well, I heard them play it "full band"
not exactly the highlight of the show
Well, I dont think that is the case with So Cruel. Personally, I thought it was one of the highights of the 9-9-92 Detroit show. Just because someones Mom doesnt remember it from a concert that happened 10 years ago doesnt mean it wasnt good. Nice theory, last time I checked, Stay and So Cruel were two different songs. LOL Under your theory, songs they havent played much or not at all live must not be good live. I dont think that holds water.

that indeed is my theory,
or - at least - that the band doesn't think those songs work well live

I admit it's just a theory,
but it's a more likely one then assuming that the band does it to piss us off

LOL, oHHHH kAyyyyy

Actually I think you are right, it is a conspiracy just to piss you off because they dont play the songs YOU want, how dare they!!

Also, to shoot another hole in your theory. Alot of people think they should play Desire full band electric, yet they only play it acoustic. Electric Desire sounds awesome, whereas acoustic is average. So explain that one under your theory.

I think the most plausible theory is that they wouldnt even play a song in concert if they didnt think it was being played well. They may decide that a particular song doesnt fit the flow of the show, or the theme of the show or maybe they dont enjoy playing it. But that doesnt mean it is a bad song live at all.

IE Tomorrow
Dirty Day
Do You Feel Loved

Just to name a few were all great live but were either played sparingly and/or dropped entirely from the setlist. They still sound great live to me!

No, I don't think she didn't remember it because it wasn't memorable...It was her first U2 show and she was completely blown away. My first show was in Chicago in 1997 and I can't remember much about it...however, I could tell you a lot about my second show in Detroit...For me, I got so mesmerized and in such a daze...sort of like being really drunk and not remembering the next day what you did the night before.

I'm sober right now, and it looks like the same thing to me!
