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:

U2's San Jose #2 setlist, 19/05

Tonight, U2 performed their second of two shows in San Jose. If you haven't caught up on the first night's proceedings, you can read the setlist in this article and check out our videos here.

There were a few changes tonight, including a big surprise early in the setlist. U2 played a scintillating version of The Electric Co., its first live performance since 12 February 2006. This means the IE Tour is only the second tour on which it has appeared since the end of the Joshua Tree Tour in 1987.

Desire and Sweetest Thing returned to the set after missing the previous two shows. Bad and One returned after missing one show. Bad was not on the original set; like in Vancouver, it contained a snippet of Moment Of Surrender. That snippet is the only representation of U2's previous album, No Line On The Horizon, so far this tour. The only previous U2 album to not have a song performed live on the second tour for which it was availabe is Zooropa, which went without representation on Popmart.

Before the show, a photo of the setlist from the soundboard cue sheet leaked (and is corroborated by a post-show picture of the printed setlist). U2 deviated from it by performing Bad and not doing The Troubles. That soundboard picture also shows a couple of other potential setlist options that were not chosen tonight, and a second photo taken at the end of the gig contains a lengthy list of extra tracks. All of the songs listed have either been performed already on tour or are known to have been rehearsed - except, that is, for one big surprise: Numb. Could it be in the mix for future shows?

The setlist tonight was:

  1. The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
  2. The Electric Co. / Send In The Clowns (snippet) / I Can See For Miles (snippet) / Wonderwall (snippet)
  3. Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? (snippet) / 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 / 1969 (snippet) / Love Me Do (snippet)
  16. Sweetest Thing
  17. Every Breaking Wave
  18. Bullet The Blue Sky / America (snippet) / 19 (snippet)
  19. The Hands That Built America (snippet) / Pride (In The Name Of Love)
  20. Beautiful Day / I Remember You (snippet)
  21. Into The Mystic (snippet) / Bad / Moment of Surrender (snippet)
  22. With Or Without You

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

U2's San Jose #1 setlist, 18/05

Today, U2 headed south from Vancouver to the second city of the Innocence + Experience Tour, San Jose. A photograph of the printed setlist leaked online before the gig began. U2 deviated from it in two places. The Troubles, listed between Beautiful Day and With Or Without You, was not performed, while the order of When Love Comes To Town and Angel Of Harlem was swapped.

The first set was the same as the first night in Vancouver, which meant that Out Of Control returned to the mix and California, surprisingly given the location of tonight's show, was not played. The second set, however, contained the same songs as night two in Vancouver. This was a somewhat rare back-to-back performance of Angel Of Harlem (it appeared at consecutive shows just once on the 360 Tour), and it means that When Love Comes To Town - played in Vancouver for the first time in almost 22 years - has got to stick around a little longer. Meanwhile, in the encore, One was dropped for only the second regular tour gig ever since its live debut in February 1992, allowing for I Still Haven't Found to return to the setlist.

Bono was in good humour tonight. Before Iris he joked with the rest of the band. He welcomed the audience to the first night of U2's US adventure and began it with "a deep philosophical question: can you still experience innocence after all these years?" He decided not to put the question to Edge, joking that in light of Edge's recent stage fall he shouldn't be asked anything complicated. Bono then asked Adam how he feels about being a recently married man, to which Adam said that "I feel like a natural woman".

The full setlist was:

  1. The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)
  2. Out Of Control
  3. Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? (snippet) / Vertigo / God Save The Queen (Sex Pistols) (snippet)
  4. I Will Follow
  5. Mofo (snippet) / Iris (Hold Me Close)
  6. Cedarwood Road
  7. Song For Someone
  8. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  9. Raised By Wolves
  10. Until The End Of The World / Ziggy Stardust (snippet)
  11. (Intermission)
  12. Invisible
  13. Even Better Than The Real Thing
  14. Mysterious Ways / Burning Down The House (snippet) / Young Americans (snippet)
  15. When Love Comes To Town
  16. Angel Of Harlem
  17. Every Breaking Wave
  18. Bullet The Blue Sky / America (snippet) / 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) / California Dreamin' (snippet)
  25. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
