U2's Cologne #1 setlist, 04/09/18

The tour continued today with the first of two concerts in Cologne, and thankfully Bono's voice was in fine form. He made just two references to it during the night; the first as MacPhisto, gleefully saying "I see my old friend Boh-no lost his voice in Berlin. Bravo! Bravo! I think he is his very best vocalist with the sound turned down." The second came in his talk to Ali before You're the Best Thing About Me: "Hey darling, I really miss you; especially with what happened earlier in Berlin. The show is going really well tonight, voice is strong..."

Fans outside the venue reported hearing The Unforgettable Fire being soundchecked today, but it was not performed. The setlist was identical to the first night in Berlin (and what was planned for the second Berlin concert), so Red Flag Day was played for the third concert in succession; previously it had a streak of only twice in a row. On a note of that, despite Berlin #2 lasting just five songs the performance of Beautiful Day means that it is still the only song to have been performed at every concert since it debuted live (not counting songs from the most recent album). Had Bono not attempted it after the problems in Red Flag Day the only songs to hold that distinction would be The Blackout and Lights of Home.
