Rehearsal Provides First Clues

U2 rehearsed their new show before a group of fans in Los Angeles tonight, opening with City of Blinding Lights and closing with 40.

As well as those who won competitions through US radio stations, the band also invited in a crowd of fans who had been waiting outside the Los Angeles Sports Arena.

City of Blinding Lights, played in front of a startling curtain of lights descending from the top of the stage, was immediately followed by a a trio of songs from Boy.

‘We’re going back to where it started for us,’ said Bono.

But not for long. Next up was Beautiful Day, the crowd already screaming the house down, and we were soon into three more songs from the new album: Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can’t Make it On Your Own and Love and Peace.

As well as a great set of tracks, new and old, there were a series of dazzling production innovations providing clues to the look and staging of ‘Vertigo 2005’.

But we don’t want to give too much away because that might spoil the surprise for Monday - and anyway the band may decide to change the set completely.

Production insiders have told us that they have rehearsed a huge number of song so there is a lot to choose from.

And as if being part of such a select group to see U2 play live was not enough, this was also Easter Saturday - as the fans left the show, everyone was offered a chocolate egg!

More news from inside Vertigo 2005 as we get it

Sounds like a show well worth it's money! Woot!! *can barely contain excitement*

THAT is my favourite part! I'm going to two shows, one on the first leg and one on the 3rd leg, and I'm so psyched to think what a surprise each setlist could be!

I could only afford one show- on the third. Let me know how it goes!

I didn't expect to get any tickets, really! I tried for Vancouver and Seattle and got nothing. I had been planning a trip to New York this summer and when I talked to my friend, a fellow U2 fan, we agreed to try for tickets for one of the many NYC shows and if we got them, I'd go in October instead. Bizarrely enough, we managed to get a set!

Then, on a whim when I was looking for something for my mother, I checked ticketmaster for Seattle tickets and pulled up two out of nowhere! So, I'm there again. The way they're spaced apart will let me afford the 3rd set, and my mother is buying me the first set as a gift.

What show are you going to?

Oh man, so excited.

And you know what? I thought to myself, "I'll bet during City of Blinding Lights they're going to do something with flashy, twinkling lights." And I was right!

About 2 months to go till I can see them!!

Yep... The two shows in my area (San Jose) seemed to be totally sold out before the tickets even went on sale and then they aren't coming back this way on the next US trip. I tried every way that I could to see the last tour and got screwed over and it looks like it's happening again.

I really don't think that there are any more seats left for either show. The HP Pavillion (where the show is being held) is really not a very big place.

Not seats leftover, but those they hold for whatever reason. Radio shows, corporate seats, whatever. The Seattle venue is really small too, and yet-random seats for me!

is it bad that I find the cartoon Bono sooooo hot in "HMTMKMKM"? because I do.

there's a part in the song where after maybe the second time bono sings the chorus, he does this "ohhh ohhhh!" and I just die each time. I'll rewind and listen to that part over and over because i love it just that much.

anyway, long story short, i REALLY love your icon.

There's a website somewhere that has like, .wav files of all the semi-orgasmic noises Bono makes in songs and in concerts. Highly, highly amusing, and HMTMKMKM is v. popular because of the section you're talking about *g*
