Something's going on inside with the production crew. But it's pretty subtle not like before. Maybe just video? Haven't heard any audio.

No worries. Bono is just going to pull a Kanye and rant for about 45 minutes towards the end of the show.

Fair enough. Logical to assume there will be a dress rehearsal Wednesday or Thursday, so that leaves the probability of normal rehearsals tomorrow and Tuesday or Wednesday as a day off

Any idea why that picture looks so bizarrely stitched together?

Nope, maybe a panorama?

Some posters in The "spoilers" thread seem to forget that U2 skipped several early albums on a most of the 1992 dates they did.

When rehearsal set lists are known it's quite rare for them to pop with songs last minute. Stuff like OOC was sound checked repeatedly at the Vancouver 2015 rehearsals. Carefully thought out set lists is what U2 usually do better than any other touring act out there.

Having the last song like 2017's new song or Moment Surrender may be a way to give some people a 10 minute head start on traffic. Those that did multiple 360 shows know this is a god send. The opening/closing song of a set are the only parts of the show where you can basically play ANYTHING and you won't lose the crowd.

I find the "flow" of the setlist very interesting having heard it a couple times in person outside the venue. A fair amount of thought went into it, with some carefully EXCLUDED songs. I really like that they've entered the part of their career when they can focus on certain old eras during a show while letting other eras take a rest for a few years. Rush/Iron Maiden have done similarly interesting things with their set lists in recent memory, even if they remain somewhat static night to night.

Why are people trashing the 2015? Watched the Paris DVD for the first time in a year and it held up much better than I expected. Also watched Rose Bowl and was much more ho-hum looking back on that tour leg.....and I was at the Rose Bowl show.

Between the red zone, soundboard, and sound/lighting towers, there's really not a lot of GA floor room. Lotta barricades around everything.

I worked on Peter Garrett's personal staff in his office in Parliament House for two years... and I have no idea just how much of that set is obscure/nostalgia focussed.

Why is this a good example of nostalgia? Not being a dick, genuinely want to know what about this set is doing it right.

Its more than 21 songs for a start!

And no new songs. As if anyone is there for that.

It'll be more of a downer than MOS if U2 end with a new song. A massive WTF moment actually.

If they do wish go go down this self indulgent role then the only sensible place to put a new song is at the very start of the encores.

I respectfully, whole-heartedly disagree. This song sounds like a natural closer, and if they have the confidence to go for it, it is the kind of bold move we used to love about them. It shows balls, confidence in the future, and if it is good, it is their best chance at convincing the oldies in the audience that there is something good to come.

Hell yeah. I'd take an unknown song as a closer for sure after a set of JT and ASOH. Hell they could fucking close with 10 minutes of fart noises and I'd still be walking out in tears.
