After three shows in Argentina, the U2360 tour moves on to Brazil, with the first of three shows in Sao Paulo at Estádio do Morumbi. Muse opens this show as they have all other shows on this leg of the tour.
After debuting on this tour in Argentina, “Even Better than the Real Thing” continues to be played, and it is back in the opening slot tonight for the show. “Beautiful Day” gets moved down to the middle of the set list again with “Real Thing” at the start. After missing a show in Argentina, “Magnificent” is back in the set list again this evening.
After “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” Bono takes a moment to wish Julian Lennon a happy birthday and asks the crowd to help him sing happy birthday, which they do. Lennon is at the show this evening. Bono dedicates “Stuck in a Moment” to Julian, calling it a song about friendship.
Ahead of “Beautiful Day” Bono pulls a girl from the audience to read the lyrics to a song called “Carinhoso”. He gives her a kiss and helps her back to the crowd after she finishes. The music of the song was written by Pixinguinha in 1917 and first released in 1928. In 1936 lyrics were composed by Braguinha, and it became a well loved and well known song in Brazil.
Bono met with President Dilma Rousseff before coming to Sao Paulo, and the salutes her and says “we’re so proud to be friends of Brazil”. He then discusses the school shooting that took place days before in Rio de Janeiro at the Tasso da Silveira school. “Moment of Surrender” is dedicated to the children lost, the families, the teachers and the people of Brazil. The names of the children lost were displayed on the screen throughout the song. Twelve children were killed in the school shooting, between the ages of 12 and 14. This show is held on the final of three days of mourning declared by the President in the wake of the shootings.
Snippets include “Anthem” during “Until the End of the World”, “Teenage Kicks” during “Vertigo”, “Two Tribes” during “I’ll Go Crazy” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” during “Walk On”. “Where the Streets Have No Name” includes both “Help!” and “All You Need is Love”.
Ahead of the show, U2 use “Trem das Onze” by Adoniran Barbosa as music preceding “Space Oddity”.
Although rehearsed extensively the previous day, “Zooropa” is not on the set list tonight.
The show goes on sale on December 7, 2010, with a pre-sale that starts via U2.com on December 1.
