U2 Cape Town South Africa Set List

U2 Set List Cape Town South Africa 2011

After last year's popular tour of New Zealand and Australia, U2 have started their tour in South Africa. After a show in Johannesburg, U2 played a special set list in Cape Town, South Africa.

Africa has long held a place in Bono's heart, and songs like Where the Streets Have No Name were inspired directly buy his charity work in the early 1980s. Like Bob Geldolf, Bono and U2 have never stopped campaigning to reduce third world debt so playing a gig in SA is probably full of real meaning for the band.

Yvonne Chaka Chaka guested vocals on Stand By Me and ISHFWILF.

Set List: Beautiful Day, I Will Follow, Get On Your Boots, Magnificent, Mysterious Ways, Elevation, Until the End of the World - Anthem, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Stand By Me, North Star, Pride, In a Little While, Miss Sarajevo, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, I'll Go Crazy (remix) - Relax - Two Tribes, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Scarlet, Walk On - You'll Never Walk Alone

Encore(s): One, Amazing Grace - Where the Streets Have No Name, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me, With or Without You, Moment of Surrender

U2 played the following set list on February 18, 2011 at Cape Town's Stadium. The opening acts were 'Amadou & Mariam' and the amusingly named 'Springbok Nude Girls'

Sauce: U2 Tours who noted of the pre recording "before Blinding Lights includes a bit of Fez-Being Born with the 'What do you want?' line from Zooropa."

U2 didn't make any mention about Songs of Ascent.... is it gonna happen?
