This is Ax, signing off for now. See you folk in a couple of days for Glastonbury - can’t wait to see what the band play!
So, will MOS again have a Jungleland snip? Will a 40 snip show up after that soundcheck? #U2360BAL
@postrin Nope, tonight’s the usual 24 songs.
@spenceeastwood I’m wondering if they will at least get a snippet of 40 …
@AnalogWalrus I just really want to hear a song live from RAH that I actually like a lot. Not that keen on Desire or AOH, esp not acoustic.
24th and presumably last is Moment Of Surrender. #U2360BAL
@spenceeastwood I reckon 40 is just for Glasto. We’ll see …
@AnalogWalrus I can outdo you there! 19 gigs, never AIWIY. They’ve played it immediately after gigs I’ve seen too! :(
WOWY clocks in at 23rd as usual. #U2360BAL
@AnalogWalrus I was too young to see Lovetown, so can I have Hawkmoon in every set until the end of time? ;)
The last time UV was done in a city in which U2 played just one gig was on 2010-09-30, Seville. #U2360BAL
This is the first time UV has been played this year in a single-gig city. All previous 2011 appearances have been on 2nd nights. #U2360BAL
22nd song of the night is, surprisingly, Ultra Violet rather than HMTMKMKM. (Personal view: Ugh.) #U2360BAL
Second encore break now. #U2360BAL
Snippet of Amazing Grace leads into Streets, 21st song of the night and also back to its usual spot. #U2360BAL
So, chalk One down as 20th song of the night, back to its usual spot after its foray to the top of the set at Anaheim 2. #U2360BAL
Scarlet and Walk On
Sunday Bloody Sunday #U2360BAL
Discotheque snippet as usual. And the storm has arrived with an almighty downpour! #U2360BAL
Oops, got distracted sorry! vertigo is next as usual. #U2360BAL
City of Blinding Lights. What will the effects be like for this visual masterpiece if they play it at Glastonbury? #U2360BAL
Zooropa stays with us #U2360BAL It would be awesome to hear this on Friday night!
Miss Sarajvo is next #U2360BAL
PS Hey U2, I think you’ve forgotten an album. Still waiting for that RAH remaster with some sweet Lovetown bonus material. #U2360BAL
But this really is now the Achtung Remaster Tour rather than the NLOTH Tour … #U2360BAL
Ax again: I think BD/Magnif/Pride would work much better than BD/Elev/Pride … and it’d be some NLOTH rep! #U2360BAL
Oh yeah, and ignore the #U2360BAL tweets coming from guttermagazine. They’re complete bullshit.
Space Oddity snippeted at the end of Beautiful Day again (thanks @atu2)
Hmm… I guess I can let it pass this once, Ax ;-) Oh yeah, and Beautiful Day is up now. #U2360BAL
Though of course I’d dearly love them to do a proper electric Stay … #U2360BAL
If Matkin will let me ;) I’d just like to say I’m very happy Stay is back in the set. Best of this tour’s acoustic songs. #U2360BAL
I hear thunder outside. Seems a storm is brewing. Let’s check the weather network… YOW! Big thunderstorm on the way! If I vanish, u know y
Well I see Matkin has usurped me. ;) Got to be honest, all the gigs I’ve seen without ISHF in the set, I didn’t even notice it was gone.
Hey, go away Ax! This is my turf! ;)
Ax here, just to say that I hope we haven’t reached the end of AIWIY’s good run. #U2360BAL
If I’m being honest, I was kinda hoping that All I Want Is You would be back tonight #U2360BAL
@tnbosoxfan From what I’ve heard the crowd enjoyed her and gave her a good reception. You will get Florence at Nashville :)
@atu2 Ever since I fell for that “live stream” playing Discotheque, I’ve been a bit cautious :P
@atu2 Thanks mate!
Get on Your Boots is sixth I think #U2360BAL
Okay, it is live. I Will Follow is fifth tonight. Seems the set is changed up a bit from Anaheim 2. One & Streets back in the encore?
Anybody with a spare ticket going for St. louis? @wxander would love to hear from you!
@wxander None that I know of :(
Third up is Mysterious Ways. #U2360BAL
@cleasai A good ear for U2, and tweets from the stadium ;-)
Stream comes back online just in time for the kick-ass solo. #U2360BAL
Getting word that The Fly follows Even Better Than the Real Thing #U2360BAL
Opening song is Even Better Than the Real Thing #U2360BAL
Space Oddity has begun to play. We are moments away from showtime! #U2360BAL
If anyone is buying/selling U2 tickets to/from Canada, make sure you take into account the current postal strike by Canada Post!
@jontee_c You’re just too generous!
Sounds like Florence is finishing her set. U2 will be on stage in a while #U2360BAL
@_Dream_Out_Loud It doesn’t matter where in the tweet you put the hashtag so long as it has # in front of U2360BAL
RT @hatznet I’m not @ concert but my 10 yr old daughter is w/ my wife. It’s her first concert. Desi, have a great time, say hi to Bono 4me
@Achtung_Fahey Same one; I’m a bit late to the party
And the opening act, Florence, has taken the stage. #U2360BAL
Okay, so more soundcheck news: Mysterious Ways, The Fly, and 40 have been reported. I don’t know if it is band or crew #U2360BAL
