Great show, they sounded fantastic and seemed so happy, great to see them smiling and relaxed, they made it look so easy performing to a huge audience! The illustrated screens were stunning, the colours were mesmerising, as was Larry's drumming, I could watch him all day, the concentration, he is rock solid throughout.

I couldn't have asked for more on the set list (well I could have but they would have been there til the early hours ha ha) - I have kept out of the threads so I didn't know what to expect but Out of Control wow I certainly was, bouncing around like a mad thing plus I Will Follow, plus Bullet the Blue Sky ( a beautiful noise) plus City of Blinding Lights, songs from Achtung wow wow wow. One was wonderful towards the end when Bono handed it to the crowd, I sang every word as loud as my lungs would allow me! And Volcano too, great hear that live other than in my own bedroom, usually wrapped in a bath towel with a hairbrush for a mic!  ;))

but...and there is a but...sorry guys but the set up didn't work that well for many of us at ground level, could you elevate the walkway and smaller stage please next time?? Some of us are very little!! When you left the main stage, we lost sight of you for what seemed like an eternity. We were entertaining ourselves for most of that time lol. Was gutted not to see EBW 'in the flesh', it was the one I was looking forward to the most. Ironically they were Invisible!! There is a Them that could see and only us who couldn't - see what I did there!

I was so happy to have made it there and to be so close to the main stage. I watched Larry - a lot!! He is so sexico the man is a god lol...

They looked so happy waving to the crowd at the end, it felt like a real privilege to see them, they are truly magnificent and unique. I just love them to bits. The best birthday present ever!

Thank you U2, it's been a tough few years for me, truly heartbreaking, I held out for you and it has been the highlight amid great sadness in my life. I know this sounds mushy and maybe it's part of the post show euphoria but your songs have enriched my life since I was a young teen, they are a part of me. A light that never goes out xxxx (one for each of you)
xx (extra's for Larry :x)

So happy I went to 2 gigs instead of one. Again, last night was utterly astonishing. I was worried that it might not be that different from night 1, but when they started playing Gloria I knew that I hadn't wasted my money. Getting Desire and Party Girl was great too, and Bad/40, oh my goodness...one of the most powerful things I've ever witnessed at a gig. The differences didn't just come in terms of the setlist, they came in terms of the little things - Bono singing a snippet of Hold Me Close by David Essex, talking about just crazy it was for 4 men to arrive at a giant building with trucks full of gear, and then bare their souls in front of 20,000 people for 6 nights...things like that. Also quite proud, as a student studying in Brighton, that the girl Bono pulled onstage for the Meerkat broadcast came from Worthing, which is really close by - representing the Sussex U2 fanbase! 

 

Also, towards the end of UTTEOTW in amongst all the torn-out book pages falling from the rafters, I managed to catch this page from Alice in Wonderland. Looking at what's on the page, I thought it fitted strangely well with the thematic elements of the show. It makes me wonder: did they rip the pages out at random or did they deliberately pick particular pages with words that fitted into the tour's context? Either way, it's nice to have this little souvenir to keep with me. What a night.
