@agatxus Still just rumours of a short European leg, nothing new. Not sure it will happen. Hope it does!

@hjwallace1 Thank you, and all the best to you for Christmas good times!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to hjwallace1

U2, of course, will be back on stage come February 2011, in South Africa. That will be our next live set - looking forward to it!

via U2gigs (Ax)

This is Ax, signing off. Hope you all have a good holiday season! We have some feature articles coming soon, so stay with us.

Full Perth 2 setlist, info, etc.: http://u2.gs/WA2 #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Alison has just provided me with some more snippet info. Will link to setlist with the snips in a minute. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Show’s over now, and so is the 4th leg. Thanks primarily to Alison D. and to @Sal_71 for info from the gig! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

OK, it’s taken a while, but Scarlet has been confirmed in the set! Party Girl snip was one verse, response to shouted request! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2tour Thank you, and the same to you! Enjoy the holidays! :)

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2tour

U2 are onto presumably last song of the night, Moment Of Surrender. @Sal_71 reports it was preceded by Party Girl snippet. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Next song is, of course, With Or Without You. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Yesss! Tonight Perth gets rocked out with HMTMKMKM. 22nd or 23rd song, still waiting for that Scarlet confirmation. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

After One was, of course, Streets. Aaand after Streets was a snip of Singing In The Rain. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

For me, Scarlet is easily one of the highlights of the 4th leg. I’m pleased it stayed in the set for all 10 shows! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Main set ended with Walk On, presumably (but unconfirmed as yet) preceded by Scarlet. Then Tutu, then One. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@MickiMaynard Heh. I had considered going to Perth too… but I blew my money following bands with varied sets, heh.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to MickiMaynard

Looks like U2 are really ending their Oceania leg with a bang tonight, huh! Well, it’s been a long time coming for Perth. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

So I missed out on both AIWIY and a Discotheque snip. What did Melbourne get? Shit In A Moment. Me, disappointed? Nooo.

via U2gigs (Ax)

Info from Alison: many snips in Crazy Tonight, including Discotheque! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

For those of you catching up (esp after recent confusion), here’s our article with the full set so far: http://u2.gs/WA2 #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Vertigo confirmed, thanks @Sal_71! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

U2 are now up to Sunday Bloody Sunday. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Band are now up to Crazy Tonight. I presume Vertigo was between COBL and Crazy but no confirmation from the venue yet. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Confirmation by @Sal_71 that Miss S was played, thanks! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

U2 are up to City Of Blinding Lights now. Not currently clear whether Miss S was between IALW and COBL or not. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Aaand Alison informs me that Desire was indeed full band! Huzzah! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Well yes, for the pedants out there, there was also the She’s The One/Desire medley on 2009-09-23. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Although it has been played twice off-tour this year, this is the first Desire performance on 360 itself since 2009-07-31. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Or to quote Alison D., who just texted me about the RAH segment, “sweet fucking jeebus!” #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Holy shit people! RAH madness: 10th is AIWIY, 11th is Love Rescue Me, 12th is Desire. Then IALW 13th. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@SeattleB I’m just glad North America is in a handy timezone for me. Gigs are early afternoon, my time.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

@EdgeFest Awesome, will love you for that!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EdgeFest

@Dutchelevation Ooh, even occasional updates would be great! I remember back in the day doing updates just every 4-5 songs.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Dutchelevation

@SeattleB Hey! The Aussie gigs have been kind of funny because less people have been around for the live sets. Looking forward to 2011!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

So much for my predictions. Ninth is I Still Haven’t Found. Damn. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@zhivvy Righto, good luck, hope you can go! :)

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to zhivvy

So, AIWIY or ISHFWILF next? C’mon AIWIY c’mon… #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Eighth is Until The End Of The World. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@zhivvy Oh awesome, that’d be great if you could!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to zhivvy

Seventh is Elevation. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2tour I wonder if we’ll get much info from the South African gigs! Neither Matt nor I are going…

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2tour

Sixth is Mysterious Ways. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@Reid_NZ I pretty much just sat online during the boring ISHFWILF-Miss S part of Melbourne 2, heh.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Reid_NZ

@U2tour Europe was great, thanks to you folks and others! And in North America, people seemed to be updating Twitter much more…

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2tour

@Reid_NZ Nobody I know has had many problems sending texts. It was easy in Melbourne, and my mates had few probs in Bris, Syd, Perth 1.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Reid_NZ

Ah yes, show IS under way! Via @Sal_71, set so far: Stingray Guitar, Beautiful Day, NYD, Boots, Magnificent. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2tour Yet other tweets indicate they’re still waiting for U2. Confusing!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2tour

By the way, let’s be honest, sources from Aussie gigs haven’t been the best. (Nor was my phone’s battery at Melbourne 1, remember that…!)

via U2gigs (Ax)

I may well have misinterpreted a tweet. Has the show begun or not? I haven’t heard anything from my source since Jay-Z. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Looks like the rain has stopped and that Space Oddity is playing at Subi. Here we go. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@ZooPony Exactly why I think it’ll just be a snippet.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

@thephonebox Hah, no, I hadn’t seen that! I’m not a U2.com member any more so I can’t read Willie’s diaries. Thanks for sharing!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to thephonebox

Oh yes, and I’ll predict a Christmas snippet somewhere, e.g. end of BDay, during Crazy, or intro to Streets. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@zhivvy I’m guessing there’ll be some Christmas snippet action, if not a full song.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to zhivvy

So, setlist picks? I reckon NYD early, AIWIY/LRM/Bad in the midset rotating slots, and HMTM to open 2nd encore. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Jay-Z is done in Perth. Not long until U2 begin the last show of the 4th leg. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Jay-Z is on at Subiaco. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@michaeldarren79 Agreed. Sometimes it feels less like a gig and more like a theatre stage production.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to michaeldarren79

There has been a light bit of rain around Perth this evening. Will Bono trot out the usual snippets? #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@wxander You can probably see why I don’t wear that shirt much now that I actually LIVE in Australia…!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

@wxander I have a shirt: “I support two teams: 1. New Zealand; 2. Whoever’s playing Australia”. It’s so true.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

@Matkin22 Think they begin in about 5.5 hours.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@Matkin22 Yep, last 4th leg gig. I imagine tonight will be AIWIY/LRM/Bad mid-set. You going to be around for the gig?

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

Soundchecking continues - a snatch of WOWY bass, now Moment Of Surrender. Still just instrumental. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Wonder if Bono will do anything in the way of Christmas snippets tonight. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@wxander Local crowd should be in quite a good mood, yes! I was hoping England would win, so I’m a bit less happy about it all. ;)

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

Now they’re onto soundcheck of Vertigo, still no vocals. Probably crew? #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Via Alison D., instrumental City Of Blinding Lights currently being soundchecked at Subi. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@wxander Game’s finished unexpectedly early anyway after England collapsed, so I doubt it made too much of an impact on the GA queue length.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

@wxander Sort of, but I say it more because it’s the fourth day of a very big game, and it’s being held at another stadium in Perth.

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

I suppose a lot of people are spending the day at/watching the cricket, then heading to Subi. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

By the way, GA queue for Perth 2 at 9:20am was only up to 60-something. Glowing reports about security compared to Sydney! #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

@atu2 I’ve no clue either re: what’s in UTEOTW around 3:35-40. Bono’s poor enunciation strikes again!

via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

Would love Bono to do a snippet of The Triffids while in Perth. Wide Open Road or Stolen Property would be awesome. #u2360perth

via U2gigs (Ax)

Brisbane 2 Snippetwatch via @njd29: Mysterious Ways had a snip of Never Tear Us Apart.
