Auckland Rehearsals

From U2gigs:

Quote:
Today, rehearsals have taken place at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland. We believe that these were by the crew rather than U2 themselves, though it is possible that some of the band were involved. No vocals have been heard, so it is unlikely that Bono participated.

We would like to extend sincere thanks to contributor Simon for his detailed reports of proceedings. Two bass riffs were heard around 4:30pm local time; they were:

Crazy Tonight (remix)
Get On Your Boots

At 6:30pm, Simon then reported the following tracks:

Recording over PA of Neil Armstrong's "one small step for man" moon landing quote
City Of Blinding Lights, keys
City Of Blinding Lights, bass riff
Unrecognisable drum rehearsals
One Tree Hill, in Simon's words "hint only"
City Of Blinding Lights instrumental, twice
Vertigo intro

And in his most recent report, at 7:10pm, Simon reported the following songs, still with no vocals:

Moment Of Surrender
Unknown jam
Quick One Tree Hill riff
One Tree Hill

Yay, OTH!
Also, perhaps the "unknown jam" is another new song?

Edge doesnt seem to optimistic on new album

Just checked out a very new TMZ video where The Edge doesnt sound too optimistic about a new album "soon" or the fact that bono said theres a single in December?!? Doesnt give me too much hope, check out the video on tmz.com

If TMZ shoved microphones in my face, I wouldn't want to give those jerks any information, either.

I know how much the song is connected to NZ, but dear U2: the rest of your fans love OTH as well .

Given that it was techs, I doubt they would rehearse new U2 material.

Techs probably play something that isn't on the set to cover 'off the map' eventualities

Yeah, Not really trusting TMZ for any breaking news on U2.

I'd say u2.com are better than tmz. So that's saying something!

It's really that late in Auckland? It's 10:19pm here... 10:19pm of the previous day. It'll be impossible for me to attend these setlist parties.
