I attended both shows and the second one was way better IMHO. Bono's voice was clearer and Edge was sharper. In Paris 1, I particularly enjoyed the moment when Bono made the long effort to speak French, pretty impressive if you ask me. In Paris 2 he stopped speaking earlier but it was fun anyhow.

In both shows, to me, the best sequence is EBW, October, Bullet, Zooropa and WTSHNN. Particularly impressive and moving (I was on the verge of tears) were the images of Syria in ruin while they played October. As a big fan of Zooropa I wish they had played the full song but I gotta say I really like how they revisited it.

Invisible is definitely a great live track, way better than the album version, even if when you're close to the stage (I was against the long platform in Paris 1) you don't really see much of the mise en scène. Which is why I was very lucky to see Paris 2 and enjoy all the giant screens stuff...

As an aside, the Italian girl who went on stage for Mysterious Ways was really beautiful if not as on the ball and "shameless" as Brigitte in Paris 1.

As far as the audience was concerned, both were great even if Paris 2's was even sharper: I really enjoyed the moments before the show started when there was this big wave throughout the room. We sang our hearts out throughout the shows and I lost my voice :P
