London 4 - I spent at the e stage. Absolutely loved it. Wonderful atmosphere and the band really seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Thought I would write a little review - had to get it off my chest! so finally got to see I&E live. U2 at the o2 - shows 3 & 4. Show 3, 29th October - my partner's 40th birthday, so added expectation for a great night. These tickets were bought with my priority code - initially disappointed as I had wanted red zone, but there was an issue with the web site and they had all gone, so ended up with a seat. However, when we arrived, we headed down, down, down to our row - we were only on the front row! perfect view of Adam's side! brilliant. As the venue filled we saw a stream of famous people pass underneath us - Chris Moyles, Patti Smith (were we in for a treat...?), Noel Fitzpatrick (the super vet!). 

 

People have the power came on, and then Bono walks on to the e stage - here we go! Before we know it we are 5 songs in, and then Iris, just amazing. And then UTEOTW - interval already. the Fly starts, and Gavin Friday is below us singing along - surreal!  Invisible inside the screen - very clever. More songs on the e stage - mysterious ways sounded great. EBW just beautiful. Then on to the haunting sound of October, anger of BTBS, Zooropa – such a powerful song, didn’t realize what a powerful song it really is. Strange not to have the chorus though! WTSHNN into Pride and WOWY – awesome!

 

Encore – COBL, great, Beautiful day (my least favourite U2 song – sorry!) and then to my favourite – Bad, and then on walks Patti Smith, what a treat! In summary, still amazing live, no one else comes close, on a high all the way home – and still have tomorrow night to look forward to!

 

Show 4 – this time we are on Edge’s side – a few rows higher up. Still a cracking view. Here we go – birthday boy is on fire! Larry’s drumming is just amazing to watch. Electric Co tonight. Sound seems better too.

 

Highlights – again UTEOW, then AIWIY – just great! Think Bono was thrown by it too, as he had to start EBW again, but still delivered an amazing performance. Before we know it, it’s the encore – One this evening. I just wish Bono would sing it – for me it takes the power away as a sing along… However a minor complaint! Another great night – lets hope there is another leg announced soon, I hope I don’t have to wait another 5 years to see U2 again!

Sounds like you had pretty much the same seats we did for nights 1 and 2. We had exactly the same reaction first night heading down to Row C :-)

I'm going on Monday, can someone give me a rough idea of what time the band have been coming on stage ? The o2 website says 7:30 but I find that hard to believe.

They hit the stage around 8:30pm

I was at both London 3 and 4 nights, totally different views and impressions, wrote a bit in the live thread but my two cents...

 

London 3 I was in GA, nearly front row, middle of the catwalk towards the b-stage.  I knew they would be walking the stage quite frequently so decidd for that spot as the front was packed by the time we came in (around 6.45/7-ish pm).  I was so excited to hear Gloria to start with.  My highlights/fave moments were EBW - totally loved it just with the piano - Invisible it is one of my fave songs pity I couldn't appreciate the screen then. SBS was probably one of the best versions I have heard, totally loved Larry's drums then. And of course WOWY, I always always love that song and Bono sang the first verses just in front of me, so it was quite mesmerising. All in all I left super excited as I knew I was coming back the next day...

 

London 4 I had seats, nearly behind the stage, Adam's side.  I could see them hit the stage and even though the seats were not ideal I had a great view of the screen this time. Bono did his bit to interact with the crowd behind the stage which was totally appreciated.  I never expected AIWIY so that was a very nice surprise. COBL is quite refreshing at the start of the 3rd set. I wish they could do / fit in Magnificent somewhere though...The only downside: I was supposed to take my lil one but he was so ill I couldn't take him, I was gutted to leave him behind. I am debating whether to get last min tickets for Monday #5.

 

I would share some pics but have no ieda how to do it over here...will do some expirementing.

 

Anyway...I am glad I have another night, London 6, Tuesday, otherwise I would be super depressed that is all over.
