February 2011

Confirmation of what we already knew - U2 to play Glastonbury on 24/06: http://u2.gs/gl11

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@EdgeFest Which is especially funny because I usually fall asleep during WOWY these days…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EdgeFest

@EdgeFest Haha, well, I woke up during WOWY and bided my time.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EdgeFest

@U2start Don’t worry, they’re mentioned! :)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2start

Here we go, Cape Town setlist and info: http://u2.gs/capetownset #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

And in a couple of minutes, I’ll have a fully updated article on the Cape Town gig for you! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Ax here, and I’m just in time for tweet #6666! How evil. So if you’re wondering, this was the 666th gig added to U2gigs: http://u2.gs/evil

U2log Report: U2 to join Coldplay and Beyonce as Glastonbury 2011 headliners « Consequence of Sound: http://bit.ly/gtUzyF

 via twitterfeed (retweeted on 10:38 PM, Feb 18th, 2011  via U2gigs (Matt))

I should save tweets to leave number 6666 to Axver. Remember this article? http://u2.gs/666

 via web

17. is Sunday Bloody Sunday. For the full set so far check our article here http://u2.gs/capetownset #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@u2com Can we have feeds of this quality for all upcoming shows. Thank you! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@EveryBrokenWave I wasn’t able to listen close as I was on the phone. Will check this later.

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

We’re updating the Cape Town setlist here: http://u2.gs/capetownset #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Showtime. Boots intro running #u2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@MattElford I’m sure many will record it incl. me.

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to MattElford

KFM switched to stadium. So this stream will work for non U2.com subscribers #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@AndyFC91 It’s on U2.com. The radio station (KFM) I’m listening is not live in the stadium yet.

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to AndyFC91

Stream on U2.com is live now #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@Almond87 Show should start in about 4 hours. I’ll try to cover it. Hopefully one of the streams work. Matt

 via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to Almond87

khoki Dunno how to tweet this. Got into stadium by accident while U2 are doing sound checks on stage @u2gigs

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 3:50 PM, Feb 18th, 2011  via U2gigs (Matt))

atu2 U2.com has just emailed its subscribers announcing they will be streaming the live audio broadcast of Cape Town tonight. #U2360SA #thanks

 via TweetDeck (retweeted on 2:39 PM, Feb 18th, 2011  via web)

Hi folks, it’s Ax. I can’t do live commentary for Cape Town gig today, sorry! Hopefully Matt can. Full set & report at the end as usual! :)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2 360° stage rising in Cape Town Stadium. Fresh photos taken earlier today http://u2.gs/iC #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@greety Snippet has been added. Thanks :)

 via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to greety

Photos from stage build in Cape Town http://u2.gs/iB #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@khoki You really only need to queue for ages if you MUST have the rail. At Melbourne 2, you could get 3rd row by arriving at 5pm. I did!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to khoki

@U2Baja Haha, no, but my field is just as pedantic as those; I’m a historian.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Baja

Alright, I’ve taken the decision to restore Scarlet to the setlist. Any complaints can go to @me_and_u2! ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So, Scarlet. @me_and_u2 says its music was done in full, no lyrics, Bono just talked. The debate about whether to include it keeps going…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Via @021jamie, Crazy Tonight had snippets of Two Tribes and Relax. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@021jamie @khoki No problems, stadium reception can sometimes be very shonky. Were there any snippets that we missed?

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to 021jamie

Via @Dutchelevation, Scarlet WAS on printed Jo’burg set, and the intro was snippeted before Walk On. Full song not played. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@U2Baja And no, doesn’t matter who was first, that was just an FYI, i.e. my pedantic specialty. :)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Baja

@U2Baja Anyway, must bow out, no ill feeling to you, know you do your best. As for U2.com itself though… I think my opinions are wellknown

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Baja

@U2Baja You originally said U2.com, which is what I’m commenting on. By the way, the live audio was begun by gorman on Interference.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Baja

@wxander Exactly. As long as U2.com keep offering presales, they can be totally shit and people will keep subscribing. (cc @EveryBrokenWave)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

@EveryBrokenWave There are still thousands of U2 fans out there who’ll throw money at anything. A few people getting pissy won’t change that

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@EveryBrokenWave I see no reason to believe U2.com will cease being the joke it has been for the past decade. LN has made it worse.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@U2Baja I accept you can’t do much beyond modding the discussion there, I just don’t think U2.com deserves credit for giving fans live sets.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Baja

@U2Baja I don’t like that U2.com’s idea of letting fans have live sets is to link to us without lifting a finger to make our role easier.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to U2Baja

@EveryBrokenWave I’m not taking shots at @U2Baja, just commenting on one particular claim that I think is outright false.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

@U2Baja U2.com has just mooched off the work of us, @atu2, @u2tour, etc. I think it’s very poor form.

 via web in reply to U2Baja

@U2Baja Not to get involved in this argument, but it’s specious to claim U2.com has helped fans transmit live setlists/audio/anything.

 via web in reply to U2Baja

Thanks for joining us for the show; good to see all of you again for another year! This is Ax, signing off for today.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2’s full Johannesburg setlist, info, etc.: http://u2.gs/iA #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Thanks to @Dutchelevation, @elvetio, and the hordes on Twitter for reporting from the show tonight! #U2360SA

 via web

There we go, that’s it for night 1 of 2011! Next stop: Cape Town on the 18th. Updating setlist article now. #U2360SA

 via web

22nd and presumably last song of the night is Moment Of Surrender. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

.@Dutchelevation echoes @U2tour that North Star was just Bono and Edge. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

21st song of the night is With Or Without You. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Re: North Star, full band or not, @elvetio insists it was full band. Let’s hope we get some video soon! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So, correct setlist numbering: 16. SBS, 17. Walk On / Tutu break / 18. One, 19. Streets / break / 20. HMTMKMKM. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

OK, @Dutchelevation confirms THERE WAS NO SCARLET. :( What a bummer. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Second encore begins with Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, awww yeah! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@u2tour Can your source confirm or deny whether Scarlet was played?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2tour According to our source at the concert North Star was not played full band. Only Bono and Edge as always. #u2360 #u2360sa

 via ÜberSocialOrig (retweeted on 10:03 PM, Feb 13th, 2011  via web)

@elvetio Was Scarlet done? Another Twitterer says it wasn’t.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Amazing Grace snippet leads from One into the next song, Where The Streets Have No Name. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Tutu speech on screen as usual, now One to open encore. Still awaiting clarification on Scarlet. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

OK, hang on, confusion reigns. Scarlet may NOT have been done after all. Some sources report it, another says it wasn’t done. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Dutchelevation No Scarlet? @elvetio said there was …

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Via @Dutchelevation, Walk On has You’ll Never Walk Alone snippet at the end. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

I honestly was skeptical Scarlet would remain until the end of the Aussie leg, so very happy it has stayed all the way to Africa. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@FernandoDante Most shows this tour have been U2360city, e.g. we had U2360Perth, so I expect U2360Santiago, etc.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to FernandoDante

Walk On presumably end of the main set, full set so far here: http://u2.gs/iA with thanks mainly to @elvetio and @Dutchelevation #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Yep, looks like 17th was Scarlet, 18th Walk On. Thrilled Scarlet is still in the set, love that song. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

U2 are up to Walk On now. Don’t know if Scarlet was beforehand or not, awaiting confirmation. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Am I the only person who’s finding the #U2360SA tag chaotic and messy?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Images from Egypt and Tunisia on screen during SBS. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Sunday Bloody Sunday clocks in at 16th in the set. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@EBTTReal_KS The Boots remix was one with the Soweto Gospel Choir.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EBTTReal_KS

Crazy Tonight remix still rockin’ 360. Here it is as 15th song of the setlist. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

14th of course is Vertigo. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@EveryBrokenWave I’m honestly surprised the set has changed at all, given how in-isolation these shows are.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to EveryBrokenWave

13th is City Of Blinding Lights. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@Galeongirl I can’t believe they’ve stuck with it. Especially after rehearsing Kite yesterday…

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to Galeongirl

If you are catching up, full Jo’burg set so far is here: http://u2.gs/iA #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

12th is Miss Sarajevo. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@skid63 It’s short for “Republic of South Africa”.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to skid63

So much for yesterday’s hopes that In A Little While was gone. Here it is, 11th song of the night. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

North Star was full band for the first time (via @elvetio). Finally! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

I hope I’m not the only person who thinks of South Australia when they see “SA”. South Africa is RSA to me.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Tenth is Pride. Unsurprising that it has been dusted off for RSA. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Ninth song is unreleased track North Star! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Trumpeter Hugh Masekela has joined U2 on stage. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@elvetio I once tricked Interference with a whole fake gig. I love people.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Looks like 8th song is I Still Haven’t Found after a Bono speech. In case anybody missed, reports U2 played The Wanderer are FALSE. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@elvetio U2 fans can be so gullible. What was actually after UTEOTW? Twitter’s gone haywire with this Wanderer business, hahaha!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to elvetio

And yet nobody ever fell for it when I claimed U2 were playing J. Swallow or Cartoon World…! ;)

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@elvetio I thought it was pretty clearly a joke…!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Somebody’s made a joke that U2 played The Wanderer and other people have believed it. Oh dear. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

7th is Until The End Of The World. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Sixth song is Elevation. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fifth is Mysterious Ways. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Fourth is Magnificent. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Tonight is the first night a non-new song (i.e. not unreleased or from last album) has opened a full U2 gig since 1990-01-10. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Third song, first “new” one of the set, is Get On Your Boots - live this time rather than remix! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Our article with the full live setlist from Jo’burg is here: http://u2.gs/iA #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Hang on a minute, @me_and_u2 confirms NO SPACE ODDITY before the Boots remix.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

I Will Follow is second song. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Space Oddity, by the sounds of it, was before the Boots remix, so evidently Stingray Guitar has been replaced with a taped remix. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

You read that right, that’s a new intro for the tour. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Get On Your Boots Remix for band entry, band themselves start with Beautiful Day. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Alright, here we go, it’s showtime in Jo’burg! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Claims that tonight’s attendance is going to top 120,000 people. I, for one, will wait for the official boxscore… #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@947Highveld Not quite. Biggest U2 gig ever was Reggio Emilia, Italy in 1997 with 150,000+.

 via web in reply to 947Highveld

@theseanmcgee Given some of the new limits 1000mikes has imposed on accounts there now, they’re not as useful as they were anyway.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to theseanmcgee

Sounds like the organisation at the merch and drinks stands leaves something to be desired … #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Not long now until U2 will be on stage. For the record, I don’t know of any live streams yet. #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@wxander Things are usually OK before the gig even in venues with the worst reception. When the band goes on stage? Networks implode.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to wxander

@SeattleB Hey, how’s it going? Not sure we’ll have a live feed; phone reception there is bad so I’m worried even text updates may be sparse.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to SeattleB

@JoeriHarcksen No. Phone reception there is bad; worried even text updates will be intermittent.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to JoeriHarcksen

Via @elvetio, today’s #U2360SA soundcheck was just crew. COBL, Streets, B Day, and piano of Miss S.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So, here we are, 360 begins for another year. Springbok Nude Girls are on stage now, Amadou & Mariam played earlier, and soon U2! #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@021jamie It’s easy to get into the inner circle even if you arrive at 5-6pm. We did it throughout Europe and Australia.

 via web in reply to 021jamie

@FernandoDante Since it’s been done on every tour apart from this, I think they should bring back other JT songs first; Exit, God’s Country.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to FernandoDante

@ZooPony Yesss. Here’s hoping it has been cut!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ZooPony

Many thanks in particular to @elvetio for soundcheck reports!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Soundcheck reports from Johannesburg, yesterday and today: http://u2.gs/iz #U2360SA

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@atu2 Good point! Wish we could confirm the songs supposedly done though.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to atu2

@S_Hiroe I’m not able to go to any shows yet this year … Matt may be, I can’t remember!

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to S_Hiroe

@hpalvarez That would be very nice if you could. :)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to hpalvarez

@021jamie @khoki Would be fantastic if you could tweet the set, thanks! :)

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to 021jamie

Worried we may be short of sources for the South African gigs. We couldn’t go. Anybody out there going to be tweeting the set?

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Got a couple of messages suggesting soundchecking in South Africa was mainly/solely crew. Details still scant & unconfirmed.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@ScottSextastic Yeah, got a couple of other messages suggesting it was crew.

 via U2gigs (Ax) in reply to ScottSextastic

The unconfirmed rehearsal report on Interference includes EBTTRT (instrumental) yet again, a few NLOTH songs, Vertigo, etc.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

There are some reports there was a soundcheck in South Africa tonight … waiting for confirmation though.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

So, rumour has it there will be a fourth Brazilian show. Sao Paulo or elsewhere? Don’t know yet.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@markino77bg They’re rumours about a new album in May at the moment. We will see what happens.

 via U2gigs (Matt) in reply to markino77bg

Re: McGuinne$$ “confirming” new album in May, I’ll believe it when I have it! Been so many cockteases this past decade…

 via U2gigs (Ax)

Remember last year’s gag about 360 being a rain dance? Hey, U2, you didn’t need to bring Australia THIS MUCH water!

 via U2gigs (Ax)

All the best to our followers in North Queensland; stay safe! Went through cyclones in my time in QLD and know how scary it can be.

 via U2gigs (Ax)

@hillcrestella My bet, if the tour continues beyond Moncton, is another European leg.
