All the newspaper reviews I read complained about the first four songs...

How the crowd wasn't into them blah blah blah...

 Roll Eyes

They could play it safe and open with the hits, but they don't.

I think they've been doing the same setlist, except for switching MLK with Angel of Harlem every now and then.

I like the new songs, I like the setlist.

Nooooooo, Line on the Horiiizon.

They did two shows here and at the second one they played New Year's Day, Electrical Storm and Stay.


Elevation, Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of and The Unforgettable Fire seems to be played regularly.

Forgotten U2 Songs Surface
by Music-News.com - August 22 2009
photo by Ros O'Gorman


U2 songs recorded two decades ago but left unreleased will soon surface.


U2 have revealed that they are going to release songs that were recorded for an earlier album which they forgot all about.

The Irish rockers said they found several songs they recorded while making their 1984 album The Unforgettable Fire.

Frontman Bono and guitarist The Edge said they rediscovered the songs while they were remastering the record for its 25th anniversary reissue which is scheduled for release later this year.

Speaking to Radio 1, The Edge said: "I listened to some tracks that we're gonna release with the new Unforgettable Fire reissue, some new songs that we discovered that we'd recorded, back in that era - the '80s - that we're gonna put out. And they sound amazing."

Bono said that one track, entitled 'Disappearing Act', is "incredibly special".

The Edge added that the band have just completed putting the finishing touches to it in the studio.

He said: "Well, it was originally called 'White City', and it was a track we started with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois back in 1983 when we were recording The Unforgettable Fire.

"And we discovered it about six months ago, and we dug it out and did some work on it in France a few weeks ago, and it's now finished."

Bono added: "It's 25 years ago, the drums, the bass and the guitar. And now, the voices. It is a strange, weird thing. And it's going out with The Unforgettable Fire reissue, but no-one's heard it."

Just caught the 360 tour... the stage setup was incredible.  We lucked out with the weather and got an open-Skydome show with a nice breeze coming in.  After a show like that, I don't care what criticisms other people might have about U2.... easily one of the best concerts I've been to.

The acoustic "Stuck In A Moment" was actually one of the highlights for me, and I don't really like that song all that much.  Everyone in the crowd was also singing really loud for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" which was cool... The concert was so good that I didn't even notice that they skipped over "Pride"!

Yeah, the stage set up is impressive.

I'm glad they choose to start the shows with four new tracks. Even though some critics bash them for it.

Same shit every tour for every band. "Too many new songs".

Well all of their songs were new at some point! I bet these people wished they hadn't played Beautiful Day in 2001 because it was new! Or "One" in 1992.. hihi

I applaud them for not putting out a new album for the sake of touring their hits.  These guys work hard to push their new material and they play it convincingly in concert.  A few years down the road, everyone is singing those songs and complaining about the next "new batch"...  I hear people at the concert that are itching to hear Vertigo as much as they are something from Achtung Baby.

I won't have any complaints if they keep songs like "Breathe" or "Magnificent" in their setlists years on from now.

True.

Doing the same greatest hits on every tour, how exciting is that going to be in the long run?

This alternative is way better.

U2 have announced they'll play at the Montreal Hippodrome on July 16th. In order to fit the estimated 80,000 people at the concert U2 are shelling out 3 million dollars to build a temporary open air stadium. It will take 2 months to build and one to tear down once the show (s) are over. Tickets go on sale for the concert this Saturday at noon throught the Bell Centre Box office (514) 790-2525 or 1-877-668-8269) or www.geg.ca. They'll run you between $30-$250 a seat.
