A HUGE thank you to @postrin for one of the best Mixlr feeds this tour. Our mainpage report coming shortly. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 #JT30

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end. 21 songs. Little Things on printed set but I Will Follow played. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 #JT30

 via Twitter Web Client

Beautiful Day/Elevation/I Will Follow is a very good encore to keep the crowd jumping through to the end. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 #JT30

@LookItsMorris If so, bit weak to go down from 22 songs to 21 “just in case” they then spontaneously choose to do a 22nd.

Elevation and UV had been paired previously as part of section celebrating women. Interesting to do UV separately tonight.

Your turn, Ax. RT @cqleonardo: @u2gigs now i’m waiting for Hear Me Coming in One

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…

 via U2gigs (Matkin) in reply to u2gigs

Because of that SBS jumps to the top of total song representation u2gigs.com/most-played-so… IWF likely higher still

 via U2gigs (Matkin) in reply to u2gigs

Phew, took a few days but went through every single PopMart concert and listened to every single Please. Result: all 93 SBS snippets added!

@mysteriousdays I mean, you can make a 25-song set just of hits. What surprises me is when we call hits like The Fl… 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. :)

@nitebus @Renegade_Son Now there’s a band who knows how to please casual and hardcore fans at once.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to nitebus

nitebus @Renegade_Son @u2gigs The Cure are the winners though. same age as U2 pretty much and they played 30 songs almost every single night in 2016

@EdgeFest A lot of the between-song banter has become generic very quickly.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to EdgeFest

@_JamesMiller_ This is my hope. The Vertigo Tour suggests precedent for this to happen too.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to _JamesMiller_

@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.

@KUEFC Yeah, esp as it had all the potential in the world to be a good intro to the album, treating this return to… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…

Renegade_Son @azcat92 @u2gigs Elevation is a crowd pleaser, plus Larry’s selfie in the break reeeeealy gets the crowd going. Nice touch that works.

@chadd787 @Hoosier2012 Yep, Alicia Keys got a shoutout during One just before Hear Us Coming.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to chadd787

@GnoccoFritto @chadd787 Even earlier, too. Stranger in a Strange Land is political, Rejoice and The Electric Co. a bit more obliquely.
