@IamBRM_ But depends if you want to be on the rail, really.
@IamBRM_ I’d never camp! In 2015 people got really good spots turning up just an hour or two before doors, because of the good stage design.
Stand Up Comedy’s little old lady might no longer be U2’s worst lyric.
I wonder how many times during the #U2eiTour people will ask if American Soul counts as a Volcano snippet. 100x? 1,000x?
@markdamato None as yet!
@TyTy1124 I probably will, but closer to the tour. Try to get some clues from what they do at promo dates.
@fakebono Oh, you can read my mind?
@Hadfield_Blue Yes but it will be announced later.
And I (Ax) am sorry to Matkin that Toronto misses out. But I learnt in March this year that the train to Montréal is a good ride!
Matt and I agree: “NYCB Live, Home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum” is the dumbest official full venue name in our database.
@georgedias One was stadium. This is a considerably smaller arena.
@tanya_az2 FAQ says you are eligible to be verified. I’d ask Support just in case you don’t need to resubscribe yet.
@adammajorcsik They would need to bring back the claw just to support it all. Original design was 225k lb - over max limit of 180k lb!
If you used your code for JT Tour presale, looks like you also need to renew U2 subscription early to get EI presale? #U2eiTour
Seriously U2, no concert in Toronto? I really hope you add one before presales open. That has rather spoiled my day… Matkin #U2eiTour
@adammajorcsik Probably because this year was stadiums!
And very glad to see St Louis gets a #U2eiTour show after the cancelled show in September this year.
The #U2eiTour concert in Uniondale, New York is U2’s first show there since 9 March 1992 on ZooTV.
The North American leg of #U2eiTour ends with U2’s first EVER show in Newark, New Jersey on 29 June 2018.
The #U2eiTour begins with U2’s first concert in Tulsa, Oklahoma since 9 June 1983!
Ax here. It’s black out since it’s 4am in Australia. Ready for the announcement, ready for the tour, ready to say I’m glad to be awake.
@atu2 Imagine it turns out to be Coldplay!
Sorry, that’s 1.5 hours. Guess that’s why I’m not a mathematician! #U2eiTour
Regardless it seems we will at least know North America in 2.5 hours #U2eiTour
Rumours summary: Rehearsals in Canada (not Van), Vegas and LA in May, Boston in June, Europe maybe Sept, Oceania in Nov #U2eiTour
@nsauerpauer People who were at the Blackout shoot have already heard 1/4 of it.
@enjoytheclaw What, you only want news already announced? What do you have against rumours?
You might want to get other commitments out of your way, folks. This is 1pm US east/4am Aussie east, rumoured album… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…
Our U2 2018 tour rumours article is updated with the latest sweet sweet rumours to emerge since initial publication: u2gigs.com/article1243.ht…
markpeterboro I would like to be the first person to point out that it will be Christmas next month
@PlayboiiFC The itinerary, not just random individual dates.
@maddsy1 Not for your average Aussie fan, sadly. But I need to be up to help out on this site!
@lucas_venencia We’ve no information on that right now, but you would definitely expect more than 2 in the biggest markets.
@gpthe3 The source is confident about 1pm. I’d much prefer 9am US eastern, I’d still be up then!
Good lord I (Ax) hope the announcement is not at 1pm US eastern because that’s 4am here in Australia. Please guys, 3pm/6am at least.
Do you need some hot and spicy U2 tour rumours for 2018? Because we’ve got ‘em: u2gigs.com/article1243.ht…
@YouGrowWildS Same here. It’s probably just random.
@davec82 Yep, nice catch! We’ve added it to the set. Thanks!
@davec82 Thanks, we will give it a check!
Oh, is it Larry’s birthday today? Well then, Happy Birthday Larry! I’m singing Party Girl at home for you. Probably good you cant hear it!
bethandbono Bono said maybe 25 words to me when I met him. Nine of them were “13 is the beginning and the end. Stay 13.”
When U2 snippeted “The Most Beautiful Girl In The World”, it became the 1000th song in our database!
@markpeterboro I (Ax) am delighted that you make them!
u2songs We asked about the single this week rumour. Told it won’t be this week after all, but will be “very soon”. Sorry for any disappointment!
@Rodrivox They played it 17 times on I+E
@_JamesMiller_ I’m kind of wary of looking back to see how wrong I was, hahaha.
Thanks to everyone who mixlred, periscoped, commented, complained, and even blocked across the tour. See you again! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
The best #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 setlist remains that from the second show, Seattle. I’m glad such a great city got that honour.
Ax checking in, since flight taking its sweet time to depart, and what a shame no 40. Glad IWF got a run. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
That’s all, folks. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
One last song. I Will Follow. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Invisible snippet #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
One, dedicated to the audience #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I’d say this could be the last Ultraviolet ever, but… #U2AchtungBaby2022
The only other two tours without a full 40 are ZooTV and Elevation. But those two got it as a snippet. No 40 snip on #U2TheJoshuaTree2017!
Ultraviolet! I still love this song. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I (Ax) am just boarding a flight. Hope to get off to see something special in the encore. Fingers crossed for 40. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Best Thing is next up. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Hey Ax, how is your back on the bumpy bus?
Live Forever snippeted a second time tonight. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
A scintillating set so far. So much more than opening night. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Daniel Lanois joins for the final verse! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Mothers of the Disappeared… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
The Shadowman exits… Tour highlight for sure. Hope this isn’t goodbye. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
One Tree Hill is next. And here is a stat Ax will like: including snippets, this is the song’s 100th appearance! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Love Me Do briefly mentioned at the end of Trip. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@davidguarino I won’t be shocked if they start with just 1-2 and it ends up 3-4 as tour progresses.
@Flyersgirl65 Given they’ve avoided Exit for 30 years and Bono finds it uncomfortable to sing, I doubt it’ll be back despite its quality.
Seems fair to me. I’d expect 2-3 per show with maybe 4-5 total across tour. But could blow out with AU/NZ shows. twitter.com/ekstewie/statu…
Surprised people so pessimistic about RTSS’s future. It’ll be back. Tonight was its 397th performance. It’ll crack 400. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@maum27oli Seriously. Hope this tour has made the band realise it should not go anywhere.
Exception might be EI shows in Australia/NZ to make up for skipping them this year, like extra ATYCLB songs at 2006 shows.
And this is likely another: Red Hill Mining Town. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Ax’s prediction re future of JT songs 4-11:
Played again: RTSS
Played in specific locales: IGC, OTH, Mothers
Unlikely: Trip, Exit
Some songs will almost certainly not be played again after tonight. This may well be the first of them. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Running to Stand Still #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Black Dog and War snippets #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
With or Without You (minus Shine Like Stars) is followed by Bullet. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I Still Haven’t Found #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
The Tree breaks through the soil for the final time… #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
This is what happens when you’re bouncing around on an uncomfortable bus! Good to have you here to catch my errors, Matkin. ;)
Pride (In the Name of LOVE!) #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
The Joahua Tree? I think somebody has been listening to a ripoff…
Like all #U2TheJoahuaTree2017 shows, the last one begins with SBS and NYD.
@Bernardo_DF Thanks we fixed the location.
@patrickmoraes_ Ah, I mucked up, the Invisible snippet is now visible!
@patrickmoraes_ Huh, that one should be there. I might’ve messed up something on the backend, will check.
@patrickmoraes_ I only recall hearing the California snippet…?
Tomorrow is Brazil 3. We won’t be in a position to do full coverage but I’ll try to pop in when I can to provide updates.
That’s the end. Same set as last night. First time this tour that two shows in the same city have had identical sets. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Snippet of Invisible at the end of One. Speaking personally I much prefer Hear Us Coming or Drowning Man. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
21. In case the speech didn’t tip you off, it’s One. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
It’s speech time. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
20. Ultra Violet #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@mich40u2 Ah great, thank you!
@AntonioMbass Yep. Not sure at which show they did it first, but it’s been par for the course in South America.
19. The Best Thing #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
End of Vertigo has a snippet of It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
18. Vertigo, with a snippet of I Can’t Get No Satisfaction in the intro. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Yeah that comes across as notably loud just on the bootleg. twitter.com/gnoccofritto/s…
17. Elevation #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I have no idea what Bono is snippeting in Beautiful Day. Guessing this is a Portuguese-language song. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Let’s get everyone’s opinions. Loudest U2 crowd you’ve experienced? twitter.com/jerevenencia13…
16. Beautiful Day #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
That’s it for the main set. Encore break now. No El Pueblo Vencera at the end of Mothers. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Hey this is pretty cool! twitter.com/vwithl/status/…
Bono at the start of Mothers: “censorship … Brazil is not going back”. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
15, Mothers of the Disappeared. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Exit has Wise Blood and Eeny Meeny like every other night of tour. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
14. Time to Exit. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
@AntonioMbass No, I proclaim One Tree Hill the eternal number one of The Joshua Tree. All debates revolve around second.
@BrianovichIV That one’s absolutely top 4.
13. The best song on the album. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
12. Trip Through Your Wires. It was, of course, preceded by Running, Red Hill, and In God’s Country. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
I just need to pop out for a few minutes. You know what the next songs are. Back in a few.
Bullet also has the usual America snippet. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
8. Bullet the Blue Sky. It has a snippet of War in the first solo. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
7. With or Without You #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Bono in Still Haven’t Found: “Take it to church now! The church of Neymar! A church not made with… feet.” #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
6. “You’re back for more! Wouldn’t be the same without you.” I Still Haven’t Found. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Streets has the little snippet of California. #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
5. Time for Brazil’s second joshua tree: it’s Where the Streets Have No Name #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
