U2 lock in a fourth Sao Paulo gig for the Joshua Tree Tour

U2.com had previously announced the Joshua Tree Tour 2017 schedule was complete, but surprise! One more show has been confirmed.

Sao Paulo was already the only city this tour to have three shows. It now gets a fourth, which will take place at Morumbi on 25 October 2017. Our database entry for this show is here.

Tickets will go on sale via ticketsforfun.com.br from 12:01am on 27 July, with a limited number also available from box offices from 10am on the same date.

U2 have never before played four shows on a single tour in any South American city. Nor have they played four shows in any South American country on the same tour. Previously they had maxed out at three in both Argentina and Brazil on the Popmart and 360 Tours, and on Popmart those three Brazilian shows were split across Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

This is, in fact, the first time on a single tour that U2 have played four stadium concerts in any city in the Americas, North or South. The only other city in which U2 have ever played four stadium shows on the same tour is London on the 1993 European leg of ZooTV. Quite a testament indeed to the passion and enthusiasm of Brazil's U2 fans!

U2's Dublin setlist, 22/07/17

Tonight was U2's only hometown jaunt of The Joshua Tree 2017 Tour. The last time they played Dublin just once on a tour was all the way back on 29 June 1985, during the sixth leg of The Unforgettable Fire Tour, subtitled the European Summer Festivals leg. That concert also took place at Croke Park. Discounting those festivals, the last time they played Dublin only once was 26 January 1982 on the third leg of the October Tour, a night that saw the live debut of Tomorrow. U2 have never before played Ireland just once on a tour.

Bad was dedicated to Guckpants Delaney, the Lypton Village name for Andy Rowan. At the end of the song Bono snippeted Simon & Garfunkel's America for the first time this leg. During Streets there was a quadruple flyover by fighter jets, the contrails of each mixing to create the Irish tricolour as they passed over the stadium. Mothers of the Disappeared was played in Ireland for the first time ever, although it made a brief appearance in the past when it was snippeted on 25 July 2009. Amazingly, tonight's performance of Miss Sarajevo (the 183 for the song) was also the first in Ireland. Although a mainstay on both the Vertigo and 360 tours, it joined the set after the Irish concerts on both occasions. This is the longest gap (in both number of performances and time) for a song between debuting live and appearing in Dublin, though if Scarlet is ever performed there it will shatter that record for time.

U2's Barcelona setlist, 18/07/17

Tonight U2 performed in Barcelona, Spain. It comes just over 30 years to the day that they performed in Spain for the first time, 15 July 1987, a date that also saw the live debut of Spanish Eyes. This was their only performance in the country this tour, an uncommon occurance for the band - Elevation and the original Joshua Tree tours are the only other occasions they have performed just once in Spain.

Bad returned to the set after missing one night. Before the song, Bono spoke of his friendship with David Bowie. Bowie's Heroes was duly snippeted at the end of the song. With tonight's performance Running to Stand Still has now been played more times than Even Better Than the Real Thing. Prior to Trip, Bono thanked his friend Reggie for encouraging him to respond to Larry's flier and making sure he attended that first rehearsal. Afterwards he spoke a line from Spanish Eyes; this is the first time it has ever been snippeted.

Some stats we missed at recent concerts: Vertigo passed 40 in the list of times played at Rome 1; it is now the sixteenth most played U2 song. Beautiful Day reached 500 performances and Ultraviolet 200 in Berlin, while With or Without You hit 800 at Rome 2. The most astounding stat we missed is that U2 passed 34 thousand individual song performances over their entire career at Rome 2. Of course, given the number of incomplete and missing early setlists this will have actually occurred quite a few concerts earlier, but the figure is nonetheless staggering to look at.
