The setlist is shuffled slightly with "Miss Sarajevo" making an appearance as the third song of the encore this time around. After "One", Bono leads the audience in singing Happy Birthday to Island Records founder Chris Blackwell (turning 80 on June 22), who is in attendance at tonight's show. Other celebrities spotted at tonight's show included musician Jon Bon Jovi, actor Colin Farrell and chef Mario Batali.
