@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!
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!
This is Ax, signing off. Hope you all have a good holiday season! We have some feature articles coming soon, so stay with us.
Alison has just provided me with some more snippet info. Will link to setlist with the snips in a minute. #u2360perth
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
@U2tour Thank you, and the same to you! Enjoy the holidays! :)
Next song is, of course, With Or Without You. #u2360perth
Yesss! Tonight Perth gets rocked out with HMTMKMKM. 22nd or 23rd song, still waiting for that Scarlet confirmation. #u2360perth
After One was, of course, Streets. Aaand after Streets was a snip of Singing In The Rain. #u2360perth
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
Main set ended with Walk On, presumably (but unconfirmed as yet) preceded by Scarlet. Then Tutu, then One. #u2360perth
@MickiMaynard Heh. I had considered going to Perth too… but I blew my money following bands with varied sets, heh.
@SeattleB Let’s not forget 2006!
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
So I missed out on both AIWIY and a Discotheque snip. What did Melbourne get? Shit In A Moment. Me, disappointed? Nooo.
Info from Alison: many snips in Crazy Tonight, including Discotheque! #u2360perth
U2 are now up to Sunday Bloody Sunday. #u2360perth
Band are now up to Crazy Tonight. I presume Vertigo was between COBL and Crazy but no confirmation from the venue yet. #u2360perth
U2 are up to City Of Blinding Lights now. Not currently clear whether Miss S was between IALW and COBL or not. #u2360perth
Aaand Alison informs me that Desire was indeed full band! Huzzah! #u2360perth
Well yes, for the pedants out there, there was also the She’s The One/Desire medley on 2009-09-23. #u2360perth
Although it has been played twice off-tour this year, this is the first Desire performance on 360 itself since 2009-07-31. #u2360perth
Or to quote Alison D., who just texted me about the RAH segment, “sweet fucking jeebus!” #u2360perth
Holy shit people! RAH madness: 10th is AIWIY, 11th is Love Rescue Me, 12th is Desire. Then IALW 13th. #u2360perth
@SeattleB I’m just glad North America is in a handy timezone for me. Gigs are early afternoon, my time.
@EdgeFest Awesome, will love you for that!
@Dutchelevation Ooh, even occasional updates would be great! I remember back in the day doing updates just every 4-5 songs.
@SeattleB Hey! The Aussie gigs have been kind of funny because less people have been around for the live sets. Looking forward to 2011!
So much for my predictions. Ninth is I Still Haven’t Found. Damn. #u2360perth
@zhivvy Righto, good luck, hope you can go! :)
So, AIWIY or ISHFWILF next? C’mon AIWIY c’mon… #u2360perth
Eighth is Until The End Of The World. #u2360perth
@zhivvy Oh awesome, that’d be great if you could!
Seventh is Elevation. #u2360perth
@U2tour I wonder if we’ll get much info from the South African gigs! Neither Matt nor I are going…
Sixth is Mysterious Ways. #u2360perth
@Reid_NZ I pretty much just sat online during the boring ISHFWILF-Miss S part of Melbourne 2, heh.
@U2tour Europe was great, thanks to you folks and others! And in North America, people seemed to be updating Twitter much more…
@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.
@U2tour Yet other tweets indicate they’re still waiting for U2. Confusing!
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…!)
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
Looks like the rain has stopped and that Space Oddity is playing at Subi. Here we go. #u2360perth
@ZooPony Exactly why I think it’ll just be a snippet.
@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!
Oh yes, and I’ll predict a Christmas snippet somewhere, e.g. end of BDay, during Crazy, or intro to Streets. #u2360perth
@zhivvy I’m guessing there’ll be some Christmas snippet action, if not a full song.
So, setlist picks? I reckon NYD early, AIWIY/LRM/Bad in the midset rotating slots, and HMTM to open 2nd encore. #u2360perth
Jay-Z is done in Perth. Not long until U2 begin the last show of the 4th leg. #u2360perth
Jay-Z is on at Subiaco. #u2360perth
@michaeldarren79 Agreed. Sometimes it feels less like a gig and more like a theatre stage production.
There has been a light bit of rain around Perth this evening. Will Bono trot out the usual snippets? #u2360perth
@wxander You can probably see why I don’t wear that shirt much now that I actually LIVE in Australia…!
@wxander I have a shirt: “I support two teams: 1. New Zealand; 2. Whoever’s playing Australia”. It’s so true.
@Matkin22 Think they begin in about 5.5 hours.
@Matkin22 Yep, last 4th leg gig. I imagine tonight will be AIWIY/LRM/Bad mid-set. You going to be around for the gig?
Soundchecking continues - a snatch of WOWY bass, now Moment Of Surrender. Still just instrumental. #u2360perth
Wonder if Bono will do anything in the way of Christmas snippets tonight. #u2360perth
@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. ;)
Now they’re onto soundcheck of Vertigo, still no vocals. Probably crew? #u2360perth
Via Alison D., instrumental City Of Blinding Lights currently being soundchecked at Subi. #u2360perth
@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.
@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.
I suppose a lot of people are spending the day at/watching the cricket, then heading to Subi. #u2360perth
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
@atu2 I’ve no clue either re: what’s in UTEOTW around 3:35-40. Bono’s poor enunciation strikes again!
Would love Bono to do a snippet of The Triffids while in Perth. Wide Open Road or Stolen Property would be awesome. #u2360perth
Brisbane 2 Snippetwatch via @njd29: Mysterious Ways had a snip of Never Tear Us Apart.
