U2 perform at the Brandenburg Gate

To celebrate 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and as part of MTV's Europe Music Awards, U2 performed in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin today. The performance was free, although it was ticketed and limited to 10,000 attendees. Yesterday, the staging and lighting were prepared, and earlier today, the band soundchecked six songs.

As it happened, the band played six songs - but not the exact six soundchecked. Not everything was different from the soundcheck; One and especially Magnificent were abbreviated versions, and Sunday Bloody Sunday featured a guest rap by Jay-Z. In a surprise, Beautiful Day was played with the extended "we love you" intro for the first time since 20 September 2009.

The full setlist was:

  1. One
  2. Magnificent
  3. Sunday Bloody Sunday / Get Up Stand Up (snippet)
  4. Beautiful Day / Blackbird (snippet)
  5. Vertigo
  6. Moment of Surrender
