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.
Brussels 2 Snippetwatch: Really tiny Private Dancer snippet in MW. One of those “snippet snippets”. Thanks, @diederdevries!
@diederdevries Hey, sorry I’ve been slow to get onto the snips, been busy. Doing it now. :) Don’t think that’s a snip in IWF.
@wind_mill_lane It’s not quite as tiny as the stadium in Horsens, or the “stadium” in Nice!
