Event: Opening For U2
Leg: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017
Venue: Ford Field
Country: United States
Beck is opening U2's shows in September 2017 on their 30th Anniversary of The Joshua Tree tour. This was the first night of Beck's 9-show run.
As the opening act, Beck had to cut his setlist down to 45-50 mins. He, somewhat surprisingly, cut out both "Dreams" and "Wow," leaving Colors (out in 6 weeks) unrepresented.
"Where It's At" is also cut way down, not including lengthy band introductions/solos (sadly - I think U2's audience would really dig hearing Bowie/Prince/Kraftwerk/whatever covers). They did find time to jam a quick Steely Dan reference (mainly, Jason Falkner playing the guitar "Josie" from SD's album Aja - Beck didn't sing anything), as one of the co-founders, Walter Becker, passed away that morning.
