Performance notes: Bono and Edge and other stars gather to honour former US President Bill Clinton’s charitable work and 65th birthday at the A Decade Of Difference concert. The set by Bono and Edge is the last of the evening and their performance features the live debut of A Man And A Woman, almost seven years after its release. It was dedicated to Chelsea Clinton and her husband Mark. Staring At The Sun was performed for the first time since 24 October 2001. Earlier in the evening, Bono appeared with K'Naan for a song; this appearance has a separate listing. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

I wish I could see the band doing something like MTV Unplugged, and this concert (although with Bono and The Edge only) is the closest thing to that.

This show points out three things:
1) if they want, they're still a band full of new and original ideas
2) Bono still has a great voice
3) Pop exists, but as Edge said "who knows Last Night On Earth?". Surely, not the 70% of the people who goes at their concerts just to hear the usual hits or the new tunes.

JEMS decided to record last night's show in spite of a worldwide webcast remembering what happened with 2009's Rose Bowl show. Because webcasts are inherently lossy, they can't be traded here or any other proper tracker, leaving us with nothing on U2T and largely MP3 versions elsewhere.
We had seats up close to the PA and I think the tape came out well.
The setlist certainly contains some major surprises. "A Man and a Woman" was dedicated the Chelsea Clinton and her husband Marc. It was more of a curiosity but still cool. "Staring at the Sun" fared much better and was easily the highlight of the night. But make no mistake, the boys struggled a bit and the show never really found a rhythm. But credit to them for playing three songs you wouldn't have expected.
Hope you enjoy.

"I get tired of writing in the first person. The idea of writing in the third person is a real break for me. A lot of U2 songs are in the first person, that's why they play well live. They're not story songs, we don't do story songs really."
