@EveryBrokenWave Damn! Ah well, Europe!
@TylerBronn You have NO IDEA how happy this makes me (Ax)!
#U2ieTour halftime for the dates announced so far. It’s about time to start for me (Matt) soon.
@WTSHNN Where would we be without people who pay attention to the minutiae! (It’s how I keep myself in a job…)
@KevinMFeeney I’m putting money on 40 tomorrow. Perhaps Bad? Only done at 1/7 so far!
@WTSHNN Thanks. I’ve revised the write-up so hope it’s an accurate reflection now!
@WTSHNN Thanks. Was the firefighter on stage, or just handed the mic too?
@Cloverground Crap I can’t read, let’s do that again…
@KevinMFeeney Surely, SURELY at least one of Cali or Crystal Ballroom will be done.
@KevinMFeeney Haha. Volcano actually seems to be slightly off the boil after becoming semi-frequent for a while.
@jpstarkey Well yeah, but you know what I mean. I should’ve probably said “with the restart”.
@carynrose Thanks for the heads-up!
@KevinMFeeney Or at least bet that if the rotations were repeats, they wouldn’t be repeats of songs already done twice!
@KevinMFeeney Haha! I was baffled when Elev began and even moreso with OLove. I would’ve bet money on at least 1 song not done yet in NYC.
@KevinMFeeney Yeah that was unusual. I’d like to see a printed setlist.
@U2start MLK is a weird case. And for whatever reason that just brought to mind that weird night they did MLK/11OTT on the JT Tour.
@U2start I wouldn’t say Hands is distinct from the following song - it’s clearly sung just to give a lead-in.
@U2start Hah. four lines - of which only one is from the song - definitely is only a snippet!
@EmpirePix I remember fully expecting it to be played or at least snippeted in ’05 during the MSG residency then. Surprised it wasn’t.
@EmpirePix I’m not, honestly. They haven’t touched it since end of Elevation in Dec ’01. Not even a snippet!
@AdrienneQW I didn’t catch the Burning Down The House snippet - will have to check later.
@LarlarGamingYT I’m wondering if Party Girl will get an airing - it often does on such occasions…
@LarlarGamingYT Yeah I definitely expected something different tonight.
@LarlarGamingYT Ah thanks, glad somebody caught that! (Perhaps shows what I think of it… Chris is probably going to kill me…)
She was saying that nobody else stopped to help, but she did because she’s from Virginia not NYC. https://twitter.com/Ever…
@KristinLones Ah I’ve been trying to make out the snippets at the end of UTEOTW! I’ll check that when I have a chance after show.
@EveryBrokenWave I reckon it’s dull both studio and live. Wouldn’t miss it if it were dropped, but being latest single it’s going nowhere.
@markjoelcaplin I’d quite happily make that permanent too. I’ll trade say Song For Someone and MWays for Electric Co and Gloria every night.
@EveryBrokenWave We could tag-team tomorrow like old times if you want? NYC 8 should be a bit of a party anyway.
@EveryBrokenWave Well if you’d given me a heads-up preshow…!
Bono NYC joke: “Englishman flies to NYC and catches a taxi. Says should I ask to be taken to Empire State Building or go fuck myself?” #U2
@cqleonardo Yeah I’m actually kind of surprised he hasn’t done a line from it in any of these speeches. Prob forgotten it exists!
@EveryBrokenWave Whichever works, haha! Sil and Aingeal sound good right now.
@LarlarGamingYT Ooh cheers!
Well this is an interesting tease! https://twitter.com/U2BR…
@EveryBrokenWave I’ve added the set to the site and am writing it up now!
@jatgolf I Threw a Brick into A Day Without Me would be immense. One of their best combos. Would love to see it given another go.
@sirens_wail It’s still a bummer they didn’t do Lemon on Vertigo’s third leg after spending some time rehearsing it.
@u2_se I wouldn’t mind it at the shows I’ll see in Stockholm :)
@markpeterboro Shame we can’t retroactively alter what U2 played to suit the chart. Though if we could do that ASOH would be in every set ;)
@markpeterboro Uhoh, looks like 40 rather than One is marked for NYC6…
@EveryBrokenWave Honestly I’ve thought of discarding those repeats. But I thought the SATS repeats were those that made it to solo?
@EveryBrokenWave My rule is basically “if at least half the song played, list twice”. They barely got past the first line tonight!
@EveryBrokenWave Aha there we go, it should be visible now!
@EveryBrokenWave OK that’s weird, I actually expanded that note ages ago on the backend and it appears there but not on the live site…
@jenm_c1 His voice seemed pretty done by the end of the show. One became rather shambolic really!
@KevinMFeeney Back in those days I had a bloody good memory. Right now I probably can’t tell you where I put my keys or diary!
@KevinMFeeney So do I… hence I ended up doing this! I remember being at high school scrolling through what became U2gigs whenever I could.
@KevinMFeeney I may have to work that into today’s article - but after lunch, because I am starving!
@KevinMFeeney Aha, good detective work! I know the stats tour-by-tour but hadn’t checked leg-by-leg.
@KevinMFeeney I think we’ve blown past it already. It beats whole tours until ZooTV!
@JesseBasi Yeah, just Hear Us Coming. I will add it to the database one day (I promise!) to sit alongside Shine Like Stars.
Well this is falling apart. Bono’s asking Edge to hold on… now he’s trying to direct crowd and band, song come to a total stop. #U2ieTour
@creative_type Yeah I wouldn’t mind hearing Edge give it a go.
@Toonamette Every year at the uni I work at, I lecture on the Rwandan genocide. It’s… an intense gig, let me tell you that much.
@creative_type No, they use Lykke Li’s studio vocals over the PA.
@Maideneer Hah I wish.
@EveryBrokenWave No I didn’t! In fact I recall an elaborate theory involving Stockholm, Berlin, and Barcelona shows.
@initapplette Agreed. Those Vertigo Tour versions were dismal. I never expected it to come back so strongly.
I thought that was an intense version of Bullet tonight. It’s sounded very good after having 360 off. Some others may benefit from a rest…
@EveryBrokenWave Well it’s a poor transition to begin with. That at least tried to thread them together.
@EveryBrokenWave What I wouldn’t give for Beach Sequence/NYD. I’d even sit through Ordinary Love/Stuck/IALW for that!
