- Songs of Innocence Tour 2014 / 2015


U2's East Rutherford setlist, 20/07


Tonight U2 played in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This is their third stop in the city on the tour following performances on 23 and 24 September 2009. When first announced for 2010 it was scheduled to conclude the tour, but this changed with the rescheduled 2011 itinerary following Bono's back injury.

Several guests were in the house, including Bruce Springsteen and Salman Rushdie. The set featured some alterations from the previous few nights. Magnificent returned after an absence of one show, again being performed in its original iteration. In an insignificant note, a song was snippeted in Stay (Faraway, So Close!) for just the fourth and fifth time ever. The Edge introduced the song in place of Bono but then mistakenly played a few bars of Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of before correcting his error, and a line of In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning, popularized by Frank Sinatra in 1955, was included in the final verse. The biggest surprise was reserved for the end of the night. Following Moment of Surrender, U2 launched into Out of Control for just the fifth time on the tour. Two other songs, Bad and 40, were on the printed setlist after Out of Control but were not performed. The former has not been played since 3 April 2011, while the latter has yet to be performed this tour.
