Just spotted this older tweet :) https://twitter.com/itsk…
@stateless79 and ALWAYS turn off the flash/light. It’s useless at concerts and annoying :-)
@stateless79 Apps like ProCamera or Camera+ should be fine. Set higher ISO about 400/800 and a shutter speed about 1/60 to 1/125.
@xAquaheart ah that’s you :-)
@robertjwitte Yeah apart from Electric Co that set didn’t do much for me (Ax)…
And if you still have a nerdy itch to scratch after reading our report, here’s some great data to enjoy! https://twitter.com/mark…
Others say it counts as a Crumbs From Your Table ref, but it’s a common phrase in human rights activism & that’s how I think Bono meant it.
The Great Snippet Debate continues! “Where you live should not decide whether you live or die” in Streets intro. I say not a snippet.
@EveryBrokenWave After all the work they’ve put into multiple songs pre-tour, it seems a waste they haven’t played heaps of them!
@Drea104 Don’t we already have sonic whiplash from EBW to Bullet? ;)
I’m switching the set to say LAPOE for now, for pretty much this reason (plus LAPOE fits the SBS/RBW/UTEOTW theme): https://twitter.com/Kevi…
I’m enjoying getting tweets of “clearly sung BEP style” or “yeah it was def LAPOE style”. THE GREAT #U2 SNIPPET DEBATE OF 30 MAY 2015.
I actually wasn’t even inclined to include that “where is the love?” thing as a snip in UTEOTW until a few people tweeted to point it out.
OK people, UTEOTW snippet debate: Bono sang “love, love, where is the love?” x2. A LAPOE snip (per @atu2) or a BEP Where Is The Love? snip.
@postrin I (Ax) think I copped full band Stuck in Melbourne 2010. I wiped it from my memory.
This is right. IE Tour after 9 shows has 35 songs. 1st leg of 360 had 35 including Happy Birthday & Auld Triangle. https://twitter.com/Kevi…
@EveryBrokenWave It’s one of U2’s ten worst songs whatever way they play it. (Chris is coming to kill me now, I’m sure.)
And Stuck In A Moment! I (Chris) am thrilled!
Chris here. Just got home from covering a The Who concert. Just popping in to say it’s nice to see Elevation make its tour debut! Sorry Ax!
@EveryBrokenWave At least it’s not Stuck - but I fear that’s next.
@StartAtlnfinity Yep, agreed, so much has been rehearsed, would love to see more rotations.
@harbinger384 I was all prepared to go “hoooooly shit!” and write an excitable tweet. Damnit Bono!
I may be in a huge minority here, but if #U2 are going to play a song with “mystery” in title, I want it to be She’s A Mystery To Me.
Bono recited something at end of UTEOTW, prob from one of the books he throws to crowd; will need recording to figure out what that was. #U2
@EveryBrokenWave MW is worthless live without the slide solo. Can’t believe how much weaker 360/IE versions are compared to older ones.
@EveryBrokenWave It’s not even a big fav of mine in any form, but it’s always nice to hear songs live that I haven’t heard at prev gigs.
@EveryBrokenWave I don’t care what version they play, just as long as it stays in the set outside of the Americas!
Looks like there might be another audio stream here, though not working for me right now. https://twitter.com/JimM…
@EveryBrokenWave I seriously have no idea how I managed to type it as “Bong” that night I was drunk on Interference. Boy oh boy was I drunk.
@U2sJerseygirl I was drunk on Interference the other day and somehow actually typed it as “Bong For Someone”. The joke has endured.
I’d love to hear #U2 actually do a 15 minute psychedelic freakout version of Song For Someone and release it as “Bong For Someone”.
@EveryBrokenWave (I’m making myself slightly nauseous here. I can put on my native Kiwi icksunt rul thick too bro eh.)
@EveryBrokenWave You’ve got to drag out that “i” for all it’s worth, and say it through your nose. Gunna come awt toniiiight cobber?
#Bono: “we love the fun and frolic of the Sunset Strip”; says Edge was out on the dancefloor at the Roxy after the show. “He’s a funky man!”
@atu2 I hadn’t heard him put it that way before either, but it does make some sense.
@EveryBrokenWave You need to learn a bit more Strayan. It’s g’day whether it’s midday or midnight.
@JackRyder120 Yep. Can’t believe there have only been 3 performances of Pop songs in the last decade (Discotheque x2, SATS x1).
@KevinMFeeney Ugh that’s right. I’d conveniently forgotten about that.
@ladyvesper It definitely feels weird to say decade! I (Ax) can’t believe I’ve been working on U2gigs for over ten years now.
@JeffReinhart77 I’ll wager $10 right now that it will precede EBW.
@KevinMFeeney I must have missed that…? It was checked before the Roxy too.
@dmacirish Stuck In A Long Song Title You Can’t Get Out Of.
When was the last An Cat Dubh performance? Almost a decade ago, 27 June 2005: http://www.u2gigs.com/sh…
@KevinMFeeney I’m worried they’ll interpret the Roxy enthusiasm as “let’s put Stuck/Elev in set”, not “let’s put 11OTT/Ocean in set”.
UNCONFIRMED: Some people say UF & Hawkmoon soundchecked. Others say they were played by radio station loudly near GA. Be sceptical for now.
Hey folks, Ax here to take you through LA 3 #U2ieTour. In case you couldn’t guess, I very much hope 11 O’clock Tick Tock stays in the set.
@TrailerTrsh Oooh! Some folk on Interference say Hawkmoon (& UF) played loudly by a radio station near GA. But you say you heard it inside?
@frankbrouwerss I guess it will be a good one. I’ll be there as well.
@frankbrouwerss Look closer at song 19. There it is.
@chikalakerz I haven’t heard anything so far :)
@ChikaLakerz If you find some time to upload the current photos I’m happy to post them :)
@RolandSquire Indeed he is!
SilRigote Finally at home. I’m the happiest girl in the world right now. So glad you guys could be part of it somehow. We get to carry each other ;)
@gunga07 They were using Beat On The Brat mixed w/ EBTTRT and Discotheque. Since Phoenix they’re using Patti Smith’s People Have The Power.
@cqleonardo No, it was not. The only change was the band playing Vertigo.
Co-signed! Simply an incredible performance of an astonishing setlist. Hope 11OTT sticks around - it was scorching. https://twitter.com/U2ur…
@u2interference I was actually surprised it wasn’t later on the UF Tour.
It’s time for bed for me (Chris). U2 turned back the clocks to 1980 tonight, glad I stayed awake for it! Night all and congrats Ax!
@mhealy1972 Hopefully we’re treated with some surprises, as it’s the last show of the North American leg
I (Chris) only wish Ax was actually there to see that gig! Unreal opening quartet with awesome energy. Good on @U2 for playing this set.
To recap: THE OCEAN AND 11 O’CLOCK TICK TOCK! Out Of Control, The Electric Co and I Will Follow made five Boy era songs. #U2Roxy
Sounds like the gig is over. Just 12 songs, but what an action packed set it was. #U2Roxy
Band have left the stage. Will there be a second encore? Pretty please #U2!
God Only Knows snippet in California #U2Roxy
@mhealy1972 18th, 26th and 31st
California freaking rocks both on SOI and live, in my opinion. I’m praying I (Chris) get to see it live in NYC. #U2Roxy
