OMG I was at both gigs in Belfast, been at every tour since kings hall for Joshua tree and boy did they rock Belfast!! Night 1 was amazing however night 2 for me topped all only 2nd to first night in Slane. Too many highlights to mention however Out of Control, Pride, Invisible, Streets and then my perfect end Bad followed by 40 will live forever in my memory! When I heard those first chords of Bad I literally burst into tears and that was me right thro until they finally disappeared down the steps at the B stage

 

Fans in my hometown were AMAZING!!!

Great reviews guys, glad we all echo the same sentiment. I think the (and it's a strange word to use) intimacy of the SSE added to the experience. I was really taken by the bands clear thrill, smiles and expressions at the end of With or Without You on Wednesday night as in this clip - I'm certain Thursday night was equally brilliant if not better. But I mean what I say in that I don't care if I never hear 'Bad' live - this weeks experience has been truly tops, and it will be hard to surpass I'm thinking - ever! - in my book. :)

And there is something about this tour, like you say maybe it's the intimacy but something feels different, like a mutual appreciation not just between to band but with the audience and they do seem so happy and enjoying it so much:)

Yeah, think you're right. This is honestly the best version of 'Elevation' I've heard since Slane. It's a song I'd lost really, then this happened. :)

Yeahhhhhh! That made me smile from ear to ear! The Bono and Larry bit with their hair was such a giggle! Love 'em. Some 35 years on from that energic mass of hair bouncing around like loose electricity, Bono is still in love with the camera and his audience. Just brilliant.

 

Thanks for the vid, will be watching that again:)))

Thanks Bigwave, I can't understand what is wrong with me but it's not so much I'm lost for words Its more I keep filling up and bursting in to tears every time I think back to the two nights! I think I just had so much raw emotion at finally seeing 'my family U2' back on stage in my home town and the fact that they were even more amazing, fun, intimate and bloody RAW than I had dreamed of and maybe also the fact I was standing right in front of them at the B stage that I've now become an emotional wreck! I'm going to last night in Dublin so I think by Sunday I may be needing shares in Kleenex!!! Lol god I just love each and every one of them for what they can do to my soul with their songs. I also discovered even at 46 I can still rock with the best of them when I hear those chords of I Will Follow you just be transported back to your youth!!

 

Roll on Dublin - you are seriously in for a hell,of a party !!! I think Bono will be in tears as he nearly went a couple of times in Belfast!!!
