@eddemkleetun Touche! I had happily erased all memory of Kelis opening for U2 from my mind.
Printed set from DC reveals nothing was dropped mid-show, only 22 songs were planned from the outset.
Today’s full setlist, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Well, that’s it, 22 songs. Surprised NLOTH cut. And Pride has now equalled its 2001 record of missing eight shows in a row.
22nd and probably last is Moment Of Surrender.
21st is With Or Without You.
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.
@atu2 And I’ve always called MLK merely a “glorified outro” on UF. ;) Apparently U2 differ with me on that one…
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.
20th is Ultra Violet…
@MickiMaynard Thanks. At Chicago 1, Streets was before Tutu, so did it close main set?
Sorry, I can’t count. Streets is 19th song, not 20th.
Amazing Grace snip, then 20th song is Streets.
Will need to review earlier shows to see when the band started waving goodbye and taking a distinct break between Walk On and One.
18th is One. Looks like we’re going to need to start counting this as the encore opener…
Main set is a song short… no Pride, no NLOTH, no Unknown Caller?
16th was MLK, 17th Walk On.
MJ snip in Crazy was Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.
There was a Michael Jackson snip in Crazy. Unfortunately, don’t know which MJ song! Will get clarification later.
15th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
@Matkin22 Just a guess based on everything being a spot earlier - to make room for Pride?
14th is Crazy Tonight.
Anyway, 13th is Vertigo.
Damn, looks like Pride may be done tonight. It’s missed 7 gigs. Record is missing 8 gigs. Was hoping U2 would break that.
“Looking for the face I had before the world was made” lyric from Mofo snipped at start of COBL.
Twelfth is City Of Blinding Lights.
Tenth song was Stuck In A Moment.
Eleventh song is UF. Waiting for confirmation on what was tenth…
Oh hello, New Year’s Day is ninth!
Blackbird snip at end of Beautiful Day.
Eighth is Beautiful Day. Still missing the extended intro.
Seventh is YOUR BLUE ROOM!
Think tonight’s set may very well be a Your Blue Room setlist. Cross your fingers anyway.
Sixth is Elevation.
Snip of Stand By Me at end of Still Haven’t Found.
And indeed, fifth is I Still Haven’t Found The Concise Speech I’m Looking For.
Here we go, Bono’s rambling, complimenting Muse… presumably Still Haven’t Found will be next.
Fourth is Mysterious Ways.
@brynrich Seems the Mofo soundcheck in NYC may’ve just been the techs rather than U2 themselves. Still not 100% clear.
Third is Boots.
Only other time Magnificent has been second in the set this tour was NYC 1 on 23/09.
Second is Magnificent!
U2 open the gig with Breathe.
U2 about to take the stage in DC.
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
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.
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.
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.
5th to 7th songs in Muse’s set opening for U2: United States of Eurasia, Uprising, Starlight.
For those of you interested, more of Muse’s set, 2nd to 4th songs: Hysteria, Supermassive Black Hole, Time Is Running Out.
U2 in DC today. Opening act Muse have just begun, starting their set with Knights Of Cydonia.
