@atu2comSherry I love the snippet. I think it’s quite gorgeous. I just don’t think it fits with One. Fits more w/upbeat song.
@SallieAnnG I’ll go on record as saying Walk On may have been their best non 40 closer ever. Or at least since Love Is Blindness maybe.
Enough nitpicking from me. U2 are back and they’re sounding great. Plus, October and Zooropa were PLAYED IN THE SAME SHOW! Wow. #U2ieTour
@SallieAnnG But with One, I saw it close two of my NYC gigs and it wasn’t a terrible closer. Not the best though.
@SallieAnnG I’ve always been a “Streets should end the main set” guy, but it sounded like it worked where it was today.
@ekstewie They were already a great live band before Zooropa’s 2011 revival. But what a moment its return was. That’s what great bands do
@StartAtlnfinity Ahh, yes. So make that three of four legs! I was just thinking of the North America shows.
@SallieAnnG It didn’t really work with Streets, but it REALLY doesn’t work with One
Lastly, the first set flows much better than the second set. 2nd set has AMAZING individual performances, but 1st set more enjoyable theater
@StartAtlnfinity By our database, yes. 1- Europe ’09, 2- NA ’09, 3- Europe ’10, 4- Aussie ’10, 5, South Africa ’11, 6- SA ’11, 7- NA ’11.
3. Mother And Child Reunion makes a lot more sense leading into Beautiful Day. Could lead perfectly into Adam’s bass on BD. #U2ieTour
2. Am I the only one who thinks Mother and Child Reunion doesn’t fit with One? Lyrics/themes are 100% different. So strange. #U2ieTour
1. If I told you in March 2011 that Zooropa would be played on two of U2’s next three tour legs (360 7th leg, #U2ieTour) what would you say?
Chris here. Sounded like an AMAZING show. A few thoughts came to my mind today though… #U2ieTour
@nevri We tweeted this but forgot to add it to the setlist later. Thanks for the heads up.
@EveryBrokenWave Now I hope that’s all, because I’m going to lie down!
@EveryBrokenWave Fixed both! And noted that this is in fact the first performance of Zooropa in continental Europe.
@EveryBrokenWave Ah crap, what now?
@rendigryce Fixed now! You can tell the 4am start is getting to me…
OK, it’s 7am here and I (Ax) am exhausted. Good morning/afternoon/night folks, see you tomorrow for Turin 2.
@EveryBrokenWave Good catch. The tiredness is getting to me now.
