That's 12, so another 12ish to go for a full set, 6 from JT leaves another 5 we know as left to play on JT makes 17. Which leaves around 6 or 7 songs left they can choose to play with possibly OL if it gets chosen.

"Borrowed" from atU2.com:

 

 

 

U2's first full day of Joshua Tree Tour 2017 rehearsals inside BC Place stadium is in the books after almost 10 hours. Fans and passers-by were posting on Twitter and Instagram since about 2:00 pm PT, reporting that they're plainly able to hear the band perform elsewhere in downtown Vancouver.

We kept track as best we could of the band's rehearsal setlist, which is presented below as we posted it with some notes indicating things we're not positive about.

MAJOR SPOILER WARNING

1.) "Pride"
2.) "Where The Streets Have No Name" (video clip below)
3.) "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"
4.) "With Or Without You"
5.) "New Year's Day" (not full song)
6.) "Bullet The Blue Sky" (not sure if full song)
7.) "Exit" (not sure if full song)
8.) "Miss Sarajevo" (not sure if full song)

The above songs were all performed in the mid-afternoon hours. The band took some breaks here and there. This next batch of songs was played during the early evening hours.

9.) unknown song (listen here or listen here)
10.) "Red Hill Mining Town" (short clip here)
11.) "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
12.) "New Year's Day"
13.) "Bullet The Blue Sky"

There were some more stops and quiet periods with individual songs being worked on, possibly by Edge's tech, Dallas Schoo:

14.) "One Tree Hill" (guitar only)
15.) "Running To Stand Still" (keyboards only)

And then around 10:15 PM local time, the band started a lengthy run-through that went as follows, with almost no breaks aside from what sounded like some noodling/tweaking the keyboard intro to "Miss Sarajevo." Fans around the world listened to this last segment via Bjorn L.'s Periscope stream. In the Periscope app, fast forward to the 2:58 mark -- 2 hours, 58 minutes -- to listen in, and be ready to turn it up.

16.) "Bullet The Blue Sky"
17.) "Running To Stand Still"
18.) "Red Hill Mining Town" (short clip here)
19.) "In God's Country"
20.) "Trip Through Your Wires"
21.) "One Tree Hill"
22.) "Exit" (short clip here; might've included a "Gloria" snippet -- not sure)
23.) "Mothers Of The Disappeared" (with "El Pueblo Vencera" outro)
24.) "Beautiful Day"
25.) "Ultraviolet"
26.) "One"
27.) "Miss Sarajevo"
28.) unknown song (same as earlier)

And with that, at 11:30 pm PT, we now think rehearsal is finished.

These aren't the band's first tour rehearsals overall, just the first inside BC Place stadium where the tour will begin in 10 days. (Some of the production crew was working on visual elements inside the stadium Monday night.)

I'm not going to say I'm disappointed, because I know these aren't all guaranteed to be in the setlist, and others may be... However; there are some songs at this point, that I wish they would take out and replace with lesser played songs over the years. How can I not sound like a douchebag saying this? I guess I cant, but for the record, if they cut Pride/Sunday I would absolutely fine with it...

Sounds like they started around 3pm local time and based on what I saw finished up just before 11:30pm. For the last tour rehearsals were weeknights generally very late at night into the early morning hours but so far with just the one day of rehearsals behind us, they started in the afternoon and ended late at night, more than likely taking a dinner break at some point maybe. The sound clearly is easier to hear from the BC Place than the other places they rehearsed before. They more than likely rehearsed elsewhere before they arrived in Vancouver as well, curious if they follow the same schedule as last tour with rehearsals every night with weekends off.

 

Interesting that some last night were commenting about some BC Place staff power-washing the sidewalks outside and how stated they seem to start and stop the power washing machines when the band was preforming, some speculate this was done to create background noise so people trying to record it have a difficult time. Who knows if that is even accurate, could be just odd that crews would be out powerwashing late at night.

Again, "borrowed" from atU2.com...

 

From Wednesday:

 

 

 

 

U2 is back inside Vancouver's BC Place stadium for a second day of rehearsals. Although we haven't seen any tweets or audio/video clips yet, a reader outside the stadium says today's rehearsals began at about 1:30 PM PT. Yesterday, the band spent more than nine hours rehearsing (with a few breaks, of course) so we'll be watching to see if today is just as long.

MAJOR SPOILER WARNING

As we did yesterday, we'll keep a running list as best we can of songs that fans are able to hear outside the stadium.

1.) "Running To Stand Still"
2.) "Red Hill Mining Town"
3.) "Miss Sarajevo"
4.) "Mothers Of The Disappeared"

After breaking for a couple hours in the afternoon, rehearsals resumed around 5:30 PM, but may not have been the full band.

5.) "One Tree Hill"
6.) "Pride" (guitar only; possibly Dallas Schoo)
7.) "Miss Sarajevo" (not full band; possibly Dallas again)

The full band began in earnest at about 6:45 PM PT. It was live streamed on Periscope by U2 fan Bjorn L.

8.) "Miss Sarajevo"
9.) unknown song (believed to be a new song called "The Little Things That Give You Away"; audio clip here)
10.) "A Sort Of Homecoming" (audio clip here)
11.) "A Sort Of Homecoming"
12.) "A Sort Of Homecoming"
13.) "A Sort Of Homecoming"

The band took a break starting at about 8:00 pm PT, and resumed at about 9:10 PM PT as follows:

14.) "A Sort Of Homecoming"
15.) "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
16.) "New Year's Day"
17.) "MLK"
18.) "Pride"
19.) "Where The Streets Have No Name"
20.) "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"
21.) "With Or Without You" (short clip here)
22.) "Bullet The Blue Sky" (short clip here)
23.) "Running To Stand Still"
24.) "Red Hill Mining Town" (short clip here)
25.) "In God's Country"
26.) "Trip Through Your Wires"
27.) "One Tree Hill"
28.) "Exit" - snippet of "Gloria" (short clip here)
29.) "Mothers Of The Disappeared"
30.) "Beautiful Day"
31.) "Ultraviolet"
32.) "One"
33.) "Miss Sarajevo"

And that's how the night wrapped up -- at about 10:50 PM PT, just before the band's 11:00 PM curfew. As the evening session went along, you could hear a couple dozen fans on the streets outside the stadium cheering after every song.

That's all for tonight. More to come as U2's rehearsals continue. Follow us on Twitter for the most up-to-date information!

 

 

 

 

From Thursday:

 

 

 

 

U2 spent Thursday rehearsing for the third straight day in anticipation of next week's Joshua Tree Tour 2017 opener in Vancouver. But for a while, there was plenty of uncertainty about the band's plans. Rehearsals earlier this week started no later than 2:00 PM local time, but on Thursday fans outside BC Place stadium didn't report any sounds until shortly after 4:00 PM PT. And even then, there was some uncertainty over whether U2 was rehearsing live, whether the band's stage techs were playing/testing gear or whether it was a playback of previous rehearsals.

There were reports that "Ordinary Love" was heard in this first afternoon session, but none of our staff could confirm. What we did hear via online clips and streams included:

1.) "Red Hill Mining Town" (possibly not full band nor full song)
2.) "Exit" (short clip here)
3.) "Miss Sarajevo"

After a break, rehearsal resumed at about 6:15 PM PT, with fans hearing three more songs:

4.) "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
5.) "Pride"
6.) "Where The Streets Have No Name" (Bono only singing the chorus)

After a lengthy break, U2 began rehearsing in earnest again at about 9:15 PM PT with the following being heard:

7.) unknown song (different from the unknown song earlier this week)
8.) "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (short clip here)
9.) "New Year's Day" (short clip here and another clip here)
10.) "A Sort Of Homecoming"
11.) "MLK" (short clip here)
12.) "Pride"
13.) "Where The Streets Have No Name" (short clip here)
14.) "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (stopped and restarted a couple times) (short clip here)
15.) "With Or Without You" (short clip here and another clip here)
16.) "Bullet The Blue Sky"
17.) "Running To Stand Still"
18.) "Red Hill Mining Town"
19.) "In God's Country"
20.) "Trip Through Your Wires"
21.) "One Tree Hill"
22.) "Exit" (short clip here - listen for a new Bono "rant" at the end)
23.) "Mothers Of The Disappeared" (with "El Pueblo Vencera")

By this point, fans estimated that there were about 75 people listening outside the stadium -- see the "Exit" clip above. The band took a short break and then resumed at about 10:35 PM PT.

24.) "Pride" (stopped and started)
25.) "Where The Streets Have No Name"
26.) "Exit"

And with that, the band wrapped things up a little before 11:00 PM PT.
