The perfect U2 set list

At first glance this ideal set list might look a tad long. But when you consider it's usually four to five years between U2 albums and tours, a show approaching three hours (this one clocks in at 2:45, minus any Bono speeches) would be a real crowd-pleaser, as would a few songs that they haven't played in a while, like One Tree Hill or Wire. So here goes:

Zoo Station • Elevation • The Electric Co. • An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart • Beautiful Day • Surrender • Running To Stand Still • Stuck In a Moment You Can't Get Out Of • Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses • Wire • Until the End of the World • October/New Year's Day • Original of the Species • Trip Through Your Wires • Bad


Gloria • Vertigo • Even Better Than the Real Thing • The Fly • Ultraviolet (Light My Way) • Stay (Faraway, So Close!) • Acoustic set: Desire, If God Will Send His Angels, In A Little While • With Or Without You • Out Of Control • New York • Sunday Bloody Sunday • Walk On

First encore:

Where the Streets Have No Name • Gone • Twilight

Second encore:

One Tree Hill
