U2 Tours (formerly part of AtU2): A Comprehensive Guide To U2’s Live Performance History

About U2Tours.com

U2tours.com began in 2000 as a joint effort of U2 fan site webmasters and other fans from around the world. It grew in size and scope over the years before becoming a permanent part of @U2 in 2015. Following the closure of @U2, U2Tours.com relaunched in 2021. As always, we are dedicated to tracking and cataloging U2 setlists, concert dates, and all other information related to U2’s legendary live performances. 

Currently, the site is maintained by a small group of fans formerly associated with @U2. But we recognize that a huge number of fans and site owners have given time and effort to make the site what it is today. We are eternally thankful to each and every one of them. While we've tried to credit everyone, if your name is missing please contact us at news@u2tours.comU2Tours.com could not be what it is today without the work of the following fans and fan sites:

A Word On Snippets

From a setlist perspective, U2 concerts are unique due to Bono’s habit of singing short bits of other songs during U2 songs. In the U2 Community, these short verses are known as “snippets.” Some of them recur night after night, but many others are spontaneous and often fleeting. These snippets can range from just a few words to full verses, or in rarer occasions, a musical measure played by The Edge. 

So how do we decide if something is a snippet or a full song? When it's a very short snippet of another song while U2 continues to play the main song, we won't include it in the proper setlist, but we will include it as a snippet. When it's a longer snippet, and/or when the main song stops so the other song can be sung/played, we will include it as a separate entry in the setlist. For other recognizable song additions that are neither snippets nor separate songs (like Bono's famous Shine Like Stars coda in "With Or Without You") we will list them as a part of the song in question, but not as a snippet. Anything else will be listed in the Notes section for each concert date. 

We're always interested in hearing any suggestions or corrections you have to the setlists we post. The best way to do that is to email us here or find us on Twitter and provide as much evidence as you can to explain why you think we got it wrong. We're always happy to hear from you!
