U2gigs (@u2gigs)

Matt: Berlin / Ax: Wollongong / Matkin: Toronto / Chris: NY

The below is an off-site archive of all most tweets posted by @u2gigs ever

September 2010

Anyway, this is Ax, signing off for now. Can’t believe we’ve just one European gig to go. See you on Friday for the Rome show!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Unfortunately we have no video from Coimbra 2 since Matt couldn’t attend. He’ll be in Rome; let’s hope U2 do Boy Falls From The Sky again!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Full setlist and info for Coimbra 2 here: http://u2.gs/gt

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Wow, so Bono does all three of his usual rain snippets without repeating ANY of them!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Baaahahaha, there’s the Singing In The Rain snippet after MOS! Just snippeting, snippeting in the rain…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

And here’s Moment Of Surrender, 24th and presumably last song of the night.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Bono’s now speechifying, thanking the crowd for an “unforgettable night”.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@SeattleB Was hoping Bad would appear, especially given that they want to do something special for Coimbra, but lost hope now.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

23rd is With Or Without You.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Yep, 22nd is indeed Ultra Violet.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

2nd encore break. Now the guessing game, HMTM or UV? Presumably UV, since HMTM was done last night.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Amazing Grace snip leads into 21st song, Streets.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

One doesn’t have Hear Us Coming tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@alljokesmustgo Haha, so they did! That hadn’t occurred to me.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to alljokesmustgo

Of course, I’d have no problem if Bono followed Aussie Rules and snippeted See The Bombers Fly Up. We can pretend Essendon won the flag?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

20th song, first of encore, is One.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Over to Bishop Tutu now.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Snip of You’ll Never Walk Alone. Thank god Bono doesn’t follow Aussie Rules and we haven’t copped Good Old Collingwood Forever!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

19th is Walk On.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Vain hope indeed. 18th is MLK as usual.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

It’s a vain hope, but I’m hoping all the same that MOTD will return to the 18th slot in the setlist…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Relax snippet again at the end of Crazy. No Two Tribes tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Good, I wasn’t hearing things. Relax snip at the start of Crazy. Thanks @U2log!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Galeongirl Damn, those supposed cheap airfares aren’t cheap enough!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

Did he sneak a line of Relax into Crazy’s intro or was I hearing things?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

16th is Crazy Tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

She Loves You snippet at the end of Vertigo.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Galeongirl *checks wallet* … reckon $25.20 is enough?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

15th is Vertigo.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ZooPony Here’s hoping! This is, I think, only the 3rd song on tour he hasn’t heard, after YBR and She’s The One.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

@atu2comSherry Camera tech improvements mean next year you may be able to set a new higher standard! Next tour could be amazing…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2comSherry

14th is City Of Blinding Lights.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2log Blasted tall people, eh? Maybe I should coax one of my tall friends into doing some recording in Melbourne…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

13th is Miss Sarajevo.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@atu2comSherry I just hope they have Matt’s good camera and stable hands! ;) (I know I don’t!)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2comSherry

Back down to earth now, folks. 12th is just In A Little While.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Well, I reckon this sounds pretty sweet. Wish Matt was in Coimbra to record this. :(

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@alljokesmustgo I can’t believe you’re right and that they’re actually doing something TOTALLY new! Wow, nice.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to alljokesmustgo

This is that Spiderman musical song.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So eleventh is LIVE DEBUT of BOY FALLS FROM THE SKY.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Woah, in honour of the welcome Coimbra has given U2, they’re playing a song they’ve never done before!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Now crowd’s chanting Pride’s “oh oh oh oh” bit.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Pride has only been done in this setlist spot before in Moscow, Athens, & Istanbul. Guess they aren’t doing the SBS/Pride swap for night 2.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Oh hello, tenth is Pride!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2log I Still Haven’t Found The Best Night I’m Looking For.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

@Galeongirl Don’t really think it was a snip, wasn’t the melody of Singing In The Rain, nor is “won’t you come back again?” a lyric in it.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

Shorter speech than last night. Ninth is I Still Haven’t Found.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

It’s Bono speech time now…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@SeattleB It’s been far too long since he’s snippeted that!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

Woah, Bono doesn’t bring UTEOTW to a halt before the “drowning my sorrows” verse. Thank god.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2log @u2gigs He sang: “singing in the rain, won’t you come back again… COIMBRA!”

 via web (retweeted on 11:20 PM, Oct 3rd, 2010  via web)

@SeattleB Bad, AOH or Desire, UV, Pride in SBS’s spot. And Cartoon World instead of Walk On. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

Eighth is Until The End Of The World.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Goddamnit, I was briefly not paying attention - was that another rain-themed snip in Elevation, or just improv lyrics?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Seventh is Elevation.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Can’t Stand The Rain snippet in MW.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Sixth is Mysterious Ways.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fifth song is Magnificent. No “where are we going?” tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2log Haha, if it were, I can’t wait for the next song, Magnifitastic.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

Bono’s changing up the lyrics to Boots’ verses tonight…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Live feed drops out, returns, just in time for fourth, Get On Your Boots.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@SeattleB Hehe, or how about NYD / October (snippet)? At this stage, it’d be better than nothing…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

@wxander Even spottier than yesterday! Sounds like the communication network is really overloaded…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

Third is New Year’s Day, back after a night off yesterday.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Snippet of The Beatles’ Rain at the end of BDay. There we go, the Snippeting In The Rain begins!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@SeattleB “NYD into October”, you say? Now that’d be funny. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

Here is our mainpage article where I will be posting the full set live: http://u2.gs/gt

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Second song is Beautiful Day. Crowd is again in very good voice.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Live stream today courtesy of @U2tour is here: http://u2.gs/f9

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Opener is, naturally, Stingray Guitar.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Space Oddity now playing in Coimbra… almost showtime!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@xalira Hah, awesome! I’ve been to all 6 of their Australian shows; best gig I’ve ever seen was their Melbourne gig earlier this year.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Xalira

@SeattleB You may want to reconsider that opinion; have you heard October into Tomorrow from the War Tour, 1st leg?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

@SeattleB I’m sure there’s some truth if there’s money behind it. ;) God I’d love a song from October, even just the title track before NYD.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

It was raining in Coimbra earlier… wonder if we’ll get some Snippeting In The Rain and other torrential classics tonight!

 via web

U2 should begin in about 35-40 minutes. Soundcheck was Pride, Desire, Bad, but may have been just by the crew, not U2.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Hi folks, Ax here for Coimbra 2. Like yesterday, neither of us are there, but let’s not let that stop us from doing gig coverage!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@xalira Top 5 bands? Hmm… Porcupine Tree, Crowded House, Agalloch, Pure Reason Revolution, The Chills.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to xalira

@u2wanderer Bono’s afraid I’d make him snippet 50 obscure Kiwi bands in Bad.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2wanderer

Looking forward to seeing what the band do for Coimbra 2. For now, this is Ax, signing off. See you folks tomorrow!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Sorry, we won’t have videos today (or tomorrow), since Matt isn’t in Coimbra. But don’t despair: he will be in Rome! :)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Full live set and info for Coimbra 1 here: http://u2.gs/gs

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Thanks very much to @U2tour for the live feed today!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

That’s the end of the gig today, folks.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ZooPony I wish Bono would at least try to sing it properly rather than speaking the verses.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

@Drea104 I have to get in at least one per show. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Drea104

A time traveller from 1983 would be so confused by how little this sounds like a moment of Surrender.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ZooPony No kidding. Remember how great it sounded in 1987-89? I miss that.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

@ClaytonsKitten Here’s hoping the surprise of HMTM two nights in a row happens in Melbourne. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ClaytonsKitten

23rd is With Or Without You.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ClaytonsKitten I’d say UV is pretty much guaranteed tomorrow now!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ClaytonsKitten

22nd is… Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

2nd encore break… HMTM or UV? My bet’s on HMTM, since UV was done at the last gig.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti I think you’ve found a solution! And bribe Edge with a brand new beanie…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

Amazing Grace snip leads into 21st song, Streets.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti I hate to think how huge that bribe would have to be…!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

20th song, first of encore, is One.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Here’s Desmond Tutu’s speech…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

There’s the You’ll Never Walk Alone snip, right on cue.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti If they ever play Wild Irish Rose or bring back Zooropa or Dirty Day… that’d be perfect. Perfect.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

@U2log @U2wanderer How about a filter so that only OUR tweets and other approved accounts get through!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

@AnaVitti Yes! But only fans who own October, to get rid of the people who own just a Best Of and request hits we’ve heard heaps before. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

18th is MLK; 19th is Walk On.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti As for early songs, like all your suggestions, would add Electric Co, The Fool, Brick, and Another Time Another Place.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

@AnaVitti How about a 2nd gig, of 1984-89 songs? I want to hear One Tree Hill/Exit/Mothers close a set. It’d rule.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

When I turned on my radio the other night, I heard Gloria on a hyper-commercial station. As if it was an obscurity in the ’05 sets.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Here I was, thinking all our tweets appeared on Bono’s teleprompter…!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Two Tribes snippet. What, Bono didn’t read my last tweet? Shocked, I tell you, shocked! ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Hey Bono, Discotheque > Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Just so you know, for your snippetry reference.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ClaytonsKitten I can’t believe how quickly that disappeared. Given up on it returning… :(

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ClaytonsKitten

@AnaVitti Me too! 1978-1984 U2 is my favourite (along with Lovetown U2). Would love to hear 11OTT, Rejoice, Twilight, songs like that.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

Relax snip before 1st verse of Crazy.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

16th is Crazy Tonight. Still waiting for Bono to snippet the Chicken Tonight ad jingle in this.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Vertigo has a snippet of Teenage Kicks.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti Yes! To make up for neglecting them in recent setlists, U2 can’t play anything recorded after 1982.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

15th is Vertigoo. That was a typo, but I like it so it’s staying.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Can we move U2’s Melbourne gigs to a tiny club? Nothing scheduled at the East Brunsy yet…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

14th is City Of Blinding Lights.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ClaytonsKitten I can get behind that. Anything to get rid of IALW.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ClaytonsKitten

Just struck me how weird it is that I saw a tiny club gig in Melbourne last night, now setlisting a huge stadium gig on other side of world.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

13th is Miss Sarajevo.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Glasto last done 21/08, EBW last done 11/09. NS/Mercy combo done at 5 out of 7 gigs since 12/09.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Interesting how North Star/Mercy has settled as the unreleased song duo. I, for one, miss Glasto.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

12th is In A Little While.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Well, if I don’t spot a snip, you people are good at picking it. ISHFWILF’s snip was One Love by Bob Marley. Thanks, all!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti Oh woops! My excuse is that I’ve had four hours of sleep, heh.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

11th is Mercy. Wonder which unreleased song will be first to have a snippet, heh.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Oh yeah, I was way too distracted by the Aussie Rules grand final yesterday and forgot to check the snip in Vertigo in Seville.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

There was a snippet at the end of ISHFWILF but I have no idea what it was. Didn’t sound like a usual ISHFWILF snip.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Tenth is North Star.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti Hehe, it was meant to be “aw yeah bro, now Bono’s giving a speech”.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

@U2log Soooo spuchufying. Very nearly announced this song as “I Stull Huvint Fund”.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

As usual, the speech leads into I Still Haven’t Found.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2log Aw yih bru! Now Buno’s spuchufying, eh!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

Bono, as usual, is speechifying at this point.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

I keep accidentally typing “snuppet”… guess I’m just typing with my Kiwi accent?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

UTEOTW has a snippet of Anthem.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Eighth is Until The End Of The World.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Seventh is Elevation.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Let It Be snippet at the end of MW.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Sixth is Mysterious Ways.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fifth is Magnificent.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fourth is Get On Your Boots.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Third is I Will Follow, back in the set after missing the Seville gig.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

I’ll be posting the full set live in this article: http://u2.gs/gs

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Crowd’s in good voice. Second is Beautiful Day.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2 are go with Return Of The Stingray Guitar.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

The good people at @U2tour have a live stream from Coimbra: http://u2.gs/f9

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Space Oddity now playing in Coimbra.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Hi all, Ax here. Again, neither of us can be in Coimbra, but I’ll bring you coverage of the gig as usual. U2 should begin in about 30 mins.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@CoachRocks If they expected it to sell on the same level as HTDAAB, they’re out of touch with album sales levels nowadays.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to CoachRocks

@U2log Seconded! Lillywhite has no bloody idea. Never mind that NLOTH’s sales were damn good when you consider overall global album sales.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

@_seanmcgee Just compare any 1989 WOWY to any 360 Tour WOWY and get back to me on that.

 via web in reply to theseanmcgee

Also, way to go U2.com: accidentally announce Baltimore, and Mexico City 2 presale is TOMORROW! Still springing presales on us, I see.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2 to play Glasto and Baltimore in 2011? http://u2.gs/gr

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Second show in Mexico added for May 15th http://u2.gs/gq

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Anyway, this is Ax, signing off. It’s been fun. PS I may be an Essendon man, but I can’t resist a “CARN THE SAINTS!” for tomorrow.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Honestly, a little disappointed Spanish Eyes wasn’t done again today. Seems that like ZooTV and Elevation, it came back for just one gig.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Peaches66 Know what you mean. They honestly haven’t been my favourite band for a good few years now. Still top 10, but not top 5.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Peaches66

@zoostationsf I love, love the performances with both Shine Like Stars and LWTUA. Those are truly epic.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to zoostationsf

Sorry, won’t be any videos today, since Matt wasn’t there. Next week, look out for some from the final show of the leg in Rome. :)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Full Seville setlist and info: http://u2.gs/gp

 via U2gigs (Ax)

That’s the end of MOS, and the end of the show for another night. Big thanks to @U2tour for their live stream!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@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.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to zoostationsf

24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Man, if crowds keep chanting WOWY like this, they’re never going to drop/improve it, no matter how weak it sounds nowadays.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

No, we won’t shine like stars in the Seville night tonight. Ah well…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

23rd is With Or Without You. Fingers crossed for Shine Like Stars.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@fuzzyness Can’t wait for hundreds of people in 2020 to believe it actually happened. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to fuzzyness

@srj68 Hehe. He totally should one day when they play HMTMKMKM.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to srj68

@ClaytonsKitten Haha I’m sure! The responses I’ve got have cracked me up.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ClaytonsKitten

@mduchek I’m constantly amused by Aussie Rules football team songs. Most are horrendous!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to mduchek

@Almond87 I just love the last name of the bloke you’ve got in place of Leon! Goldsack, haha.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Almond87

22nd is Ultra Violet, back after missing the last 2 shows.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@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!”

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Brief snip of All You Need Is Love in Streets.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@JoeFahey93 Carn the mighty Bombers- oh wait. :(

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Achtung_Fahey

@Almond87 How’s the nerves? Getting pumped for tomorrow? I can’t wait.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Almond87

Amazing Grace snip leads into 21st song, Streets.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Hey, One has the Hear Us Coming verse today. Cool.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@mduchek Agreed! So glad that at least Stuck In A Moment hasn’t been done this year.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to mduchek

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.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

20th song, first of encore, is One.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@mduchek In A Little While, One, and… only three? Guess WOWY sounds worse than ISHFWILF nowadays, so it can go.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to mduchek

@llootsteen39 Probably in U2’s minds, NYD rather than IWF and NS rather than SE is a drastic change… :|

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to llootsteen39

@Almond87 “I want to run, I want to hide from good old Collingwood forever”? ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Almond87

Walk On ends with a snippet of Oops I Did It Agai- uh, actually, You’ll Never Walk Alone.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@alljokesmustgo Not sure, don’t think so. Possibly early on the UF Tour? Been ages since I listened to 1984 bootlegs.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to alljokesmustgo

Yep, there’s Walk On. And here’s my usual joke of “can’t believe it’s not One Minute Warning!”

 via U2gigs (Ax)

18th is MLK. Might as well call Walk On at 19th now too.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@u2tourZargor That looks pretty plausible, thanks!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2tourZargor

17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

The Life During Wartime snip the other day during Crazy’s outro was cool… would love that to be done again.
