I think U2 have ended all their concerts with slow songs...i think they do this to keep people calm, and not from going nuts on the street and vandalizing people's
stores and stuff. Have you ever heard of a riot after a U2 concert? I haven't....

I also think its a tradition that the band has, like how Bono always pulls a girl on stage and dances with her...

Just my 2 cents..
