U2's Dublin setlist, 22/07/17

Tonight was U2's only hometown jaunt of The Joshua Tree 2017 Tour. The last time they played Dublin just once on a tour was all the way back on 29 June 1985, during the sixth leg of The Unforgettable Fire Tour, subtitled the European Summer Festivals leg. That concert also took place at Croke Park. Discounting those festivals, the last time they played Dublin only once was 26 January 1982 on the third leg of the October Tour, a night that saw the live debut of Tomorrow. U2 have never before played Ireland just once on a tour.

Bad was dedicated to Guckpants Delaney, the Lypton Village name for Andy Rowan. At the end of the song Bono snippeted Simon & Garfunkel's America for the first time this leg. During Streets there was a quadruple flyover by fighter jets, the contrails of each mixing to create the Irish tricolour as they passed over the stadium. Mothers of the Disappeared was played in Ireland for the first time ever, although it made a brief appearance in the past when it was snippeted on 25 July 2009. Amazingly, tonight's performance of Miss Sarajevo (the 183 for the song) was also the first in Ireland. Although a mainstay on both the Vertigo and 360 tours, it joined the set after the Irish concerts on both occasions. This is the longest gap (in both number of performances and time) for a song between debuting live and appearing in Dublin, though if Scarlet is ever performed there it will shatter that record for time.
