Now here’s a snippetwatch. 1984-11-02, London - Bad has Elvis Presley And America! Thanks James H.!
Vertigo today had a snippet of Rock ‘n’ Roll High School by the Ramones. Thanks Steve for pointing it out!
Today’s full set, stats, etc.: http://bit.ly/481pbT
Yep, that’s all. Springsteen did 17 song set inc. encore last night, but it’s just ~10 (depending on how you count things!) for U2.
@DocH32 Not sure if MW was even complete! It segued into Where Is The Love, presumably no slide solo.
Show might be over…
Now, the spoiler set posted earlier ended with Beautiful Day. Is this it, then? Or will there be more…?
@EdgeFest Jagger and Springsteen may not be second raters, but BEP, well…
U2 now doing Beautiful Day. No guests on stage for this.
And now the band are doing Stuck In A Moment with Mick Jagger.
OK, I’m going to count One as a snippet of Where Is The Love until proven otherwise.
Fergie’s still on for Gimme Shelter, by the way.
One might have just been a snippet in Where Is The Love… not entirely clear.
And now Mick Jagger has come out to join U2 for Gimme Shelter!
Speaking of Where Is The Love, it has segued into One. WTF.
Where Is The Love totally needs a Love And Peace Or Else snippet.
MW segues into Where Is The Love with the Black Eyed Peas.
Sixth is Mysterious Ways.
@U2_News Hilarious! Though I’m not counting Because The Night 3 times in the set since the “third” time was just the intro.
As no surprise to anybody, Bono preceded I Still Haven’t Found with a speech.
Now that they’ve got Because The Night down, fifth is I Still Haven’t Found with Bruce. Remind anybody of this?: http://ow.ly/xOqP
Guess I’ll add Because The Night to the set as both song three and four then!
RT @ndmusic Bono: “How about one more time?” They do “Because the Night” over to fix a Patti Smith mistake and then do the open a 3rd time
Because The Night has been repeated, due to missed cues and problems in the first attempt.
Bono has previously performed Because The Night as a guest at a Bruce Springsteen gig, 2002-11-23.
Third is Because The Night with Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith!
Second is Magnificent.
First song of the night is Vertigo.
U2 will be on very soon…
@nielstenhave Not sure yet. Will post if there is.
@RyanCJW I was just about to say you might want to redirect it. ;)
Metallica also covered Queen’s Stone Cold Crazy, and closed with Enter Sandman. U2 next!
@Matkin22 I’d never buy an ATYCLB remaster anyway! Not unless they changed the tracklist to TGBHF x11.
…then Ray Davies for You Really Got Me and All Day And All Of The Night. Quite the celebration for the Rock Hall.
Metallica have brought the special guests. Sweet Jane and White Light/White Heat with Lou Reed, Iron Man and Paranoid with Ozzy Osbourne…
@Matkin22 Didn’t an early version of the song have a Jagger vocal? Makes sense they’d do it I suppose, but urgh.
@Matkin22 I don’t believe it. Bah.
@Matkin22 Disown them and turn this into Axver’sAlternateRealityU2Gigs where they play Heartland live often. ;)
Then Metallica do Sweet Jane with Lou Reed! Wow.
Metallica may’ve opened with For Whom The Bell Tolls, not sure if it was before or after One. Then Bob Seger’s Turn The Page.
At the Rock Hall gig, Jeff Beck is done, Metallica on now. Opened with One, but not U2’s One. ;) U2 will follow them…
And, of course, thanks to @u2start for putting me onto the snip in the first place!
Thanks to Adrian for linking me to Brussels audio, I’ve confirmed Native Son snip by Edge in Vertigo on 2005-06-10. Set: http://ow.ly/xN7W
At the Rock Hall, Jeff Beck has covered People Get Ready with Sting. No Bono? I’m stunned he resisted running out for this number!
I’d pay good money to see U2 and Metallica join forces and play a medley of their respective songs titled One.
Metallica still to come, then U2 close out the night.
Aretha Franklin Rock Hall set: Baby I Love You, Chain Of Fools (with Annie Lennox), New York New York, Think (with Lenny Kravitz), Respect.
@atu2 Hey - ask about a RAH remaster/Lovetown DVD. We know they have footage of 17, 18, 19 November 1989, Sydney.
@atu2 I want to know why U2 never answers Bono’s “what time is it in the world?” with 11 O’clock Tick Tock…
@Matkin22 Not yet… turns out I don’t actually have the bootleg of the show, for one thing.
@atu2 I’ve a whole boatload of setlist questions! And the obligatory “when are they coming to Australia?”
I’m drafting a U2gigs mainpage article… according to my typos, U2 are playing at the Rock “Hall Of Game”.
At the Rock Hall 25th right now, Aretha Franklin is performing.
I suspect U2 rehearsed Gimme Shelter with Mick Jagger. They soundchecked it in Vancouver.
Patti Smith at one point joined U2 and Bruce. Mick Jagger rehearsed with U2. Songs unknown for both.
U2 and Bruce Springsteen rehearsed I Still Haven’t Found. U2 and the Black Eyed Peas rehearsed Where Is The Love.
