U2's Chicago #1 setlist, 24/06

Tonight, U2 performed their first of five Innocence + Experience concerts in Chicago, Illinois, a city the band visited three times on the 360 Tour and six times on both the Vertigo and Elevation tours. Reports indicate that Ordinary Love and Raised By Wolves were soundchecked prior to the show, and that Bono was feeling a bit under the weather.

Larry very briefly played a bit of Out Of Control's drum intro at the beginning of Vertigo, the third time this tour he's accidentally played the opening of a different song. Bono dedicated Elevation to the champion Chicago Blackhawks, who captured the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup Final at the same arena a few days earlier. Before the snippet of I Remember You at the end of Beautiful Day, Bono spoke about the successful Irish referendum for marriage equality.

In response to the tragic race-motivated shooting at a historic Charleston, South Carolina church that left nine innocent African American parishioners dead last Wednesday, Bono yelled "Dr. King, we need you now more than ever in Ferguson, in Baltimore, IN CHARLESTON!" during Pride's bridge.

Ordinary Love returned to the setlist after an absence of three shows; The Electric Co. and I Still Haven't Found returned after missing one each. Elevation was performed at consecutive shows for the first time this tour. Tonight was the first time U2 have played a setlist identical to that of a previous show - the same songs in the same order were played on 12 June in Montreal.
