"The others don't count me as a musician. In fact the only way to get Edge to play the guitar is when I start playing it." — Bono

Comments: Some real changes to the setlist tonight produce a very memorable show for those in attendance. "I Will Follow" is played for the first time on the 360 Tour. "No Line On The Horizon" is played for the first time in 2010. Bono calls it a "busker version," as Edge plays an acoustic guitar throughout. Later, Bono and Edge debut a new song called "Every Breaking Wave," with Bono talking Edge through the chords in the middle. "Every Breaking Wave" was reportedly the last song dropped from No Line on the Horizon and is rumored to be on U2's next album. "Pride" is played for the first time in 2010.

Bono sings an unknown song (or snippet) before "MLK." It seems to have three full verses that begin with lyrics about "trouble in the world," then "trouble in your heart," then "trouble in your head."

Bono sings several snippets throughout the show that refer to the rainy weather in Helsinki -- including leading the crowd through "Singin' in the Rain" after "Moment of Surrender" ends. The crowd continues to sing the song as the band walks off the stage.
