Zatchamp Posted March 3, 2014 Share Posted March 3, 2014 With the announcement today for Ghost Stories, I'm thinking we can probably bank on a tour by the end of the year, if not earlier. This obviously begs the question: What's going to make it on the Set? Therefore, predictions seem plausible. This isn't about what we would want, but rather what could reasonably happen. There's apparently only nine songs on the album, which equal to the number of songs on MX songs that became regular on the last tour. Assuming there will be 1-2 songs they won't perform from this album (historical pattern), let's assume 7 songs make it from GS. We can safely assume that the big 6 (Yellow, The Scientist, Clocks, Fix You, Viva La Vida, and Paradise) will be on the set too. In My Place, Charlie Brown, and Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall seem to stick around, so there's another 3. Atlas almost seems like a must-have too. That's 17 songs, and assuming that we get a 22 song set (similar to MX), that leaves 5 spots. Let the speculation begin- what else will we get? - God Put a Smile Upon Your Face seems to be a safe bet (probably with a new version), as does Violet Hill. - Politik and Talk are edging to make a return after being totally absent from the MX Tour. - Lovers in Japan and Lost! are viable candidates. In all likelihood, they'll only take one of them if historical patterns from MX are to be looked at. LiJ probably has the advantage, since it got the momentum near the end of the MX tour. - Speed of Sound has an outside shot, but Chris' distaste for it won't help its cause. - A non-single will probably make it (a la Warning Sign during MX), although it'd be hard to guess. Amsterdam, followed by Swallowed in the Sea, are obviously the sentimental favourites. - I'd reckon everything else is unlikely. I could see Trouble returning possibly, but hey, if Daylight and What If can make appearances during MX, who's to say Green Eyes, Strawberry Swing, or Low can't come back? What do you all think? What songs have the best shot? What's on the bubble? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
