U2 wrapped up Madison Square Garden run (Night 3 setlist, video, pics)
U2 wrapped up their three-night Madison Square Garden run on Sunday (7/1) and the show was also the penultimate date on their North American tour. Setlists for this tour have been nearly identical, save for one spot in the first set between "I Will Follow" and "Beautiful Day," and Sunday's was the same as their first MSG show. One thing that was different on Sunday, though, was that there were 150 United Nations Ambassadors in attendance. From The Irish Times:
“Tonight we have 150 ambassadors representing the United Nations here tonight; we want to thank you for keeping the world more peaceful,” he said.
“You do f**k up the traffic here sometimes but that’s okay,” he added, referring to the notorious traffic congestion caused during the UN General Assembly every September.
In a call to action, he urged more women and young people to get involved in campaigns, pointing to demonstrations in the US at the Trump administration’s separation of immigrant children from parents at the border with Mexico.
There needed to be “less of people like - less older white guys,” he joked.
“Seriously though we have got to diversify, we have got to open up. That’s why if the United Nations did not exist, we would have to invent it because it is the one thing that puts peace on our table,” he said, before introducing the band’s song, One.
Bono, The Edge, Larry, and Adam play the final date on their eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour on Tuesday (7/3) at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena.
