The 2 or 3 thousand select invited fans seem to have loved the Corrs. They’ll go ballistic for U2 at this pretend concert! #U2360PRE
The Corrs have finished their set and left the stage. Elvis Costello will be on stage in about 20 minutes. Just over an hour until U2!
Final soundchecked song is New Year’s Day, according to @EmiVz. Will it make it into the show? We’ll have to see!
It seems we will also have a couple of guest performers tonight… #U2360PRE
Just over two hours until it all kicks off! And I hear that the first opener, the Corrs, are taking the stage in 20 minutes! #U2360PRE
Reminder to everyone that tonight is a PRETEND concert; U2 are not actually playing in Dublin! ;-) #U2360PRE
@jenheartsU2 It’ll be posted as the pretend show progresses, just like usual!
@smili72 Oh it’s definitely U2. Edge’s guitar is unmistakeable
@snappyjdog We’ll tone it down a lot until it ‘starts’ in about three hours. ;-)
@The_Impulse A little over three hours
It is a pretend concert for the fans who want to experience the thrill of live tweeting the tour again. And it’s been fun so far! #U2360PRE
I’ve seen a lot of questions about why we are doing this. The answer is…
I won’t spill the bins on that opener in case it is pretend played tonight. I’ve gotta say though… it was bloody awesome! #U2360PRE
@snappyjdog It’s a pretend concert for the fans who want to experience the thrill of live tweeting the tour again
Dammit, it looks like the reception of 360 strikes again; I’ve been pretend cut off! If I can get something stable going tonight, I will…
Wait… that isn’t the Even Better Than the Real Thing guitar… oh. Oh wow. Oh my God! It can’t be! #U2360PRE
U2 back on stage for the pretend soundcheck. Space Oddity is playing over the PA… could be a full set run-through? #U2360PRE
Ouch! @U2LineNazi is shouting in my ear about not being invited to the pretend concert. Though I hear he’s made it to the front anyways
@Opti_maX Sorry, it’s actually four hours that our pretend concert starts.
@XFreddy1 It is a pretend concert for the people who want to experience the thrill of live tweeting during the tour again
@spenceeastwood There is one on the printed set; but of course, it doesn’t include many snippets!
Only 5 hours until our pretend U2 concert gets underway! Are you all excited? #U2360PRE
@JohnnyVOXX It was only played over the PA. Talk about false hope! But I hear there will be quite a few Achtung references in there tonight
@fers12314 It is a pretend concert for the fans who want to experience the thrill of live tweeting the tour again.
@lennonbono We don’t know at this point. BBC Worldwide Canada has got the distribution rights. It would be nice to see it in theatres though
@MassF …a tweet every three or four minutes the night of, and a few beforehand to prepare people. Not much time at all
@MassF Actually, it only takes about 3 hours over the course of 2 light days. 5 minutes to write the article, 5 minutes to amend it…
Remember to read the article! http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… This is a fake concert for the fans who wanted to experience 360 again
I see a lot of people are hoping for some surprises. Hopefully ‘U2’ deliver! #U2360PRE
One, BD, and Vertigo have been checked (all intrumental). A complete run-through earlier was similar to 360; but with some surprises!
We have people on the ground; they’ve reported a few soundcheck details. No Bono so far, but Edge seems to be filling in #U2360PRE
@AdamLBoyd I hope you are joking…
Though I have to say, I am glad that everyone is taking it in stride so far! I’m glad U2 fans have such a sense of humour!
(Incidentally, Ax and Matt didn’t actually plan any of this. So if you are angry about #U2360PRE, please be angry at me, not them)
But if you are genuinely aggreived about it, I unreservedly apologize to you. I do hope that you still enjoy it tomorrow
I’m glad that so many people aren’t too disappointed with the truth about #U2360PRE.
@LilZe1888 We will have to wait and see!
#U2360PRE is not a real event; it’s just the pretend concert so many people asked us for. We will still have fun with the surprises tomorrow
I really hope I didn’t get anyone too carried away. I was just trying to set up the date for a pretend 360 concert, as I promised we would
Woah there everyone! Perhaps I wasn’t clear enough in the article (my fault). #U2360PRE is a PRETEND event; as promised after Moncton & TIFF
@popartist61 Midnight is when the day begins ;-)
I’ve seen a few people say they want to catch a late plane to Dublin - don’t! We don’t what it is, or even where it is. Very secretive!
@JimmyChevalier Don’t do that! It’s a pretend event!
I get the feeling that tomorrow will be a bit exciting for us all! #U2360PRE
Last message for tonight from Ax (the time diff has messed up his sleep a bit). He’s heard it will happen in 24 hours from now #U2360PRE
Sorry folks, I didn’t mean to send two hours. Ax meant tomorrow; my fingers got too excited to keep up with my brain! #U2360PRE
We’ll keep you posted as we hear things. Use the hashtag #U2360PRE
We hear a few other fans have also been invited, but things are a bit secretive at the moment. Ax doesn’t have good reception at the moment
If what he says is true, it’s due to his work with U2Gigs; and apparently something involving U2 is going down in two hours! #U2360PRE
Hey everyone, I’ve just received a text from Ax. He’s been called to Ireland for some special ‘business’.
