Songs U2 should drop from their setlist for the next tour ...

Bullet The Blue Sky - getting tiring.

Until The End Of The World - we're all fed up with the bullfight sequence.

With Or Without You - wake me up when it's over.

What songs do you guys feel U2 should drop from their setlist?

Cheers,

J
The King Of POP

I'd pay full price to hear just those three songs live...don't see what the problem is.

why must we always bring negativity out of every positive thread?

*sigh*

i suppose i find bullet the blue sky is old, too. i never really liked the song. this may sound weird, but i think it eventually got a bit over-the-top. it eventually got too much...he'd be like "slappin em down, 100! 200! 300! *five hours later* 503,410! 503,420!"

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.

new year's day,
with or without you,
pride.
although i love these three songs the current live versions lack the power and passion of the first live performances' in support of the albums they came off. maybe as a surprise performance every once in a while.
U2 should continue with their ZOO TV attitude of performing newer songs and then throw in some old songs for good measure.

Pride
New Years Day
I Will Follow
Desire


Removal of any other songs would be sacrelgious.

With or Without You is the only song I would really consider leaving off a setlist in the future...it just doesn't match up to the intensity of previous tours (JT, Lovetown, and Zoo TV)...but the presentation of it this past tour more than made up for that.

That being said, I do agree with kingofsorrow, playing mostly new tunes would keep the performances fresh, and make the older songs a lot sweeter to hear.

How can you take out I Will Follow?

There are some standards that must be played and IMO I Will Follow is one of them.

I do agree with dropping BTBS.

In order to fit in new songs, old ones have to be dropped. I'd much rather hear Walk On or WILATW or Elevation than BTBS.

I think the solution is for them to start playing marathon Bruce-like three hour shows.

Oh, I'd also drop the Dancing With The Random Audience Girl in WOWY.
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.

-what you thought was freedom was just greed-

They should drop all of them except every song from Pop, they should just play Pop all the time every song, maybe some songs twice.

yeah. yeah yeah.

Desire has got to go.
period.
I am completely sick of this song; especially the lame "acoustic/audience participation" version they've done for the last 6 years.

at the very least, because it's the only freaking old song they play. the stuff from war came out after they'd started to get popular worldwide, but the boy/october stuff wasn't. now if they dropped it and put one or two older stuff in its place, that'd be fine with me.

god yes, it's so disappointing to hear that instead of something closer to its original version.

To replace the order of the songs , yes , but not to drop them
maybe to add some new ones

this thread made me realise that Elevation set-list was quite good .

I'm getting kind of sick of hearing Bullet too...Not one of my favorites...

But that's the only one that comes to mind...
