I remember the frustration of hearing a melody in my head but not being able to quite put it down. So you learn to rely on other people, the band, and you start thinking that's a weakness. But it's a strength to rely on others.-- Bono, 2004

U2 Set List: Washington, D.C., June 18, 2018

@U2

Monday's show was the second night of the Experience + Innocence Tour in Washington, D.C. U2 performed the usual set list at the Capital One Arena, except “All Because Of You” replaced “Gloria,” which was played Sunday.

“We’re a band from North Side of Dublin. If you let us in, we’ll never leave,” Bono said during “I Will Follow.” “Washington Capitals right in front of you,” was the shout-out during “Beautiful Day.”

The show had a lot of political references to U.S. immigration policy. “I especially love people that use the Bible to justify whatever they want,” MacPhisto said. “Willful blindness can tear apart a family or a country,” he said during “Staring At The Sun.”

Bono also talked about “dreamers caged at the borders” before “Pride.” “This is not America. Who is America? Where is America?” he questioned. And finally, during “City Of Blinding Lights," he said that “the city shining on the hills belongs to everyone.”
