comment: This is the last time U2 cover Bob Dylan's song Maggie's Farm. However, two years later, Bono comes on stage at a Dylan concert in Dublin and they perform the song together. Bono pulls a guest guitarist on stage for People Get Ready. At the end, Bono asks the guy if he's in a band - he is, and the other band members are also at the concert. They come up on stage and play a messy Knockin' On Heaven's Door cover with U2.

comment: This is the only Scandinavian show of the tour. It was originally scheduled for Ullevi Stadion; however, ongoing repairs there in the wake of a Bruce Springsteen concert force a change of venue.

06/12/1987 Wembley Stadium - London, England
Where The Streets Have No Name, I Will Follow, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Exodus (snippet), MLK, The Unforgettable Fire, Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Exit / Riders On The Storm (snippet) / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet), In God's Country, Trip Through Your Wires, People Get Ready, Bad / Biko (snippet) / Ruby Tuesday (snippet) / Sympathy For The Devil (snippet), October, New Year's Day, Pride (In The Name Of Love)

06/15/1987 The Zenith - Paris, France
Where The Streets Have No Name, I Will Follow, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Exodus (snippet), MLK, The Unforgettable Fire, Bullet The Blue Sky / Hallelujah (Here She Comes) (snippet), Running To Stand Still, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Exit / Riders On The Storm (snippet) / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet), In God's Country, Trip Through Your Wires, Help, Springhill Mining Disaster, Bad / Ruby Tuesday (snippet) / Sympathy For The Devil (snippet), October, New Year's Day, Pride (In The Name Of Love)
encores: Party Girl, Sweet Jane / (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (snippet) / All Along The Watchtower (snippet), Gloria, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet) / Love Will Tear Us Apart (snippet), 40
comment: Sweet Jane is performed with Maria McKee of Lone Justice.

Although Hallelujah Here She Comes was not released until September 1988 as a b-side for Desire, Bono very clearly snippets it two minutes into Bullet The Blue Sky. This snippet seems plausible as other songs developed during the Joshua Tree era were not released or played until much later (Heartland was initially considered for The Joshua Tree before being kept for Rattle And Hum, and although it didn't debut live until 30 December 1989, She's A Mystery To Me was soundchecked on 7 November 1987).

06/17/1987 Muengersdorfer Stadion - Cologne, Germany
Stand By Me, C'mon Everybody, I Will Follow, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Exodus (snippet), MLK, The Unforgettable Fire, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Exit / Riders On The Storm (snippet) / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet), In God's Country, The Electric Co. / Light My Fire (snippet) / Break On Through (snippet), Help, Bad / Ruby Tuesday (snippet) / Sympathy For The Devil (snippet), New Year's Day, Pride (In The Name Of Love)
encores: Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet) / Love Will Tear Us Apart (snippet), Party Girl, 40
comment: A second concert at this venue was scheduled for the next day but does not take place. Due to overly bureaucratic procedures by the promoter, tension develops over tickets and thousands are stuck in rain-drenched queues outside even as the support acts play. They are ultimately let in but the atmosphere is poor when U2 take the stage.

06/21/1987 St Jakob's Stadion - Basel, Switzerland
Stand By Me, C'mon Everybody, I Will Follow, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Exodus (snippet), MLK, The Unforgettable Fire, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Exit / Riders On The Storm (snippet) / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet), In God's Country, The Electric Co. / Break On Through (snippet), Help, Bad / Walk On The Wild Side (snippet) / Sympathy For The Devil (snippet), October, New Year's Day, Pride (In The Name Of Love)
encores: Bullet The Blue Sky / The Battle Hymn Of The Republic (snippet), Running To Stand Still, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet) / Love Will Tear Us Apart (snippet), Party Girl, 40
comment: Only show of the European leg of the Joshua Tree Tour that does not sell out. The capacity is 50,000 but only about 40,000 people attend.

06/24/1987 King's Hall - Belfast, Northern Ireland
Stand By Me, Where The Streets Have No Name, I Will Follow, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Exodus (snippet), MLK, The Unforgettable Fire, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Exit / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet), In God's Country, The Electric Co. / Light My Fire (snippet) / Break On Through (snippet), People Get Ready, Help, Bad / Walk On The Wild Side (snippet), October, New Year's Day, Pride (In The Name Of Love)

encores: Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet) / Love Will Tear Us Apart (snippet), Party Girl, 40
comment: Last performance of A Sort Of Homecoming until 25 August 2001. During Exit, Bono plays a brief snippet of Lou Reed's Street Hassle on guitar.

06/28/1987 Croke Park - Dublin, Ireland

encores: Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet) / Love Will Tear Us Apart (snippet), Party Girl, 40
comment: Broadcast on British TV as part of Island Records' 25th birthday celebration and subsequently released as a bonus DVD with the Joshua Tree remaster in 2007. The first two songs and Help are not included, presumably due to copyright issues. During With Or Without You, a tear gas bomb goes off in front of stage and Bono halts the performance to make sure the crowd is OK. When the song resumes, he improvises an extra verse of lyrics.

encores: Bullet The Blue Sky / The Battle Hymn Of The Republic (snippet), Running To Stand Still, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet), Party Girl, 40
comment: After a fan organises a petition with more than 10,000 signatures requesting U2 to play Wales, this concert is booked. It is only the second rock concert at Cardiff Arms Park (David Bowie was first in June 1987). Bono explains that the show is particularly special for The Edge, who is of Welsh heritage. He says that Edge's father would say "one day my boy will play Cardiff Arms Park", but meant rugby, not music. So Edge is given a rugby ball and he kicks it well into the crowd.
