First night! The U2360 2010 tour kicks off in Turin, Italy. According to security, support act Kasabian will be on stage 7:30pm and U2 at 9pm CET. Due to circumstances beyond our control (um… going for sushi. Food > U2.) I’ll be away from the computer for most of the show, but no doubt will start filling in the details here shortly after.
Atu2.com has a handy list of people likely to tweet live setlist updates. Keep an eye on pictures posted to twitter via this twicsy link.
U2.com is carrying a feed to fan tweets on their tour page. (You’ll have to scroll down the page to see them. Or open the feed in a new window.) To be included, add the hashtag #u2360turin to your tweets.
Comment from friend in the stadium: “Voice and back seem OK. And all four of them seem to be enjoying themselves.”
Several videos from the show.
