Irish megastars U2 resumed their colossal 360° Tour in Auckland, New Zealand, last night, and surprised fans by digging very, very deep into their catalog, performing “Scarlet,” off 1981’s October, for the first time in 29 years — and only the second time ever, according to U2gigs.com.

Bono and Co. dedicated the track to recently freed Burmese political opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, while opening act Jay-Z rapped over the near-wordless song (its recorded lyrics are simply Bono crooning “Rejoice!” over and over).
