Comments: U2 plays the Glastonbury Festival for the first time. During the show, Bono sings several lines from ‘Jerusalem’, a song based on William Blake’s poem, And Did Those Feet In Ancient Times. The Fly includes the full Zoo TV tour visuals, as do Mysterious Ways and One. Astronaut Mark Kelly appears on video before Beautiful Day as he’s done on the 360 tour. Bono snippets The Beatles, The Clash and Coldplay. They also revisit Live Aid, playing Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bad together, and even Pride next – the song they were supposed to play at Live Aid. U2, especially Bono, gives this performance everything, and the crowd responds in kind. By the end, it seems U2 has won the night. via U2Tours.com
