Showtime 2011

10 Feb 2011283
This tour started way back in June 2009 and now here we are in February 2011.

But every time the tour opens up on a new leg, the band, as Edge says, think about 'changing things up'.

Last year, hundreds of you told us of  songs you'd like them to put into the European leg - an unplayed track from 'No Line' or a classic from an earlier album.

But no-one could have guessed that a handful of unreleased tracks - North Star, Return of the Stingray Guitar, Glastonbury etc - would arrive in the show nor that Love Rescue Me, which hadn't been performed for twenty years, would make a reappearance down under.

The year before no-one predicted that Ultraviolet or Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me would become 360 showstoppers.

So what would be a great surprise to hear in the show in 2011?

Let's do what we did last year: what's a songs you'd love to see in the set, that hasn't turned up on the tour to date ? One song only and why you'd love to hear it.

(Click on a city in these 2009 or 2010 dates to remind yourself what songs have been in the set in the tour so far.)

We REALLY hoping for U2 plays these songs here in Brazil. Opening with "Beautiful Day" being VERY SPECIAL for all of us, is a incredible gift! So many specials songs... Go back to playing "No Line on the Horizont", "Unforgettable fire" and "Breathe"! They are amazing live!!! ...course, "Where the Streets" NEVER can out!

The most unforgettable experience of my
U2 Johannesburg on Sunday was a technologically mind-blowing occasion with U2 putting on a performance that brought myself and my woman to tears with its emotional message and heartfelt delivery. Thank you U2 for joining us in South Africa.

HEARTLAND
There are 100 more songs I would like to hear but my favorite is Heartland! I know my dream will never come true! I think Bono is not able to sing this song in this time... But they should try it as a challenge for Bono's voice! =)
KITE AND PLEASE
KITE AND PLEASE ARE THE SONGS THAT MAKE MY LIFE MORE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ..

So many songs....
Bono said in Pasadena: "We got old songs... We got new songs... We got songs we can barely play..." So here is my list of part of these fantastic songs... I hope to see one of them in this tour (at least in São Paulo): 1) Barely or never played before: Stand up Comedy, Crumbs from your Table, When I look at the world, Red Hill Mining Town, Window in the Skies, Sweetest Thing, Electrical Storm, The Hands that Built America (Full Version)... 2) New songs: Unknown Caller, No line on the Horizon, I'll go crazy If I don't go Crazy Tonight (Studio Version - "Encore"), Every Breaking Wave, Mercy... 3) "Old" songs: Bad, All I want is you, Out of Control, Stay, Angel of Harlem, Gloria, Ultra Violet, Running to Stand Still, Kite, Yahweh... Well, there are so many songs... Maybe we'll need so many nights in this tour to see all this songs or part of them... "I can't wait any longer" to see U2 here in Brazil for the first time of my life!!! (São Paulo, 10th)...

STAY
Please Stay, in Mexico. It's very difficult to pick only one song. We love you guys, very much!

Luminous Times..hold on to love
Would love to hear "Luminous Times" live! I've always thought that song had a lot of potential to be a show stopper, either stripped down or full-bodied. or...."A Room At the Heartbreak Hotel" could be a ton of fun. :-)

Unknow Caller
I would like to see in Brazil (São Paulo) this great song. It will be fantastic to hear: "São Paulo, you now your name... So, punch it in... Oh, Oh, Oh... (chorus of voices!!!)"

The Fly
The remix from the U2.com limited release "Communication" would be an awesome way to return a old favourite to the set list. Then there are so many to choose from God II, Trip through Wires and so many more. Thanks for Love Rescue me in Sydney. Can I suggest a sure top seller - U2 Live 100. Top 100 tracks Live from all sorts of venues, all different eras. Like a review of history from 1980's through to present.
