I almost agree. But I really want Until the End of the World back. I never seen it, and it was nice on the IE tour

EDIT: no, wait! No Walk On :-[

  • Dream out loud
Not Bullet The Blue Sky when they come to the UK on the E&I tour please.  The UK have been supplying arms to Saudi who have in turn been bombing innocent women and children in Yemen.  We need this song on the next tour (and U2 to back the cause).
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

streets
beautiful day
cobl
vertigo
EBW (hate the stripped back version, so pretentious)
elevation
mysterious ways
pride

dig out:
anything they've only played on one tour.
anything they've never played live.
Just deeper cuts. anything, ANYTHING apart from the ditch list above.

Almost added Streets to my Rest list, but that type of action might alter the space-time continuum.

GASP! And, silly old lady that I am, would give my left arm to see them play Streets every single day of my life. Well, at least the intro  ;D

They should someday start the intro to Streets and then say to hell with it and break into "A Celebration." :)

Funny! And, ya know, that would be cool (as long as they do the entire Streets intro first!)

I Threw a Brick Through a Window
Gone

The Troubles
Please
Zoo Station
Two Hearts Beat as One
Wire
Discotheque
Last Night on Earth


Give a Rest:

Bullet the Blue Sky
With or Without You

It's not that I dislike those songs---I've just heard them so many times that I wouldn't mind a tour without them.

The Casuals will take what they are given and like it. If the U2 empire can put SoI on every iPhone, I'm sure that they could put a suitable B-sides and Deep Track compilation on them too so that they get to know those songs a little better. :)

I tired of hearing that song live but it was an absolute highlight on the SOI tour.  They made it an important, relevant song again on that tour.  BBC Newsnight has covered the Yemen atrocities but very few other mainstream outlets report it.
