U2 2017 Set List Tracker: ‘The Joshua Tree’ Tour

Subscribe to 96.1 The Eagle on

This summer, U2 are honoring the 30th anniversary of their 1987 blockbuster The Joshua Tree with a world tour where they’re performing the album in its entirety. We’ve created this page to track how their set lists evolve from night-to-night.

We’ll be updating this page with each change to note which older songs they’ve chosen to bring out, and how much of the forthcoming Songs of Experience they’re previewing. The first night, at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, closed with the world premiere of “The Little Things That You Give Away.” And we’ll include videos under each set list so you can see and hear the results. Check it all out below.

“Sunday Bloody Sunday” / “New Year’s Day” / “Pride (In the Name of Love)” / “Where the Streets Have No Name” / “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” / “With or Without You” / “Bullet the Blue Sky” / “Running to Stand Still”  / “Red Hill Mining Town” / “In God’s Country” / “Trip Through Your Wires” / “One Tree Hill” (dedicated to Chris Cornell) / “Exit” / “Mothers of the Disappeared” / “Miss Sarajevo” / “Bad” / “Beautiful Day” / “Elevation” / “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)” / “One” / “The Little Things That Give You Away”

For the first time on the tour, U2 played the exact same set as the previous concert.

“Sunday Bloody Sunday” / “New Year’s Day” / “Pride (In the Name of Love)” / “Where the Streets Have No Name” / “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” / “With or Without You” / “Bullet the Blue Sky” / “Running to Stand Still”  / “Red Hill Mining Town” / “In God’s Country” / “Trip Through Your Wires” / “One Tree Hill” (dedicated to Chris Cornell) / “Exit” / “Mothers of the Disappeared” / “Miss Sarajevo” / “Bad” / “Beautiful Day” / “Elevation” / “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)” / “One” / “The Little Things That Give You Away

U2 continue to make minor tweaks to the set list. For their second show at the Rose Bowl, they went into the Joshua Tree performance after only three songs, removing “A Sort of Homecoming” entirely. The band dedicated another number to Chris Cornell, “One Tree Hill.” They also changed up the order of the encores and brought back the new song “The Little Things That Give You Away” as the closing number.

“Black Hole Sun” (by Soundgarden, on the P.A. prior to U2’s performance) “Sunday Bloody Sunday” / “New Year’s Day” / “A Sort of Homecoming” / “Pride (In the Name of Love)” / “Where the Streets Have No Name” / “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” / “With or Without You” / “Bullet the Blue Sky” / “Running to Stand Still” (dedicated to Chris Cornell) / “Red Hill Mining Town” / “In God’s Country” / “Trip Through Your Wires” / “One Tree Hill” / “Exit” / “Mothers of the Disappeared” / “Beautiful Day” / “Elevation” / “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)” / “One” / “Miss Sarajevo” / “Bad” / “I Will Follow”

U2 paid tribute to Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell in two ways at their first concert following his death – first by playing Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” prior to their show, and then by dedicating an especially heartfelt reading of “Running to Stand Still” to his memory. The band also moved up the Joshua Tree portion of the show, moving “Bad” to the encore.
