The second of two shows in Zagreb happens on a Monday evening. This is the show that was initially announced when tickets went on sale, with a second show held the day before announced only after sales are good. Tonight the weather is a little more dicey than the previous night, rain is expected, but the band is well equipped to play in such settings, but in the end it doesn’t matter, they get a beautiful cloudless sky. Like the first show in Zagreb, the show is opened by Snow Patrol. (The Hours possibly opened as well, but are not listed in the Billboard show documentation.)
Like has happened at other shows, a fan organized activity sees balloons fill the stadium at the start of the show, mostly white, but some orange and green as well. The balloons are organized by Josipa, and supported by the local U2 fan club.
During “Mysterious Ways” Bono brings a female fan named Simona out of the audience to dance on stage. She had been holding a sign declaring “Free Belly Dance!” It’s the first time “Mysterious Ways” has appeared in a while, last played at the first show in Gothenburg.
A sign of a special evening, Bono includes the “Shine Like Stars” verse during “With or Without You” tonight, the second and last time it’s been included on this leg of the tour. The Desmond Tutu video which ends with Tutu declaring “we are one!” appears ahead of “One” tonight instead of leading into “Where the Streets Have No Name”. It seems to make more sense here.
Snippets for the show include “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” as part of “Mysterious Ways”, a long bit of “Stand By Me” at the end of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “She Loves You” as part of “Vertigo”. “I Don’t Want to Join the Army” and “Two Tribes” appear in “I’ll Go Crazy” and “Walk On” gets “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. “All You Need is Love” appears in “Where the Streets Have No Name”.
Like the previous night, Bono also includes some of the poem “Dubravka” as part of “Beautiful Day”. The poem is by Croatian poet, Ivan Gundulic.
Ahead of the show tonight U2 is rehearsing a song not yet played, “Your Blue Room”. It won’t make it into the set list until the tour goes to North America however.
