(Spoilers) Day 7: U2's Joshua Tree 2017 Tour rehearsals in Vancouver

@U2, May 10, 2017
By: Matt McGee

 

U2 was back inside BC Place stadium on Wednesday for what's expected to be the band's final rehearsal before The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 begins on Friday. Band members began arriving at about 4:30 PM PT, and only Bono stopped to visit with fans and sign autographs before heading inside. Today's his 57th birthday, and the gathered crowd didn't miss the opportunity to give him birthday cards, signs and more in honor of his special day.

Shortly after Bono went inside, fans heard several songs being practiced -- again, we're not 100 percent sure if this was the band playing, their stage techs, or even playback from earlier rehearsals. In any case, here's what fans heard in the afternoon:

"Pride"
"Where The Streets Have No Name"
"Beautiful Day"
"Elevation"
"Ultraviolet"
"One"
"In God's Country"
"Red Hill Mining Town" (instrumental)

After several hours of quiet, the full rehearsal began a little before 9:00 PM PT and saw U2 playing a similar set of songs to what they've played in previous rehearsals:

1.) "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
2.) "New Year's Day"
3.) "A Sort Of Homecoming"
4.) "MLK"
5.) "Pride"
6.) "Where The Streets Have No Name"
7.) "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"
8.) "With Or Without You"
9.) "Bullet The Blue Sky"
10.) "Running To Stand Still"
11.) "Red Hill Mining Town"
12.) "In God's Country"
13.) "Trip Through Your Wires"
14.) "One Tree Hill"
15.) "Exit"
16.) "Mothers Of The Disappeared" (with "El Pueblo Vencera")
17.) "Beautiful Day"
18.) "Elevation"
19.) "Ultraviolet"
20.) "One"
21.) "Miss Sarajevo"

At this point, the stadium's public address system went quiet, while some fans thought they could hear the band continuing to practice inside.
