@_aihsila Maybe I can make myself a shirt from the bag on the very left side ;)
@_aihsila If this is the complete range of shirts I’ll save a lot of money this time :)
Bono whispered to fans his voice is overstrained so he’s not leaving the car.
Just heard from our friend Stefan at Rogers Adam was outside for a few minutes. Bono just waving. I hope for some photos to post later.
OK here we go! Interesting, no Miracle Drug before Streets tonight. https://twitter.com/U2to…
We don’t know what was played between BDay and ISHFWILF. My guess is Miracle Drug/Streets. @Reddef69 can you clarify?
Looks like ISHFWILF was final song of the night - their next tweet says rehearsals appear to be over. https://twitter.com/Redd…
@Noodles105 Thank you. :)
@Noodles105 I think it’s close, though Pride after Bullet is weird.
Thanks heaps, guys! In another tweet they say the rehearsal’s not over yet so let’s hope for more info soon… https://twitter.com/U2to…
An idea for fans to discuss and consider. https://twitter.com/DrPa…
@ryannichols7 I’m shattered I missed ES. It was done the first show before the 7 I saw them in Europe, and the second show after my run.
@U2santos I think so. There were 360 sets that reached 20 songs in the main set but don’t think any passed that.
@ryannichols7 And yeah One/Ordinary Love would… not be a great ending, in my view. (This is Ax, lest I appear to speak for anyone else!)
@ryannichols7 Possibly! I’m curious to see how much variation is on night two, and if that brings any big surprises.
@DANBEST84 Some people don’t like spoilers, others like being immersed in everything. I like the info overload.
WOWY’s outro is getting a bit of work. https://twitter.com/U2to…
@DANBEST84 Personally I think it adds to the fun.
@ccarroll101 No rumours of Dubai/UAE yet. About time they visited that part of the world.
#U2 have rehearsed a whole bunch of options to follow Bullet: One Step Closer, Hands, RTSS, The Troubles - and tonight Pride gets that role.
@GregoryMcArthur Haha these abbreviations can be hard to keep straight.
Well that was unexpected, Pride is next after Bullet. https://twitter.com/U2to…
Bono’s put a lot of time into rehearsing this Bullet rant for the #U2ieTour
@GregoryMcArthur The Playboy Mansion
@Dan_EvanR Funny how I think of Sweetest Thing as a rarity, since it’s only been played live 30 times, but obv it was big hit, on a Best Of!
As expected, Every Breaking Wave is the acoustic version. https://twitter.com/U2to…
I like the prospect of this EBTTRT/Desire combo. https://twitter.com/U2to…
@therod730 The Hands That Built America
If you haven’t grabbed your popcorn, looks like you were too slow and the band are back. https://twitter.com/atu2…
@u2rob73 Thanks! :)
Intermission time, folks. Go grab your popcorn. https://twitter.com/U2to…
@FernandoDante We missed doing them! It’s been much too long since Moncton.
If you guessed UTEOTW was next, you were right. https://twitter.com/U2to…
@u2rob73 Speaking for myself (Ax) and not for any others at U2gigs, I won’t queue for more than an hour or two!
Raised By Wolves is ninth. #U2ieTour
I must admit I struggle to imagine a ballad like Song For Someone sitting comfortably between two songs as fiery as Cedarwood and SBS!
8th is Sunday Bloody Sunday. #U2ieTour
@U2comZooMods I’ve used TwitCasting last tour with success. I guess the bad reception in indoor arenas will be the main issue with any app.
Fifth song is Iris. @U2tour report that the songs are difficult to hear.
@EveryBrokenWave Oh man yes. Tragedy that it was only played eight times. Hawkmoon was one of U2’s most perfect live tracks.
@EveryBrokenWave UF is a great live song but not a definitive classic for me. ASOH is right up there though.
@EveryBrokenWave Top three live U2 for me are One Tree Hill, Bad, and 11 O’clock Tick Tock. Those three define the best qualities.
joe_ahorro This is the first time I’m hearing Iris (Hold me Close) live. Amazing. Best place to listen is at Gate 7 at Rogers Arena.
@EveryBrokenWave I maintain that Bad, not Streets, is the definitive live U2 song.
@EveryBrokenWave Then again OOTS, after promo tour performances, missed the start of Vertigo before being brought into the set.
@EveryBrokenWave Given it was played on the promo tour, I’d be stunned if Volcano didn’t make it - but seems possible right now.
@EveryBrokenWave I wouldn’t worry about COBL, but I am curious about the fate of OSC and TPM.
The rumour that opening night may be postponed because of Larry’s father’s death has been quashed: http://www.rte.ie/ten/ne…
