This was my first U2 show and I enjoyed it! :)

One question: at the start of Beautiful Day, was there a tape of Bono's voice in it?

yep

Before the band comes in, or The Edge starts it off, it's a backing track. It's Bono's voice from the record

It surprised me. I never noticed on live versions of other tours.

That's because it's only on this tour.
It's basically on the intro before The Edge starts of the song properly. Rest of the song is live and Bono's vocals are live, just a backing track for the intro.
It's more to compliment the lights at the start.

Wouldn't let it surprise you. Plenty of bands do it.

Aha. I knew they use a lot backing track like synthensizers and guitar, but I can't remember they did it with lyrics

Another question about Running To Stand Still. Was this the first time this tour they used the 'hallelujah' part or wasn't it listed before?
