Everyone seems to take the route I have to go. Will have some clips uploaded soon. Good show but a bit cool. Liked the snips Bono did.
Ax’s random setlist stat: today’s main set was the first since 21/03/98 to actually be closed by Streets.
That’s all. Got another clip I always wanted: full MOS and the band walking off stage :)
All you need is love snip
Tutu speech / Streets
Never walk alone snip

Rock the casbah snip
Screen not extending today.
UF, Cobl, Vertigo

On my way in. http://yfrog.com/649pexj
Took some vids at the gate and go in now myself.
Gates are open now. Ppl get in one by one. Very civilized.
They’re giving out masks. Gates are still closed.
They just played smthg I could not recognize. Too bad.
Q moved forward. Still rehearsal inside. Nloth again. http://yfrog.com/1kwprj
Nloth now. The Q started to move forward one by one to the next barrier.
Security prepares. http://yfrog.com/1k7fyj
Security is taking their positions slowly. The wait for these ppl should be over soon. http://yfrog.com/272mmj
They just closed the gap in one queue. http://yfrog.com/acm4wj
That’s a lot of beer. What time gates will open? http://yfrog.com/6wbtuj
This is the other Q. Haven’t seen a less crowded stadium sor far on this tour. Maybe it’s the bad weather http://yfrog.com/6w69034…
The flash coloured cap ppl are selling ear protection. http://yfrog.com/1j7bwj
Haven’t seen this one before. http://yfrog.com/2lvexj
This is the beginning of the queue. I can see Simona sleeping right on the rail. Good luck to her. http://yfrog.com/acczkj
It’s like 50-100 people more in the queues. Everyone of them should be FOS.

The city shirt is down to 300kr again. Let’s get one.
I’m going to the stadium now. It’s a bit early but I enjoy the rain and storm so much ;-)
I’ve taken a few clips around Ullevi and merged them together here: http://bit.ly/ptyVR
Here are the photos just taken around Ullevi stadium: http://bit.ly/6mX7v
@AlexLoos The ppl here look less international so far.
@lilind I’m back at the hotel now.
Something to read before the shows. http://yfrog.com/1u82xj
Whatever … http://yfrog.com/9t4vtj
2nd queue. http://yfrog.com/7gt9fsj
@heliocamargo only some seats are covered so I expect a wet and stormy show tonight. Must be not a bad thing at all.
The city shirt is 325kr. One stand is just ready and has all prices.
@heliocamargo ams1 was 35, ams2 30 and Dublin 25€.
They’re just counting ppl here. http://yfrog.com/amf5kj
City shirt will be 300kr which equals to 30€. http://yfrog.com/2naryaj
Preparing the merchandise stand. http://yfrog.com/278c8j
I’m just thinking about buying myself a much more solid rain jacket than I have with me.
Just posted 170 user photos from Milan, Berlin, Amsterdam and Dublin to our gallery at u2gigs.com: http://bit.ly/1arcdQ
@jenboberg I heard there are under some trees. Maybe the heavy rain forced them to go somewhere else.
@u2_se Where is it then?
I’m back at the point where I started and there is no queue at Ullevi yet. Wish I had my ticket with me ;-)
Whatever … ;-) http://yfrog.com/6jhj9j

Dark sky and rain as I just arrived in Gothenburg. http://yfrog.com/7g28bpj
BTW, really need a lift to Chorzow as mine just had to cancel the shows next week. Contact me via DM on Twtr or u2gigs.com if you can help.
Leaving for Gothenburg shows in a few minutes. Better have all the U2 equipment there in time ;-)
Sorry to all of you waiting for their concert photos to be posted on u2gigs.com. I’ll work on them tomorrow. Spare time is rare these days.

Forgot to note in my article: yesterday’s set was first of the tour to not include either of Angel Of Harlem or Desire.
@Gravy1199 They were 3 good but not great shows. Enjoyed myself but underwhelmed. Glad I came to Europe to see more than U2. Cheers, Ax.

Actually, @U2Log and anyone else, may be slightly late, 15 mins. Look for blonde albino guy with cane. Most recognisable person on earth.

Oh yeah, and the mainpage article about today’s set is now online: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Ax back. Clearly Matt and I disagree on today’s show. :) I’m just looking forward to something more interesting on Monday…
