To be brutally honest, I (Matkin) think it’s better than the original. Sorry October fans!
GlennyRodge Teacher: How many letters in the alphabet?
Bono: With or without u?
Teacher: Get out.
@harrykantas Is it playing tricks again?
Seething because it was the song that made me a U2 fan; I so badly wanted to be there to hear it!
But I was seething when this popped out. I even took a special sign to Toronto for it hoping it would be done! youtube.com/watch?v=LLTpEb…
I enjoyed hearing MD again. Two probs though: 1) Not an encore opener 2) New chorus felt unfinished youtube.com/watch?v=mcqORU…
Sometimes I like to pretend I know what the hell I’m talking about
It’s often thought of as an American holiday, but the trivia buffs out there may be interested to know it is actually older in Canada!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! Matkin
Looks like the Texas Rangers really dropped the ball on that last play!
EveryBrokenWave Donald Trump comes from a reality where U2 never wrote Seconds

PS: Ax, you are still very very bad at checking your email!
Most recent tweet and retweet from Matkin.
Seriously? THIS is what is too much for you?
@eddiequinones86 Thanks! It’s a feature we do like; helps to show how some things change and some things stay the same =)
@eddiequinones86 Hi Eddie, that’s actually deliberate. The IE review links to the Turin concert, so the review is automatically linked back
pappy90 I am LOVING the people pissed at Bono & U2 for being political. do you even know the band? They broadcast the Bosnian War at their 90s shows
I (Ax) will get back to work and leave Matkin to his madness. Cheers folks, see you next time, whenever that is.
My now deleted tweet about Bono busting out Can’t Touch This was, of course, filled with lyrics for the Chaa-Chaa Slide instead. Oops?
@AntonioMbass Hahaha ooops.
Well that is it for U2. Time for the afterparty with MC Hammer and will-dot-i-dot-am. Possible Bono will join one of them for a song
That would appear to be the actual end. I (Ax) am surprised neither iHeart nor this show got Out Of Control. #Dreamfest
Bono intros 40, referring to band’s anniversary: “It’s kinda like a fortieth birthday song.” #Dreamfest
OH YES HERE WE GO IT’S 40. #Dreamfest
Songs Ax says better than Streets live: Bad, One Tree Hill, 11 O’clock TickTock, Fly, UTEOTW, A Sort of Homecoming, Elec Co. #myshitopinions
I (Ax) am going to be controversial and say Bad wipes the floor with Streets. twitter.com/SilRigote/stat…
Unlike Matkin, I (Ax) was paying attention. There was a bit of a “la la la” but nothing quite enough to be a snip i… twitter.com/i/web/status/7…
Here’s With Or Without You, the song on the printed set for iHeart that missed out. #Dreamfest
Bono takes another shot at Trump? “This community is about giving away billions, not making it.”
Eleven songs in and we finally get a song from the nineties. #Dreamfest
Glad that I (Matkin) am not the only one with backend troubles!
@MarkCDarwin Ha, maybe I (Ax) will count that in two decades after I finally finish Hear Us Coming for One.
I (Ax) am having tech difficulties w/ the site backend adding the snips for Bullet, so those won’t be displayed until Matthias can fix.
What a rant. That was a seriously long Bullet as a result. #Dreamfest
atu2 What’s the over/under on a Trump tweet coming with comments about Bono? I say less than an hour from now (sherry)
RT @SilRigote: YES!!!! ALL the Brazilians
Geez I (Ax) wish U2 were doing a full tour right now. It’d be proper political and fiery like in the old days.
Bono tells Trump: “you’re fired!” #Dreamfest
Bono going for it w/ mocking “convo” w/ Trump. “Good people are not going to stay silent while you run off w/ the American dream” #Dreamfest
“A candidate comes up to me, his face red like a rose on a thorn bush.” You mean orange, Bono. #Dreamfest
@metsfanmx I’d put it at 0.5%
@sb_wreeldeal I find its sentimentality to be sickly sweet, and the lyrics ham-fisted.
@sb_wreeldeal How do you shift gears that badly?!
@sb_wreeldeal I (Ax) still can’t believe U2 went from writing Mofo to writing Stuck in the space of 3 years.
This is character assassination, Matkin! On the other hand, U2 playing this blather is good for my productivity at… twitter.com/i/web/status/7…
“The goal is soul” Bono shouts at the beginning. He said it quite often during BD on Elevation, but as far as I know it isn’t a snippet
When the rain of snippets finally arrives, it pours. twitter.com/harbinger384/s…
RT @SilRigote: OMG!!!! This California intro. Ok, now I’m in tears
Blackbird snippet closes Beautiful Day. #Dreamfest
Zooropa snippet in BDay! “Dream up the world you want to live in, dream out loud”. #Dreamfest
@atu2comSherry Just about the length of U2 Go Home, perfect!
Bono band intros in IWF. “On the drums the man who started this show, Larry Mullen Jr!” #Dreamfest
Also, can I (Ax) promote my book again? Yes? Thanks. This has kept me busy lately, hope some of you may like it: otago.ac.nz/press/books/ot…
Matkin will be your main host today because I’m at work, but I’ll keep the main page humming and chime in every now and then.
U2 should be on any time soon… #Dreamfest
@atu2 And by the same guy who made George Bush sing Sunday Bloody Sunday!
On an unrelated note to tonight’s concert, I just found this amazing cover of 11 O’Clock Tick Tock. Wow. youtube.com/watch?v=Gtgvlc…
@u2wanderer How could you! Matkin gets confused enough as it is!
Well, it’s late so Matkin is now off to bed. Goodnight you all, U2 tomorrow!
@thombullock This Bullet is about Trump
So… not entirely sure if I should do a write-up for a one-off concert rehearsal or leave it be. Ax is more used to these things (Help!)
If the boys are taking pictures with fans, I’m going to hazard a guess that soundcheck for today is over and they won’t be back on later
I just realized I’ve been using the wrong hashtag all this. Now I KNOW I’m bonkers! #DreamFESTnotDreamFORCE
Last RT was for those paying attention to the soundcheck and curious about the VP debates in America!
RT @burningbusy: These American debates just remind me of the song “Drunk Chicken” by U2, with that poem by Allen Ginsberg.
Thanks to everyone for confirming that I am indeed completely bonkers; just a delay on that scope between audio and video
@JeffReinhart77 Might be a break to discuss the set, what is working and what needs work
@JeffReinhart77 None yet, though One was apparently rehearsed earlier.
Not all Bono’s vocals were live; possibly resting voice still. Can see during this Periscope of Bullet periscope.tv/w/1DXGyLqZBpZKM
@JeffReinhart77 Might be just for now; I think they have more time if they want to use it.
@JereVenencia13 Yep. Piano is just easier than saying Elev style, Vert style, 360 style, or IE style!
@U2_News Yep, just meant it was on piano instead of guitar
So we have One, Angel of Harlem, Stuck (piano), EBW (piano), Bullet, BD, Hands snip into Pride, Streets, and California confirmed so far
Seems they are a bit unhappy with Streets; they keep starting and restarting varying aspects of the intro. #Dreamforce
