This would appear to be incomplete, but it's what fans reported hearing tonight:

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Magnificent
Get On Your Boots
Beautiful Day
Vertigo
Moment of Surrender
Magnificent
Get On Your Boots

(break)

Intro
Breathe
No Line On The Horizon
Get On Your Boots
Magnificent
(thanks fans listening outside)
Beautiful Day
(message about Desmond Tutu)

Since it's almost midnight there now, I'm guessing the band is done. But we'll update this if need be.

I'm thinking "mensaje de Desmond Tutu" means a recorded (video?) message from the Archbishop?

Looks like today it's more about getting the new songs down and less about running through a full set.

anybody think they could be working on 3 different openers:

intro / no line...
intro / magnificent (06/17 rehearsal)
intro / breathe (06/19 rehearsal)

?

i have always thought they would (and should) open with 'no line', but they did use 3 songs to open in 05/06.

It seems like it... or even working out which will be  the opener of the encore as well

I think they are trying different openers and will likely settle on one.

It would be very surprising if they didn't flip back and forth between at least 2 openers on this tour. They're probably also practicing the opener of the encore.

I don't get this sudden moaning about Sunday Bloody Sunday I keep seeing. People keep going on about it being overplayed and not wanting to see it anymore. What's with all the hate? Of all the "oldies" it's probably the one they've played least frequently over the years. Has everyone forgotten that it was completely omitted during Lovetown, made rare and sporadic appearances on ZooTV and only showed up towards the last third of Popmart? I don't recall this kind of sentiment towards Until the End of the World before the last tour, despite it not having missed a concert since it's introduction at that point.

I'd love it if they had 2 setlists... nite1 and nite 2 with different openers for each.  They did this during the beginning of Vertigo, but it was like you said, they settled into a more permanent set eventually

Agreed!  and the Popmart version is very unlike the original, soft, toned down and more of a cry... with Edge singing. 

I wonder if it was the way it was done during Elevation that has gotten people soured on it.  They played it full band electric but slower.  The Vertigo version returned the urgency and fire though.  So I am not sure what people are getting on about

Sunday Bloody Sunday will never get old for me. I just listened to it on my ipod yesterday, actually. I for one would love to hear it played this tour. What is all this sudden hate about? :(
