U2 Seattle Set List

Are you gonna go U2's way?
So U2 decided to turn up in the city that gave birth to Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden to play a few songs from albums that outsold all those bands... ;)

U2 played their set Qwest Field just after Lenny Kravitz played a pretty decent set. He's a dude I'd be keen to see play. Hey Lenny! Come to Wellington! You can stay at my place. I have new curtains.

U2's Seattle set list:

Even Better Than The Real Thing, I Will Follow, Get On Your Boots, Magnificent, Mysterious Ways, Elevation, It's the End of the World as We Know It - Until the End of the World - Where Have All the Flowers Gone, All I Want Is You, Beautiful Day - Space Oddity, Pride, Miss Sarajevo, Zooropa, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, I'll Go Crazy (remix) - Discotheque - Life During Wartime - Psycho Killer, Sunday Bloody Sunday (lyrics), Scarlet, Walk On - You'll Never Walk Alone

Set encores:

One, Will You Love Me Tomorrow - Where the Streets Have No Name - All You Need is Love, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me, With or Without You, Moment of Surrender

Comments from U2 Tours: A new video debuts before Beautiful Day. It features astronaut Mark Kelly (Gabby Giffords husband, who is still on board the Space Shuttle) holding up a series of word parts that leads into the song, and then saying 'tell my wife I love her … she knows.' Kelly then reappears again throughout the song on the video screen, and recites the bridge lyrics ('See the world in green and blue,' etc.)

Members of Pearl Jam, R.E.M (hence the song snippet) and Heart are at the show.

Also at the show is one of Aung San Suu Kyi's sons - for those that do not know about this remarkable lady, read the link at her name.
