U2's Montreal #1 setlist, 08/07


Today, U2 played the first of two concerts in Montreal, the final time of the tour that they have a doubleheader in the same city. Soundcheck was largely done by the crew, and included Zooropa, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Moment of Surrender, Even Better Than the Real Thing, and brief elements of With or Without You, Beautiful Day, I Will Follow, Get on Your Boots, and Streets. The full band did not soundcheck but The Edge did practice some elements later, playing various lines from Zooropa, City of Blinding Lights, The Fly, and, surprisingly, Glastonbury.

The setlist contained no real surprises. I Will Follow returned to the set after missing the previous concert in Chicago, and Moment of Surrender closed the show for the first time since Miami on 29 June. Before I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Bono introduced the band as members of the Royal Family, an apt comparison as William and Kate had wrapped up their tour of Canada recently. Larry was described as Prince William, Adam as Kate, Edge as the Prince of Wales, and Bono as one of the Queen's Corgis. He also included several shout-outs in the course of the show to Guy Laliberté, the CEO of Cirque du Soleil, who had appeared in a Space Station broadcast during the first North American leg in 2009.

During Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, a few drops of rain began to fall; it looked as though the weather would hold off, but in the final verse of Moment of Surrender it began to pour down, leading Bono and Edge to duet on a snippet of Rain to close out the show.
