Full Turin setlist, statistics, etc.: http://u2.gs/7V
@wind_mill_lane I love the song and it sounded different to me today (Matt)
Btw, to me Bono seems fitter than ever. Wait for HMTMKMKM video. Good show with potential for coming gigs.
That’s the end of the gig. I’m revising mainpage article now; Matt will be back soon with photos/videos. Patience, please. :)
For the record, Walk On had You’ll Never Walk Alone snippet, and Streets intro had Amazing Grace snippet.
24th and probably last is Moment Of Surrender.
The addition of HMTMKMKM considerably improves the 360 set, if you ask me (Ax). Stage demands songs like it.
WOWY is 23rd song of the night, for the record. Looks like show’s nearing its end.
Oh hell YES.
22nd song is… HOLD ME, THRILL ME, KISS ME, KILL ME! First time since 21 March 1998!
Encore break. Will HMTMKMKM return? It’s been 12 years too many since U2 last played it live.
@U2start Oh damn, you spotted me. ;)
21st is Where The Streets Have No Name.
Tutu video, 20th song is One.
19th is Walk On. Bet nobody saw that coming. ;)
18th is MLK.
@U2start It’s possible, though HMTMKMKM sounded more ready than the 2 new songs!
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Now, U2, just play Gone and Mofo live. They’ll set the place alight. Go on go on go on go on go on. ;)
Discotheque snippet was at start of Crazy Tonight, for the record.
Hooray for some Pop representation! I’ll take what I can get, even if it is a mere snippet…
16th is Crazy Tonight with Discotheque snippet.
15th is Vertigo. Set looking very familiar now.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
@U2start Well, maaaybe if the rest of the set had the Boy and UF albums in full or something!
@U2start No set with Ultra Violet in it can possibly be considered a classic in my view. ;)
Security alert as girl tries to climb bridge. Got some killer photo w/ Bono right above me.
13th is The Unforgettable Fire, awww yeah.
Really don’t like the idea of UTEOTW after Miss S but it was a bit more cohesive than I expected.
Miss Sarajevo. http://u2.gs/82
12th song is Until The End Of The World.
Miss Sarajevo w/ some Italian lyrics.
IALW had the rocketship verse done by the astronauts. Ruined the only good part of the song, if you ask me.
@atu2 IALW did disappear for heaps of last year though…
Can confirm new slow song is North Star after this Glastonbury.
Tour debut of Miss Sarajevo! Last performed on 9 Dec ’06 in Hawaii.
Last time U2 debuted 2 unreleased songs at the one show? TV Gaga, of all shows! My favourite U2 gig. http://u2.gs/7Z
Next song is In A Little While. More ATYCLB than anything so far.
The last time U2 played an unreleased song live was 6 August 2001: http://u2.gs/7Y
U2gigs live from Turin http://u2.gs/live
Back to songs we know now: Elevation.
Remember, we have the full set live as it happens in this article: http://u2.gs/7V
By “this is Glastonbury”, that’s what Bono said as it began, i.e. the title is Glastonbury, not This Is Glastonbury. just clarifying.
Next is ANOTHER new song. Bono: “This is Glastonbury.” Take it that’s the title then!
RT @U2start Poor internet. As soon as somebody tweets a feed it dies.
North Star is the slow new song U2 have rehearsed lately.
Next is new song called NORTH STAR.
For now, U2gigs will count Stingray Guitar (awesome title!) as separate track. May worry more about this after gig when there’s time! ;)
Next song is I Still Haven’t Found. (Ax’s commentary: ugh.)
Via @atu2 printed set titles new intro as “Return Of The Stingray Guitar Intro”.
My Sweet Lord snippet in MW.
@atu2 See, I’d count it… intros on albums count as separately indexed tracks after all. Also, thanks for title!
To those who asked: yes, the New Intro was live.
Next song is Mysterious Ways.
Seems opinion divided on whether to count New Intro or BD as opener. New Intro is short but does seem independent of BD as a song.
Next song is Boots.
Man, the demand for streams is just hammering every single one …
So, do we count BD as the opener, or the as-yet-untitled New Intro as a separate track?
Bono: “What time is it in the world?” Time for Magnificent.
After the New Intro, U2 go into Beautiful Day.
new one live
Here we go! David Bowie’s Space Oddity is cranking over the PA.
bad connection but i do what i can
Looks like most of you are with me re: a new song. Let’s hope it happens! Aaaalmost showtime now …
So, who thinks U2 will actually debut a brand new song tonight? Not getting hopes up, but quietly optimistic they’ll do Glasto song.
Adams tech. http://u2.gs/7W
This article will be updated with the Turin setlist live, in addition to our live tweets: http://u2.gs/7V
Ax here, signing in at all too early an hour in Australia & jealous of Matt in Turin. Kasabian just finished opening set. Not long to go!
Kasabian on Stage now. http://u2.gs/7R
Whoops, FOS still open for us.
The Claw. http://u2.gs/7G
Official merchandise. http://u2.gs/7F
@diederdevries you’re right but probably they meant Macphisto ;-)
We now joined the queue … about 400m from gate. May take a while…
Macphisto is back … at least at fake merchandise stands. http://u2.gs/7E
Bono, Gaza needs you sign. http://u2.gs/7D
hope you liked this … just testing. Matt
U2gigs live from Turin http://moi.st/56b33
Gates open. http://u2.gs/7C
Gates are now open.
… most likely not band/Edge. Sounds more like techs.
Sound coming out of the stadium … beginning of COBL now.
Looks like the Police acted against the fake merchandise. More than 20 stands just rolled away … http://u2.gs/7B
@Merken1980 Yes, will do this later inside. No official stuff outside so far.
End of GA line. Looks like enough people to fill the FOS area already. http://u2.gs/7A
Fake merchandise beside GA queue. http://u2.gs/7z
@sorenamstrup Matt will indeed be filming again this year. :)
My (Ax’s) night work on site is done. Matt’s in Turin. I’ll be back in just over 6h at arse o’clock Aussie time to help cover opening night.
