Stage without top of needle. http://yfrog.com/83mi0j
It’s all over now. What a great great summer with U2 and so many old and new friends. Thank you. Matt
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.
That’s it. Thus ends U2’s European tour for 2009. Bring on the North American leg…
@atu2 I (Ax) actually think Bad/40 is a better closer than 40 alone.
@DreamOutLoud65 You have no idea how excited I (Ax) was to hear Shine Like Stars at Dublin III.
Moment Of Surrender
Damn, no Shine Like Stars in WOWY.
With Or Without You
Encore time. Ultra Violet.
Bono played guitar in Bad, like London II
@atu2 Ax again. Will be great for me to do this in middle of day rather than 5am!
40 snip in Bad
Ax butting in here. Delighted to see Bad in the set. THE live U2 song if you ask me.
One after Tutu’s speech
Where The Streets Have No Name
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…
Oliver’s Army snip in SBS
Sunday Bloody Sunday
City Of Blinding Lights
The Unforgettable Fire
Unknown Caller http://yfrog.com/0vwlij
Stand By Me snip at end of ISHFWILF
Before ISHFWILF, Edge said hello to the audience in Welsh.
I Still Haven’t Found
Snippet of Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (Land Of Our Fathers), Welsh anthem, at start of Beautiful Day.
No Line On The Horizon
There has been a last minute set change, according to @U2log (details unspecified).
Way too much bass ATM.
Showtime in Cardiff.
The very top of the needle is missed today. Looks strange. Our beach balls do good.
U2 plane with engines still on. http://yfrog.com/7ga0nlj
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.
My external iPhone batt seems to look very very suspicious at airport security screening. They suggested not to carry all I have all time.
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.
@U2log Me too. One is yours. Should offer the 2nd for a lift from the airport ;)
@U2log I bet we are on the same flight then.
Matt here. On my way to Cardiff now. I have 2 spare GAs with me. Anyone? Mail to [email protected]
Two snips added to Glasgow 18/08 set: Up On The Catwalk at end of Elevation; Oliver’s Army during SBS.
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.
