Good shout, based on history, will we get any potential teasers as to any deep cuts they're rehearsing?

Yep. We knew most of the surprises from the early stages of IE from the rehearsals - and some things that never saw the light of day, like One Step Closer and acoustic The Ground Beneath Her Feet.

The one thing from the first few dates of IE that blew me away, however, was The Electric Co. Early in rehearsals a fan heard Edge (or Dallas) play it, but we never had a report of a full band rehearsal and assumed it was just some noodling or an abandoned idea. When the band ripped into it for the first time at San Jose I couldn't believe my ears.

Doesn't matter. The idea that the NYC metro area is the only place to play in the state of New York is false. U2 did 3 shows in upstate New York on the Joshua Tree Tour. The Police played the indoor stadium in Syracuse on their Ghost In The Machine Tour and the Synchronicity Tour as well as also playing a stadium in Rochester on the Synchronicity Tour.

I'm still failing to see what your point is. That u2 have played smaller cities 30 years ago? That the cities on the Erie Canal hadn't yet been totally decimated by deindustrialization in the 80s? What is your argument and the fuck does it have to do with U2 not playing Kentucky more often?

More South American rumours

"São Paulo's marketing department signed an agreement on Monday night for Morumbi to receive two shows from U2, the famous Irish rock band, on October 19 and 22, this year."

Hmm, call me crazy, but 30 or so days away from Show #1 on 5/12 and still nada on the rehearsal rumors and no hints of practice yet?

Am I missing a thread?

Maybe they've played most of the JT so many times that rehearsal is optional?

I'm not really bilingual, but no comprende mi Interference amigos and amigas.

Or they were rehearsing in studio to learn the songs (see instagram photos) and now they're all on the pre-tour break. Reconvene in a week or two and start doing production rehearsals.

The point is that artist and bands play lots of other places in the state of New York and not just New York City metro area. If you think no one tours upstate New York anymore, your wrong. This is a general discussion thread and I was responding to other peoples post that New York and Illinois only got shows for their big cities, Chicago and New York City.

And I'd love to hear "A Celebration" or "Big Girls are Best"...which have about the same likelihood as NLOTH deep cuts.

This tour is going to be the 11 JT track + hits. Hopefully we'll get something like A Sort of Homecoming or Unforgettable Fire...one of the bigger/better album cuts as opposed to exclusively stuff straight off U218.

I don't think it's ever been played live, but I'd like them to give Hallelujah Here She Comes a go this time out... never happen, but at least it's from around the correct era.

Exactly. Gotta laugh about some of the deluded posts about set lists for this tour. Heck they likely consider RTSS a deep cut.

The set list will be JT + bog standard stuff. The only interest for me is to what extent they neuter any of the "too hard to play or sing" JT tracks. Wouldn't even surprise me if they drop a JT song or two.
