U2 returned to Tokyo, Japan for the first time in exactly 13 years (since their Vertigo Tour on December 4, 2006). In introducing "Bad", Bono talked to the audience saying: "Konbanwa. Thank you for your patience, thank you for waiting around... There's no good reason for why we haven't been back with you more... we feel we have a deep connection with Japan. This song is from an album called The Unforgettable Fire. It began its life with some anti-war drawings done by Japanese children, to remind us all what fear looks like and the primacy of peace. This song is about letting go of some things while holding on even tighter to others... it's called Bad." Later, Bono dedicated "Bullet the Blue Sky" to Brad Pitt as he was at tonight's show: "Brad, this is for you." At the start of the second set, a surprising announcement was made when the new SiriusXM channel U2X RADIO broadcasted "Elevation" live onto Howard Stern's show back in NYC. Bono said out loud: "...going live to New York from Tokyo... Let them hear you sing. U2X RADIO... First transmission... Let them hear ya... U2X RADIO... Are you ready to get elevated, ready to get radiated? Howard Stern, Can ya hear us? Why so... Sirius XM?"
