@U2Sydney Especially not without the slide solo. It just isn’t right without the solo.
@Noodles105 Yeah, Discotheque would fit perfectly early in the 2nd set. Its return is well overdue!
@lambertspest Awesome! Bono’s pulled up many kids and many guitarists over the years, but never a kid who was also a guitarist!
@lambertspest Yeah lots of people take their kids to U2 shows. Bono sometimes even brings a kid on stage.
@lambertspest That is still yet to be confirmed, unfortunately.
Sounds like the band are enjoying themselves in Montreal after tonight’s fun at the Bell Centre. https://twitter.com/DrSh…
@U2Sydney Haha, while I did it when I was a silly 19 year old. Though I very nearly travelled to Sydney for more Neil Finn shows last month.
@u2wanderer Oh yeah, very true, and I’ve called out that lyric as an old activist cliche, but now it’s obv a ref to Invisible as well.
@U2Sydney Haha, Matt may travel to lots of shows, but my (Ax) days of following bands around are largely over.
@U2Sydney Here’s hoping they keep the arena shows when they come down to Australia… though 4+ gigs at Rod Laver will hurt my wallet.
@ekstewie Yeah might do some things differently now if starting from scratch, but too far gone now!
@thombullock He did sing it at some 1st leg shows.
@ekstewie There are always borderline cases like this. I’d be tempted to make different categories but that would lead to further messiness!
Somebody should compile a list of all crowds Bono has claimed to be the loudest he’s ever heard. Every city U2 have played in Latin America?
@ekstewie Because it’s not played separately from Streets, and the organ of the intro plays under most of it.
Bono’s talking to someone in the crowd. “We’re not playing that … we’ll get to it.” Sounds like he was referring to Crystal Ballroom! #U2
@cfbuckster Called that at LA 5. ;) If it comes back, I expect it won’t be as encore opener.
@mvdarosa It’s surprising. Only previous album to not be represented on the next tour was when Popmart had no Zooropa songs.
@harrykantas Haha! It was rehearsed so I won’t be shocked if it gets a guernsey at some stage.
@atu2comSherry Ugh no kidding. No counting how much time I’ve spent trying to pick some snips over the years.
@rebecca_vincent No worries! Pictures of the six were shown on screen too.
@ryannichols7 Funny what just a couple of songs can do.
@JereVenencia13 Pretty good strike rate today! Though I never would’ve predicted Lucifer’s Hands!
@rebecca_vincent Sorry didn’t get full text but he said he would hold AZ’s Pres responsible if anything happened to 6 prisoners. Named them.
OK Bono, kindly enunciate and get the lyrics right when you do a snippet at the end of BDay tonight to save us all last night’s confusion!
@rebecca_vincent You may be interested to know Bono did passionate shout-out re: Amnesty Int’l in Azerbaijan again tonight.
@GarethW2610 I must admit, lingering 360 memories made Drowning Man briefly float through my head…
Bono names 6 members of Amnesty Int’l who’ve been imprisoned. Tells Azerbaijan pres he will hold him responsible if anything happens to them
@Maideneer Hahaha that would’ve been hilarious. It would fit with this Americentric section too, y’know…
Bono again introduced the Hands snippet with “don’t shoot, I’m a Canadian … America is not a country, it’s an idea, a French idea”. #U2
Must admit, when Bono said “we’ve never played this”, I figured he meant “a song we haven’t played in two or three years”. /cynical-Ax #U2
@neifirst1 He has told fans it’s coming. But he said that about Mofo on the third leg of Vertigo too. (I, Ax, have a long and bitter memory)
Can’t wait to see everyone go even crazier when The Crystal Ballroom makes it’s debut. (Chris)
Chris popping in from vacation to say HOLY CRAP LUCIFERS HANDS!!! Incredible.
HOOOOLY SHIT WHERE DID THIS COME FROM
15. “We want to do something that we’ve never played before… if it goes wrong, blame it on The Edge.” LUCIFER’S HAND LIVE DEBUT #U2ieTour
@JBOXX007 Scroll back a little in our feed, there are two very good Mixlr audio streams.
@balski01 It’s an absolute highlight of this tour. I think it and Cedarwood are the best of the new songs.
After IWF, Bono addressing crowd in French & English. Claims he’s never told any other city they’re sexy & bring heat to North America. #U2
Entering the Sex Pistols snip to database, I spoonerised it to Gove Sad The Queen. Might be a joke there for political-minded Brits.
@harrykantas Martin Hannett also gave them a big leg up. 11OTT single an obvious advance on U2:3 & Another Day.
@JackRyder120 The easiest place is on the deluxe version of Boy. Tracks 7-9 on the second disc are U2:3.
OOC is still a good song on U2:3, of course, but it could be recorded by any 2nd tier post-punk band. On Boy, it’s something special.
How many of you have listened to U2:3 version of OOC lately? Amazing how much it improved by Boy. Also, Edge loooved his flanger in ’79.
@Tee_Hen10 We can hope! Nothing rehearsed yet. Gloria would suit the theme early in the 1st set.
@JereVenencia13 I wish I shared your optimism! I doubt it’ll show up before NYC 5 to 8.
@PascalGteD OOC = Out Of Control. My bet is no Crystal Ballroom until NYC or the European leg.
