@johnnyo217 Yep, no reports yet of an NYD rehearsal yet! U2 seem to find it pretty easy to pull that one out at fairly short notice.
@atu2comSherry a commenter on the site mentioned a large contingent of Special Olympians and volunteers to be among the guests.
Our article with the latest from Vancouver including a dress rehearsal setlist has been updated one more time: http://u2.gs/pn
@Colonizedmind25 Loved them joining in on Ordinary Love the last time U2 were on Fallon too! (I was at the Invisible performance!)
@atu2comSherry All we’ve heard is that Hands led into The Troubles
Thanks for following along, everyone! It’s sure been a while since Moncton and the end of 360, hasn’t it? This is Chris, signing off…
The set will be updated when more info becomes available. With that, I (Chris) am off to bed, as it’s 1:30am here in NYC!
With no more reports leaking from Vancouver, here is tonight’s incomplete rehearsal set one more time: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
The Roots joined U2 for Angel of Harlem, which featured a (very) extended outro and an Edge solo. T’was very enthusiastic if I may say!
U2 also played Angel of Harlem, which did not air on TV but can be seen on the Tonight Show’s website.
ICYMI: U2’s appearance/performance of Beautiful Day and Song For Someone on The Tonight Show aired an hour ago. Two strong performances
Here are the 19 songs (in order) U2 has rehearsed at tonight’s dress rehearsal in Vancouver. http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
No word from the fan with the dying phone outside the venue for a bit now. We may have to cobble the rest of the set together a bit later.
@k_now_waite I (Chris) am a huge fan of HTDAAB, especially MD. I’m hoping it gets played as well!
The fan reporting from the venue was working with a dying phone, so we may not be able to get the full set tonight. Just a FYI
@hjwallace1 No problem. I’m glad to help out Ax and the guys, they do a tremendous job!
@ryannichols7 Our fan outside the venue did not report it was played.
The certain HTDAAB song rehearsed as the “song before Streets” apparently was not played. Fascinating.
Don’t worry everybody, Where The Streets Have No Name has made an appearance.
Interesting note: the first All That You Can’t Leave Behind song of the night is 18th in the set.
@JeffReinhart77 Unknown, at the moment. I’m guessing her vocals will be played over the PA
Next is Beautiful Day. (My all time favorite song!)
Next is With Or Without You
Hi all, it’s Chris. Bullet ended with a Hands That Built America snippet, which led into The Troubles.
OK folks, this is Ax checking out, handing over coverage to Chris. It’s his first live setlist, so be good to him. Have fun!
@Alberto_Fanjon No. Very limited guest list. Our source is listening outside venue.
15th is Bullet The Blue Sky. Curious about how that EBW/Bullet transition works. Remember how well BAD/AIWIY (snip)/Bullet worked on ZooTV.
14th is Every Breaking Wave acoustic.
13th track is a song not played since 2001 - Sweetest Thing!
12th song of the dress rehearsal is Mysterious Ways.
11th song is Even Better Than The Real Thing. Unfortunately our source’s phone battery is parlously low!
There was some sort of video after UTEOTW (sounds like for #U2 to take an intermission), now tenth song is Invisible.
@RaulCamarena Cool, thank you. :)
@MartinKendell Looks like no opening act at this stage.
@RaulCamarena We understand. Look forward to having you back then!
Ninth song is Until The End Of The World.
Wolves was preceded by the sound of explosions.
Song eight of #U2ieTour dress rehearsal: Raised By Wolves.
If you’re catching up, the full setlist so far is here - 4 SOI songs, 1 HTDAAB, 1 Boy, 1 War: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar…
Seventh song of #U2 dress rehearsal is Sunday Bloody Sunday, apparently the kind of acoustic version heard in earlier rehearsals.
@johnnyo217 Hopefully later - or maybe it’ll rotate with IWF on night 1/night 2?
I know some don’t want spoilers but that is our modus operandi. We’ll live tweet #U2ieTour shows, so think will tweet dress rehearsal too.
@atu2comSherry We don’t know who’s on the guest list - hope to clarify soon…
@TheeEdge Right now!
OK so apparently a #U2 dress rehearsal show is happening for a small audience of people on a guest list. Hopefully we’ll get the setlist.
