U2's Tokyo #1 and #2 setlists and videos, 4/12/19 and 5/12/19

U2 performed two concerts at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Tokyo, on 4 and 5 December. This arena is one of the biggest in the world, in size being equivalent to many stadiums.

U2 had not performed in Japan since 4 December 2006, a show that was also at this venue. This gap, of exactly 13 years to the day, is by far U2's longest absence from Japan since they first visited the country in 1983. All other gaps have been between 4 and 8.5 years.

At the first show, Angel of Harlem and Every Breaking Wave returned to the setlist after missing the previous gig in Singapore.

At the second show, those two songs vacated their positions and Desire and You're the Best Thing were performed instead.

There was one other setlist alteration between the two shows, and it was a big surprise: Gloria made its tour debut at the second show, replacing I Will Follow. Its most recent performance was on 13 November 2018, and this is its first appearance on the Joshua Tree Tours of 2017 and 2019. It is the first song from October to appear on either tour.


U2 had not performed Gloria in Japan since 1 December 1989. If we take the Saitama Super Arena to be a de facto stadium, this is just its second performance in a stadium since 11 November 1989 in Auckland; the other instance was on 27 June 2005 in Dublin.

At the end of Gloria, Bono snippeted two songs of the same name by Van Morrison and Patti Smith. This recalls a habit of last year's performances.

U2's Singapore #2 setlist and videos, 01/12/19

U2's second show in Singapore featured three setlist changes from night one.

The band performed Desire for the second time this tour and You're the Best Thing for the third time, replacing Angel of Harlem and Every Breaking Wave respectively. Love Is Bigger also returned to the setlist after missing yesterday's show, taking the length of the gig to 25 songs.


At the end of Mothers of the Disappeared, Bono added the El Pueblo Vencerá chant. He did this during some performances on the 2017 Joshua Tree Tour, but this is the first time in 2019.

Singapore is the first—and, for the time being, will remain the only—Asian city outside Japan in which U2 have performed two concerts on the same tour. Two Japanese cities can claim that honour. On multiple tours, U2 have performed two or more shows in Tokyo (including Saitama in the greater Tokyo area). And on the first leg of Lovetown, U2 performed three shows in Osaka; other tours have visited that city, but only for one show.

The full setlist was:

  1. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  2. I Will Follow
  3. New Year's Day
  4. Bad / Heroes (snippet)
  5. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  6. Where the Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  7. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  8. With or Without You
  9. Bullet the Blue Sky
  10. Running To Stand Still
  11. Red Hill Mining Town
  12. In God's Country
  13. Trip Through Your Wires
  14. One Tree Hill
  15. Exit / Wise Blood (snippet) / Eeny Meeny Miny Moe (snippet)
  16. Mothers Of The Disappeared / El Pueblo Vencera (snippet)
  17. Desire / Not Fade Away (snippet)

  18. encore(s):
  19. Elevation
  20. Take Me To The River (snippet) / Vertigo / Rebel Rebel (snippet)
  21. Even Better Than The Real Thing
  22. You're The Best Thing About Me
  23. Beautiful Day / One (snippet)
  24. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
  25. Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way / All You Need Is Love (snippet) / One (snippet)
  26. One

U2's Singapore #1 setlist and videos, 30/11/19

U2 performed their very first show in Singapore on 30 November. We have both a report and videos from the show.


Singapore is the first country U2 have visited in southeast Asia, and just the third anywhere in Asia—they have played Japan on multiple tours, and once in Israel on 30 September 1997. Their show on 6 September 2010 in Istanbul took place on the European side of the Bosphorus Strait, not the Asian side.

U2 made tentative plans to perform here on 16 March 1998 on the Popmart Tour, but this did not come to pass. Instead, on that date they performed in Cape Town, South Africa. During Bad's introduction, Bono alluded to this. He snippeted a line from New Year's Day, which had just been performed in full, and then remarked that it has taken 42 years for U2 to get to Singapore (if we count from the band's formation, as Bono appears to be doing, then it's actually a little over 43 years). He joked that this would, therefore, be U2's best show ever in Singapore.

The setlist was the same as that played three days ago in Perth, with one difference: Love Is Bigger was not performed. This is the third show it has missed on the current tour.

Exit contained a notable snippet: it ended with Van Morrison's Gloria, a snippet often associated with Exit thanks to its inclusion on the Rattle and Hum movie. Bono has snippeted Gloria in a number of songs over the years, most recently in U2's own song titled Gloria on 13 November 2018, but he had not previously sung it in Exit on either the 2017 or 2019 Joshua Tree Tours. The last time he sang it in Exit was 14 October 1989.

The full setlist was:

  1. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  2. I Will Follow
  3. New Year's Day
  4. New Year's Day (snippet) / Bad / Run (snippet)
  5. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  6. Where the Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  7. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  8. With or Without You
  9. Bullet the Blue Sky / The Star-Spangled Banner (snippet) / America (snippet)
  10. Running To Stand Still
  11. Red Hill Mining Town
  12. In God's Country
  13. Trip Through Your Wires
  14. One Tree Hill
  15. Exit / Wise Blood (snippet) / Eeny Meeny Miny Moe (snippet) / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet)
  16. Mothers Of The Disappeared
  17. Angel of Harlem / Sunday Bloody Sunday (snippet)

  18. encore(s):
  19. Elevation
  20. Vertigo / It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It) (snippet) / I Love Rock 'n' Roll (snippet)
  21. Even Better Than The Real Thing
  22. Every Breaking Wave
  23. Beautiful Day
  24. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
  25. One / Invisible (snippet)

U2's Perth setlist, 27/11/19

U2 performed in Perth on Wednesday. It was the last Australian show of the current tour, which is the first U2 tour since 1989 to visit both Perth and Adelaide. Two intervening tours only went to Adelaide (1993 and 2006), and two only went to Perth (1998 and 2010).

All five U2 shows in Perth in the 1980s were at the Entertainment Centre, while all three subsequent visits have been in different venues. This was U2's first time playing the rather new Optus Stadium. In terms of stadium venues as opposed to arenas, Perth is the only Australian city where U2 have never performed at the same stadium on different tours. (You might think this is also true elsewhere, but it is not. Take the list of shows in Melbourne, for example; the three most recent tours have all visited Docklands Stadium, but under different sponsor names.)

The setlist featured three changes from U2's most recent show in Sydney. Angel of Harlem and Every Breaking Wave both returned to the set after missing one show. Love Is Bigger returned after missing two, which means that Sydney remains the only city on the current tour to miss out on that song so far.

Bad featured a lengthy snippet of the David Bowie song Heroes. This will be familiar to those of you who pay attention to snippets, as Bono inserted it into Bad at many European and Latin American shows in 2017.

Also speaking of snippets, there was a brief reference to the Zooropa song Daddy's Gonna Pay at the start of Vertigo, a repeat of something Bono did in Adelaide. The song seems to have been on his mind a bit recently, as it also made short appearances in Vertigo four times late last year.

The full setlist was:

  1. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  2. I Will Follow
  3. New Year's Day
  4. Bad / Heroes (snippet)
  5. Pride (In the Name of Love)
  6. Where the Streets Have No Name / California (There Is No End To Love) (snippet)
  7. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  8. With or Without You
  9. Bullet the Blue Sky / The Star-Spangled Banner (snippet) / America (snippet)
  10. Running To Stand Still
  11. Red Hill Mining Town
  12. In God's Country
  13. Trip Through Your Wires
  14. One Tree Hill
  15. Exit / Wise Blood (snippet) / Eeny Meeny Miny Moe (snippet)
  16. Mothers Of The Disappeared
  17. Angel of Harlem

  18. encore(s):
  19. Elevation
  20. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car (snippet) / Vertigo / Rebel Rebel (snippet) / It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It) (snippet)
  21. Even Better Than The Real Thing
  22. Every Breaking Wave
  23. Beautiful Day
  24. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
  25. Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way
  26. One / Invisible (snippet)
