@scatterolight I did know why I included this one ;-)
My photos taken today at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin are here: http://bit.ly/9Ei7R
They just promised to show more footage of the gig later. I should have taken more photos then.
Magnificent on MTV now.
U2 is on MTV now with One recorded earlier today.
Check our YT channel for the first videos from today: http://www.youtube.com/U…
U2 just won the Best Live Awards during the MTV European Music Awards 2009.
What a great gig. I’m really happy atm :). Got most of it on video and will upload asap. Matt
Matt was at the gig and will surely return soon with footage. I’ll leave everything in his capable hands!
I (Ax) am now off to bed - it’s stupid o’clock here in Melbourne, 5:30am.
Today’s full set and details on mainpage: http://bit.ly/z194P
MOS is done. That, apparently, is the end.
No Stay? Surprising. They soundchecked it earlier today.
Sixth song is Moment Of Surrender.
“We’ve gotta go now.” Bono gives a list of thank yous.
Vertigo count-in partially in German - “eins, zwei, drei” - then the Spanish “catorce”.
Fifth song is Vertigo.
Snippet of Blackbird at the end of B Day.
Surprisingly enough, that intro leads to Beautiful Day as the fourth song!
Oh hello, here’s the Celtic intro to Beautiful Day! This hasn’t been done since the first Boston gig, 20 September 2009.
@MickiMaynard To the best of my recollection, I think this is Jay-Z’s first appearance with U2. He has sampled SBS in his own sets though.
Get Up Stand Up snippet in SBS, Bono and Jay-Z together.
Jay-Z is guest-rapping in Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Magnificent was a short version. Third song is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
@MickiMaynard It’s being broadcast in Germany, but on a bit of a delay.
One was a bit shorter than normal. Bono didn’t do his usual shout-out of locations in Magnificent’s intro.
Second song is Magnificent.
First song is One.
Show’s starting. Bono thanks everybody for coming out in the cold.
@shkee23 The broadcast of the concert isn’t live.
Techs tuning guitars atm. 27 minutes to go.
Haha! Seconding the eeep. RT @U2log Apparently Hamish Hamilton is on stage right now. Eeeeep.
That last message was from me, Ax. I’m trying to keep myself awake here at 3:15am while Matt has a good time in Berlin.
I bet most people in the lead-up to a U2 gig listen to U2. Me? I’m enjoying blackened atmospheric folk metal demos. Mmm, incongruous.
Band doubles http://flic.kr/p/7do34f
I uploaded a YouTube video — Up close to the stage http://bit.ly/4n7Yxp
One Love http://flic.kr/p/7dnwJ5
@nielstenhave U2 are meant to be on stage at about 6:30pm Berlin time.
Soundcheck at the Brandenburg Gate: U2 will take the stage in a few hours at the Brandenburg Gate to perform a short set http://url4.eu/hRfT
I uploaded a YouTube video — U2 soundcheck http://bit.ly/4f800B
Moment Of Surrender. Band now off stage. Got all filmed in HD.
Just Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Band rehearsing. http://yfrog.com/j0pyvj
U2 just rehearsed One, Magnificent full band.
Someone has a spare A for the gig today? It’s for the first girl in line.
Ax here. Matt and I will both be covering today’s Berlin gig. He’ll be on the scene. I’m in Melbourne… gig begins at 4:30am my time. Uhoh.
@stevelar No updates on an Australian tour at this stage, unfortunately.
@EdgeFest Given they did Edmonton x2 plus Winnipeg on Popmart, I’m surprised it may just be Edmonton x1 this time.
Also, due to weaker than expected ticket sales for the first Edmonton show, a second show has apparently been scrapped.
South America was rumoured for Oct 2010. Then March rumours gained pace. Now 4 Brazil shows rumoured for Nov ’10. Wonder what’ll happen.
Some more photos from the Brandenburg gate one day before U2 play there: http://bit.ly/2YnkHv
Snippetwatch, Rock Hall gig: Vertigo had It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll. Added to set. Thanks @mduchek!
@dal975 I don’t believe that’s a snippet. It’s only one line of an improvised verse, and it’s not the exact lyric nor the same melody.
