U2's Sao Paulo #2 setlist, 10/04


Today, U2 performed their second of three concerts in Sao Paulo. And what a concert it was - we are going to remember this as "the show that killed U2gigs", after the site temporarily collapsed during the encore.

Straight out of the blocks, U2 had surprises in store. Out Of Control made its tour debut, slotting into second in the setlist. It was last played on 4 December 2006, and is just the second song from the Boy album to be played this tour. However, the most momentous moment of the night came later in the main set, when the title track from Zooropa was performed live for the first time since 12 August 1993. It had previously only been played live three times ever, and all of those three were incomplete performances featuring just the final third of the song; this performance was essentially the full song in all its glory.

As for the rest of the setlist, Pride and Ultra Violet rotated back into the set after both missing the previous show. Unreleased song North Star returned for its 14th ever performance, after missing the previous three shows. And to make room for North Star and Zooropa, Beautiful Day slotted into the position normally held by In A Little While - a song whose performance has been controversial and not particularly well-received amongst the online fanbase, but nonetheless it has been a setlist staple lately. The last time it missed a show was on 14 October 2009.

  1. Even Better Than The Real Thing
