Remarks:

U2 was back in Philadelphia for the first time since 2011 (as they skipped the city during 2015's Innocence + Experience Tour). Tonight's show featured the tour debut of "Mysterious Ways" with Edge's guitar slide solo included (the slide solo hadn't been featured in a live U2 concert since 2006 on the Vertigo Tour). Bono dedicated "One Tree Hill" to Dennis Sheehan's wife who was at tonight's show. Bono also namechecked Michael Coppel, U2's Australian and New Zealand concert promoter, as well as Chris Coons, the Democrat Delaware Senator. Famous filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is also spotted in the Red Zone at tonight's show.
