Wow, U2.com actually got today’s setlist right!
Boston I setlist, stats, etc.: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Show’s over, folks. See you again tomorrow for Boston II. Hoping Your Blue Room makes it this time…
@germcevoy Consecutive gigs Chicago II and Toronto I also had identical sets.
Identical set to Toronto II, the previous show.
23rd and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
@comay Yep, the new “spacey” intro is a Maya Angelou poem.
22nd is With Or Without You, again as always.
Encore opener and 21st song of the night is Ultra Violet as always.
Maya Angelou encore intro (i.e. the new one).
Speaking of The Electric Co., I’d take it over either One (gladly) or Streets, heretic that I am.
Amazing Grace snip leads into Streets.
Amazing Grace snip. This was better in The Electric Co. back in the day.
One has the Hear Us Coming verse.
19th, unsurprisingly, is One.
Bishop Tutu’s speech now…
No You’ll Never Walk Alone snip at the end of Walk On.
@ritababy Heh, thanks, yes this is Ax today. :)
If Pride should crumble, or disappear out from the set, not a tear, no not I.
MLK naturally leads into Cartoon World- er, I mean Walk On in 18th.
17th is MLK. Seems to be still no Pride!
Snip of Rock The Casbah in SBS. Bono is still singing his incorrect “she really don’t like it” version.
16th is Sunday Bloody Sunday. Crazy had a snip at the end but I couldn’t quite identify it.
By the way, She Loves You brief snip at end of Vertigo.
Here we gooo… 15th is Crazy Tonight.
14th is Vertigo.
13th is City Of Blinding Lights.
Looks like no Your Blue Room tonight, even though it was soundchecked.
12th is The Unforgettable Fire.
11th is Stuck In A Moment.
Tenth is… New Year’s Day! First time it has been played at consecutive gigs on 360.
Ninth is Unknown Caller.
Stand By Me snip at the end of ISHFWILF.
Finally begin eighth song. It’s I Still Haven’t Found (the concise speech I’m looking for?).
Speechifying… rambly Bono is rambly.
@germcevoy I reckon Breathe’s long intro would sound awesome after the “let me in the sound” part of Boots.
Seventh is Elevation.
Snip of Blackbird at end of Beautiful Day.
Breathe is a weak opener. Crowds often flat until NLOTH. It’d be better later in the opening four. Say NLOTH/Boots/Breathe/Magnif.
Sixth is Beautiful Day.
Was that a very brief Norwegian Wood ref at the end of MW? Bloody hard to tell.
U2 slowly changing the static opening 6. 6th changed in Paris, 5th in Toronto… now c’mon, U2, change to a good opener!
Fifth is … Mysterious Ways!
Fourth is Magnificent.
Third is Boots.
Second is NLOTH.
First song of the night is (what else?) Breathe.
Here we go. Space Oddity playing in Boston.
Crowd’s reportedly a bit restless. Band was meant to be on by now.
U2 taking their time in Boston, it seems.
@atu2 That’ll just jinx things and the band will deviate from the set. ;)
Boston I setlist, 20/09: Today, U2 are playing the first of two concerts in the Boston area. It is being held at Gillet http://url4.eu/U4M6
Snow Patrol are done. Now waiting for U2.
In Boston, Snow Patrol are warming up the audience for U2 right now.
Back to Toronto 16/09: Crazy Tonight had a snippet of Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough. Added to set. Thanks Trey L.!
U2 in Boston today. Soundchecked earlier: Elevation, Your Blue Room, Beautiful Day intro.
