Last night was the home performance as the Stories of Surrender Tour landed in Dublin. The venue, 3Olympia Theatre, is the smallest of the tour and not one that U2 ever played even in their earliest days, though 3/4 of the band did join Johnny Cash on stage there on 11 February 1993 for a performance of "Big River"; Cash would record his vocals for "The Wanderer" the next day.
The performance was filmed and we expect that this show will go on to be released as a memento of the tour on a streaming service. New York, the first night of the tour, was also filmed but we believe that was mostly a rehearsal of sorts. The setlist was as usual, save for a surprise snippet of "Crumbs From Your Table" after "Where the Streets Have No Name"; Bono shared that Sister Ann, who is referenced in the final verse of the song, was in attendance. The song has never been snippeted before and this is it's first appearance in any form since 15 December 2005. Coincidentally that day also saw "Torna A Surriento" in the set, albeit as a snippet.
Adam was in attendance tonight, as were Sam Sullivan, Guggi, and Gavin Friday. Ali and their son John were also there, as were Bono's brothers and numerous members of the national government.
