Comments: The 2nd leg of U2 360 begins with a safe show that's very similar to earlier European concerts.

Bono introduces the whole band before "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," just like he used to do on the Elevation tour.

He sings a bit of "Far Far Away" at the start of "Beautiful Day," a bit of "Oliver's Army" during "Sunday Bloody Sunday," and adds a couple lines from "Fool To Cry" and "40" at the end of "Bad."

Although the band rehearsed "Your Blue Room" and changes to "One" and "Streets" over the past couple nights, they're apparently not ready to play them yet. Bono sings "dream out loud" twice during Bad.  While this could also be considered an "Acrobat" snippet, we have decided to go with "Zooropa."  

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