The entire acoustical jam session. Lame and boring.

Bullet-You could really see they were reaching with this song on the Elevation tour.

WOWY-UNLESS it is played with Bono and Edge on guitars like in Rattle and Hum. It does sound really tired though.

New Years Day and Sunday Bloody Sunday. Boring and forced.

Those are really the only songs I skip over on my bootlegs.

Oh, and anything from Pop. Who needs it?

I Will Follow... though it seems they never tire of that
WOWY. Boring these days.
Bullet HAS been played a lot but from my very biased point of view I would have them keep it. Just because I haven't been to a show and would very much like to see it.
Desire indeed, though I do like the harder rock zootv version.

Pride
Until The End Of The World (ducks)

Love both songs, but they have been played to death live. They need a break for a tour.

I saw Pop live and have watched the ZooTV (and Popmart) videos so many times I have everything memorized. When I saw Elevation live, I found some of the acts getting a little tiring. UTEOTW bullfight was/is old. The BTBS 100-200 was super in the 90's, but now it's old and too predictable. The running down the runway of streets has been done too many times, and dancing with a girl has losts its novelty. (although it certainly wouldn't lose its novelty if I was the girl! )

I don't think U2 could ever eliminate their huge songs like Pride, I Will Follow, and Sunday Bloody Sunday (although I wouldn't mind seeing them go). Also WOWY is getting old, but it is their biggest song so how could they not play it? I think perhaps they could change them a bit. For instance, during PopMart the end bit of "Streets" brought a new and terrific twist. Also, BTBS was kinda different with the new guitar rifts and the Charlie Chaplin act (although the 100!, 200! was still there). Perhaps they could take some of the tired songs and tired acts and spruce them up a bit instead of them being the same old same old. U2 fans love it when U2 gives their original songs with a new twist!

IMO its changed the meaning of the song. People stopped listening to the songs when Bono started pulling people up. In so many GA lines I would sit and listen to these slutty girls talking about how they had to get in the heart or near it because they just KNEW they were going to get pulled up at some point. I swear, one girl didn't know that WOWY was on JT. She just wanted to be pulled up....wasn't even really a fan.
Anyway, that is my babbling for this thread.

Oooo, I wanna dance, I promise I'll still listen to the song! And I know WOWY is on JT!!

Bullet - I'm bored by it. I don't even like the album version much.

Desire - Mediocre song, there are dozens that are better.

UTEOTW - I like it, but not every night, because it's become too much of a performance, and it's been done to death.

Pride - I've heard it enough times.

Desire?!? DESIRE?!?!

Y'all are on some high grade crack.

As for the following statement: " at the very least, since they seem to agree with america's political views now (i'm not saying they're kissing our asses or anything) then i think they shouldn't also play anti-american songs."

They seem to agree with america's political views now? What political view is that? Isn't that quite a generic statement? I'm getting sort of sick of people waxing on about how un-american U2 is for "Bullet" - they aren't allowed to have an opinion about this country? Do americans have an opinion about Ireland? Ugh.

That said they can drop "Bullet". Not because it's anti-american, it's because it's lost it's passion now. Oh and WOWY can go bye-bye anytime now and if I offer them a shiny dime, would they never play "Stuck in a Moment" again?

Definitely, olive- bring back more Pop songs!

But as for songs to drop, I'd say that SBS and Pride are getting kind of old. They're such big hits, though, so I don't know if the band would actually drop them (especially Pride).

bullet (indeed it's quite overplayed)

pride (not that i dislike the song but they should play something we barely hear live)

WOWY (bit boring)

stay faraway so close (probably the only song i ever skip on the dvd)

gone (although pop is my favorite album i think they can give more play to other songs they completely ignore the album)

wake up dead man (i love this song but i don't like how they never kick into the actual song and actually finish it)

I have never agreed with something so much in my life.

I say Bad and Stay.

They can't drop Bullet; Bono'd have to come up with another use for his flashlight.

looks like this is going to turn into one of those "how could you threads" I didnt read past first page of posts, here's the ones I'd get rid of from setlist:

1. New Years Day (bring it back in 10 years)

2. Sunday Bloody Sunday

3. Mysterious Ways

4. Bullet the Blue Sky

5. With or Without You

6. Pride

7. I Will Follow

8. Discotheque

9. Hold Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, Thrill Me

10. Desiiiiiiiire

Time to take us into the next millenium...

I only saw U2 on the Elevation Tour, so every song that they did was great to see live. However for someone following them a long time, I could see how people would want to give Bullet The Blue Sky and Until The End Of The World a rest. I think after 3 tours it might be time for One to get a rest on the next tour. At least I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For got a much needed rest on the first two legs of the Elevation tour. I would have been really sick of singing that one after so many tours.

Pride
With or Without You
I Still Haven't Found...

I've heard several live renderings of these songs and IMO they just never really sounded that great compared to the studio versions.

BTW, is there a thread I'm missing about what they should ADD to the set list?

Oh, and I know it's probably taboo to agree, but "One" isn't doing it for me anymore either.
