@GnoccoFritto The latest tweet came from his iPhon—er, iCovfefe.
Waves of tweets and waves of memes
Trump reached out for the iPhone aides tried to destroy
He, he said he’d wait
Until the end of covfefe
Pretty cool that the new RS article includes a couple of our videos by Stefan and Frank: rollingstone.com/music/features…
Also never forget youtube.com/watch?v=KZhCDY…
“Who’s gonna leave you on a son you’ve never heard before”. Oddly prophetic!

@NJSmitty8 Support 7:30 and U2 9pm so far.
@tilldecember Chicago is the test. If it doesn’t show up at either gig, I fear it’s gone for good.
@dontgoslideaway Would’ve been good between One and Beautiful Day tonight.
@erin_hanson Haha, yep. Bono has said the remark before One, but Vancouver is the only show where he tried to get crowd to chant it.
@LookItsMorris If so, bit weak to go down from 22 songs to 21 “just in case” they then spontaneously choose to do a 22nd.
Look who nailed this setlist change 25 minutes ago! twitter.com/nitebus/status…
@LookItsMorris They didn’t at the previous two shows. :(
“You’ve got to hold onto love in these luminous times. This is a special song, one we don’t play much… DESIRE!” twitter.com/dontgoslideawa…
Yeah this is a bit curious. Even if there’s a curfew about to hit, it’s not as if U2 gave two hoots about that in V… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
I love U2’s political side. I love that they place it front and centre live.
I do not love really long-winded speeches before One.
@Lady_Smeagol Got to be at least fifty by now!
Bono, you keep saying LUMINOUS a lot of TIMES.
Come on guys. Come ON.
@nitebus God I need I Will Follow again.
@tawny_cat Yep! Didn’t expect this; past experience suggested this would be same set as Houston.
@dbnarz No, it missed big chunks of Elevation and Vertigo Tours.
Elevation and UV had been paired previously as part of section celebrating women. Interesting to do UV separately tonight.
Nope. On UF 1985 played at only full-tour Irish show. On JT 1987 and Elevation 2001, played at one Irish show each. twitter.com/dontgoslideawa…
In 1987 they thought it could replace 40’s “how long?” as an end-of-show crowd chant!
It seems neither 1987 nor 2017’s attempts to get the crowd chanting El Pueblo Vencera have worked as well as Bono h… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
@lukas_venencia Yep! I can’t wait for my turn to hear it live. -Ax
@myeucatastrophe Yep, every night!
The latter is very possible! Bono over the years has usually got this sort of thing wrong, heh. twitter.com/nitebus/status…
Bono intros One Tree Hill w/ speech about losing Greg Carroll. “We were friends, comrades, we wrote this song for him.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@coribald I can’t say I’m particularly sad about that! Though it’d be bloody hilarious as a once-off.
@sammykohn Thanks! We will have site staff at every European show, which will be cool.
We actually have Red Light as a database option too (as with all album songs), even though it’s never been played. Funny to see it come up.
I really don’t know which I prefer. Both beautiful. But I’ve not seen guitar version live, so Edge, please switch b… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
@sammykohn Geez I wish the band would give us some coin for this, haha.
OK, we’ve got a couple of people saying California snip was in Streets, others saying not. I’m removing it, will check after gig.
@Renegade_Son Chicago is the test. Two gigs. If it appears at neither, it’s gone for the leg, at least.
Cheers, here’s confirmation Streets included its regular snippet of California (There Is No End to Love)…. twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
Yep, they did this at the Super Bowl in 2002, and surprisingly that’s the only time it’s happened. twitter.com/Hoosier2012/st…
@starryclovers Next shows are 2 nights in Chicago. I hope it appears at one of them!
@atu2 I was not expecting that shakeup to the order!
@Mommajaayyy Fingers crossed it’s back tonight!
That’s correct! Angel of Harlem wasn’t played again on Vertigo for over a year, once U2 got to Australia. twitter.com/3WiseMenblog/s…
Thought U2 would be on stage by about 10 mins ago but Dallas (Schoo, not the city) is still doing his tech thing now. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Actually, this show is in Arlington too, not Dallas. Need to tweak that in the database.
Yep, and some others in Arlington. But every tour has a gig in the DFW area, excluding IE. twitter.com/nitebus/status…
@mvdarosa Yeah, they’ve been bouncing around for a little while, might happen.
@Naomi_U2Sydney Oh man that’s one hell of a self-burn haha! I’m moving to Wollongong in a couple of weeks; may have to learn to stay in…
@Naomi_U2Sydney And I didn’t get home until 3:30am! Could use some more shut-eye to be honest…
Hi folks, Ax here to bring you #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 Dallas. I had a big Friday here in Melbourne last night, but I’ve dragged myself up!
@corianderstem If you’ve only listened to the album version, probably not. I think the music video was the single version, so maybe that?
When I get time I’ll start cataloguing all the Please snippets. I have a feeling we’re missing a few dozen…
@LookItsMorris I’d have to double check on that! I’ve got 92 other Pleases ringing in my head since then…
Also for those curious, SBS has been snippeted 101 times. That puts it just behind 40.
For those curious, all of those 93 SBS snippets in Please are the drumbeat when Bono sings “September…”
@TheWrage We just hadn’t really checked before, time and ease to listen. We only had about 5 or 6 of the 93 listed.
@brooks_moore Yes, around then. Last couple nights they have started about 8:45.
@JonathanCrites …what Bono/Edge song they end with. Rest of set was static from beginning to end.
@JonathanCrites The only real changes? Pop songs dropped over time. Edge karaoke different each night (replaced by SBS from Sarajevo on) &
@JonathanCrites Trade secret! PopMart honestly the least diverse tour. You know one set, you know 90% of them.
SBS likely still 2nd ahead of Pride though. If you discount all those snippets, SBS is fourth on the list u2gigs.com/most-played-so…
Because of that SBS jumps to the top of total song representation u2gigs.com/most-played-so… IWF likely higher still
Phew, took a few days but went through every single PopMart concert and listened to every single Please. Result: all 93 SBS snippets added!
Got this one by Robert Lipperd: „this one is my favorite. one of those “they’re so ugly they’re sexy”… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
@mysteriousdays I’d say UV/ASOH about equal in how well known. And given most of the set is hits, they can throw us a bone!
@chadd787 Hey thanks, we really appreciate it. :)
@EdgeFest A lot of the between-song banter has become generic very quickly.
@_JamesMiller_ This is my hope. The Vertigo Tour suggests precedent for this to happen too.
@Renegade_Son To be honest I prefer this version to IE, since Bono is singing all the lines. The crowd karaoke of IE I disliked.
