Now here’s a snippetwatch. 1984-11-02, London - Bad has Elvis Presley And America! Thanks James H.!
Vertigo today had a snippet of Rock ‘n’ Roll High School by the Ramones. Thanks Steve for pointing it out!
Today’s full set, stats, etc.: http://bit.ly/481pbT
Yep, that’s all. Springsteen did 17 song set inc. encore last night, but it’s just ~10 (depending on how you count things!) for U2.
@DocH32 Not sure if MW was even complete! It segued into Where Is The Love, presumably no slide solo.
Show might be over…
Now, the spoiler set posted earlier ended with Beautiful Day. Is this it, then? Or will there be more…?
@EdgeFest Jagger and Springsteen may not be second raters, but BEP, well…
U2 now doing Beautiful Day. No guests on stage for this.
And now the band are doing Stuck In A Moment with Mick Jagger.
OK, I’m going to count One as a snippet of Where Is The Love until proven otherwise.
Fergie’s still on for Gimme Shelter, by the way.
One might have just been a snippet in Where Is The Love… not entirely clear.
And now Mick Jagger has come out to join U2 for Gimme Shelter!
Speaking of Where Is The Love, it has segued into One. WTF.
Where Is The Love totally needs a Love And Peace Or Else snippet.
MW segues into Where Is The Love with the Black Eyed Peas.
Sixth is Mysterious Ways.
@U2_News Hilarious! Though I’m not counting Because The Night 3 times in the set since the “third” time was just the intro.
As no surprise to anybody, Bono preceded I Still Haven’t Found with a speech.
Now that they’ve got Because The Night down, fifth is I Still Haven’t Found with Bruce. Remind anybody of this?: http://ow.ly/xOqP
Guess I’ll add Because The Night to the set as both song three and four then!
RT @ndmusic Bono: “How about one more time?” They do “Because the Night” over to fix a Patti Smith mistake and then do the open a 3rd time
Because The Night has been repeated, due to missed cues and problems in the first attempt.
Bono has previously performed Because The Night as a guest at a Bruce Springsteen gig, 2002-11-23.
Third is Because The Night with Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith!
Second is Magnificent.
First song of the night is Vertigo.
U2 will be on very soon…
@nielstenhave Not sure yet. Will post if there is.
@RyanCJW I was just about to say you might want to redirect it. ;)
Metallica also covered Queen’s Stone Cold Crazy, and closed with Enter Sandman. U2 next!
@Matkin22 I’d never buy an ATYCLB remaster anyway! Not unless they changed the tracklist to TGBHF x11.
…then Ray Davies for You Really Got Me and All Day And All Of The Night. Quite the celebration for the Rock Hall.
Metallica have brought the special guests. Sweet Jane and White Light/White Heat with Lou Reed, Iron Man and Paranoid with Ozzy Osbourne…
@Matkin22 Didn’t an early version of the song have a Jagger vocal? Makes sense they’d do it I suppose, but urgh.
@Matkin22 I don’t believe it. Bah.
@Matkin22 Disown them and turn this into Axver’sAlternateRealityU2Gigs where they play Heartland live often. ;)
Then Metallica do Sweet Jane with Lou Reed! Wow.
Metallica may’ve opened with For Whom The Bell Tolls, not sure if it was before or after One. Then Bob Seger’s Turn The Page.
At the Rock Hall gig, Jeff Beck is done, Metallica on now. Opened with One, but not U2’s One. ;) U2 will follow them…
And, of course, thanks to @u2start for putting me onto the snip in the first place!
Thanks to Adrian for linking me to Brussels audio, I’ve confirmed Native Son snip by Edge in Vertigo on 2005-06-10. Set: http://ow.ly/xN7W
At the Rock Hall, Jeff Beck has covered People Get Ready with Sting. No Bono? I’m stunned he resisted running out for this number!
I’d pay good money to see U2 and Metallica join forces and play a medley of their respective songs titled One.
Metallica still to come, then U2 close out the night.
Aretha Franklin Rock Hall set: Baby I Love You, Chain Of Fools (with Annie Lennox), New York New York, Think (with Lenny Kravitz), Respect.
@atu2 Hey - ask about a RAH remaster/Lovetown DVD. We know they have footage of 17, 18, 19 November 1989, Sydney.
@atu2 I want to know why U2 never answers Bono’s “what time is it in the world?” with 11 O’clock Tick Tock…
@Matkin22 Not yet… turns out I don’t actually have the bootleg of the show, for one thing.
@atu2 I’ve a whole boatload of setlist questions! And the obligatory “when are they coming to Australia?”
I’m drafting a U2gigs mainpage article… according to my typos, U2 are playing at the Rock “Hall Of Game”.
At the Rock Hall 25th right now, Aretha Franklin is performing.
I suspect U2 rehearsed Gimme Shelter with Mick Jagger. They soundchecked it in Vancouver.
Patti Smith at one point joined U2 and Bruce. Mick Jagger rehearsed with U2. Songs unknown for both.
U2 and Bruce Springsteen rehearsed I Still Haven’t Found. U2 and the Black Eyed Peas rehearsed Where Is The Love.
Don’t forget - U2 play Rock Hall Of Fame 25th anniversary gig at Madison Square Gardens in two days, Friday the 30th!
Today’s full setlist: http://bit.ly/1ls9pi
That’s all for today, folks, and that’s all for 360 for the year too. Not sure quite how I feel really. From mid-June to now, been a blast.
25th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
24th is With Or Without You.
Should note that UV had the W. H. Auden poem as the intro, not the Zoobaby. Token variation taken to extremes!
23rd is Ultra Violet.
Second encore break, meaning last likely chance of a change is gone. I was hoping Bad would follow Streets to mark last gig of the leg.
@xtfr Most welcome! Glad you enjoyed. It’s going to be weird not having any full tour gigs to cover for a good few months.
One has the Hear Us Coming verse, then the Amazing Grace snippet leads into…
Desmond Tutu’s speech … leeeaaads … into! ONE! ONE! song number twenty-ONE!
First encore break. Thanks to @EdgeFest for the extra details!
Walk On has the You’ll Never Walk Alone snip.
@U2start Huh, cool. Once I get the chance to hear it for myself and confirm, I’ll add it to the database.
20th is Walk On.
@U2start I’ll have to add this to the set. Start of the second Vertigo of the night, I assume?
Via @EdgeFest, Crazy Tonight had Two Tribes snip.
19th is MLK.
18th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
@Hoosier2012 Native Son is one of my five or six favourite U2 songs of the 2000s. Vertigo? Could hardly care less.
@U2start I seem to have somehow missed that!
17th is Crazy Tonight.
@Hoosier2012 On the Vertigo Tour when they did Vertigo x2, one of them should’ve actually been Native Son. That would’ve made it all OK.
@jamiemcderment Heh, no problem, the names ARE awkwardly similar!
16th is Native Son- nah, still only Vertigo.
@jamiemcderment Actually, COBL video was filmed at GM Place arena in Vancouver, not BC Place stadium.
@xtfr Haha, good call.
15th is City Of Blinding Lights.
14th is The Unforgettable Fire
RT @EdgeFest OMG someone just jumped on stage at the back and got tackled instantly by 10 security guys, band didn’t even notice.
13th is Until The End Of The World.
@U2start Yeah, assuming no changes, Happy Birthday will bump this to 25 songs… that really doesn’t feel right, but oh well.
@jpstarkey I’ve considered just noting Happy Birthday in the comments, but keeping it in the set makes it searchable, so… *shrug*
@jamiemcderment Seems like it’s pretty good!
12th is Unknown Caller. Static set or no static set, I’m glad this has returned.
@U2start Psh, it was just a suggestion. ;) (I sometimes feel iffy counting Happy B’day separately, but… what else to do with it, y’know?)
11th is… In A Little While. Damn, no setlist changes.
@Matkin22 I hate IALW studio but it’s OK live. Stuck is one of my least favourite U2 songs ever, no matter how it’s done.
@U2start You’re not including Happy Birthday in the set? It was done separately from the other songs, so I think it should be counted.
Really hoping U2 surprise us and play something other than IALW next. YBR? Party Girl for Larry’s upcoming birthday?
@Matkin22 I miss the European gigs where they only did 2 ATYCLB songs. That’s all that’s necessary.
Tenth is Elevation.
@RangerPete61 Honestly not sure. Don’t think the same song has always preceded Space Oddity either; definitely differed between shows I saw.
@Matkin22 Stuck in an Elevation Tour moment!
Ninth is No Line On The Horizon.
Next song is Stuck In A Moment.
RT @EdgeFest Bill Gates here tonight and Bono just sang Happy Birthday to him.
Stand By Me snip at the end of Still Haven’t Found.
U2 have static sets, I have static jokes… see, it makes perfect sense.
Bono, of course, still can’t find the concise speech he’s looking for. (I still can’t find a new joke to replace this one, sorry.)
Sixth is I Still Haven’t Found.
Via @EdgeFest, Beautiful Day has the Blackbird snip at the end.
@Angela_Holtzen Plus the world needs to be exposed to the awesomeness of YBR!
@Angela_Holtzen Breathe my least favourite U2 opener ever (not hyperbole; I did a ranking). Crowd often seems bored after 3 mins of Breathe.
Fifth is Beautiful Day.
@Angela_Holtzen I’m genuinely surprised they filmed IALW instead of YBR. We have IALW on the Boston DVD already! YBR = left out in the cold.
Fourth is Mysterious Ways.
@Drea104 Party Girl in honour of Larry’s upcoming birthday would be a treat! But they haven’t done it since 07/07…
Third is Magnificent.
@jpstarkey How I wish they’d stuck with it… or given NLOTH a chance, instead of shunting it later. It needs to be early in the set!
Second is Boots.
@Angela_Holtzen I was especially disappointed Pasadena didn’t get YBR, as I’d have loved that to have been filmed.
Quietly hoping tonight’s set will require more than just a copy-and-paste job from the last 4 shows.
You’ll be stunned to learn the first song of the set is… Breathe!
Intro music playing in Vancouver right now.
@damiankindler More like one possibility, and one possibility only…
@cgpeterson923 I think they are a very poor choice to open a U2 concert. Plus I simply find their music insufferable.
@Matkin22 Crew soundchecks aren’t always indicative… e.g. on Popmart, Dallas soundchecked Zoo Station even though U2 weren’t playing it.
@Matkin22 25/10? Pretty sure that was the crew. U2 did their own soundcheck later.
@Matkin22 I doubt the set will change much, but maybe a little something special for the last show. Bad?
Black Eyed Peas just finished their final opening set for U2 (5 opening sets too many). Now we wait for the band…
@Tvbona No, haven’t seen any rumours re: 2010 openers. Wonder how many other bands have planned this far in advance anyway!
Hi folks, Ax here for last 360 Tour gig of 2009! 2nd leg ends in Vancouver today. Black Eyed Peas on at the moment.
Finally got 2 tickets. Robbie Williams for free last week; U2 for free next week. Berlin is the place to be this time around. Matt
U2’s EMA performance seems to be sold out for the moment. Got no tickets myself due to the more than crappy Eventim.de system. Matt
@eventimblog Would be great if the site would work for at least one sale this year … at the moment it does not. Same procedure as usual.
U2 to perform in front of the Brandenburg Gate: Just after the band wrap up the 360° Tour for 2009, they are heading to http://url4.eu/gEkH
Guess what. U2 are performing in front of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate as part of MTV’s Europe Music Awards on 5 November.
Two concerts for Spain in 2010: At present, just one Spanish concert has been confirmed for 2010: 29 September 2010 in S http://url4.eu/fuq0
Snippetwatch, 2001-02-26: One had Walking Away and Walk On; UTEOTW had Two Tribes. Thanks @Matkin22!
@BonoVoxGS The 2009 European leg? No shows were shot for DVD.
@wind_mill_lane …after all, they can’t stay in North America much longer as the stage needs to get to Europe by early August.
@wind_mill_lane There have been some Boston rumours, but I don’t see where it’s meant to fit into this announced schedule…
OK folks, rumours getting stronger that South American gigs will take place in 2010 before the just-announced North American dates.
@greety The MOS “rap” is Bono’s original lyrics as far as I know. Not sure how many gigs have had it.
2010 North American tour dates announced: Right as the Los Angeles concert finished today, U2’s 2010 North American tour http://url4.eu/eTHt
I’ve updated the 2010 North American tour announcement article with some stats and stuff: http://bit.ly/239crn
Haha, U2.com’s tour page still claims the Athens and Istanbul presales end on “31 November”, not 31 October.
Presales for Oakland, Edmonton, and Toronto begin on TUESDAY! Yes, this Tuesday, 27 October.
The Denver gig will go on sale on 6 November.
The Oakland, Toronto, and Edmonton gigs go on sale on 2 November!
Here we go, 2010 North American tour dates: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
And guess what? 2010 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED. I’ll have them on U2gigs as soon as physically possible!
And that’s the show for tonight, folks. YouTube did a damn good job on the broadcast.
24th and presumably last song is Moment Of Surrender.
With Or Without You does not have Shine Like Stars verse. It’s sadly only been done twice this tour.
23rd is With Or Without You.
And here it is: 22nd is Ultra Violet.
Here’s the Zoobaby intro. This will lead into Ultra Violet.
@BonoVoxGS Yeah, Pride has missed the last 17 shows - it’s a record. Personally, I think it never sounded as good live as it did in studio.
Second encore break now.
Streets did not have the All You Need Is Love snippet today.
@skid63 Not sure if you mean One or Amazing Grace… both leave me cold. Except the Hear Us Coming verse, which is good.
21st is Where The Streets Have No Name.
Now the Amazing Grace snippet…
One has the Hear Us Coming verse.
@Matkin22 I bloody hope they give Drowning Man a run next year. I’m surprised White As Snow didn’t crop up in Stuck’s setlist spot.
20th song, first of encore, is One.
Here’s Desmond Tutu and his speech. He’s on fire more than Edge tonight. ;)
Time for the first encore break.
You’ll Never Walk Alone snippet at the end of Walk On.
19th is Walk On.
@Matkin22 Yep! Though I remain curious about that acoustic MW they rehearsed… it’d beat the neutered electric version they’re doing now.
Bono’s speechifying about Aung San Suu Kyi. 18th is MLK.
No snip in the middle of SBS. This song really sounds so much better this tour - kills the versions on the last two tours.
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Two Tribes snip at the end of Crazy.
To me, UF and Crazy Tonight are the two truly great live songs of the 360 Tour.
Huh, no snip at the start of Crazy Tonight.
Here we goooo. 16th is Crazily Awesome Tonight.
Vertigo has a snip of It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll by the Rolling Stones.
15th is Vertigo.
@RangerPete61 They dropped Pride after the 1st Chicago show I think because they’d run out of passion for it and mediocre crowd response.
Bono didn’t snippet a lyric from Mofo over COBL’s intro today, alas.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
13th is The Unforgettable Fire. :fuckyeah: Volume goes uuup.
@Hoosier2012 IALW is on the Elevation Boston DVD.
12th is Until The End Of The World.
Wish they’d done Your Blue Room instead of IALW. We already have IALW on DVD. Plus, Your Blue Room is sheer awesome.
Eleventh is Unknown Caller.
Edge, if you’re going to play the Explorer, please rock it out with some 11 O’clock Tick Tock, not IALW.
Tenth is In A Little While.
@wowhorse I had it on the speakers, sounded no different to other versions this tour (though admittedly I was in the next room).
@wind_mill_lane It was. ;) They did both remix AND normal versions in Barcelona, 2 July 2009.
Ninth is Elevation.
@atu2 I’d agree with you if it weren’t for Crazy Tonight’s sheer awesomeness.
NLOTH is a bloody great song. Wish it was the opener.
Back in time (with a choc muffin, aw yeah) for No Line On The Horizon in eighth.
