U2 Innocence + Experience tour opener, Vancouver

U2 kicked off their Innocence + Experience Tour with a stunning mix of music, showmanship and technology at the Roger’s Arena in Vancouver on May 14, 2015.

The band relied heavily on tracks from the new album, Songs of Innocence, for the first half of the show. But they didn’t disappoint fans, throwing in classics such as Where the Streets Have No Name and With or Without You. U2 even played their first single in Canada, Out of Control.

The show ended on I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. As the band walked from one end of the arena to the other to exit, The Edge mistepped and took a tumble. Fortunately, he walked away with only minor scrapes.

“The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)”
