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.

'The show was great - …one of those that proves that U2 shows are something special and why (U2) is the band that matters…'

@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"

"Viva México.....Viva México!!" A magical night. A night to remember. Thank you guys for dedicating tonight's show to all the people than banded together as ONE during the recent earthquake in Mexico City and other states. Thank you for helping those in need here, that lost their homes and even loved ones... And yeah, thank you for those beautiful "Viva Mexico...Viva Mexico!!" ending lyrics in #One #TheJoshuaTree2017 #MexicoCity

Canadian in Mexico City for my 8th U2 Co
Too many songs to choose from, but pre-Joshua Tree, Out of Control and BAD would be amazing, post-Joshua, Stay, Who's Gonna Ride and Kite....(if they can be done with out the acoustic), the lyrics are so deep and meaningful. Viva México!!

U2 VISITA A MEXICO EN EL MEJOR MOMENTO
ES UN HECHO HASTA HOY Y NO HAY NOTICIAS DE QUE LOS CONCIERTOS DE MEXICO DF SE HAYAN POSPUESTO O SUSPENDIDO POR LOS DESAFORTUNADOS EVENTOS Y LA TRISTEZA QUE INVADE A NUESTRO PUEBLO MEXICANO. LO DIGO SIN TEMOR A EQUIVOCARME, QUE U2 VIENE A MEXICO EN EL MEJOR MOMENTO QUE PUDO HABER ESTADO A NUESTRO LADO, PREDICANDO PALABRAS DE ESPERANZA, UNION, FUERZA Y RESPETO POR LOS CAIDOS Y DESAPARECIDOS EN ESTE ULTIMO SISMO. ESPEREMOS EN DIOS QUE NO SE REPITA OTRO EVENTO COMO ESTE Y QUE LOS CONCIERTOS SEAN DE AYUDA Y RECONFORT PARA NUESTRO GRAN PUEBLO Y HERMOSAS CIUDADES DE MEXICO. GRACIAS U2 POR ACOMPAÑARNOS EN ESTE DOLOR POR EL CUAL ESTAMOS ATRAVEZANDO. HACE 2 DIAS ESTUVE EN EL CONCIERTO DE PHOENIX ARIZONA Y EL CONCIERTO TERMINO CON ONE, U2 APAGO LA LUZ DEL STAGE EN HONOR AL LUTO DEL PUEBLO MEXICANO Y ONE TODA LA CANCION PRACTICAMENTE A OBSCURAS.......TERMINANDO CON UN "FUERZA MEXICO" "VIVA MEXICO", "VIVA MEXICO"......MOMENTO QUE POR SIEMPRE RECORDARE. MIL GRACIAS U2!!!!!
