Rehearsals in Barcelona, 20/06

Update: Earlier conflicting reports appear to have been mostly reconciled.

Update II, 22/06: EBTTRT was after COBL, not before.

The band continued rehearsals at Camp Nou today, and a couple of new songs have entered the mix. Spanish fansites U2Eastlink and U2Barcelona have both been reporting on the setlist. Based on their information, the band rehearsed the following:

· Intro
· Breathe
· No Line On The Horizon
· Get On Your Boots
· Magnificent
· Beautiful Day
· I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / unknown snippet
· Drowning Man
· Bad
· In A Little While
· Angel Of Harlem
· Unknown Caller
· The Unforgettable Fire
· City Of Blinding Lights
· Even Better Than The Real Thing
· Pride (In The Name Of Love)
· Where The Streets Have No Name
· Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
· With Or Without You
· Walk On
· Vertigo
· Crazy Tonight
· Moment of Surrender

The two new inclusions are Bad and Even Better Than The Real Thing. It is unclear whether Even Better Than The Real Thing was before or after City Of Blinding Lights (update: we have received clarification that it was after); reportedly, the band played it in the form of the Perfecto Mix. There was a speech before Unknown Caller (a printed setlist from rehearsals a couple of days ago refers to a "Space Chat" before Unknown Caller). U2Eastlink reports that Beautiful Day had a sort of "celtic" intro. U2Barcelona states that MLK was during a Desmond Tutu speech.

As a statistical point of interest, Even Better Than The Real Thing was last performed on the Elevation Tour's first leg, on 9 June 2001. It is now just the third song from U2's 1990s albums to be rehearsed in Barcelona, along with two other songs from Achtung Baby - One and Ultra Violet.
