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.

U2's Rome #2 setlist, 16/07/17

Today, U2 performed their second of two shows in Rome. The last time—and, in fact, the only other time—they played two gigs on the same tour in this city was way back on 6 and 7 July 1993. U2 have visited Rome on six different tours, and every time they have played large outdoor venues; the only time they've done a different sort of venue in Rome was for a TV appearance promoting All That You Can't Leave Behind on 25 October 2000.

The big setlist news is that A Sort of Homecoming returned after a month-and-a-half absence. It was last played on 4 June in Chicago, and missed the second nights in both East Rutherford and London. This is the first time A Sort of Homecoming has been played on the European continent since 30 May 1987 in a different Italian city, Modena. Its only European performance in the intervening thirty years was on the island of Ireland on 25 August 2001.

ASOH's return means that Bad's streak of consecutive shows ended on fifteen. That was the most shows it has been played at in a row since it appeared at all 57 shows of the first two legs of the ZooTV Tour in 1992.

One other song returned to the setlist tonight after a much shorter absence. Mysterious Ways was restored to the encore after missing the previous night.

The full setlist was:

  1. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  2. New Year's Day
  3. A Sort Of Homecoming
  4. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
  5. Where The Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  6. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  7. With Or Without You
  8. Bullet The Blue Sky
  9. Running To Stand Still / Hallelujah (snippet)
  10. Red Hill Mining Town
  11. In God's Country
  12. Trip Through Your Wires
  13. One Tree Hill
  14. Exit / Wise Blood (snippet) / Eeny Meeny Miny Moe (snippet)
  15. Mothers Of The Disappeared

  16. encore(s):
  17. Miss Sarajevo
  18. Beautiful Day / Starman (snippet)
  19. Elevation
  20. Vertigo / Live Forever (snippet)
  21. Miss You (snippet) / Mysterious Ways
  22. Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
  23. One / Hear Us Coming (snippet)

U2's Rome #1 setlist, 15/07/17

Today, U2 performed the first of two shows in Italy's capital city. This is their first show in Rome since 8 October 2010, the last European show of the 360 Tour; their two Italian shows in 2015 were both in Turin.

The setlist diverged in one regard from that played three days ago in Berlin: Mysterious Ways was not played, with unreleased song The Little Things That Give You Away returning to the setlist as the show's closer. Little Things had missed the previous two gigs.

U2Place.com organised a flash mob in the stands during With or Without You, displaying "30" on one side and a Joshua Tree logo on the other. There was plenty of activity in the crowd tonight, as there was also a wedding in the stands before the show.

At the start of Bad, Bono spoke about the English Romantic poet John Keats being his hero. Keats is buried in Rome, and in his speech Bono quoted the last two lines of "Ode on a Grecian Urn".

Bono has slightly modified how he performs One. At both this show and in Berlin, he has let the crowd sing some of the first verse of the song, whereas at previous shows this tour he has sang every line. This recalls, though not to the same extent, what he did on the Innocence + Experience Tour, when he let the crowd sing the opening verses.
