Even older snippetwatch: Psalm 116 over intro of Streets, 10 October 2001. Thanks John W.!
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.
Snippetwatch: Very, very brief We Are Family at the end of Streets, Dublin III. Thanks Gerard!
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.
Reportedly, Bono did the Mofo snip again in COBL at NYC I. Anybody got a link to some audio/video that confirms this?
Although not in the itinerary yet, U2.com’s tour page blurb mentions Brussels along with the itinerary’s countries. Well spotted, @marekbz!
After the Russia & Turkey gigs, U2 will have played in 34 different countries. 35 if you count a Bono solo appearance in Monaco.
OK, think I’m done with stats and stuff in the 2010 European tour article: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Love U2.com getting venue names wrong. “Stadium” in Horsens and Coimbra? They have actual names!
Still adding stats to the mainpage article, bear with me…
2010 European tourdates: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
So, U2 to play Russia and Turkey for the first time ever. Nice.
2010 European tourdates have been posted without fanfare on U2.com’s tour page. Our own article with list of dates coming soon.
Snippetwatch: Still Haven’t Found at Boston II ended with a snip of Run by Snow Patrol. Added to database.
@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…
Snippetwatch: Far Far Away snip at start of Beautiful Day, Boston 1. Added to set. Thanks Kristofor G.!
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!
Today’s full set, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
That’s the gig over, folks. Looking forward to tomorrow.
Despite THAT soundcheck, it looks like Bruce isn’t joining U2 onstage, and just enjoying a birthday gig from the crowd.
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
23rd is With Or Without You…
Getting close to the end of the gig now… will Bruce himself appear?
Encore opens with Ultra Violet.
@JRFuerst I’ll take that bet! I say this will be the 3rd 360 show at which Unknown Caller isn’t played.
All You Need Is Love snip in Streets.
I’ll claim that ten bucks now, thanks.
21st is Streets, of course.
Here’s the Amazing Grace snip.
One has Hear Us Coming.
20th is One.
Ten bucks says One/Amazing Grace snip/Streets will be next.
19th is Walk On, as you’d expect.
Bono rambling… 18th is MLK.
No snip in SBS.
@Matkin22 Couldn’t tell snips in Vertigo or Crazy, sorry.
@dougmiestergen Croke I, Chorzow, London II all had 21-song main sets.
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
16th is Crazy Tonight.
15th is Vertigo.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
4 ATYCLB songs in one set (you know Walk On is coming). 0 from Boy, October, Pop combined all tour. Uh, U2…
13th is The Unforgettable Fire.
Twelfth is Stuck In A Moment. (They skip Unknown Caller but not this?! U2, it’s 2009, not 2001.)
Think this means NLOTH has made it in favour of Unknown Caller.
Eleventh is New Year’s Day.
At all previous 360 shows, NLOTH has been second.
Tenth is NO LINE ON THE HORIZON!
Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough snippet at the end of B Day.
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.
Ninth is Beautiful Day.
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?
Eighth is Your Blue Room!
Seventh is Elevation.
How to count song six? She’s The One / Desire medley, I guess.
What on earth is happening in NYC? They’ve gone into Desire now.
U2 are covering Springsteen!
All this rambling/band intro-ing indicates ISHFWILF will be fifth… and it is.
Bono rambling. RT @atu2 “Without us The Edge would still be in his bed watching The Discovery Channel.” - Bono
Out of Breathe, Magnif, Boots, and NLOTH, NLOTH got the crowd pumped the most if you ask me. Omitting it = mistake.
Mysterious Ways is fourth.
Third is Boots. NLOTH, where are you?
This is the first time all tour that NLOTH is not second song of the night.
Woah, second is Magnificent!
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!
Breathe is first. (Damn)
Nearly showtime… Space Oddity is playing in NYC.
Seems you folks predict Magnificent instead of Breathe opening at a ratio of 3:1. @DirettoreSabino, I’d love NLOTH to open too.
So, will Breathe or Magnificent be the opener tonight? Place your bets! (Hoping for Magnificent, personally.)
New York I setlist, 23/09: Today, U2 are playing their first of two New York area shows, just over the state border in E http://url4.eu/VZv5
@skid63 Can’t say I’d mind if Muse were co-headliners…
Ninth and last song for Muse is Knights Of Cydonia. Now we wait for U2.
Muse snippet U2! Songs 7-8: Time Is Running Out, The Fly (snippet) / Uprising. (Hint hint, U2.)
Songs 4-6 of Muse opening set: United States Of Eurasia, Starlight, Undisclosed Desires.
@Matkin22 Dust storm missed Melbourne, thank god. Hit where I used to live in QLD. Apparently yesterday looked apocalyptic there.
I like Muse, so here’s the start of their set: Hysteria, Supermassive Black Hole, Resistance.
Muse are opening for U2 for the first time today. They took the stage within the last few minutes.
Rumours increasing in quantity re: U2 playing 2 gigs at Azteca Stadium, Mexico City in late May 2010.
RT @U2log Bruce Springsteen to appear at U2 show at Giants Stadium tonight! He soundchecked “She’s the One” before U2 soundchecked.
U2 in NYC today. Soundchecked Unknown Caller, Streets, Magnificent, Your Blue Room, aaaand … (see next tweet)
