Comments: U2 make their first ever appearance at the Glastonbury Festival, headlining Friday night 2011. They were originally one of 2010's headliners but had to pull out in May 2010 due to Bono's back surgery. Bad is played for just the second time in 2011; Out Of Control for just the third time in 2011. When performed, Moment Of Surrender is normally last in the set - this is just the second time it appears in a spot other than the closer, following U2's appearance on Saturday Night Live on 2009-09-26. The only three songs in the set which are not singles are Until The End Of The World, Bad, and Moment Of Surrender. An archive of tweets for this show can be found here.
