I know there's a bunch of songs by the Broken Bells that are played - the Ghost Inside and the High Road were both definitely played in Montreal.

I miss BP Fallon doing his DJ set form the ZOO TV days!! Nothing beats hearing "house of pain's 'Jump Around!" being played from a Trabant by the ex manager of Led Zeppelin!!!

I know they practically played all of Arcade Fire's latest album, The Suburbs, at Nashville, along with a lot of tunes off of "Brothers" by the Black Keys. Great, great stuff all around.

I heard at least two, maybe three, songs off of the Strokes' newest album Angles, over the PA at the Chicago gig a couple weeks ago. The song off of that album that I remember hearing most specifically is called "Life Is Simple In The Moonlight." It's probably my favorite track on the album. Was happy to hear it.

Other than that, yeah, I also remember hearing at least a few tracks off of The Suburbs.

Can't think of much else, sadly.

I didn't recognize anything except for MGMT - Time to Pretend is still in, and there's a song by Gaving Friday quite close to showtime.

I'm reasonably sure I heard at least one Florence + the Machine song during the Chicago pre-show music, probably "Dog Days Are Over."

EDIT: Also, this thread has some more info: http://www.u2interference.com/forums...198675-19.html

Aside from the arcade fire, I recall the following from Montreal (mostly #2)

- Lisztomania by Phoneix
- 1901 by Phoenix
- Panic Switch by Silversun Pickups
- Something Good Can Work by Two Door Cinema Club

Keep the Lights On - Wave Machines is the song they play right after the opening act leaves the stage. I enjoy that one.

They played Discoverer by REM at Salt Lake City show I remember.

At that show they were also giving a lot of love to Radiohead's The King of Limbs and also played The Rolling Stones' Satisfaction, Start Me Up, and Brown Sugar. Heard some Arcade Fire there too.

All I know for sure is that they play some great stuff in between the acts.
