Title: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: Nielsen on July 26, 2010, 03:55:29 PM
This thread will be updated with reports and rumours (note the term there!) prior to 6th August. Check @U2's Main Twitter feed for more information (http://www.twitter.com/atu2).

__________________________________

29th July
This arial image shows the Claw complete (http://yfrog.com/2psplashturin3j) and the Countdown on U2.com continues. Furthermore, the reported new song was actually Thomas Dolby's My Brain is Like a Sieve (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqMpdOMblJI) . U2Place reports that Breathe and With or Without You were played (don't know whether it was a test by band or technicians).

__________________________________

30th July
U2 Italia reported that Pride, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, an unknown song (not new - maybe inaudible) and Where the Streets Have No Name were rehearsed this afternoon. New songs were apparently rehearsed indoors. U2 Place said that the unknown song was Moment of Surrender. There is some speculation that these were not rehearsed by the band due to "U2 rarely rehearse[ing] before 4PM (http://twitter.com/atu2/status/19926380252)". 

A Sort of Homecoming
(http://www.twitvid.com/8RAEA) apparently rehearsed sound checked. Nothing officially confirmed at the time of writing but my source is very reliable; Interference has claimed the clip was a fake.

__________________________________

31st July
U2gigs report that Bono hasn't even landed in Turin yet (http://u2.gs/78), meaning the clip of Pride and other songs wasn't Bono singing live and other sound-checks must have been done by the other members of the band (they've been in Turin throughout the whole time) or their techies. However, fans have reportedly seen Bono around Turin (http://tinyurl.com/397ljhu) contradicting the above reports. It's turning into a circus huh?

__________________________________

1st August
Pinch-punch, first day of the month. Er, well, not much news about except Bono is still not in Turin because he attended Alicia Keys' wedding (http://twitter.com/u2gigs/status/20061669503)! U2.com releases another Countdown video...Ultraviolet anyone? (http://www.u2.com/news/title/countdown-day-5/).

As I write this sentence, I'm rejoicing (well, not on an Ultraviolet level) but Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me  (http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate_url?doit=done&tt=url&intl=1&fr=bf-home&trurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.u2place.com%2Fnewsdett.asp%3FidN%3D4643&lp=it_en&btnTrUrl=Translate)was sound-checked!. And to add the cherry on the cake, a NEW SONG was rehearsed last night (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLq2H0EUKlk). Oh happy days!

__________________________________

2nd August
U2Gigs has tweeted that Mysterious Ways, City of Blinding Lights, Miss Sarajevo and Magnificent were sound-checked. Note that these had no vocals and were probably conducted by U2's techies. U2Place (http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate_url?doit=done&tt=url&intl=1&fr=bf-home&trurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.u2place.com%2Fnewsdett.asp%3FidN%3D4699&lp=it_en&btnTrUrl=Translate) have no reported that Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around the World, Elevation (riff), Gloria, Get On Your Boots, Until the End of the World and Unknown Caller were rehearsed by the techies.

The band then fully rehearsed Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around the World, In A Little While, Soon with Beautiful Day and Elevation. I also managed to dig out a fan's attempt to decode the new song's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLq2H0EUKlk&feature=player_embedded) lyrics, unofficially titled The Flowering Rose of Glastonbury (http://larrylootsteen.wordpress.com/2010/08/02/new-u2-the-flowering-rose-of-glastonbury/). U2 Kiss the Future has reported that Bad was rehearsed (http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fnetworkedblogs.com%2F6sB2f&sl=es&tl=en).

Final round-up of today's rehearsals thanks to U2Place (http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate_url?doit=done&tt=url&intl=1&fr=bf-home&trurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.u2place.com%2Fnewsdett.asp%3FidN%3D4699&lp=it_en&btnTrUrl=Translate): we have a Discotheque sighting. I repeat, a DISCOTHEQUE sighting (well a snippet..).....and 2 NEW SONGS.

__________________________________

3rd August

The new slow song 'For Your Love' or 'North Star' is up now on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URETkbpOaqs&feature=player_embedded). Right now, the band are rehearsing (http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.u2place.com%2Fnewsdett.asp%3FidN%3D4743&sl=it&tl=en). Songs include, Beautiful DayIn A Little While, Crazy Tonight/ Discotheque, Miss Sarajevo, Until the End of the World and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.

An update on today's rehearsals by U2Start (http://www.u2start.com/topic/7712/353443/SPOILER-U2-360/#353443): Major Tom, Flowering Rose of Glastonbury, Beautiful Day, MLK, Walk On/ You'll Never Walk Alone, Amazing Grace/ Where the Streets Have No Name, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me [Batman] and With or Without You were all played today.

__________________________________

4th August

Well word on the street, I mean er, web, is that Ultraviolet has been shown the door and replaced by the glam-rock of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me. Out of all people, I should be the most disappointed (you know, violet avatar, constant large type/fonts of 'ULTRAVIOLET LIIGHT') but considering I have probably 20 versions of Ultraviolet and it's on DVD, I'm surprisingly not bothered. Change is good folks!

A U2Place rehearsal update (http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=www.u2place.com%2F&sl=it&tl=en): In A Little While, Miss Sarajevo, Until the End of the World, Magnificent and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me all played.

Right, we have an actual set-list forming:

1. Space Oddity + New Song
2. Beautiful Day
3. Get On Your Boots
4. Magnificent
5. Mysterious Ways
6. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
7. The Flowering Rose of Glastonbury (Jaysus boys, change the title of that song!)
8. Elevation
9. In A Little While
10. Spaceship + Miss Sarajevo
11. Until the End of the World
12. The Unforgettable Fire
13. City of Blinding Lights
14. Vertigo
15. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (Remix)/ Discotheque [snippet]
16. Wednesday Bloody Wednesday
17. MLK
18. Walk On/ You'll Never Walk Alone [Snippet]
19. Amazing Grace/ Where the Streets Have No Name

***Encore***
20. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
21. With or Without You
22. Moment of Surrender

__________________________________

5th August

An article by Billboard said that the set-list from last night will be the one U2 will be performing tomorrow (http://bit.ly/drC4Lk).

Now we have a final stab at rehearsals:
1. Space Oddity / Intro jam / Beautiful Day
2. In A Little While
3. Miss Sarajevo
4. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
5. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
6. Discotheque (extended w/ riff)/ Crazy Remix.

Ultraviolet (Light My Way) makes a return apparently!

You type something down, highlight it then click on the small 'T' icon near the 'Change Colour' drop list/ 'A' icon. Insert a value between 1 - 90; 90 is the biggest size.

 :D U2.com e-mail heralding "Some surprises". I think anyone expecting a giant setlist change is unrealistic. My bets, if I was a betting man?

Lose: Unknown Caller, maybe NLOTH
Gain: EBTTRT, another 80s song in the rotation slot, new song in later setlists

To be honest I don't want them to drop any of the NLOTH songs. I prefer if they rotated them and a new song or two from NLOTH.

Drop the acoustic set, add in Mofo/ Discotheque/ Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me/ Mysterious Ways (extended in/outro)/ The Fly.

Post by: The Unknown Caller on July 30, 2010, 05:38:12 AM
I don't want to see any of the NLOTH tracks dropped either (Though I'd love to see the Go Crazy normal version played!) but I think they will, based on how frequently they were dropping Unknown Caller in the American leg. I think we're VERY likely to see Stand-Up though! And Pride is quite likely to return, IMO.

And yes, please, please do drop the acoustic set. 'Stay' is the only song that has really worked acoustically this tour and frankly even it was better full-band.!

Turin is -6 hours behind the Eastern Time Zone (Washington & New York) and +1 hour ahead of GMT (U.K., Ireland)


We're 6 hours ahead of EDT, not behind.

Bring back

Turin is -6 hours behind the Eastern Time Zone (Washington & New York) and +1 hour ahead of GMT (U.K., Ireland)


We're 6 hours ahead of EDT, not behind.

Whoops - got used to the concerts taking place in the U.S.! Thanks for the spot.

Since it's been played on every tour since the beginning, I'd find it to be a shame if I Will Follow isn't played at least once during this leg...but that's just me.

Did they really?  I don't have a webcam so I never tried it out, that is actually really, really funny.

I never really get angry about U2.com, some people do, it's like I expect it from them now.  I have buried the bar on expectation.

@U2 has always been my first U2 source too.  2nd: Twitter is seriously awesome for U2 stuff. I just LOVE it.

Recording came from a tweet by Jaime Rodriguez (http://www.twitter.com/jaimearodriguez), former @U2 contributor and journalist. Very reliable U2 news source.

Ok, kids I'm now hearing  ppl think it wasnt live audio but pre-recorded (bc it was playing at a certain time before the normal rehearsal hrs they normally hold).  What do we think? Are they being sneaky & trying to trip us up?

Thing about that 'A sort of Homecoming' recording is that it doesn't really sound like a recording of a rehearsal. There are no drums/bass/vocals going with it, it doesn't sound open air like the recording of 'Pride' (like with reverb, or traffic etc), it's not a video, just photos of Bono from the POP era, and, strangest of all, at the end the sound dies down really gradually, it doesn't end abruptly, like a recording of a rehearsal would. The last two points make me think it's just someone who's recorded their own version of the tune and is trying to pass it off as a genuine rehearsal.  :(
Of course, i would love to be proven wrong!  :)

Of course we should all be skeptical about the songs being 'played'. In fact, there is a huge question mark whether or these are legit. live band rehearsals, pre-recorded material or just entirely false recordings. Still, nothing like healthy rumours to keep us excited for the 6th!

Also, ASOH could have been Dallas sound-checking Edge's guitar with a random song (or one of his favorites), not necessarily the band rehearsing a song they're going to play.  Even if that's the case, I'd find it exciting, because I heart Dallas.

U2Start has posted it onto Twitter. Reliable U2 source = very likely legit. Plus, the audio is patchy indicating it isn't as 'fake' as the other clips.

Keep us posted, Nielsen.  I'd consider it a big upset - and a good one, at that - to get HMTMKMKM in the setlist.  Maybe "Bono Mortality Tour" will replace 360 at the tour name?   ;)

U2Start says they believe it is Bono. I'm on their side for this one.

Hm, I'm not sure how I feel about HMTMKMKM. Sometimes I really like it, sometimes I hate it. But I will say one thing: it means U2 is opening a whole new can of worms and that is DAMN EXCITING! If they're thinking about bringing HMTMKMKM back, WHAT ELSE IS IN THE BAG!?!?!?  :D *holds breath with deadly anticipation*

Hey gang,

On Friday, for the first show, I'm going to need a place to send home page visitors who want to follow the setlist as it happens. It's gonna be pretty impossible for them to find their way through this thread, and even if I link straight to a single post from Friday, there'll still be all kinds of other replies and such mixed in.

Idea: How about we change this thread to being dedicated to rehearsals, and then have a new thread for the actual concert -- and that thread doesn't open up until Friday, shortly before the show starts.

Thoughts?

And the riff of Gloria also played I think.

Apparently a different new song has been played as it says (slow) next to one of them, and Flowering Rose of Glastonbury isn't slow.

And also look to the left of the Crazy Tonight remix, can you read what it says, DISCOTHEQUE!?!?!?!?!  :o :o :o :o :o

Indeed it could! And if New Zealand gets 360, chances are even higher for One Tree Hill ;)

when have they ever opened with a song that was NOT from the album they are promoting? Like if they open with Beautiful Day instead of something from NLOTH? Would that be a first?
Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010

I hope they open with a new song. It seems too greatest hit-ish to open with an older song.  :-\

it reminds fans that bullet opened lovetown in the link. it wouldn't a first.
hmm didn't star spangled technically open lovetown?

i think opening with beautiful day ONE off would be good. static setlists ARE a problem, and it would be a pleasant surprise for older fans to hear beautiful day instead of breathe.
there's a lot of hype around this show, changing up the opener, especially to a modern classic, would be brilliant.

to me it says "we've given up pleasing anyone with this album." that would be sad.

I can't believe they are rehearsing so many songs they didn't play on the previous legs. Do they feel like they are never going to tour again? Also, IF many of these songs actually make it into the set, will they release another DVD?

i LOVE the celtic intro, but imagine Soon STRAIGHT into the opening guitar line of beautiful day.
i mean leave out the harmonics too.

i mean cut straight into 0:15 of the studio version, like they did on the opening night of barcelona.

That would totally work, but I think thats too "easy" to do.  I would like to hear the atmospheric ending of Soon combined with the chiming guitar riff of BD mixed in like we saw in the Celtic intro, and then blast into BD with "the heart is a bloom"

seriously, i think not opening with that same barrage of nloth songs will breathe (no pun intended) some fresh air into a tour which needed it.

Im liking the idea of 'One day like this' being the show opening music and running into beautiful day!
Its a very similar concept to the arcade fire song 'wake up' opening during the Vertigo tour. It really builds the atmosphere!!

HMTMKMKM- please!!!

Loving the 2 new songs- 'For your love' really does sound great alright- probably going to be one of the staple acoustic songs.

Dublin to Frankfurt.....here i come!!!

I really hope this is just a new idea they haven't put time and effort into...

Bono's falsetto is promising though, he couldn't pull such a clean voice and easy switch between chest and falsetto for a while.

oh definitely.
i was listening to a Bad from Croke Park, and he actually made a pitching error (first i've ever heard from him. i've heard him a bit sharp before , but this was a whole semitone off) trying to sing the snippet in falsetto.
in this vid he has a relatively thick falsetto, a great sign. it's really nice to hear. bono's falsetto has always been a beautiful thing, the longer he can pull it off for, the happier I am :) .

Yes this is a huge improvement. Also, this is likely the cleanest his voice sounded since Zoo TV.
Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: Aqua on August 03, 2010, 03:55:21 AM
pretty much. he had a beautiful falsetto for a very limited time during the vertigo tour.
the state of bono's voice makes a huge impact on the show for me, so im really excited :)

:D. are you with me that the rose bowl wasn't their best job? :D
i read about this blu ray thing that updates.. something.. or another :D
which basically will let people see newer shows or songs from newer shows.
there's a thread about it somewhere, and I think U2 are confident and excited about making this leg their best ever a little more than usual because of it :)

Is anybody else completely disappointed with the lyrics for the new acoustic one?  U2 in recent years has really overused beautiful and love and here we get a new song with another watered down, way to safe chorus.
Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: CherryYouDanceWithMe on August 03, 2010, 07:48:38 AM
I was a little disappointed by the lyrics. That is why I think they are more "hymn-like". To me that means they are simpler, more repetitive... meant to inspire more than tell a story.
Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: CherryYouDanceWithMe on August 03, 2010, 07:49:52 AM
And even the Glastonbury song.... flowering rose of Glastonbury? seriously? its a little cheesy IMO. But the music sounds outstanding. Once I hear it live and can actually make out the lyrics I might be more impressed.

A rehearsal song list does not equal a setlist... They probably wouldn't play a proper Discotheque (rock version is boring) so a snippet is fine.
A proper Gone would be finer.

.......... Just checked u2.com.... saw the countdown video for 3 days, and the background music was 'Love and peace or else'..... do you think it's possible that they'll play it on this leg of the tour?? is that supposed to be a teaser of some sort?  ;)

I think they're two different ones... they both have very similar riffs, but the verses are very unique, and in the 'new' one, Bono keeps shouting something that rhymes with Gloria, as opposed to "the flowering rose of glastonbury"
...although they are very similar. I wouldn't be surprised if they discarded one, or merged the two!

Or it could have been an instrumental rehearsal of the Glastonbury song and Bono was just simply shouting "Torino" or "Gloria" (which I thought he was saying) or something else over the music.  Not necessarily singing along to it

Even u2 gigs says they're the same song... but i don't believe it. The verses are completely distinct. Unless the newest video is a new ending/bridge for the glastonbury song, where they play different chords, then i don't believe its the same track.  :P

Well I take everything I said about Ultraviolet back :'(

from U2gigs http://www.u2gigs.com/article663.html

"according to U2Italia, for HMTMKMKM, Bono is using the microphone and jacket he used last year for Ultra Violet"

*whew*

I think HMTMKMKM is an okay song, but honestly I think it's completely random in context of this show. I feel like it's not even a legit song bc it was on a soundtrack ( even though yes I know they started it before they gave it to the batman movie).

I feel the same way.  Ultraviolet is just so, so beautiful.  So heart stopping.  So precious.  So intricate.

Hold Me is from a movie about a comic book character and it was never even released on an album. 

I'm heartbroken about Ultraviolet.  I want to know who woke up one morning and said "Hmm, If we're gonna drop some songs, I say we drop Ultraviolet.  Now what can we replace it with?  OH I KNOW, HMTMKMKM.  I'm a genius" >:(

If any of the reported songs make it into the setlist- BD, Kite, ASOH, Miss Sarajevo, plus the newer slow song- I think this is a completely different show. The mood and themes seem very far away from what they were last leg.

It runs well over the two minute mark so it would be a glorified intro for sure.

Sounds awesome. Assuming the whole band is on stage playing this new tune, wouldn't it make it the actual show's first song? Thus being a brand new U2 song opening a a gig...

Also, I wonder if they'll still use the Bishop Tutu bit.

Well I'm pretty sure Tutu is tired of seeing us "bbbbbbbbbooooootiful peeople!" every night from last year.

A live link to the spaceship?  Like "In A little While" last leg?  I have no idea, I was wondering the same thing...
Maybe the wee baby in his helmet again on the big screen?
I'm going to check u2 gigs to see what they think.

Oh, and HJ, I have no confirmation about this, but a few users on the forum referred to that bit as "the spaceman reciting poetry"...I suppose that means Frank from the live link up? Don't hold me to that though! And no problem! :)

Yeah, most likely, it hasn't been rehearsed at all so far...maybe they'll just use the Adam verse before Miss Sarajevo? Lots of fun, guessing, but we'll know for sure on Friday! ;D

A little surprised no Pride, and sticking with WOWY.  huh.  I have to admit WOWY with that mirror ball with Bono hanging up his jacket on his mic was rather unforgettable, I loved that bit.  But I would have loved a swap out for another song for WOWY.

UV and WOWY are one song when played back to back live :)

Magnificent should be high up, probably even the opener.  Its a fast, high energy rocker with a building intro.  It screams opener

I find it too powerful for an opener or high in the set. I feel like I need to....prepare for it. It's hard to deal with live. I can't have it blast me away so early in the show.
Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: U2-obsessed and proud on August 04, 2010, 06:01:58 PM
I honestly think Magnificent is the only NLOTH song that didnt excel in a live setting.  It was good, really good.  But not great.  Maybe because its the best song on the album and its so hard to improve upon, but UC, Crazy, Boots, MOS, and NLOTH were all better live.

Magnificent is analogue to Beautiful Day in my mind.  A fast rocker with some amazing melodies.  It doesnt have that epic buildup throughout the WHOLE song like Streets, One, City of Blinding Lights, and other mid to late set songs.  Thats why its perfect for the opening core

Unknown Caller is one of the highlights of the Rosebowl DVD, the others being Vertigo, Ultraviolet, No Line On The Horizon, Magnificent, Moment Of Surrender and The Unforgettable Fire.  3 of which, if we are to believe posts, have been dropped. ???


Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: U2-obsessed and proud on August 04, 2010, 06:16:15 PM
Streets builds up to and explodes into the OHHHH part
COBL builds up to and explodes into the TIIIIIIME part and the 3x repetition of Oh you look so beautiful tonight
WOWY builds up to and explodes into the OHHHH part
Walk On builds up to and explodes into the All that you fashion part
One builds up to and explodes into LOVE IS A TEMPLE, final verse, outro, and Hear Us Coming parts

Magnificent peaks at the first "Justify, til we die" part only 2 minutes or so in.  There isn't really anything to build up to after that.  The tempo remains the same.  There's a quick little guitar solo but thats nowhere near an "epic buildup".  Magnificent reaches its peak too early in the song to warrent a set list position towards the end of the main set.

I guess. I love the "la da de dah, la dah de dah-ah-ah-ah" part during the bridge. Rationale blacks out in my ego when Bono sings that. I do love how COBL breaks during the bridge. And I love Edge's falsetto live singing behind Bono.

EC, I hope they play all of them, especially OTH. I think Kite has the most reasonable chance, but I would love to be wrong.

I think the new set list will be great. I do wish they'd stick with UV though. I will miss all of the No Line songs (great album IMO), but if we are getting new songs, then it makes sense that they take precedent.

Where are all the songs from NLOTH???  Breathe? no Breathe?  No Line on the Horizon? Have they forgotten about the album they are touring??

If the setlist turns into a bunch of songs from previous albums, that will defeat the whole purpose.

To be honest, I'll be quite disappointed if this is the final setlist.

I'm glad they're playing new songs and that they added HMTMKMKM, but other than that it's a lot of the same.

I just wish U2 would realize that they're not touring for ATYCLB any more.  :P

So true. I love ATYCLB, but...BD, Stuck, Elevation, Walk On and IALW all in one tour? Maybe even all in one night, if I'm not mistaken? Yeesh!

Sorry OAP, but here's where I go 100% against you on this.

Only 3 should come from ATYCLB.

Or less

I wish I could go back in time and see an Elevation tour show ;D

I was so happy that the Rose Bowl show had 5 ATYCLB songs, and that my show had 4, and that the R/R HOF show had 2 ;D

I mean, don't get me wrong, ATYCLB is something like my fourth or fifth favourite album, but...this is the NLOTH tour. Not the Elevation tour. Although for the record I too would have been so happy to see an Elevation show. :(

Post by: ABloodRedSky on August 04, 2010, 08:51:57 PM
It's not a big deal, really. A tour uses many songs from the album its promoting. Now, if U2 were a band with three albums - ATYCLB, HTDAAB and NLOTH, that would be fine. But the fact is that U2 have three times that many albums, and it would make more sense, and in my opinion, appeal to more people, especially those who are older fans, to represent all other albums equally. Or if not equally, at least not heavily favour one or two. I mean...who wouldn't want to hear stuff from Boy? Gloria from October, maybe? Some Zooropa or Pop?

I know there's 5 songs off of ATYCLB but there's only 2 off of HTDAAB being played too.  Thats 7 from the previous 2 albums combined.  Not bad at all.  Still PLENTY of room in the set for other stuff

An omission of 2-3 songs....interesting.

If it was Bono's back, they decided to omit three songs from NLOTH. Since the NLOTH songs are new, they would probably rehearse 'em a lot. Then again, they are rehearsing Streets and Beautiful Day a lot...

If they drop 3 NLOTH songs & replace them with 3 NEW songs then fair enough...assuming a new record will be released soon-ish.

I heard Miss Sarajevo live in Munich, but apart from the Pavarotti part, it has really little going for it. And, to be honest the opera part is quite demanding, as it is a different vocal technique, so I hope it's gonna be on rotation with some NLOTH song.

I think it would be of questionable mental value from the band to play 5 ATYCLB songs in Europe (in America it would make a little more sense)
and only 3 from NLOTH, when the ones they played worked very well, and they still have some obvious live songs off NLOTH they haven't played on the last two legs of the tour. Stand Up Comedy needs to be played live, and Crazy Tonight's album version would be a great show opener actually.

Space Oddity - New Intro - Beautiful Day

(Are we counting this as all one song or what?)

So is this highly likely or what?

The most likely thing to happen now is they'll alternate UV and HMTMKMKM as encore openers..... i hope so, they're both EPIC songs and it will keep the setlists more fresh from city to city!  :D

I've learned not to complain as much when it comes to U2 and their set-lists. Seeing HMTMKMKM gave me a positive shock. And seeing U.V. back is even more of a shock considering I was predicting they were gonna drop it anyway since it was already on DVD.

Well as it's almost twenty past 11 PM over in Turin, I doubt they're going to rehearse any more, which is odd seeing as how it's the day before the show, but they probably know what they're going to do after yesterday's full rehearsal.

By around 12 they're finished. I'm guessing they're having an early night after a few tweaks here and there.

Best thing we can hope for is UV and HMTMKMKM BOTH in the encore, and the other thing is that they'll rotate these two, which probably means Frankfurt will be getting Ultraviolet.
Title: Re: SPOILER: Rehearsal Updates & Rumours For Opening Show 2010
Post by: DGordon1 on August 05, 2010, 03:28:47 PM
I'd rather see either SBS, Pride, Walk On or even One rotate with HMTMKMKM rather than UV. UV has been a revelation on this tour.

They really are cool for bringing out the pizzas. I mean, its just cool they acknowledge the fans that have been out there cheering for them during their rehearsals and wishing them well. I hope they could hear all those cheers from inside the stadium when the were playing the new songs.
