Not to whore out my site, but you can catch up on all rehearsal news through the articles there - I'm pretty sure it's the most extensive rehearsals news coverage (certainly I've covered a lot of things the likes of atu2 have chosen not to): U2gigs.com - U2 Innocence + Experience Tour news, pictures, reviews

Below are the songs confirmed to be rehearsed so far, as of 30 April - i.e. there is at least one report of somebody stating directly that they heard the song, not some vague unconfirmed comment about "everything from SOI".

New songs: California (There Is No End To Love), Cedarwood Road, Every Breaking Wave (full band and acoustic versions), Invisible, Iris (Hold Me Close), The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone), Ordinary Love, Raised By Wolves, Song For Someone, The Troubles, Volcano.

Old songs: Bad, Beautiful Day, Bullet The Blue Sky, City Of Blinding Lights, Desire, Elevation, Even Better Than The Real Thing, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, I Will Follow, Magnificent, Miracle Drug, Mysterious Ways, One, One Step Closer, Out Of Control, Playboy Mansion, Pride, Running To Stand Still, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Electric Co., Until The End Of The World, Where The Streets Have No Name, and With Or Without You.

Hate to be negative, but it's kind of discouraging that it doesn't seem that they've rehearsed very many songs, especially if they're out talking about setlist diversity.
I'm really disappointed that Reach and Crystal Ballroom haven't been rehearsed, looks like it's unlikely that they'll be played early on.

Let's be honest they aren't soft they know people can hear what's being rehearsed, and they can also rehearse in private, plus the good sources have told us more exciting things have been rehearsed but don't want to tell us

34 songs is actually a pretty good amount to be rehearsed already. I was impressed with the length of the list. For comparison's sake, the last five tours (ZooTV to 360) have had 51-61 songs played live at least once across their entire duration. That includes random one-off covers too. So if U2 were do rehearse over forty songs now, that would be close to the total number of songs that have got a decent run over the course of any of their last five tours!

In fact, here's what they did before 360 - 31 songs. My total says 30, but note the paragraph at the end mentioning Electrical Storm; no fan reported it rehearsed, but we can now see that it was.

No rehearsals on 28/06; audio and summary of past rehearsals - U2gigs.com

Great points and as usual your site is second to none, I could spend hours on it and its such a great resource to answer any of my inquires.

SFS sounds interesting - appears to be electric, but that could just be the reverb from the recording.

EDIT - by electric I mean the intro, obvs the rest is.

I didn't think to record it myself, obviously, and at the end YouTube did that thing where it jumps to another video automatically (I hate that), and by the time I clicked back, it had been set to private. Ugh.

In the Song For Someone description, the uploader promises the SBS clip, so I wonder if they will re-up it publicly soon? It's really interesting.
