When & Where Friday, June 23rd 2017. Rogers Centre, Toronto, Canada. Night 17 of #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
Set List Roof was (literally) lifted off even before the opening of the show. Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day, Bad, and Pride gave us another lift off. People were delayed getting here, Bono acknowledged. 'Thank you for taking on the traffic to come out here and see us play after all of these years.' We're in Canada & remembering Leonard Cohen. Hallelujah. Seventeen shows in and you never quite know how what songs will appear in Act III. Tonight: Miss Sarajevo/ Beautiful Day/ Elevation/ Vertigo/ Ultraviolet (Light My Way)/ One and, finally, - ‘Alright, bring out that Explorer guitar.. still can't tune it.' - I Will Follow.
Social Post @Greengrrrl (Instagram): 'When Bono says, "Welcome to side two," and you're old enough to remember.'
If You Had To Pick One Song Bad. @randois (Twitter): 'Bono sang a verse of Cohen's "Suzanne" during "Bad". It was one of the most beautiful things I've heard this band do.'
What (else) did Bono Say? Coming out of Beautiful Day and into Elevation: 'It's a beautiful day when human rights drown out human wrongs. When sisters around the world are in school like their brothers. When everyone's identity is what they want it to be, beautiful day. When women of the world unite to rewrite history as her story. Womankind….educate my mind…Explain all those controls...I can't sing but I've got soul…'
Top Review on U2.com u2nadias: 'Phenomenal Show. The crowd was so into it. No one sitting. Bono's voice was amazing. They just get better and better. We have see all the tours since early 80's. I never want it to end….'
