"People think I tell the band what direction to go in. The truth is, they tell me. The singer has to put into words the feelings in the music." — Bono

Comments: U2 opens the U2 360 tour with a shaky show that includes seven new songs.

Bono dedicates "Angel of Harlem" to Michael Jackson and sings bits of two Jackson songs.

Before "Unknown Caller," U2 does a lengthy linkup with the International Space Station.

"I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" is a dancy remix version with Larry playing a bongo on the catwalk.

Bono does an unknown rap during "Sunday Bloody Sunday" which does not appear to be from another song.

Volunteers walk around the catwalk wearing Aung San Suu Kyi masks during "Walk On."

A Desmond Tutu video about the ONE Campaign plays before the encore. "One" is a mess, and the band has to stop and restart the song.

"The Unforgettable Fire" is played for the first time since January 6, 1990. "Ultraviolet" hadn't been played in full since August 28, 1993.
