Comments: The second leg of The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 begins with an early start time due to a very strict 10:30 PM curfew. Noel Gallagher's band takes the stage promptly at 6:30 PM local time and U2 begins its show at about 8:15 PM -- much earlier than the North American shows during the first leg.

The early start means that the sky is still a bright blue during the first half of the show. Bono calls for cellphone lights to be held up during "Bad," but it's not quite the same effect in daylight. Ditto for when the screen comes on and turns a bright red at the start of "Streets."

Some changes are made in the production to account for the location change. During "Miss Sarajevo," Omaima doesn't talk about her dream of visiting America, but instead of becoming a lawyer -- a change that was also in place for the first leg shows in Canada. But other elements are unchanged: The video during "Trip Through Your Wires" still shows the US flag being painted on a barn, for example, and the Trackdown/Trump video clip is used before "Exit."

Perhaps accidentally, Bono reveals during "Trip Through Your Wires" that Adam Clayton and his wife, Mariana, are expecting a baby. He wonders out loud, "Am I allowed to say that?" Near the end of the show, Bono leads the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday" for his daughter, Eve, who's at the show. (She turned 26 yesterday.) "Ultraviolet" is dedicated to Jo Cox, the UK MP who was murdered a year ago. After "One," Bono dedicates the show to U2's former manager, Paul McGuinness, who's also at the show. And after the band plays it's new song, "The Little Things That Give You Away," they return to the main stage for a surprise: Noel Gallagher comes on stage and joins U2 in covering the Oasis' hit "Don't Look Back In Anger," which Gallagher dedicates to the people of Manchester. It's the first time U2 has ever covered that Oasis song.

The show comes in at 24 songs (including "Happy Birthday"), making it the longest show of the tour so far.

In addition to those mentioned above, also at the show are Nick Stewart, who signed U2 to Island Records in 1980, along with Elvis Costello, Ashley Judd and Simon Cowell.
