U2 played night 1 of 3 in Mexico City last night. The setlist is here. The next shows in Mexico City are May 14th and 15th.
Last night they had three songs in the show with club, dance type remix action. (Although, are Magnificent and Even Better Than The Real Thing technically even remixes or just “different” versions of those songs?) Either way, each “remix” song offers a great opportunity for the dancing, which is a strength for the band’s singer.
If I could dance as AWESOMELY as Bono, I’d play all remixes, too. Particularly if said remixes allowed me to dance around underneath a trippy screen with images of Desmond Tutu’s talking head floating around. Screw the back catalog guys. More remixes!

The Even Better Than The Real Thing remix started the show.
The Crazy Tonight remix from Mexico City 1 includes an awesome Pop-tease from 4:20 on…
