    I kinda was hoping it would be the opener, as something totally different (for a long, long time anyway). This was the only opportunity for it to happen.

    Although I agree the old school opening works very well too.
  2. I have to disagree with the bands logic completely these days about it not working as a show opener because ‘where do you go from there’ they said words to they effect. Well they dropped the song for an entire tour and it was played as early as the 4th song in 2017 so being the opener doesn’t sound like a crazy idea, how many people on here would be opposed to it being the opener? Playing the album first would have worked just fine imo.
  3. Bring back Mother and Child Reunion?

    And leave plenty of room for interesting things to happen after the JT set. Giving IE & EI highlights a chance.

    But we've got what we've got. Nothing new & inspiring. But hey it's a U2 show, & they're always brilliant in any case.

    I think Streets is great opener and always wanted to see it and this was opportunity... but they need to build something before that...
  6. They are creative enough to have some sort of intro lead itself into Streets as an opener. They could do it if they wanted. I’d just settle for them playing it better though.
