Well, they're working with a manager who has multiple top list clients this time around, one who understands the risks and benefits associated with modern technology and social media. McG's biggest (and only, after a while) was U2. He also hated the concept of internet sharing and was a bit of a dinosaur in terms of social media. Anyone notice that U2 got more of a social media boost once Oseary was on board? That's not likely JUST a coincidence.

And of course, no matter WHO the manager is/was, it's necessary to have non-disclosure forms in place given how easy it is to snap a photo, snag a video, or even send out a tweet or FB post. U2 has always kept their inner circle close and confidential, and that is one of the many many reasons that they are such a successful band (talent and amazing music notwithstanding).

U2 have a social media presence?

Could've fooled me.

Looks like they have been rehearsing today:

Our Vancouver reporter Stephen K. says U2 has been rehearsing at Pacific Coliseum all night. “Mixture of old classics and obvious new ones.”

Stephen says he recorded a clip of “Every Breaking Wave.” (Hoping to get/share that later tonight.)
Hope it's a full band version of EBW.

I somehow can see Bono singing EBW with his worn out voice (kind of like he did with MOS on the last tour), but I think it just doesn't make a great closing song. If U2 should decide to play it in the acoustic/string version (which I'm almost convinced they will), there's no chance, IMO, that they'll play it at or even towards the end of the set. It just wouldn't fit.

Went out for the first time. If you are going just to listen you will have some success. 5 days in and there has been zero interaction with fans, venue garage door comes up and the multiple SUVs will go one of 1 of 2 directions.

Locally hired crew have all been told no eye contact with band members. Common with other acts, but the first i've heard of it in place with u2. Obviously the local crew would know not to approach them.

Most/all of the new album has been heard outside the venue with the exception of Troubles. EBW is apparently full band(ish). One casually fan that lives near the venue said she has heard Ordinary Love, so look out for a secondary confirmation on that one.

Older stuff heard includes B-Day, M-Ways(intro riff only), WOWY, COBL, PITNOL, Magnificent, Bad(tag is still TBA) Even Better and tonight i heard Edge solo play Electric Co. top to bottom.

Some of the earlier photos with pictures of trucks were actually the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool crew shooting some stuff on next door to the venue.

I'm not taking any audio or video,so don't ask.

Thank you so much for letting us know. I didn't figure we'd ever hear Electric Co. again - obviously nothing is set in stone, but good to know the song is on their minds

Actually was wondering about electric co - and other Boy songs given the innocence angle.

Many thanks for that report U2FP! I would be incredibly thrilled if The Electric Co. makes a comeback. It was pretty much the greatest thing about the Vertigo Tour.

I like to dream 11 O'clock Tick Tock will also be resurrected. Can you even begin to imagine how awesome it would be to hear 11OTT/The Electric Co. back to back? I'd pay full ticket price just for that.
