An update summarising current rumours of U2 in South America next year: http://u2.gs/hi

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@atu2 …letter of the word! Compare “abbreviation”/”abbrev.” to “mount”/”mt”. So a lot of people even here write “Mt.” incorrectly!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

@atu2 You’ll find most people don’t understand this rule, since we DO use a full stop when the last letter of the abbrev. is not the last…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

@u2wanderer e.g. some UK dictionaries recognise “-ize” as well as “-ise”. Down here, “-ise” remains the only correct form of the suffix.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2wanderer

@u2wanderer I’ve even noticed some US English features being accepted by UK dictionaries lately. Aus/NZ are last hold-outs in some cases.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to u2wanderer

@atu2 Haha, I see both Matt and I are on the ball today. Didn’t notice he’d replied before me.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

@atu2 Because only US English uses a full stop when abbreviating “Mount” to “Mt”. Could explain further but Twitter’s character limit blows.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

@atu2 Good question. Stumbled over this 4 years ago in Auckland. Ericsson Stadium was more clear ;-)

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to atu2

@Rodneuson There are merch stands inside the venue for seat and GA areas and in the Red Zones (small ones). Sometimes outside of the venue.

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to Rodneuson

@thijst That is in fact the sole live performance of Scarlet that I mean. There may not have been a studio audience, but we still count it.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to thijst

@danbakes I’d hope so, but maybe not if they want to rest a day and stay fresh for the two gigs? Guess we’ll see what happens!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to danbakes

danbakes http://youtu.be/0NtoCN9K… & http://youtu.be/Fw3ENgVv… - U2 sound rehearsing tonight. One Tree Hill! Amazing. PUMPED. @U2gigs

Our summary of this evening’s U2 rehearsal has now been fully updated: http://u2.gs/hh

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Crew are boarding their bus, definitely it’s all over for tonight. Thanks so much especially to @gimp2u23 for all his reports tonight!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Seems the band’s rehearsal tonight could be heard clearly around nearby suburbs - got comments from Ellerslie, Remuera.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Simon reports that the stage lights are still on, but nothing’s happening.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Looks like proceedings might indeed be over in Auckland, as Bono seemed to indicate. Nothing’s been played yet after BFFTS.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Matkin22 Hey now, I actually like Unknown Caller!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

Boy Falls From The Sky was preceded by a lengthy jam.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So Bono’s asked the band if they want to play BFFTS and then pack it in for the night. 14th is consequently Boy Falls From The Sky.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

gimp2u23 Could be stumps here in Auckland…. Bono said they would call it a night soon….

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 9:44 AM, Nov 23rd, 2010  via web)

After IALW is Miss Sarajevo as usual. I’m worried Aus/Kiwi audiences will miss out on UF, like we missed out on Elec Co. and Gloria in 2006.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Surprised some of you haven’t heard about the Pike River mine disaster. Is the world over mining disasters post-Chile?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Hey, U2? You made up for missing us in 2001 back on Vertigo! Can we have some more NLOTH songs please, rather than ATYCLB?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Ugh, In A Little While lives on, slotting in at 12th. It is preceded by recording of Neil Armstong moon landing quote.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Bono mentions the Pike River Miners before OTH. U2 stop about a third of the way through the song and restart it.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

For those of you just tuning in now, here’s our mainpage article with details of what U2 have rehearsed so far today: http://u2.gs/hh

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Here it is! One Tree Hill slots in at eleventh in the rehearsal setlist.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@golden254 This is just a rehearsal. The actual gigs are on the 25th and 26th.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to golden254

Tenth is Mercy!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

UTEOTW was largely instrumental. Ninth is I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Now they’re onto Until The End Of The World, with Bono yelling “is this rock ‘n’ roll?” at the start like in the old days.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Seventh is Elevation.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

gimp2u23 Edge a horrific few chords in magnificent much to the amusement of the 13 of us standing at gate C!!

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 9:03 AM, Nov 23rd, 2010  via web)

Sixth is Mysterious Ways.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fifth is Magnificent.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fourth is Get On Your Boots.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

One Tree Hill snippet at the end of Beautiful Day, now they’re onto I Will Follow.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Should add that they’ve got all the lights and smoke going for this rehearsal.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

After Stingray Guitar is Beautiful Day, as on the European leg.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

As you might expect after Space Oddity, now they’re playing Stingray Guitar.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Space Oddity now playing over the PA at Mt Smart.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Now at Mt Smart Stadium, @gimp2u23 reports some guitar sounds and a few keys, but not much else.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

No new reports from Mt Smart, all is still quiet. Will the band do another rehearsal session or is that it for today? We’ll see.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@hjwallace1 It’s a bit early - right now it’s 7:40pm in Auckland.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to hjwallace1

I also have to take a break in proceedings. I’ll be back in about half an hour to let you know if anything more has happened in Auckland.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Via @gimp2u23, looks like they’re taking a break in proceedings now.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Summary of today’s rehearsals thus far, will keep article updated as more happens: http://u2.gs/hh

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@AmosBudd5086 Perhaps, but you’re a fool for confusing “your” and “you’re”.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to AmosBudd5086

Make that an instrumental Boy Falls From The Sky with the PA turned right down now.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Bit more lowkey soundchecking now, riff from Boy Falls From The Sky.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Matkin22 In a very, very good way. Fuck off, IALW.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Matkin22 That’d shit all over IALW/Miss S!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@Matkin22 I was sarcastically thinking of a clunky segue into Scarlet mid-UTEOTW from that Anthem snippet. ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Matkin22 And with MOS would be too much slow stuff; MOS already loses some of the audience. Knowing U2, it’ll probably be with UTEOTW!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

Now they’re doing the unreleased song Boy Falls From The Sky.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Matkin22 That’s what I’m wondering! Before Walk On?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@U2Trivia i.e. he’s improvising extra lyrics around the main refrain.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Trivia

U2 have only ever done Scarlet live once before, on 14 October 1981. Let’s hope they actually do this at a gig and don’t Drowning Man it.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Can confirm they’re doing Scarlet and Bono’s improvising a bit. Thanks to Ian on Interference.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Conflicting reports from stadium, they’re doing either Rejoice or Scarlet. Suspect latter. Either way, holy fucking shit!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Scratch that - confirmed! Bono’s there, full band One Tree Hill now!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Bono may be there. Simon thinks he heard him singing OTH’s outro away from the mics, but cannot confirm.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Full instrumental performance of One Tree Hill. Thanks to @gimp2u23 for his reports so far; here is his vantage point: http://u2.gs/hg

 via U2gigs (Ax)

One Tree Hill jam, through PA now. Just sound so far, no lights or on-screen visuals. Umbrellas up on stage.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@kandlm UF’s better live. Plus it’d be nice to hear a song any Aussie/Kiwi fan under the age of ~40 has never heard live than one they have.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to kandlm

@dawn9902 Hey! Yep, that’s N/One Tree Hill itself.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to dawn9902

Simon now reports that One Tree Hill’s riff is being soundchecked - through amps only, not the PA.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Via @gimp2u23 (aka Simon), not much happening yet at Mt Smart, just some tuning up… and some light rain passing through.
