Hamburg Live Thread #U2eiTour

During the speech before ONE last night Bono gave  beautiful insight to what was going on with the band in Berlin as they kept fighting and couldn't agree etc etc - Then this song Happened - ONE- it's about them the four of them. I have been a fan for 30 years, how did I not know this. I thought it was  maybe about Edge and Aislinn  or a relationship gone bad or us as human beings, but never about them. When i heard them play the song after Bono revealed this  i heard the ONE for the first time.  It was a breathtaking version too. It has a whole new meaning for me now. Love it even more.

May have said it before, but the way Bono delivers "'Cause I need it nowwwww" elevates the intensity of this performance. I can NEVER get enough of it.

Yes, it was a great version yesterday!

If you want to know even more about the making of it, be sure to see the "From The Sky Down" documentary - it pulls back the curtain on the whole making of AB.

Apparently Ali roadied Eli's band at their gig the other night. Bono described the way Ali roadied them in the early days as "putting Humpty Dumpty together after the shows" ?
