U2's Moncton setlist, 30/07


Tonight, U2 performed in Moncton, New Brunswick, playing the final concert of the U2 360° tour. This was the final date announced, displacing Pittsburgh as the last concert of the tour when it was added to the itinerary on 31 January 2011. It was the first time U2 have played Atlantic Canada; or anywhere in Canada further east than Montreal. It was also the first time ever that U2 have concluded a tour in Canada, and the first time since the PopMart tour that a tour has ended outside of the United States. This show brought the grand total of 360° Tour concerts in Canada to nine, equalling the record of the Elevation and Vertigo tours. However, those two tours were played entirely in Canadian arenas while all 360° shows have been in stadiums, thus this is U2's biggest Canadian tour of all time. PopMart was previously the largest stadium-only tour of Canada, with seven shows.

The crew soundchecked Zooropa, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Moment of Surrender, Even Better Than the Real Thing, and a portion of Get on Your Boots.

The setlist itself stuck to the usual template, but had a few bonuses for the occasion. At the end of I Still Haven't Found, Bono added a snippet of Springhill Mining Disaster, a song U2 used to play live with lyrics naturally based in Springhill, a town in Nova Scotia (a province U2 have never performed in) just 74 kilometres away from Moncton. Then at the end of the show, U2 kept going past Moment Of Surrender; it was followed by Out Of Control. This means that Moncton got a very rare setlist with both I Will Follow and Out Of Control; since Out Of Control's live resurrection in May 2001, the amount of times these two particular Boy songs have appeared at the same show can be counted on one hand.

However, Out Of Control was not the end of proceedings. After Bono sprayed the crowd with champagne, U2 went into 40. This is, amazingly enough, the song's tour debut, having last been performed in full on 20 February 2006 on the Vertigo Tour. This is the first time an original U2 song has ever made its tour debut at the last show of the tour, let alone as the last song of the tour. Larry was left alone as the last band member on stage at the end of 40, and with his final drum beats, the 360° Tour came to a close, two years and one month after it began in Barcelona on 30 June 2009.
