Releases Represented:

  1. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb had 7 songs

  3. Achtung Baby had 4 songs
  4. War had 3 songs
  5. All That You Can't Leave Behind had 2 songs
  6. The Unforgettable Fire had 1 songs

Comments: The band turns the setlist on its head, opening with the war trio ("Love and Peace or Else", "Sunday Bloody Sunday", and "Bullet the Blue Sky") and moving "Vertigo" and "City of Blinding Lights" all the way to the final stretch of songs.  The show was also notable for possibly not having an encore.  There was a minor break after only 11 songs (between "One" and "Zoo Station" as the band walked off stage and Bono said to the audience, "Give us a couple of minutes."  The band soon returned and played 9 more songs.  Many fans were confused after "40" when the house lights came on indicating the end of the show.
