This is Ax, signing out for now. Over to Matt and his videos. :)
Full Munich setlist, stats, and info here: http://u2.gs/f8
Got some clips as usual. Will upload asap. Matt
And with the Singing In The Rain snippet, the show comes to an end. Thanks to @U2tour again for the stream!
Singing In The Rain snip at the end of MOS.
@SeattleB 6 May 2010, funeral of Gerry Ryan. In concert, twice in 2009: 27 July and 10 August.
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
Bono gives his usual speech of thank yous.
Alas, no Shine Like Stars, just a perfunctory “oh oh oh”.
Well, we got Hear Us Coming, now how about some Shine Like Stars? I know, I’m not getting my hopes up.
@xalira Yep, bet HMTMKMKM is done in Paris in a few days.
23rd is With Or Without You, also returning to the set after missing Zurich 2.
@alfro_j Oh, no apology necessary, I realised what I’d said before I saw your comment! :)
@jpstarkey Which is partly why it’s taking so much time, but I like that particular verse.
@Matkin22 What are the odds of Bono remembering one of his own songs rather than snippeting somebody else’s? ;)
Well, UV rather than nothing, compared to Zurich 2. You know what I mean.
So, UV rather than HMTMKMKM - first setlist change from Zurich 2.
22nd song is… Ultra Violet.
My votes for new rain snips: The Chills’ Rain, The Cure’s Prayers For Rain, REM’s So. Central Rain, & Tim Finn’s No Thunder No Fire No Rain.
But thankfully @U2log got the snip - Purple Rain.
OK, there was some rain-related snip at the end of Streets - but I missed it! Ugh.
Brief snip of All You Need Is Love in Streets.
Really need to get back to my project of cataloguing all instances of Hear Us Coming. Real life been getting in the way.
@diederdevries Think so, unless I’m grossly mistaken.
@alljokesmustgo Popmart Tampa proved, if nothing else, that an It’s Raining Men snippet will give us laughs for years to come!
Amazing Grace snippet into 21st song of the night, Streets.
Aww yeah, One has Hear Us Coming!
@pvree Haven’t been any reports of taping… think Bono’s just taking it easy on the snips for a change.
@SeattleB More ASOH indeed1 I didn’t mind You’ll Never Walk Alone snip in Auckland ’06, but now it’s cliche.
@ah533 Seems You’ll Never Walk Alone wasn’t done at a good number of the September ’09 shows. Will have to check recordings to confirm.
First song of encore, 20th of the night, is One.
Apparently there’s just been a little bit of rain in Munich… enough to prompt the usual snippets? We’ll see.
Over to Desmond Tutu…
Do I even need to tell you folks that there’s a snippet of You’ll Never Walk Alone at the end of Walk On? It’d be news if it WEREN’T done.
@thefly202005 That would be too perfect. Then into Exit to rock out the end of the main set.
19th is Walk On.
Dear U2, please keep MOTD in the setlist at least until the Melbourne shows. Please. Pretty please.
@Matkin22 Haha, thanks for the laugh though. :) (I’m easily amused when I’m tired, it seems.)
This is the first time MOTD has been played at consecutive gigs since 1998!
18th is… Mothers Of The Disappeared!
Fingers and toes crossed that MOTD stays in the set.
Poor Discotheque, it struggles to stay in the set even as a snippet!
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Two Tribes and Relax snippets at end of Crazy, Two Tribes the longer of the two.
@jpstarkey I’m skeptical too. Unfortunately Matt was late to stadium and missed soundcheck. U2tour only report NYD, MOS/MS keys, MOTD intro.
There’s some snippetry! Brief Funky Town at the start of Crazy Tonight.
16th is Crazy Tonight.
Don’t think there was a snippet at the end of Vertigo tonight.
@skid63 Too true! I have a pipedream that he will snippet a great song from my homeland, Rain by The Chills.
15th is Vertigo.
@santiago2u Be There is pretty good, but personally, I think Wild Irish Rose is the most amazing unreleased “Internet U2 nerd” song.
Show’s been light on snippets so far. Do we need some rain to get our fix of hot snippet action? ;)
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
13th is Miss Sarajevo.
Munich set identical to Zurich 2 so far. Will MOTD remain today? Will we get a full encore?
12th is In A Little While.
Funny how Glasto has disappeared from the set after being done at the first 7 shows of the leg.
In fact, Bono, out of all the new songs, Mercy is probably the one that U2 Internet nerds like us know best!
So, after its debut at the 2nd Zurich gig, Mercy gets a second outing.
“We’ve played the next song only once ever, so you can’t know that!” Oh but we do. 11th is MERCY.
Bono is surprised when the crowd sings along at the end of North Star.
Sounds like North Star is just Bono and Edge tonight, alas.
There was no snip at the end of ISHFWILF. I miss the Movin’ On Up snippet; Bono sung that beautifully.
Tenth song of the night is North Star. C’mon guys, do it full band!
@U2log Sorry, I missed your tweet! Forgive me, it’s 5:30am here and my wakefulness is questionable. ;)
And as expected, 9th song of the night is I Still Haven’t Found.
Via @J_Benzone, the UTEOTW snippet was Leonard Cohen’s Anthem.
Bono’s speech acknowledges the Munich doctors who treated his back.
Speech time. You know this means ISHFWILF is next, unless there’s a huge change.
Bono seemed to be improvising/snippeting before the “drowning my sorrows” part of UTEOTW, but if it was a snip, I’ve no idea what.
@hjwallace1 Yeah, I’m surprised NLOTH hasn’t been done again after its Helsinki appearance. I’d like it back.
Setlist is pretty much business as usual so far. Wonder what the new songs will be tonight? Mercy again? Will Glasto be back?
8th is Until The End Of The World.
Seventh is Elevation.
My Sweet Lord snippet in MW.
@Matkin22 Still surprised EBTTRT hasn’t appeared, given it has been rehearsed. Similarly, it was rehearsed but not played on Vertigo.
Sixth is Mysterious Ways.
Fifth is Magnificent.
@Matkin22 Extended Dance Remix fucking slays. But my vote for best b-side goes to Treasure.
Fourth is Boots.
@Matkin22 Yeah, I’m skeptical. I’ve been saying for years that it’d own live, though!
It’s bizarre to think this is just IWF’s 4th appearance on 360, and the 1st time it has been done at consecutive shows.
Glad they’re doing IWF in this slot, after NYD occupied it at the two German gigs last month.
No snip at the end of B Day. Third is I Will Follow.
@Matkin22 You’d think so, but there’s just no excuse for 5am existing! ;)
Here’s our mainpage article where I will be posting the full set live: http://u2.gs/f8
Second is Beautiful Day.
Ax checking in here at the start of the Munich gig. We’re go with Stingray Guitar opening as usual.
@Matkin22 was late at stadium so can’t tell. Matt
With Bike to a concert. Premiere for me ;-) http://u2.gs/eY
@Matkin22 We know how badly they overthink albums and take too long with them; an EP may be liberating, and get closer to the raw U2 sound.
@Matkin22 A proper studio EP. Try to do something different than yet another album. It’s been too long since WAIA.
@Matkin22 I want them to surprise us all and kick out an EP.
@Matkin22 Since it seems their attention is now away from Glasto, on getting EBW, NS, and Mercy to work.
@Matkin22 Glasto’s probably my fav of the new songs, actually. Surprised it hasn’t been done in a while but I think U2 are confident in it.
@Matkin22 Haha yeah, though my bet is they won’t do it. My money’s on EBW and Glasto.
