- Songs of Innocence Tour 2014 / 2015


U2's Philadelphia setlist, 14/07


U2's first concert in Philadelphia since the Vertigo Tour saw them modify the setlist a little from the previous show in Toronto. The most notable change was the return of Magnificent, performed for the first time since 17 June 2011. It was also performed in its old form, truer to the album version, rather than the remixed version played in May and June. This boosted the number of songs from No Line On The Horizon back up to four, after nine shows in a row with just three songs from the band's last album. Magnificent's resurrection meant that the 360° Tour's newest star, The Fly, took a leave of absence. To cater for this substitution, the order of the early passage of the main set was modified, with I Will Follow notably appearing second, the spot it held before The Fly's debut.

Bono closed the show by leading the crowd in singing Happy Birthday for Nelson Mandela's forthcoming 93rd birthday. The full setlist was:

  1. Even Better Than The Real Thing
