U2's Amsterdam #2 setlist, 09/09
Gloria rotated back into the setlist for just its sixth performance of tour; it was last played on 26 July 2015 in New York. Amazingly, this is only the second performance of Gloria in Europe in the last 25 years and the first on the continent. Since 9 January 1990 (the last of its five performances on the European leg of Lovetown), Gloria's only other European performance came on 27 June 2005. Every other performance of Gloria since the end of Lovetown has been in the US - eighteen on Vertigo and the first five this tour.
Speaking of songs from October, its the title track has now become a regular fixture of the tour. With both Gloria and October in the setlist, that means tonight is just the second show since 11 November 1989 to feature two songs from the October album - the other was 19 July 2015. The last European show to feature two October songs was 3 August 1987 in Birmingham.
During the E stage rotational slots, Desire and Angel Of Harlem both came back into the set after missing one show each. A fan was brought on stage to play guitar during Angel Of Harlem, and he was allowed to keep Edge's guitar. When he was brought on stage, Bono was joking with the crowd that he has "nothing against tall people - I just wouldn't have one in the band!" At the end of Angel Of Harlem, Bono began snippeting Into The Mystic but stopped because the crowd was still singing the chorus of Angel so loudly.
To wrap up proceedings, I Still Haven't Found came back into the setlist. It too had been absent for a single show.
