Originally posted by podiumboy:I would’ve loved to have seen Little Things end a JT show. Instead I got “One” both times. I have seen them play One at all 14 U2 shows I have attended, and Little Things zero times.... and I’ll likely never see it at any future shows. Bummer.
As far as leaving early, many people want to beat traffic. My wife is big on doing this at concerts, especially if it’s a work night. She tried to get me to leave before the final song (MOS) at one of the 360 shows, and I made certain she knew that was not gonna happen. So if the last song is some slow burning new song that the casual fans have never heard, of course they’re gonna rush for the exits. U2 have been in the business log enough, they should’ve known that was going to happen.
What’s unfortunate is that U2 saw that kind of muted reaction to Little Things, and eventually quit playing it, and evidently they seem to have lost all their faith in the song in general. It’s one of the best from soe, and I was looking forward to hearing it on the SOE tour. Not to be...
