U2's Brussels #2 setlist, 23/09

Today, U2 performed the second of their two concerts in Brussels. This is the first time U2 have performed two stadium gigs in Brussels on the one tour. Unlike yesterday, the band did soundcheck, but - intentionally or otherwise - it was shrouded in a bit of secrecy and we lack details regarding what the band soundchecked.

Perhaps it was to avoid blowing surprises in the setlist, because today's show featured a number of songs returning to the set. Most notably, fan favourite Bad made a much overdue return to the setlist, performed for the first time since the opening night of the second leg in Chicago on 12 September 2009. This is just its seventh appearance on the current tour. Before Bad's performance, Angel Of Harlem was played for the first time since 25 July 2009. This is just its eighth appearance on the current tour, and the first time a song from Rattle And Hum has been played at a 360° gig since Desire's appearance in Gothenburg on 31 July 2009. These two songs were played in the middle of the main set in the positions where U2 have normally been performing unreleased songs; the only unreleased song played at this gig was the opener, Return Of The Stingray Guitar.

Three other songs returned to the set after shorter absences. New Year's Day and Pride came back after an absence of 17 days; they were last played on 6 September 2010 in Istanbul. Pride replaced Sunday Bloody Sunday late in the main set, like it did a month ago in Helsinki on 21 August 2010. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me was rotated back into the setlist as the second encore opener, after missing the first night in Brussels. Also, a line from With Or Without You's extra live verse, Shine Like Stars, made a rare 360° Tour appearance.

This show became yet another 2010 European concert to be rained on; the rain was rather heavy at times. As usual, this was reflected in Bono's snippetry. The full setlist was:

  1. Return of the Stingray Guitar
  2. Beautiful Day / Rain (snippet)
