@u2wanderer Bono’s afraid I’d make him snippet 50 obscure Kiwi bands in Bad.
Looking forward to seeing what the band do for Coimbra 2. For now, this is Ax, signing off. See you folks tomorrow!
@ZooPony Hahah, good call!
Sorry, we won’t have videos today (or tomorrow), since Matt isn’t in Coimbra. But don’t despair: he will be in Rome! :)
Full live set and info for Coimbra 1 here: http://u2.gs/gs
Thanks very much to @U2tour for the live feed today!
That’s the end of the gig today, folks.
@ZooPony I wish Bono would at least try to sing it properly rather than speaking the verses.
@Drea104 I have to get in at least one per show. ;)
A time traveller from 1983 would be so confused by how little this sounds like a moment of Surrender.
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender.
@ZooPony No kidding. Remember how great it sounded in 1987-89? I miss that.
@ClaytonsKitten Here’s hoping the surprise of HMTM two nights in a row happens in Melbourne. ;)
23rd is With Or Without You.
@ClaytonsKitten I’d say UV is pretty much guaranteed tomorrow now!
22nd is… Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me!
2nd encore break… HMTM or UV? My bet’s on HMTM, since UV was done at the last gig.
@AnaVitti I think you’ve found a solution! And bribe Edge with a brand new beanie…
Amazing Grace snip leads into 21st song, Streets.
@AnaVitti I hate to think how huge that bribe would have to be…!
20th song, first of encore, is One.
Here’s Desmond Tutu’s speech…
There’s the You’ll Never Walk Alone snip, right on cue.
@AnaVitti If they ever play Wild Irish Rose or bring back Zooropa or Dirty Day… that’d be perfect. Perfect.
@AnaVitti Yes! But only fans who own October, to get rid of the people who own just a Best Of and request hits we’ve heard heaps before. ;)
18th is MLK; 19th is Walk On.
@AnaVitti As for early songs, like all your suggestions, would add Electric Co, The Fool, Brick, and Another Time Another Place.
@AnaVitti How about a 2nd gig, of 1984-89 songs? I want to hear One Tree Hill/Exit/Mothers close a set. It’d rule.
When I turned on my radio the other night, I heard Gloria on a hyper-commercial station. As if it was an obscurity in the ’05 sets.
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Here I was, thinking all our tweets appeared on Bono’s teleprompter…!
Two Tribes snippet. What, Bono didn’t read my last tweet? Shocked, I tell you, shocked! ;)
Hey Bono, Discotheque > Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Just so you know, for your snippetry reference.
@ClaytonsKitten I can’t believe how quickly that disappeared. Given up on it returning… :(
@AnaVitti Me too! 1978-1984 U2 is my favourite (along with Lovetown U2). Would love to hear 11OTT, Rejoice, Twilight, songs like that.
Relax snip before 1st verse of Crazy.
16th is Crazy Tonight. Still waiting for Bono to snippet the Chicken Tonight ad jingle in this.
Vertigo has a snippet of Teenage Kicks.
@AnaVitti Yes! To make up for neglecting them in recent setlists, U2 can’t play anything recorded after 1982.
15th is Vertigoo. That was a typo, but I like it so it’s staying.
Can we move U2’s Melbourne gigs to a tiny club? Nothing scheduled at the East Brunsy yet…
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
@ClaytonsKitten I can get behind that. Anything to get rid of IALW.
Just struck me how weird it is that I saw a tiny club gig in Melbourne last night, now setlisting a huge stadium gig on other side of world.
13th is Miss Sarajevo.
Glasto last done 21/08, EBW last done 11/09. NS/Mercy combo done at 5 out of 7 gigs since 12/09.
Interesting how North Star/Mercy has settled as the unreleased song duo. I, for one, miss Glasto.
12th is In A Little While.
Well, if I don’t spot a snip, you people are good at picking it. ISHFWILF’s snip was One Love by Bob Marley. Thanks, all!
@AnaVitti Oh woops! My excuse is that I’ve had four hours of sleep, heh.
11th is Mercy. Wonder which unreleased song will be first to have a snippet, heh.
Oh yeah, I was way too distracted by the Aussie Rules grand final yesterday and forgot to check the snip in Vertigo in Seville.
There was a snippet at the end of ISHFWILF but I have no idea what it was. Didn’t sound like a usual ISHFWILF snip.
Tenth is North Star.
@AnaVitti Hehe, it was meant to be “aw yeah bro, now Bono’s giving a speech”.
@U2log Soooo spuchufying. Very nearly announced this song as “I Stull Huvint Fund”.
As usual, the speech leads into I Still Haven’t Found.
@U2log Aw yih bru! Now Buno’s spuchufying, eh!
Bono, as usual, is speechifying at this point.
I keep accidentally typing “snuppet”… guess I’m just typing with my Kiwi accent?
UTEOTW has a snippet of Anthem.
Eighth is Until The End Of The World.
Seventh is Elevation.
Let It Be snippet at the end of MW.
Sixth is Mysterious Ways.
Fifth is Magnificent.
Fourth is Get On Your Boots.
Third is I Will Follow, back in the set after missing the Seville gig.
I’ll be posting the full set live in this article: http://u2.gs/gs
Crowd’s in good voice. Second is Beautiful Day.
U2 are go with Return Of The Stingray Guitar.
Space Oddity now playing in Coimbra.
Hi all, Ax here. Again, neither of us can be in Coimbra, but I’ll bring you coverage of the gig as usual. U2 should begin in about 30 mins.
@CoachRocks If they expected it to sell on the same level as HTDAAB, they’re out of touch with album sales levels nowadays.
@U2log Seconded! Lillywhite has no bloody idea. Never mind that NLOTH’s sales were damn good when you consider overall global album sales.
