Comments: U2 perform in front of the Brandenburg Gate as a prelude to the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. The event, although ticketed, was free and broadcast as part of MTV's 2009 Europe Music Awards. One and especially Magnificent are abbreviated versions. Jay-Z guest-raps in Sunday Bloody Sunday. Beautiful Day has the extended "we love you" intro, used for the first time since 20 September 2009. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

The six songs they played were all pretty powerfull. One, Magnificent and Beautiful Day were average. Sunday Bloody Sunday, Vertigo and Moment of Surrender were all nailed.
Obviously the broadcasted songs have top sound, the audience ones arent that good. Still enjoyable though.
Average crowd, from where I was standing there were not many people single along, but listening to the broadcast and audience recording, they were still making some noise.
Great to be there, special location for a special city. Sunday Bloody Sunday is great with Jay Z, Vertigo is also rocking ('Achtung Baby!') and Moment of Surrender is still beautiful as a closer. I would rate it 4.5 stars if they played Stay.

"We didn't do the hit because I'd gone AWOL to try and find a television moment and forgot about the song. The band were very, very upset - they nearly fired me."

Get On Your Boots is about Bono taking his family on vacation to France and witnessing warplanes flying overhead at the start of the Iraq War. The chant "let me in the sound" was developed late in the recording sessions and became a theme throughout parts of the album.
