Comments: It's the second show in Pasadena, and the first time U2 has played two shows in the same city. And that seems to be all the reason U2 needs to mix up tonight's setlist -- at least where they can. The pre-Joshua Tree part of the show shrinks by one song for the second consecutive show -- it's now just three songs, after having been five songs for the first three shows of the tour.

During "With Or Without You," Bono gets the die-hards in the audience riled up by saying "we'll shine like stars" right before the song's climax ... but then he doesn't actually sing it. After dedicating "Running To Stand Still" to the late Chris Cornell last night, tonight Bono dedicates "One Tree Hill" to him.

After the album is when song order really changes. First up is "Miss Sarajevo" with a shortened spoken intro from Omaima, the 15-year-old who's the centerpiece of the song's visuals. That leads into "Bad" and these form a two-song first encore. U2 leaves the stage again, albeit briefly, and returns to begin what has been the standard encore so far -- as far as things can be considered standard after 10 days, that is. "The Little Things That Give You Away" returns after missing one show and closes out the concert. At 21 songs, it's the shortest show -- by one song -- of the tour so far. "A Sort Of Homecoming" is the missing song, left out for the first time this tour.

Helena Christensen, Cindy Crawford, Sean Penn, Matt Damon, Quincy Jones, Chris Martin, Adam Levine and Jimmy Kimmel are among the celebrities reportedly at the show. Bono namechecks Dave Grohl during "Bullet The Blue Sky," so he's probably there, too.
