What was your favourite 360 moment?
What a tour 360 ended up as. HMTMKMKM! Busker No Line! EBW, North Star, Glastonbury, Stingray, Mercy! SCARLET AND ZOOROPA! Barking dogs!
It wasn’t widely reported at the time, but we even had reports of Wire being rehearsed before they made it to Barcelona. Yay remasters?
Drowning Man! EBTTRT Perfecto Mix! Acoustic Mysterious Ways and SBS! If God Will Send His Angels, and SYCMIOYO into Bad!
Snow Patrol warmed up the crowd, and Ax had a minor meltdown over The Unforgettable Fire. And of course, the rehearsals had us salivating
Breathe, Magnificent, return of Ultraviolet, In a Little While, remixed Crazy Tonight. And all led in by David Bowie and the unreleased Soon
Seven(!!!) years ago today, U2 opened the 360 tour in Barcelona. 22 songs, 4 straight from NLOTH to start. u2gigs.com/show1573.html
My favourite from that night in Barcelona was Ultra Violet youtu.be/9T8oTYhil-Y
7 years ago today we started with HD videos as the 360 tour kicked off in Barcelona. Here is our playlist youtube.com/playlist?list=…
I think that’s enough Brexit for one day… Have Invisible! youtube.com/watch?v=ngXvnq…

.@SVDCRacing Could also be Bono working with him, rather than him with U2
@popmuzikmofo Yes. Skrillex posted it.
In U2 album news..? https://t.co/wsJbF694OW
I know we aren’t political here (except where U2 is concerned), but this for me is the kicker https://t.co/VWpMQ6CPIa
Brits, it isn’t necessarily over… here in Canada, a ’95 referendum ended up 50.5% to 49.5% on Quebec secession. #Euref
Bono was particularly happy with same-sex marriage passing RT @mikedlockwood1: That’s all right then, not 2 gays like I thought it was!
RT @U2Achtung_: What Willie Williams told us about the tour (past and future
.@mikedlockwood1 It’s Larry hugging his son, experience protecting innocence. Can’t say when SOE is out, we don’t know.
(And I got called away in the last ten minutes and missed the goal!)
Wherever they are, I’m sure the boys are downing a few pints after that performance against Italy. Well done Republic of Ireland!
Would you lie to see another podcast from us? What would you like us to discuss?
@u2songs I don’t think they’ve been listed as such by Ax or Matt. Generally if it is part of the studio recording, we don’t list it.
@CBarcaQC The book implies it was Cedarwood-Iris-SFS instead of what became Iris-Cedarwood-SFS
@LookItsMorris Can you elaborate?
Would you like to hear another podcast from us? What topics would you like us to discuss?
@AntonioMbass Its an essay in the book, not a picture
Also neat to see that Cedarwood was ahead of Iris in the set at one point.
Perhaps why it came together so quickly when they debuted it. Still one of the best rotations on the tour I think. Matkin.
Reading the book that comes withe the boxset of Paris, its interesting that U2 were considering WLCTT even before BB King died.
@markpeterboro At least I’ve got Welsh ancestry too, free to cheer for them! Matkin
Played outside of Europe just once since 1985, unbelievably.
“This is a song we haven’t played in a quarter of century!” *Audience roars* youtube.com/watch?v=LLTpEb…
On this day in 1997… U2 and Oasis went drinking and ending up singing along to the radio u2gigs.com/show1873.html
@Naomi_U2Sydney To be honest, I’m not entirely sure. Gut instinct is it started on the Elevation Tour and just evolved bit by bit over time
@Zooropa_U2Trib Is it really? I tweeted it because of the Euro match, I had no idea!
“Maybe just once. Just once? Close your eyes and imagine it’s Jason McActeer!”
I promise I’m leading up to something by tweeting these orchestral covers. Matkin. youtube.com/watch?v=-c6IH6…
iainlee Jo Cox worked for Oxfam and campaigned against slavery. She was a mum. A wife. She held regular surgeries. I just don’t get this world.
Yes that was a month old, but still neat to see!
@U2kingdom I don’t know any sorry.
Any Downton Abbey fans in the house? youtube.com/watch?v=sekJbw…
Duh-duh-duh-duh-tish dum dum dadadum dum dadadum dum duh-duh-duh-duh-tish dum dum dadadum dadadum dada-
Making drum noises is fun. Matkin.
@lukas_venencia None whatsoever
@lukas_venencia That’s right. We only list performances that have been released in a purchaseable format.
With this release, the most performed songs without an official release are once again Wire (81), Wild Horses (79), and Rejoice (72) #U2
And that includes the bonus tracks in the deluxe and Blu-ray editions #U2
@markpeterboro Perhaps No Line on the Horizon for Scotland? :-P
Lots of others in the same boat it seems! Not sure cancelling and getting elsewhere is worth it right now. Preorder was $120 CDN, now $200
Huh. Even though I (Matkin) pre-ordered the #U2 boxset the hour it was announced, Amazon Canada can’t deliver it until mid-July at earliest
This is the best thing I’ve seen today. U2’s two youngest fans rock out Raised By Wolves youtube.com/watch?v=g0j8Zr…
@johnmbyrne01 Lucky. Still waiting here!
@markopronto All of them except the two Glasgow shows used the same recording. For whatever reason, Glasgow were both sung live
@AntonioMbass There was talk at the time it may have been for the HBO documentary that never showed up. May have decided here instead
@AntonioMbass Not to our knowledge. We only list the two Glasgow shows with live vocals. Back to pre-recorded after that.
Meanwhile, at U2Gigs tertiary HQ we’re still waiting for a shipping notification for our copy. Was expecting it today for Friday delivery
Interesting that The Fly on the Paris DVD shows live vocals. Likely from Glasgow, will have to match for our live list
fakebono Larry just proposed a new band advertising slogan: “Make U2 great again.” I think he was joking.
@U2ThreeChords Yes. If OS1 doesn’t count as U2 then neither should NLOTH
@Copenhagentribe yes, MBA.
@U2_ultraviolet I’ll try to do a mixlr. I hope the VF network in there is better this time :)
@heyplatzman I really hope so :)
I’m at Muse concert in Berlin today. I’ve seen them 7 times opening for U2 in 2011 but this is my first full concert.
