For an audience of 900 lucky ticket winners, U2 played five songs and answered (pre-screened) audience questions the Somerville Theatre in Boston.
1. Get On Your Boots (Bono: “Too many lights, Willie, turn them down.”)
2. Magnificent (Bono: “It’s a vaudeville theatre, not for shy people. Like myself.”)
3. Breathe (Bono:”Irish flags, flying and all.”)
4. Crazy Tonight / Come On Eileen (snippet) (Bono: “This is a bit of a popsong.”)
5. Vertigo / She Loves You (snippet)
