U2 Fighting Over Setlist For Glanstonbury

Members of U2 are fighting with each other over a setlist?

 NME and Spinner are reporting that they have had arguments about what songs to play at Glastonbury festival that they are headlining on Friday June 24th.

Drummer Larry Mullen Jr told Radio 1's Zane Lowe:‘We've gone through a number of combinations. Everybody seems to have a slightly different opinion, which is not good news.’Everybody has a view on how it should go. There's the 'Where The Streets Have No Names' camp and then there's the more subtle approach, the 'Achtung Baby' dynamic approach, where you build slowly… Then there are those who think we should open with '40' (from 1983 album 'War'). It goes on. There are an awful lot of opinions.’

The band is even bringing his own stage at the festival, according to the festival organizer Michael Eavis, although it may be very difficult. The stage set is called ‘The Claw’, a 360-degree configuration, or simply the world largest concert stage structure. They are reported to be excited about the show since they had to cancel last year due to Bono’s surgery. So why the arguments about a stupid setlist?

Actually, they may have other things to worry about, as they will face a group from Art Uncut to protest against the band’s unclear tax affair: as rock nyc reported,  they moved a portion of their business from Ireland to the Netherlands to avoid a limit on tax break for artists. I know it will not happen but I just hope the protestors could make themselves very loud, stop the show, and solve at the same time this little setlist problem for U2
