U2 and Muse Set Lists from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington Monday
Independence Day in Arlington? Nah, just U2's ginormous 360 "Claw" stage.

It's a little less than 36 hours and counting until U2's 360 Tour stops at Reliant Stadium, and Rocks Off is starting to get excited. Really excited. Bono and the boys were in Arlington at Cowboys Stadium Monday night. "For about two hours, the U2 members sang and played with passionate precision," writes Mario Tarradell in the Dallas Morning News. "They backed up the spectacle with plenty of dramatic substance." Meanwhile, here's a sampling of live-tweets from our sister paper the Dallas Observer:
"Lights just went down for U2. So many cameras and phones are out, it's obnoxious. #partoftheproblem" "You haven't experienced frustration if you haven't listened to tens of thousands trying to sing with Bono as he changes up words, melodies." "OK, now the stage looks like that thing that let's you go back in time in Galaxy Quest. Or any other movie, really. http://pic.gd/d2670d "Bono just dedicated 'One' to President Bush, and wasn't even being facetious. Also, cats are living with dogs in perfect harmony." "Cowboys Stadium is literally shaking right now. Crazy."
After the jump, see Monday's set lists from U2 and potentially show-stealing opener Muse. We really, really hope they keep "The Unforgettable Fire."
