Comments: U2 wraps up its five-show residency at The Forum. After playing its standard "Innocence" opening set, things take a turn in a new direction during the second set. U2 plays "Volcano" for the first time this tour, and only the second time ever (after its debut on Later...With Jools Holland last fall). That's followed by "Ordinary Love," also getting its first performance of the tour and fourth ever. Later in the second set, U2 brings back "The Troubles," which hasn't been played since the first show of the tour in Vancouver. That gave tonight's show eight songs from Songs Of Innocence -- the most songs from U2's latest album of any show so far this tour -- and ten new songs overall, if you include "Invisible" and "Ordinary Love," both of which were released after U2's 360 tour.

"Every Breaking Wave" is delayed for several minutes when Edge's e-stage piano has problems. As the crew tries to get that taken care of, Bono stands on the e-stage talking to fans in the first few rows of general admission. He tells the crowd that U2 intends to play "The Crystal Ballroom" later in the tour -- something he said a couple weeks ago while meeting fans before a show. He also invites a fan dressed as Elvis Presley on stage, cracks a couple jokes with the guy, and then lets the fan lead the crowd in singing "Can't Help Falling In Love." (Since Bono didn't sing and since no member of U2 played any part of the song, we're not counting it as part of the set list.) After about a five-minute delay, Edge eventually walks back to the main stage to use the piano there and the show resumes with "Every Breaking Wave."

Robert Plant is one of many celebrities at the show, prompting Bono to sing a couple Led Zeppelin snippets.
