U2's Madrid #2 setlist, 21/09/18

U2's second and final E+I concert in Spain saw the first time this leg that a concert has not had 23 songs (the halted Berlin date notwithstanding). 24 songs made the set, with the surprise inclusion of Spanish Eyes to close the main set. This was just the song's 19th-ever performance, and the sixth in the country that gives the song it's name. Until the 360° Tour U2 were pulling it out on a bitour basis (if that wasn't a word before, it is now), but since then it has appeared at four tours in a row. With a gap of 11 months and 18 days since the last rendition in Mexico City, it is also the shortest time between performances of the song since 1987.

Other changes to the set were minor. All Because of You took the fourth slot, as is usual for the second night. Despite recent reports of Stay (Faraway, So Close!) being rehearsed, it was another Zooropa song that made an appearance of sorts as Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car was briefly snippeted prior to Vertigo. This is the first time it has made any kind of appearance in concert since it was snippeted during The Fly on 20 September 2005, a 13-year and 1-day gap. On that occasion it was reported that U2 were considering it for inclusion; it will be interesting to see if this apparently random snippet leads to anything down the line.
