Today, U2 performed in Santiago, at the same venue as their three previous Chilean concerts.
Before the show there was a soundcheck of New Year's Day, Mysterious Ways, and Where the Streets Have No Name. Despite being soundchecked before multiple Latin American dates this month, the most recent performance of Mysterious Ways remains that in Minneapolis on 8 September.
Today's show featured the second performance of One Tree Hill in Chile; the lyric "Jara sang, his song a weapon" refers to Chilean activist Victor Jara, who was murdered in the days after the Chilean coup of 11 September 1973. It was previously performed on 25 March 2011 with Francisca Valenzuela—with today's performance a chance to make right how rough that 2011 version was!
Bono revisited the coup and the challenges of Chile's past in his speech before One. He praised Chileans for harnessing the pain of the past to build a better future.
