@FearthePhenom Yeah, grey zone there - I think he’s just aiming to blend that old snippet in as part of the California ref.
@Ehud97 That’s a fair point, and I’ve put that caveat in the article.
@atu2 Absolutely, very clear what he was singing there.
@atu2comSherry Yeah it’s shown up for the previous two 4+ night stands so I’d expect it once in Chicago at least.
@ryannichols7 I briefly hoped so… but straight into WOWY damnit.
@litofpigs Afraid not. Stiiiill waiting.
@atu2 Yeah that sounded excellent - it ought to become at least semi-regular.
@pappy90 I’m glad I’m not the only person who went there.
@EveryBrokenWave Ah cool, hope it was a good trip!
@EveryBrokenWave Oh where’ve you been? I’m just heading to Sydney for a week for work.
@EveryBrokenWave No worries. Ax here - missed you being around during shows lately. Hope you enjoy next week; I’ll be travelling during them
@Tvbona Actually that’s a good question - I don’t know. Most soundcheck reports are just what’s heard outside so they could be anywhere.
@JereVenencia13 I would expect it on the E stage but it would work in a lot of places in the set…
Want to know what Crystal Ballroom’s soundcheck was like? Check out a bit of it here: https://twitter.com/V_fo…
@U2start Yeah that was one of the Elevation Tour’s cooler moments.
Previous soundchecks of Crystal Ballroom had not included Bono. https://twitter.com/WTSH…
What a show, it sounded like. So uplifting in the wake of the #LoveWins decision. So upset I (Chris) missed a vast chunk of it.
Bono talking to crowd. “Why would you be against anybody committing their life to each other? What could be more extraordinary?” #U2ieTour
@vetriu2 Huh? It was played in its usual spot after Pride.
After some discussion we’ve added The Beatles’ Julia as snip after Desire. Bono got lyrics wrong but pretty sure he was trying to sing it.
AIWIY into WOWY was great. Bad into WOWY has been great at other shows. Make this a regular rotation #U2!
@atu2 He’s used it over the intro of Pride a few times. It sounds great in Bullet but I find it jarring with Pride’s chimy intro.
@U2_News He sang “let me paint a picture of you Julia”, which I don’t think is a lyric of the Beatles song? But prob he just got it wrong.
Chris here popping to say YES, GLORIA!! (Almost) As excited as Ax is! Tremendous song, so happy it’s back. #U2ieTour
@DerBFreund Oh yeah might’ve been. He sang “let me paint a picture of you Julia”, which I don’t think is a line but he mangles snips often.
@DerBFreund I’ll put it at the end of Desire, but I don’t know what song that was.
WTSHNN A blind guitarist on,stage for Desire.
@AntonioMbass I’m happy to forget about Crazy myself. ;)
@AntonioMbass Haha, time for another Great Snippet Debate?
@ryannichols7 Yeah I’m baffled YBR was tried on 360 rather than in arenas.
@AntonioMbass No, counting it as She’s a Rainbow by the Rolling Stones.
And poor old Passengers! I keep saying Beach Sequence/NYD would be an amazing pairing. https://twitter.com/ryan…
@U2start I’m calling that as a Stones snippet, since Mick Jagger has been in town.
@MarkCDarwin True, I should probably clarify that on the site…
@popartist61 Haha yeah, I’ve seen it live and if it hadn’t been done for 20 years, that would’ve meant I’d been to a U2 show before I was 8!
@AntonioMbass Yeah I think that was added at the Denver show?
I love how Bono introduced Gloria as not played in 20 years though. Only one decade too many. ;) Intro’ing band over bass solo now.
Here’s the answer to the mystery 1989 song that was teased earlier. We were keeping that under our hats! https://twitter.com/atu2…
@atu2 Not Lucifer’s Hands? Or both of them? I saw mention of Lucifer earlier but not Ballroom.
@BeeZee05 VDL was played a few times on ZooTV and once in 2008, so that would appear to rule it out.
@ryannichols7 I do wonder where some of the Vancouver rehearsed songs have got to… but ask about A Sort of Homecoming instead. ;)
@kaniep Don’t want to argue/get too political, but today is one of the more important days in American history. I’ll leave it at that.
Chris here, popping in to say I’m damn proud to be an American today. Been on the verge of tears all day. In the name of love! #LoveWins
