U2's London #1 setlist, 14/08

Today, U2 played their first of two concerts in London - the last city of the European leg to receive two concerts. Before the show began, the band did a soundcheck that featured Mysterious Ways and Your Blue Room. The latter has never been played live before.

During the actual gig, U2 seemed to be playing it very safe setlist-wise with the tabloid media's reviewers presumably attending in droves, though Stuck In A Moment was victim to some errors. Then the band threw in a considerable surprise: at the end of the main set, Mysterious Ways (featuring an extremely brief Norwegian Wood snippet at its end) followed One. Although Mysterious Ways has often been second-last in both main sets and encores, this is the first time it has ever actually been a main set closer. This tour, when One has been played after Streets (i.e. all but four shows), it has typically been the main set closer - the only previous exception was when Bad followed it in Dublin on 27 July 2009.

As a matter of interest, the Desmond Tutu intro was again before One rather than Streets. On the statistical front, tonight's performance of I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For was its 500th live appearance, while Streets was played for the 666th time. The full setlist was:
