Today, U2 performed their second of four shows in São Paulo.
Bad remained in the pre-Joshua Tree part of the setlist. Bono sang a very long snippet of Antônio Carlos Jobim's song Waters of March in the spot where he has usually done America or Heroes. During Beautiful Day, Bono snippeted another notable Brazilian song: Mas Que Nada, originally written by Jorge Ben and then popularised further by Sérgio Mendes.
During I Still Haven't Found, Bono modified the "church not made with hands" shout-out to: "Take it to church now! The church of Neymar! A church not made with... feet." Like the first night in São Paulo, Bono referred to Brazil's current debate about art censorship at the start of Mothers of the Disappeared, remarking that "censorship, you are not going back, Brazil".
Apart from some different snippets, the setlist was identical to that played at the previous show. This is the first time U2 have performed identical setlists at two shows in the same city on the current tour.
