Poll: Will Elevation be dropped on future tours just like Zoo Station and Mofo?

My bet is YES.

I think a lot of it depends on where U2 goes with there next album. But I just don't see Elevation fitting in a show if it's not the opener.

Who knows. People seem to like Elevation a lot more than Zoo Station and Mofo (I mean people who are casual fans). Also, Elevation was a single, so it's more likely to be played than Zoo Station and Mofo. My conclusion : Who knows.

I think it can work as a non opener but it would need to be played the 2nd or 3rd song in. It was played 2nd at the Irving Plaza show and that seemed to work pretty well.

I was at the South Bend show where it was played in the encore and I didnt think that worked very well.

I think it will be played on at least the next tour as it is a single. Whereas Mofo and Zoo Station were not singles.

When "Streets" was the opener I couldn't imagine it anywhere else, but that moved back on the playlist sucessfully, so I'm sure they can do it with "Elevation"

Good answers everyone!

It's very mainstream...it's brought U@ a lot of popularity with non-die-hard-fans (NDHF). It's a crowd pleaser, an energy pumper. I say they'll keep it.

'Elevation' was a big single, with a huge positive response, plus it's just a great song! It'll definitely surface in the future...

I hope not. Elevation is the must pumped up song on ATYCB.

It will be played. Mofo and Zoo Station worked well because they captured the spirit of the concept show (Popmart and ZooTV) - but if you subtract the opening crowd surge and the opening effects (the screens for Zoo, the boxer opening for Mofo), they probably wouldn't be great live songs (on the U2 scale). Elevation works best as opener, but is such a kickass live song even by U2 standards - energizes the crowd and the audience - I can't imagine they'll drop it for a long time to come.

Elevation will be played because it was a hit, and pumped up opener, and is easily recognizable to casual fans - not that I'm saying this is what the band aim for.

I think they'll keep it. It's a good song opener or not!

Holy Sh#t.. I think I'd be nauseus from getting knocked in the stomach by those songs.. That would be an extremely kick ass segment of songs.. I'd throw in Last night on earth... Wow.. the dreams you guys get me to have..

Elevation is a classic opener, either for the main set or the encores. Whether they'll keep it or not is hard to say...I think they won't. Beautiful day and Walk on will probably stay in the set. It's just a vision of mine.
