Comments: U2 returns to the Washington, D.C. metro area for their first official concert since 2009. With a large contingent of ONE staff and DC politicians in the house, Bono name checks several of them during the show.

During “Bad,” Bono mentions the recent shooting in Alexandria and is glad that U.S. Representative Steve Scalise made it through okay.

“Still Haven’t Found" is dedicated to Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick of Washington, D.C. 

“One Tree Hill” is dedicated to Emma Oxford and her husband Michael Elliott, former president of the ONE Campaign, who passed away last year.

Later, before “Ultraviolet,” Bono thanks Congresswomen Kay Granger and Nancy Pelosi.

"Beautiful Day" features a new intro including audio of speeches from Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

And finally, in one of the most bizarre endings to a U2 concert, after “Vertigo,” Bono brings a fan on stage. While Larry performs a drumroll, the guy performs a handstand. Afterwards, the band wave goodbye quickly and leave the stage.
