If Harry is accurate:

I still find it unbelievable that they still don't have a defined setlist 12 hours before a show that they've known they were playing weeks ago (if not several months ago).

If true, this also leads me to believe that the album isn't finished OR they finished VERY recently and still aren't comfortable w/ the songs yet.

Larry sitting in the anchor seat punches Bono when dealer pulls a 21 hitting 16 cause Bono pulled 2 extra cards from deck.

Bono's face now looks like Larry's

So I had been thinking this news/rumour of them practising new songs (but failing) maintains the 50/50 odds...

On one hand, it just screams 'misdirection'.
On the other, maybe they really have been trying for ages and just couldn't get the new songs nailed down live, and last night was the last attempt.

... But then it occurred to me that they've only been together in america, rehearsing for what... 2 weeks? If this whole album release and the fantastic radio promotion opportunity with iHeart was all riding on getting the songs perfected live, there's no way they would've only allowed 2 weeks to do it. That's mental. So that all sounds like fake info to disguise a big reveal.

Regarding not knowing the probable set list by yesterday; I would wager that they will defo play Beautiful Day, Vertigo, I will Follow, at least one of WOWY or Still Haven't Found, One, and probs the best known song from SOI (Miracle). So there's most likely 6 out of a probable 8 song setlist at most already set. So they really only have to make any actual decisions on about 2 or 3 songs. Not a big deal really.

Some had mentioned that Streets is unlikely in a typical non-U2 concert environment? Not playing Streets at a proper U2 gig would be heresy. But at these kinda shows? Not sure really.

Doubt it would be they can't play them. U2 songs aren't known for being too technical (aside from Edge's effects)

I would believe it more if they can't find a good live arrangement. Many U2 songs have been soundchecked and never seen the light of day.

Not because they can't play them, but they feel they sound like shit.

Though why Electrical Storm live arrangement ever made it to the paying public blows my mind. Edge's guitar in the chorus sounds so....off???

This is going to be a very long day

And tomorrow could be one of the best meltdown days ever

U2 have shown us over the years that they require an unusually large amount of rehearsals just to get the songs to sound halfway decent, especially the new songs, but also even old ones they've played over 1,000 times.

Even by the time the tours start they're usually still pretty rusty for s week or two. It's completely likely that they had rehearsed a new song or two and it still doesn't sound good enough to play at a highly publicized event like this. They don't want to repeat "The Miracle", which had a pretty poor first airing.
