Still waiting for confirmation re: whether #U2360MIA got a Miami snippet or not…
Snips via @thephonebox: Blondie’s Atomic in MWays, Melbourne 2010-12-03; The Champs’ Tequila in Boots, Mexico City 2011-05-11.
@Galeongirl Bono and Edge NS, not full band.
This is Ax, signing off. See you folks in a few days for U2’s first gig in Nashville since the October Tour in 1981! #U2360MIA
23rd is With Or Without You. 24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender. #U2360MIA
First song of the second encore, 22nd song of the night, is Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me. #U2360MIA
@llootsteen39 Apparently they thought it was incomplete, esp. lyrically, which is why it was dropped last year and not rehearsed this year.
Snip of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? leads into 21st song, Streets. #U2360MIA
First song of the encore, 20th of the night, is One. #U2360MIA
@Colpophage Won’t be shocked if it was the end-of-Vertigo snippet.
18th is Scarlet, leading into 19th, Walk On. #U2360MIA
@llootsteen39 A bit disappointed, but was kind of expecting them to not do it. Wonder if it would’ve gone down better with crowd than Boots!
Guess we’ll be waiting for YouTube/bootlegs to pick up the snippets for this gig. #U2360MIA
No news on snippets unfortunately. 17th song of the night is Sunday Bloody Sunday. #U2360MIA
16th is Crazy Tonight. #U2360MIA
Vertigo is 15th. #U2360MIA
@swmrnbk I think it’ll stay in the set to the end of the tour now. Not sure who’ll be covering that gig yet!
@ritababy Glorious winter day here, sunny and crisp! Kind of wish I was outside really.
14th is City Of Blinding Lights. #U2360MIA
@ZooPony Bono introduced it as such, according to a tweet from the venue.
@ritababy Ax today!
13th is Zooropa. #U2360MIA
12th is Miss Sarajevo. #U2360MIA
Damn, that stream was shortlived! #U2360MIA
11th is Pride. #U2360MIA
By the way, looks like North Star was probably just the Bono and Edge version. #U2360MIA
@funk_chsxc12 It’s not on the soundtrack, just in the movie.
Tenth is Elevation. #U2360MIA
Looks like North Star replaced Stay - Beautiful Day is up next in ninth. #U2360MIA
@Matt_Cermak I think the band view the current set as enough of a change from 2009. EBTTRT, The Fly, HMTMKMKM, Zooropa, etc.
And yes, North Star is being played because of Transformers. No word yet re: whether full band or still just Bono & Edge. #U2360MIA
This is the first North Star since 10 April in Sao Paulo, and the first in North America. #U2360MIA
North Star!! #U2360MIA
Seventh is Still Haven’t Found, following speechifying. #U2360MIA
Reckon we aren’t going to see much setlist variety for the rest of the tour. Wonder if AIWIY will at least return & replace ISHF. #U2360MIA
@aguilarwalle Those stats were including the 1993 (Zooropa) legs.
Until The End Of The World rocks up in fourth. #U2360MIA
@luis_lembrino Data networks are so bad there are almost no text updates. I think we can forget a stream tonight!
And third is Mysterious Ways. #U2360MIA
The Fly has clocked in at second. #U2360MIA
@halloweenbeat At this stage, I’m wondering if we’ll even have a consistent text source, let alone a stream!
War Tour is just one show shy of 360 too, and it ran less than a year! #U2360MIA
Time length of tour ≠ most shows. 360 may be longest tour by time, but Boy, UF, ZooTV, Elev, and Vertigo all had more shows. #U2360MIA
We’re go in Miami with Even Better Than The Real Thing. #U2360MIA
@FernandoDante Boy, UF, ZooTV, Elevation, and Vertigo all had more shows than 360.
@halloweenbeat Not by the band.
Space Oddity reportedly playing in Miami. Sources seem VERY few and far between. #U2360MIA
Prev longest tour was ZooTV. From 1st show to last, it ran 1 year, 9 months, 10 days. 360 will be 2 years, 1 month when finished. #U2360MIA
Incidentally, this means that 360 is the first U2 tour to break the two year barrier. #U2360MIA
(I should point out that the show listed for 29/06 in Barcelona was the dress rehearsal. 30/06 was the official 1st night.) #U2360MIA
@Achtung_Fahey Ooh yeah, I’d been meaning to mention it’s the 2 year anniversary.
I think things should be go within the next 5-10 minutes? Not sure if we have much/anything by way of sources & feeds though! #U2360MIA
@RnbwDashIsWin Though I’d still rather hear most other songs from Pop first, heh.
@RnbwDashIsWin Much as I dislike the studio version of Miami, I wouldn’t mind hearing it live again. It was good on stage.
Also, that hashtag, #U2360MIA? I just read it as “U2 360 Missing In Action”. Can you tell I was once a young boy who read action/war novels?
So, U2 in Miami today. Will the song Miami sneak into the setlist and be the first full Pop song on 360? Somehow I think not! #U2360MIA
@atu2comSherry SBS has been played 102 times on a Sunday :)
@tegod No, it was the usual length, though it did start about 10 minutes earlier than normal.
Looks like that’s it tonight. Show rounded out with a snippet of Jungleland at the end of MOS. #U2360EL
@Gravy1199 I was kind of surprised they didn’t even rehearse it, but apparently the band just weren’t happy with it, felt it was incomplete.
Or will U2 sneak in Out Of Control again? ;) A guy can dream. #U2360EL
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender. #U2360EL
Sorry for the delay! With or Without You follows #U2360EL
Such a good rocker, popular with crowds, tears down stadiums. Hope it lingers for the next tour! #U2360EL
This Axver is VERY glad to see HMTMKMKM back in the set. I still don’t understand how it hasn’t been a regular on the 2 prev tours. #U2360EL
@Chanel4NewsTeam Not totally sure, but it looks like it was dropped in favour of The Fly
One opens the encore #U2360EL
@smili72 I wish I knew
@wildbilldj Interpol in Montreal and Toronto; Arcade Fire and Carney in Moncton.
Walk On; probably the end of the main set as is the norm. #U2360EL
“Rejooooiiicee!” It’s Scarlet! I relly do love the melding of bass and piano on this song… #U2360EL
OK, if there is one thing I (Ax) don’t know, it’s how often SBS has been done on a Sunday! #U2360EL
I’m also starting to wonder if, in Bono’s head, Psycho Killer and Life During Wartime have been conflated into one song. #U2360EL
I (Ax) really DO need to send Matkin back to Snippetry School don’t I! #U2360EL
Apparently Ax has a much better ear than I do! #U2360EL
There’s another snip at the end of Crazy Tonight that I don’t recognize. As usual, Sunday Bloody Sunday is next (anyone surprised?) #U2360EL
There are the Talking Heads snips - Life During Wartime and Psycho Killer. #U2360EL
(Matkin was never very good at studying; he never learned how)!
Discotheque snippet remains #U2360EL
And I (Ax) promise to send Matkin to study the setlist database a bit more! Pride used to be done after SBS. #U2360EL
@atu2comSherry Haha, I’ve managed to dodge that particular form of worship!
Oh wait, were there a few Prides between Crazy and SBS earlier on? Or was that after SBS? I can’t really remember now. #U2360EL
Crazy remix follows as usual. COBL through SBS hasn’t changed all tour.
I’m still alive, Matkin, though surprised at the lack of snippetry in Vertigo! #U2360EL
Has anybody seen Ax? I last saw him in the butchers, salivating over the sausages on display. #U2360EL
City of Blinding Lights follows as usual. Still waiting on the two changeups that Dallas promised to @EdgeFest!
“I hear voices, ridiculous voices”. I LOVE that line! #U2360EL
Zooropa, the revival nobody expected (along with Scarlet) follows as usual. Glad to see it back after the Glastonbury absence #U2360EL
@wxander No, it hasn’t. The Fly came in at Magnificent’s expense
And Bono ABSOLUTELY NAILS it tonight! #U2360EL
Yeah, like Two Hearts Beat as One, Gone, and Dirty Day ;-)
But alas, Elevation always gets stadium crowds going while Gone or God Part II would probably not go down half as enthusiastically. #U2360EL
Next up is the opera song. Sometimes called Miss Sarajevo #U2360EL
I (Ax) am not saying I haven’t enjoyed Elevation live, but I think they have a whole bunch of rockers with even more substance. #U2360EL
Oh yeah, and Pride is next. No more skipped gigs for it methinks. #U2360EL
I endorse it because my girlfriend likes it so much; and while the lyrics are bad, you cannot deny it is an awesome rocker!
I (Ax) do not endorse Elevation in the way Matkin just did. ;) #U2360EL
A mole! Digging in a hole! Digging up my soul now, going down, excavation! I and I in the sky, you make me feel like I can fly! So high!
And Space Oddity returned as the snip at the end of BDay, after Rain cropped up instead at Glasto. #U2360EL
What’s next? Elevation! #U2360EL
Oh good, the video is back! Nice job by the techs! On goes the show! #U2360EL
Why is it so bright in Michigan? I’m in the same timezone (Kitchener) and it’s much darker outside.#U2360EL
It comes back to a live shot of the band, but the Mark Kelly video was nowhere. Is it a problem with that one clip, or a bigger issue?
Oh dear, the video screen has broken down. Can they get it back? #U2360EL
Following a lovely version of Stay, we head into…Beautiful Day from the ISS. #U2360EL
@wxander Given the way this guy just keeps talking you into yet another glass, much worse than any other Irishman I’ve drank with!
@spenceeastwood The remix has quite distinctly different lyrics. It’s when Bono sings the “slave to …” lines at the end.
@coldplayer4life No idea. Probably not as they had to hurry back to North America to prepare for tonight’s concert.
@wxander Haha oooh yeah. I never learn my lesson about going and drinking with Croatian exchange students.
Stay (Faraway, So Close!) is next, complete with the Sinatra introduction. #U2360EL
Promised Land snip at the end of ISHFWILF there. #U2360EL
I really do prefer All I Want Is You in this slot… #U2360EL
I’ve done live sets drunk before, but think this is the first AFTER a big night. All I can think of is bacon & sausages. #U2360EL
If I (Ax) seem quiet tonight, it’s because I had a very big night last night. Today’s best largely left to Matkin! #U2360EL
Feed is back. Crowd sings ISHFWILF #U2360EL
Talk about a fast start! Next up is the Bono speech, leading into a stream outage #U2360EL
RT @atu2comSherry: For a band in their 50s (well, most of ‘em), they are rocking as if they’re 18 again. Flippin’ fast paced set tonight!
Soooo…. how did everyone like Glastonbury, and how did U2 compare to Coldplay and Beyonce?
What follows? Boots slots in at number six. #U2360EL
@atu2 I’m about 75% sure it was Where Have Flowers etc., but I’m not confident enough to add it to the set yet.
It’s… I Will Follow! #U2360EL
Now, what will be fifth? One or something else? #U2360EL
Was there an Anthem snippet in there? I tuned out a bit, thinking of the Achtung opening. #U2360EL
Hard to tell, but I (Ax) think that was the Where Have All The Flowers Gone snippet in UTEOTW. #U2360EL
U2 started their set about 10 minutes earlier than usual tonight. I wonder if that’s to make way for anything that may lengthen it..?
And the fourth song of the night is Until the End of the World. Achtung y’all! #U2360EL
RT @honey_child: I’m so wearing these devil horns in Montreal for U2. The hardcore u2 fans will get the reference.
Third up is Mysterious Ways. I guess they really like that Glasto set now. 11 more days until I see it myself. #U2360EL
Second song of the night is The Fly! #U2360EL
Well what do you know, we’ve already started tonight! EBTTRT opens I hear #U2360EL
Speaking of 40, this has to be one of my favourite versions of it ever: http://www.youtube.com/w…
Wow, lots of love for 40 being the last song they ever play!
@halloweenbeat Nope, last of their career
Hey everyone, it’s time for the QOTD! U2 have chosen you to create a three song encore for their final concert; what 3 are their last?
@u2radiocom Hello to you too!
