U2's Dublin #4 setlist, 10/11/18

Today U2 performed their last of four concerts in Dublin.

The notable addition to tonight's setlist was Landlady. This is just the third time it has ever been performed, following its two appearances in Milan almost a month ago on 12 and 16 October.

Dirty Day, the big tour debutant from yesterday's show, remained in the set. This is its twelfth live performance ever; the two performances this week are its only concert appearances since 1993. If you haven't yet seen footage, the song has been reimagined as a tribute to the band's fathers with lengthy spoken-word sections by Bono; we filmed two angles yesterday and these can be watched here.

Gloria also remained in the set after being performed yesterday. The last time it was played on consecutive nights in the same city was half a year ago, on 11 and 12 May 2018 in Las Vegas. Since then it has been played at consecutive concerts in different cities and at non-consecutive concerts in the same city, but not two consecutive shows in the same city.

The printed setlist had a curious addition after 13: "Miraculous Metal (Terryworld)". Terryworld refers to Terry Lawless, U2's keyboard wizard who works below stage. Bono hummed the melody of The Miracle at the end of 13, which he has done at the previous two shows, and Miraculous Metal proved to be a synthesised accompaniment to this snippet.

The inclusion of both Dirty Day and Landlady means that tonight's show got to 24 songs. It is only the second show on the European leg of this tour to have so many songs, the other such instance being 21 September in Madrid.

The full setlist was:

  1. The Blackout
  2. Lights Of Home
  3. I Will Follow
  4. Gloria / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet) / Patti Smith's Gloria (snippet)
  5. Beautiful Day / Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (snippet)
  6. Dirty Day
  7. Zoo Station
  8. The Fly
  9. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
  10. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
  11. (Intermission - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me)
  12. Elevation
  13. Vertigo / It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It) (snippet)
  14. Even Better Than The Real Thing Fish Out of Water Mix
  15. Hall of Mirrors (snippet) / Acrobat
  16. The Showman (Little More Better) (snippet) / You're The Best Thing About Me Full band acoustic
  17. Summer Of Love Bono and Edge
  18. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  19. Get Out Of Your Own Way
  20. New Year's Day
  21. City of Blinding Lights

  22. encore(s):
  23. Women of the World (snippet) / Landlady
  24. One
  25. Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way
  26. 13 (There Is A Light) / The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) (snippet)

U2's Dublin #3 setlist, 09/11/18

Today, U2 performed their third of four shows in Dublin.

After being soundchecked on multiple occasions recently, Dirty Day made its tour debut today. This is its first performance since 10 December 1993, a gap of 24 years, 10 months, and 30 days (or exactly 9,100 days), and its eleventh performance ever. It had never before been performed in Europe, and only twice in the Northern Hemisphere—the two performances in Japan in December 1993. The other eight performances came in Australia and New Zealand.

Dirty Day joined fellow Zooropa song Stay in the setlist. Tonight's show, accordingly, is the first set to feature two songs from Zooropa since the final night of the 360 Tour on 30 July 2011. On that occasion, Stay was joined in the set by the album's title track.

The performance of Dirty Day was modified heavily from the album version to serve as a narrative about the band members finding their identity in opposition to their fathers, with Bono speaking through much of the song. The visuals on stage included portraits of their dads. The lyrics sung were the entire first verse from "I don't know you" through to "it was a dirty day", and the lines "from father to son, in one life has begun / a work that's never done, father to son", before cutting straight to the coda of "these days, days, days run away like horses over the hill".

The other setlist change occurred early in the show, with Gloria returning after an absence of one show. The full setlist contained 23 songs, the most songs played at one show for almost a month: 16 October in Milan had 23, and all shows in between then and today have had 22.

The full setlist was:

  1. The Blackout
  2. Lights Of Home
  3. I Will Follow
  4. Gloria / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet) / Patti Smith's Gloria (snippet)
  5. Beautiful Day
  6. Dirty Day
  7. Zoo Station
  8. The Fly
  9. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
  10. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
  11. (Intermission - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me)
  12. Elevation
  13. Vertigo / The Jean Genie (snippet)
  14. Even Better Than The Real Thing Fish Out of Water Mix
  15. Hall of Mirrors (snippet) / Acrobat
  16. The Showman (Little More Better) (snippet) / You're The Best Thing About Me Full band acoustic
  17. Summer Of Love Bono and Edge
  18. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  19. Get Out Of Your Own Way
  20. New Year's Day
  21. City of Blinding Lights

  22. encore(s):
  23. Women of the World (snippet) / One / Invisible (snippet)
  24. Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way
  25. 13 (There Is A Light) / The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) (snippet)

U2's Dublin #2 setlist, 06/11/18

Today, U2 continued their four-night stand in Dublin with their second show at the 3Arena.

All Because of You returned to the setlist after an absence of one show.

Before Zoo Station, Bono acknowledged U2's former manager Paul McGuinness and narrated a story from the band's early days when Edge thought that Adam should manage the band on account of being very persuasive. This included an anecdote of Adam dodging a bus fare by telling the stunned conductor that he wished to pay by cheque.

Bono used the Macphisto speech before Acrobat to take aim at today's midterm elections in the US. He compared Donald Trump to fast food chains and suggested that he is offering Americans a "deluxe Make America Hate Again special" today.

As the band left the stage at the end of 13, Bono walked off humming the melody of The Miracle (of Joey Ramone). This is the first time The Miracle has been referenced live in any way since the end of the Innocence + Experience Tour on 7 December 2015.

The full setlist was:

  1. The Blackout
  2. Lights Of Home
  3. I Will Follow
  4. All Because Of You
  5. Beautiful Day / Rain (snippet)
  6. Zoo Station
  7. The Fly
  8. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
  9. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
  10. (Intermission - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me)
  11. Elevation
  12. Vertigo / The Jean Genie (snippet)
  13. Even Better Than The Real Thing Fish Out of Water Mix
  14. Hall of Mirrors (snippet) / Acrobat
  15. You're The Best Thing About Me Full band acoustic
  16. Summer Of Love Bono and Edge
  17. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  18. Get Out Of Your Own Way
  19. New Year's Day
  20. Ode To Joy (snippet) / City of Blinding Lights

  21. encore(s):
  22. Women of the World (snippet) / One
