The Tour Kicks Off Today!!!!!

I didn't see that anyone has posted this.....There is a great recap of last night's rehearsal on atU2.com! What an AMAZING setlist we might get to hear! All of those songs from 'Boy'......Check it out:
link to U2 blog from atU2.com
"At the end of the rehearsal, Bono asked us what we thought. He was expecting cheering, clapping, and screaming. The arena was silent. The silence was deafening. For the people in our section, our jaws were on the floor because we could NOT believe we were hearing 40 with Adam on guitar, Edge on bass. Our section's silence was because we were in complete shock, awe, amazement, and utter bewilderment. You left us speechless, as you always do, Bono."

Song notes:
Larry plays keyboards during "Yahweh"
during "Love and Peace or Else", Larry is at the edge of the egg when the song starts, playing drums there; during the middle of the song, he goes back to the main stage and drums from there, while Bono drums at the edge of the egg
during "Zoo Station", Edge is using a "Vertigo" guitar -- black with the red circles on it
"Streets" does not have a red-colored background; flags of the countries on the African continent are shown behind the band instead
"40" is performed as it was 20 years ago -- each band member leaves the stage one-at-a-time, and Larry ends the show with a brief drum solo


Stage notes:
very simple stage, clean - just Larry's drums, Edge's stuff, keyboards, and lots of room for Bono to move around
3-level video screen
main stage is shaped like the "Vertigo" spirals
the "egg" extends further out onto the floor than the Elevation "heart" did
there's no b-stage at the far end of the egg, but there is enough room for the band to play, just like on the Elevation Tour
