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….'

So excited to see the toronto concert with my sister who is flying in from Nova Scotia to join me . We are the lucky ones to have experienced our teen years in the 80's with some of the best bands , U2 being one of them . Joshua Tree is a favorite of ours as our Dad ( who has since passed away) use to have a couple of beers and play air guitar with Edge to I Still haven't Found What I am looking For . This concert is going to bring back so happy memories ! Thank you

Can't wait, but please fix Credit Card e
Seeing the Seattle set list I can only hope Toronto is similar. Bad...please, please, please. I am looking forward to this concert but also please please please fix the credit card entry issues that plagued Vancouver before getting here. Can't miss out on the outside while amazing is happening on the inside.

Can't wait for a June 23 - Toronto
We have seen each tour since early 80's. We were at Toronto show in 1987, at Exhibition Stadium for Joshua Tree Tour. BONO's arm was in a sling as he had fallen off stage at an earlier show. They were phenomenal. I can't believe it is 30 years later and we are seeing this tour again. So excited. My husband and I have been married for almost 31 years and have seen every tour together - in Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo. Our kids grew up with U2 and have attended a few shows with us. My daughter and her boyfriend are coming with us again on June 23!! We can't wait to see the BEST BAND IN THE UNIVERSE again!!!

Like a Dream
I can't wait to see you guys in Toronto at the Rogers centre. I just saw the experienced tour not to that long ago and it was a fantastic show. I never thought I would see you again so soon. When the JT tour was announced I just thought I have to be there. It's like a dream to me that I am once again going to experience the JT tour now that I'm a lot more experienced. It's going to be even more fun the second time around. See you all there.

Its a life event for our family!!
Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry, we are excited to see you at Rogers Centre with almost our entire family - brothers, kids and everyone :-). The last show I watched was at Rose Bowl stadium ( picture above). I grew up as your fan when I was in teens. Now my kids who are in teens will be watching your show with me. Its going to be a beautiful moment and we are waiting each day for this big day to come. My teen age kid is all set to prepare a U2 banner as well. We got seats quite close to the stage. So yes, Wohoo!! All that you can't leave behind..... I see so much around, but I only see U2 show to look forward to. :-)
