Rehearsals in Vancouver, 22 April 2015

Over on the Interference forums, one Vancouver resident, U2FanPeter, has posted a report from outside the Pacific Coliseum, where U2 are currently rehearsing before the Innocence + Experience Tour begins. We have summarised the main points below, and you can read his full post here.

Songs of Innocence: Peter reports most of the new album has been heard, but specifically states that The Troubles has unfortunately not been heard yet. Every Breaking Wave is reportedly a full band version rather than the acoustic version played on the promo tour. One fan with whom Peter spoke also claims to have heard Ordinary Love.

Old songs: a number of classics have been heard. Peter lists Beautiful Day, With or Without You, City of Blinding Lights, Pride, Magnificent, Bad, Even Better Than the Real Thing, and the intro riff of Mysterious Ways.

Most notably, Peter reports that today he heard The Edge play a complete solo version of The Electric Co. It was last performed on 12 February 2006, and its sensational run on the Vertigo Tour is the only time the song has appeared live since 1987.

We will post updates as more information comes to light. If you live in Vancouver and have gone to listen to the rehearsals, feel free to get in touch to let us know what you heard.
