What songs would you want to see U2 drop from their live act?

For me, it would have to be "Bullet The Blue Sky". I think they have played it at almost every show since the JT tour. I like the Zoo & Popmart versions, but wasn't crazy about the latest live version. It was never really one of my favorite U2 tunes either. I'd much rather see "One Tree Hill" or "In God's Country" if they were going to play something else from the JT.

I think MW works well live, but it's another tune they have always played. Pull out Acrobat!

I did think I Will Follow was cool with Bono on guitar for this tour, but let's hear An Cat Dubh instead! Bono's falsetto would be perfect for that song now.

Bullet The Blue Sky
I Will Follow ( it should be replaced with another old one, maybe Gloria or Twilight )

It would be great if they re-worked and updated some older songs. I like the new version of The Fly that they started playing on Elevation..

Maybe even bring some old songs back for an acoustic set, like they did when they played an acoustic version of In Gods Country.

Agreed. I would like to heard an electric Staring At The Sun though. I was hoping they'd do that on this tour...

I am a fan of pretty much every U2 song.. so it's hard to choose. But here is a few I wouldn't mind being absent.

I Will Follow (I love the Elevation version, but Out of Control is great, so I'd prefer they switched to Out of Control)
Wild Honey (not played much, but still.. I didn't like it live as much as Stay)
With or Without You

Oh.. the sheer torture of having to say things like that.

"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

They could stop playing Desire forever, as far as I'm concerned!

Bring back Gloria, Unforgettable Fire, A Sort of Homecoming, and 40! oh - and One Tree Hill.

They shouldn't cut anything. They should just play four hour concerts.

Seriously, this is impossible to do. I guess the only ones that wouldn't send me into a murderous rage if they were cut would be:

With or Without You
Mysterious Ways (Gah! But I love that song so much!!)

Also, I think I would in fact fly into a murderous rage if they ever cut Bullet or UTEOTW. And Streets. They must never ever cut Streets.

It'll be interesting to see what they play on the next tour. I mean, obviously they're going to have to cut *something* from the current setlists. Or they could just take my suggestion...

Don't play these songs regularly, once in a while would be fine:

1. Bullet the Blue Sky
2. Desire
3. I Still Haven't Found
4. New York
5. Pride
6. With Or Without You
7. New Years Day
8. Discotheque
9. Mysterious Ways
10. Angel of Harlem

How can Bullet be better on JT than live? I can't really figure that out! But hey, it's my opinion.

I think they should drop:

Pride
Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of Desire

Where the Streets Have No Name is the ultimate concert experience, they should never never never drop it.

Bullet
Until the End of the World
Sunday Bloody Sunday (reserved for special occasions)
New Year's Day (one of my favorites, but it needs a rest)
Haven't Found (it usually sounds half-assed)
