Zooropa, Scarlet, Ultraviolet - who'd have guessed these would be in the set list before this tour began more than two years ago?

All I Want is You, Stuck In A Moment, New Year's Day - who'd have guessed these would be in the set list before this show began a few hours ago ?

Or that by the time With Or Without You arrived, 'SHINE LIKE STARS' was trending worldwide on Twitter.

Plenty of surprises on a memorable evening in Montreal when another capacity audience at the Hippodrome, was joined by a global audience listening online.

'Tonight we want to give you as a gift to the world,' Bono announced. 'So tonight this show is being broadcast all over the world on U2.com, all over the world...'
'This has one extra benefit,' he added, 'you don't have to listen to me mangle your beautiful language.'

'Its a beautiful dawn in Germany, ' commented petrajohnk, in our live commentary running with the audio stream.
'Everybody hearing the amazing show!' said Wilson Oliveira in Brazil.
'Hi from Thailand' tweeted Norasate.
'Beautiful morning here in Denmark,' chimed Baron_Frederik, 'Sun is coming up and Montreal in my ears!'
'Sounds great and I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere in Australia' added Dexter.
'I connect my BOSE sound,' said Omar in Mexico 'And it sounds like having the claw at home, just perfect, hell yesssss.'

Whether you were in the stadium or in your bedroom, this show took off again tonight - and it's hard to believe there are only seven flights left.

'We've taken our space station around the world,' reflected Bono. 'We're nearly home, we're going to have to find something else to do.
'When we were kids joining U2 was like running away with the circus, maybe we need to find another circus...'
In the home city of Cirque du Soleil, 'maybe there are a few jobs going'. After all, Larry is a 'fire-eater, a sword-swallower, the world's strongest man.' Adam? 'The bearded lady...' Edge? 'Trapeze artist, high-wire act... and I will play the clown.'

It's also the home city of another friend of the band, Leonard Cohen and his 'Hallelujah' found a beautiful home in 'Streets'. 'Word of the night.' tweeted BigWaveU2, one of our Zoo Mods. 'Hallelujah #U2360MTL Streaming to the universe. Where the streets have no name. Future, pucker up.'

By the time With or Without You wherever we were in the world we were 'shining like stars in the summer night...'

THE BEST
I went to the Joshua Tree tour when I was 10 so seeing them again was a dream come true. The songs they played were unbelieveable!!! The show was magical and more than I ever imagined. I had tears in my eyes during Stuck in a Moment... and with or without You. Beautiful band, beautiful show, beautiful city!

Night 2 was...EPIC!
Flew in on Friday and basically checked in to the hotel and then headed to the Hippodrome. Nt. 1 was good, but Nt. 2 was EPIC!!! Well worth the flight up from Texas for the shows. Thanks for another great time, lads! I will follow you anywhere. <3 Cheers! Terri from Texas

U2 Don’t join the circus yet.
It was an amazing show. The sound, the lights and the seats were great. U2 managed to make a crowd of 80000 people sing all together and make you enjoy yourself, there were times that I couldn’t hear Bono on how loud the crowd was, but it was still amazing. The claw was enormous but the show felt as if you are in a small place. U2 I don’t know how you do it but mesmerizing a crowd of 80000 people is impossible but yet you managed to do it. A great rendition of Miss Sarajevo, Luciano must have been smiling from heaven. Another highlight Until the End of the World, I was drowning my sorrows but my sorrows learned to swim. Thank you for playing With or Without You...we will shine like stars in the summer Montreal night. Bono don’t run away and join the circus yet, remember some people of afraid of clowns. Adam has the bearded lady, I’m still having nightmares about that image. The Edge has a knife thrower I hope he has a good aim, and be careful he might use you has a target if you are going to be a clown. Larry well he can never be in a circus, maybe he can be a race car driver. Thanks U2 for a great show.

Thank You
For Zooropa! All I Want is You and Ultraviolet. And a beautiful night with a very fun and respectful crowd. Coming from MN, it was worth the trip and the wait! 30 years of being a fan and I have never been let down by a U2 show. This show was excellent!

Thank you from New Zealand
What an awesome way to spend a wintery Sunday afternoon. I have never been to Montreal but I was there with you. U2, you truly practice what you preach and brought the world together in that moment as One. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your beautiful and compelling music again with me. There are so many favourites it’s had to say which but Moment of Surrender would have to be right up there and Hallelujah was exquisite! All U2 fans are truly blessed by your talents and gifts and you draw me in every time and I was always follow. Don’t ever stop. Please let us share again one more time with your last concert. All my love, Louise

Worship of Goodness and Beauty
It was my first time going to U2 concert specially being from Ethiopia, Africa where there has never been any rock band visit i felt like i was immersed with full celebration of life in beautiful music and beautiful people around. I love it and i hope there will be a chance for me and others in Ethiopia to see them in Ethiopia.

Great Show
My second U2 show. I was a bit strapped and had no intention of going but the generosity of a fellow fan made it possible, I did not know what to expect form the show but I was overly pleased with it. Best gift I ever received from a total stranger!

une huit fantastique!
The company of my daughter; the balmy weather; the unique, lighthearted spirit of Montreal; red zone tickets; incredible visuals; incomparably great music. They all made the July 9th concert one of those magical events that I know will stay with me for a very, very long time to come. What a fantastic night! Thank you U2.

Montreal!
I was at the first show, and I was behind the stage! Oh no I thought....then the show started...Oh YES! I danced my heart out, I danced home in the pouring rain...what a night! The second show, I was in my jammies on my patio, with headphones on, eyes closed on a beautiful star filled night dancing again to music that was playing only 2 miles from where I stood....I was still connected, as if I was there. I am a first timer to a show. I know some of the music...the stuff I hear on the radio....and now I am a proud member of the global U2 family. I wish the show on the first night wasnt so late in starting and early in finishing. PLEASE!!! Cut a DVD of the second show. It sounded like a perfect show, and I know the fans in Montreal responded in kind. Every one across the world who chatted during the live stream commented on the quality of sound, and the setlist. An incredible show!! Thank you boys....you made the summer of 2011 memorable! PS...the XL shirt doesnt even go on me! Your sizes are out of whack!
