@U2Fametal No, not doing Paris.
I’ve got two of these AB #7 shirts back then and will wear one tomorrow. Finally Ax will have both eyes on U2 show coverage again ;-) Matt
@sethckal Yes, pocket cameras will be fine.
Clearly Ax will not be sleeping tonight
@zaharadessert As a Kiwi in Melbourne, I don’t even know what to do with myself right now!! Run down Sydney Road waving a silver fern flag?
@adammajorcsik Are we up with the sun? And still holding on?
@pedromac79 yep :-)
@U2Fametal not for us
@madfl3a thank you :-) Still a bit redundant filming last night. We could have planned this better to have all songs ;-)
@steve9308 For me it was a bit distant and not as loud as GA. But it’s ok since I only had 2x seats this tour :)
@coleymedazza Sometimes you feel like checking out?
@thom2805 Loks like you need to do a few more concerts. But it’s a bit rare now …
@coleymedazza it’s easier to film when sitting and it was a high seat (4th level) … not my favorite place to be up somewhere ;-)
Since we did so many videos today I will not post them all here. They’re on our channels and Ax will do an article later. Matt
@coleymedazza But I was sitting nearly all the time as well today. But I was row A so nobody cared.
@thom2805 I haven’t seen it quite a few years so a nice surprise for me.
@coleymedazza You did it all right :-)
I know the sound quality of the mixlr was not as good as from GA. Bad sound in the high seats but I should have the important songs on video
The next show’s on the other side of Rugby World Cup grand final. If I (Ax) don’t return, I had a heart attack. GO THE MIGHTY ALL BLACKS!!!!
@ryannichols7 Ten bucks on Invisible or People Have The Power over end of One.
So there’s the snippet record - 19 now. (Equal on 18 if don’t count Shine Like Stars, but there’s an unidentified snip to ID after Desire)
@KevinMFeeney At least they never tried BDay/Bullet: “Beautiful day! Don’t let it get away! Away! AWWWAAAAYYYY! IN THE HOWLING WIND!”
@KevinMFeeney MDrug was a weird choice to revive in the first place. And let’s not forget all those One Step Closer rehearsals…
@KevinMFeeney Oh god I’d all but erased memory of that awful COBL/Bullet transition.
@KevinMFeeney I miss when the opening song of the encore was rotational… sigh. MDrug didn’t work but others would!
@EveryBrokenWave Yep, that’s my expectation too. Hopefully this is one of those nights he does not one but two in BDay.
@AnitaHartgers So is Ax; he memorized the entire database!
@CBarcaSTJ That’s awesome!
@ryannichols7 Don’t get why Angel Of Harlem has got preference over AIWIY. Both are good to get guitarists up and surely AIWIY better known!
@CBarcaSTJ Oh really? I’ll have to check that! And how’s it going man?
I (Ax) will hold off on adding the post-Desire snippet until after the show when I can listen back to confirm if it was “Clair” or not.
@rendigryce Well, I guess you have now by Twitter! :-P
Bono just snippeted something at the end of Desire to Claire… I think it was Gilbert O’Sullivan’s Clair, judging by Bono’s remarks.
I suppose if Matkin were still on lead duties MWays would be “Ways of Mystery”.
I don’t dream, not as such
I don’t even think about how I rob myself of sleep to cover these shows
…doesn’t quite fit the meter
I (Ax) love these London gigs - they fall at a far more sensible time in Melbourne. It’s already almost 8:30am!
Hah, so for once it was me that wasn’t paying attention!
If Matkin had paid attention either to this Twitter stream around Iris or to his emails, he’d know I (Ax) am here - I am not invisible.
@BeatrizFaillace Nope, just reminiscing
Matkin was wondering where I (Ax) had got to - and here I am! Very keen to see what rotates into the set for the E stage.
@DutchU2Fan Think it was Milan, but don’t recall 100%
@atu2 It’s the only Oasis song I know apart from Wonderwall
@ryannichols7 We can dream
I wish Ax was here again.
fakebono Edge just showed me a tweeter photo of some punter in a meerkat suit.
@JeffReinhart77 Two night one songs, a night two song, and a new (for this leg) song
@baz_del I’m in the seats today
Less than 60 minutes and I’m live herhttp://mixlr.com/u2gigsYo #U2ieTour
@sethckal I think at 3pm
