U2 E+I tour logo with EU stars

U2 played two nights in Manchester, U.K., and fans enjoyed great shows with different setlists but no surprises. On Friday, "Gloria" returned to the show as the rotational song, and tonight was the time of "All Because Of You". Also tonight, the band changed the sequence of the first act playing "The Fly" just after "Zoo Station".

A different EU flag was projected during the show because of Brexit (see the photo). "We’ve been touring all across Europe and the resounding message is nobody wants you to leave," Bono said. "I don’t want to break your heart or your balls but the band has been touring Europe. And whatever you think of it, people love you. People love this United Kingdom. For us it’s more than a gold star falling off the flag. Without it the rest of us are just less."

On Friday, the band paid tribute to the victims of Manchester Arena bombing, which happened last year. Bono dedicated "13 (There Is A Light)" to those who lost their lives. "This is a prayer for the safety of your children." Tonight, the song was dedicated to Dennis Seehan’s children who were at the show.
