U2 Debuts New Song at First Stop of 'Joshua Tree' Tour

15 May 2017

Prior to U2's performance of Exit in Vancouver, the aforesaid Prez is inserted into a reworked clip of an old Western film - "You're a liar, Trump".

As AtU2 notes, at the end of the performance, the large projection screen debuted what's believed to be the new album's cover art.

At the BC Place Stadium on Friday, they opened the set with Sunday Bloody Sunday and closed with a brand new unreleased song - Little Things. A road scene flashes during Where the Streets Have No Name and With or Without You takes us to the Grand Canyon, while Bullet the Blue Sky features shots of regular people putting on helmets preparing to go to war.

Robinson said he calculated the total based on payments tracked to bitcoin addresses specified in the ransom demands. They were forced to reschedule patients, and people were warned to stay away from emergency rooms if possible.

In addition to the new track the band dusted off songs that they had not performed together in decades, including The Joshua Tree's "Trip Through Your Wires", which had remained untouched by the band since the original Joshua Tree Tour 30 years ago. "I think after The Joshua Tree everyone knew about the band". But there are a few nuggets.

Eamon said this lovely thing about me once in a bar in Dublin - he said "Bono, Ali is the best thing about you", referring to Bono's wife Ali Hewson.

"We always had a thing with Canada in general, but Vancouver has been very, very welcoming of us at a time when we we're very fragile", he said.

The Joshua Tree was written in the '80s "when there was a lot of unrest", the Edge recently told Rolling Stone. So, numerous tracks have a political resonance to what's going on in the world today. He incited the audience to sing along: "power of the people is stronger than the people in power", and then said, "government should fear citizens, not the other way around". But the most poignant moment comes during Miss Sarajevo when the band plays an interview with Omaima, a Syrian refugee.

StubHub, which did not release the number of tickets sold, said U2 had outsold Sheeran by 65 percent and outsold last year's top summer act, British singer Adele, by 15 percent. As a giant flag of her face is passed across the crowd, Bono looked out at the audience: "Canada, hold her up".
