Speaking to Dave Fanning of Irelands's 2FM a few weeks back, Edge said the band had begun thinking about this year's shows. Dave mentioned that in 2009 there was always five or six songs from No Line on the Horizon: 'Would you keep that many?

'We were talking about adding more,' said Edge, in a decidedly enigmatic tone. 'Changing out some of the songs...'

And that was it, the subject was closed, he was giving nothing else away. But we can dream can't we ? So here's the thing: if you could add in a song from 'No Line' which wasn't a regular in the set last year ... what would it be?

And while you're musing on that one, what song from any earlier album, which didn't feature in 2009, would you love to hear in the mix this time around ?

Answers in the box below please. One different track from No Line, one other track from any earlier album. (And why, if you have the time...)

(If your memory needs refreshing on the songs the band were performing last year, check the 2009 dates and click on any city to see the set list.)

A New Song?
Definitely Stand Up Comedy! It's one of the strongest songs on the album.

Songs
I would love to see Unknown Caller stay in the setlist. Play I'll Go Crazy the studio way, they've got a great song to play for the 'disorienting' spot in the setlist. that song is Mofo. they've got to play it. would also love to see the setlist change a bit more from show to show and especially change the Encore. OOOHH!!! and most of all id love to hear The Fly again thanks

Acrobat and Stand Up Comedy
I believe Stand-up comedy is a fantastic up tempo song that is needed in the setlist. As far as Acrobat...it has never been played live, it is a fantastic song filled with emotion, and it would create just as much happiness from fans as Ultraviolet did.....

Stand up, etc.
It would be great to hear stand up comedy live. I would also love to hear zooropa and a sort of homecoming (that would be a dreamcomethrough!)

bring back the big opener!!!
I'd like to see a better building opener for the shows, maybe No Line, or Fez. I love the anticipation and the build of energy you can feel in the stadium with some of their previous entrances. Don't you think ' Instant Karma' would go over so well with the 360 set up? Or maybe 'Window in the Skies'? And play more earlier stuff like anything from Boy. See ya Edmonton!!!

A tough one
If we needed to add a song from "No Line", I would say Stand Up Comedy. (though I'd rather keep the ones we have) :) A song from an earlier album...I have 2..."I will Follow" or "Even Better Than The Real Thing"

360 Being Born
I also think Fez would be an AMAZING opener, or possibly a starter for an encore set. that would blow my mind. I think the 360 show is made for the grandeur of Pop! Bring back Gone. Please, you know you want to U2.

My choices
Stand Up Comedy from NLOTH :) Drowning Man!! They rehearsed it multiple times before the tour AND it was the song featured in the "1 Day" Countdown to 360 video before the European leg started - it broke my heart when it didn't appear in the setlist :( (If not that, Discotheque! They already have the disco ball and it would kick ass in the Claw :D)

More is Better
Why take any songs out? Add two or three more for a third set / 2nd encore.....Thats what we REALLY want !! Add 'GONE' off POP; The Fly off AB; and Gloria from October.
