1. "11 O' Clock Tick Tock"
2. "Party Girl"
3. "Seconds"
4. "Red Light"
5. "Surrender"
6. ""40""
7. "A Sort Of Homecoming"
8. "Wire"
9. "The Unforgettable Fire"
10. "Running To Stand Still"
11. "Red Hill Mining Town"
12. "In God's Country"
13. "Trip Through Your Wires"
14. "Exit"
15. "Heartland"
16. "Until The End Of The World"
17. "The Fly"
18. "Lemon"
19. "Some Days Are Better Than Others"
20. "Dirty Day"
21. "Mofo"
22. "Miami"
23. "Ground Beneath Her Feet"
24. "When I Look At The World"
25. "New York"
26. "Miracle Drug"
27. "Love And Peace Or Else"
28. "City Of Blinding Lights"
29. "Crumbs From Your Table"

(Encore) 30. "New Year's Day"

editor's note: I know this is a bit aggressive in length and song selection, but I'd pay $300 for a ticket if I was guaranteed this show.

Do they play any of those, or is that just your ideal setlist?

I'm with you on Zooropa -- my second favorite after the obvious casual U2 fan's...Joshua Tree.

cgpop, where are your seats? we're on the floor tonight.

impressive setlist. and i know it's trendy, but how can you leave off "where the streets have no name"? just a ridiculous live song. and just to hear the opening guitar of "in god's country" would have me shrieking like a little girl.

A must have song for me is "Gone" incredible live, I am guessing. It sounds good live anyway.

I am in section 117 tonight; I will be the drunk one.

Jealous of you floor seats Elliot!

so hearing a bum playing the beginning of sunday bloody sunday on a trash can on main street of this choo choo town would make me happy.

Although it is generally a black sheep of a song because it was during a more experimental type of sound, I think the song Discotheque is pretty damn good.

i have to agree with chw. hell, just go ahead and play 'unforgettable fire' from start to finish. in fact, to continue my previous post, after you play "MLK", just roll right into "where the streets have no name".
