When & Where
Tuesday, October 3rd 2017, For Sol, Mexico City. Night 42 of #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 Tour.

After the conclusion of U.S. shows last month, as friends from fansite atu2.com noted, this is the first visit to Latin America this time around. South of the border, the Coda of The Joshua Tree live has begun. (*coda - "concluding passage in a musical composition," from the Latin 'cauda', "tail of an animal.")

The tail of the animal.
Set List :
Act 1 : Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Years Day, Bad (during which Bono called out to "sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts… spirit of Mexico City", and joined the crowd in singing a snippet of the popular 'Ay y Ay Ay' Mexican / Spanish love song - 'Cielito Lindo'), concluding with Pride.
Act 2 : The Joshua Tree full album
Act 3 : Beautiful Day, Elevation, Vertigo, You're The Best Thing About Me, Ultra Violet (Light My Way). One, Spanish Eyes.

@operadormx (via twitter)
'Sencillamente no hay manera de ver a @U2 sin soltar una lagrimita,recuerdos,increíbles canciones,memorables!! #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 gracias! '
(translated : 'There is simply no way to see @U2 without dropping a tear, memories, incredible songs, memorable !! # U2TheJoshuaTree2017 thank you!' )

If You Had To Pick One Song
Spanish Eyes. "lets try something… could be a bit shit… lets try it!… this was a B-side on The Joshua Tree… we tried it in rehearsal it was pretty shit.. I mean the way we played it! the song is AWESOME!"
Tour debut for full band / full song version of Spanish Eyes… 


What (else) did Bono say : 
"The Irish and The Mexicans are kindred spirits… yes we are… we're survivors, we're innovators, we're travellers… but above all else we're fighters". 

"We're so honoured to be with you in this moment - en este momento".

"Incredible women have always led the way in this country. We've seen them on your streets lately… women and men, sisters and brothers… people working on the streets after the earthquake here in the city and out into the country… sisters and brothers…This country has been through a lot in the last few weeks but over the years… (theres) nothing you can't do when your work together as one".

"Take the lights down again.. and think about everyone who lost their life… back to that moment… the moment that we will never forget… mucho gracias"

Un objetivo mas cumplido
Después de ver la gira, Vértigo y la de 360 en el estadio Azteca, el sueño de mi esposa y el mio fue: Ojalá algún día tengamos la oportunidad de llevar a Leo a un concierto de U2. ¿Porque? Porque, espero que entienda lo mucho que significa esto para nosotros. No solo porque el rack donde se guardamos los CD's está en su mayoría abarcado por discos de U2. No solamente porque en los playlist, incluimos al menos una de sus canciones. Sino por lo mucho que significa un concierto de U2 EN VIVO!!!! Leo, finalmente entendió que no es lo mismo escuchar todos las canciones en su ipod, o ver miles de videos en YOUTUBE, sino que estar presente en un concierto de esta banda irlandesa, tiene un significado diferente, lleno de emociones, lleno de emotividad, lleno de empoderamiento, lleno de esperanza, lleno de fe, lleno de coros cantar la misma canción, lleno de luces, lleno de magia, lleno de color, todo envuelto en un mismo lugar y en un mismo tiempo. Gracias U2, por ser parte de nuestra familia.

#U2 Timeless music that shakes your soul
A journey that started with great performance from Noel Gallagher, to the powerful sound of The Whole of the Moon from Waterboys to let us know that a Magical Night is about to start. Sudden, Larry Mullen showed up and walks down to play a war march of Sunday Bloody Sunday, followed by The Edge, Bono and Adam. The following 3 songs New Years Day, Bad and Pride (in the name of love) was all about U2 playing to delight all of us gathered at Foro Sol with their music at the very best pure state. It was just them and us. And then, all changed.... Massive screen turned red, while the hypnotizing chords followed by the thrilling screeching notes coming out of The Edge's guitar will turn goose flesh into an explosion of music that makes us all jump, sing and enjoy the rest of the evening with an epic night of rock and roll. Thank you U2 for a night to remember for the rest of our lives with your music that will live in eternity.
