Canada votes in an election on Monday; which U2 song best fits each Party/leader?
Lots of suggestions of Dirty Day; seems to be a popular wish among fans to see that song back!
2 weeks to go until the final leg of the U2 360 Tour. What are your setlist predictions?
@musedvdbr I was mainly talking about the lossless version. I would prefer to do this myself. Mp3 is ok.
@andrewsfg No need to feel guilty. We should just have talked about it in more detail before. Everything is ok :)
@andrewsfg Removing it was not required. I should have been clearer. Feel free to put the mp3 versions up. I’ll do the lossless stuff then.
@musedvdbr mp3 is fine for me but I’d prefer to share the lossless versions myself. I was just a bit surprised to find it on several boards.
@andrewsfg I’ve given you the audio for the Muse SP DVD project and nothing else.
Gam 7 in Vancouver and I’m already rocking out to Streets!
@musedvdbr You’re welcome. I’ll add the uncut Muse audio tracks from SP over the weekend. Might be useful for the project.
On Sao Paulo show 1+2 shirts were 30€ and for the last show all shirts were discounted at 17€ and they had this new one in yellow.
The first merch item arrived at the u2.com shop: http://u2.gs/jQ It’s the yellow shirt which I only saw at the 3rd show in Sao Paulo.
@erick__leandro In the end it was a quite different experience with all things around the shows as well that made the trip well worth it.
@erick__leandro There is a difference between the SA countries but hard to describe them. With this said I can’t tell a best or worst show.
@erick__leandro All SA audiences were on a high level. We’ve got this elsewhere from time to time but not 7 shows in a row.
Still lots of disappointment over Duals it seems. Glad that I’m not the only one! (Staring at the sun, afraid of what you’d find…) #duals
So for those who have received and listened to Duals… your opinions on the content? Any damage? Anything new worth listening to?
@hpalvarez Passengers was the whole project; U2, Brian Eno, Pavarotti, Holi, Howie B, etc. They were collectively known as Passengers
@captainrobs The only feelings I have towards Duals are disdain and disgust
@captainrobs To let people know that it has arrived outside of the US, as I said in the first tweet.
Though out of curioisity; why are Passengers and Pavarotti both listed on the cover? It’s the same collaboration
Sending it back to Principle Management with that letter I drafted a few months ago.
Oh, and the casing was damaged. Score one for LiveNation
U2 Duals is arriving outside of the US; just got mine up in Canada. Not that I particularly care.
@Fifer_Pixelania No, I can’t make it to Mexico.
@Fifer_Pixelania Most likely she will not hear much if anything at all … It does work from your pocket the same way so you can try.
@ZOomDG ISO as low as possible makes no sense to me in this listing. Everything else does but don’t wanted to go into deep detail here.
@ZooBaby91 And the called person can’t hear Bono either. Concerts are way too loud for a normal mobile phone.
A mobile does NOT sound any better if you hold it closer to the PA (eg. as high as you can) in a concert during a call to someone…
My quick concert photo advice: turn off flash, set ISO high and hold cam not higher than required. You’ll obstruct view for others behind…
@Pandora Just click on the listing and you’ll see what happend :)
@beezee05 Matt is; Ax is in Australia. I’ve done a few setlists for them and am in Canada.
@rebjan Streets. The Canucks step onto the ice to it every home game.
@Trap_33 I’ll look forward to seeing them :)
@Drea104 Originally from the Toronto area. I keep it quiet usually; I like my head where it is :)
@Trap_33 Much obliged :). I’ll take Habs over Sens (and Bruins) any day.
PS: My team is the Leafs; what is yours? #breakfromU2
And I seem to hear Desire at some point almost every game. That plus Vertigo for the Habs; Canadian NHL teams sure love their U2!
@Trap_33 I did. Love hockey; my team is the Leafs. :)
Anyone watching the Canucks-Blackhawks playoff game? You may recognize the song they play when stepping on the ice #U2inVancouver
Here’s a pretty awesomely edited video of Zooropa live; it’s quite the spectacle! http://www.youtube.com/w…
Second, videos from Sao Paulo 3 and thanks to Matt for all his work after his last 360 show: http://u2.gs/thx
2 new articles on U2gigs. First, Bono, Edge, Larry, and Muse’s Dom celebrate after Sao Paulo 3 with some covers: http://u2.gs/jN
@S_Hiroe We have about 10 hours so it should work :)
@FernandoDante I think u2chile had a link. Something good should appear soon.
@S_Hiroe Oh yes we have :) 3 1/2 weeks I’ll never forget. Back to a more normal life and day job now …
@FernandoDante Yes we are. But as we have to check out I’m not sure if we do much on our last day.
@S_Hiroe We are leaving tomorrow in the late evening.
@FernandoDante Yes, will get back to you when I’m home in a few days.
Bono let a kid run around the catwalk at the start of Vertigo. That’s why he said “Go, go, go” a few times.
@u2_news Thank you, added both snips. :)
@golden254 We will have setlist but not be on site in person for the NA shows.
So this was my last 360° show today. I’ve seen 7 really great shows here in South America. Eu Fui!!
By the way, remember this? http://u2.gs/666 Well, Das Model just clocked in as song 777 added to U2gigs. Heh.
@warkoholic Woops, thanks for pointing that out, it’s corrected now. :)
And thanks to @u2gigs for giving me the chance to help them out this leg. Matkin out!
Buenas noches! (Or is it ‘Buenos’? I can never remember). Either way, have a great month!
Thanks for a great night, everyone. We’ll see you all again in about a month when the final leg kicks off in Mexico City! #U2360BRA
Hey, good news everybody! Axver is back! Once he’s written up the mainpage article he’ll give you all your cookies! #U2360BRA
Either the band is collapsing and misplaying every night, or there’s been a hell of a mistake in the dying seconds of the concert #U2360BRA
Wow, my live feed suddenly warped out of all recognition! Anyone else get that? #U2360BRA
OKAY, I ADMIT IT! MANY OF YOU BEAT ME TO THE PUNCH WITH WOWY! BUT YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR COOKIES BECAUSE I ATE THEM ALL!
@_Dream_Out_Loud You’d better wear some kevlar then, just to be safe! :P
@StrongGirl I ate it. I was hungry.
Moment of Surrender dedicated to the victims of the shooting in Rio
Bono gives a shout out to @Sillywhite
Moment of Surrender. I think that will be it for the night, if tradition holds. #U2360BRA
Sorry, but nobody gets a cookie because I didn’t see any guesses before the song started. Now to run and hide, and take the cookies with me!
So Cruel or Drowning Man would work well in this slot I think. But now I’m just being picky. #U2360BRA
A cookie to everyone who guessed With or Without You. #U2360BRA
Can anyone guess what is next? #U2360BRA
I do like the way they use the strings from the studio version in the live setting. Haunting. #U2360BRA
Lots of debate over the best lead in to Streets. I think I know what to ask next time I tweet a concert! ;) #U2360BRA
@Gravy1199 What is the score?
Showime folks! #U2360BRA
I wonder if the Batman people realize that Bono is still plugging The Dark Knight? #U2360BRA
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, with the usual Joker shoutout; “Why so serious?” #U2360BRA
And of course, now the aliens tour our solar system and have to dodge @u2360claw, who so inconsiderately runs them off the, err, road?
Bono really plugging Muse. “Make love to Muse!” #U2360BRA
I have to say though, All I Want Is You works much better than Amazing Grace. #U2360BRA
@TheWolverine99 Not as high as mine were I bet :P
It was still quite beautiful to hear it. But the full song would have been so much better. They actually work nicely together #U2360BRA
Damn, just a segue. #U2360BRA
Is it the full song, or just a new segue into Streets? #U2360BRA
All I Want Is You! #U2360BRA
Nope, definitely One; can hear it in the background. #U2360BRA
Of course, we all know that this will lead into One. Unless they’ve decided to surprise us and revert to Streets. #U2360BRA
Desmond Tutu will be next
@leoescorsim Oh, I thought they’d closed that loophole.
@atu2 Must have. I’ve been inundated and distracted on my regular Twitter by the Canadian election debates :P
@jmerino82 I’m just hearing a clicking. Not running anything else and it wasn’t present until the end of Sunday Bloody Sunday. Not audience
The only question now is if Ultraviolet or Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me will open encore #2
Regardless of strange background noises, the band continue and head into Walk On. #U2360BRA
Odd clicking in the background now. #U2360BRA
Scarlet. Will he sing it tonight? #U2360BRA
@liz_lemon_ We don’t know for sure that it will be on DVD, or even CD. Could be an online download, or just an EP, or nothing at all
Bono really wants to dance. And that leads us into Sunday Bloody Sunday #U2360BRA
@salveardilla Depends on how big the fan is. Loads of people that show up at the concerts won’t tune in for a live stream or set updates
Bono’s voice is kind of all over the place tonight. one moment he’s struggling, the next he hits notes perfectly. #U2360BRA
I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight [U2360 Remix] #U2360BRA
I know it’s only Rock n’ roll! #U2360BRA
@liz_lemon_ In all fairness, how many people would know it? It’s pretty obscure for U2
EBTTRT-IWF-Boots-Mag-MW-Elevation-UTEOTW-ISHFWILF-Pride-The Model (with Seu Jorge)-BD-Miss Sarajevo-Zooropa-COBL #U2360BRA
Apologies for the lack of a mainpage set at the moment; Ax is at work. The setlist thus far is…:
And one of my favourite songs segues in; City of Blinding Lights #U2360BRA
“I hear voices; ridiculous voices!” #U2360BRA
@u2tour Oops. My bad!
Fifth ever performance of Zooropa. That guitar is breathtaking. I never dreamed that I’d ever hear it this good. Did you? #U2360BRA
I do like how they have kept Fez in the questions too. #U2360BRA
Zooropa! Vorspring Durch Technik! Zooropa! Be all that you can be! #U2360BRA
Zooropa or City of Blinding Lights? That is the big question now.
Ouch, Bono’s voice faded quite badly there. Nice recovery though; hope it was just the mic. #U2360BRA
“They say like a river you flow to the sea; and so like a river you flow back to me.” Is my non-existant Italian right? #U2360BRA
It is indeed Miss Sarajevo! Keep your ears peeled for the next song ;) #U2360BRA
There’s a snip of something in there, but too quiet for me to tell what it is. #U2360BRA
Now, will the next song be Miss Sarajevo or the reviled In a Little While? #U2360BRA
Thanks to everyone who tweeted with The Model! #U2360BRA
This intro is much better than the one they usually have in front of it. Build you up so much more. #U2360BRA
RT @EdgeFest en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_Model This is the song
Beautiful Day; still with the revisited Celtic intro #U2360BRA
I have to say, this song is quite lovely. Unexpected, but lovely. Guess that means no North Star tonight! #U2360BRA
Whether that is the actual name of the song, I do not know. #U2360BRA
I wish I could tell you what this song is, but I do not know. It is Jorge’s song I think. seeing some call it The Model. #U2360BRA
Next song is a duet by the sounds of it? With Seu Jorge. #U2360BRA
Tweetdeck says my tweet stream is being throttled. Oh dear.
Nope, it is Pride! #U2360BRA
So what will be next? A new song? Stuck? Beautiful Day? An old rarity? #U2360BRA
If I may return to the nightly speech, Bono’s comments certainly indicate that this show will resurface in some form in the future #U2360BRA
“I have kissed honey lips; felt the healing in her finger tips.” #U2360BRA
The audience really carries this song. Is there any other song they could perform like this? #U2360BRA
Oh yeah, and they’ve started I Still Haven’t Found too. #U2360BRA
“(But don’t tell our manager I said that)!” #U2360BRA
Bono talking about the broadcast, saying that this show will last forever as a memento. “Please download it” he says. #U2360BRA
“Usually we put on a show for our audience, but here you put on a show for us” #U2360BRA
“Usually we sing to our audience, but here our audience sings to us” #U2360BRA
Hey @u2360claw, Bono said he hopes the audience like you!
Bono thanking Muse for joining them in South America. #U2360BRA
Next up is the nightly Bono speech
By which I mean that I flashed back to it; I doubt that he did :P #U2360BRA
You believe, Bono? What do you believe in? (Total flashback to Mirrorball Man Desire) #U2360BRA
“Waves of regret, waves of joy; I reached out for the one I tried to destroy. You… you said you’d wait until the end of the world”
Doesn’t Bono normally save the intros for ISHFWILF, which is probably next? Will he introduce them again? Or has it been dropped? #U2360BRA
Any Anthem snips tonight? #U2360BRA
One of the truly great rock songs; little stumble by The Edge there though! Even the errors sound awesome #U2360BRA
Next up: Until the End of the World #U2360BRA
This fade out in Elevation is almost as long as the song… #U2360BRA
Has anybody actually seen a mole digging a hole? I did once; it was very cool. Apparently you almost never see them on the surface
Between the concert and the debate, my Tweetdeck is going absolutely bonkers!
Next is Elevation #U2360BRA
I do wonder what the acoustic version they rehearsed in 2009 sounded like… would have been interesting to say the least! #U2360BRA
It’s alright, it’s alright! Johnny, the fifth song is Mysterious Ways! #U2360BRA
@u2360claw Don’t worry dearie, you weigh several tons; one little strobelight couldn’t possibly make your bum look any bigger!
