We have videos from U2's second night in Phoenix thanks to our friends Stefan and Frank. If you haven't caught up on the setlist or show information, you can do so here.

Stefan and Frank have taken some incredible footage in Vancouver, San Jose, and Phoenix. Unfortunately, this is the end of their North American adventure, so we would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincerest thanks to them for such great contributions that have brought excitement and pleasure to many fans worldwide. But never fear: they will be back behind the camera during the European leg, as will our webmaster Matthias. Can't wait!

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

Videos of U2 in Phoenix, 22/05

Our friends Stefan and Frank have many videos to share from U2's first concert in Phoenix. You can catch up on the show's setlist here.

Let's begin with the big surprise of the night - the first live performance of In God's Country in over thirteen years.



We have thirteen more songs from the show, and they are in their setlist order below. They include Mysterious Ways and Desire with the three sisters on stage. See the end of the article for a bonus video of Bono meeting fans before the show.

U2's Phoenix #1 setlist, 22/05

Today, U2 performed the first of two shows in Phoenix, Arizona. At the four previous shows, the intro music was Beat On The Brat by Ramones (containing samples of Discotheque and Even Better Than The Real Thing), but tonight it was replaced by Patti Smith's People Have The Power.

The setlist was almost identical to the previous show, 19 May in San Jose. There was, however, one big addition: In God's Country was performed for the first time since 2 December 2001, assisted by a member of the crowd on guitar. That's a gap of 13 years, 5 months, and 20 days between performances. Since the end of the Joshua Tree Tour in December 1987, In God's Country has only been performed eight times: four early on Lovetown in 1989 (including one show when it was a surprise opener), three late on Elevation in 2001, and now tonight. It was not on the printed setlist and appeared as part of a fun and loose section of the second set, during which Bono also brought three sisters on stage for Mysterious Ways and Desire.

The otherwise unchanged nature of the setlist meant that San Jose's big surprise, The Electric Co., stuck around for a second performance, and Bad also remained near the end of the second set. This time Bad was actually on the printed setlist. Performances of Bad at consecutive shows have been rare in recent years. On 360 it was done at consecutive shows just once - its first two appearances on 21 and 24 July 2009.

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) / Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere (snippet)
  3. Vertigo / God Save The Queen (Sex Pistols) (snippet)
  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 / Young Americans (snippet)
  15. Desire
  16. In God's Country
  17. Sweetest Thing
  18. Every Breaking Wave
  19. Bullet The Blue Sky / America (snippet) / 19 (snippet)
  20. The Hands That Built America (snippet) / Pride (In The Name Of Love)
  21. Beautiful Day / Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (snippet)
  22. Bad / Moment of Surrender (snippet)
  23. With Or Without You

  24. Encore(s):
  25. City Of Blinding Lights
  26. Mother And Child Reunion (snippet) / Where The Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  27. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

Videos of U2 in San Jose, 19/05

This article is a U2gigs.com milestone: it's our the 1,000th article - or at least the 1,000th since we ceased to be Elevation-Tour.com and became U2-Vertigo-Tour.com, the predecessor to U2gigs. We're pleased that this milestone includes concert videos, for which we have justly earned a reputation (something I think I am allowed to say since I'm the setlistorian, can't hold a video camera still to save myself, and am consistently impressed with the work of my friends behind the viewfinder). I personally am delighted that one of these videos is of the awesome first performance of The Electric Co. in 9 years, 3 months, and 7 days.

You can catch up on the full setlist here. We have seven videos thanks to our friends Stefan and Frank, and more will be added to this article once they are uploaded. Watch them below:
