Our Stump Ax! contest closes in just 12 hours; now is your last chance to see if you can outsmart our setlistorian! http://bit.ly/oPuYdg
For those looking forward to our podcast introspective of the U2 360 Tour… it will come in two parts. Part One has a kickass musical end.
Classic concert of the day: 2005-03-28, San Diego. Return of An Cat Dubh, Zoo Station, and Running to Stand Still. http://bit.ly/qDmpNL
@stuinboca Please use team at u2gigs.com … the old one might be outdated by now :-)
@stuinboca Yes :-)
@stuinboca Ah, now I know you :-)
@stuinboca easiest is mailing them to team at u2gigs.com
@Birdman987 When have they been mailed? I got nothing fresh here to the team address. Matt
@dieZypresse Saving for the next tour ;-)
@iambradk Just added to the set. Thank you!
@popartist61 Oh yes :) It just looked a bit weird to me as well before I checked a bit deeper. Sometimes things can go wrong with stats :)
We are still collecting photos from all U2 tours. If you want to show your concert photos on U2gigs submit them here http://u2.gs/kD
@popartist61 Just checked and it seems to be ok this way with 31 cover songs. A Gavin Friday concert in 2009 has 7 of them alone.
@popartist61 something seems to be off with your stats. I’ll look into it. Matt
@Zoomo72 That’s because the Barcelona dress rehearsal does count as various date and not a regular 360 show.
Just finished recording the first U2Gigs podcast with Ax. Nice long conversation full of rambling detours. Hope you all enjoy the edit!
@DenDen1987 They were out of time in the War sessions and needed a closing song. Adam had left so Edge picked up the bass and created 40.
@Zoomo72 I counted 15 360 dates. Where are you getting the 16th from?
@MarsGirl75 Just added to our setlist. Thanks for this!
To clarify, that last tweet is from Matkin.
Here is my fully updated personal U2 show chart (though it isn’t as impressive as some otehrs!) What is yours like?http://bit.ly/o7em6R
The tour may be over, but the fun is not! Can you Stump Ax? http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@pvree Most times, but not all from memory.
For those asking, yes, Edge and Adam did switch instruments during 40. #U2360MON
With the 360° tour just ending you might want to create or update your personal U2 show charts here http://u2.gs/myshows
Video of the speech, if anyone is interested. Last of the tour. http://www.youtube.com/w… Hoping one of 40 crops up soon
Watching a vid of the ISHF speech. Bono asks crowd to keep Ray Bailey, a trucker on the tour who was injured yesterday, in their thoughts
U2.com says Discotheque was played tonight in place of Crazy. Wouldn’t be the end of tour without one last cock-up! http://deck.ly/~6dUud
Staring at the Sun breaks the Pop trend of ‘ten less’; 130 appearances for it.
Please is the Pop song most represented at U2 concerts - including snippets, 166 appearances to 156 (Discotheque) and 146 (Gone)
Of course, that’s from known setlists.
Scarlet has now been played live more often than With a Shout or Tomorrow; just 20 back of Fire and 25 less than Rejoice
And you know it’s time to go, through the sleet and driving snow… this is Ax, signing off. See you soon, probably with a Snippetwatch!
Thanks for the advice everyone; we’ll keep you posted :)
Basically the part we are stuck on is how/where to upload it, and how to get the RSS feed thingy sorted so we can upload to iTunes
I (Ax) have been so moved by the thanks from so many of you that I couldn’t reply in 140 characters. This is my thank-you: http://u2.gs/THX
@ElevationRadio Ax: For me, nothing beats Under A Blood Red Sky. But I’m an early U2 fanboy.
Soo… we’re considering making a podcast to discuss the tour. As Ax and I are novices about this, anybody tell us how/where to upload it?
Ax: Cannot describe how weird and sad it feels to see “no upcoming shows” on our mainpage.
@atu2 40 has actually been snippeted eight times on 360, not twice. I heard it four times in Europe 2009.
@Zoomo72 Sorry I (Ax) missed your tweets earlier, had such a flurry of them I couldn’t keep up!
@viewtoakill Yes, but when it comes to IWF and OOC, those two in particular almost never appear together.
Ax: Well goddamn, now I need to re-write the show wrap-up! ;) #U2360MON
Ax: And now I just don’t know what to say at all. Not within 140 characters anyway. Thank you, all of you. #U2360MON
Ax: I’ll get the frontpage article together first. Won’t take long I hope. #U2360MON
Ax: That’s it. I don’t know quite how I feel. I’m going to need a few minutes to compose my thoughts. #U2360MON
The Tour is officially over. Hard to believe… U2 won’t light out lamps again for another few years. Who knows where we will all be then?
@carynrose Wow, that’d be awesome.
Oh yeah; and thanks U2 for having the tour in the first place! :-P #U2360END
Ax: I’m crossing fingers, toes, everything that they do something spontaneous after OOC just to dominate even more. #U2360MON
If I could name everyone who has made this tour such a joy, I’d still be here when the next one rolled around. So just a huge thanks to all
This has been an incredible experience for me and I will never forget it. Thank you all, for every night, every tweet, and every laugh
Out Of Control does indeed clock in at 25th after MOS! Awww yeah, bring on the early material. #U2360MON
Seriously… I just want to thanks Matthias and Axver for giving me a chance and bringing me on board. It’s been… I don’t have the words
@RomiTheWriter We were once U2-Vertigo-Tour.com, and before that, Elevation-Tour.com; the latter is still online, a glimpse into our past!
Hey, no worries folks. We’ll still be hear after the tour. We may not even change our name this time! #U2360MON
Will they do OOC? Will it be followed by another surprise, say an un-printed Bad/40? Time will tell… #U2360MON
I’d like to thank the acadamy… oh, err, wrong speech! Hang on a sec. Now where did I put my end of tour notes..?
Covering #U2360 just would not have been the same without your company, all the banter, questions, replies, keeping us going.
Really, really heartwarming to read all the tweets of thanks from you folks. But truly, it’s THANK YOU to all of you.
Sounds like Moment of Surrender is on now. Is this the end of #U2360MON?
@MargaretRvrWine Haha, that’s awesome. Wish I (Ax) was tweeting the show while touring wineries!
But uhoh, getting the end of the set just got a little harder… #U2360MON
HMTMKMKM into WOWY. #U2360MON
Now the tour stats pages now show specifically JUST the stats for full tour gigs, no dress rehearsals to muddy the waters.
For the record, I (Ax) just recategorised the ZooTV, Vertigo, & 360 dress rehearsals into our “Various Dates” sections.
Wonder if we’re heading towards a big close or not? Will that OOC/Bad/40 trio from NJ’s printed set crop up, maybe? That’d rule. #U2360MON
Hallelujah at the end of One leadsinto the final Streets. #U2360MON
@_Dream_Out_Loud The Rolling Stones are somehow still going and they’re 100x more decrepit than U2!
One opens the first encore. #U2360MON
RT @atu2comSherry: dude - my typing skills are atrocious tonight….i blame the lack of stream
@_Dream_Out_Loud I honestly don’t think so. The band have SO much material up their sleeves. Maybe last big stadium tour though …
Scarlet and then Walk On. #U2360MON End of the main set?
Haha, nice end-of-tour prank by the crew with THEIR faces on screen, not U2’s, in Crazy. #U2360MON
@FernandoDante Short for “For what it’s worth”
@atu2 Agreed … I (Ax) rolled my eyes when they first rehearsed it, but it’s won me over. Best it’s been in a LONG time.
Discotheque snippet as usual, and that leads into Sunday Bloody Sunday. Remember when it was played alongside Pride? #U2360MON
@colipena No stream today, unfortunately. :(
Vertigo into Crazy Tonight. Don’t hold out much hope for info on snippets this time! #U2360MON
You just can’t top City of Blinding Lights as the big visual moment of the night #U2360MON
@danjukic I was surprised they didn’t make more use of the Claw with Zooropa, but I guess it arrived too late in the game.
@danjukic Oh that was mean, haha! God, what WERE they thinking.
@danjukic Haha … I’ve luckily long since forgotten the movie, so I don’t get the flashbacks!
City of Blinding Lights is next. Hope this is back next tour! #U2360MON
Okay, so Elevation had a drum solo at the end and is followed by Pride, Miss Sarajevo, and the futuristic Zooropa #U2360MON
@danjukic Really? HMTMKMKM is one of my highlights, given how hard it rocks. Was thrilled when it knocked off UV.
Ahh, this reminds me so much of my debut night; no stream and barely a trickle of information from the venue! #U2360MON
One report of Miss Sarajevo. So… did they skip Pride? Is there anything else missing? Hard to tell tonight! #U2360MON
(Though LWTUA was snippeted at Glasto earlier this year, so all is not quite lost for it.) #U2360
Unless Bono snippets it tonight, this tour will be the first to not have a Love Will Tear Us Apart snip since its JT Tour debut. #U2360
(FWIW, I’m not surprised Moncton is getting the usual standard set. Never been to this neck of the woods after all!) #U2360MON
Soooo… what follows Elevation?. Any predictions? #U2360MON
@danjukic I honestly won’t be shocked if it’s never played again. Or played at the first few shows of the next tour, then quietly vanishes.
I’d like to give a few thanks out to all of you for making it such an awesome tour.
@popartist61 Amen! And they have to play it in Australia, just because I say so.
@danjukic It was the only song they did at Glasto that they really didn’t seem committed to (until Bono amped up in “let me in the sound”).
@danjukic I honestly feel that at this point of the tour, they kind of feel “obliged” to play Boots since it was the lead single.
@u2fanz Quite correct re: BDay.
It helps when Ax is on the phone and missing the twitter updates! #U2360MON
Matkin’s getting good at beating me to this snippetry thing nowadays! #U2360MON
Space Oddity snippet at the end of Beautiful Day. #U2360MON
Space Oddity snippet as usual, leading into Elevation (we think) #U2360MON
@Alisaura I think Magnif may have a chance next tour … I feel like it’s just been pushed out than dropped now. Breathe? UC? So dead.
@patrickmoraes_ Pop had lots of songs on the next tour. Discotheque, Gone, Staring, Please, and Dead Man all showed up on Elevation
@marinapompeu Yep, once as a remix in its usual main-set spot, then again in the encore in “normal” guise.
Last U2 lead single not played at every show of debut tour? Desire. It missed one Lovetown gig.
RT @neil_mccormick: At the end of Beautiful Day, Bono sings “tell my wife I love her very much, she knows … Neil McCormick told her!”
Matkin is surprised it was played at every gig; only other NLOTH song to do that is Crazy Tonight!
Unlike other recent lead singles, I (Ax) don’t see Boots surviving as a regular next tour. #U2360MON
Ax: I fervently hope this show is NOT the end of Zooropa live. Rest of the world needs to hear it next tour. #U2360MON
Beautiful Day is next we hear
@u2_news We’ve always listed it as Springhill Mining Disaster. Could go as either, like Party Girl vs Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl
Some songs that are played tonight might never be played again. Which ones will fade into memory? #U2360MON
SpringHill Mining Disaster is snippeted. First performance in any form since 1987. #U2360MON
It’s ISHF. Will my earlier prediction hold up? Will Springhill be a surprise next? #U2360MON
Sounds as if Bono is undergoing his speech for the final time. ISHFWILF or AIWIY? #U2360MON
RT @neil_mccormick: Bono: “18 babies have been born on the 360 tour, 2 inter crew marriages, 8 separations, over 7 million served …”
Let’s not try not to think about the lack of a stream tonight; remember all the other nights we were lucky enough to have one! #U2360MON
Boots is sixth. Will Magnificent make a last-gasp appearance tonight? #U2360MON
I Will Follow is fifth. #U2360MON
Oh, and Until The End Of The World has clocked in at 4th. #u2360mon
@atu2 Neil McCormick tweeted that it was The Fly.
Sick of the spam and suchforth cluttering the #U2360MON feed.
At this stage, there is NO legit stream from Moncton. :( #U2360MON
The Fly is second, followed by Mysterious Ways in third. #U2360MON
People, the u2man_on_air user on 1000mikes is a notorious fake. Ignore his stream. #U2360MON
@smili72 Thank you very much! It’s been two very good years.
@iambradk That guy’s a fake, why would you want that?
Even Better Than the Real Thing opens
