As reports of rehearsed songs are appearing all over the internet, I'm closing this thread temporarily. Thank you all for participating. We will come back to this thread after opening night to see who's the winner.
And I'm back to go over your answers and check if we had a winner.
The correct answers were: Spoiler (click to toggle)1) 22
2) Sunday Bloody Sunday
3) The Little Things That Give You Away (New Song)
I'm sorry to say that none of you had this right. In fact, none of you had neither the opener or the closer right! (It was almost impossible to guess this tour).
Special mention to Greg (blueeyedboy) for suggesting that Spoiler (click to toggle)A new song was going to be the opener which was half-right.
Anyway, thanks again for your answers. I hope we can make another contest very soon!
"The last two weeks of the making of any U2 album are 'chaos'. Everything is up for grabs; lyrics are still being written, some songs are being entirely retooled and others simply dumped."

The Picture of Dorian Grey mentioned in the song 'The Ocean' is a novel by Oscar Wilde, the Irish author who has been a huge influence on Bono's lyrics. In referring to it, Bono mocks his own vanity in thinking a rock star can change the world.
