Remarks:

U2 returned to New Orleans after a 20 year hiatus. This was also only their 5th performance in the state of Lousiana. Bono mentioned how New Orleans played a prominent role in the lives of U2 including The Edge’s co-creation of the Music Rising project in November of 2005, to support local musicians who were the victims of Hurricane Katrina. A snippet of The Skids’ “The Saints Are Coming” was performed after “Vertigo” (this was a song U2 performed with Green Day back in September 2006 to mark the re-opening of the Superdome). “You’re the Best Thing About Me” was …read more

The setlist was identical to the one in Indianapolis from two nights ago (aside from “Vertigo” being performed after “You’re the Best Thing About Me” instead tonight). The Kansas City Royals were mentioned during “Beautiful Day” with nearby Kauffman Stadium directly next door to Arrowhead Stadium.

Remarks:

Tonight’s show in the city of Indianapolis was the first in over 16 years (U2 last performed there in May of 2001 on their Elevation Tour and last performed in the state of Indiana in October of 2001). Back in 1987 when U2 performed here on their original Joshua Tree Tour, the band members created alter egos of themselves called the “Dalton Brothers”. They played a couple of songs (Lucille, Lost Highway) before their main set in front of an audience who didn’t initially recognize them as the real members of U2. Tonight, Bono asked a U2 fan in the audience: “Were you changed by the experience of the …read more
