In America the land has been conquered by the white man, but in Australia it's not really like that. . . . You can go to places and you could be the first person walking there since the Creation or whatever. -- Adam

Comments: U2's second show in Phoenix begins with the same new entrance that the band started using a night earlier, with Bono on the E-stage and Patti Smith's "People Have The Power" playing over the PA. The band accidentally starts playing "Vertigo" as the second song, before quickly adjusting course and shifting to "Out Of Control." There's a new set piece that plays out during "Raised By Wolves" and "Until The End Of The World" -- Bono picks up books from the stage floor and tosses either the whole book, or torn out pages, into the audience. The idea is to reflect the post-bombing scenes from 1974 and connect to the torn book pages that fall from the ceiling at the climax of "Until The End Of The World." On a couple occasions during the show, Bono praises the Irish referendum vote yesterday in favor of marriage equality, speaking at length about it during "Pride" and then singing the "love is a temple / love the higher law" bits of "One" at the end of "Beautiful Day." There's also new outro music playing over the PA as the audience leaves: "Same Love" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
