U2's La Plata #2 setlist, 02/04

Today, after a couple of days off, U2 played their second concert in La Plata, Argentina. This was the first time U2 have ever had a gap of two full days between the first and second concerts in the same city, though such a gap will be repeated in Mexico next month. During the afternoon today, the band did a soundcheck. It included Even Better Than The Real Thing, Stuck In A Moment, New Year's Day, and Ultra Violet.

All four soundchecked songs made the setlist, and the latter three were played for the first time in 2011. U2 stuck with Even Better Than The Real Thing as the tour's energetic new opener, and followed it with New Year's Day in place of I Will Follow. Stuck In A Moment slotted in as a mid-set acoustic performance, appearing for just the third time since 2009 when it was a setlist staple. Stuck was part of a surprising throwback to the Elevation Tour, with four out of five consecutive songs coming from All That You Can't Leave Behind. The first song of the second encore was rotational in 2010 and is rotational again this year, with Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me being rotated out in favour of Ultra Violet tonight.

Until The End Of The World was moved from its usual spot after Elevation all the way up the setlist to fourth. This is the earliest it has been played on the current tour, though it occupied such an early spot as recently as some Vertigo Tour shows in 2006. It is also worth noting that tonight, Achtung Baby and All That You Can't Leave Behind achieved greater representation in the setlist than No Line On The Horizon, the album ostensibly being promoted on this tour.
