Miami, FL, US / Hard Rock Stadium
with OneRepublic


When & Where
Sunday, June 11th 2017. Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, Florida. Night 12 of #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

Set List
The opening: Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day, Bad, and Pride opened the show. A six-song encore followed The Joshua Tree, closing the night with a new entry to the tour setlist: Vertigo! 
Here's the complete set list from Miami.  

In The Press
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
'Addressing a crowd dotted with Irish flags, Colombian flags, Venezuelan flags, Brazilian flags and rainbow flags, bandleader Bono interrupted a version of "Bad," with a request. "Permit us a meditation on your country," he said, before leading the audience in several full-throated repetitions of a refrain from "America" by Simon and Garfunkel: "All come to look for Amehhh-rica."
It was one of many reminders during the night of the singular power of U2, among pop-music acts, to create moments of surprising intimacy that unite tens of thousands of people, singing along for most of the night, in an almost literal group hug...'

If You Had To Pick One Song
'Mothers of the Disappeared'
'In the wind we hear their laughter/In the rain we see their tears.'

From @ariodzernbc6 : 'So many transcendent moments at tonight's @U2 show in Miami. One of my favorites was Mothers of the Disappeared.' 

What (else) did Bono Say?
'It's mass movements that change history. I think that's something to always hold onto—the power of the people is so much stronger than the people in power,' Bono said during the intro to One, where he talked about the tangible difference organized groups (such as The ONE campaign and its 8 million members around the globe) can make toward making the world a more equitable place. 'The government should fear the people not the other way around,' he said, giving shout outs to Tom Freston (Chairman of the Board for ONE) and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a Miami native and longtime supporter/collaborator with the ONE Campaign. 'I want to thank him tonight,' Bono said of Rubio. "These budget cuts by this president could undo the work, the great work, of the United States of America. So send him a message. This country does incredible things when it works together as one." 

As the show concluded in the tropical heat of south Florida, Bono thrilled the crowd by shouting 'MIAMI, MY MAMMY!'  a line from 'Miami,' a rarity from the Pop album. (The band hasn't played 'Miami' live since Sept. 11, 1997 in Lisbon, Portugal.)

    A Sort of Homecoming
    I am with you gpmalecki! This was the one song, aside from the JT album in full length, that I was really looking forward to hearing live! Sunday, June 25th in Foxboro, PLEASE bring back ASOH for ALL to hear this gem performed!!
    A Sort of Homecoming
    After reviewing the past few nights set lists, I really hope you aren't shelving this song. When I heard Homecoming in rehearsals and then the first few nights, I was revelling in the fact of hearing this live again in Miami. Now, it looks as though it may be through, and I'm not sure why. I'll just humbly ask that you keep it in the mix... Don't just give it to New York or Boston. All of us old-school, die-hards want it!
    please play "seconds"
    i would love to hear this song SECONDS would you kindly play it? highlights each musician and especially Larry's drums! It would be a great song to end on! Thanks! I Love U2
