U2's 'Joshua Tree' Was Born In Ronald Reagan's America. Does It Speak To Donald Trump's?

Post-Joshua Tree encore highlights included a "Mysterious Ways" that honored female achievers on the video screen from Sister Rosetta Tharpe to Patti Smith to Malala Yousafzai. "Womankind, explain my mind," Bono implored.

In his intro to the band's most irresistible musical call for unity, "One," Bono praised former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama's work to fight HIV/AIDS and expressed dismay that Trump's proposed budget cuts could undo it.  And, for a finale, the band left out "The Little Things That Give You Away," the one brand-new song that they have frequently been closing shows with, and instead opted for one last jolt of galvanic energy with their most recent big hit, 2004's "Vertigo."
