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

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

October 2010

@ZooPony I haven’t heard any good rumours for those gaps, oddly enough. I hear Austin may be problematic; stadium too huge to sell out?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

@ZooPony Hm, if they did Boston between 7-17 June, the claw would come from Edmonton and then go to East Lansing. Possibly feasible then?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

South America (March/April), Baltimore (22/06), and St Louis (17/07) all rumoured to be announced in next 1-2 weeks. We’ll see…!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@presley99 Not really. Shows could fit in the gap between Oakland and Anaheim, but no specific rumours.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to MemphisMullen

@ZooPony Only other gaps in the tour schedule, U2 are on other side of continent to Boston, so it’d be logistically unfeasible/impossible.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

If St Louis happens, that will kill Boston rumours. Unless U2.com is wrong & Pittsburgh isn’t last, 16-18/07 was only realistic Boston slot.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So folks, rumour is U2 at Busch Stadium, St Louis on 2011-07-17, to be announced this week. Remember, Baltimore announcement also rumoured.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

atu2 Rumor: U2 in Porto Alegre, Brazil on April 21, 2011 http://bit.ly/b3dAug

 via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:48 PM, Oct 28th, 2010  via web)

U2 heading to Nashville on July, 2, 2011. U2.com presale from tomorrow: http://u2.gs/gY

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@golden254 Dates in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile should all be announced at the same time. Second shows should follow if first gigs sell out

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to golden254

@Matkin22 Still, it’s the record for stadium shows, and will probably set an attendance record by a mile.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@golden254 Yeah, Muse are rumoured to be support act in South America.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to golden254

@Matkin22 Not really. There has been a pissweak Halifax rumour but that’s it.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

And the rumour mill reckons U2’s South American leg will FINALLY be announced on 1 Nov or within a few days of that date.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Folks, stay tuned Monday, because there’s a media conference that in all likelihood will announce U2 in Nashville, 2011-07-02.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@atu2 I’m skeptical whether it’ll actually sell out, though…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

Prince and U2 set to headline Glastonbury Festival 2011 http://u2.gs/gX

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@vertigovid Hahaha. Plenty of gigs but not enough RAM!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to vertigovid

U2 Winnipeg presale starts 10/21 10am according to U2.com. Ticketmaster.ca still has Wednesday 10/20 10am listed.

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@EdgeFest Thanks for the heads-up about Winnipeg.

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to EdgeFest

U2’s camp announce Winnipeg concert http://u2.gs/gW

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@vertigovid Just the giant spreadsheet that is my over-taxed memory!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to vertigovid

Cancer research fundraiser auction - win a behind the scenes tour guided by Edge for any NA show in 2011 http://u2.gs/gV

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Winnipeg 05/29/2011 now on Ticketmaster.ca presale from Thursday: http://u2.gs/gU

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Another source for the U2-in-Winnipeg rumour, inc. that support act will be The Fray. See update to earlier article: http://u2.gs/gT

 via U2gigs (Ax)

The record for most U2 shows in Canada on one tour, regardless of venue type, is 9 (Elevation and Vertigo, all arenas).

 via U2gigs (Ax)

If the Winnipeg date happens, that’ll be U2’s record for most stadium gigs in Canada on one tour. 360 and Popmart currently equal with 7.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Sorry, both of our last articles should’ve been up an hour ago. I was busy doing my day job! Apologies for the delay.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Woops… another leaked date! Winnipeg on 29 May 2011? http://u2.gs/gT

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Confirmation of what we already knew - U2 to play South Africa in February 2011! http://u2.gs/RSA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Via @u2_news, gigs at River Plate Stadium must have seated field. So U2 may have to play elsewhere if they want standing GA in Argentina.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@u2_news Aha, thank you for explaining! Wasn’t aware that all those shows had seated fields.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2_news

@atu2 Haha, love how Irish Times calls new song “Boys Fall From The Sky”, not Boy Falls. Prequel to It’s Raining Men?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

Update on rumours about U2 touring South America next year: http://u2.gs/gR

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Matkin22 I’m going to make it 5th leg (prob with S America when it’s announced), and move Mexico City into 6th leg with other NA shows.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

You know how the South African tour promoter’s touting an announcement at 9am Monday local time? Just under 8 hours to go now.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@nkotbsouth Not yet, unfortunately. U2.com seem to be really dragging out tour announcements though…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to nkotbsouth

@hillcrestella Yeah, the hot rumour was South American announcement this week. Maybe on Monday, same time as South African announcement?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to hillcrestella

u2wanderer so it appears that u2 in south africa is being announced on monday. http://apps.facebook.com… thanks @U2tour

 via web (retweeted on 2:26 PM, Oct 14th, 2010  via web)

Rumours heat up about U2 visiting South Africa in February 2011: http://u2.gs/gQ

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@marceloj99 Munich clips are on our YouTube channel. None of us has been in Sevilla.

 via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to marceloj99

@wazowski09 Pretty sure they’re Bono’s, but I haven’t seen them fully typed out.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wazowski09

@mattmcgee Funny you say that, because I fleshed out the comments with a couple of details from this article on atu2: http://bit.ly/cmrh5Y

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to mattmcgee

@U2start One and the same, indeed!

 via web in reply to U2start

Surprised we didn’t have this on the database earlier, Bono performing solo in Buenos Aires, 1998-02-05 (or 06?): http://u2.gs/gN

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@diederdevries But I’m pretty sure he didn’t know about this … it’s nearly everywhere quoted as Goethe. Matt

 via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to diederdevries

Pittsburgh, PA show added as final night of US leg on July 26th, 2011. Presale from this Thursday. http://u2.gs/gM

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Get On Your Boots from Rome: http://u2.gs/gL Check our channel http://u2.gs/yt in a few hours for more clips. #u2 #u2360rome

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@BallinMVP I used to agree; then I heard Bad close a couple of gigs. Bad with 40 snippet = best U2 closer ever.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to BallinMVP

I Will Follow from Rome filmed by terrorsittich: http://u2.gs/gJ #u2 #u2360rome

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Here is Bad w/ All I Want Is You snippet from Rome: http://u2.gs/gH #u2 #u2360rome

 via U2gigs (Matt)

ISHFWILF with speech & GREAT fan choreography from Rome http://u2.gs/gG #u2360rome #u2

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Bye Claw. Bye U2. Bye everyone I’ve seen on the road. See you soon. #u2 #u2360 #u2360rome http://u2.gs/gF

 via Twitter for iPhone from della Vittoria, Rome

This is Ax, signing off for now. Over to Matt & his videos! See you for our next live set in 48 days from Auckland. Bring on One Tree Hill!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Today’s full Rome setlist and info: http://u2.gs/gC

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Thanks to @U2tour for the live stream today! You folks have done a great job with the streams this year.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Updating mainpage article now with full set and details, just give me a moment…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

That’s the end, folks. Crowd’s chanting 40 loudly.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Well, maybe that Happy Birthday was for Gavin Friday if he’s had a name & sex change in the last few hours.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ariclaytonu2 Shine Like Stars was done at Dublin 3 and Zagreb 2 last year, and (weakly) at Brussels 2 last month.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ariclaytonu2

It’s Gavin Friday’s birthday today but that Happy Birthday wasn’t for him!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

25th and presumably final song of the night and of the entire 2010 European leg, is Moment Of Surrender.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Bono leads the audience in singing Happy Birthday (24th song of the set); missed who it was for, woops.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome That’s just the fourth time the Shine Like Stars verse has been done on 360.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome SHINE LIKE STARS! Yessss.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 23rd is With Or Without You. As usual, I’m hoping Shine Like Stars will be done but know it probably won’t be.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Aww yeah. HMTMKMKM’s the right choice, U2. How’d it take over 12 years to rediscover this song?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 22nd is… Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome So, UV or HMTM tonight? Last gig was UV, so that suggests HMTM tonight, but the previous Italy gig got that, so maybe UV…?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Second encore break. Crowd’s chanting 40.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Galeongirl Sorry, no, don’t know what songs Matt’s filming. But I’m willing to bet one of them is Bad!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

@Galeongirl Huh! Lyrics websites have the weirdest mistakes sometimes.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

@ZooPony Every single time he’s done Rock The Casbah, he’s sung “she really don’t like it” instead of “the Shareef don’t like it”.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

#u2360rome Amazing Grace snippet leads into 21st song, Streets.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Galeongirl No, no, you were right the first time. :) The lyric’s “the Shareef don’t like it”.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

#u2360rome First song of encore, 20th song of the night, is One.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Time for Desmond Tutu’s speech.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 18th was MLK, 19th is Walk On. Snippet of You’ll Never Walk Alone at the end of Walk On.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2log I for one am grateful no pics exist from this gig (see the comment): http://u2.gs/gD

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2log

#u2360rome Somebody should con U2 into doing a full Rock The Casbah cover just to see what Bono makes of the rest of the lyrics!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Remember when Bono sang incorrect lyrics when snippeting Rock The Casbah in SBS? That was hilarious.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Get Up Stand Up snippet in SBS.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Snippet of Two Tribes at the end of Crazy Tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Snippet of Relax over the intro of Crazy Tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 16th is Crazy Tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Snippet of Teenage Kicks at the end of Vertigo.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 14th is City Of Blinding Lights.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Flaxh It amazes me how they often keep playing the same hits and omit other really big songs. Bad, EBTTRT, Discotheque, etc.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Flaxh

#u2360rome 13th is Miss Sarajevo.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome 12th song is In A Little While.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@u2wanderer You can take comfort that just as you’re leaving, the feed’s dropped out anyway!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2wanderer

@Flaxh I’ve definitely thought something like Bad or AIWIY would make a great replacement for WOWY. At least they still sound good live…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Flaxh

#u2360rome Eleventh is Mercy. Damn, I was hoping Boy Falls From The Sky would make a 2nd live appearance.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Man, for a minute there I thought Bad was about to segue into a full AIWIY, like it did at a couple of Lovetown shows.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome AIWIY hasn’t been played yet this tour… but are U2 going to play it in Australia, where RAH is their best-selling album?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Snippet of All I Want Is You in Bad!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome God I wish U2 would play this every night instead of… almost anything, really. Such an amazing live number.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome TENTH IS BAD! Only its second performance this year!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Now, here’s hoping one of the next 2 songs is Boy Falls From The Sky and that Matt gets a sweet video of it…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Yep, there we go, ninth is I Still Haven’t Found. So far, setlist is business as usual.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Bono introduces Edge as playing “guitar and everything else besides”.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Bono’s now speechifying… you know next song will almost certainly be I Still Haven’t Found.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AnaVitti Now that’s my kind of party!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnaVitti

#u2360rome UTEOTW has a snippet of Anthem by Leonard Cohen.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@skid63 So do I. Not to mention I miss when he’d madly shout snippets and stuff over the end.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to skid63

@skid63 Oh don’t tempt me into terrible song puns, I’ve Things To Make And Do!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to skid63

#u2360rome Eighth is Until The End Of The World.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Seventh is Elevation.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@skid63 54 days! Just hoping they keep the unreleased songs in the set for Australia.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to skid63

#u2360rome Sixth is Mysterious Ways.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Fifth is Magnificent.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Fourth is Get On Your Boots.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Third is I Will Follow. No snippet at the end of B Day today.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Here is our mainpage article where I will be posting the full setlist live: http://u2.gs/gC

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Second song is Beautiful Day. Rome crowd sounds rather vocal tonight.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome First song of the night is Return Of The Stingray Guitar, as normal.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Live stream from @U2tour available here: http://u2.gs/f9

 via U2gigs (Ax)

#u2360rome Space Oddity now playing in Rome. Show’s about to begin!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@SeattleB Looks like the folks at @U2tour will have a stream today, actually.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

Hi folks, Ax here. Can’t believe it’s the final gig of the European leg today.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Still lots of space in the stadium and FOS is still open as well. #u2 #u2360 #u2360rome http://u2.gs/gA

 via Twitter for iPhone from della Vittoria, Rome

@diederdevries Turns out that’s not a Goethe quote, just commonly mis-attributed. Trying to work out how to accurately add it to the set…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@u2wanderer Will be very impressed if U2 play NS! Though you’ve had some fairly big names play there recently, yes?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2wanderer

Rumours of U2 concerts in Nashville and Boston in 2011: http://u2.gs/gv

 via web

@walrusoct9 Thanks for passing that on! One of my own sources just hinted at this too.

 via web

@walrusoct9 Thanks for passing that on! One of my own sources hinted at this but not with as much detail.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AnalogWalrus

Mexico loves U2 - second gig sold out bloody quickly.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@wazowski09 Not a problem to me, since I’d like U2 to stop thinking in terms of hits.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wazowski09

Good quality Boy Falls From The Sky clip from Coimbra 2nd show: http://u2.gs/gu #u2 #u2360coimbra (via @hjwoj)

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@MaJoExploradora Rumour of gigs in UK/Ireland/one or two European cities (Paris, A’dam named). These rumours aren’t very strong yet though.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to MaJoExploradora

me_and_U2 Saw tonight’s setlist just now. Bad was on it. After Streets. But in brackets. Damn and blast. I demand a refund!

 via txt (retweeted on 5:41 AM, Oct 4th, 2010  via web)

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!”
