Anyway, this is Ax, signing off for now. Can’t believe we’ve just one European gig to go. See you on Friday for the Rome show!
Unfortunately we have no video from Coimbra 2 since Matt couldn’t attend. He’ll be in Rome; let’s hope U2 do Boy Falls From The Sky again!
Full setlist and info for Coimbra 2 here: http://u2.gs/gt
Wow, so Bono does all three of his usual rain snippets without repeating ANY of them!
Baaahahaha, there’s the Singing In The Rain snippet after MOS! Just snippeting, snippeting in the rain…
And here’s Moment Of Surrender, 24th and presumably last song of the night.
Bono’s now speechifying, thanking the crowd for an “unforgettable night”.
@SeattleB Was hoping Bad would appear, especially given that they want to do something special for Coimbra, but lost hope now.
23rd is With Or Without You.
Yep, 22nd is indeed Ultra Violet.
2nd encore break. Now the guessing game, HMTM or UV? Presumably UV, since HMTM was done last night.
Amazing Grace snip leads into 21st song, Streets.
One doesn’t have Hear Us Coming tonight.
@alljokesmustgo Haha, so they did! That hadn’t occurred to me.
Of course, I’d have no problem if Bono followed Aussie Rules and snippeted See The Bombers Fly Up. We can pretend Essendon won the flag?
20th song, first of encore, is One.
Over to Bishop Tutu now.
Snip of You’ll Never Walk Alone. Thank god Bono doesn’t follow Aussie Rules and we haven’t copped Good Old Collingwood Forever!
19th is Walk On.
Vain hope indeed. 18th is MLK as usual.
It’s a vain hope, but I’m hoping all the same that MOTD will return to the 18th slot in the setlist…
17th is Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Relax snippet again at the end of Crazy. No Two Tribes tonight.
Good, I wasn’t hearing things. Relax snip at the start of Crazy. Thanks @U2log!
@Galeongirl Damn, those supposed cheap airfares aren’t cheap enough!
Did he sneak a line of Relax into Crazy’s intro or was I hearing things?
16th is Crazy Tonight.
She Loves You snippet at the end of Vertigo.
@Galeongirl *checks wallet* … reckon $25.20 is enough?
15th is Vertigo.
@ZooPony Here’s hoping! This is, I think, only the 3rd song on tour he hasn’t heard, after YBR and She’s The One.
@atu2comSherry Camera tech improvements mean next year you may be able to set a new higher standard! Next tour could be amazing…
14th is City Of Blinding Lights.
@U2log Blasted tall people, eh? Maybe I should coax one of my tall friends into doing some recording in Melbourne…
13th is Miss Sarajevo.
@atu2comSherry I just hope they have Matt’s good camera and stable hands! ;) (I know I don’t!)
Back down to earth now, folks. 12th is just In A Little While.
Well, I reckon this sounds pretty sweet. Wish Matt was in Coimbra to record this. :(
@alljokesmustgo I can’t believe you’re right and that they’re actually doing something TOTALLY new! Wow, nice.
This is that Spiderman musical song.
So eleventh is LIVE DEBUT of BOY FALLS FROM THE SKY.
Woah, in honour of the welcome Coimbra has given U2, they’re playing a song they’ve never done before!
Now crowd’s chanting Pride’s “oh oh oh oh” bit.
Pride has only been done in this setlist spot before in Moscow, Athens, & Istanbul. Guess they aren’t doing the SBS/Pride swap for night 2.
Oh hello, tenth is Pride!
@U2log I Still Haven’t Found The Best Night I’m Looking For.
@Galeongirl Don’t really think it was a snip, wasn’t the melody of Singing In The Rain, nor is “won’t you come back again?” a lyric in it.
Shorter speech than last night. Ninth is I Still Haven’t Found.
It’s Bono speech time now…
@SeattleB It’s been far too long since he’s snippeted that!
Woah, Bono doesn’t bring UTEOTW to a halt before the “drowning my sorrows” verse. Thank god.
@SeattleB Bad, AOH or Desire, UV, Pride in SBS’s spot. And Cartoon World instead of Walk On. ;)
Eighth is Until The End Of The World.
Goddamnit, I was briefly not paying attention - was that another rain-themed snip in Elevation, or just improv lyrics?
Seventh is Elevation.
Can’t Stand The Rain snippet in MW.
Sixth is Mysterious Ways.
Fifth song is Magnificent. No “where are we going?” tonight.
@U2log Haha, if it were, I can’t wait for the next song, Magnifitastic.
Bono’s changing up the lyrics to Boots’ verses tonight…
Live feed drops out, returns, just in time for fourth, Get On Your Boots.
@SeattleB Hehe, or how about NYD / October (snippet)? At this stage, it’d be better than nothing…
@wxander Even spottier than yesterday! Sounds like the communication network is really overloaded…
Third is New Year’s Day, back after a night off yesterday.
Snippet of The Beatles’ Rain at the end of BDay. There we go, the Snippeting In The Rain begins!
@SeattleB “NYD into October”, you say? Now that’d be funny. ;)
Here is our mainpage article where I will be posting the full set live: http://u2.gs/gt
Second song is Beautiful Day. Crowd is again in very good voice.
Opener is, naturally, Stingray Guitar.
Space Oddity now playing in Coimbra… almost showtime!
@xalira Hah, awesome! I’ve been to all 6 of their Australian shows; best gig I’ve ever seen was their Melbourne gig earlier this year.
@SeattleB You may want to reconsider that opinion; have you heard October into Tomorrow from the War Tour, 1st leg?
@SeattleB I’m sure there’s some truth if there’s money behind it. ;) God I’d love a song from October, even just the title track before NYD.
It was raining in Coimbra earlier… wonder if we’ll get some Snippeting In The Rain and other torrential classics tonight!
U2 should begin in about 35-40 minutes. Soundcheck was Pride, Desire, Bad, but may have been just by the crew, not U2.
Hi folks, Ax here for Coimbra 2. Like yesterday, neither of us are there, but let’s not let that stop us from doing gig coverage!
@xalira Top 5 bands? Hmm… Porcupine Tree, Crowded House, Agalloch, Pure Reason Revolution, The Chills.
