No(?) rehearsals in Barcelona, 24/06; audio from 22/06 rehearsal

Update: Reports have now appeared online that U2 did briefly rehearse very late in the evening. See this article for news.

The big day of the tour's first show is drawing quite close now. However, not a whole lot has been happening at Camp Nou. The band seem to have taken the night off, reportedly to attend a soccer game. There are presently unconfirmed claims that some rehearsals may have taken place earlier in the afternoon. We will update once we have confirmation or denial.

However, all is not lost for the present. Some audio from a previous rehearsal is now on YouTube. Starting from the 1:10 mark, you can listen to parts of Where The Streets Have No Name and Walk On from the 22/06 rehearsal:

And if you're really keen for a setlist and some random trivia today, there is a set from this day ... 22 years ago: 24 June 1987 in Belfast. It is of interest as it is the only European show of the Joshua Tree Tour at which both Stand By Me and Where The Streets Have No Name were played. The two songs appeared consecutively to open a show just once more, on 22 September 1987 in Foxboro; they were played in the same set at eight other US shows in 1987 but never consecutively.
