'Northside, just across the river...' 'Come with us now down Cedarwood Road...' Night two in Paris.
'Northside just across the river to the Southside That's a long way here All the green and all the gold The hurt you hide, the joy you hold The foolish pride that gets you out the door Up on Cedarwood Road, on Cedarwood Road...'
'Come meet Gavin and Guggi, meet some friends, meet some enemies, here we are on Cedarwood Road...'
Electric Co. was back in the set tonight, bubbling with snatches of other songs ('Send in the Clowns, I Can See For Miles, and Live Forever snippets in TEC.' @u2gigs) while Bono bigged up 'Jazzman' Adam, 'first employer' Larry and 'genius' The Edge.
Ahead of the show, and in advance of #U2onHBO in North America and Canada on Saturday, Adam was on camera on Facebook, musing on his vintage tee-shirt collection. Lot of love for this.
Wendy Wylo Gulock: Adam you are the most adorable fashion icon ever! Love all your fashions! Michelle Marcak: Maybe just go shirtless? or no shirt & a leather jacket? That's pretty punk rock! haha... Love you no matter what you wear Adam Kerry Shumway:Thank you for the behind the scenes posts. It's nice to see these peeks into our favorite boys! I could listen to Adam talk for hours. Niamh Blonde: It has to be the striped top Adam vivre les bleus! Alana Gee: When in doubt, always Joy Division.
Even after 68 shows, #U2ie is still developing, new ideas or riffs or images appearing every night, as difficult to predict the set list as to guess who might get the call onto the e-stage. Tonight it was Danielle from Italy (@DaNiiu2), complete with MacPhisto horns, 'a beautiful spirit and a dancer.'
''Liberté, égalité, fraternité' You invented it. You invented it!' Bono shouts in Streets and this show as '@KevinS2U put it, 'has GONE OFF!!! #U2Paris Even got a "Yeah, You" out of the man in WOWY! What a night...'
