Comments: Instead of Space Oddity, U2 takes the stage to a Get On Your Boots remix (Soweto Gospel Choir version), then starts the show with Beautiful Day. Legendary South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela joins the band during I Still Haven't Found. But the night belongs to Nelson Mandela on the 21st anniversary of his first public rally after being released. Pride includes a videotaped speech by Mandela, and several other mentions include Bono dedicating Moment of Surrender to him. In light of recent news, the video screen shows images of Egypt and Tunisia during Sunday Bloody Sunday. The band performs Scarlet, but Bono talks over the song instead of singing 'rejoice'.
