South American Rehearsals- POTENTIAL SPOILERS
« on: March 23, 2011, 04:45:21 PM »
U2chile and some associates are reporting the first soundchecks from South America

I want to heavily stress that this is the crew soundchecking, NOT the band, and the crew have been known in the past to soundcheck a VAST number of songs never played or even rehearsed by the band, so I'd very much refrain from getting your hopes up- although there's only one real surprise so far anyway. Nevertheless, I decided to start a thread since we will presumably have some band rehearsals soon!

Anyway, they list Pride, Elevation, New Year's Day, Desire, City of Blinding Lights, Where The Streets Have No Name, Miracle Drug
There also seems to be some confusion about Fez or Zooropa which is almost certainly just the mixed COBL intro from Cape Town.

Hopefully we'll have a real rehearsal with the band soon- and potentially some news!

23rd March - All instrumental, possibly/probably tech rehearsals
Pride (In The Name Of Love)
Elevation
New Year's Day
Desire

Miracle Drug instead of IALW. Stop singing about space and play something different.

Although why aren't they rehearsing Breathe, NLOTH, White As Snow.

Oh God please don't let them play Miracle Drug. Being subjected to UTEOTW is bad enough.

...Yet another EBTTRT rehearsal? I swear, this song BETTER appear! It was rehearsed in Barcelona, then it looked like they were going to play it in Glastonbury last year, THEN there were the rehearsals in Europe last year... they better play it this time!

The new song thing is also interesting, although that seems quite shaky!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but maybe Miracle Drug could be the song in relation to Japan?

Before anyone gets excited about the new song, the person who reported that is strongly cautioning that it may well have been an old song in an acoustic form he was unfamiliar with - it was definitely acoustic and definitely NOT EBW or North Star.

The so-called 'new song' was probably something from Pop.

You can't really blame any of the younger fans for being unfamiliar with it.
