U2 play their second night in Coimbra, Portugal. In celebration of the reception the Portuguese audience gave U2 the first night, the band treat the crowd to the live premiere of “Boy Falls From the Sky”, the song written by Bono and The Edge for the Spider-man musical. Some fans at the show reported that they thought Bono experienced problems during the first half of the show (GOYB and Magnificent), couldn’t sing for a bit and seemed to be in pain. The missing vocals and improvised lyrics were obvious from the show’s live audio feed (as provided by fans), but the rest of the show continued without apparent problems, although Bono didn’t swing on the wheelie microphone at all during Ultra Violet. “Bad” was on the setlist (after Streets), but wasn’t played. With or Without You was dedicated to ‘the Ryan family’, by which we presume Bono meant the relatives of Irish broadcaster Gerry Ryan who died in April this year.
Return of the Stingray guitar
New Year’s Day
Get on your boots
Until the end of the world
I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
Boy falls from the sky
In a little while
City of blinding lights
I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy tonight
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Where the streets have no name
With or without you
Moment of Surrender

here’s a clip of A Boy Falls….which sounds great
There are rumors that Bono was having trouble with his voice, while other people are saying that they think they saw him take some pills on stage and that he was acting like his left leg was bothering him. So who knows? I was listening to the live feed and noticed that he messed up/changed the words to GOYB and skipped part of “Magnificent” altogether. People on the forums were joking that his teleprompter must have broken down.
