Comments: U2 opened the brand new, state of the art Sphere in Las Vegas. In addition to being the first-ever concert performed in the venue, it was a notable evening for U2. It was the first traditional concert performance since the end of the Joshua Tree 2019 Tour in Mumbai. It was also the first full concert since 1993 in Sydney without a member of the band, as Bram van den Berg filled in for Larry Mullen Jr. as he recovered from surgery. 

In terms of the setlist, the band dusted all a number of songs that hadn't been heard in a while. Bono added the additional "I Could Have Lost You" lyrics, updated to "I Could Have Found You," at the beginning of "Zoo Station." "Love Rescue Me" returned to the set after only three performances on the 360 Tour. Achtung Baby was performed in its entirety, although not sequentially. Songs such as "Love Is Blindness" and "So Cruel" were highlights here, as neither had been heard on stage since 1993 and 1992 respectively (except for a single performance of "Love Is Blindness" in 2006). 

Paul McCartney was in the crowd, so Bono worked in a number of Beatles snippets throughout the evening.

Special thanks to Ian Ryan for providing the setlist and snippets.
