Shuttlecock XI: Yes Virginia, You Did Save Bono's Life

Wonder if Bono will be cycling during the break between legs...

They'll realise that this setlist just isn't giving the people what they want on a consistent basis, and so they'll play both One and I Still Haven't Found EVERY night.

Of course, you can't play more than 24 songs a night, so we gotta lose the 80s slot. Yep, that's right. We're gonna have an audience singalong for the SECOND song of the night!

Can't you guys wait!

Endless Deep, nice.

I think it's fairly obvious the second half of the main set and encore need serious work, but I'm sceptical whether the band will see that. I at least hope the awful fucking Hands/Pride thing falls by the wayside, but I've become increasingly cynical about any change at all.

I would assume a couple of tweaks for Europe, but minor ones. But good chance The Hands That Built America snippet will be one of those changes.

I don't see big changes. I said this elsewhere, but this strikes me as a Popmart kind of tour with very little variety throughout (although arguably it has had much more variety so far than Popmart).

I guess what I'm hoping for now is that the 2016 legs embrace the Experience side, and hopefully more of 1990s gems.

It would be cool if Dirty Day or ....Crashed Car were played on the next leg.

SiriusXM Townhall with U2: Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr. answer fan questions | SiriusXM Blog

Quote:
“The philosophy of the first album is probably best contained in a line from our second album October in a song called Rejoice. And the line is, ‘I can’t change the world, but I can change the world in me.’ That was the position that I think we felt when we were in our younger times,” he explained. “For Songs of Experience, it’s a different line — it’s in [the song] Lucifer’s Hands, which is an outtake that really has both innocence and experience in it – and it has the line, ‘I can change the world, but I can’t change the world in me.’

Bono continued: “So the thing is, when we were younger, we were fighting very much with the physical world and trying to make it a better place, trying to fight when we would see injustice wherever it raised its head. Whereas in the ‘90s we made a kind of a change, and we started fighting perhaps more interesting enemies, the ones that you find in your own life, in your own heart — the hypocrisy of the human heart is great material — and just finding those kinds of enemies, you know, it’s the world in you rather than the exterior world.”

Thematically, it never occurred to me til you just said that how much sense Acrobat would've made in the Bullet part of the show. Either right before it or right after it....ugh but I liked Pride there tooooooo.
