Rehearsals in Vancouver, 8 May 2017

Today, U2 have continued rehearsals in Vancouver after taking a break yesterday. There was an afternoon session of tinkering followed by a more substantial show runthrough in the evening. As always we are grateful to those who have provided updates, including text updates on Interference by jimyc and a Periscope feed by Bjorn Lodding.

In the afternoon, the band spent a long time working on the transition to the Pavarotti verse of Miss Sarajevo—at least twenty minutes. Edge continues to play this song on guitar, not piano, which is a new take on how to perform the song live. It was followed by a full Red Hill Mining Town, an incomplete Running to Stand Still, some work on the transition from the end of Pride to the start of Where the Streets Have No Name, a full Ultra Violet, a couple of goes with some taped intro music into Sunday Bloody Sunday, and then a more complete run-through of Sunday Bloody Sunday. We believe the intro music may be The Pogues' A Rainy Night in Soho, and that Sunday Bloody Sunday is a good chance to be the concert opener.



The band took the stage in the evening for a longer rehearsal. The set they performed was preceded again by the taped intro. They played:

 

  1. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  2. New Year's Day
  3. A Sort of Homecoming
  4. MLK
  5. Pride
  6. Where the Streets Have No Name
  7. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  8. With or Without You
  9. Bullet the Blue Sky
  10. Running to Stand Still
  11. Red Hill Mining Town
  12. In God's Country
  13. Trip Through Your Wires
  14. One Tree Hill
  15. Exit
  16. Mothers of the Disappeared / El Pueblo Vencera (snippet)

    encore:
  17. Beautiful Day
  18. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
  19. One
  20. Miss Sarajevo
