@KevinMFeeney Oh it’s totally become the Mercy of SOI. I don’t like its concept. But i’d like to hear the band give it a go.
So, this has happened in Montreal today. https://twitter.com/Tali…
@Lunnzies Any setlist without The Fly needs more of The Fly.
Here’s another copy of the Montreal 3 setlist, also showing Ordinary Love on the printed set and Desire not. https://twitter.com/ques…
@sb_wreeldeal I’m still baffled it was done at just 1 of 7 Californian gigs!
Bono’s been really praising Canada tonight. Shouts “are you ready to lead the world! … the world needs more Canadas!” over Streets’ intro.
@DerBFreund Good question. I can’t think of other instances of the same song being snippeted three times in one show.
@Drea104 Every show - EVERY SHOW - I start to get amped for it and then… disappointment. (I LOST IT when he did it at Dublin 3, 2009).
@Hoosier2012 Yeah it was done at LA 5.
@JeffReinhart77 Four total, but three on tour (Van 1, LA 5, tonight) and one at the Vancouver dress rehearsal.
@litofpigs That’s taped vocals of Lykke Li.
I (Ax) try not to make this feed any more political than Bono does, but I lecture on genocide and Bashir needs to face justice re: Darfur.
I was expecting Bono to rant in Pride about this travesty, South Africa’s failure to arrest Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir: http://www.nytimes.com/2…
@atu2 I was hoping he might rage against the South African govt not arresting Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir for extradition to ICC.
@AntonioMbass Yeah it was last done at first Denver show.
@atu2comSherry He could even still do it, but leaves a couple of seconds of silence instead. Silence? That’s not the loudmouth Bono we know!
@ryannichols7 Normally I’d be disappointed if they skipped a song, but they can skip right over that one.
@sb_wreeldeal I’m surprised nobody’s ever said “I can play Desire!” and then busted out something rare instead.
@KarenJPerras No, pretty sure different guy.
@_aihsila It’s clearly meant to be some sort of metaphor, but it comes across all wrong to me.
@_aihsila Yeah I’m not entirely cool with that…
@_aihsila I’m surprised by how divided opinion seems to be about Iris live. People either love it or want it dropped, little middle ground.
@ericLC89 I’m surprised it only got to open one show on 360. It was much more than opener than Breathe!
@atu2 Ha, early in the tour our database kept deleting Iris during set updates. IWF/Cedarwood would actually be a good combo.
@atu2 Do you know something we don’t about Iris being skipped? ;)
@dontgoslideaway I can’t believe they’ve done 41 songs this past month, but 19 are permanent - the rest fight for 4-5 spots.
@heidiarday I agree it’s a good opener for this tour, but I wouldn’t rate it one of their best openers ever.
@shanta8888 That would be great in combination with Iris, anywhere in the set.
@ryannichols7 I’m honestly expecting it to be replaced by Bad or AIWIY!
@ryannichols7 I really hope Ordinary Love doesn’t become too much of a regular. Talk about a song going in one ear and right out the other.
@RaulCamarena Yeah I’m surprised that hasn’t even been rehearsed.
@jorgefilipe Crystal Ballroom could be a cool opener to the 2nd set.
@ryannichols7 Now, now, we know Troubles has been skipped as often as it’s been played. ;)
Happy 16th of June everybody! Think we’ll get a Breathe snippet tonight? I (Chris) would love to see it. My favorite off No Line. #U2ieTour
