Comments: The second show in Perth starts with what looks like a setlist from the Joshua Tree tour but after an extended version of "Running To Stand Still", the band quickly mix things up by playing "With Or Without You" during the main set. Which up until the Lovetown tour, it was usually played during the encore. The band also play an extended version of "Desire" featuring a snippet of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away". With the exception of the Popmart tour, Bono will continue to use this snippet during "Desire" and it has made an appearence on every tour since.
