For the 3rd leg opener, I dont think U2 would play Elevation first.....

cos I think they have repeated the song as a concert opener too many times on this tour so far so my reckoning is that they'll play something else for a change.

But the question is what song will they now play as a opener? Hmmm not sure if U2 have changed the openers between US legs before (like between Zoo TV and Outside Broadcast in 1992). Any idea if that happened?

Personally, I would like to see Out of Control as a opener, that'd be real cool!

please discuss....

Elevation will definately open the entire third leg. I think the setlists are going to be basically the same as the 1st and 2nd legs with maybe one or two new songs in there.

Hmm I suppose the general consensus here is that Elevation will continue to be the opener for the third leg.....

Ok what about the concert closer? Will Walk on still be played too? My feeling is that they will still play the song.... I cant see how U2 would change it for this leg......

I definately think that Elevation will continue to be played as the opener, so no change there. Whilst I think the band will probably continue with Walk On to close the show, I'd like to see the song changed a little, incorporating Peace on Earth at the start. (As per America: A tribute to Heroes). So moving.

It is still called 'elevation tour', so I believe they will still open with it. In an interview prior to the tour release, Bono mentioned that they wanted to start the tour with that song because it got them in "full flight" or something like that, and they were going for "lift off" and to "really rock the house"

I agree with you - I dont think Elevation will open it either.

Fancy this - Peace on Earth/Walk On like they did for the WTC Benefit.

Think about it...

I wouldn't be disappointed it at all. Then, Beautiful Day, Elevation, and a bunch of oldie but moldies. Haven't hypothesized about the rest, but I think there is indeed a 50/50 chance they will open with the POE/Walk On combo.

That would be shaking it up a bit dont you think??

You are all wrong... nothing will change. Why would it? It's the "Elevation Tour". Perhaps they'll add 'Peace On Earth' along there somewhere or maybe, but don't hold your breath- 'When I Look At The World', but other than that, it'll be the same, same, same... If you are wanting something different don't go, if I am wrong... I will buy Diamondbruno a beer in Vegas. But I won't be wrong!!!!!

Btw- Hi Dougal55!! Met you in Dublin! How's things?

oh please, that is such simplistic thinking. Think beyond the box. "It's the elevation tour therefore they have to open with it".

Gee, let's not leave any room for variation...

Well, when I say that it's the 'Elevation Tour' I don't mean because of the name they must open with the song- but logistics!! Reality check folks!!! Slane was barely a month ago and they are starting up next week. They have been on vacationpeople, not practising new songs and setlists to please the alimighty at Interference.

I personally don't want anything to change. I like the show, and I want to see that show!

has nothing to do with thinking outside of the box smartass.

The 5000 hardcore fans in attendance would be going crazy. As for everyone else...well, have you ever heard 15000 people say 'What the hell?' in unison before?
