Rehearsals in Auckland - probably crew rather than U2 themselves

Today, rehearsals have taken place at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland. We believe that these were by the crew rather than U2 themselves, though it is possible that some of the band were involved. No vocals have been heard, so it is unlikely that Bono participated.

We would like to extend sincere thanks to contributor Simon for his detailed reports of proceedings. Two bass riffs were heard around 4:30pm local time; they were:

Crazy Tonight (remix)
Get On Your Boots

At 6:30pm, Simon then reported the following tracks:

Recording over PA of Neil Armstrong's "one small step for man" moon landing quote
City Of Blinding Lights, keys
City Of Blinding Lights, bass riff
Unrecognisable drum rehearsals
One Tree Hill, in Simon's words "hint only"
City Of Blinding Lights instrumental, twice
Vertigo intro

And in his most recent report, at 7:10pm, Simon reported the following songs, still with no vocals:

Moment Of Surrender
Unknown jam
Quick One Tree Hill riff
One Tree Hill

That is all for now. The chances of One Tree Hill seem to be looking good! Many thanks again to Simon.
