To anyone who has taken photos during Ultra Violet at East Rutherford 1 please check this request from Dan …. twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
@maxtsukino Sí. Las palabras más importantes de la sabiduría que hay. Nos llevamos el uno al otro.
@maxtsukino Gracias a ti también. Gracias por traer la paz, por estar allí.
I miss Ax
We’re here for one more night in this first leg. We will see you on Saturday, Canada Day, for a concert in Cleveland #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
And the house music is playing. U2 is done for the night. Mysterious Ways is added in, One closes. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Hear Us Coming snippet #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
One. Is this the last song or will we stretch to 23? #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
That is the second song tonight I did not expect.
Oh, Ultraviolet is STILL HERE! Take that Ax! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Every 2 tours U2 changes Mysterious Ways. ZooTV and PopMart was with piano intro. ET & VT guitar solo. 360 & IE no solo. Now solo again.
@JohnBender83 My guess would be a PopMart concert if it has. Before that, maybe Unforgettable Fire tour.
Also I missed that Vertigo snippet. I’m missing a lot tonight… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
First change from last night, and that guitar sounds a bit unhealthy at the beginning. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Mysterious Ways is back #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Here’s a Spanish lesson for ya: Vertigo lyrics open with “Unos, dos, tres, catorce”. That’s actually “Some, two, three…”, not one!
Vertigo makes 19 songs in a row identical to last night… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I REALLYYYY hope I don’t have to look up the last time U2 played the same set consecutively in the same city… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I’ll have to revisit that later, snippet 100 may have just snuck past our ears… People Have the Power keeps it at 99 for now.
Elevation is next #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Was that a snippet before People Have The Power? I couldn’t make it out. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Bono thanks Ronald Reagan at the end of Miss Syria. Now Beautiful Day. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Miss Syria is our encore opener. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Ditto. Removed my hat in Toronto for it. RT @atu2: Always feel like I need to stand and bow during “Mothers of the Disappeared.” Or kneel.
Mothers of the Disappeared, still my favourite Joshua Tree song. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@flor_olivieri My wife is Mexican, I learned and understand the Latin American viewpoint on USA from her. I agree with it too.
@flor_olivieri No problem. Just a different way it is taught in school. Here in Canada we learn two continents. I envy you for that.
One Tree Hill #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Anyways, moving on to Trip through Twitter #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
This tweet should not have spawned as many replies or arguments as it did. I really don’t understand that mobile.twitter.com/u2gigs/status/…
In God’s Country. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
So we’re a bit behind/distracted right now. Usual Tree order, RTSS and now RHMT #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@maxtsukino Max, you’ve been trying this whole time to stop the argument. I have no problem with you at all. You’re still an amigo =)
@U2uruguay That is a good thing. I’m glad to know I don’t have to worry about distressing you with my “arrogance”, or Matt’s, or Ax’s.
Bullet the Blue Sky #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@U2uruguay English-speaking countries are more than just America. As a Canadian, being called a Yankee is just damn offensive.
@U2uruguay Okay, I’m done arguing with you tonight. I tried to show how nobody was wrong, you threw that in my face.
California snippet #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Can you tell I was unprepared for Bad to show up tonight? #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Streets starts to sprout #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
This is Bad’s 9th consecutive appearance. Last time it had that in one leg was Zooropa leg of ZooTV (leg 4) #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I was not expecting Bad. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
It’s Bad… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@pappy90 Because the bass line in this lower-pitched New Year’s Day sounds so incredibly menacing. I love it.
@Giuseppie82 Probably both.
Menacing Day #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Sunday Bloody Sunday #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I’m more than happy to leave you in darkness if all you’re trying to do is needle me. I’ve got better things to do than get pissed off.
Seriously, this kind of pointless nitpicking in a need to try and “best” us in some way only serves to irritate.
Suffice to say, depending on what definition you use there are between 4 and 7. I use the 7.
Unfortunately the twitter character limitation is too short to do a dissertation on the various definitions of continents.
@hibricc Ax is either drunk or asleep, it’s Matkin tonight =) And no, PopMart had zero Zooropa songs (not counting the taped Lemon remix)
Bad will either be played the most times consecutively since ZooTV or the streak will snap at 8. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
If Beautiful Day gets a new snippet tonight it will be that magical 100th. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I… don’t actually have anything to say in the mainpage summary. They better blow us away tonight or the article gonna be awful short!
@BeeZee05 That is what penultimate means
It’s the penultimate night of leg 1, and the last doubleheader in America this tour. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
10 minutes to go if U2 are on schedule. Half an hour if not. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@matt_shoreditch To be honest U2’s management seem to condone the unofficial lists, if only through indifference.
We do our best to disseminate news about unofficial lines but these seriously disadvantage fans who don’t check social media 24/7.
I (Ax) have simple view on GA line debate: no line that violates the official instructions given to all ticketholders should be honoured.
@NateIngraham Oh yes. There’s always a deep cut that people are excited to see come back, only for it to vanish pretty quickly.
@JohnBender83 I know that deciding for Peace On Earth in particular gave Ax a real headache.
@u2wanderer It’s understandable! I long to be at a live release just so I don’t have to have fuzzy bootlegs to rely on when revisiting it
@JohnBender83 Until we could implement a medley format in the backened we counted a full First Time as a snippet because Bad continued after
@u2wanderer I meant more for being able to experience one you went to over & over again. Filming does make them nervous. Audio usually fine
@u2wanderer You’ve been there for quite a few live releases! I’m very jealous!
@u2wanderer Could have been crossed wires too. Was filmed as practice and maybe people thought it was for the actual release. Have t ask U2!
@u2wanderer Will never know why they changed their minds but at least Stay got a release later.
@u2wanderer Our biggest joy is being useful! One thing of note, the Elevation Boston release was originally planned to be shot in Toronto
@u2wanderer One small correction, Toronto start in Vertigo was leg 3 not 4
Is this a joke? How is Regular GA Ticketholder following official venue instructions meant to know/find this?… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
@MitchellDryden In person, absolutely.
Genuinely can’t believe Elevation has more performances than 40 now. That’s mad. Matkin did a stellar job on stats… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
@chrismaguire73 Only a week-long gap so it would surprise me if they changed more than one song.
Well that is all from me tonight. See you all tomorrow night. Let’s see how Ax rages about 40 when he wakes up. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Possibly even more shocking? Vertigo is only 7 away from tying 40 as well! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I’m still kinda struggling with that one. Elevation has been played more than 40. It seems impossible. EVERYTHING I KNOW IS WRONG!!!
Another horrifying stat: Trip is just 4 performances less than ASOH! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Here is our mainpage summary of tonight with all the little (and in Elevation’s case, stunning) details u2gigs.com/article1189.ht…
Thank you to Lorevox for the great mixlr tonight, and everyone who shared what was going on. Always appreciated! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Longest streak of Bad since opening of Elevation Tour. Beautiful Day one snippet from 100. Elevation passes 40! WHAT! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Well, sounds like that is it for tonight. And what a night for stats! Ax would be in heaven (and also in a rage) #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
And it is Little Things that closes out the night. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
One more to go based on Larry’s setlist #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@jefco5 Needs Party Girl too.
@AntonioMbass Every one since Pop. Holy Joe, Ground Beneath Her Feet, Fast Cars. NLOTH2 really the only outlier.
@AntonioMbass It may be the deluxe edition, but it is still the album. They aren’t B-sides or unreleased, so we classify them as album.
It’s a Bowie snippetfest tonight it seems #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Time for Ultraviolet (Ax Hates Light In His Way) #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
And Vertigo is next. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
With tonight’s rendition, Elevation has now been played live more than 40. More than goddamned 40! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
It is Elevation. And time to blow minds. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I loved the techno babble heads on screen at this part #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@atu2comSherry Gotcha. I missed it getting a drink, haha
Beautiful Day #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Listening to the same set every night on Mixlr gets tiring, but in person it works so damn well and is so amazing. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@MattMackowiak It’s our pleasure!
Preparing to blow some minds in a few minutes time… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@MattMackowiak Yes. On setlists they have been listing it as “Miss Syria” or “Miss Sarajevo (Syria)”.
Miss Syria is the encore opener #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
By the end of this leg, MOTD will also pass Van Diemen’s Land and Tomorrow #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Continuing on this theme, tonight Mothers of the Disappeared passed God Part II and ties Touch on performance counts #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
And tonight Exit surpasses Get on Your Boots and Love and Peace Or Else in the performance count too #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
With this One Tree Hill it has now been performed more than Miami #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Next up is TTYW. It has now been played more often than Stay. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
In A Deity’s Country #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Number of KNOWN performances, I should clarify. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
