@atu2comSherry Shine Like Stars was done 6 times on 360; last was 2011-07-09, Montreal. There’ve actually been just 12 full tour gigs since.

Last time all 4 Joshua Tree singles (not counting NZ/Aus-only One Tree Hill) played at same show? 3 October 1989, Brisbane. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Yes, Sil’s streams of the shows so far have been great! On behalf of everybody who’s enjoyed them, thank you Sil! https://twitter.com/smil…

 via Twitter Web Client

@annie_nyc Beautiful Day was 20th, between Pride and Bad. :)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to annie_nyc

Pretty fun to put In God’s Country in our database - I (Ax) have never got to add a new performance of it before! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Here is our updated overview of the first Phoenix show with setlist and stats: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end, folks. Longest show of tour by one song. Setlist here: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Hah, another “careful” comment from Bono to Edge, mocking his Vancouver stage fall. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

This is the longest show of tour. All previous shows 23-24 songs long. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

25. Bono then says “there is still so much for us to do”, leading into I Still Haven’t Found. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “Why are we still here? I don’t mean in the existential sense … I think you answered the question tonight.” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono leading the crowd in singing “ooooh!” at end of Streets. Now thanking the band’s “genius” crew. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Snippet of California in Streets - that’s becoming a fixture. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Speech time. Bono thanking people working for Red, Amnesty International, etc. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

I hope The Troubles is done again soon. Only song to be dropped completely after the opening night of its debut tour is Like a Song in ’83.

 via Twitter Web Client

23. City Of Blinding Lights #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Here’s the Stephen Hawking intro. Will next be COBL, or will Miracle Drug make its 2nd appearance of the tour? #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Encore break. Catch up on the main set (Electric Co! In God’s Country! Bad!): http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

At the end of WOWY solo I keep hoping to hear “YEEAAAHHHH WE’LL SHINE LIKE STARS IN THE SUMMER NIGHT”. Alas, that’s rare as hen’s teeth now.

 via Twitter Web Client

@ChipSwain @JeffReinhart77 Yeah I’m surprised nothing was cut from main set to include In God’s Country.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ChipSwain

@ChipSwain Bad was also in the main set at San Jose 2, though that was not written down on the printed set.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ChipSwain

Moment Of Surrender snippet in Bad. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2comSherry That was so ridiculously loose it was kind of endearing haha.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2comSherry

@sb_wreeldeal I think they arrive early afternoon when they are soundchecking. If they don’t do a check they’ll arrive later.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

When The Electric Co., Bad, and In God’s Country are in the set, it’s hard to disagree with Sil’s enthusiastic endorsement! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bad was only played at consecutive shows once on 360 - and they were its first two performances, 21 and 24 July 2009.

 via Twitter Web Client

21. BAD! Sil screams “it’s the best show so far!” over her stream: http://mixlr.com/sil-rig… #U2ieTour #U2

Little snippet of America in Bullet. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Worth noting that In God’s Country has only been played 8 times since end of JT Tour: Lovetown x4, Elevation x3, and now IE x1.

 via Twitter Web Client

@ryannichols7 Yep. Tryin’ To Throw and Playboy Mansion have been rehearsed so maybe they’ll get a run. Curious to see if much variety in LA.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

Pretty loose on both In God’s Country and Sweetest Thing - and fun. #U2ieTour #U2

I (Matt) just turned on a periscope stream and what do I hear?? In God’s Country #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Matt)

Yes you can cue my “OH MY GOD OH MY GOD” reaction to The Electric Co. from San Jose for In God’s Country too! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

I (Ax) am so excited the second side of the Joshua Tree has been acknowledged! This is an excellent song. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

They’re getting him a guitar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono’s just asked a guy in the crowd if he knows the chords to In God’s Country!! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Huh, no snippets in Desire tonight. #U2ieTour #U2

 via U2gigs (Chris)

10. Until The End Of The World, after a snippet of Psalm 23 at the end of Raised By Wolves #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

The chorus of Raised By Wolves getting a good singalong. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

And of course Sil’s great audio stream: http://mixlr.com/sil-rig… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Plenty of Periscope streams out there, e.g. https://www.periscope.tv… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@FernandoDante Yeah that one’s not working for me right now either.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to FernandoDante

7. Song For Someone - or, as I inadvertently called it on Interference last night, Bong For Someone. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

6. Cedarwood Road, after a long Bono-led singalong of “free yourself to be yourself” at end of Iris. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

If you’ll indulge me suddenly feeling homesick thanks to Bono, you can see why part of me never left Raumati Beach: https://c2.staticflickr….

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono: “There’s a part of everyone that’s still on the street you grew up.” Yep, definitely part of me never left Raumati Beach, New Zealand.

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono talking to the crowd, “here in this miracle of a landscape that is Arizona”. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono has an eight year old boy on stage during I Will Follow. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Very lengthy Send In The Clowns snippet in The Electric Co. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

If you don’t know, I (Ax) am SO delighted that The Electric Co. has stayed in the set! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Interesting, Bono down on the E stage at the start. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

First song of the night at the first show in Phoenix is The Miracle. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@JackRyder120 I’m not sure what her Twitter is, but yes I hope she knows how appreciative the fanbase is!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JackRyder120

@JeffReinhart77 Yeah I’m worried I’m a total jinx on streams now!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JeffReinhart77

@harbinger384 Nah that’s a proper Melbourne-style chicken parmigiana (exhibit A: last night, what a night). But pizza is a close second.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to harbinger384

Looks like we’ll have Sil’s Mixlr stream tonight, awesome: http://mixlr.com/sil-rig… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Nothing to do with U2, but pizza is the hangover food of champions. PS Shh U2, my head hurts.

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal Yeah I’m honestly surprised they’re not at least pushing to 26-27 songs.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to sb_wreeldeal

@Rusty_Olson You and me both. I was CERTAIN it would debut at Dublin 3 after sitting in GA queue listening to it being soundchecked.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Rusty_Olson

When I was 15 and saw the Under a Blood Red Sky video for the first time, Surrender impressed me immediately. 11OTT sealed the deal.

 via Twitter Web Client

We’ve had a number of our followers express a similar hope actually! I (Ax) would love Surrender to return. https://twitter.com/BeeZ…

 via Twitter Web Client

I’m still gutted that U2 didn’t play Mofo live on the Vertigo Tour after rehearsing it extensively during the third leg.

 via Twitter Web Client

Since end of Elevation in Dec ’01, Pop songs have appeared live a total of THREE times: Discotheque twice, Sept ’05; SATS once, Oct ’11.

 via Twitter Web Client

Chris posted earlier about wanting Gone, LNOE, Discotheque, or Please on the #U2ieTour. I (Ax) agree wholeheartedly. Do You Feel Loved too.

 via Twitter Web Client

@sb_wreeldeal Who knows, maybe they’ll surprise us with some Pop at MSG in July. I’ll be at the 1st and last NY shows

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to sb_wreeldeal

@Number9uk You must be thinking of Ax and the rest of the gang!

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to Number9uk

@JackRyder120 Much appreciated! But yes! If God Will Send His Angels is another one of those hidden gems.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to JackRyder120

@sb_wreeldeal Hearing about a supposed acoustic section, I was convinced Please would show up there.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to sb_wreeldeal

@sb_wreeldeal It really does add a nice comedic element to the account, doesn’t it! Ax is great.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to sb_wreeldeal

I don’t mean to crowd everyone’s Twitter, but thanks for welcoming me these last few weeks! I love following sets and interacting with y’all

 via U2gigs (Chris)

@Drea104 oh man, wasn’t the Discotheque snippet in Crazy Tonight such a tease?

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to Drea104

@ryannichols7 Definitely. Maybe we’ll eventually get The Playboy Mansion this tour

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to ryannichols7

@welshevs75 I’d give my left arm to see Velvet Dress.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to welshevs75

@pdxmormongirl And to think Pop was the U2 album I struggled to love for the longest time!

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to pdxmormongirl

@cmac1127 Why not both?! What gems they both are.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to cmac1127

@Hoosier2012 LNOE kicks so much butt! And I’m indifferent on Mofo. Not a huge fan. Would rock live though, I’m sure.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to Hoosier2012

@dgta31 the original Mercy is in my personal top 5 or 6 U2 songs, so I agree with you on that end.

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to dgta31

I would personally love to see If You Wear That Velvet Dress the most (it’s my favorite!) but I’ll take just about any Pop song.

 via U2gigs (Chris)

I don’t know if the great Ax would agree, but I’d kill to hear Last Night On Earth, Discotheque, Gone or Please on the #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

But as I travel, I’ve been listening to Pop from start to end. Real crime it’s had little to no representation since Elevation, huh?

 via U2gigs (Chris)

Hi all, Chris here. Sadly, I won’t be able to follow much tonight. I’m traveling a few hundred miles as we speak. Have fun tonight everyone!
