We heard Bono is expected to attend the Chelsea Clinton wedding today.
Our skepticism in yesterday’s article was on the mark; Bono is still not in Turin. See update here: http://u2.gs/78
@JoeFahey93 Hah, no kidding. Article took longer than expected after I realised I couldn’t function without breakfast. ;)
@ritababy Ax today. I’m handling all the daily summaries at the moment. :)
Turin Friday wrap-up: http://u2.gs/78
OK, I’m here; today’s Turin evening wrap-up coming soon …
Friday soundcheck in Turin: http://u2.gs/77
Lighting tests at Turin continued past midnight; today’s article updated with webcam captures: http://u2.gs/76
Turin update for Thursday: http://u2.gs/76
A soundcheck in Turin?: http://u2.gs/75 - no Bono, probably band’s techs.
@U2start Not to worry, found some sources. :) Wish we could have some certainty about this stuff …
U2 to play Etihad Stadium in Melbourne later this year? http://u2.gs/74
@U2start Out of curiosity, what’s your source?
@Matkin22 That’s an idea. Get in touch with me about it - will DM you my e-mail address in case you don’t have it.
@Matkin22 …WP:V has become a joke. Most people there couldn’t ref academically to save themselves, yet enforce baffling reqs.
@Matkin22 …Wikipedia isn’t like it used to be, which is why I (Ax) don’t even edit the NZ History sections any more…
@Matkin22 What bollocks - would’ve thought any of the fansites would’ve been preferable to U2.com. (cont.)
@Matkin22 Awesome! Though … why on earth do you reference the unreliable U2.com for setlist data?
Wednesday happenings in Turin - crew test light and sound, more photos, more rumours: http://u2.gs/73
Today’s Turin activity: sound and light tests by crew, NOT by U2. Article coming soon.
@GnoccoFritto This part has been removed from the article since we’ve tweeted earlier.
The mentioned article also states they will continue to rehearse indoor in a venue called Palaisozaki which is close to the stadium.
Looks like the band is finally in Turin and rehearsed new material (Italian article): http://u2.gs/72
No news from Turin yet today, but new photos of the Claw on Facebook: http://u2.gs/6Z
GA tickets for Turin are currently available here: http://u2.gs/6X
@U2start Somehow, I don’t think we’re going to mind spoilers. ;)
More rumours of U2 visiting Australia in December (& critique of dodgy Courier-Mail article): http://u2.gs/6W
Turin today: bad news (no rehearsals) and good news (stage lit up, U2.com realises tour about to resume): http://u2.gs/6V
I (Ax) am skeptical anything’s about to happen. It’s late in Melbourne; I’m off to bed. I’ll update in ~8 hours if something happens.
Tuesday afternoon Turin update - stage still not complete: http://u2.gs/6U
@skid63 I follow enough bands that being spoiled for U2 doesn’t bother me too much. Plus I know I couldn’t avoid spoilers if I tried!
You know, that mid-tour rehearsals article was originally meant to be just a paragraph in today’s Turin update…! I got carried away.
The rarity of extended mid-tour rehearsals (how unusual is the length of time U2 may rehearse in Turin): http://u2.gs/6R
@skid63 I know how you feel! Though I must admit, after years of running U2gigs, I slightly miss going to see U2 with a bit of mystery.
U2gigs is spoiler central for the tour. But surely that’s why you follow us. ;) Spoiler avoiders, hope to see you after your gig!
@Peaches66 Agreed. But knowing U2’s history, I’m not getting too optimistic yet.
@diederdevries Unfortunately for you, absolutely. See you in a couple of weeks. :)
Monday’s Turin update (rehearsals possibly begin tomorrow): http://u2.gs/6Q
Still Turin tickets available on TicketOne: http://u2.gs/6P
2011 tour and album rumours (and Sunday’s modest Turin update): http://u2.gs/6N
Hey, @LikeASong_90, thanks for the tip-off re: U2 possibly recording in Santorini!
Turin update for Saturday: http://u2.gs/6M
Today’s Turin news (inc. more tickets available for Turin gig): http://u2.gs/6L
@Matkin22 Damn straight they should. Honestly, any love for the 2nd half of JT is good in my view (Ax). Sick of hearing only 1st 5 JT songs.
@AndyFC91 The old support acts weren’t meant to appear in the new listings. Now old supports are noted in comments. Thanks for noticing!
Today’s update from Turin - first photos: http://u2.gs/6K
U2 about to hit the road again: http://u2.gs/6J
I wonder if already something happens around the stadium in Turin? I would expect them to setup the stage by now for rehearsals.
Helsinki 2 GA tickets available: http://u2.gs/6H
@kevinrobers Looks like I can’t make all of them. Hard enough to get all those other tiny holidays approved :)
@u2wanderer See you there :)
@kevinrobers I don’t want to know ;) There are some spares in there as well.
24 days to go for me (Matt) … http://u2.gs/6G
Rescheduled North American U2 dates for 2011: http://u2.gs/6D
More rumours of U2 in Australia in Dec. Today Show & now News.com.au, but latter hints early 2011 is also an option. My money’s on ’11.
