Just listened to the clips. It sounds like the studio versions are being used as backing tracks while the band technicians are testing out gear, over it. Dallas is playing basic chords on California. Edge used a different approach for California on Jools to fill in the synth. On vertigo, you can hear Dallas playing different notes over the studio track, testing delay times! Keep these recordings going, especially when the actual band gets there!

Are they all in one place? I've only heard Vertigo and just tonight Volcano.

You know what amazes me?  If you are a fan of this band, like lots are, you cannot tell the difference between their studio versions off the records and something that is being played live?  Like I've mentioned in a few other posts, when you first start touring rehearsals, the crew is always there a week or so prior to band to rehearse the load ins and outs, stage builds and to work out all of the electronics kinks so the band can just mosey in there and start playing and start getting used to the new stage and whatever it is they have worked out.  This whole week has been crew only.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist or a PhD to figure that out.  If the band were there, you'd know about it, and not from some people on the twitters and Facebooks who want to believe studio Bono is real life Bono and that Dallas has suddenly become the Edge.

LOL.  Zing!  Although I suppose MAYBE the crew might have some idea of what the band wants to perform, and uses those tracks to ring out the system.

Elevation? Surely not.

Why? I'd say it's a lock to appear on the tour and better than 50/50 odds of being a regular.

Not a song I want to hear, so I hope you are wrong.

The band have so many great songs that don't get played it seems a waste to keep a dud like that on the set, it's such a dumb, empty song.

Oh well thats the nature of setlists I suppose can't have everything you want and will always be stuff you don't....has to be a beer or loo break song or two!

I don't care if it is pre-recorded and techs, hearing the clips makes me pumped for the shows! It seems like forever ago that I bought tickets! It's finally getting close!
