Comments: The 2nd leg of U2 360 begins with a safe show that’s very similar to earlier European concerts. Bono introduces the whole band before I Still Haven’t Found, just like he used to do on the Elevation Tour. He sings a bit of ‘Far Far Away’ at the start of Beautiful Day, a bit of ‘Oliver’s Army’ during Sunday Bloody Sunday, and adds a couple lines from ‘Fool To Cry’ and ’40’ at the end of Bad. Although the band rehearsed Your Blue Room and changes to One & Streets over the past couple nights, they’re apparently not ready to play them yet.
