Spain: U2 arrives into Barcelona like a freight train rolling in with a massive thunder to waken the masses.  The first of four shows set the tone for the next few days.  The boys did run a couple of numbers thru song check however the set remains tight.

Consider the amount of technical work that has to go into adding or removing a song from the list. Yes at this point is all pre loaded into the systems however the set list does require couple of changes now and again. "One"  closes out the evening and "Sweetest Thing" was placed in rotation after sitting out a couple of shows.

Bona nit Barcelona!’, shouted U2’ leader, ‘Bono’, to the nearly 17,900 people who filled Palau Sant Jordi. All the shows have been sold out for months.  Rocktober is in full swing for the boys.

Remember Barcelona ?

Well its seems they remember U2. City hall says rock band U2 has paid a fine of euro18,000 ($22,000) for playing too long and too loudly during rehearsals in the Spanish city last year.

A spokeswoman said the Irish group was penalized for rehearsing until midnight: two hours over the scheduled time and at sound levels above those set by authorities prior to a concert in Barcelona in June 2009.

The fine followed a complaint by residents near Barcelona soccer club’s Camp Nou stadium, where the concert was staged.

The spokeswoman said the city was now studying fining Colombian singer Shakira for recording a video in the city without a permit, dancing in a fountain and riding a motorbike without a helmet.

The official was speaking on condition of anonymity in keeping with city hall policy.

Ah hello Barcelona its Rock and Roll what did you expect ? Face it its a little late to pass a fine forward.

25th Anniversay Editions ?

U2 will be releasing a 25th anniversary edition of The Unforgettable Fire later this year. According to, a plastic bag found at one of the Camp Nou merchandising stands had this printed on the outside: Coming October 2009 The Unforgettable Fire 25th Anniversary Edition. The bag also has a photo of an Unforgettable Fire box set similar in size to The Joshua Tree box set released in 2007.

U2 played their second night of the 360 tour in Barcelona.

U2 played their second night of the 360 tour in Barcelona. From what we have heard less people in queue( we are guessing it was because of the heat) and getting to the front of the stage was easier. The sound check included Electrical Storm and both the remix and album versions of Crazy Tonight. Reports came in that 30 minutes before the show there is no sight of Bono’s monitor.

It quickly becomes apparent U2 have come to ROCK. Surprise after surprise emerges from the stage: Desire, Party Girl and the big fan favourite ‘Electrical Storm’ sees its live debut. Then they really put the crazy in Crazy Tonight, playing *BOTH* the remix and the album version. The album version, which came during the second encore, was filmed. Perhaps a video for its single release.
