You could almost call the 360 Tour, Lovetown Pt. 2

They've strayed so far from the original material and new material from No Line (no North Star, Mercy, Every Breaking Wave played in America) -- gone are No Line, Unknown, Breathe...

Back are gems like Pride, Stay, All I Want Is You...

Not that it's a bad thing, kind of awesome in a way... very reminiscent of Lovetown, more keen on playing the older/rare stuff, less on political message...

So does this mean we'll get ZooTV Pt. 2 next?

Joking.

And the fact that you know, how many lovetown sets were identical for more than 1 night running?

I don't see any comparison with Lovetown at all.

most likely blew his mind at one of the madly rare performances of elevation.

And since when did Lovetown stray from new material? Hawkmoon 269 wasn't a regular (unfortunately since it was the best live song from that album and one of U2's best concert openers), Heartland wasn't played at all (sniff), but the rest of the original material was played quite regularly. Plus All Along the Watchtower.

Somebody's on crack.

Not even close, but this is the first tour in a very long time that has actually seen significant improvements/changes in the setlist take place during the latter part of the tour rather than the other way around. For the most part Elevation/Vertigo were great during their early legs but sucked toward the end with regards to setlists, while 360 has kinda turned out to be the opposite of that, IMHO.

Now if we could only get Heartland! ;-)

If you start to think about it, the NLOTH material really isn't that new anymore. It's been close to 2.5 yrs since it was released. I'm not surprised they've been changing up the set some.

I agree with you, except for the part that although Vertigo's final setlists were much weaker than what came before, they were still pretty solid. 360 in 2009 and 2010 had by far - in my humble opinion - the worst setlists U2 ever had - so I'm delighted to see that I actually like the 2011 sets. Still worse than most what came before that, but I'm enjoying the improvement.
