U2 opened its wildly anticipated Vertigo tour last night (March 28) at the San Diego Sports Arena, performing seven songs from its latest Interscope album, "How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb," plus a number of tracks that have not been featured in its live set in years. The 115-minute show opened with new song "City of Blinding Lights" and closed with "40," from the band's 1983 album "War."

Beyond the singles "Vertigo" and "Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own," the band played "Atomic Bomb" tracks "Love and Peace or Else," "All Because of You" and the meditative "Yahweh," which featured drummer Larry Mullen Jr. on keyboards.

But the real treat was the appearance of such back catalog favorites as "The Cry / The Electric Co.," "An Cat Dubh" and "Into the Heart," which were played third through fifth in the set. The group also emptied its sizable bag of classics, including "One," "Where the Streets Have No Name," "Pride (In the Name of Love)" and "New Year's Day."

The tour resumes tomorrow at the same venue.
