RT @candai: I didn’t think this sound check could get any better, but The Fly just finished and free Baskin Robbins is making the rounds.
Less than a week until #U2Glasto! Today’s question of the day is obvious: what do you see them playing? Hits, rarities, anything at all!
I actually heard that snippet and the connection didn’t click; thought Bono was just messing with the lyrics.
Sorry for the sudden disappearance - nothing new happened. 23rd HMTMKMKM, 24th WOWY, 25th MOS. #U2360ANA
@skid63 I don’t think it was Hear Us Coming … not sure though!
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow snippet leads into 22nd song, Streets. #U2360ANA
May’ve been a snippet there near the end of One… #U2360ANA
21st song of the night, first of the encore, is One. #U2360ANA
Over to the video message from Aung San Suu Kyi … #U2360ANA
Walk On and the main set closes out with a snippet of You’ll Never Walk Alone. #U2360ANA
Which, of course, leads into Walk On, 20th song of the night. #U2360ANA
19th is Scarlet. #U2360ANA
Then Psycho Killer snippet to close Crazy Tonight. 18th is Sunday Bloody Sunday. #U2360ANA
Then a snippet of Life During Wartime. #U2360ANA
Here’s the Discothèque snippet! #U2360ANA
Yep, was some Kravitz at the end of Vertigo. Are You Gonna Go My Way. #U2360ANA
17th is Crazy Tonight. #U2360ANA
Hard to pick the snip at the end of Vertigo … wasn’t some Kravitz was it? #U2360ANA
16th is Vertigo. #U2360ANA
@Lunnzies Heh, nor did I.
15th is City Of Blinding Lights. #U2360ANA
@Lunnzies I actually think SBS this tour sounds better than it has on some recent tours … wouldn’t miss it if they dropped it though.
14th is Zooropa, aww yeah. #U2360ANA
@Lunnzies That’d be perfect. I’d like Like A Song over SBS though! Bit too much to ask.
@ljmohler Yeah, as well-intentioned as it may be, I’m not a fan; it’s just a bit awkward.
@Lunnzies I suppose they feel they “have” to play it this leg since they didn’t in the US in 2009. I’d rather UF!
@atu2 That was 11th. ;) 13th is Miss S.
13th is Miss Sarajevo. #U2360ANA
@Lunnzies I can’t believe it spent so long out of the set in 2009-10. Good times. I’d rather hear it than, say, Elevation though.
12th is Pride. #U2360ANA
BD ends with a snippet of Space Oddity, starting to become a regular ending now. #U2360ANA
11th is Beautiful Day with long intro and rambling Bono dedication. #U2360ANA
@skid63 Haha cool. I reckon the version of 11OTT on the UABRS video is MUCH better than on the album.
@Lunnzies I reckon it’s because Bono doesn’t like having to play guitar, it restricts him running around on stage.
So that means All I Want Is You is ninth. #U2360ANA
@skid63 Haha. The US isn’t too bad. It’s mid-afternoon here. That said, it’s turned into a nice day outside and here I am online…
@ZooPony Once it’s been up for a couple of minutes, I figure it’s too late, it’s out there.
@skid63 I’m dreading how early I’ll have to be up for Glasto next week! Might make Matkin cover it.
@skid63 Yeah, though I think it happened while I was asleep! UK and Aussie timezones do not match.
@ces_u2 None yet.
@wxander I just want some NLOTH (the song) …
But anyway, 7th is UTEOTW. #U2360ANA
I’m in marking-essays mode at the moment and the awkward syntax of my previous update is now causing me actual pain.
@skid63 God I hope there’s a stream!
@skid63 I wonder if you’ll score any post-Glasto new additions to the set…
Clocking in at sixth is Elevation. #U2360ANA
@skid63 Awesome! Personally, I can’t believe Glasto’s so soon. Looking forward to what the set may be for that.
Imagine tonight’s gig will be the usual; hopefully some surprises tomorrow. #U2360ANA
5th is MW. #U2360ANA
Fourth is Magnificent. #U2360ANA
@wxander Yeah, I’m on that, hoping it may decide to be stable sometime …
And Boots is third. #U2360ANA
I Will Follow comes in at 2nd as usual. #U2360ANA
I haven’t seen a working stream yet, alas … #U2360ANA
We are go in Anaheim. First is EBTTRT. This is Ax, covering today’s show. #U2360ANA
RT @guitar4worship: Lenny sounds good. The kick drum is attacking my adams apple.
@AntonVonDraco I’m not at tonight’s concert; it’s Montreal 1 and Toronto that I will be at
@JoseMacPhisto My guess would be in place of Mysterious Ways or HMTMKMKM; if it shows up at all. Could be for Glasto only
@iambradk Haven’t heard of any yet, but we’ll pass it on if we do :)
And now it’s Even Better Than the Real Thing. not long till the gates open, so this might be it for the soundcheck #U2360ANA
The Fly again #U2360ANA
Make that three renditions now; “Baby, baby, baby, light my way…” #U2360ANA
Ultraviolet again; thanks once more to @trojanchick99!
Ultraviolet is up next; nice that they haven’t forgotten it! #U2360ANA
Soundchecking MAgnificent a third time; Bono’s back it seems.
Magnificent is now being rehearsed (thanks @trojanchick99)
Actual band soundcheck now; they get underway with The Fly #U2360ANA
So to recap: assuming all reports correct, crew checked Electric Co, IYWTVD, UTEOTW, AIWIY, COBL, Zooropa, EBTTRT, The Fly, Bad #U2360ANA
Reports that the crew have gone onto Bad. And it seems that U2 may have just arrived. #U2360ANA
And it looks as if @GordonRamsay01 will be in attendance tonight! Careful U2; don’t make him call you donkeys! ;-)
@steputrip Slight chance for tonight; been a long gap, and they play again tomorrow. I think tomorrow’s show will have the major changes.
