We're told that it was taped because they're not certain if the weather will be good enough to do it again tomorrow. If it is good enough, they'll do a different song (probably OL). If not, they got something on film that can be used if they so choose.

I see, I didn't really take that into account because I thought the whole show including its performances would be live as it goes to air.

Yeah, that would seem to be how they'd want to do it. And the crew that explained it that way might've just been making stuff up. Who knows. We'll find out tomorrow, I guess.

Great question though...how did the live arrangement sound? Oh, and I'm sure that if I was there I would have looked like an even bigger fool! Nice to hear that you had a great experience.

Didn't you sign an NDA? I'm not sure you should be telling that you weren't wearing any gloves.

If it was just a dress rehearsal  than why would anyone see you? Are you saying it was more than a dress rehearsal without actually saying so? ;) I guess I'll find out for myself shortly :) I too, will not be wearing gloves.

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share my 30 Rock experience which was ill-fated. Some u2 friends and I drove down to 30 Rock yesterday and arrived at around 1:00PM. We were hoping for an outdoor rink experience but our intel was sorrily wrong. When we got there we sleuthed around for some info and ended up seeing Sam O' Sullivan and Joe O' H around but they wren't telling. There was some random marching band there but there was plenty of crazy-ness at 30 Rock. Think Sweetest Thing video. We waited around this mysterious empty store for about an hour or two while some NBC interns started managing the situation. Security was uber-tight and being on the list was mandatory. There was between 75-to 100 fans there and some obvious NBC email listers as well. We would have got in some of U2's people were around but NBC crew was towing the line and letting 'no-one' in.

The email listers were brought into a room like cattle de-briefed and phones checked etc., etc. Then they were moved up to the 30 Rock observation elevator 10 by 10. Yesterday was just a filming with the real action happening today. Today there is going to be the show taping and probably the U2 outdoor taping as well. It was one of those days when even the most persistent and audacious fans get denied. It wasn't really a fan show more of a promo taping with a few CGI people in the background. It could be possible that these songs will be on JF's website or run over the credits. I would imagine time is going to be really tight on the show so I would be surprised if they got to play two songs. But you never know, this is u2. I'd imagine tonights show will feature some great skyline shots with u2 playing a la the Clarence in 2000.

Oh and codeguy, I only really liked you for your email! :)
