U2's Buenos Aires #2 setlist, 11/10/17
Today U2 completed their pair of concerts in the greater Buenos Aires area, in La Plata. On both of their visits to Argentina in 1998 and 2011 U2 played three shows, but like in 2006 they're stopping at two this time.
The setlist tonight was almost identical to that performed last night. Indeed, it seemed like they might be exactly the same, but Bono called for one more—I Will Follow. It has only been played once on this current jaunt through the Americas, almost a month ago in New Orleans on 14 September. This now brings I Will Follow's number of performances on the current tour into double digits. Before playing the song, Bono claimed the band were about to play "our first song on Island Records", and if only they had, for that was in fact 11 O'clock Tick Tock.
At the start of Bad, Bono sang a line of Van Morrison's Into the Mystic and then quoted famous Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges. He recited a line from Borges' poem El Amenazado (The Threatened One), first in Spanish and then—"in case I fucked it up"—in English. During With or Without You he brought a fan, Gabriela, on stage.
Thanks to occasional losses of signal from the venue we have probably missed a few snippets tonight and the setlist will be fleshed out in due course. The full setlist was:
