Sounds like not much action in Vancouver today. On the upside our formatting’s fixed so you can catch up on all news: http://www.u2gigs.com/
Also, some formatting on our site seems to have gone a bit awry today. Sorry - we will get it fixed ASAP.
@IamVal Yep. Personally, I’d love the return of the ZooTV solo. Honestly, anything but the Vertigo Tour solo!
@KUEFC At least the GAs left/right now make sense as well. I hope it works out for all viewing angels.
@ac_83 I bloody hope so! But no rumours as yet.
@TopATerreros Cheers, just saw it and posting it on the site now!
@JeffReinhart77 You will be relieved: Streets was rehearsed today. I’ll have a report up on the site soon.
@JoeriHarcksen Oh, and forgot to reply to your other question - no support act news yet. Very strange.
@mjpisaturo Strategy for tour schedule this year is lots of shows in select markets. Rumoured 2016 leg will prob hit other major markets.
@JoeriHarcksen As rehearsals go on/more info comes to light, I’ll keep a running list.
@JoeriHarcksen The amount of songs known to be rehearsed so far isn’t long - can be fairly easily picked up from our articles so far.
@TrailerTrsh No, my tour starts later. But 2 of my friends are going :)
@TrailerTrsh Hey Jason, haven’t noticed this so far. Do you still have problems? I’ve tried but it seems to work. Post me a link please.
@JeffReinhart77 I honestly wouldn’t expect to have a good idea of everything in contention or setlist order until they move to Rogers Arena.
@JeffReinhart77 I’d like to believe by now they needn’t rehearse Streets! But then you’d think they do Pride, BD, Elev in their sleep too.
@TrailerTrsh …went on stage a bit after midnight. When it’s an unscheduled misc date like Bono at a pub, we tend to give the actual date.
@TrailerTrsh Hah yeah it’s a bit dicey with this stuff. When there’s an officially published date, we usually stick to that even if they…
@TrailerTrsh But we have a couple of friends in Vancouver. And I’ll get Matt to check on the broken links. :)
@TrailerTrsh Yep, U2’s only previous Forum performance was 1986-06-06 on Conspiracy of Hope. Neither Matt nor I (Ax) are going to Vancouver.
@ryannichols7 Some people on Interference are speculating there won’t be an opener too. I’d be very surprised - but starting to wonder…!
@_Shannon387 Rehearsals reported in late afternoon/early evening, but I’m not sure if there’s a regular time or if you take your chances.
@enjoytheclaw November counts! Source claims NO Dec shows, but will be end of year gigs, which can only imply 2nd half of Nov. We’ll see.
Invisible rehearsed in Vancouver? Read our report and have a listen to the short clip yourself: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
More from the Dublin rumour mill - reports of at least five shows in December: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Studio version of Volcano also played at #U2 Vancouver rehearsals. Unclear right now if other songs were live or studio (for PA testing).
Reports that #U2 have begun rehearsals in Vancouver & played Vertigo, The Miracle, Every Breaking Wave (full band!), Elevation, California.
Things getting real on the #U2 tour front: reports of the band’s crew arriving in Vancouver. Hope for stage/rehearsal news in coming weeks.
@louie1401 Yep, could be shows into 2016, esp if they don’t want to book around other events. An NYE gig like Lovetown would be cool.
@louie1401 Given 3 Arena’s bookings, earliest 1st show likely to be 21/11; wouldn’t be an unbroken run since some other bookings in Dec.
