Enjoy this pro shot full songs footage of Return of the Stingray Guitar, Beautiful Day, I Will Follow, filmed in Brussels on September 22, 2010.
The Seville crowd was pretty loud and Bono asked them to sing Happy Birthday for his ‘big brother’ Norman, just before In A Little While. The band introductions were all football related: ‘Iker Casillas’ on bass, ‘Our Own ‘EL Niño-the boy Torres’ on drums and ‘Xavi Hernadez’ on guitar.
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
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
Check this clip filmed during Until the end of the world from (the very awesome) second show in Brussels… Bono lets himself fall into the audience 2’40” into the song.
The Killers’ Brandon Flowers who is currently touring his solo album, covered U2’s ‘If God will send his angels’ at his recent show at the Academy in Dublin.
These are some of the songs U2 have been playing over the PA before the start of the show. Thanks to @u2wanderer for Shazam magic, and U2tour.de. Currently missing from the list, a Grinderman song. Probably “No Pussy Blues”.

German audience surprises Bono at the end of Northstar.
U2 returns to the city where their singer’s back was Vorsprunged durch Technik. The doctors and nurses get plenty thanks, especially ‘beautiful, beguiling’ nurse Imke. During “Until the End of the World”, presumably responding to the chiming noise The Edge’s guitar was making, Bono quotes from Leonard Cohen’s beautiful “Anthem”: “Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” Then it’s from high brow to low brow as Bono sings “Moment of Surrender” wearing an FC Bayern Munich shirt.
