Me too. But I’m betting ISHFWILF, if there is a 24th song. https://twitter.com/ryan…

Also, Bono said nothing - literally nothing - beforehand, so could there be a fourth song afterwards as show closer? #U2ieTour #U2

This is the first performance of One on the first night of a #U2ieTour visit to a city. The 3 previous cities only got it on night 2. #U2

@pappy90 I strongly dislike parts of October/War. HATE Stand Up Comedy, Trip Through Your Wires, Red Hill Mining Town. I don’t love it all

Speech time by #Bono. “You’re a handsome audience!” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

So here’s a formal hello from me, Ax. Interested to see if #U2 stick to a three-song encore or go for 4 songs like in Vancouver. #U2ieTour

21. City Of Blinding Lights #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

And that’s it for the main set. I (Chris) will leave you in Ax’s hands for the encore. Always great following along with you all! Night!

 via U2gigs (Chris)

@johnnyo217 One/Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow/Streets was great. As was One/Hallelujah/Streets, which I almost cried seeing live

@EveryBrokenWave Absolutely convinced. Only if it doesn’t appear at least one night in LA will I start to fear for its fate.

And I (Chris) agree with Ax. Bullet/Hands/Pride sounds a bit choppy for sure. Far from seemless

 via U2gigs (Chris)

20th is With Or Without You #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

I (Ax) think Bullet/Hands snip/Pride is a combo that makes thematic sense, but doesn’t succeed sonically. #U2ieTour #U2

Beautiful Day with the I Remember You snippet is exactly that… beautiful. #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

To go back a song, I feel like Hands/Pride CAN work in theory. Just not really after Bullet. Such an odd pairing.

 via U2gigs (Chris)

You can tell #Bono is still chuffed about #YesIreland, and for good reason. #U2ieTour

 via Twitter Web Client

19th is Beautiful Day, my favorite! #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

@Drea104 I was surprised by how Bullet/OSC seemed to potentially work in that rehearsal clip. Can’t be worse than Bullet/Hands/Pride!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Drea104

Bono references the #YesIreland vote, as well as the Baltimore and Ferguson civil conflicts here in the US. #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

@Drea104 I (Ax) badly want them to try Bullet/Troubles, Bullet/OSC, or restore Bullet/RTSS to the set.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Drea104

@Beckyk1114 I (Chris) love both versions, but the piano version is so beautiful

 via U2gigs (Chris) in reply to Beckyk1114

I’d do just about anything for a full band The Hands That Built America. That intro is a HUGE tease

 via U2gigs (Chris)

@DWilbur3 It’s a Paul Hardcastle song, defined by a distinctive “n-n-n-nineteen” that Bono is mimicking.

My bad on the 11 O’Clock Tick Tock math (I’m a writer!). It has been played 12 times since the Unforgettable Fire Tour, not 13. #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

For what it’s worth, The Ocean’s last KNOWN performance pre-Vertigo was Dec. 15, 1982. Was most likely played at later shows that tour.

 via U2gigs (Chris)

The Ocean famously returned for 28 Vertigo Tour plays in 2005 after not being performed since Dec. 15, 1982 on the War Pre-Tour #U2ieTour.

 via U2gigs (Chris)

11 O’Clock Tick Tock has been played 13 times since 1985 (UF Tour). 1x-JT Tour, 2x-Lovetown, 2x-ATYCLB promo tour, 7x-Elevation #U2ieTour

 via U2gigs (Chris)

Getting ahead of ourselves here, but 11 O’Clock Tick Tock was last played on Aug. 21, 2001. The Ocean’s final play was Dec 9, 2005 #U2ieTour

A reputable fan at the Forum is reporting he heard The Ocean and 11 O’Clock Tick Tock being soundchecked. Can anyone else confirm? #U2ieTour
