@BonoVoxGS The 2009 European leg? No shows were shot for DVD.
@wind_mill_lane …after all, they can’t stay in North America much longer as the stage needs to get to Europe by early August.
@wind_mill_lane There have been some Boston rumours, but I don’t see where it’s meant to fit into this announced schedule…
OK folks, rumours getting stronger that South American gigs will take place in 2010 before the just-announced North American dates.
@greety The MOS “rap” is Bono’s original lyrics as far as I know. Not sure how many gigs have had it.
2010 North American tour dates announced: Right as the Los Angeles concert finished today, U2’s 2010 North American tour http://url4.eu/eTHt
I’ve updated the 2010 North American tour announcement article with some stats and stuff: http://bit.ly/239crn
Haha, U2.com’s tour page still claims the Athens and Istanbul presales end on “31 November”, not 31 October.
Presales for Oakland, Edmonton, and Toronto begin on TUESDAY! Yes, this Tuesday, 27 October.
The Denver gig will go on sale on 6 November.
The Oakland, Toronto, and Edmonton gigs go on sale on 2 November!
Here we go, 2010 North American tour dates: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
And guess what? 2010 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED. I’ll have them on U2gigs as soon as physically possible!
And that’s the show for tonight, folks. YouTube did a damn good job on the broadcast.
24th and presumably last song is Moment Of Surrender.
With Or Without You does not have Shine Like Stars verse. It’s sadly only been done twice this tour.
23rd is With Or Without You.
And here it is: 22nd is Ultra Violet.
Here’s the Zoobaby intro. This will lead into Ultra Violet.
@BonoVoxGS Yeah, Pride has missed the last 17 shows - it’s a record. Personally, I think it never sounded as good live as it did in studio.
Second encore break now.
Streets did not have the All You Need Is Love snippet today.
@skid63 Not sure if you mean One or Amazing Grace… both leave me cold. Except the Hear Us Coming verse, which is good.
21st is Where The Streets Have No Name.
Now the Amazing Grace snippet…
One has the Hear Us Coming verse.
@Matkin22 I bloody hope they give Drowning Man a run next year. I’m surprised White As Snow didn’t crop up in Stuck’s setlist spot.
20th song, first of encore, is One.
Here’s Desmond Tutu and his speech. He’s on fire more than Edge tonight. ;)
Time for the first encore break.
You’ll Never Walk Alone snippet at the end of Walk On.
19th is Walk On.
@Matkin22 Yep! Though I remain curious about that acoustic MW they rehearsed… it’d beat the neutered electric version they’re doing now.
Bono’s speechifying about Aung San Suu Kyi. 18th is MLK.
No snip in the middle of SBS. This song really sounds so much better this tour - kills the versions on the last two tours.
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Two Tribes snip at the end of Crazy.
To me, UF and Crazy Tonight are the two truly great live songs of the 360 Tour.
Huh, no snip at the start of Crazy Tonight.
Here we goooo. 16th is Crazily Awesome Tonight.
Vertigo has a snip of It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll by the Rolling Stones.
15th is Vertigo.
@RangerPete61 They dropped Pride after the 1st Chicago show I think because they’d run out of passion for it and mediocre crowd response.
Bono didn’t snippet a lyric from Mofo over COBL’s intro today, alas.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
13th is The Unforgettable Fire. :fuckyeah: Volume goes uuup.
@Hoosier2012 IALW is on the Elevation Boston DVD.
12th is Until The End Of The World.
Wish they’d done Your Blue Room instead of IALW. We already have IALW on DVD. Plus, Your Blue Room is sheer awesome.
Eleventh is Unknown Caller.
Edge, if you’re going to play the Explorer, please rock it out with some 11 O’clock Tick Tock, not IALW.
Tenth is In A Little While.
@wowhorse I had it on the speakers, sounded no different to other versions this tour (though admittedly I was in the next room).
@wind_mill_lane It was. ;) They did both remix AND normal versions in Barcelona, 2 July 2009.
Ninth is Elevation.
@atu2 I’d agree with you if it weren’t for Crazy Tonight’s sheer awesomeness.
NLOTH is a bloody great song. Wish it was the opener.
Back in time (with a choc muffin, aw yeah) for No Line On The Horizon in eighth.
Don’t know about the rest of you, but Stuck is my toilet break.
Seventh is Stuck In A Moment.
Alas, no Movin’ On Up. Snip at the end of Still Haven’t Found is Stand By Me.
@MickiMaynard Crazy Tonight will likely be 16th song, so 10 from here.
Evidently the answer to snippetry licensing concerns was “moar snippets!” Hope Movin’ On Up is at the end of Still Haven’t Found.
Yep, here’s Still Haven’t Found in sixth.
@LouisGewirtz Some of them I recognise, some of them are snippets Bono does regularly and I’ve identified in the past.
Bono introduces the band as famous actors. I Still Haven’t Found is clearly next.
Bono rambles about Black Eyed Peas, now a nod to all of us watching on YouTube.
End of B Day has more snips - Beach Boys’ God Only Knows and Daniel Lanois’ The Maker.
In God’s Country snippet in B Day!
@atu2 Really made the song for me, distinguished it from past tours’ versions. Now it’s just Beautiful Day by numbers.
Wonder what Bono will do about snippetry tonight… tone it back due to licensing rights concerns or not?
Fifth is Beautiful Day. Speaking of things I miss, I miss the extended intro it had in Europe and first 5 North American shows.
I really miss MW’s extended solo…
@matkertesz Probably is reading too much into it, but I’d like to believe that anyway. ;)
Fourth is Mysterious Ways.
Instead of yelling out local placenames in Magnificent’s intro, Bono yells out global cities/countries. (Sydney not Melbourne, boo!)
Third is Magnificent.
Don’t know about any of you, but my video buffers/pauses sometimes - audio, touch wood, has been completely solid.
Los Angeles setlist, 25/10: Today, U2 are performing their sole California show for 2009. It is at the Rose Bowl, Pasad http://url4.eu/eRK4
And daaamn that’s an impressive, big venue.
Second is Get On Your Boots.
First song is Breathe. I’ll keep doing the set like any day, in case anybody out there can’t watch. And just for the record too.
And now it segues into Kingdom…
Here we go! Space Oddity’s on.
Love Edge talking about changing songs and surprising fans/themselves when the last three shows have had identical sets.
Thanks to everybody for suggestions, tips, and updates on what I missed!
It works, hurrah! Updating Flash brings the goods. If you can’t get the live stream to work, update Flash Player!
Having no luck on Mac in either Firefox or Safari.
I don’t believe it. The YouTube live thing doesn’t work for me. Just a grey screen where the live video is meant to be.
Black Eyed Peas finished about 5-10 minutes ago. The YouTube broadcast is meant to start in 10 minutes …
RT @atu2 Slash has just joined Black Eyed Peas on stage to do “Sweet Child O’Mine.”
Black Eyed Peas are playing their opening set for U2 right now.
@Matkin22 Yep, Beautiful Day now has 58 known snippets to Bad’s 54.
Should thank @beau99 for bringing Ticketmaster’s listing of that 2010 Toronto gig to my attention.
Another Ticketmaster leak. Concert listed for Rogers Centre, Toronto, on 3 July 2010: http://bit.ly/1O40Uy
As for the soundcheck happening right now, they’re doing Breathe.
Rumours of EBTTRT and NYD being soundchecked earlier. If so, just the crew? Pretty sure Bono wasn’t there yet anyway.
U2’s soundcheck in LA has included Magnificent, Elevation, In A Little While, Unknown Caller, and Until The End Of The World.
Coldplay’s Fix You (shudder) really was snippeted at the end of B Day, Las Vegas. Added to set. Thanks to all who pointed it out!
