Remarks:

The second night in Sydney was full of surprises, including an unprecedented performance of "Love Rescue Me", performed for the first time live since January 10, 1990 in Rotterdam. Also, "All I Want Is You" was played for the first time on the U2 360 Tour and first time since the Vertigo Tour in 2006. Bono talked a lot about U2's history in Sydney, including Adam Clayton: "Adam Clayton version 2.0 started here in Sydney", referring to the bass player having a radical lifestyle change after missing a concert in Sydney on 1993's ZooTV Tour due to his alcoholism at the time. Bono also stated that The Unforgettable Fire tour started off in Sydney. Furthermore, with U2 performing "Love Rescue Me" (co-written by Bob Dylan), this tour marks the first time U2 has played at least four songs from the Rattle & Hum album since the ZooTV Tour. Finally, before the show, Bono appeared on Oprah Winfrey's TV special earlier at the Sydney Opera House.
