(Spoilers) Day 6: U2's Joshua Tree 2017 Tour rehearsals in Vancouver

@U2, May 09, 2017
By: Matt McGee

 

U2 continued Joshua Tree tour rehearsals Tuesday night in Vancouver, but it was a very short night compared to prior rehearsals.

The band arrived at BC Place late in the afternoon and, not too long after that, fans outside the stadium heard a group of songs that we (and they) seem to agree was not U2 rehearsing, but either playback of previous rehearsals or more likely the band's stage techs playing (because there was little singing heard in this first group of songs):

"In God's Country"
"Elevation" (short clip here)
"Red Hill Mining Town" (organ only)
"A Sort Of Homecoming"

After that, all was quiet until about 10:15 PM PT when what sounded like an actual band rehearsal began with these songs:

1.) "Where The Streets Have No Name"
2.) "Pride"
3.) "Where The Streets Have No Name"
4.) "Bullet The Blue Sky"
5.) "Running To Stand Still" (twice)
6.) "Red Hill Mining Town"
7.) "In God's Country"
8.) "Trip Through Your Wires"
9.) "One Tree Hill"

At that point, U2 had run up right against the 11:00 PM PT curfew and continued with the sound so low it was barely audible outside the stadium. Still, rehearsal continued with:

10.) "Exit"
11.) "Mothers Of The Disappeared"
12.) "Beautiful Day" (audio was turned back up for this song and remained up until the end)
13.) "Elevation"
14.) "Beautiful Day"

And with that, rehearsal seemed to come to an end. (Thanks to Bjorn and Vid for the live streams.) U2's expected to do a final rehearsal on Wednesday. The tour begins Friday!
