"It can be really difficult to re-adjust to having someone living back in the house. ... Bono always says that he feels like a bit of litter around the house." — Ali

U2 Set List: New York City, June 25, 2018


U2 returned for the first of three Experience + Innocence shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It’s a venue the band has never skipped on an arena tour since first playing it in 1985. The set featured “All Because Of You” in the rotating fifth song spot.

Bono gave a nod to Island Records founder Chris Blackwell during “Beautiful Day,” and to Lady Gaga during “Get Out Of Your Own Way” and “One.” He also sang a snippet of “Born This Way” at the end of “Vertigo.” He acknowledged Jony Ive, “the genius at Apple,” during “One.” Artist Edel Rodriguez, and his father also attended the show and hung with the band during soundcheck. His imagery adorns the barricage during the pre-show, as well as during “Get Out Of Your Own Way.” Another notable at the show was Bishop Michael Curry, the pastor who gave the sermon at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

The show also saw a return of a lyrical shift during “Pride” to point out the immigration issue facing the U.S. currently: “One boy washed up on a border of a country, one boy never be kissed.”

Next up? Night two at Madison Square Garden tomorrow.
