What seems to be standing out is how happy and relaxed they are and just how good the sound is, impeccable. There seems to be so much love and mutual appreciation between the band and their audience. It's great to see and hear. How lucky we are that our favourite band is still out there creating great new music and fantastic, visually stunning shows almost 40 years into their careers. Staggering achievement. Beanie hats off to them I say :D

I am still buzzing from last night.

 

For the last week, I've been tweeting to @u2 asking them to play Gloria and 40.  

 

I had seen them 16 times - 1st was Leeds on Zooropa in 1993 and last one before yesterday was Rome in 2010.  I had never seen them play either song, probably the only two left on my "bucket list".  I knew from all the setlists so far in Europe that the pattern meant we were unlikely to get those songs, but I tried anyway.  

 

This was my only show of this tour, compared to 7 on 360, though I got married and had children in-between!  It would have been awesome for them to pull out those songs for the 2nd Glasgow gig, so I tried.  Very nicely, tweeting pretty much everyday this week, asking gently if they could please include Gloria and 40 on Saturday night in Glasgow.

 

I have no idea whether anyone in the U2 organisation would have seen my tweets.  I'm sure they get 1000s of notifications and don't read everything.

 

I have no idea whether anything like this would ever be passed onto the band.

 

I have no idea whether they would ever act on something like this.

 

But they did play those songs and it WAS a rare setlist, particularly in a city which only got two shows.  

 

I went explosively nuts when Larry started the drum intro to Gloria!  Regardless of whether anyone could have influenced the setlist, let alone me and my tweets, it was an incredible pleasure to see and hear them play those songs for the first time live.  I will always remember that experience.  It was an outstanding gig anyway - the energy in the room was incredible - but this was the icing on the cake.

 

Thanks U2 for making this fan's night.

Came away from Friday's gig think they can't possibly top that,how wrong was I.saturday night the band took it to another level.

And I'm sure the band enjoyed themselfs just as much as the crowd,

U2 outstanding once again,it's true the older they get the better they get.

Let's hope for a stadium tour in the summer.
