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.
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.
Speaking of more NYC II snips, here’s one: It’s Only Rock & Roll in Vertigo. Added to set.
Probably more snips and stuff to come too…
Extra NYC II snips: Stand By Me in ISHFWILF, You’ll Never Walk Alone in Walk On. Added to set. Thanks @atu2!
Today’s full set, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
That’s all for today, folks. Next: U2 on SNL 26/09, then gig in Washington DC on 29/09.
But 23rd and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender. At least U2.com were only a few minutes premature.
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.
Gig’s not even over yet and U2.com has posted the set. Hahaha.
22nd is With Or Without You.
Seeing how the encore never changes, this probably means no Bad for NYC.
21st is Ultra Violet, opening the encore.
20th is Streets.
Amazing Grace snip at end of One.
Desmond Tutu’s speech, then 19th song of the night is One.
SBS had Rock The Casbah snip.
17th and 18th are MLK and Walk On.
16th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
15th is Crazy Tonight.
14th, naturally, is Vertigo.
Go on U2, do Mofo in full, you know it would rule…
There’s the Mofo snippet in COBL’s intro! “Looking for the face I had before the world was made.”
13th is City Of Blinding Lights.
Twelfth is The Unforgettable Fire.
He then stumbles around and finally remembers first verse… and now he’s singing the second verse again!
Haha, Bono sung the second verse first.
Eleventh is Stay.
Tenth is Until The End Of The World!
Ninth is Unknown Caller, back in the set after missing yesterday’s gig.
Rambling, as usual, leads to I Still Haven’t Found, eighth song of the night.
Poor North America, stuck with this fluff as a nightly staple. To think what else is in the band’s repertoire too…
Seventh is Elevation.
Naturally, this is the latest Magnificent has been in a setlist.
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.
Sixth is Magnificent.
MW has never been played earlier than 3rd. Only other time it was 3rd was 7 March 1992, Hampton.
Fifth is No Line On The Horizon!
Snip of Blackbird at end of Beautiful Day.
@ryr3888 Correct, Your Blue Room has only been done once in each city.
Earliest Beautiful Day has been in the set this tour. It is played without that Celtic-y intro.
Fourth? Beautiful Day!
No MW solo, alas.
Third is… Mysterious Ways! The opening barrage of 4 NLOTH songs is now down to just two.
Points to @Matkin22 for predicting this. First time Boots is not third in the set.
Oh hello! Boots is second!
Sizeable minority of you win Predict-a-set. Maybe Magnif opening Boston II will just go down as a one-off experiment…
First up? It’s just Breathe.
Space Oddity now playing at Giants Stadium. Here we go!
If Mofo is played, my bet is it will show up in Raleigh to make up for their Popmart gig being cancelled.
OK folks, Predict-a-set time. Breathe or Magnificent to open? Hoping for Magnificent… or in a more ideal world, NLOTH.
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
That, apparently, is all for Muse (maybe I missed something?). Now we play the waiting game for U2. Prob on-stage in ~45 mins.
OK, previous post had right set, except Uprising instead of Resistance. Now they’re doing Plug-in Baby! Ax=wishes he was there.
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.
Muse opened with Knights Of Cydonia (yesterday’s closer). Think next 2 songs Hysteria and Supermassive Black Hole.
Alright, Muse are now on.
Opening band Muse are yet to take the stage in NYC. They were on by this time yesterday.
Today’s U2 soundcheck? Elevation… and don’t get too excited, but reportedly Mofo.
