Comments: U2 returns to the U.S. after last year’s tour was postponed due to Bono’s back injury. Bono tells the crowd that his surgery was a year ago today, and praises the German doctors who took care of him. With claims of a rapture happening today dominating the news, Bono plays up the theme a bit during Until The End Of The World. There are a number of new elements in the show, including a video of Aung San Suu Kyi that plays in the first encore break before One. All four band members come out in jackets with flashing lights during City Of Blinding Lights. Rather than Amazing Grace, Bono sings and plays a bit of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow before Streets. Bono dedicates Moment of Surrender to Josh Green, a local ONE Campaign member who died in 2009.
