Just thinking how weird it is that MOTD was played this tour in Turkey, Switzerland, and Germany but not in Chile or Argentina!
Matt has confirmed that Sólo Le Pido A Dios should be counted as a separate song in the set, not as an ISHFWILF snip. #u2360arg
@MemphisMullen Have them both. Bad will be uploaded first now.
We will take a break in Rio the next few days so we have to get up early tomorrow. More videos to follow in 1 or 2 days.
Excellent show tonight here in La Plata. Will prepare 2 or 3 videos for Youtube now. #U2360ARG
That’s it for me, Ax. Stunned the set has now got down to just 3 NLOTH songs. Over to Matt and his videos! #u2360arg
@Hoosier2012 No, it’s three. :) Boots, Crazy Tonight, and Moment Of Surrender.
RT @FioU2 Info about Sólo Le Pido a Dios: only León Gieco sang the song. Meanwhile, Bono played the guitar and was sort of a backup singer.
Here we go, 25th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender. #u2360arg
@lauchalau Should be.
24th is With Or Without You. #u2360arg
@siders_mus I’m just stunned U2.com got something completely right for a change!
Here’s the final spoiler realised! 23rd song of the night, first of the 2nd encore is… Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me! #u2360arg
@siders_mus Yeah, not many though. 3 shows in 2010 reached the 25 song mark.
@FioU2 One of my favourites. Been watching my DVDs of it a lot lately. “I LOVE MY BRICK!!!”
I wish U2 would stun us and play I Threw A Brick so that we can make awesome Father Jack jokes (as in from TV show Father Ted). #u2360arg
Er, last tweets should read 21. One and 22. Streets. Unless of course Solo Le Pido A Dios was just a snip, of course! Zuh. #u2360arg
Ooh, yes, the Mothers snippet returns, seguing into 21st song of the night, Streets. #u2360arg
@MarsGirl75 Gloria would be perfect. I know it’d never happen, but I’d love Rejoice, Tomorrow, and Brick. Especially Rejoice.
So, will the Mothers snip re-appear in the segue to Streets? #u2360arg
First song of the encore, 20th of the night, is One. #u2360arg
@MarsGirl75 Setlist needs MOAR OCTOBER SONGS.
You’ll Never Walk Alone snippet at the end of Walk On. Time to hand over to Bishop Tutu… #u2360arg
So Bono’s actually sung Scarlet’s single lyric of “rejoice” tonight instead of just talking over the band! #u2360arg
19th is Scarlet, leading into 20th, Walk On. #u2360arg
@atu2 Exactly. As for now, this is why it’s good we’re both doing this: people can choose between your cautious approach or my bold one! ;)
Two Tribes snip at end of Crazy, now up to 18th, Sunday Bloody Sunday. #u2360arg
@atu2 Matt’s phone is unfortunately down, or else I’d get confirmation from him now!
@atu2 Fair enough, though I think it would be kind of weird for somebody to come on to sing just a snippet.
@FioU2 Pretty normal snip for Crazy, so seems plausible that it happened.
17th is Crazy Tonight. #u2360arg
@hpalvarez I really, really wish I could’ve seen it live! Can’t believe they didn’t do it in Europe, where crowds would’ve loved it.
COBL is of course followed by Vertigo, 16th song of the night. #u2360arg
@hpalvarez The astronaut bit was so much better with Your Blue Room anyway!
@atu2 You not counting Sólo Le Pido A Dios for now?
15th is City Of Blinding Lights. #u2360arg
@racso2099 Cut from the setlist for the first time this tour!
@quadcaster Yep, and on IALW too!
Righto, back, sorry about that. In my absence, the band moved onto 14th, Miss Sarajevo. #u2360arg
Sorry folks, please excuse me for a few minutes. I’ll be back soon and will update with anything missed.
13th is In A Little While. (Early info suggests Sólo Le Pido A Dios was done in full, not 100% confirmed.) #u2360arg
@FioU2 No problem, just let us know when you have confirmation. :)
@u2peacegirl Sort of is, since U2 haven’t bothered to resurrect Pride for other notable occasions in the past. eg Skipped it 10 years ago.
Kind of unclear whether we should be counting Sólo Le Pido A Dios as full song or snippet of ISHFWILF or what…? #u2360arg
And after that, a couple of surprises … Pride, after missing two shows, and then BAD! First time for Bad in 2011. #u2360arg
Furthermore, Sólo le Pido a Dios was dedicated to those who died in the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas War. #u2360arg
@FioU2 As a snippet of ISHFWILF, or full song …?
Argentinian singer León Gieco is on stage. #u2360arg
Ninth is I Still Haven’t Found after some speechifying. #u2360arg
@bono_212 This is going to be epic.
@EveryBrokenWave All four had that, but since it’s a cover, I don’t think it should be factored into calculations much, if at all.
For comparison, on Vertigo, there were four shows with just 3 HTDAAB songs, though at 3 of those shows they added Window In The Skies.
I was wondering when 360 would drop to a record low of just 3 NLOTH songs and it looks like tonight may be the night… #u2360arg
Eighth is UTEOTW. #U2360ARG
@siders_mus Matt being the one who does all our videos. :)
@EdgeFest It’s a staggering lapse isn’t it! Clearly it’s just programmed in and sent public too early.
@siders_mus Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention, can’t believe U2.com don’t realise they’re posting this too early!
@siders_mus Ah cool, Matt will be there too. I (Ax) can’t make it. And yes, this’ll be the first time Magnif will be missed!
@EdgeFest Awesome! :)
Sixth song of the night is Mysterious Ways, NOT Magnificent! #u2360arg
OK folks, I have a bit of a setlist spoiler. Won’t post it on Twitter, but I’ll put it on the U2gigs article in a couple of mins. #u2360arg
@siders_mus Wow, yeah, I see it there. Way to go U2.com!
@siders_mus Ahh interesting, will have a look.
Look what’s still in the set: fifth is Even Better Than The Real Thing! #u2360arg
@siders_mus Really, where is it on there?
Fourth is Boots. #u2360arg
So while we’re predicting things, let me look further into the future and tip NYD rather than IWF for Sao Paulo 1.
Well shit, my prediction of BD + possible Stingray came true! #u2360arg
@EdgeFest Haha yes I predicted BD with possible Stingray here and Interference!
@siders_mus Oooh, interesting. You’ve seen the printed setlist?
And up second? It’s Beautiful Day, back to its old spot. #u2360arg
First song of the night is… the return of Return Of The Stingray Guitar! #u2360arg
Here we gooo! Space Oddity cranking over the PA. #u2360arg
@atu2 Yeah, instead of Wellington, I’d be happy for U2 to try to fit onto my balcony. It’s probably bigger than some Boy Tour stages! ;)
@hpalvarez Ooh, I’m all for anything influenced by UF! Will give it a listen sometime. :)
@hpalvarez Oh I know, the title was just too much to fit in the tweet. 140 characters = not enough! ;)
@atu2 Wellington, New Zealand. Always wanted to hear One Tree Hill in my hometown. Was way too young to go in November 1989!
@marinapompeu Yeah, Matt and I (Ax) were at all 3 nights in Dublin 2009. Just Matt in Brazil this time though.
@FioU2 The only show there has been a stream for this year was Santiago. :(
@FioU2 Damn. :( Matt’s got no working network either. We might’ve tried to do an audio feed if he could!
What’s this rumour on Twitter in the last few mins that Stingray and Bad were soundchecked today? Is somebody just making shit up? #u2360arg
Before anybody asks, no, I haven’t yet seen any word about a live stream tonight. #u2360arg
Tonight may well be the night all the rain snippets return in 2011… #u2360arg
@u2wanderer Given the bigger than usual gap between nights one and two, I kind of feel like this is a 2nd night too!
@marinapompeu Matt is, yes.
@atu2 Everything’s scheduled half an hour earlier tonight. Assuming all goes to plan, and we know all about the best laid plans…
@wxander Surely it can’t be too hard for them to bring back NLOTH (the song) as a third night treat!
OK folks, Muse finished their opening set about 5-10 minutes ago, I think. Hopefully not too long until U2 are on! #u2360arg
@u2wanderer Hehe. La Plata 1 was on 30/03, then La Plata 2 yesterday.
That must be one of the best U2 April Fools articles I’ve ever seen. It had me convinced until I saw the date!
@ZooPony Possible that they’ve soundchecked in private. They did that before playing surprises in Brussels and Coimbra.
Maybe change my prediction from Pride to Bad. I doubt any extra NLOTH songs; Breathe/UC/NLOTH seem long gone from the set. #u2360arg
Any guesses for surprises? Dublin 3 taught us not to expect TOO much on 3rd nights. I say BD open, Mercy & Pride midset, EBTTRT open encore.
@chlcrk I miss when they got that intense live …
@chlcrk Yeah, Gone’s one of my top 10 U2 songs. But I don’t think it improved THAT much live, while Mofo was just off-the-hook on Popmart.
So folks, looks like just a crew soundcheck today, and the weather’s been a bit wet in La Plata. Time for night 3! #u2360arg
@chlcrk For me (Ax), it’d be Gone … or Mofo. Probably Mofo actually.
@wind_mill_lane There was a single day’s rest between each show in Boston, May 2005, not two consecutive days like in this case.
