U2.com - Announcing the Rose Bowl Webcast and Filming: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Thanks to Jeff M., we have received documentary proof U2 performed at The Blue Lagoon in Sligo, Ireland on 18/02/1980 and 12/05/1980.
Today’s full set, stats, etc: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
That’s all for today folks, see you again in a couple of days when U2 hit Phoenix.
Oh yeah, and With Or Without You is still lacking Shine Like Stars, unfortunately.
The only other show on the second leg to have 24 songs was the first NYC gig, 23 September 2009.
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
@jpstarkey She’s The One/Desire was a medley; we don’t have a way of listing medleys; Desire was the minor part so it’s listed as snip.
23rd is With Or Without You.
@jpstarkey It debuted in Tampa, it’s basically the Zoobaby speaking phrases from the tour, inc Space Oddity, “what time is it in the world?”
22nd is Ultra Violet.
Here’s that new-ish Zoobaby intro…
Second encore break now.
@atu2 Did you time Stand By Me? ;) (Plus, MLK is a stand-alone song, Amazing Grace is dependent on One/Streets.)
All You Need Is Love snip in Streets.
@pappy90 I was quoting that at the gigs during the speech!
21st is Streets, naturally.
There is no Hear Us Coming verse in One today. The Amazing Grace snip at the end is there.
@royalsreview Soon? Should’ve retired it a couple of tours ago if you ask me.
Encore opener, 20th song of the night, is One.
Time for Desmond Tutu’s speech. Gee, he’s really on form today. ;)
Encore break time.
Snippet of You’ll Never Walk Alone at the end of Walk On.
19th, of course, is Walk On.
18th is MLK.
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Was that the Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough snip? Wasn’t paying close enough attention, oops.
Snip of Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) at start of Crazy.
16th is Crazy Tonight.
15th is Vertigo.
Well Bono, in Melbourne it’s 2:10pm tomorrow.
Bono likes that “what time is it in the world?” line; start of Magnif and before “time won’t leave me as I am” in COBL.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
13th is The Unforgettable Fire.
@pappy90 Danny! Still the same re: Australia, should happen in November ’10. No new specifics.
Twelfth is Until The End Of The World. I hope Unknown Caller went down well and stays in the set. It’s one of the better NLOTH live tracks.
It’s been almost a month since Unknown Caller was last played, 24 September in NYC.
Haha, and they flub the intro. Bono: “you can also hear Edge tuning up”.
Eleventh is Unknown Caller! It’s back!
@ClaytonsKitten Maybe he’s been reading what I’ve been posting. ;)
@LouisGewirtz You there in Miami should get the chance to welcome them in, oh, July 2010 … ;)
Tenth is In A Little While, only the second time it’s been played on the North American leg!
Holy shit, Bono gets it right that U2 haven’t performed in Oklahoma for 26 years!
@LouisGewirtz I’m not so shocked Norman isn’t sold out… I’m surprised they’re even playing there in the first place!
Ninth is Elevation.
Eighth is No Line On The Horizon.
Seventh is Stuck In A bleeding Moment. Sorry, I’m disappointed they’ve stopped rotating it with Stay.
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t shed a tear, just as long as new batteries work for me … (they do)
Snippet of Stand By Me at the end of Still Haven’t Found.
And the batteries in my mouse have died. I still haven’t found the reliable power source I’m looking for.
Bono rambles a bit, now sixth song is I Still Haven’t Found.
Aha, Beautiful Day snip was God Only Knows by the Beach Boys. Thanks @atu2!
Bono apparently thinks having BEP as an opener is a “great honour”.
Well, I’ve no idea what that snippet is at the end of Beautiful Day.
@U2Pufferfish Spontaneous setlist changes have happened at a couple of U2 gigs I’ve seen in the past!
Fifth is Beautiful Day.
@prbiker15 Yep, printed set indicates 24 songs! Well, we’ll see about that one. I’ll be pleased if they do it.
Fourth is Mysterious Ways.
@U2Pufferfish I’m not going anywhere. ;) I’ve long since learnt not to trust printed sets 100% anyway, heh.
@beatsc Intro music is David Bowie’s Space Oddity, seguing into an unreleased U2 song called Kingdom.
Of course, that doesn’t have snippets and other things, and U2 do sometimes deviate a little from their printed sets…
If you can’t be arsed staying for the full gig, apparently here’s the printed set: http://img8.yfrog.com/i/…
Third is Magnificent.
Second is Get On Your Boots.
@CollCostello Nope, we’re just fans who know how to do what we do very well. (And enjoy pointing out U2.com’s mistakes, heh)
First song is Breathe.
Intro music playing in Norman …
@atu2 24 song set, in Norman of all places? I’ll believe it when they play it…
Norman setlist, 18/10: Today, U2 are performing in Norman, Oklahoma. This is the first time U2 have played in Oklahoma http://url4.eu/dNyx
@LouisGewirtz No chance of Gloria, Bad’s probably not likely either but it’s an outside possibility for Vancouver, the last gig.
Black Eyed Peas are mercifully done. Waiting on U2 now.
Via @AndyU2, the band’s crew today soundchecked With Or Without You, Vertigo, City Of Blinding Lights, Moment Of Surrender.
Black Eyed Peas are opening for U2 for the first time, on stage now. My sympathies, Oklahoma.
Hi folks, U2 are performing in Oklahoma today for the first time in 26 years. Not all seats sold, upper level is unused.
