This tour cannot end, I've decided.  Change the setlist and imagery but return and return and return.

Nah... I want to see what they conjure up to amaze us next time around.

Just got home from seeing both London shows. Well, that was quite the emotional rollercoaster.

First night did not go well for me - I had a really horrible GA experience that made it hard to enjoy any part of the show, even hearing my favourite songs. The e-stage segment was fun (I've never seen Edge so smiley before!) and I finally got to witness a live MacPhisto speech, though it was mostly the same one as Manchester 2 and I was a bit thrown by the total lack of crowd response. Acrobat was undoubtedly the highlight, though - I've been avoiding streams and videos so this was the first time I'd seen it, and I was delighted by how much MacPhisto was visible in the performance. At one point I was staring into his eyes with some kind of enraptured expression on my face, and I don't know if I was completely hallucinating but he appeared to be staring straight back into mine for what felt like a solid 15 or 20 seconds. He was also facing in my direction when he did his violin-playing mime and it felt as if he was performing directly to me, at which point I found myself spontaneously overcome with emotion. I did not expect Acrobat to make me cry!
It was all worth it for those magical moments, but the rest of the time I had little to no view and was in such discomfort that I just wanted the show to hurry up and end so I could get out of there. Probably the worst time I've ever had seeing them live. :( It culminated in me having a total meltdown during the encore - Bono set me off with his speech about how sad it is that we're leaving the EU, and I just carried on crying until the end of the show, without really knowing why. (I knew those last two songs were going to be depressing but I didn't think I'd react quite that badly.)

Thankfully, I learnt many years ago to always attend two shows in case anything goes awry at the first one, so I did a few things differently on the second night and it made a world of difference. Had a really good rail spot and nothing to spoil my enjoyment (not even the insane crush when everyone moved towards the e-stage), resulting in a U2 gig that felt like it was supposed to. MacPhisto's speech was amazing (can't wait to listen again) and I was right near the magic mirror, so that was another once-in-a-lifetime experience. :) Shame we never got Red Flag Day but I was thrilled to hear All Because Of You again - HTDAAB is my second favourite album and it brought back very happy memories of my first GA experience on the Vertigo Tour! The whole Achtung Baby / Zooropa sequence was a real joy to hear too. And I'm so happy they brought back New Year's Day for the European leg, it's always been my favourite song to hear live.

No regrets - it all worked out in the end!
