Updated our setlist article with the actual setlist. Someone *cough*Ax*cough* forgot to include the show link in the final summary! Oops!

@James19169882 I hate to break it to you, but you’re wrong.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to James19169882

GnoccoFritto @u2gigs Bad sounded tremendous tonight, maybe the sound was perfect where I was situated in GA. Dunno.

 via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 1:19 PM, Sep 23rd, 2017  via Twitter Web Client)

@GnoccoFritto I was referring to the JT album, not MOTD as a song.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GnoccoFritto

@johny_t_777 I laughed heartily! Fingers crossed the Tiges can do this. With the Bombers out I’m so on the Richmond bandwagon.

Bono’s giving his thank-yous as U2 leave stage. And we thank Mixlr people! @rossgperry in particular did a great feed. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end of the U2 show—and what a start for Richmond, my word! Two goals in a minute, go Tiges!

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono shouting tribute to Mexico City over end of One, sings snippet of Drowning Man. “Rise up with wings like eagles.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

tanya_az2 @u2gigs I’m not big on MotD but I cried so much in Phoenix bc it will be the last time I see JT ever….

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 8:44 AM, Sep 23rd, 2017  via Twitter Web Client)

@tanya_az2 The racist version is actually not the original. It began as a nonsense rhyme. The racist lyrics are decades younger.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to tanya_az2

Move over U2, time for footy! Will GWS make their 1st grand final in their 6yr history, or Richmond their first in 37 years? CARN THE TIGES.

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono’s giving a speech about how much he loves America, presumably means One to come… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@TEvansBuhr Not sure what you mean? Our website database has all the snippets…

Bono explains the acoustic version of Best Thing is “because the beautiful woman who inspired it is here tonight”. Wanted to sing to her.

 via Twitter Web Client

I don’t normally like U2’s acoustic versions of anything. But this sounds way more coherent than the electric version! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

When the show began I was definitely not expecting an acoustic Best Thing. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Before Bono sang the first line of The Best Thing, I was about to tweet “what the fuck is this?” This is mellow. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

 via Twitter Web Client

Arthur Fogel of Live Nation was another person who got named. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

“Thank you for listening to the Joshua Tree album,” says Bono. He thanks Corbijn, Oseary, Beck, U2 crew, others. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

I got the backend to play ball again, so the mainpage article again has the full set so far: u2gigs.com/article1230.ht… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

11. In God’s Country. Bono: “we have to stay awake to dream, do we not?” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

@PerryGPapa At one show I got so distracted by the woman in the centre of the video blinking that I started counting them. Lost track at 30.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to PerryGPapa

OK, sorry, our whole site is running very slowly, I’m not sure what the problem is; that’s Matt’s expertise. But I’ll keep updating here!

 via Twitter Web Client

@mysteriousdays @U2start No kidding. The lovers thing makes me cringe. It’s not even in tune with the song’s conflicted theme.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to mysteriousdays

I’d love to update the full set on the mainpage but our backend is shitting the bed right now. Hopefully sorted soon. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

9. These puns are Running to Stand Still. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Snippets of War and America (West Side Story) in Bullet. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Sounded like Bono said “Edge, for Jacknife, take us there” before Bullet’s first solo. Did I mishear? Reference to Jacknife Lee?

 via Twitter Web Client

Starting to think I should leave the pun game to Matkin after all.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2gigs

8. Bullet the Blues Pie. No, I don’t know what this pun is about either. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

Snippet of California in Streets. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

 via Twitter Web Client

Nice little callback by Bono to a great EP: “we’re not sleeping, we’re wide awake in America”. Then snippet of America #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

@gilson_jr_ Especially since they ARE doing IWF! I was certain OOC would be in the mix.

@tanya_az2 @EdithDourleijn Often just refreshing the page will do the trick.

@jorgeftakeda @ultravioletu2 I know that feeling… European shows are brutal to cover from Australia.

Well while we wait for the band, I’m cracking open a beer. It’s a sunny Saturday arvo here in Wollongong. Cheers, prost, živjeli, sláinte.

@PerryGPapa Will Streets have an almost imperceptible grab from California?! STAY TUUUNED.

Come on U2, hurry up and start. I don’t want the end of the show running past the first bounce of Richmond vs GWS!

 via Twitter Web Client

I thought I’d cocked up timezones and missed the start of the show, but U2 are yet to begin in San Diego. Soon! Soooon. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

@DWilbur3 San Diego County Credit Union. I can see why they’re not using their full name for the stadium name - bit of a mouthful!

Note: when today’s show was announced, the stadium was called Qualcomm. It’s now SDCCU Stadium, and our database is updated to reflect this.

NZ has election blackout laws—but since I’m in Australia and not subject to them: if you’re yet to vote, please vote & vote Labour or Green.

I normally shy away from politics on this account unless it pertains to U2 because that’s not what you’re here for, but indulge me this one:
