Comments: Space Oddity returns as the band’s intro music and is followed by a surprise – the first performance of ‘Even Better Than the Real Thing’ since June 2001. Edge leads the crowd in singing Happy Birthday for a friend who’s in town. Bono dedicates ‘Moment of Surrender’ to Argentine rock singer Gustavo Cerati, who is still in a coma after suffering a stroke in 2010. Actor John Cusack is at the show.
