Setlist Recap: Twickenham - July 9, 2017

Fans attending The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 night two in Twickenham enjoyed a slightly different set from last night. There were more than 10 different songs snippets featuring band favorites David Bowie, the Beatles, the Ramones, and the Rolling Stones.  Both Stella and Mary McCartney were given shoutouts from Bono, which explains why there were so many Beatles snippets.

"Mysterious Ways" made its European leg tour debut as another female fan was brought onstage during the song.  

During "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," Bono praised Alice Wroe for the HERStory project. Ahead of "One Tree Hill," Bono remembered both Greg Carroll and actress Natasha Richardson, acknowledging that her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, was in the audience. Bono also thanked "on behalf of the entire nation" Brian Eno: "Let me say this off script: There wouldn't be side 2, and there wouldn't be a side 1 if it weren't for Brian Eno, who's here tonight."

Bono dedicated the show to the people of London and to the heroes of the London Fire Brigade. He also thanked his cousin, AJ Rankin, for being one of his heroes as he "always has my back."

The next show is in Berlin on Wednesday.
