U2 Chile Set List

U2 played a set on March 25, 2011 in Santiago, Chile at the National Stadium.

Set was unusual in that it featured The Johusa Tree's One Tree Hill being played. Usually only played in NZ, the the songs reference to Chilean poet Victor Jara Jara, who was murdered in Santiago in 1973 seems reason enough to play the song.

Chile Set List: Beautiful Day - Sgt. Pepper's, I Will Follow, Get On Your Boots, Magnificent, Mysterious Ways, Elevation, Until the End of the World - Anthem, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - I Want to Know What Love Is, One Tree Hill, Pride, In A Little While, Miss Sarajevo, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, I'll Go Crazy (remix) - Two Tribes, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Scarlet, Walk On - You'll Never Walk Alone

Set Encore: One, Mothers of the Disappeared - Where the Streets Have No Name - All You Need Is Love, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me, With or Without You, Moment of Surrender.

Have you heard the rumours that U2's new album is called Cyber Love?

This is a Call


Dave Grohl's first words to a sold-out Auckland Town Hall last night really said it all.

"We are honoured to be playing here tonight for the people of Christchurch," he told the sold out Town Hall crowd. "Get ready, it's going to be a long night."

And he wasn't wrong, in all the best possible ways - the quickfire fundraising show for Christchurch delivered all he promised and more.

The band wasted no time getting down to business, powering through their new album Wasting Light almost without pausing for a breath.

And just like the millenium, Kiwis get everything first - the album isn't released until April 12, so the 2300 fans lucky enough to witness the show were officially among the first in the world to hear the new material.

Of course, when bands play new songs, it can be a bit awkward. The band is often learning how to play the new material live, the fans just want to hear the old stuff and it can all go very, very wrong.

But, as drummer Taylor Hawkins mentioned earlier on in the afternoon, the new album feels "more like a Foo Fighters album" than almost anything else they've done, and it shows.

The band was as tight as ever and they looked fresh and excited - not bad for a bunch of blokes with seven studio albums under their collective belts and a 16-year career behind them.

And even without having heard most of the songs before, the crowd were more than happy - the Foos were playing. Here. And they sounded great.

More importantly, though, they were doing what they do best - big guitars, big drums and big vocals, but this time around it was a small and intimate venue that was being shown the royal Foo Fighter treatment.

The Town Hall really should get more shows - it's a great little venue with a whole lot of atmosphere.

Once Wasting Light was done and dusted, the band cranked through a 20-odd-song best-of set. All the favourites were there - Big Me, Times Like These and a crowd scream-along version of My Hero dedicated to the people of Christchurch.

But the highlight of the night had to be Grohl abandoning the stage during Stacked Actors, turning the venue's balcony into his own personal runway, working his way around the room posing for photos (yes, Rhys Darby, we saw you get your sneaky camera out), serenading babies and getting a pash from one rather opportunistic, and very happy fan.

There is something very comforting and familiar about seeing Dave Grohl's shaggy head bouncing and swaying away on stage, watching him scull a beer, listening to him and his mates play songs that seem to be built into our national consciousness.

But tonight really was all about Christchurch. The Foo Fighters certainly showed how much New Zealand means to them and from the crowd reaction, it was more than appreciated.

Let's hope they are back soon under happier circumstances.

Beady Eye Debut Set List

Beady Eye made their live debut in Glasgow, Scotland on March 3.  

The post-Oasis band played their new tunes a  packed and fan friendly crowd at the Glasgow's Barrowlands venue.

Beady Eye's first song ever played live to a public crowd was 'Four Letter Word', played shortly after 9pm (GMT). They followed it with a set list made up largely of tracks from their new album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding'. Before playing debut single 'Bring The Light', Liam Gallagher chatted to the crowd, saying: "Right, I reckon it's time to get off the fence, yeah? Because I've seen a few of you sitting on it." This was possibly a reference to people passing judgement on the band before they'd even played a set.

The band ended their set list with their cover of World Of Twist's 'Sons Of The Stage'. Gallagher thanked the crowd for "coming along and checking it out" before leaving the stage to large applause.

Beady Eye Set List

'Four Letter Word'
'Beatles And Stones'
'For Anyone'
'The Roller'
'Wind Up Dream'
'Bring The Light'
'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise'
'Kill For A Dream'
'Three Ring Circus'
'Man Of Misery'
