Comments: U2 return to Las Vegas for their first offical tour stop there since the 360 tour in 2009. The setlist ends up being the same as the last show in San Jose. It's the first time on this tour to feature identical sets at back-to-back shows.

Tonight’s "Beautiful Day" name check features Bono’s daughters Jordan and Eve - who are both at the show - along with Bono’s wife, Ali.

"Desire" has an extended intro, but not intentionally. Something's wrong with Edge's guitar, prompting guitar tech Dallas Schoo to run all the way out to the e-stage with a replacement while Bono talks to fill time. A few songs later, Bono extends “American Soul" in an attempt to start a crowd sing-a-long.

Just like the last two cities on the tour - St. Louis and San Jose - the Las Vegas skyline is featured on the screen during "City Of Blinding Lights."

Before "One," Bono mentions the Las Vegas mass shooting from last year and says that he's offering the song as a prayer to those affected, but adds that "thoughts and prayers are not enough."
