And that’s the end of the gig, folks.
Moment Of Surrender.
Fun fact: MW has been second-last often, but this is the first time it has ever actually closed a main set.
With Or Without You.
Ultra Violet time.
Now, it seems, it’s time for the encore break.
Very, very brief Norwegian Wood snippet at the end of MW.
Holy shit, didn’t see MW coming. (Or, for that matter, anything but an encore break!)
Mysterious Ways after One!
If the previous post wasn’t a give-away, next song is One.
Here’s Bishop Tutu. So Zagreb II was seemingly no mistake and U2 HAVE realised Tutu belongs before “ONE! ONE!” better than Streets…
And it was I Still Haven’t Found’s 500th live appearance earlier.
By the way, people, this is the 666th live performance of Streets ever.
You’ll Never Walk Alone snip at end of Walk On, leads into Streets.
So, after Zagreb II, what’s the betting Desmond Tutu’s bit will stay before One or revert to preceding Streets?
Walk On http://yfrog.com/7hgygrj
… leads into Walk On. Tell me you didn’t see that coming. ;)
Pride after SBS
Rock The Casbah snip in SBS.
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Two Tribes and O Come All Ye Faithful snips in Crazy.
Vertigo after COBL.
Hahaha, as I’m saying, too bloody early! - RT @U2log ‘what time is it on the world?’ during Cobl
I (Ax) miss being in Europe… either at the gigs themselves or at least having the gigs on at a reasonable time of day to follow!
And now time for City Of Blinding Lights
Next song: The Unforgettable Fire
Still, 6am Melbourne time is far too early as far as I’m concerned!
Sorry for being late, folks. Matt’s focusing on the gig. This is Ax, and apparently I can’t calculate timezone differences.
London set so far: Breathe, NLOTH, Boots, Magnificent, Beautiful Day, Elevation, Still Haven’t Found, Stuck, Unknown Caller

Matt here about snippets. They can be listed below the setlist so it only lists full songs. If one want to see no snips put them down there.
Short video of queue at gate B/C at 9am: http://bit.ly/3lVcH6
http://ping.fm/p/5SQSU - Stadium in the sunshine.
@YouGrowWildS maybe next time I’ll stop by ;)
@blatantlyme here are 2 queues for different gates.
http://ping.fm/p/hF9hO - I think “Shush now” and “Password” shirts are new.
http://ping.fm/p/BFvwt - Wembley shirt.
http://ping.fm/p/nb6Lg - Around 200 in this queue.
http://ping.fm/p/xbIQl - Queue at gate B/C.
Shirts are 22£.
But then I may not … yes, I’m sure some of you are wondering where my Amsterdam/Dublin reviews are. So am I. Anybody seen them? ;)
@atu2 I may write an article explaining my rationale and approach to snippetry, as it would probably be a beneficial expansion upon the FAQ.
@atu2 This is getting far too long for Twitter! I’ve received all kinds of feedback re: snippets too, generally in favour of adding stuff.
@jpstarkey He’s still referencing Radiohead. It fulfils the definition of ‘snippet’. And I think it added something to the song.
@atu2 I use the dictionary definition of snippet, “small piece/bit, scrap, fragment”, hence no limitation on brevity.
@atu2 I am sincerely curious how substantial a fragmentary reference must be for you to consider it valid snippetry.
