The set looks good, and it's pretty cool they played "Out of Control" after MOS (strange switch though).

However, I can't BELIEVE they didn't  play single new song there! Are you kidding? Not even Glastonbury?!

I think it's safe to say the flowering rose of Glastonbury is officially wilted.

Ha, good one!

Well, at least we have that cover version from youtube!

And how in the hell did they not play "When Loves Comes to Town" with the great BB in the house?! Missed opportunity, as the man is almost 86. It would be sad if they didn't have another chance to play it with him...

Over 70% of the people that voted on this poll were wrong.

"Glastonbury" didn't get played at Glastonbury

I am sad that it didn't, but the performance was more than adequate, despite the hand of God trying to intervene throughout.

The opening five songs rocked, but I was surprised that U2 played Streets so early in the set. Surely it would have made more sense to have had Streets as the closing song on the set-list?

The only problem I had with the set was Streets coming sooner rather than later. The other nitpick was not playing the song named after the festival while you're playing at the festival:D

I hope not. It's a pretty good tune.

It's pretty likely we won't hear a studio version...
