Triple Encore to cap off an awesome show in Boston last night @ 06:40 pm

this tour has been going on since March and supposedly last night was a record setting night with a triple encore, here' what U2.com has to say about it:

A triple bill encore in Boston, on the first of two final shows here for Vertigo 05. We counted 24 songs in the show tonight. Is this a record ? Here's the set list, more detail to follow.

City of Blinding Lights
I Will Follow
Still Haven’t Found
Beautiful Day
Original of the Species
Sometimes You Can’t Make it On Your Own
Love and Peace or Else
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bullet The Blue Sky
Miss Sarajevo
Pride in the Name of Love
Where the Streets have no Name

Until the End of the World
Mysterious Ways
With or Without You

Stuck in a Moment
40 (a snippet of sorts, it was longer than a typical snippet)

There were snippets of a lot of Beatles songs and "The Hands that Built America" also.

All Because of You
Fast Cars

--Only missing a few of the All Time best like "New Year's Day" But man, what a dream set list?

Best parts of the night besides the music:
All the adlibs into Beatles songs including "Sgt. Pepper's", "All you Need is Love", and "Here Comes the Sun";

Bono and The Edge racing around the loop stage in different directions during "Until the End of the World";

Bono's anecdote about his Father before "Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own" (written for his funeral) saying that their conversations over the
decade before he died consisted of "Would you take those fucking sunglasses off" so he played the song for him without the glasses on haha;

Bono telling the story about how The Edge is really from the future and how he came to Dublin in the 70's from a far off place called Boston Massachusetts;

the creation of a "Milky Way" in the stadium by having everyone take out their cellphones (then used to advocate people to Text their names to sign the ONE Declaration) then he talked about AIDs relief advocates like Ashley Judd who was there as well.

I was going to go to this show, but I chose to go to Hartford instead because it's closer. And now I'm kicking myself, what a great set list. I only hope they play something similar on Wednesday, I'd kill to hear Until the End of the World live.
