I uploaded a YouTube video — U2 London 2009-08-14 Major Tom http://bit.ly/VmxSQ
So U2.com announces the UF remaster and can’t even be bothered giving tracklists for the bonus CD and DVD. Way to go.
As I expected, Oliver’s Army was snippeted in SBS in Toronto last night. Added to set. Thanks Trey L.!
Last I heard, @Gerzu, Mexico may be included in the mid-2010 North American leg, but that’s somewhat old info.
.@DolphinPM There are indeed rumours Portugal will be in U2’s 2010 itinerary. :)
Should note this is the first time Stay has been played at consecutive shows on 360.
Set summary and stats: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Yep, looks like that’s all, everybody. Assume there were more snippets - will add them when we find out.
Back to the set: 23rd and probably last is Moment Of Surrender.
Damnit! RT @EdgeFest No shine like stars
.@atu2 Last I was told, no way to fit U2 in Feb/March in Australia. Stadiums booked for footy, other gigs already.
As always, take this with a grain of salt until it’s officially confirmed.
Those who asked: I’ve heard 2nd leg in Europe should be Aug/Sept 2010, after the US but before Southern Hemisphere.
22nd is With Or Without You.
.@atu2 I think announcement WILL be US dates, mid-2010. I’ve heard South America/Australia/NZ will be Oct/Nov ’10.
@ritababy Sorry, I meant 2 consecutive shows having identical sets.
Ultra Violet opens encore.
That is, of course, excluding opening night in Barcelona being identical to the dress rehearsal set the night before.
Assuming the encore is its normal self, the set is identical to Chicago II. 1st time U2 have played same set 2 shows in a row on 360.
RT @MickiMaynard ASSK and Bishop Tutu both got warmer receptions in T.O. than Chicago.
And that, of course, leads into Streets.
Amazing Grace snip at end of One.
Yes, I am still working on putting all instances of Hear Us Coming on the site. Just very busy so work is slow.
One has the Hear Us Coming verse.
… leads into One, as per usual now.
Bishop Tutu’s grrrreat speech now …
18th is Walk On.
No word on SBS snips yet. 17th is MLK. Goodbye Pride?
Bet that Bono snippets Oliver’s Army in SBS tonight.
16th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
If any song gets the crowd going, it’s this: RT @MickiMaynard Crazy Tonight dance mix is hot. Everyone in my section is on their feet.
15th is Crazy Tonight.
Vertigo has a Pump It Up snip at the end.
14th is Vertigo.
13th is City Of Blinding Lights.
.@atu2 I also have heard these rumours about next year’s dates being announced soon.
12th is The Unforgettable Fire. Or should I say, The Unforgettably Awesome & Soon To Be Remastered Fire.
Set identical to Chicago II so far. Will Pride be cut again? Fingers crossed, though I’d rather cut the lifeless One & WOWY.
11th is Stay.
Receiving numerous reports that mobile phone networks are seriously overloaded in Toronto thanks to the gig.
Until The End Of The World is 10th, after Unknown Caller.
This would be much easier if I were THERE. Somebody want to pay me enough so I can quit History and just report U2 sets? ;)
Very happy to see Your Blue Room has stayed in the setlist.
OK, clarified. YBR was eighth, UnknownCaller ninth.
YOUR BLUE ROOM! And Unknown Caller. Problem: not clear which was played first. Suspect YBR, then UC. Anyone confirm?
B Day had Alison snip. Thx @MickiMaynard.
Was kind of hoping M Ways or NYD would take the 7th spot, oh well. Here’s hoping for Your Blue Room next!
Seventh is Elevation.
Sixth is ISHFWILF. No word on B Day snippetry.
Even ZooTV had a change. 5th Zoo show, 7 March 1992, The Fly moved 2 spots.
Opening 5 songs remain unchanged in selection and order since first gig. The start of the set has NEVER been this static.
Fifth is Beautiful Day.
Fourth is Magnificent
@ritababy Ax here today. :)
Third is Boots.
Second is NLOTH.
You’ll never guess the opener. What, you say it’s Breathe? However did you know!
Intro music playing in Toronto.
Toronto I setlist, 16/09: Today, U2 are playing their first of two concerts in Toronto, and first of three Canadian conc http://url4.eu/S91G
But re: 3 songs after Bad on UF remaster CD2, assume prob just snippets. See set: http://www.u2gigs.com/sh…
Re: UF remaster tracklist - I know, am thrilled. Will post when officially confirmed. See @atu2 for tracklist reported by fansites.
Snow Patrol done. Stand by for U2.
Snow Patrol are currently warming up the crowd in Toronto.
Added 2 brief snips to Chicago II: Blue Suede Shoes at end of Boots, Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough at end of Crazy.
@atu2 Making of UF doco is on the Slane DVD.
The Crazy soundcheck was the remix. Assume remix unless stated otherwise. :)
Toronto soundcheck today: YBR (instrumental), Crazy, some of Walk On, MOS intro, more of YBR, MOS (inst.) again.
