First show of the U2 360 tour, where Muse were the support act.


In 2009, Muse were listed on the Izod Center website as special guests supporting U2 at the Giants Stadium.[source?] The concert, previously scheduled for 25th September at Giants Stadium in New Jersey, was moved to the 23rd. The September 24th performance proceeded as scheduled.

The change was necessitated by the rescheduling of the New York Jets football game on the 27th from 16:15 to 13:00 for the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, which started that evening. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish year.

The gig featured a debut performance of the cover of Leonard Bernstein's America.


After Hysteria Bellamy "How's it going Jersey?"
After Supermassive Black Hole "Thank you very much. Cheers."
After Resistance "Cheers."
After United States of Eurasia Howard "Thank you New Jersey. How you guys doing? [crowd cheer] It's nice to be here playing for you tonight."
After Uprising Bellamy "Thank you."
