That’s the end of MOS, and the end of the show for another night. Big thanks to @U2tour for their live stream!
@zoostationsf You are so on! I’ve been through SF airport, and wish I’d had a chance to actually see the city. Big regret that I couldn’t.
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
@U2log Haha, good call!
Man, if crowds keep chanting WOWY like this, they’re never going to drop/improve it, no matter how weak it sounds nowadays.
No, we won’t shine like stars in the Seville night tonight. Ah well…
23rd is With Or Without You. Fingers crossed for Shine Like Stars.
@fuzzyness Can’t wait for hundreds of people in 2020 to believe it actually happened. ;)
@srj68 Hehe. He totally should one day when they play HMTMKMKM.
@ClaytonsKitten Haha I’m sure! The responses I’ve got have cracked me up.
@mduchek I’m constantly amused by Aussie Rules football team songs. Most are horrendous!
@Almond87 I just love the last name of the bloke you’ve got in place of Leon! Goldsack, haha.
22nd is Ultra Violet, back after missing the last 2 shows.
@U2log I’d make up something for you, but someone’ll believe it and in ten years, there’ll be stories of “ZOMG Edge wore Batman suit!”
Brief snip of All You Need Is Love in Streets.
@JoeFahey93 Carn the mighty Bombers- oh wait. :(
@Almond87 How’s the nerves? Getting pumped for tomorrow? I can’t wait.
Amazing Grace snip leads into 21st song, Streets.
Hey, One has the Hear Us Coming verse today. Cool.
@mduchek Agreed! So glad that at least Stuck In A Moment hasn’t been done this year.
At the 1st Coimbra gig, Bono better replace You’ll Never Walk Alone with When The Saints Go Marching In. Australians know what I mean.
20th song, first of encore, is One.
@mduchek In A Little While, One, and… only three? Guess WOWY sounds worse than ISHFWILF nowadays, so it can go.
@llootsteen39 Probably in U2’s minds, NYD rather than IWF and NS rather than SE is a drastic change… :|
@Almond87 “I want to run, I want to hide from good old Collingwood forever”? ;)
Walk On ends with a snippet of Oops I Did It Agai- uh, actually, You’ll Never Walk Alone.
@alljokesmustgo Not sure, don’t think so. Possibly early on the UF Tour? Been ages since I listened to 1984 bootlegs.
Yep, there’s Walk On. And here’s my usual joke of “can’t believe it’s not One Minute Warning!”
18th is MLK. Might as well call Walk On at 19th now too.
@u2tourZargor That looks pretty plausible, thanks!
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
The Life During Wartime snip the other day during Crazy’s outro was cool… would love that to be done again.
Relax snippeted again. Then Two Tribes. No hot Discotheque snippetry action.
C’mon U2, let’s hear the Discotheque snippet. Please?
@ClaytonsKitten Two Tribes only has “go to war”, not the “I don’t want to” part.
And there’s that “I don’t want to go to war” thing that I don’t think we ever identified for sure.
16th is Crazy Tonight, beginning with a Relax snippet.
I missed the snip at the end of Vertigo, ugh. Was it a Ramones song, maybe?
15th is Vertigo.
Shall we play trivia again? U2’s first concert in Spain was on which tour? I’ll post the answer during Vertigo.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
13th of course is Miss Sarajevo.
@casimiro19 No Bad. :( Maybe Coimbra 2 will get lucky…
@hedygabriel You may be joking, but I’m not, heh. Mainly listening now for the snippets.
12th is In A Little While.
Bono gets crowd to sing Happy Birthday for his brother Norman. Not putting it in set: didn’t sound like Bono sung it.
@hedygabriel So do I. ;)
Eleventh is Mercy. Funny how it’s become a regular! Who would’ve predicted that even a month ago?
Though U2 doing S Eyes in San Seb keeps a pattern going: S Eyes is played every 2nd tour. JT, not LTown, ZooTV, not Pop, Elev, not V, 360.
Tenth is… North Star. No Spanish Eyes. :(
ISHFWILF ends with a snippet of Many Rivers To Cross.
There is a spoiler out there, but for those who haven’t looked at it, place your bets: Spanish Eyes next, yes/no?
And there you go, ninth is I Still Haven’t Found.
@U2log Yeah, and having UTEOTW after Elevation really just proves that perfectly.
Bono’s speechifying… you know that means ISHFWILF is surely next. Bono says U2 are having a love affair with Spain.
Snippet of Anthem by Leonard Cohen in UTEOTW.
Such a relief to hear a good song after Elevation that I lost the ability to count. ;)
Sorry, I meant UTEOTW is eighth.
Ninth is Until The End Of The World.
Seventh is Elevation.
My Sweet Lord snip in MW.
Sixth is Mysterious Ways.
@U2log Was it Andalusia?
And fifth is Magnificent.
This stream is proving to me that Boots would be improved if someone did a noise pop cover of it, a la Black Tambourine or Bailter Space.
Fourth is Get On Your Boots.
Out of U2’s 10 shows in September, this is just the 3rd time NYD has been played. IWF has been favoured by the band lately.
Here’s our mainpage article where the full setlist is being posted live: http://u2.gs/gp
Third is New Year’s Day, reclaiming the setlist spot from I Will Follow.
Second is Beautiful Day.
We’re go in Seville. Stingray Guitar is the opener, naturally.
@xalira Damnit! :(
I’ve no idea if anybody is doing a stream for today’s show. Here’s hoping Spanish Eyes stays in the set!
Interpol are on stage now, so U2 won’t be on for a bit yet.
Hi folks, Ax here. Neither of us can be in Seville today, unfortunately. But will try to bring you as much coverage as usual!
Photos of the stage under construction in Coimbra: http://u2.gs/gn
@atu2 I’m honestly dubious about counting this even if it is “private”. I can see the 1st being “shiny”, but I’d swear 2nd is “private”.
Opening acts for 2011 shows. U2.com article: http://u2.gs/gm
@atu2 Sounds like “private dancer” to me, moreso the 2nd time he says it…
San Seb Snippetwatch: Vertigo had Show Me The Way at the end. Thanks @shkee23! This song, U2 performed at their 1st gig in Oct ’76.
@SeattleB I’m sure then you understand why I moved to Melbourne! Love it even more than my hometown of Wellington, NZ (but only just).
@SeattleB I’m only going to the two shows in Melbourne. Wanted to go to Auckland, but ironically we have a friend from NZ visiting then!
San Sebastian was my last show for about 2 weeks. Next and last one this year will be Rome.
Ax just chiming in here to say I’m loving the Spanish Eyes video. More of this please, U2. Awesome stuff. Wey hey hey!
@LarissaU2 just by me.
@U2log Awesome! Can’t wait to see them live in December. Now they’d be a sweet opener for U2…
This is Ax, signing off for now, stoked that Spanish Eyes was played. One of my top 20 U2 songs. Can’t wait for Matt’s video!
@LarissaU2 Matt means by himself. :) Might as well be pro-shot…!
We have to go all the way around now. Btw, Spanish Eyes has been filmed. Matt
Here you go, full San Sebastian setlist and info: http://u2.gs/gb
Little bad organization now. Everyone parks behind stadium but we can’t get there due to the stage load out. May take some time … Matt
That’s all for today, folks. Updating mainpage article now.
@wxander Haha, the feed I’m following has a comment at the side, “what band is this?” Oh dear.
Bono thanks the audience, acknowledges that the band has been going 34 years as of yesterday.
24th and presumably last song of the night is Moment Of Surrender.
@llootsteen39 If they do SE twice, it’ll be the first time it has been played twice on one tour since JT!
@Matkin22 Hahaha, don’t make me record my own metal cover of WOWY. ;)
@llootsteen39 Probably quite similar. Maybe NYD for IWF, UV for HMTM. Hopefully Spanish Eyes sticks around.
23rd is With Or Without You.
I cannot fathom how it took U2 so long to bring this scorching rocker back to the set.
Oh YES! 22nd is Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.
@SeattleB Me too! Such a fucking amazing live track, it needs to come back.
Batman was on the setlist seen earlier ;-)
Batman time. http://u2.gs/gd
Now for the usual guessing game: HMTMKMKM or UV? I’m picking UV tonight, since HMTM was done last show.
@SeattleB Dead certain, and amazingly, they didn’t play Cartoon World or Dirty Day either!
Amazing Grace snippet leads into 21st song of the night, Streets.
Since when do we have trabants on screen during One? Noticed this for the first time right now. Matt
This means that One is, as usual, the 20th song of the night.
So here we go, setlist thus far, confirmed and full: http://u2.gs/gb
Matt has confirmed that MERCY WAS AFTER SPANISH EYES earlier in the main set.
First song of the encore is One.
Desmond Tutu’s speech now. Bet you know what song’s next.
@llootsteen39 Haha thanks. Now here’s Desmond Tutu and all I can hear is the Late Show.
Walk On ends with snip of You’ll Never Walk Alone. Oh go on Bono, one night just do Come On Eileen there instead. Go on go on go on.
In the shock of the century, MLK is followed by Walk On rather than Stories For Boys! ;)
Alas, it’s MLK rather than MOTD after SBS.
Please, U2, bring back Mothers Of The Disappeared next.
@Matkin22 MLK probably. :( You know which one I want…
So, multiple people think they heard It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll as the Vertigo snippet, but nobody’s sure. Will wait for recording to confirm.
Sunday Bloody Sunday’s back after being usurped by Pride at Brussels 2.
@U2log Thought there might be. He was also doing the “ooh oh-oh oh” from Vertigo over Crazy’s intro.
Relax snippet in Crazy Tonight.
@U2log Seems likely. Hope we get a recording soon to confirm.
@jerruin There has been a rumour of a gig in Guadalajara but no idea if it’s from a reliable source.
No bloody idea what Bono snippeted at the end of Vertigo. Now onto Crazy Tonight.
And here comes Vertigo. 14th or 15th or something in the set.
@u2tourZargor Can you confirm there were no other songs between Spanish Eyes and IALW?
Besides Matt’s attempts to get a stream going, there’s this one too: http://u2.gs/gc
OK, here’s the set as best we know it so far: http://u2.gs/gb
Band are onto COBL now.
OK, apparently Every Breaking Wave has NOT been played after all. This is getting just a bit of a pain.
So thrilled they played Spanish Eyes. WEY HEY HEY! Hope it sticks around for Seville.
Stream always crashes. Sorry. Matt
IALW segues into Miss Sarajevo.
@u2gigs nope. No EBW. Matt
Every Breaking Wave has also been played according to @U2start.
And the band are up to In A Little While. As for the rest of the set between Elevation and IALW? Unknown as yet.
So, SPANISH EYES has been performed for the first time since 8 August 2001, only its 16th performance ever.
Great full band Spanish Eyes. Matt
@SeattleB Really hope Matt can make something happen for the surprise song!
Sorry about this happening again, folks. Not a whole lot we can do… we’ll keep you updated as best we can.
Looks like it’s just business as usual and Magnif was AFTER Boots, not before.
Revised order should be: Stingray, BD, IWF, Magnif, Boots, MW, Elevation. Not confirmed that Magnif/Boots weren’t other way around though.
OK, looks like this is another gig with poor mobile communication networks and hence a confused setlist order.
IWF after BD. MW and now Elevation.
@U2start Or spoiler song is taking the place of an unreleased song.
@U2start As usual? Magnif is usually fifth, not third. Wonder what’s happened to IWF/NYD.
Oho, third was Magnificent! Thanks @U2tour.
So, Boots is fourth, no idea what was third yet.
Here is the mainpage article where I will post full set live (and the setlist spoiler is hidden waaay down the bottom): http://u2.gs/gb
We are go in San Sebastian! Stingray Guitar and Beautiful Day to open.
@SeattleB Nope, late start today, 10pm local time apparently. Which should be top of the hour…
@Wouterkaas Yep! Read the show’s comments… the song that debuted at that gig is the song after ISHFWILF today.
Data network down in San Sebastian. Matt
@SeattleB Honestly don’t know; usually it isn’t until the show begins that we know if the network’s gonna cope or not.
@SeattleB Never fear! I hated spoilers back before the days of running live setlists, so I’m always hesitant to spoil.
Now let’s just hope there are no last-minute or on-stage setlist changes…! Before you ask, I don’t know any other setlist spoilers.
SPOILER: The song after ISHFWILF debuted live at this gig: http://u2.gs/g9 (do NOT click the link if you want to avoid spoilers!)
Hi folks, Ax here. I know the song after ISHFWILF - but shall I spoil you folks? ;)
@Axver I think at least one hour early. Matt
@Wouterkaas Yes, I think around 10pm.
@U2start another one.
Written … damn auto correction.
U2start Some (probably crew) soundchecking in Spain, the usual: City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo and Moment of Surrender.
@pigama6 No disputing that (was there at Boston ’05 when it was resurrected), but if a snippet’s all we can get, I’ll take it!
Also, I (Ax) owe replies to a few people who’ve submitted stuff to the site. If you see this: sorry, been so busy, will reply soon!
It’d be nice if Bono would snippet his own rain lyrics. Summer Rain’s obvious, but also lines in RTSS, One Tree Hill, WGRYWH, IGWSHA, etc.
So, what’s the betting San Sebastian will become yet another gig with 3x of Snippeting In The Rain?
@U2log D’oh, I didn’t even see that on the night! I’m going blind… blinder.
