1. Even opening and closing with Vertigo lol?
  2. I would take Vertigo over ISHFWILF as a closer any day. Opening with Vertigo and hence playing it twice was a totally different story, though, and it was crap. But I was talking about closing songs exclusively

    As much as I think Vertigo is overdone and meh and should be replaced in the set by another good U2 rock song, I agree with this.

    Still Haven't Found works as a closer lyrically, but it's a mid-tempo song that kind of just falls flat as a closer.

    But I gotta say, seeing the Joshua Tree tour in 2017, it was obvious they were closing with One, but the energy was so high and hungry that U2 made the call to play I Will Follow and it fucking ROCKED THE HOUSE.

    I've never seen so many middle aged people jumping like teenagers in one place. It was pandemonium and it was fucking awesome.

    YES. I didn't get to experience it but everyone says (and I agree judging from videos) that IWF was fucking incredible as a closer. @germcevoy swears IWF in Amsterdam almost got his faith in the band back!
  5. this song is very wronged by the band and most of the fans. IMO.
