@markpeterboro @U2ThreeChords you can also try to make a Google Doc of it. Anyone can access easily and you have edit permissions.

@Lunnzies Yeah camera phones and point and shoots are fine; pro cameras (i.e. SLRs) are a no-go.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Lunnzies

RT @Dutchelevation: Updated my personal @U2 concert statistics on @U2gigs website: 60 gigs so far & 120 different songs. So cool! http://t.http://www.u2gi…

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@joej2012 Agreed. I wish they’d go seamlessly from COBL to the Mother & Child Reunion snippet, and do the speech after Streets.

U2 Phoenix photos from Stefan 1st night http://u2.gs/q9 and 2nd night http://u2.gs/qb #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Matt)

But don’t worry, we’ll keep hassling you w/ live sets & stats for rest of North American leg, e.g. Phoenix 1 had 400th performance of BDay.

 via Twitter Web Client

I (Ax) also want to add my thanks to Stefan & Frank for amazing videos. Can’t wait for the shows they & Matt will film in Europe! #U2ieTour

 via Twitter Web Client

A big thank you to Stefan & Frank for all the great videos! We’ll be all back for the European shows later this year. Matt

@honey_child Who on earth hated HMTMKMKM? That was one of the best songs. So relieved when it replaced UV.

@honey_child And I don’t think I was very secretive with my hate of In a Little While on 360!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

@honey_child I (Ax) no big fan of Angel of Harlem but in Paris sang it very loudly to get rid of someone hogging my personal space. Worked!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

@SirEdwardGrey It was People Have The Power by Patti Smith.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to SirEdwardGrey

@sb_wreeldeal Beach Sequence is stunning. Would love to hear Beach Sequence/NYD. Also love Slug, One Minute Warning, Always Forever Now.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

@jeffsilveira75 Many would disagree with you. U2 have longstanding ties to Ireland’s gay community - Twilight, One, etc.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsilveira75

Angel Of Harlem from the 2nd Phoenix #U2ieTour show. Video by our friend Stefan https://youtu.be/ctQhQ9F…

 via U2gigs (Matt)

@honey_child @sb_wreeldeal You have no idea how much I wanted to hear Your Blue Room. I love almost all of Passengers.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

Here’s our updated show write-up and full setlist for Phoenix 2: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

The outro music tonight is Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, another nod to Ireland’s successful referendum. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end. After 25 songs last night, just 23 tonight. Full set here: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

“Go home!” says Bono after One. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@honey_child I (Chris) was lucky enough to see Zooropa in Philly on 360. Miss S-Zoo-COBL was the highlight of my night.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to honey_child

OK #U2, time to shock us by following Streets by busting out a full band In God’s Country. You know you want to. #U2ieTour

 via Twitter Web Client

@iammarsgirl I (Chris) love the new modified chorus! I’m hoping to hear it at least once in NYC.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to iammarsgirl

California snippet in Streets. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@honey_child I’m still bummed out they didn’t debut Zooropa until 2011. I would’ve loved to have heard it. Top ten song for me.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

@iammarsgirl I love Miracle Drug!!! So much so. It’s so beautiful. But COBL is a top-2 U2 song for me.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to iammarsgirl

Tonight is only the second full tour concert COBL has missed since its debut, the other one being Vancouver 2. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal I actually might be COBL’s biggest fan

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to sb_wreeldeal

22. Mother and Child Reunion snippet leads into Where The Streets Have No Name #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@toolz2112 First half was pretty tense but yeah I’m glad to see us pull ahead - especially since my Mum’s a Brisbane fan haha.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to toolz2112

Bono is now speechifying about AIDS and poverty. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Hope everyone is enjoying the gig so far! Nice to see Miracle Drug back, but I hate seeing it replace COBL.

 via U2gigs (Chris)

Chris here, very upset I can no longer say I saw the only recorded snippet of One ever!

 via U2gigs (Chris)

@toolz2112 Collingwood? Collingwood?! I suppose we all have our shortcomings… ;)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to toolz2112

21. Our answer is: Miracle Drug! 2nd performance of tour, back after missing 3 shows. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Here’s the Stephen Hawking video. COBL or Miracle Drug to open encore? #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Encore break: chance to play closer attention to Essendon vs Brisbane. Because you all care about my footy team’s fortunes.

 via Twitter Web Client

End of main set, Bono says the crowd is “extraordinary”. Catch up on set: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@honey_child @sb_wreeldeal I’m stoked I got Stay at Dublin 3 in 2009. Was worried it wouldn’t be done after it missed A’dam and Dublin 1-2.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

Please #U2 bring back The Troubles. It was after WOWY on the printed set for San Jose 2. Will it show up there tonight? #U2ieTour

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal Haha. Yeah I was worried Stuck would be a regular this tour after its promo appearances. Relieved no sign of it yet.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

End of Beautiful Day is a snippet of One! “Love is a temple, love is the higher law”. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal @honey_child Yep. Really dragged down the set at Melbourne 2.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

Bono still on the referendum theme: “yes it’s a beautiful day alright!” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono modifies one lyric of Pride to “they cannot take your gay pride”. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

He describes people voting yes in Ireland’s referendum as saying “love is the highest law in the land”. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono during Pride: “We have peace in Ireland today! And in fact on this very day we have true equality in Ireland!” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@honey_child Let’s call it our combined influence! I wish we’d got AIWIY in Melbourne instead of Stuck ugghhh.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

18. Snippet of Hands That Built America leads into Pride, as usual. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal I’ve heard Gloria and Scarlet, but never got anything from Pop live.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

Tonight’s Bullet snippets: Whole Lotta Love, 19. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal Nice! It always comes back into the set right after I see them.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

@sb_wreeldeal Matt’s going to heaps in Europe, Chris is going to a few in NYC, I (Ax) am not going to any yet. Hoping for Aussie leg.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

@honey_child Nah, they played it because my 360 run of shows was over, and AIWIY is avoiding me. ;)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to honey_child

As for One Tree Hill and 11 O’clock Tick Tock, they’re personal favourites. I took sign for Womanfish because funny: https://www.youtube.com/…

 via Twitter Web Client

16. Every Breaking Wave. Guess that means no In God’s Country tonight? :( #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

People think Party Girl has been done every tour since its debut but it missed Popmart. Yet to appear on #U2ieTour too.

 via Twitter Web Client

I tried Slow Dancing on Vertigo in hope of maintaining its record of only b-side played on every tour since its debut. Didn’t work!

 via Twitter Web Client

OK, have you taken a sign requesting a song to a #U2 gig? I’ve tried One Tree Hill, 11 O’clock Tick Tock, Slow Dancing, and Womanfish.

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal At another show I had a sign for 11 O’clock Tick Tock. Edge smiled but shook his head. Damnit.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

15. When Love Comes To Town, also back after missing the last two shows. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

So that spoiler set is right so far. Angel Of Harlem back after missing the last two shows. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

There’s MWays’ snippet of Young Americans. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@drcfire I’d looove even just a snippet, yeah. I once tried to get a Womanfish snippet by taking a sign with some of the lyrics haha.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to drcfire

12. Even Better Than The Real Thing #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

11. Intermission is over and #U2 are back with Invisible. #U2ieTour

 via Twitter Web Client

@Robbie_J Yeah there was Edge’s heartfelt solo version on Popmart.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Robbie_J

I can’t say I expected to add “Until The End Of The World / Macbeth Act 5 Scene 1 (snippet)” to a set any time soon! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

And now it’s intermission time with The Wanderer. Catch up on set so far: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

“Out damned spot!” That’s a Macbeth quote at end of UTEOTW. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@drcfire Love the stream-of-consciousness lyrics over the post-punk intensity of the music. Really underrated.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to drcfire

@iAMFunk21 Haha yeah I guess those weren’t lyrics books then!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to iAMFunk21

10. Until The End Of The World. End of RBW had the Psalm 23 snippet. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Just when you thought Raised By Wolves couldn’t get any more intense too! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Sil says “he is ripping up the book and throwing it in our faces”. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

WTSHNN He just threw a book into the crowd

 via Twitter for Android (retweeted on 6:02 AM, May 24th, 2015  via Twitter Web Client)

Seems people are divided evenly on new SBS, judging by replies. I’m definitely glad they’ve redone it - would’ve been stale otherwise. #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@drcfire Glad I’m not the only one to rate Treasure so highly!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to drcfire

So folks, the new SBS: yea or nay? I like they’re trying different things with it, buuuut… not totally sold. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono giving it his all at the end of Cedarwood Road. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Any other Aussies trying to follow the Essendon vs Brisbane game as well as this show? Carn the Bombers! (This is awkward multitasking.)

 via Twitter Web Client

I’d like that Mofo snippet at the start of Iris more often. It was beautiful. (OK, I’d like a full version of Mofo even more!) #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

5. Iris - Bono introduces it for his mother, and for Larry’s. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono about Edge: “He’s a Welsh man who comes to Ireland. What are the odds of that?” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono says that Larry reckons he should keep philosophical questions like that to himself. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “Why did Adam Clayton become a bass player? … he’s not really answering me on that question!” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “Last night was great but I think we’re going to transcend that. That’s our job!” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

4. I Will Follow. Think there was a brief snippet at end of Vertigo but I couldn’t catch it. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

We’ve done that before - with the same song! Larry started Gloria at a 1984 show when the rest of the band did OOC: http://www.u2gigs.com/sh…

 via Twitter Web Client

OK, that was definitely Larry playing Vertigo’s drum intro a song early at the start of OOC, so I’m putting that in the set as a snippet.

 via Twitter Web Client

3. Vertigo with Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio? snippet at start #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@IgnacioAylwin Yep, slightly longer variation of same story.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to IgnacioAylwin

Bono’s says his old man told him “why aren’t you doing your schoolwork? You’re out of control!” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono telling the story about how the band had to get money from their parents to tour and get a record deal. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2comSherry Haha that cracked me up. Didn’t they say they got it from http://U2.com’s discography, which is itself wrong?

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2comSherry

Bono says Out Of Control is “our first single, from 1980” Not quite Bono, it was 1979! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

2. Out Of Control, back after missing two shows #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@ryannichols7 It was amazing. Another band did Pictures Of You shoegaze-style and it was equally transcendent.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

@ryannichols7 Acrobat would sound incredible covered Medicine-style. Now, Shot Forth Self Living, there’s a great fucking album.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

Here’s our mainpage article for tonight’s set: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

1. First in Phoenix is The Miracle, Bono again starting on the E stage. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@ryannichols7 So if Plainsong can be made to have epic layers, I think ASOH, ISS, etc. could work really well.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

@ryannichols7 I went to a great shoegaze festival earlier this month and one band did an incredible cover of The Cure’s Plainsong.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

@ryannichols7 Hmm, most shoegaze… I think you could make some amazing ‘gazy covers of UF era songs. But IGC would work!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

OK, we are go in Phoenix - intro music is playing. Patti Smith’s People Have The Power again. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@jay2bell And I’d make enough noise that U2 would think all 20,000 know it.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to jay2bell

If #U2 ever play Love Comes Tumbling my reaction to Electric Co in San Jose will seem calm & measured by comparison. https://twitter.com/Maid…

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2comSherry How about both! And some other gems starting with A. An Cat Dubh. Another Time Another Place. A Celebration.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2comSherry

Let’s start putting books with A Sort of Homecoming’s lyrics on the E stage until #U2 finally play it. https://twitter.com/Nate…

 via Twitter Web Client

@AnalogMeat I honestly think it would’ve already been played in the Sweetest Thing/WLCTT slot had BB’s death not prompted WLCTT’s return.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnalogMeat

@AnalogMeat Yeah I’ve been waiting for that to show up after it was rehearsed fairly extensively.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnalogMeat

@johnnyo217 I’d love to hear it done with its full JT/Lovetown energy too. Great, quick, punchy track. Surprised it’s been so underplayed.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to johnnyo217

Here’s a spoiler of part of tonight’s printed setlist. Look at your own risk. #U2ieTour #U2 https://twitter.com/Nate…

 via Twitter Web Client

@SirEdwardGrey I’m hoping The Troubles returns tonight. Still surprised California wasn’t done in San Jose; surely will in LA.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to SirEdwardGrey

@jay2bell It hasn’t been performed outside of Spain since 1987.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to jay2bell

@jay2bell No, though I expect it will be played in Barcelona on the 2nd leg.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to jay2bell

I expect Bono will have something to say about Ireland’s referendum, but will they choose a song in honour of the yes vote? #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

If you haven’t seen our videos from Phoenix 1 yet, you may want to get onto that (In God’s Country!): http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Night 2 in Phoenix tonight. Hope you’re all good and ready. Will there be a tour debut? This is Ax here to take you through. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@thom2805 No. It used to be, but formally ceased to be a member of the Commonwealth in April 1949.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to thom2805

@misskubelik The problem with that is then we wouldn’t have Periscope feeds or nice videos afterwards!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to misskubelik

@johnnyo217 That’s correct; the three Elevation performances were acoustic.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to johnnyo217

@adammajorcsik I fully expect something from NLOTH during the LA run. Probably Moment of Surrender, given Bono’s recent snippeting of it.
