one other is not an argument against them being rarities/rarely played. It’s just you being cranky.

Many, many thanks to @mrsmullenjr for her Mixlr and to Jim L. for his Periscope feed tonight. Much appreciation to… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

The shortest of the tour SO FAR you mean #U2eiTour twitter.com/u2gigs/status/…

 via TweetDeck

So from an opening night high of 27 songs we have gradually worked down to 24. Oh dear.

 via TweetDeck

That’s the end of the show. 24 songs, the shortest of the tour. #U2eiTour

@AntonioMbass I thought it was J. Swallo..?

 via TweetDeck in reply to u2gigs

@AntonioMbass Just don’t throw it through J. Swallow’s window, he won’t like that.

(Had to get J. Swallow in here somehow.)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AntonioMbass

@marcuzzo27 No-one knows yet. There is vague talk of an Australia and Asia leg in early 2019, but no good rumours.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to marcuzzo27

@PhilSounds Bono did acknowledge Buffett’s wife during BDay, so good chance.

@AustenJo Probably on one of the Periscope feeds. I was using the Mixlr audio at that point though.

Did I catch Bono singing Women of the World again as I switched streams or was it my imagination?

 via TweetDeck

It’s encore break time now. If it’s the usual 3-song encore, this will be the shortest show of the tour. #U2eiTour

I swear more effects are added to the beginning of COBL every night. #U2eiTour

 via TweetDeck

Bono leading the crowd in the “la la la la” bit in the middle of American Soul. #U2eiTour

 via Twitter Web Client

@Forestmoss Yeah I’m sure hoping that there’s an extra song in the encore, or this is going to be the shortest set of the tour so far.

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to Forestmoss

20. American Soul. It’s megaphone time again. Bono shouts thanks to the crowd through it at the end of GOO Your Own Way. #U2eiTour

@johnlaurenti “U2 do” meant “U2 do want a storyline”, not that they vary it up.

They’re not that sort of band and never have been.

@NoTruthButTruth @Forestmoss The quote being referred to is from the band introduction in Desire, before Bono transforms into Macphisto.

16. The Best Thing. Over the intro, Bono seems to be reciting a kind of message to his wife back home. #U2eiTour

@AntonioMbass You’re meant to be studying for your mid-tour test. ;)

 via Twitter Web Client in reply to AntonioMbass

Did Larry mess up the opening drums of Desire, or was that a glitch in the Mixlr feed? #U2eiTour

 via Twitter Web Client

14. Desire, preceded with the usual speech asking “what’s the point of innocence when experience is so much more fun?” #U2eiTour

 via Twitter Web Client

Totally random: I had NO IDEA that MLK was once snippeted in Staring at the Sun #U2eiTour

 via TweetDeck

I know this feeling, especially when Bono sings a new snippet that I don’t recognise straight away. twitter.com/atu2/status/99…

The end of Vertigo has a snippet of Jean Genie. #U2eiTour

@atu2 @cqleonardo Thanks for clearing it up, my music knowledge is limited outside of U2! :-)

Bono: “anyone in the crowd speak some Spanish? Because there sure as hell isn’t anyone in the band! Uno, dos, tres, catorce!” #U2eiTour

Think I heard a “Words” snippet there, memories of 2015! #U2eiTour
