Just make the songs interesting. Note to the band: Acoustic is NOT interesting.

1. No screens
2. No catwalks
3. Indoor arenas only

Bring the focus back on the music and performance.
