Watch Bono and Edge perform again: http://www.youtube.com/w…
I’ve always said AMAAW is one of Atomic Bomb’s most under-rated tracks. When it wasn’t played on Vertigo, I thought it never would be.
Ax here, coming out of what I guess was something of an unannounced hiatus. A Man And A Woman? Woah! And SATS? Nice. #ClintonConcert
Good night everyone, thanks for joining us!
Oh wow, he hit that perfectly! The best Miss Sarajevo ever?
Full set: Desire, I Still Haven’t Found, A MAN AND A WOMAN, Sunday Bloody Sunday, STARING AT THE SUN, One, Miss Sarajevo
Yes, it is. Bono says it is their last. Miss Sarajevo concludes the set. #ClintonConcert
Bono is talking about Sarajevo. Could be Miss Sarajevo? #ClintonConcert
Oh wait, an encore? Clinton says yes.
…I still can’t believe my internet froze during A Man and a Woman (which now happens to be a trending topic on Twitter!)
Happy birthday snippet
Honestly, at this stage I wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled out Heartland or Two Hearts Beat as One.
This is the best performance since Pavarotti and Friends back in 1995
One is sixth. Bono says it wasn’t a hit.
Trivia: Staring at the Sun was just nine days away from being a full decade since the last performance
Staring at the Sun is fifth.
I had an excellent connection until U2 came on. Then it all went down the proverbial toilet. #notpleased
Bono improvises the final verse of Sunday Bloody Sunday. #ClintonConcert
I really hope somebody has managed to record this without the problems I’m having. I would die if I never saw the debut of AMAAW.
I only wish my net would stop freezing so I could listeb to more than a third of a song. #ClintonConcert
Sunday Bloody Sunday is fourth
…I missed the whole thing *sobs*
THE FIRST EVER PERFORMANCE OF A MAN AND A WOMAN!!!! AND MY FUCKING INTERNET DISCONNECTS DURING IT!!!
And my feed has frozen. Damn.
This is a really nice change of pace from the full band version. I’m enjoying it more than I have in years. #ClintonConcert
I Still Haven’t Found is second
Nice to hear that again
Wow, Bill himself will introduce the boys it seems. #ClintonConcert
And now an intermission? Seems odd to have it before the final act.
That was an amusing video
Bono and Edge are up next folks! Last chance to lay your bets on what they’ll play! #ClintonConcert
@atu2comSherry Hmm… would be nice if I could!
RT @bethandbono: Not sure what the William J. Clinton Foundation does, but this concert has helped convince me that Gaga is, indeed, a lady
Hahah, Lady Gaga tells Clinton she wishes he would play sax with her. #ClintonConcert
Stevie Wonder, Kenny Chesney, K’naan, Juanes, Usher, and Lady Gaga… not a bad slew of opening acts! ;) #ClintonConcert
Lady Gaga is next, so Bono and The Edge will round out the show. #ClintonConcert
Usher’s set is done. Who is next, Lady Gaga or B&E? #ClintonConcert
And I actually don’t like the Beatles either. Never have. So this is actually the best version of it that I’ve heard. In my opinion o’course
Yes, yes, I am joking. Consider it a shoutout to my mother (who isn’t even on Twitter). She loves Joe Cocker.
I prefer this to the original actually. But then, I’m really not a fan of Cocker’s voice. #ClintonConcert
Usher covering Joe Cocker? I didn’t expect that. #ClintonConcert
Usher is on next. Probably Gaga to follow, and then Bono and Edge to close #ClintonConcert
Oh look, it’s Charlie Sheen’s replacement!
Juanes is a very popular artist in Latin and South America it seems. I can see why. #ClintonConcert
Ah, so the song was a new one. I do hope we find out its name! ‘Unknown song’ looks tacky in the database :P
Bono joins K’Naan onstage. Nice to see them sing together again. Now what is this song called? #ClintonConcert
K’Naan is the third act
“Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico!” I hate Country music with a passion, but that’s a funny lyric #ClintonConcert
Okay, I got disconnected and now all I’ve seen is 6 ads in a row. Anyone else with this problem? #ClintonConcert
That’s it for Stevie Wonder. Up next: Kenny Chesney
Make that five songs for Stevie Wonder. And I’m pretty sure even I’ve heard this one before! #ClintonConcert
Thanks to everyone for keeping my updated on what the songs are; its nice to know what the song is!
Stevie Wonder is on his fourth song; a prelude for what’s to come with everyone else?
@atu2comSherry Not to mention One a la Miss Sarajevo b-side; that’s still my favourite rendition.
@atu2comSherry Oh, good choices! Hadn’t realized this would be full orchestra! Pride and BD would be awesome with that backing!
I do like the stage design and lighting they’ve got going on. Is Willie Williams in the house? #ClintonConcert
@atu2comSherry One is a cert, and I’m also guessing Stay. MoS or Desire could be the others? I think we’ll see someone join them for 1 song
@atu2comSherry I’m going to guess three or four songs with two snippets. How about you?
I’ve admittedly never listened to Stevie Wonder before. But I do quite like this song (whatever it is called) #ClintonConcert
Stevie Wonder opens the concert #ClintonConcert
Speech by Clinton, with celebrities joining in. #ClintonConcert
Its rare that The Edge is billed before Bono, but’s exactly what Yahoo just did. Cool. Sounds like it is about to start. #ClintonConcert
As for the question of what (if anything) else they will play… we’ll have to wait and see. My money is on acoustic MOS. What do you guess?
