Were they rehearsing When Love Comes To Town, Angel of Harlem (yes, definitely they were!  :)) and Electric Co before one of Montreal shows for the Apollo show on June 11?

Saw some tweets from U2 fan site staff saying they won tickets.  I wonder how "random" the contest really was.

I know of 2 people who won tickets randomly through the U2.com giveaway.  Friends of my work colleagues.  No connection to U2 other than being fans.

There's a logical correlation

Being hardcore enough to run a fan site -> Being hardcore enough to put in the required effort to be competitive in trying to win the tix

No conspiracy needed

Zoo TV OB Bono sang almost the whole thing (Love Comes to Town) himself. I can hear somebody else sing the title words just once but I don't know who it is. It sounds like he stuck the mic in front of one of the other guys for a few seconds. Like maybe Adam, dunno.

EDIT: In the interest of research, I watched it (never did before):

1) I was right, he stuck the mic in front of Adam for that line!
2) I did not realize, but Edge sang the Crucify verse (also initiated by Bono sticking the mic in front of him). It was sung in a different way but I always assumed it was Bono just mixing up the singing style. Duh.
3) Bono plays guitar for about 1/3 of the song before abandoning it, which happened often, and which isn't even noticable.
