"[I]n the early '80s . . . there was this rather ridiculous idea . . . that if it was big, it was bad. Which of course rules out Elvis."

Set List Recap: Dublin - July 22, 2017

@U2, July 22, 2017
By: Sherry Lawrence

 

It was an Irish who’s who at Croke Park tonight as U2 brought The Joshua Tree 2017 tour home to Dublin. Among those spotted were musicians Imelda May and Glen Hansard, tennis star Johanna Konta, footballer Robbie Keane, and Ireland’s President Michael D. Higgins (just to name a few).

A special flyover by the Irish Air Corps accompanying “Where The Streets Have No Name” was a highlight. There were several trips down memory lane during the night as Bono recalled the band's early days, including when Reggie Manuel brought Bono to Larry’s house in 1976. Bono said he was asked what instrument he could play. Tonight he joked he told Larry the harmonica. “I lied,” he said.

“Bad” was dedicated to Lypton Village's Guckpants Delaney, a.k.a. Andy Rowen. Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” snippet made its European tour debut during “Bad,” as well. “One Tree Hill” was dedicated to Greg Carroll, Father Jack Heaslip and Father Jack Finucane. Bono thanked the Irish Navy in “Miss Sarajevo” for saving thousands of men’s and women’s lives. Panti Bliss joined the luminous icons during "Ultraviolet."

Next up: Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
