U2's Chorzow setlist, 06/08

Today, U2 played their sole Polish concert of 2009 in Chorzow. This is only the third time U2 have ever performed in Poland; last tour, they also played in Chorzow, on 5 July 2005, while the first gig took place during the Popmart Tour, on 12 August 1997 in Warsaw.

As expected, the band played New Year's Day, their tribute to Poland's Solidarity movement, for the Polish audience. Like in 2005, the audience became awash with red and white to make the colours of the Polish flag, thanks to independently organised fan action. The show was made more special by Bono making it an honorary birthday celebration concert; The Edge's birthday is in two days but there is no concert on 08/08 itself. This included Bono leading the crowd in Happy Birthday after Stuck In A Moment (which itself was interrupted by the crowd chanting), and snippeting The Beatles' Birthday at the start of Vertigo.
