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.

Band was on fire! Especially Bono, amazing voice during the concert. Later in the show (around vertigo/boots/elevation) he lost his voice, so when Bad started, I was kinda worried about the "Wide Awake!" part. But man did he nail it! Amazing!!! Was expecting a suprise song like 40 or Glastonbury. One of my favourite U2 shows ever!
Good quality sounding broadcast, shame of the beginning of Even Better, start of I Still Haven't Found, start of Sunday Bloody Sunday and the start of WOWY. Recording: "U2 in Glastonbury" - 5 stars
Audience was amazing, they sang along at almost every song.
Amazing show, one of my favourites! Band was on fire, audience on fire.

"It's this guy beating up his girlfriend about her searching for answers and just telling her to look around. It's like science fiction gospel. Edge is calling it country hip-hop."
- Bono on If God Will Send His Angels (Q Magazine, March 1997)

The song 'Even Better Than The Real Thing' is about sex on television and how the media uses sex to sell products. In the video the U2ers are inside a shop, as if they were 'for sale'.
