@fgnbtz no problem ;-)
Videos will take some time today. I’m driving back home first.
That’s it for now from me, Ax. Look out for Matt’s content from the show soon. :)
@YouGrowWildS Haha, I know! We even put a verse of lyrics on the sign to coax Bono into snippeting it. Edge read the sign and laughed.
Hannover setlist, stats, etc.: http://u2.gs/9u
That’s the end. Thanks to @u2tour for the live stream and to Matt for all the extra details/media. Updating mainpage article now.
@YouGrowWildS Much better sign than our Womanfish sign! We made it hastily the night before as a gag.
MOS dedicated to Hannover & German soccer player Robert Enke, who committed suicide last year.
@YouGrowWildS Good luck! My sign at Dublin 3 was for Womanfish… are you shocked it wasn’t played? ;)
So that makes Moment Of Surrender 25th and presumably last song of the night.
Happy Birthday sung for Wim Wenders, whose birthday is tomorrow.
@YouGrowWildS I think my friends beside me went deaf when I screamed the lyrics at the top of my voice!
I probably don’t need to say it, but there was indeed no Shine Like Stars in WOWY tonight. :(
@YouGrowWildS I was there that night and lost my shit. 17th WOWY for me and it was the 1st time I got Shine Like Stars.
23rd is WOWY. My forlorn hope for Shine Like Stars continues.
22nd is… Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me! Loving this song’s resurrection.
Second encore break now… bring on HMTMKMKM again!
All you need is love snip in Streets. Matt
21st is Streets, with Amazing Grace intro.
One does not have the Hear Us Coming verse.
20th song of the night is One.
Desmond Tutu video on now, here comes 1st encore. If you want to catch up on full set, it’s here: http://u2.gs/9u
Walk On has snippet of You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Unfortunately for Street Mission fans, 19th is indeed Walk On.
18th is MLK. Who reckons Street Mission will be next? ;)
I (Ax) will ask Matt to confirm snippets when he can. Think one or two earlier in the set have been missed too.
I suspected the snip at the start of Crazy was Funky Town and that’s what a few of you say too. Added to set.
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Discotheque snippet in Crazy Tonight. Think there was something else snippeted at the start too but I don’t know what…
Love how Bono’s rolling the r of “wants me to rrrrrriot” like Bishop Tutu’s “grrrrreat” speech.
16th is Crazy Tonight.
U2log Girl on stage during COBL, B takes her for a walk and asks for her name
15th is Vertigo.
@AllU2 Miss Sarajevo was done after IALW as normal.
So apart from Elevation and ISHFWILF swapping places, the Hannover set has been the same as Frankfurt so far.
So thanks to Matt for setting us straight. :) 14th is COBL.
My (Ax’s) fault for not confirming there was no Miss S. Set is IALW 10th, Miss Sarajevo 11th, UTEOTW 12th, UF 13th.
12th is The Unforgettable Fire.
Miss Sarajevo before Until. Matt
11th is Until The End Of The World. So no Miss Sarajevo?
@Bauhaus45 That would take me a while to answer! But it would have songs like ASOH, OTH, Exit, 11OTT, Bad, Heartland, Treasure…
@llootsteen39 Possibly too hard on the voice, yeah… plus, I reckon Edge doing the intro sounds better anyway!
10th is In A Little While.
Personally, I really dig Glastonbury, my favourite of the new songs. Great, energetic performances.
@llootsteen39 Think it was Edge doing the intro.
9th is new song Glastonbury!
Aw yeah, Movin’ On Up snippet at the end of ISHFWILF.
@Matkin22 I can get behind both LNOE and Slug completely! We can dream, I suppose…
Some of that speech was, uh, odd. Bono put on an alien voice.
What does a long speech mean? It means 8th song is ISHFWILF, of course!
Bono’s given a speech, introducing band…
Elevation had short slow intro, Bono leading crowd in “ooh ooh elevation” chant before song kicked in. Not fullblown slow start from 2005.
@Matkin22 Yeah, I reckon UTEOTW/HMTM/Vertigo would sound amazing, but it would require major change.
Aaaand here’s a set change! 7th is Elevation.
My Sweet Lord snippet in MW.
Setlist so far same as Frankfurt. Wonder if Glasto will stay in set, & whether North Star will get its German debut.
@Matkin22 I think if MW moved to sit between HMTMKMKM and WOWY, it could at least give a semblance of cohesion to the encore.
6th is Mysterious Ways.
@Matkin22 I’d blame the sluggish performances of WOWY for ruining the encore mood, not HMTMKMKM!
@Matkin22 It’s an… odd song choice for them to resurrect, though! From Achtung, all I ask is LIB.
Fifth is Magnificent.
@L_Fernando_MM Same; I’m pleased it has returned to the setlist this year!
Fourth is Get On Your Boots.
@Matkin22 Purely because it’s a 2nd show, i.e. I wonder if it might be part of a little setlist shake-up from the 1st night.
Third is New Year’s Day. There was no snippet at the end of BDay.
Second song is Beautiful Day.
@llootsteen39 Indeed he is!
First song remains the new song Return Of The Stingray Guitar!
Here we go, Space Oddity playing in Hannover!
@Matkin22 My feeling is that if TTTYAATW is done, it will debut at Horsens II. We’ll see…!
Ax checking in today - today’s setlist will be updated live to this mainpage article: http://u2.gs/9u
@YB85 If we can fob it off as “director’s commentary”. ;)
@ZenDocSteve I (Ax) will try to talk Matt into it! ;)
Horsens prepares for U2 to hit Denmark: http://u2.gs/DK
