Confirmed a brief Mofo snippet at start of COBL. Added to Boston II set. First Pop ref of any kind at a 360 gig.
So, Bad has 54 known snippets, and Beautiful Day is now up to 53. I think Bad may be about to lose its snippet crown…
@ac_83 Maybe U2 didn’t feel Breathe worked elsewhere, though it was rehearsed mid-mainset in Barca. I think it just got lost in the shuffle.
Full set, stats, etc (should be more snips later): http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Just to confirm, MOS was closer; show’s over. No Pride OR Breathe!
@dougmiestergen Most snippeted song is Send In The Clowns. Or Shine Like Stars if you count it (Hear Us Coming will beat it once done).
@dougmiestergen Mofo opened 93 Popmart gigs and has not reappeared since.
Can’t see them adding something after MOS - but Bad would rule.
23rd and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
No Bad for Boston? I didn’t want my “business as usual” prediction to be correct, especially not after the surprises at the start.
Yep, WOWY next, 22nd song of the night.
Probably WOWY next, but here’s hoping they do Bad for Boston.
21st is Ultra Violet, opening encore.
Encore break …
@comay You know I won’t say no to One Tree Hill! That plus A Sort Of Homecoming=best U2 set ever, regardless of what else is played.
I’ve no idea what to predict after Streets. Business as usual? Bad closing main set? Changed encore featuring Breathe and Bad..?
Amazing Grace snip after One, leads into Streets, 20th song.
19th is One, preceded by the grrrrreat Bishop Tutu.
Check out @bobmcnulty for some good live pictorial updates.
Walk On is 18th, after MLK. Well, not EVERYTHING is shaken up tonight.
No way! RT @atu2 Sherry says Bono sang the first two lines of Mofo at the start of City of Blinding Lights.
17th is MLK. So no Pride again? Or is the set shaken up further down the track?
16th is Sunday Bloody Sunday. Will Pride follow or won’t it? I’ve already predicted it won’t…
15th is Crazy Tonight.
Of the truckloads of Vertigo snips, SFB is my favourite. Glad I heard it in Boston last tour; kept hoping for it in Aust to no avail.
Vertigo included Stories For Boys snippet! (Thx @atu2)
14th is Vertigo.
13th song is City Of Blinding Lights.
@srj68 If I had written the set, the opener would’ve been 11 O’clock Tick Tock, not Magnificent! ;)
And in 12th? The Unforgettable Fire.
There was a King Of Pain snippet at the end of Beautiful Day, by the way.
Rest of main set prediction: Usual from UF to Streets at end, sans Pride. Maybe Bad after Streets?
@dougmiestergen Actually, I’m Willie Williams (depending on who you ask anyway!). ;)
My first call was the right call - 11th is Stay.
I know I’ve already predicted Stay for 11th, but also wondering if it’ll be Desire, as it has been nearly played lately.
Tenth is … I guessed it, Until The End Of The World!
@Hoosier2012 Yes, YBR was seventh.
If we’re playing Predict-a-set, then UTEOTW and Stay next. How long can my luck last?
Looks like I got it again. Ninth is Unknown Caller.
I’m predicting Unknown Caller next, but wouldn’t mind even more of a shake up.
Eighth is Beautiful Day. Who called it!
Seventh is … YOUR BLUE ROOM!
I think today’s soundcheck may have been informative. Expecting YBR next, followed by Beautiful Day.
Sixth is Elevation.
RT @U2start I wonder how many interference folks have made a mess of their pants with this setlist? [Haha, so do I!]
Fifth is I Still Haven’t Found…
Opening with four NLOTH songs = goneburgers. Wow. I was somewhat suspecting Breathe may have just been shuffled to fourth.
Fourth is MYSTERIOUS WAYS.
Third is Boots.
Still think NLOTH itself would be ideal opener, but very glad about today’s change.
Yep, NLOTH is second.
Think 2nd is NLOTH. Awaiting confirmation.
31st show of tour (32nd inc. dress rehearsal) and they finally change the opener!
First song in Boston is … MAGNIFICENT.
Intro music playing in Boston now.
Boston II setlist, 21/09: U2 are today performing their second show in the Boston area, at Gillette Stadium in nearby Fo http://url4.eu/UauY
@BallinMVP Don’t think U2 likely to play New York in NYC. Didn’t on Vertigo, not soundchecked yet. But stranger things have happened!
@VegasU2360 Unfortunately, neither of us will be in Vegas in person.
Snow Patrol done in Boston. U2’s crew came on stage during Shut Your Eyes.
Snow Patrol warming up crowd at the moment. This is the last show they open for U2 on 360.
Speaking of soundchecks, Toronto I’s soundcheck on 16/07 also featured Elevation and Bad. Added to database. Thanks @Matkin22!
Hi folks, Ax here for Boston II today. U2 soundchecked earlier: intro music, Magnificent, Your Blue Room, Beautiful Day.
