Band captured in soundcheck by fans
Footage of U2 rehearsing a new song has surfaced online.
The short film was captured by fans camping out near the gates of the Stadio Olimpico di Torino in Italy, where the group are rehearsing ahead of their first gig of 2010 on Friday (August 6).
The show will be the band’s first since frontman Bono underwent back surgery, inadvertently forcing them to cancel a number of US shows as well as their headline slot at Glastonbury.
As U2Tours.com reports, Bono and co have also been heard playing a number of other songs including ‘Get On Your Boots’, ‘Magnificent’ and ‘Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me’ during soundchecks. The latter song did not appear on any of the band’s setlists during the first part of the tour last year.
