I agree that it is not the same case as the Joshua tree : Achtung Baby songs have been all played live (ok except "so cruel") and for some many times at different tours.
MacPhisto came back last tour also...
Definitely I prefer a tour of a new album and songs
No thanks. I love to hear So Cruel once. And I hope Acrobat and Love is Blindness will be played again. The other songs were played often. I'm actually at that point that i don't give a sh#t about One anymore...
I voted yes but really it’s an AB anniversary tour I want as opposed to a zoo tv one. I’m not bothered about them trying to copy zoo tv the AB songs are good enough to be played with any kind of set up, I just want that album in full. Then follow that up with a new album and new tour shortly after. They’ve not played songs like zoo station, wild horses and the fly enough times over the years. That run they got at the end of E&I was very short when you consider how many shows they’ve missed. There’s also Tryin to throw your arms around the world that hasn’t been played since zoo tv, love is blindness that was only half played once since zoo tv and so cruel that hasn’t been played since zoo tv. Acrobat only just got played for E&I so that’s not really been played enough either considering it missed all of zoo tv.
The only nostalgic tour I'd be happy with would be Pop (for example 25th Anniversary tour in 2022). We heard almost all importan AB songs in last few years (even from Zooropa). I miss just LIB and Lemon...
And if they add some NLOTH songs in one rotation slots, would be great
"Hawkmoon 269 was recorded in Sunset Sound, with all that shit that happens around there going on. Search-and-destroy choppers looking for drug busts, Sunset Strip, hookers. Every neon sign advertising sex in some shape or form. You could feel all that coming through in 'Hawkmoon'."

did you know
The band considered releasing The Joshua Tree as a double-album that would have included B-sides. Bono was the most vocal proponent of the idea, whereas The Edge argued for the 11-track version that was ultimately released.
