June 14th, 2015

@U2Sydney Especially not without the slide solo. It just isn’t right without the solo.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to U2Sydney

@Noodles105 Yeah, Discotheque would fit perfectly early in the 2nd set. Its return is well overdue!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Noodles105

@lambertspest Awesome! Bono’s pulled up many kids and many guitarists over the years, but never a kid who was also a guitarist!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to lambertspest

@lambertspest Yeah lots of people take their kids to U2 shows. Bono sometimes even brings a kid on stage.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to lambertspest

@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…

 via Twitter Web Client

@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.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to U2Sydney

Wow, how about this, the printed set has Volcano rather than Lucifer’s Hands! #U2ieTour #U2 https://twitter.com/U2is…

 via Twitter Web Client

@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.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to u2wanderer

@U2Sydney Haha, Matt may travel to lots of shows, but my (Ax) days of following bands around are largely over.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to U2Sydney

Today’s performance of Out Of Control means it has already been played more on the #U2ieTour than on the whole 360 Tour (7 vs 6 times). #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@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.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to U2Sydney

Well that was quick - here’s a video of the live debut of Lucifer’s Hands tonight: https://youtu.be/QWFUFem… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@ekstewie Yeah might do some things differently now if starting from scratch, but too far gone now!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ekstewie

@thombullock He did sing it at some 1st leg shows.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to thombullock

Here is our mainpage article on Montreal 2 with full setlist and show info: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end of Montreal 2. Thanks so much to @u2wanderer and @mysteriousdays for excellent Mixlr streams tonight! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Snippet of Invisible over end of One. What happened to the Hear Us Coming verse? #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@ekstewie There are always borderline cases like this. I’d be tempted to make different categories but that would lead to further messiness!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ekstewie

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?

 via Twitter Web Client

24. One, dedicated to Win and Regine of Arcade Fire. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono calls Montreal “the loudest crowd I ever heard”. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@ekstewie Because it’s not played separately from Streets, and the organ of the intro plays under most of it.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ekstewie

Snippet of California in Streets. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

23. Mother And Child Reunion snippet leads into Where The Streets Have No Name. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2 @duuuaaaane Yep, he was definitely talking about Crystal Ballroom. I’m guessing a fan had a sign.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2

Now he’s thanking Joe O’Herlihy… moving onto his pre-Streets speech about Amnesty, One Campaign, etc. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

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

 via Twitter Web Client

@cfbuckster Called that at LA 5. ;) If it comes back, I expect it won’t be as encore opener.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to cfbuckster

22. Encore opens with City Of Blinding Lights. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Crowd was in fine voice chanting for an encore. Now the Stephen Hawking video is playing. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

That’s the end of the main set. No Shine Like Stars. :( Check out full set so far here: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@mvdarosa It’s surprising. Only previous album to not be represented on the next tour was when Popmart had no Zooropa songs.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to mvdarosa

@harrykantas Haha! It was rehearsed so I won’t be shocked if it gets a guernsey at some stage.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to harrykantas

21. With Or Without You. This has been a great show so far Bono, now cap it off with SHINE LIKE STARS. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Another snip of Moment Of Surrender, this time in Bad. Lengthy. Wonder if it will be done in full soon? #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@atu2comSherry Ugh no kidding. No counting how much time I’ve spent trying to pick some snips over the years.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to atu2comSherry

@rebecca_vincent No worries! Pictures of the six were shown on screen too.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to rebecca_vincent

@ryannichols7 Funny what just a couple of songs can do.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to ryannichols7

@JereVenencia13 Pretty good strike rate today! Though I never would’ve predicted Lucifer’s Hands!

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JereVenencia13

@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.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to rebecca_vincent

20. BAD!! Back after missing six shows! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Moment Of Surrender snippet at the end of Beautiful Day. This one is unmistakable! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

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!

 via Twitter Web Client

@rebecca_vincent You may be interested to know Bono did passionate shout-out re: Amnesty Int’l in Azerbaijan again tonight.

 via Twitter Web Client

@GarethW2610 I must admit, lingering 360 memories made Drowning Man briefly float through my head…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to GarethW2610

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

 via Twitter Web Client

Mid-Pride, Bono is speaking about Amnesty Int’l being banned from European Games in Azerbaijan. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@Maideneer Hahaha that would’ve been hilarious. It would fit with this Americentric section too, y’know…

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maideneer

The megaphone sounds good in Bullet’s grittiness, but uh Bono it doesn’t quite go with Edge’s chiming notes of Pride… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

18. The Hands That Built America snippet leads to Pride. Bono briefly uses the megaphone again over Pride’s opening notes. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

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

 via Twitter Web Client

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

 via Twitter Web Client

@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)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to neifirst1

I only just noticed that in my excitement I mislabelled Lucifer’s Hands as “Lucifer’s Hand” in announcing its debut. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

adambernatt 20 seconds of Lucifers Hands @u2gigs #U2ieTour @workinggirl73 http://t.co/pjPEZHVdzT

 via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 3:45 AM, Jun 14th, 2015  via Twitter Web Client)

I never expected it either - in fact, I never expected Lucifer’s Hands to ever be played. #U2ieTour #U2 https://twitter.com/ryan…

 via Twitter Web Client

Wow that was fun! Hey @u2wanderer, sounds like you enjoyed Lucifer’s Hands. Yes it did really happen! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Can’t wait to see everyone go even crazier when The Crystal Ballroom makes it’s debut. (Chris)

 via U2gigs (Chris)

Chris popping in from vacation to say HOLY CRAP LUCIFERS HANDS!!! Incredible.

 via U2gigs (Chris)

Oh BTW, in the excitement I missed chance to say guy from crowd brought up to play Edge’s guitar at end of Angel of Harlem. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Wow, Lucifer’s Hands is a complete blindside. Didn’t have a rehearsal/soundcheck report of this. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

HOOOOLY SHIT WHERE DID THIS COME FROM

 via Twitter Web Client

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

 via Twitter Web Client

@JBOXX007 Scroll back a little in our feed, there are two very good Mixlr audio streams.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JBOXX007

What’s next? When Love Comes To Town, missing for 4 shows? Stuck, missing for 5? SweetestThing, missing for 7? Something else? #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

14. Angel of Harlem, back after missing two shows - and another one of my predictions is nailed! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

The woman from crowd is now doing Meerkat filming. “Be careful” he tells her “Larry might bite … Adam might take you home.” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono pulled a woman from the crowd on stage to dance during MWays. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

I am, however, adamant that EBTTRT and MWays should rotate. They fill similar roles & would allow one more rotational slot. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

U2 |LIVE NOW| Live from Montreal. Tune in now… #U2ieTour #meerkat mrk.tv/1GCKOir

 via (retweeted on 3:20 AM, Jun 14th, 2015  via Twitter Web Client)

I seriously can’t believe #U2 abandoned EBTTRT from 9 June 2001 to 30 March 2011. It’s a crowd pleaser. #U2ieTour

 via Twitter Web Client

12. Even Better Than The Real Thing #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@JeffReinhart77 Both the streams by @u2wanderer and @mysteriousdays sound fantastic tonight. A+ effort.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JeffReinhart77

11. The second set begins with Invisible. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Intermission time with The Wanderer on screen. Catch up on the set here: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

The “where is the love?” nod to Love And Peace Or Else is in UTEOTW tonight. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@balski01 It’s an absolute highlight of this tour. I think it and Cedarwood are the best of the new songs.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to balski01

10. “Comfort me! COMFORT ME! COMFORT MEEEE!” Until The End Of The World. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Psalm 23 snippet in Raised By Wolves. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

U2 |LIVE NOW| Stay Tuned… #U2ieTour #meerkat mrk.tv/1SdOqvd

 via (retweeted on 2:52 AM, Jun 14th, 2015  via Twitter Web Client)

I’m sure Bono has told numerous cities they’re sexy! The “heat to North America” part may be true though. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

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

 via Twitter Web Client

@vetriu2 @atu2 Oh I did think I heard something funny near end but thought Bono had just missed a cue. Will have to check after show.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to vetriu2

@vetriu2 @atu2 Was there? I missed it. Which line?

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to vetriu2

Entering the Sex Pistols snip to database, I spoonerised it to Gove Sad The Queen. Might be a joke there for political-minded Brits.

 via Twitter Web Client

Little snippet of Sex Pistols’ God Save The Queen in Vertigo. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@harrykantas Martin Hannett also gave them a big leg up. 11OTT single an obvious advance on U2:3 & Another Day.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to harrykantas

@JackRyder120 The easiest place is on the deluxe version of Boy. Tracks 7-9 on the second disc are U2:3.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JackRyder120

3. Vertigo. Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio snippet at start. Count-in in Spanish tonight (was in French yesterday). #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Bono is giving his speech about surrender, “we come here to surrender to you”, in middle of OOC. “Are you in? ARE YOU IN?” #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@KevinMFeeney @JereVenencia13 Hahaha. It’s like how you can guarantee AIWIY won’t happen at any show I see. Nor will a live debut.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to KevinMFeeney

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.

 via Twitter Web Client

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.

 via Twitter Web Client

2. Out Of Control, back after missing one show. There’s my first setlist prediction nailed! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

Here’s our mainpage article where we will have the full Montreal 2 set in progress: http://www.u2gigs.com/ar… #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@Tee_Hen10 We can hope! Nothing rehearsed yet. Gloria would suit the theme early in the 1st set.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tee_Hen10

@JereVenencia13 I wish I shared your optimism! I doubt it’ll show up before NYC 5 to 8.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to JereVenencia13

@PascalGteD OOC = Out Of Control. My bet is no Crystal Ballroom until NYC or the European leg.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to PascalGteD

My French is almost non-existent, but I think Bono began by yelling “the most beautiful sound in the world” in French. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

1. Second night in Montreal is under way with The Miracle (Of The Usual Opener). #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

People Have The Power is playing in Montreal. Almost showtime! #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

My set predictions tonight: OOC and One return; R&H songs for mid-2nd set, and Bad or AIWIY before WOWY. #U2ieTour #U2

 via Twitter Web Client

@rw90745 @thescreendoor Agreed with both of you. I think MW and EBTTRT should rotate. They fill same role. Would free up a slot.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to rw90745

Welcome to coverage of Montreal 2. Ax here. Two Mixlrs live already: http://mixlr.com/u2wande… and http://mixlr.com/mysteri… #U2ieTour #U2
