Chicago itself, it got 8 songs off Bomb

They played it 10 from the album on the tour , including Crumbs and Fast Cars
To be fair it was rare when they played 8 bomb songs in a set, especially in the last 2 legs.

I wouldn't quite call eight rare, but yeah, the average was seven. The most HTDAAB songs in a show was nine; that happened a few times on the third leg.

The fifth leg was the only one to really seriously lack HTDAAB songs, and I think it should be better known as the U218 Tour By Stealth anyway.

Less stadiums and more arenas in Europe, Stadiums suck, too much people and stale sets.

I would love to see arena's in Europe instead of stadiums. Never going to happen though (unless they come back with a bunch of Westlife cover versions). More variety in set-lists would be nice, but again this comes back to arenas & stadiums. It simply isn't going to happen in a stadium setting - old and obsure songs will kill a stadium atmosphere stone dead.

Definitely keep the catwalks, IMO they are an essential part of any set-up now (not least as they give so many more people a chance to be close to the stage).

Stadium setups in Arenas and Arena Setups in Stadiums. All within the same tour.

No, it's not. Miracle Drug is part of the average of seven as it was played for most of the tour. It brought up nearly 100 performances. 7 was the average number of HTDAAB for the first leg when Miracle Drug didn't miss a show. 8 HTDAAB songs in total were played on that leg, but the eighth was OOTS and it wasn't played frequently - and when it was played, it sometimes took Yahweh's place.

Then on the European leg, Miracle Drug didn't miss a show and was part of the usual seven, or eight if you count Vertigo twice. Here's a standard set from that leg: http://www.u2-vertigo-tour.com/show1267.html

The removal of Miracle Drug in the later stages of the third leg did not really affect the HTDAAB song count as OOTS was brought into its spot. It was less to do with people getting beers and more to do with the fact OOTS was the current single and it didn't fit all too well elsewhere in the set.

Ah, yeah, that leg averaged around six HTDAAB songs, though not only due to Miracle Drug's absence. Songs like ABOY and Yahweh made only sporadic appearances. The most HTDAAB songs in one show was seven at the first Mexico City gig, and Monterrey had seven too if you count Vertigo x2 (which I don't, but the counter on U2VT does).

Bitching may be a strong word for it, but the thread isn't asking "what would you change on Vertigo tour?" so good point.

Actually, a 360 endzone setup in stadiums would add close to 10,000 tickets in every Euro market.

Stadium 360 has been done in the past by Rod the Mod and possibly Sir Cliff.

Madonna did this on her last tour with Live to Tell, while hanging from a mirrorball cross, she sang the song, while the screens in the background displayed the faces of African children, while a counter counted up to 12,000,000 (the number of children in Africa orphaned by AIDS), then some more information, web addresses, and the passage Matthew 25:35-40 (which is also one that Bono likes to quote). It got the point across without a speech breaking the flow of the show.

LEMON shaped. I had a dream about it, and it was beautiful. Painted yellow, with flashy blue lights everywhere

I also want Mofo, and Gone, and Last Night on Earth. I want U2 to remember that they're a rock band. A Pop encore would be fantastic.

Also, people that can't name all of the albums shouldn't be allowed in the door

I don't care who they let in the door, I just want to be allowed to stick gagballs in people's mouths who talk during the songs.
Yes, sing along, but DON'T talk to your friend about how your day was.

I was reading U2byU2 and Paul stated that they regretted not doing Stadium shows in NA for the third leg of Vertigo because the demand was certianly there.
