U2 in Denver at Invesco Field, What to expect tonight: (likely) setlist, parking info and more
Update, 2 p.m., Sunday:
Read the review and see photos from the U2 at Invesco Field concert last night
Alright, so near as we can tell, when U2 takes the stage tonight at Invesco (after Isaac Slade and local homeboys in The Fray warm up the stage), the band's set will consist of two-dozen songs, possibly 25. Since the 360° Tour first kicked off in Barcelona in June 2009, the setlist has changed rather dramatically. So it's hard to say what the outfit has in store for Denver. But judging from the songs played at U2's private dress rehearsal at Invesco last night, and on the last three shows in Mexico, the show begins with "Even Better Than the Real Thing" and then immediately segues into a song from one of the early albums (thus far, "I Will Follow," "Out of Control" and "New Year's Day").

From there, the band has pretty consistently delved into "Get On Your Boots," "Magnificent," "Mysterious Ways," "Elevation," followed by, appropriately enough, considering it's Judgement Day and all, "Until The End Of The World." After that, it appears the act sort of zig zags in a free-form sort of way through its catalog with songs from Unforgettable Fire and the Joshua Tree-era woven in with more recent material like "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight," from No Line on the Horizon, as well as bits from War, Zooropa, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb and others.
Looks like you can expect a two-song encore, broken up into two songs in the first and ending with three more. There's a few other things in store. For more of that, check out the clip below featuring the Edge talking about the 360° Tour.
