U2's Los Angeles #2 setlist 27/05

Tonight, U2 played the second of five concerts in Inglewood, California. The band played with heavy hearts, as longtime tour manager Dennis Sheehan died of a suspected heart attack in his Los Angeles hotel room after last night's show. Bono briefly spoke of Sheehan's history with the band before Iris. (We at U2gigs would also like to send our condolences to Dennis Sheehan's friends and family.)

In tribute to Sheehan, this show ended with the tour debut of 40. The audience maintained the tradition of singing a lengthy refrain of "how long to sing this song?" after the band left the stage. 40 is the second song from War to be performed this tour, and has only been played once since 20 February 2006 - as the final song of the final 360 Tour show on 30 July 2011. Out Of Control and Angel Of Harlem returned to the set after missing one show, and Bad and Desire returned after missing two shows. Bad's performance was spontaneous; there was no song listed on the printed setlist between Beautiful Day and With Or Without You. Desire and Angel Of Harlem were played at the same show for the first time since 30 November 2006 - subsequently, when they have been performed, they have rotated with each other between shows for the same setlist position.

Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin, a big U2 fan (and former U2 frontman for one night!) was also spotted enjoying the show from the general admission pit. The full setlist was:

  1. The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
  2. Out Of Control
  3. Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? (snippet) / Vertigo
  4. I Will Follow
  5. Iris (Hold Me Close)
  6. Cedarwood Road
  7. Song For Someone
  8. Sunday Bloody Sunday

U2's Los Angeles #1 setlist, 26/05

Tonight, U2 played the first of five concerts in Inglewood, California - and first of six in the Los Angeles area, counting the Roxy show for KROQ contest winners. A handful of celebrities, such as Sean Penn and Cindy Crawford, made the short trek from Hollywood to see the show, as well.

The setlist featured a few changes from the previous show in Phoenix. California made just its second appearance on tour, returning after an absence of four shows. It made its tour debut on 15 May 2015 in Vancouver, when it was played on the main stage during the first set; this time it was played on the E stage during the second set. Three other songs returned after an absence of one show: City Of Blinding Lights, Sweetest Thing, and The Electric Co. Sweetest Thing was performed with a Bono impersonator from the crowd, Joseph Hier of the tribute band Hollywood U2. Like the previous show, tonight ended with One, meaning that this is the first time One has appeared at consecutive concerts this tour.

Patti Smith's People Have The Power, which was first used as intro music for the two shows in Phoenix, retained that role today. Same Love by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, which was played as outro music at the second Phoenix show, was used to end tonight's show too. During Pride and Beautiful Day, Bono again referred with evident joy and satisfaction to the successful referendum in Ireland for marriage equality.

The full setlist was:

  1. The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
  2. The Electric Co. / Send In The Clowns (snippet) / I Can See For Miles (snippet)
  3. Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? (snippet) / Vertigo
  4. I Will Follow
  5. Iris (Hold Me Close)
  6. Cedarwood Road
  7. Song For Someone
  8. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  9. Raised By Wolves / Psalm 23 (snippet)
  10. Until The End Of The World
  11. (Intermission)
  12. Invisible
  13. Even Better Than The Real Thing
  14. Mysterious Ways / Burning Down The House (snippet) / Young Americans (snippet)
  15. California (There Is No End To Love) / God Only Knows (snippet)
  16. Sweetest Thing
  17. Every Breaking Wave
  18. Bullet The Blue Sky / 19 (snippet)
  19. The Hands That Built America (snippet) / Pride (In The Name Of Love)
  20. Beautiful Day / I Remember You (snippet)
  21. With Or Without You

  22. Encore(s):
  23. City Of Blinding Lights
  24. Mother And Child Reunion (snippet) / Where The Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  25. One / Invisible (snippet)

U2's Phoenix #2 setlist, 23/05

Tonight, U2 performed their second of two shows in Phoenix. It is not common for U2 to play Arizona more than once on a single leg: in 1987, they opened the Joshua Tree Tour will three shows in the state (two in Tempe, one in Tucson) and closed it with two more back in Tempe, but since then the only other tour leg to feature two Arizona shows is the first leg of the Vertigo Tour in 2005. If you missed the news from the first show, you can view the setlist and check out our videos.

During the show Bono made multiple allusions to Ireland's successful vote for marriage equality at a national referendum. During Pride, he made a speech announcing that "on this very day we have true equality in Ireland", described the yes vote as acknowledging "love is the highest law in the land", and changed one lyric to "they cannot take your gay pride". The intro of Beautiful Day began with a declaration that "yes it's a beautiful day alright!" and the song ended with a snippet of One's lyrics that "love is a temple, love the higher law". The outro music at the end of the concert was Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

There were a few changes to the set from last night. One returned after missing one show; Out Of Control, Angel Of Harlem, and When Love Comes To Town all returned after missing the past two shows; and Miracle Drug ended an absence of three shows to enjoy its second performance of the tour. After last night had 25 songs, the most of the tour so far, tonight had a total of 23, the equal fewest with the first night in San Jose. Early in the show, Larry accidentally started Vertigo a song early and played its drum intro while the rest of the band launched into Out Of Control, hence the snippet noted in the set below. At the end of Raised By Wolves, Bono is now tearing up books and throwing them to the crowd. This inspired a snippet of "out damned spots!" from Macbeth during the outro of Until The End Of The World.

The full setlist was:

  1. The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
  2. Vertigo (snippet) / Out Of Control
  3. Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? (snippet) / Vertigo
  4. I Will Follow
  5. Iris (Hold Me Close)
  6. Cedarwood Road
  7. Song For Someone
  8. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  9. Raised By Wolves / Psalm 23 (snippet)
  10. Until The End Of The World / Macbeth Act 5 Scene 1 (snippet)
  11. (Intermission)
  12. Invisible
  13. Even Better Than The Real Thing
  14. Mysterious Ways / Young Americans (snippet)
  15. Angel Of Harlem
  16. When Love Comes To Town
  17. Every Breaking Wave
  18. Bullet The Blue Sky / Whole Lotta Love (snippet) / 19 (snippet)
  19. The Hands That Built America (snippet) / Pride (In The Name Of Love)
  20. Beautiful Day / One (snippet)
  21. With Or Without You

  22. Encore(s):
  23. Miracle Drug
  24. Mother And Child Reunion (snippet) / Where The Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  25. One
