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…
