need some input....

Okay, so I think that my girl is trying to put together some kind of b-day gathering for me... but not just any gathering, one with a famous band! Well, close to the real thing. A U2 cover band! Now, I don't want to get ahead of myself because I'm guessing that is what she going to have for me. I've been sitting down and thinking.... what would be the best set list where the best songs can come as one? Please feel free to participate in this fun set list. You can add, remove or shuffle songs around. Thanks.

SET LIST

Zoo Station
The Fly
Even Better the Real Thing
Mysterious Ways
One
Until The End of the World
I Will Follow
The Electric Co.
An Cat Dubh
11 O'Clock Tick Tock
Gloria
Two Hearts beat as One
Trying to Throw your arms Around the World
Spanish Eyes
Trip through your wires
With or Without you
I Still Haven't Found what I'm looking for
Bullet the Blue Sky
Running to Stand Still
Where the Streets have no name

City of Blinding Lights
Vertigo
Beautiful Day
New York

Angel of Harlem
Stuck in a Moment
All I want is you

You should put some songs in there that U2 has never played.
The band might appreciate doing more below-the-surface stuff.

Beautiful Day is there....


Well, they have quite a few songs that are rarities. But I wanted to incorporate a little bit of everything from every tour, including b-sides. Don't mind me, I want peoples opinion on this. You can shuffle songs around. Let me know. Thanks!

Hola

I have an idea:

What about playing different setlists according to the different U2 eras? that will bring to you and your band a lot of fun and hours of joy

I mean, for example, one day your band perform a War Tour show, with the setlist according to what U2 played in those days. Other day your band perform a Joshua Tree Tour show, then an Elevation Tour one, a Zoo TV gig, a Lovetown Tour night, etc, etc with the clothes they used for each tour !!!.

All you have to do is go to www.u2tours.com and see what the band playing on every era

Most of highly reviewed tribute bands (for example, Genesis Musical Box or Pink Floyd The Surrogate Band ) perform shows from different eras with extraordinary musicalship Also here in Chile there're a lot of great tribute bands (my closefriends from Beatlemen are a great example !) who perform shows with the clothes, characters, etc


It would be great if your band like to do something like that


Good luck

Yeah, they do play by era's at times. But being that this is going to be a one day event... a birthday event, I wanted to see what the best set list would be for one night. Having the most & best out of every era... catch my drift?
