U2’s Cape Town setlist, 18/02

Tonight, U2 performed in Cape Town. In a welcome initiative, the show was broadcast live on the Internet for U2.com subscribers. It was also broasdcast on Highveld and KFM 94.5 in South Africa, alongside a live stream onDstv.com, only available throughout the African continent.

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and Stand By Me were performed with Yvonne Chaka Chaka. Although Stand By Me has been a somewhat common snippet, it had only been played in full once previously on the 360° Tour, way back on 7 July 2009. Its addition to the setlist was the only change from Johannesburg; otherwise, the setlist was identical to that played five nights ago. This means that unreleased song North Star got another live outing. I Will Follow, Pride, and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me all stayed in the set, even though they are usually rotational.

By the way, City Of Blinding Lights has a new, extended intro. It features samples from Fez-Being Born and Zooropa. Unfortunately, it is just a taped intro; the band does not play any of either song live. If either song were actually snippeted by the band, it would be momentous; Fez has never appeared live in any form, while Zooropa has only been played three times.

The full setlist was:

  1. Beautiful Day
  2. I Will Follow
  3. Get On Your Boots
  4. Magnificent
  5. Mysterious Ways
  6. Elevation
  7. Until The End Of The World / Anthem (snippet)
  8. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
  9. Stand By Me
  10. North Star
  11. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
  12. In A Little While
  13. Miss Sarajevo
  14. City Of Blinding Lights
  15. Vertigo
  16. Crazy Tonight / Relax (snippet) / Two Tribes (snippet)
  17. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  18. Scarlet
  19. Walk On / You’ll Never Walk Alone (snippet)
  20. One
  21. Amazing Grace (snippet) / Where The Streets Have No Name / All You Need Is Love (snippet)
  22. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
  23. With Or Without You
  24. Moment of Surrender
