We will have videos from Cardiff soon. Please be patient, though - Matt will upload once he’s back in Berlin.

 via web

@msilveruk maybe the roof was closed as they build the stage.

 via Twitter for iPhone in reply to msilveruk

Fun fact: Beautiful Day now has only 5 known snippets less than Bad, the song with most snips in database. Bad has 54; BD has 49.

 via web

Load out in progress. We try to stay inside even if they don’t want us here anymore. http://yfrog.com/74yvvrj

 via Twitter for iPhone

@Gravy1199 Seconds’ bass was played in Barca, but not soundchecked by full band as far as I know.

 via web in reply to Gravy1199

My personal favs out of the 19 I’ve seen on the European leg: Barca2, Milan, Berlin, Chorzow, Zagreb, Cardiff.

 via Twitter for iPhone

Rehearsed in Barca but not played: EBTTRT, IGWSHA, SYCMIOYO, Drowning Man. Soundchecked subsequently but not played: IWF, YBR.

 via web

It’s all over now. What a great great summer with U2 and so many old and new friends. Thank you. Matt

 via Twitter for iPhone

25 shows. 35 songs - 34 if you exclude Happy Birthday. 17 of them played at every gig. 6 soundchecked songs did not make into a set.

 via web

That’s it. Thus ends U2’s European tour for 2009. Bring on the North American leg…

 via web

@atu2 I (Ax) actually think Bad/40 is a better closer than 40 alone.

 via web

@DreamOutLoud65 You have no idea how excited I (Ax) was to hear Shine Like Stars at Dublin III.

 via web in reply to MUSEified_gurrl

Moment Of Surrender

 via web

Damn, no Shine Like Stars in WOWY.

 via web

With Or Without You

 via web

Encore time. Ultra Violet.

 via web

Bono played guitar in Bad, like London II

 via web

@atu2 Ax again. Will be great for me to do this in middle of day rather than 5am!

 via web

40 snip in Bad

 via web

Ax butting in here. Delighted to see Bad in the set. THE live U2 song if you ask me.

 via web

Bad!

 via web

One after Tutu’s speech

 via web

Where The Streets Have No Name

 via web

Walk On

 via web

Pride, MLK.

 via web

Seems Oliver’s Army has taken over from Rock The Casbah as SBS’s snip. Maybe Bono finally realised he doesn’t know Casbah’s lyrics…

 via web

Oliver’s Army snip in SBS

 via web

Sunday Bloody Sunday

 via web

Crazy Tonight

 via web

City Of Blinding Lights

 via web

The Unforgettable Fire

 via web

Unknown Caller

 via web

Stay

 via web

Stand By Me snip at end of ISHFWILF

 via web

Before ISHFWILF, Edge said hello to the audience in Welsh.

 via web

I Still Haven’t Found

 via web

Mysterious Ways

 via web

Snippet of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (Land Of Our Fathers), Welsh anthem, at start of Beautiful Day.

 via web

No Line On The Horizon

 via Twitter for iPhone

There has been a last minute set change, according to @U2log (details unspecified).

 via web

Way too much bass ATM.

 via Twitter for iPhone

Showtime in Cardiff.

 via Twitter for iPhone

The very top of the needle is missed today. Looks strange. Our beach balls do good.

 via Twitter for iPhone

Another snip added to database: Dubravka in B Day, Zagreb 09/08 (already listed for 10/08). Bono does it in both English and Croatian.

 via web

My external iPhone batt seems to look very very suspicious at airport security screening. They suggested not to carry all I have all time.

 via Twitter for iPhone

Snip added to 20/08 Sheffield set: very brief Pour Some Sugar On Me at end of Vertigo. A nod to Def Leppard, who formed in Sheffield.

 via web

@U2log Me too. One is yours. Should offer the 2nd for a lift from the airport ;)

 via Twitter for iPhone in reply to U2log

@U2log I bet we are on the same flight then.

 via Twitter for iPhone in reply to U2log

Matt here. On my way to Cardiff now. I have 2 spare GAs with me. Anyone? Mail to [email protected]

 via Twitter for iPhone

Two snips added to Glasgow 18/08 set: Up On The Catwalk at end of Elevation; Oliver’s Army during SBS.

 via web

So, today’s the day: U2’s last gig in Europe for 2009. Here’s hoping for something special. Matt will be there. I (Ax) wish I were.

 via web

Matt here. Feels unreal to hear them live but be not there as so many times recently. Can’t wait to be in Cardiff on Saturday.

 via web

And there we go, show’s over on the Q feed as well. It’s been a good time.

 via web

So I’m eating breakfast while listening to U2 close a concert (almost) live, in great sound quality. What a world!

 via web

The Elevation wah-wah must’ve been a mistake on the Polish end of the live feed. Didn’t notice anything untoward in the Q feed.

 via web

@arnaudt That may hold for the current tour, but I don’t think it does for past tours. Good spotting though!

 via web in reply to arnaudt

Shame that One didn’t have Hear Us Coming today.

 via web

Can’t believe there’s just one European show to go…

 via web

And the show’s done … though not if you hop over to the Q stream! Just up to Desmond Tutu now.

 via web

OK, I’m adding the Gloria snip to Streets, as ridiculously brief as it may be.

 via web

For those not listening live, Edge’s Elevation wah-wah effect cropped up in WOWY and MOS by accident. (thanks @atu2 and @U2start)

 via web

@U2start Thanks for clarifying. Won’t put that in the set then! But haha, this’ll be interesting to hear when Q catches up…

 via web

@U2start Wait, are you serious, Elevation snips in WOWY and MOS? Good god.

 via web

Now the band’s up to Moment Of Surrender.

 via web

No Shine Like Stars. :(

 via web

WOWY just isn’t WOWY without Shine Like Stars. Here’s hoping Bono does it tonight. It was great at Dublin III.

 via web

After UV is With Or Without You.

 via web

@U2start Aussie gigs will be at about lunchtime/early afternoon European time. Good luck to you lot staying up for US gigs…

 via web

Sometimes I think I should’ve stayed in bed and typed the set in my sleep. But this broadcast was worth getting up at 5:15am.

 via web

Ultra Violet opens the encore.

 via web

@U2log That sucks. Hope you can get things resolved and back online ASAP.

 via web

Encore break.

 via web

Forgot to mention at the time: today’s Beautiful Day was its 300th performance.

 via web

Yep, it’s Mysterious Ways after One!

 via web

So, reckon they will do MW after One tonight? Let’s hope! Though Bad would be even better…

 via web

… naturally leading into One.

 via web

And now Desmond Tutu has a GRRRRREAT message for Sheffield …

 via web

A snip of Gloria in Streets? Will check it myself when Q’s feed catches up.

 via web

@U2start Really hope the Aussie tour does happen, and that they also go to New Zealand - to my hometown of Wellington!

 via web

Now it’s time for Streets.

 via web

You’ll Never Walk Alone snip at the end of Walk On. Shame there’s no Liverpool gig this year, huh?

 via web

@U2start Ultra Violet once was enough for me. Cardiff is Matt’s last gig. This is Ax; I’m already back in Melbourne. Dublin was last.

 via web

@U2start A shower break? Haha. Guess that’d be the encore for me, assuming it remains unchanged.

 via web

And, of course, it leads into Walk On.

 via web

MLK now.

 via web

@U2start Stuck In A Moment is when I make my run for refreshments. Pride doesn’t sound all bad this tour.

 via web

And now Pride after SBS.

 via web

Oliver’s Army snip in SBS.

 via web

15th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via web

The Let’s Dance snip Bono was doing in Crazy seems to have vanished now…

 via web

Crazy also has Two Tribes snip.

 via web

@ProdigyShark Haven’t identified any snips not already listed in the set. Was there something at the end of Breathe too?

 via web in reply to ProdigyShark

Live, it’s Crazy Tonight with Reverend Black Grape (Come Ye Faithful) snippet.

 via web

So, the Q broadcast DOES include snippets, contrary to speculation re: the delay. Just heard Blackbird.

 via web

Vertigo is 13th song.

 via web

So no ADWM snippet in UF? Shame …

 via web

Next in the set is City Of Blinding Lights

 via web

Thanks folks, just added Happy Birthday to the set on the mainpage: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

 via web

Those of you listening to the live Polish feed, did Bono actually sing Happy Birthday himself, or just get the crowd to sing it?

 via web

Next is The Unforgettable Fire.

 via web

Oh, and the live set? After Stuck, it’s Unknown Caller.

 via web

Well, now I’m listening to Q’s delayed broadcast at least…

 via web

http://twitpic.com/emiew - The delayed broadcast on U2.com finally started.

 via TwitPic

Wow, IE for Mac is awful. And the feed still didn’t want to work for me. Damn!

 via web

Movin’ On Up snippet in ISHFWILF, then Bono gets crowd to sing Happy Birthday for Willie Williams, then Stuck In A Moment.

 via web

I Still Haven’t Found is seventh.

 via web

Blackbird snippet at the end of BD, now onto Elevation.

 via web

Now downloading/poisoning my computer with IE for Mac to see if the Polish feed works in that.

 via web

Fifth is Beautiful Day

 via web

Oh yeah, fourth is Magnificent.

 via web

No luck with the Polish link on Mac OSX, either in Firefox or Safari. Hope you folks have better luck …

 via web

Apparently a Polish link is really live (I must be the only person who can’t get it to work): http://bit.ly/zIByY

 via web

Third is Get On Your Boots

 via web

Second is No Line On The Horizon

 via web

Yep, radio is delayed. Breathe is the concert opener.

 via web

So, intro music has begun in Sheffield. Will the broadcast have a delay, then?

 via web

What a shock, U2.com seems to have fallen over… well, at least Q Radio seems to work. Interview now: http://radioplayer.qthem…

 via web

Remember, folks: the gig later today in Sheffield is being broadcast live on UK radio, and on U2.com for subscribers.

 via web

Ha, U2.com finally removed MW from their Glasgow setlist.

 via web

@jayteebee Look out for more stats trivia in the upcoming break between tour legs (hint hint, everyone).

 via web in reply to jayteebee

Next show will be Beautiful Day’s 300th live performance. It will be the first 2000s U2 song to reach 300 performances.

 via web

12+ hours later and U2.com still has MW incorrectly listed in their set. If they find sets so hard, we’d be happy to do it for them!

 via web

Looks like the O Come All Ye Faithful snips are actually a reference to Reverend Black Grape. Our database has been updated.

 via web

Here’s a laugh: U2.com’s Glasgow report claims MW was played. It wasn’t.

 via web

That’s the end of the gig, folks.

 via web

With Or Without You, now Moment Of Surrender

 via web

One ends main set - nothing after it, unfortunately. Encore opens with Ultra Violet.

 via web

One has the Hear Us Coming verse.

 via web

What’s the betting on MW following One as at London I? Here’s hoping …

 via web

One, preceded by Desmond Tutu’s speech.

 via web

All You Need Is Love snip in Streets

 via web

Lucky the sound’s been restored - the band’s launching into Streets.

 via web

Ha, sound system died during Walk On.

 via web

Walk On after MLK. You were expecting J. Swallow or Race Against Time, weren’t you? ;)

 via web

Pride, MLK

 via web

Sunday Bloody Sunday

 via web

Two Tribes snip again at the end.

 via web

Crazy Tonight time. Has a Two Tribes snip at the start.

 via web

Looks like UF did have the ADWM snip again. Thanks folks!
