When & Where
Final night of a great week in France, AccordHotels Arena, Paris, Wednesday, September 13th, 2018.

Set List
Before the final song of the night, Bono recited a verse from 'Streets Of Surrender', written for a friend, and dedicated to the time the band were here after The Bataclan in 2015 :

"Every man has got two cities he needs to be
The one he can touch and the one he can't see
The one where a stranger's a friend
Everyman has got one city of liberty
For me it's Paris…"

Here's the full setlist from the final night in Paris.

(translated :) Thank you very much to U2 for these 4 great dates at the AccorHotels Arena. Complete and humble artists, cult songs, a breathtaking scenography and especially a loyal audience!

What Did Bono Say?
(as Macphisto) "It's not good evening… it's goodbye. But as i leave Paris, my melancholy is tempered by the knowledge that my people are arriving all over Europe… they go by many names, my people… In Sweden they call themselves 'Democrats; Sweden Democrats.' In France, they keep changing their names. In Italy they have too many names. In Poland they have names even I can't pronounce. So many names, my little cabbages… But they all have one face. And its' mine!'
