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
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.)
