I've seen/ heard  Dallas, Sam o Sullivan ( Larry's drum tech ) and Adams ( don't know his name ) play U2 songs at soundchecking.
That's probably what's being heard down there , if there's any truth to the France rehearsal
rumours the sound crew probably has the set list(s) on hand to play with the visuals.

It could be recorded audio from the past and they are just testing gear.

Friends ... I am so sorry that so many of you built up unrealistic expectations, but anyone who thought Streets was going to get booted for Drowning Man or whatever was always in for a disappointment.

We are going to get new songs, hits and a few fan-favorite/rarities. If you go in expecting any more than that, you are asking for it. 

Many of these new songs are very chilled. They are going to have to get the energy up somewhere. Cue Elevation, Vertigo and BD.

I have been attending U2 shows since the UF Tour and one thing I have noticed with crowds at U2 shows is that when NEW songs are played, the crowd tends to be subdued a little because they want to hear the song.  When the "hits" are played, they seem to be louder cause they know the songs etc. from being heard on the radio etc.  I think U2 does a good job of mixing the songs from rockers/semi-rockers/slow songs.

I do hope that if they play Elevation, it is the version that starts out slow and you don't really know when the explosion is coming, but when it does it is great.  I always preferred the slow build up Elevation versus the rocking out from the get go.

I am thinking it could be this, but the way the singing kind of stops and then picks up makes it kind of hard to tell.  If they are just sound checking, why use this vocal versus the one from Fallon or the one from the official release?  When I first heard the music playing I thought it was all the techs, but the singing is what throws it off for me and I think it is actually them performing.

It seems odd, especially given how many fans are in the area, that nobody has seen them coming and going at the arena itself. Combine that with the lack of things like Bono talking over the mic or anything which we've heard before and the 'fades' etc that can be heard and I doubt they're there yet.

I can come on here with 100% certainty that THE BAND IS NOT IN VANCOUVER.  What you are hearing is something called virtual soundcheck via waves audio systems and plugins.  They can take whatever recording they have from the past and dervie a virtual soundcheck from it. Again as i've stated many times, this first week is techs only.  If you want to believe that u2 has been there and nobody has seen them at all, well then, the tooth fairy lives next door to you.

I've only seen one report of a person claiming their friend met Bono in Vancouver on Thursday.  Sadly this person is a controversial source and I don't put much credence in her report.

I'm sticking with my theory that if they are in the vicinity, they are renting a frat boy house and they have installed a transporter system designed by Edge.

It's definitely a live version, but I noticed there were parts like the chorus which sounded exactly like the Fallon performance. Then, Bono ended the song the exact same way (vocally)... Makes me wonder

I thought the same thing too initially, until i realised that its the "extended version" that they were playing and not the "red edit version" which was performed on Fallon.

Good thing is that I used to see real fairies, so... U2 are in town.  ;D 

It doesn't take much to feel what is real, virtual soundchecks sound totally different.

Smithy, just realized you're right. It's the album version. I wonder who's playing xylophone, perhaps it's the orchestra or crew
