@ryannichols7 Ten bucks on Invisible or People Have The Power over end of One.
So there’s the snippet record - 19 now. (Equal on 18 if don’t count Shine Like Stars, but there’s an unidentified snip to ID after Desire)
@KevinMFeeney At least they never tried BDay/Bullet: “Beautiful day! Don’t let it get away! Away! AWWWAAAAYYYY! IN THE HOWLING WIND!”
@KevinMFeeney MDrug was a weird choice to revive in the first place. And let’s not forget all those One Step Closer rehearsals…
@KevinMFeeney Oh god I’d all but erased memory of that awful COBL/Bullet transition.
@KevinMFeeney I miss when the opening song of the encore was rotational… sigh. MDrug didn’t work but others would!
@EveryBrokenWave Yep, that’s my expectation too. Hopefully this is one of those nights he does not one but two in BDay.
@AnitaHartgers So is Ax; he memorized the entire database!
@CBarcaSTJ That’s awesome!
@ryannichols7 Don’t get why Angel Of Harlem has got preference over AIWIY. Both are good to get guitarists up and surely AIWIY better known!
@CBarcaSTJ Oh really? I’ll have to check that! And how’s it going man?
I (Ax) will hold off on adding the post-Desire snippet until after the show when I can listen back to confirm if it was “Clair” or not.
@rendigryce Well, I guess you have now by Twitter! :-P
Bono just snippeted something at the end of Desire to Claire… I think it was Gilbert O’Sullivan’s Clair, judging by Bono’s remarks.
I suppose if Matkin were still on lead duties MWays would be “Ways of Mystery”.
I don’t dream, not as such
I don’t even think about how I rob myself of sleep to cover these shows
…doesn’t quite fit the meter
I (Ax) love these London gigs - they fall at a far more sensible time in Melbourne. It’s already almost 8:30am!
Hah, so for once it was me that wasn’t paying attention!
If Matkin had paid attention either to this Twitter stream around Iris or to his emails, he’d know I (Ax) am here - I am not invisible.
@BeatrizFaillace Nope, just reminiscing
Matkin was wondering where I (Ax) had got to - and here I am! Very keen to see what rotates into the set for the E stage.
@DutchU2Fan Think it was Milan, but don’t recall 100%
@atu2 It’s the only Oasis song I know apart from Wonderwall
@ryannichols7 We can dream
I wish Ax was here again.
fakebono Edge just showed me a tweeter photo of some punter in a meerkat suit.
@JeffReinhart77 Two night one songs, a night two song, and a new (for this leg) song
@baz_del I’m in the seats today
Less than 60 minutes and I’m live herhttp://mixlr.com/u2gigsYo #U2ieTour
@sethckal I think at 3pm
@U2start Walk On for Matkin!
Matkin just watched the Even Better Than the Real Thing music video. Matkin is now very, very dizzy! #U2
Our Matts have persuaded me (Ax) that in Bad Bono snippeted Patti Smith’s Gloria, not Van’s. Explanation & full set: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
@Timothij I was just about to tweet you the same :) Looks still a bit strange to me taken from that high up.
@Timothij yes, I wonder what this is for. Very special perspective on all shots.
@U2_ultraviolet I heard some that you want this part as close as possible ;-)
@U2_ultraviolet glad you like it. Always a bit tricky with all the smartphones in front but it worked :-)
This is the band with the camera https://t.co/m7yXkQPC2w
Here’s another one … camera was like 3-4m high sometimes https://t.co/e6GEgvgNCN
This is the screen of this camera and what the photos look like 2/2 https://t.co/DUcP4fi5LB
It has been probably mentioned earlier that were was quite a long monopod with camera on it most of the concert 1/2
U2 New Year’s Day from the third London shohttps://youtu.be/eC09aryZ87gzW #U2ieTour
@DomT77 I’m so pleased Martin Phillipps still has such great music in him.
@joe_ahorro Sorry saw this too late. We were at the pub close to the entrance.
Not U2-related, but I (Ax) would like to urge you to get The Chills’ new album Silver Bullets out today. New Zealand’s best band ever.
@Rich_Bach Yeah I’m not sure what to expect now. Assume One is the likely closer. But E stage could produce surprises.
@U2_ultraviolet Have some nice video for you soon. We moved to the e-stage because I saw this coming ;)
@jad_bake No. It was 3rd-last night of the Euro leg of JT Tour (1 more B’ham gig + Cork), then there was a North American leg of 50 shows.
@ryannichols7 Classic case of “having your heart in the right place does not mean the song will be any good”.
That was a very cool end for the show. We have a beer here with some people. Vids take a Pint longer today. Matt
@ryannichols7 Yeah, Same Love hadn’t changed (or at least not the last time I covered a show - about a forrtnight ago!).
@JoeriHarcksen It’s been Same Love for ages, since Phoenix in May I think.
That was nice and quick, much smoother than I anticipate buying U2 tickets will be whenever they get to Australia. So anyway…
