This was my 3rd show this far in this tour; I loved Sunday's set in that it was perhaps not as highly energized as Sunday, but more potent with some of the emotional connections. Was also impressed that the set schedule was adjusted so as to spread some of the most important messages earlier, before the show was ending - Also, view from the back of the stadium is great!
So much gratitude to be at, and inspired by these shows! Great show but not good getting home and it's the same on all u2 shows in US. Day need to go to AUS to learn. So I took the scenic route down the coast and saw my 15th U2 show, and probably one of my favourites right up there with the shows I've seen in Dublin. What an amazing night! What an amazing show! Bono, Edge, Larry, and Adam, you guys are absolutely incredible people and even better musicians. I can't wait for the DVD of this tour so I can relive the joy!
Beautiful day is my best, Little things, I would say: a very latin song! I used to put my cranky toddler down for naps to this album! What a thrill to share this experience with her and her sister 23 years later! And yes, she stayed awake the whole time!
