U2360 – Stadio Olimpico – Turin, Italy

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.”

Not so Soon – reports on today’s rehearsals

Two days to go and the boys are still ‘experimenting’ with their setlist during rehearsals in Italy. It looks like the ‘Soon’ part of the intro to the show has been dropped in favour of a new, less ambient track. Fortunately, they’ve hung on to Bowie’s Space Oddity.

On Wednesday after a short rehearsal in the early evening during which they played In A Little While, Miss Sarajevo, Until The End Of The World, Magnificent and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, from 9pm the band played what looks like a full set. The big shocker is that some of the NLOTH songs have been dropped in favour of the new song(s) as well as some oldies. No Breathe, no No Line on the Horizon, and no Unknown Caller. I do hope they’ll bring some of them back and start rotating older and newer material.
Your spoilers. Show me them.
