Before launching into ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’, U2, who were headlining the Auckland concert displayed the names of all the miners on the large screens at the Mt Smart Stadium while Bono said: "People have ways of dealing with grief. In Ireland we sing."
Jay-Z, who was opening the show, also made mention of the tragedy, dedicating ‘Forever Yong’ to the lost men and saying: "They will always be in our hearts and they will always be forever young".
