The question now is, will this stuff be part of the setlist, or is it for a recording of live tracks for the achtung baby remaster?
Remember last month they were in the Hansa studio rehearsing a lot of achtung rarities, including so cruel... and apparently what they're rehearsing now is being filmed by the 'it might get loud' director...

rehearsal report:

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Love Is Blindness
The Fly (for the 5th time)
Even Better Than The Real Thing
The Fly
One
Blowin' In The Wind - Where The Streets Have No Name
Even Better Than The Real Thing
The Fly
Magnificent
Mysterious Ways
Until The End Of The World
Elevation

It looks like they might be rehearsing The Fly in I Will Follow's place maybe?  Or maybe Love Is Blindness in With or Without You's position?

I know the fly has been played many times before, but on every tour it's had a unique identity and sound, so i'm very interested to see what it will be like next - even if it's only for the remaster (however the numerous rehearsals suggest to me they might play it live).
And yeah, Hearing love is blindness would be great too - still holding out for acrobat though  ;D

I can see The Fly definitley taking a spot in the 360 setlist, but I'm not so sure about Love Is Blindness. Everytime it's been played, it has been the closer, and I don't see the boys cutting Moment of Surrender

Oh my God :o

I'm seriously doubting Love Is Blindness gets in the set but THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME. But please don't replace WOWY with it. Yet.

The Fly would be epic...

My guess is that the band will be playing these songs live in the theatre and filming the performances for the documentary (and there will be band commentary interspersed throughout). If they were just rehearsing for Glasto there'd be no film crew, and if they were just recording audio for the AB remaster, they wouldn't need a theatre.

Is Martin Scorsese directing?

No, Julie Taymor.

The filming might be for their Glasto appearance, where they might end up pushing Achtung Baby material for the remaster (of course the US is a major market, so it's logical to see them play more AB stuff on the final leg), and maybe they are doing a TV special for that occasion.

It is sorta bugging me (aside from being positively awesome), that R.E.M. recorded live versions of songs off their latest album inside Hansa Studios. I kinda hoped U2 would revisit Hansa with exactly that purpose.

Yeah I would think Hansa would be a logical move to rerecord stuff but maybe their tour schedule is getting in the way so they chose an location on the road.

Then again, they were spotted in Berlin. Who knows?

Looking forward to the remaster either way.
