Remarks:

U2 makes its first live performance since their final concert of the 2015 Innocence + Experience tour in Paris on December 7, 2015. At the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV, Bono rumbles out with a fiery version of "Desire", complete with a provocative political stab against GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. In the middle of the performance, a video of Trump at one of his rallies is displayed on the screens where he says that the "American dream is dead". With background television sets showing Trump talking on a loop of "What have you got to lose?", Bono repeatedly exclaims out loud: "Everything!". Phony money then pours down from the rafters, mimicking a stunt used on U2's ZooTV tour when the band played "Desire" live. "With or Without You" was supposed to be performed after "I Still Haven't Found...", at least from seeing it on the setlist print-out, but for some reason it wasn't played.
