"My talent if it's anything is my approach to the guitar by the use of effects, by non-acceptance of the usual approaches to the guitar." — Edge

U2 Set List: Toronto, July 6, 2015

@U2

I'm almost tempted to start by saying "U2 played Acrobat tonight," but that would be incorrect by one word -- but not "Acrobat." U2 actually played with Acrobat tonight, but they didn't play the song "Acrobat." What happened was a totally spur-of-the-moment thing, not even on the setlist, with Bono inviting all four members of the Toronto-based tribute band known as Acrobat to come on the E-stage and play a song using U2's instruments. Larry and Adam watched from the floor. Edge played and sung. Bono sang with the tribute Bono, then left to get a harmonica and rejoined Acrobat on stage ... and it all added up to a magical moment at the first of two U2 shows in Toronto. The show ran 25 songs long, tying it with Phoenix #1 for most songs in a single show this tour. (Note: Both shows hit that mark thanks to an unplanned, fan-on-stage-playing-with-the-band moment.)

We have a longer recap and the full Toronto #1 setlist online. If you were at the show, be sure to click that link and use the Post Review/Photos link to share your version of events with all of our readers.

And meanwhile, here's video of that magical moment I described above.
