Can anyone confirm? RT @rodrigosalem U2’s “Mercy”, the new studio take, is on Transformers soundtrack! The song plays twice in the movie.
The Fly clip was obviously from the 2nd Anaheim show. http://u2.gs/kh Sorry.
This is Ax signing off, thrilled with how genuinely exciting the varied set was, and that The Fly finally is in 360, 2 years late! #U2360ANA
A number of folks confirm the snippet at the end of MOS was Jungleland (Springsteen of course). #U2360ANA
What was Bono reciting just then at the end of MOS? #U2360ANA
And this time Matkin won’t repeat what Ax says ;-)
MOS is 24th and presumably last. #U2360ANA
@StrongGirl The one on u2radio.com
Ah there we go, Bono acknowledges Clarence Clemons’ passing. #U2360ANA
(Or so I heard). Couldn’t make out the other thank you’s apart from the Red Zone. #U2360ANA
Stream is back! Bono thanks American Idol #U2360ANA
Ooh stream’s back! #U2360ANA
So, MOS to close? Or a final shake-up with some Bad/40 action? I’d much prefer the latter, and maybe Glasto will be lucky… #U2360ANA
@u2kat Probably, since we can’t hear it!
With or Without You is 23rd song of the night
Seems like the cell finally ran out of juice. Bloody awesome while it lasted though. The Fly, and a hell of a setlist shakeup! #U2360ANA
Was there another feed out there? I recall something about a video feed earlier? #U2360ANA
Uhoh, there goes the feed … #U2360ANA
This could very well be the last or penultimate time we hear Ultraviolet this tour. Enjoy it while you ca! #U2360ANA
So that’s 6 songs from Achtung in this set, the most from any album other than NLOTH at a 360 Tour show. #U2360ANA
Coming in at 22nd to open the encore is… Ultra Violet, for the first time since 14 May. #U2360ANA
So, no Aung San Suu Kyi video by the sounds of it. Looks like we’re straight into 2nd encore. #U2360ANA
You’ll Never Walk Alone snip at the end of Walk On, of course. #U2360ANA
Clocking in at 21st is Walk On, and presumably this will be the end of the main set. #U2360ANA
20th is Scarlet. #U2360ANA
@Reina_de_Marte Any reference to another song counts, long or short.
Sunday Bloody Sunday is next. #U2360ANA
19th is Sunday Bloody Sunday. #U2360ANA
Discothèque snippet was followed by the return of the Please snippet in place of usual Talking Heads snips. #U2360ANA
Lengthy Discotheque snippet in Crazy as usual. And my stream died during it. Boo. #U2360ANA
I’m so glad now that Sunday is the one day of the week that I don’t work; if I’d slept through this set I would not be happy! #U2360ANA
And a snippet of Miss You before Crazy Tonight kicked off (thanks @ZooPony)
I Know it’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll snippeted in Vertigo at the end. Now on to Crazy Tonight #U2360ANA
Vertigo has a snip of It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll. #U2360ANA
@u2_news Now watch me be completely and totally wrong about all of it :P
Vertigo is after City as it has been every night of the tour thus far; will the trend continue at Glastonbury? #U2360ANA
If from there they do Vertigo, Crazy, SBS, Scarlet, Walk On, enc UV, WOWY, MOS, that will get us to 24 songs, the usual amount. #U2360ANA
Matkin’s official predictions for the rest of the night: Ultraviolet in place of HMTM, Discotheque after/in place of Crazy, Mag before MOS
And as usual (how awesome that we can now say that!) Zooropa is followed by City of Blinding Lights #U2360ANA
I (Ax) wonder if they’ll do Crazy Tonight, since I doubt it’ll be done at Glasto due to lack of 360 staging. #U2360ANA
So yeah, business as usual it seems. Though I wonder if Magnificent will make a surprise appearance later on. #U2360ANA
Good news is that Zooropa is still here; let’s hope it is played at Glastonbury! #U2360ANA
I (Matkin) second that wish for a Passengers segment #U2360ANA
@llootsteen39 I felt like 2005-06 was its time, not now. Would much rather YBR. But the crowd response … sigh.
I am very curious about the encores tonight; will there still be two, or just one? If two, what will be put in there? #U2360ANA
I (Ax) vote for a Passengers segment. Let’s have some Your Blue Room, Slug, Beach Sequence, and One Minute Warning action! #U2360ANA
Miss Sarajevo follows #U2360ANA
Is this leading into The Unforgettable Fire part of the set? Or is it just Pride? Either way looks like it’s no longer rotational on night 2
Pride is the 13th song of the night; Ax was only off by one song! #U2360ANA
Hello, my name is NLOTH and I’m wondering if my four fathers still love me. #U2360ANA
Set so far (grab a paper bag if you’re just tuning in): EBTTRT-The Fly-MW-UTEOTW-One-Streets-IWF-Boots-ISHFWILF-Stuck-BD-Elevation #U2360ANA
I (Ax) totally had Pride ready to go on the main page. Like Matkin, I had forgotten Elevation was missing. #U2360ANA
Next up is Elevation. I’d forgotten that one was missing too. #U2360ANA
Thanks everyone who answered (re: Mark Kelley verse). Bono snippets Space Oddity at the end of Beautiful Day #U2360ANA
Space Oddity snippet at the end of BDay. #U2360ANA
This is my first show in quite a while; I know Mark Kelley does the intro vid, but does he also normally sing that verse? #U2360ANA
And going back a few tweets… I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s not a fan of the Beatles!
RT @KeithRusso: Free U2 tickets at Box Office right nowwww if you are around Anaheim this second… For Realzzz… Tell a Friend…
Eleventh song of the night is Beautiful Day I think. And for those curious, Magnificent is missing; did it drop for The Fly? #U2360ANA
Haha, very droll, Matkin. Stuck = not quite the surprise I was looking for. But this is its 1st appearance since 11 May. #U2360ANA
MT @comay: Okay, now I’ve seen everything at a U2 show; man next to me got down on one knee & proposed to his girlfriend. Yes, she accepted.
@_Dream_Out_Loud So did I (Ax). Ugh.
Bono mentions Michael Hutchence… And the next song is Stuck. Ax is thrilled. #U2360ANA
I was kind of hoping ISHFWILF would come complete with the Movin’ On Up snip from earlier in the tour… #U2360ANA
Recap of the set so far: EBTTRT-The Fly-MW-UTEOTW-One-Streets-I Will Follow-Boots-ISHFWILF. What do you think of Boots-ISHF? #U2360ANA
Funnily enough, this is ISHFWILF’s first performance in over a month. #U2360ANA
And the next song (I’ve lost track of the number in my excitement) is… Still Haven’t Found #U2360ANA
Oh, looks like Ax has the snip covered ;)
Snip of a Beatles song (don’t know what it’s called because I’m the only person who doesn’t like them) and now some Bono speech #U2360ANA
She Loves You snip at the end of Boots. #U2360ANA
(Though I’ll be more than happy to be wrong; hey U2, keep stunning us all, okay?) #U2360ANA
Eighth is Boots Business as usual I think from now on. #U2360ANA
And I’ve gotten so many tweets that I haven’t even tried to keep up! Sorry everyone, caught up in the collective online fangasm! #U2360ANA
I WILL FOLLOW YESSSSSSS. (Signed, Ax.) #U2360ANA
Seventh is I Will Follow #U2360ANA
And there’s the All You Need Is Love snip in Streets, by the way. #U2360ANA
After that opening six songs what could possibly be seventh? #U2360ANA
On ZooTV, Popmart, Elevation, Vertigo, and all previous 360 shows, it has either been at/near the main set end, or in encore. #U2360ANA
OK, so, the last time Streets was 6th was 1990-01-10. Previous night, it opened. #U2360ANA
@FernandoDante Indeed it was.
RT @EdgeFest: HOLY SWEET SHIT. See? Production MY ASS. They could have done this all along!!!!!!!!!!!! So happy for those who are there!
Oh god, when was Streets this early in a set? Not even I (Ax) know this one off the top of my head. Lovetown presumably. #U2360ANA
@MUSEified_gurrl Because it’s a 2nd night and they always feel like they can play around a bit more on 2nd nights.
Hey U2, we’re just six songs in and this is already the best concert of the tour. Care to release it for fans only? #U2360ANA
Yes, it is! Where the Streets Have No Name crops up at number six; Ax, care to share the stats? ;-) #U2360ANA
Ax: Not the highest Achtung rep this tour, just equal. 5 Achtung songs also done on 2nd nights in BA, SP, MX City. #U2360ANA
Sixth is Amazing Grace. Which can only mean Streets is sixth surely..? #U2360ANA
Just five songs in and I think this is already the most Achtung Baby representation of the tour. Ax? #U2360ANA
Well, this set of surprises makes up for how predictable the last few sets have been! #U2360ANA
So to recap the set thus far: EBTTRT-tour debut of The Fly-Mysterious Ways-UTEOTW-One #U2360ANA
Ax here just to say this is the earliest One has appeared in a main set since 1993 (equal with that 2001-05-16 set). #U2360ANA
I’m now getting the feeling that this is not a U2360 concert; it’s Glastonbury 6 days in advance. #U2360ANA
And after this most amazing start to a U2 concert in recent memory, the fifth song of the night is IALW. Kidding, it’s One #U2360ANA
@FernandoDante God I know! Think I’m (Ax) deaf now.
Sounds like there is some rambling/snippetry in UTEOTW, but I can’t make it out unfortunately. #U2360ANA. But there is a little Anthem
@atu2 I fully support playing Achtung in it’s entirety ;)
Definitely having a flashback to that 16/05/01 gig now! No idea what the MW snip was, alas. #U2360ANA
And what could be fourth? Why, it’s Until the End of the World! #U2360ANA
Though for the record, I hope IWF or OOC shows up somewhere in the set. Every set needs some Boy. #U2360ANA
We’re three songs in and everything is turned on it’s head. We could be in for an amazing night at this rate; fingers crossed! #U2360ANA
Just saying, but this would be a kick-ass opening trinity for #U2Glasto.
Third is Mysterious Ways. What the hell with this set! I’m in heaven! #U2360ANA
This is just my humble opinion, but I think The Fly works much better than I Will Follow ;) With luck we’ll track down some video after
But talk about an opening one-two punch - Even Better Than the Real Thing and The Fly! Achtung y’all, we’re back in 1993! #U2360ANA
And my first stream closed down and I can’t reconnect (max listeners reached), so I may be a minute or two behind; we’ll have to see
Ax again: The Fly? FUCK YES. About time! #U2360ANA
Second song is The Fly? Woot! #U2360ANA
Quick poll: what is your favourite opener of the tour? Breathe, Magnificent, Stingray, Beautiful Day, or EBTTRT? #U2360ANA
Ax checking in. I’ll leave most of tonight’s coverage to Matkin. PS Oh you Northern Hemisphereans and your weird early Father’s Day.
Opening song of the night is Even Better Than the Real Thing #U2360ANA
Space Oddity #U2360ANA
Oh, and to all the Fathers who are currently on the 19th of June; Happy Father’s Day to you! Hope your day is full of joy! #U2360ANA
No word on a stream yet, but if we hear of one we will pass it along as usual :) #U2360ANA
@u2kat We should be only a few minutes away!
Hello hello! What time is it in the world? And where are we going? #U2360ANA
Who knows; we may do something like this again someday! It’s always a pleasure to hear from you all.
New article: Glastonbury & Fan Speculation http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… Thanks all who replied to our question earlier!
@butterking I think it is normally between 8:30 and 9:00; depends on the show and the curfew they have to meet. Earlier the better!
RT @EdgeFest: Play the damn Fly tonight,or I will not still love you tomorrow, Bono (Bad would also save you) I will still love The Edge btw
