Performance notes: U2 make their first ever appearance at the Glastonbury Festival, headlining Friday night 2011. They were originally one of 2010's headliners but had to pull out in May 2010 due to Bono's back surgery. Bad is played for just the second time in 2011; Out Of Control for just the third time in 2011. When performed, Moment Of Surrender is normally last in the set - this is just the second time it appears in a spot other than the closer, following U2's appearance on Saturday Night Live on 2009-09-26. The only three songs in the set which are not singles are Until The End Of The World, Bad, and Moment Of Surrender. An archive of tweets for this show can be found here.

A bit of a dodgy start to the show with real thing, after edge plays a nice solo things go a bit wrong but they do get it back on track. Streets also has technical issues at the beginning of the song I think a volume and/or an effects issue but again they just about recover it. Bono doesn’t quite manage the ooh’s in WOWY but it didn’t take away anything from that song performance for me. The other songs were performed without any stand out errors so very good.
Great sound quality. Recording: "Dafy Mix" - 5 stars
The crowd sounded very good singing along when you’d expect. Although they were probably equally as enthusiastic about the snippets of non u2 songs as the sing along bits in u2 songs but still they did their bit.
I think 4/5 is very fair. Some details could have made for a better show, the Setlist wasn’t as exciting as some 360 shows and some song inclusions were bad choices for a festival but the band performed the vast majority of the gig very well.
