September 2009

@eddemkleetun Touche! I had happily erased all memory of Kelis opening for U2 from my mind.

 via web in reply to eddemkleetun

Printed set from DC reveals nothing was dropped mid-show, only 22 songs were planned from the outset.

 via web

Today’s full setlist, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

 via web

Well, that’s it, 22 songs. Surprised NLOTH cut. And Pride has now equalled its 2001 record of missing eight shows in a row.

 via web

22nd and probably last is Moment Of Surrender.

 via web

21st is With Or Without You.

 via web

Numerous European gigs had only 22 songs, but if this show does, it’ll be the first in North America to fall shorter than 23.

 via web

@atu2 And I’ve always called MLK merely a “glorified outro” on UF. ;) Apparently U2 differ with me on that one…

 via web in reply to atu2

I’m not counting Amazing Grace as a separate song, it’s only a few lines. Either a snip at One’s end or Streets’ intro.

 via web

20th is Ultra Violet…

 via web

@MickiMaynard Thanks. At Chicago 1, Streets was before Tutu, so did it close main set?

 via web in reply to MickiMaynard

Sorry, I can’t count. Streets is 19th song, not 20th.

 via web

Amazing Grace snip, then 20th song is Streets.

 via web

Will need to review earlier shows to see when the band started waving goodbye and taking a distinct break between Walk On and One.

 via web

18th is One. Looks like we’re going to need to start counting this as the encore opener…

 via web

Main set is a song short… no Pride, no NLOTH, no Unknown Caller?

 via web

16th was MLK, 17th Walk On.

 via web

MJ snip in Crazy was Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.

 via web

There was a Michael Jackson snip in Crazy. Unfortunately, don’t know which MJ song! Will get clarification later.

 via web

15th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via web

@Matkin22 Just a guess based on everything being a spot earlier - to make room for Pride?

 via web in reply to EveryBrokenWave

14th is Crazy Tonight.

 via web

Anyway, 13th is Vertigo.

 via web

Damn, looks like Pride may be done tonight. It’s missed 7 gigs. Record is missing 8 gigs. Was hoping U2 would break that.

 via web

“Looking for the face I had before the world was made” lyric from Mofo snipped at start of COBL.

 via web

Twelfth is City Of Blinding Lights.

 via web

Tenth song was Stuck In A Moment.

 via web

Eleventh song is UF. Waiting for confirmation on what was tenth…

 via web

Oh hello, New Year’s Day is ninth!

 via web

Blackbird snip at end of Beautiful Day.

 via web

Eighth is Beautiful Day. Still missing the extended intro.

 via web

Seventh is YOUR BLUE ROOM!

 via web

Think tonight’s set may very well be a Your Blue Room setlist. Cross your fingers anyway.

 via web

Sixth is Elevation.

 via web

Snip of Stand By Me at end of Still Haven’t Found.

 via web

And indeed, fifth is I Still Haven’t Found The Concise Speech I’m Looking For.

 via web

Here we go, Bono’s rambling, complimenting Muse… presumably Still Haven’t Found will be next.

 via web

Fourth is Mysterious Ways.

 via web

@brynrich Seems the Mofo soundcheck in NYC may’ve just been the techs rather than U2 themselves. Still not 100% clear.

 via web in reply to brynrich2

Third is Boots.

 via web

Only other time Magnificent has been second in the set this tour was NYC 1 on 23/09.

 via web

Second is Magnificent!

 via web

U2 open the gig with Breathe.

 via web

U2 about to take the stage in DC.

 via web

Washington DC setlist, 29/09: Today, U2 are performing in the Washington DC area, just outside of the District of Columb http://url4.eu/YHgS

 via RSS2Twitter

Imma happy for you, Kanye West, and I’m going to let you finish, but Black Eyed Peas are totally the worst opener for U2 ever.

 via web

But no way am I doing Black Eyed Peas’ sets. Sorry to the one person on earth who actually wants them to open for U2.

 via web

Muse close with Plug-in Baby. Same set as NYC 2. U2 on in ~45 mins. Not sure I’ll do Muse’s set every gig but I’m having fun for now.

 via web

5th to 7th songs in Muse’s set opening for U2: United States of Eurasia, Uprising, Starlight.

 via web

For those of you interested, more of Muse’s set, 2nd to 4th songs: Hysteria, Supermassive Black Hole, Time Is Running Out.

 via web

U2 in DC today. Opening act Muse have just begun, starting their set with Knights Of Cydonia.

 via web

Speaking of Crazy Tonight snips, Boston 1 had brief Thank You Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again. Thanks Jürgen! And for NYC 2, thanks Vinícius!

 via web

Haha, NYC 2, Crazy Tonight, near the end, Bono tries to snip Rolling Stones’ Rocks Off, but instead sings line from Primal Scream’s Rocks.

 via web

Possible bad news for Hungarian fans: Budapest gig was rumoured for early Sept 2010, but negotiations may have collapsed. Let’s hope not!

 via web

@fzotto South America is rumoured for October 2010.

 via web

Denmark, Finland, and Austria presales start TODAY: Following the 2010 tour announcement very quickly are the first Euro http://url4.eu/Xtdz

 via RSS2Twitter

On U2.com, there’s a stage diagram for Dubenhof Festival Site, Zurich. Looks like the rumoured Swiss gig may be happening…

 via web

Rumour has it that there will be a gig in Brussels on 22/09/2010.

 via web

Snippetwatch: Stand By Me at end of Still Haven’t Found in Toronto, 16/09. Added to set. Thanks @DocH32!

 via web

Turns out U2 did a fourth song on SNL off-air. It was With Or Without You.

 via web

U2 on Saturday Night Live, 26/09: Today, U2 appeared on Saturday Night Live. This is U2’s third appearance on the show; http://url4.eu/X3qz

 via RSS2Twitter

UV is played complete with steering wheel mic and laser jacket - but credits scroll and it is cut off before the end.

 via web

Third song on SNL is Ultra Violet. It has never been performed live outside of the full concert setting before.

 via web

Via @ScharffIsHere, With Or Without You was rehearsed earlier today.

 via web

@atu2 Were you able to confirm the Angel Of Harlem and Crazy Tonight soundcheck?

 via web

MOS was a somewhat shortened version, during which Bono did some ad-libbed rapped lyrics.

 via web

Second song on SNL is Moment Of Surrender. First time it has been done outside of a 360 concert.

 via web

U2 on Saturday Night Live: first song played is Breathe.

 via web

@Pflaumentoffel No, rumoured Rome gig(s) may just be before Frankfurt gig.

 via web in reply to

Rumour: Frankfurt may not be start of 2010 European leg. Rome in particular is a candidate for early August dates. We’ll see..

 via web

More NYC II snips: the Stones’ Miss You in Crazy, All You Need Is Love in Streets. Thanks Josh Y and Patrick! Mick Jagger was in the crowd.

 via web

One at NYC II had Hear Us Coming. Hopefully will have time next week to keep going with cataloguing it, maybe add it to site soon.

 via web

Speaking of more NYC II snips, here’s one: It’s Only Rock & Roll in Vertigo. Added to set.

 via web

Probably more snips and stuff to come too…

 via web

Extra NYC II snips: Stand By Me in ISHFWILF, You’ll Never Walk Alone in Walk On. Added to set. Thanks @atu2!

 via web

Today’s full set, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

 via web

That’s all for today, folks. Next: U2 on SNL 26/09, then gig in Washington DC on 29/09.

 via web

But 23rd and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender. At least U2.com were only a few minutes premature.

 via web

This reminds me of a 1st leg Vertigo gig when U2.com posted the set early: U2 were only 6 songs in, and later deviated from the printed set.

 via web

Gig’s not even over yet and U2.com has posted the set. Hahaha.

 via web

22nd is With Or Without You.

 via web

Seeing how the encore never changes, this probably means no Bad for NYC.

 via web

21st is Ultra Violet, opening the encore.

 via web

20th is Streets.

 via web

Amazing Grace snip at end of One.

 via web

Desmond Tutu’s speech, then 19th song of the night is One.

 via web

SBS had Rock The Casbah snip.

 via web

17th and 18th are MLK and Walk On.

 via web

16th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via web

15th is Crazy Tonight.

 via web

14th, naturally, is Vertigo.

 via web

Go on U2, do Mofo in full, you know it would rule…

 via web

There’s the Mofo snippet in COBL’s intro! “Looking for the face I had before the world was made.”

 via web

13th is City Of Blinding Lights.

 via web

Twelfth is The Unforgettable Fire.

 via web

He then stumbles around and finally remembers first verse… and now he’s singing the second verse again!

 via web

Haha, Bono sung the second verse first.

 via web

Eleventh is Stay.

 via web

Tenth is Until The End Of The World!

 via web

Ninth is Unknown Caller, back in the set after missing yesterday’s gig.

 via web

Rambling, as usual, leads to I Still Haven’t Found, eighth song of the night.

 via web

Bono’s rambling…

 via web

Poor North America, stuck with this fluff as a nightly staple. To think what else is in the band’s repertoire too…

 via web

Seventh is Elevation.

 via web

Naturally, this is the latest Magnificent has been in a setlist.

 via web

By the way, short snip of the Stones’ She’s A Rainbow in B Day. Well, possibly Crazy Tonight! Counting it as She’s A Rainbow for now.

 via web

Sixth is Magnificent.

 via web

MW has never been played earlier than 3rd. Only other time it was 3rd was 7 March 1992, Hampton.

 via web

Fifth is No Line On The Horizon!

 via web

Snip of Blackbird at end of Beautiful Day.

 via web

@ryr3888 Correct, Your Blue Room has only been done once in each city.

 via web in reply to AndrewWaldrop

Earliest Beautiful Day has been in the set this tour. It is played without that Celtic-y intro.

 via web

Fourth? Beautiful Day!

 via web

No MW solo, alas.

 via web

Third is… Mysterious Ways! The opening barrage of 4 NLOTH songs is now down to just two.

 via web

Points to @Matkin22 for predicting this. First time Boots is not third in the set.

 via web

Oh hello! Boots is second!

 via web

Sizeable minority of you win Predict-a-set. Maybe Magnif opening Boston II will just go down as a one-off experiment…

 via web

First up? It’s just Breathe.

 via web

Space Oddity now playing at Giants Stadium. Here we go!

 via web

If Mofo is played, my bet is it will show up in Raleigh to make up for their Popmart gig being cancelled.

 via web

OK folks, Predict-a-set time. Breathe or Magnificent to open? Hoping for Magnificent… or in a more ideal world, NLOTH.

 via web

New York II setlist, 24/09: U2 are performing their second New York area show today, across the state border at Giants S http://url4.eu/W3Do

 via RSS2Twitter

That, apparently, is all for Muse (maybe I missed something?). Now we play the waiting game for U2. Prob on-stage in ~45 mins.

 via web

OK, previous post had right set, except Uprising instead of Resistance. Now they’re doing Plug-in Baby! Ax=wishes he was there.

 via web

Don’t think I can do full Muse set today. Set inc. Time Is Running Out, US of Eurasia, maybe Resistance?, Starlight. Not 100% on order.

 via web

Muse opened with Knights Of Cydonia (yesterday’s closer). Think next 2 songs Hysteria and Supermassive Black Hole.

 via web

Alright, Muse are now on.

 via web

Opening band Muse are yet to take the stage in NYC. They were on by this time yesterday.

 via web

Today’s U2 soundcheck? Elevation… and don’t get too excited, but reportedly Mofo.

 via web

Even older snippetwatch: Psalm 116 over intro of Streets, 10 October 2001. Thanks John W.!

 via web

I actually noticed that snippet at the gig - promptly forgot by the time I got back to the hotel and put the set on the site.

 via web

Snippetwatch: Very, very brief We Are Family at the end of Streets, Dublin III. Thanks Gerard!

 via web

OK, so Bono referenced the Mofo lyric… or did he? It’s also a line of a Yeats poem. Great. Well, let’s count it as Mofo for now.

 via web

Reportedly, Bono did the Mofo snip again in COBL at NYC I. Anybody got a link to some audio/video that confirms this?

 via web

Although not in the itinerary yet, U2.com’s tour page blurb mentions Brussels along with the itinerary’s countries. Well spotted, @marekbz!

 via web

After the Russia & Turkey gigs, U2 will have played in 34 different countries. 35 if you count a Bono solo appearance in Monaco.

 via web

OK, think I’m done with stats and stuff in the 2010 European tour article: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

 via web

Love U2.com getting venue names wrong. “Stadium” in Horsens and Coimbra? They have actual names!

 via web

Still adding stats to the mainpage article, bear with me…

 via web

2010 European tourdates: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

 via web

So, U2 to play Russia and Turkey for the first time ever. Nice.

 via web

2010 European tourdates have been posted without fanfare on U2.com’s tour page. Our own article with list of dates coming soon.

 via web

Snippetwatch: Still Haven’t Found at Boston II ended with a snip of Run by Snow Patrol. Added to database.

 via web

@EdgeFest Far Far Away is by Wilco, already list it for Chicago II. No idea what the snip before B Day is at Toronto I, though…

 via web in reply to EdgeFest

Snippetwatch: Far Far Away snip at start of Beautiful Day, Boston 1. Added to set. Thanks Kristofor G.!

 via web

You’ll Never Walk Alone snip was in Walk On and some extra details have been added re: She’s The One/Desire. Thanks @atu2!

 via web

Today’s full set, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…

 via web

That’s the gig over, folks. Looking forward to tomorrow.

 via web

Despite THAT soundcheck, it looks like Bruce isn’t joining U2 onstage, and just enjoying a birthday gig from the crowd.

 via web

24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.

 via web

23rd is With Or Without You…

 via web

Getting close to the end of the gig now… will Bruce himself appear?

 via web

Encore opens with Ultra Violet.

 via web

@JRFuerst I’ll take that bet! I say this will be the 3rd 360 show at which Unknown Caller isn’t played.

 via web in reply to JRFuerst

Encore break…

 via web

All You Need Is Love snip in Streets.

 via web

I’ll claim that ten bucks now, thanks.

 via web

21st is Streets, of course.

 via web

Here’s the Amazing Grace snip.

 via web

One has Hear Us Coming.

 via web

20th is One.

 via web

Ten bucks says One/Amazing Grace snip/Streets will be next.

 via web

19th is Walk On, as you’d expect.

 via web

Bono rambling… 18th is MLK.

 via web

No snip in SBS.

 via web

@Matkin22 Couldn’t tell snips in Vertigo or Crazy, sorry.

 via web in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@dougmiestergen Croke I, Chorzow, London II all had 21-song main sets.

 via web in reply to duuuaaaane

17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via web

16th is Crazy Tonight.

 via web

15th is Vertigo.

 via web

14th is City Of Blinding Lights.

 via web

4 ATYCLB songs in one set (you know Walk On is coming). 0 from Boy, October, Pop combined all tour. Uh, U2…

 via web

13th is The Unforgettable Fire.

 via web

Twelfth is Stuck In A Moment. (They skip Unknown Caller but not this?! U2, it’s 2009, not 2001.)

 via web

Think this means NLOTH has made it in favour of Unknown Caller.

 via web

Eleventh is New Year’s Day.

 via web

At all previous 360 shows, NLOTH has been second.

 via web

Tenth is NO LINE ON THE HORIZON!

 via web

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough snippet at the end of B Day.

 via web

If they do She’s The One in full with Bruce later in the show, I’ll count Desire as the full song in sixth.

 via web

Ninth is Beautiful Day.

 via web

When I put this in the database, either She’s The One or Desire will have to be a snippet… *unsure* Probably Desire the snip?

 via web

Eighth is Your Blue Room!

 via web

Seventh is Elevation.

 via web

How to count song six? She’s The One / Desire medley, I guess.

 via web

What on earth is happening in NYC? They’ve gone into Desire now.

 via web

U2 are covering Springsteen!

 via web

All this rambling/band intro-ing indicates ISHFWILF will be fifth… and it is.

 via web

Bono rambling. RT @atu2 “Without us The Edge would still be in his bed watching The Discovery Channel.” - Bono

 via web

Out of Breathe, Magnif, Boots, and NLOTH, NLOTH got the crowd pumped the most if you ask me. Omitting it = mistake.

 via web

Mysterious Ways is fourth.

 via web

Third is Boots. NLOTH, where are you?

 via web

This is the first time all tour that NLOTH is not second song of the night.

 via web

Woah, second is Magnificent!

 via web

At least this means it isn’t the same set as last gig! Boston 1=Toronto 2; Toronto 1=Chicago 2. Bring on Magnif opening NYC 2!

 via web

Breathe is first. (Damn)

 via web

Nearly showtime… Space Oddity is playing in NYC.

 via web

Seems you folks predict Magnificent instead of Breathe opening at a ratio of 3:1. @DirettoreSabino, I’d love NLOTH to open too.

 via web

So, will Breathe or Magnificent be the opener tonight? Place your bets! (Hoping for Magnificent, personally.)
