BeBrave83 @u2gigs any details on GA line for Phoenix as of yet?

Thanks for your company today. See you in a couple of days for U2’s first gig in New Orleans since Popmart 1997!

 via Twitter Web Client

@Maideneer If it was a straight-up audio version of the movie I’d rate it higher. Movie is paced far better than the album.

@dpclary @TEvansBuhr I’ve seen some people suggest the band might be worried about American audience reaction, but… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

@dpclary @TEvansBuhr Hmm. Not sure “too heavy” since they used it every night of 1st American leg & Europe. And it’… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to dpclary

@Maideneer I should qualify that. I fucking adore some of the original songs on R&H, Heartland is in my U2 top 3. B… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

@Maideneer Woah, even I wouldn’t go there, and I’m known for not being that big a fan of it. I wouldn’t even rate i… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

Here’s our report on #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 in Kansas City with the full setlist: u2gigs.com/article1226.ht…

 via Twitter Web Client

@bgiesey To be fair I probably like So Cruel and Tryin’ to Throw Your Arms a bit less. But I’m very sick of UV, as… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to bgiesey

@GnoccoFritto Plus, opening the encore is the only position where that new extended intro to BDay actually works.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GnoccoFritto

@GnoccoFritto I’m with you here. Especially as an encore opener, it tanked.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GnoccoFritto

@auricursine It was always canned Pavarotti this year. By the end of the European leg he was talking over it every night too.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to auricursine

Yeah that seems gone for good at this stage, doesn’t it? I wonder if it’ll return for the multiple-night stands in… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s all. Thanks to the various Periscopers! Same set as Indy, but Best Thing & Vertigo swapped order. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “thank you, what an absolutely extraordinary night” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Much shorter than the one two nights ago in Indianapolis… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

It’s the Drowning Man snippet! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Will we get that great Drowning Man snippet at the end of One again tonight, or will Hear Us Coming return? #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Carrie___Brown I can listen to Bono croon about admiring women around the world and making herstory all night long!… https://t.co/nQleXOjvCV

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 6:15 AM, Sep 13th, 2017  via Twitter Web Client)

I’m a little disappointed they felt they had to drop MW to fit in Best Thing. The show is not that long, plenty of time for one extra track.

 via Twitter Web Client

@AntonioMbass I’m trying to throw my arms around bad songs, so I an carry them to the bin.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AntonioMbass

And there’s Ax’s controversial opinion for the day, hope you enjoyed.

More like worst. Can’t believe I’ve sat through 11 bloody performances of this bore. Acrobat, The Fly, and Love Is… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

@GnoccoFritto I don’t know if I could handle it coming back! #stillbitter

“You’re the Best Thing About Me sounded great, great” Bono tells the audience. “You all remind your local radios.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Vertigo ends with snippets of Rebel Rebel and It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

I’d say Elev-Vertigo-Best Thing in Indy definitely made more sense than tonight’s Elev-Best Thing-Vertigo. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

TEvansBuhr @u2gigs Twice before ‘his audience’ is his reasoning. I thought the segway to The Best Thing was awkward tonight.

 via Twitter for iPad (retweeted on 6:02 AM, Sep 13th, 2017  via Twitter Web Client)

Did he have a Twitter handle? I can’t recall. But that was a very good ‘Scope indeed. twitter.com/hangingoninqui…

 via Twitter Web Client

19. Now we’re at a place called Vertigo, a song later than usual #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@GnoccoFritto Boooooo shit sports.

Cricket, rugby, and Aussie Rules 4 lyfe.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GnoccoFritto

18. You’re the Best Thing About Me, in the spot usually occupied by Vertigo #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono asks the crowd if they’d like to hear The Best Thing. “We’ve played it once before.” No, twice! Fallon and Indy. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono gave a shoutout to the @Royals in Beautiful Day: “see the world in white and blue/KC Royals right in front of you” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Starman snippet in Beautiful Day #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

16. Beautiful Day opens the encore #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Encore break time. If you didn’t look at the spoiler setlist, you’re probably wondering if The Best Thing sticks around #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “Thank you for making these songs large enough for us to live in, and on.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

15. Mothers of the Disappeared #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Usual snippets of Wise Blood and Eeny Meeny in Exit. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Maungakiekie translates to mountain (maunga) of the kiekie vine, which is native to New Zealand.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

13. It’s Māori Language Week, so let’s give this its proper name: Maungakiekie. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@HerzensSonne22 Yeah, my stream must’ve just glitched, didn’t hear it at all. (Quip - remark, perhaps humorous)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to HerzensSonne22

Tonight’s setlist:

1. Bono Talks / SBS (snippet) / NYD (snippet) / Bad (snippet) / America (snippet) … twitter.com/U2start/status…

 via Twitter Web Client

As well as Bono’s “the Irish were the original Dreamers” speech, his gags about harmonicas… twitter.com/U2start/status…

 via Twitter Web Client

Huh, my stream must’ve glitched without me noticing. Sounded like he went straight from end of RHMT to IGC speech…. twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client

@cqleonardo No joke! I’d love to go back and get some more of the pre-Boy setlists…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to cqleonardo

@dontgoslideaway Yeah, seems odd to break up thsoe two, the transition is working well at the moment.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to dontgoslideaway

No “welcome to side 2” quip from Bono tonight! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

11. In God’s Country. “It’s taken us 30 years to really understand some of these songs—but this one was always clear.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Though there were probably a handful more performances of Tomorrow at shows in early 1983 for which we do not have setlists.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

This is the 39th performance of Red Hill Mining Town, putting it one ahead of Tomorrow and Van Diemen’s Land. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

10. I’m sure you’re all stunned that Red Hill Mining Town is next. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

And thanks to @atu2, Led Zep’s Black Dog was in Bullet. I missed it before the War snippet. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

9. Running to Stand Still

 via Twitter Web Client

Well folks, looks like you’ve got me for the rest of the show rather than Matkin. I’m sure he apologises to you all… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client

Bullet also has a little bit of America from West Side Story, as usual. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2 I didn’t catch that one, just War…?

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2

Bullet has a snippet of War, the Edwin Starr song, not the U2 album. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Can I leave the write-up and updates to you Ax? Really struggling here!

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

@fguise I’d expect it at least once. Maybe rotated with Little Things.

 via U2gigs (Matkin) in reply to fguise

@corianderstem @pappy90 Well, whether they actually WANTED to hear it is another thing entirely!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to corianderstem

@fguise Safe bet they’ll be playing it at some shows. Whether they will rotate new songs between gigs remains to be seen…

“Is there such a thing as Kansasians?” Bono asks. “Well, you’re all Kickassians.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

I try to play it safe, Ax. If you want risque, try Ted Cruz’s Twitter likes!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maideneer

Ooo, just noticed that Edge sings the California snippet alongside Bono. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

California snippet in Streets. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

I wouldn’t expect ASOH until at least Mexico. Maybe even Brazil. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 RT @mvdarosa: @u2gigs how many times, Bad in row ?

What. puttimg all of JT into the database straight away? Yeah, that’s an even safer bet than Bono giving a long spe… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

The next day in Jefferson City I discovered how poor my knowledge of fl oz is (relative to ml) and got rather sozzled at a pub. Good times.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

I (Ax) visited Kansas City in March. Had no expectations at all. Really loved it, had a great day there.

 via Twitter Web Client

Streets sprouts from the ground. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Welcome Ax! Hoping you stick around given my typical Periscope problems! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Hey folks, keep on scrolling past this tweet if you don’t want to see the rest of the planned setlist……. twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

 via Twitter Web Client

Pride is fourth on this stuttery stream. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Hi folks, Ax here. Somebody in a nearby apartment is cranking a Spotify playlist and The Best Thing just came on.

 via Twitter for iPhone from Melbourne, Victoria

No, I am not counting that as a Drowning Man snippet. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Haven’t seen one, alas! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 RT @nobody_home2: @u2gigs Is there a mixlr?

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Trivia: I Will Follow has been played at all 14 previous Missouri concerts. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

Sunday Bloody Sunday opens. Is Ax around? #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via U2gigs (Matkin)

szmanley My favorite part of seeing U2s team setting up is when Dallas Schoo starts messing with The Edges gear. @atu2 @U2 @u2gigs #thejoshuatree2017

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 3:42 AM, Sep 13th, 2017  via U2gigs (Matkin))

To mark Ted Cruz’s news day, tonight’s performance of Elevation should include a snippet of Babyface. Also M. Jackson’s Beat It. #NotSorry
