U2 contiues to amaze fans around the world. Helsinki setlist for the second night was a show that featured the premiere of “Every Breaking Wave” and most interesting first time tour arrival of “I will follow” the boys did bring back “No Line On The Horizon” and “Pride”.
“New Years Day and Sunday Bloody Sunday” had been dropped from the show for the first time since the early days of the tour back in 09.
This was a mixxed up show for sure. No Line featured an semi-accoustic sound, which during rehearsals sounded great and the possiblity of mixxing it back into the show was ok. It still needs a little work before we will call it a total accoustic song. “North Star” was on the side lines too as the band introduced another new song ” Every Breaking Wave” a ballad performed by Bono and The Edge. To finish the song out Bono told The Edge to adjust a chord for his finish and total the crowd this was the first time they both heard the song. We don’t rate shows however the boys earned “A+” for a totally different show.
