The tender echoes of a past overlapping with a now, presenting the possibilities of a different tomorrow. Don’t really know what that means yet. Think it might be poetic, but I am having it as the opening lines of this ramble-cum- first hand narritive from Manchester 1. Tonight,
Bono recalls on stage the first ever time the U2 came to play Manchester, !980. May 1980 he pinpointed. I wasn’t there that time, but I was in this city back in 1992 when the band played the G-Mex Centre, captured on video as Stop Sellafield - The Concert. The G-Mex ‘room’ was quite similar to this one here at the M
O la la Madrid You are hot!
The weather is hot!
The people are hot!
The band and the audience are extremely hot!
I dont speak Spanish but boy can I feel the Spanish rhythm tonight...
From the moment we started jumping we never stopped! People dancing, people singing so passionately, Everybody is taking us higher tonight!
Bono asking the audience for the Spanish word for a mullet, which we still dont know hahah
The visuals on the screen are amazing!!! That Hold me Thrill me Kiss me animation wow Wow Wow I am in love!
It's with a very heavy heart that I write this review. The U2 gig in Manchester on Friday 19th October was a great day for celebration as it was my Nan's 104th birthday (she's still going strong) so we started the day with her in Warwick before jumping on the train to Manchester for the gig with my dad. Unknown at the time was it would be the last time I spent time with my dad as he passed away a few days after the gig.
We both had an amazing time, the setlist was great, the visuals were amazing and we sang our lungs out to the old classics.
Happy happy memories. I just hope that
There's a certain rush that comes to me when I see U2. I got it the first time I saw them, on the Innocence & Experience tour at this exact London venue three years ago. Back then I thought it was just the mad excitement of finally getting to see my favourite band live for the first time, but I still get it now every time I see them. Tonight is no exception.
Opening a rock show with footage of war-torn cities post WWII and Chaplin's famous Great Dictator speech is a bold move, one that demonstrates a band in their latter years still looking to surprise and shock their audience. Ultim
I’ve said this before (but this time I mean it!!) U2 yet again draw me back in if I ever had any moments of doubt! Wild horses in particular was a standout for me and at one point as they were all together at the end I thought wow the energy was amazing!! During stay I got a bit emotional and two complete strangers one beside me and a lady behind me asked if I was ok so sweet.. damn u2 they know how to set me off! Not sure London can top Manchester but let’s find out ?
Maybe the time is right, maybe tonight
Since 1981 I haven’t missed a single U2 Tour in The Netherlands and with all European gigs the Experience & Innocence concerts in Amsterdam were number 39 and 40 on my list. The first night was great, I managed to avoid a lot of spoilers and was quite surprised with the new screen, the visuals and the sound off course. That day brought my both long-life loves together as the famous Ajax football club played a home game in the Johan Cruijff ArenA after which it was just a few steps to the Ziggo Dome to see my favorite band.
On Monday I felt a
There's all kind of magic in this world, but U2 is the one I love best. Especially in nights like this one.
Bono thanked the portuguese fans for their patience. Well, to be honest, every u2 fan as learnt patience is a virtue with this band. The more you wait, the better it gets. And it wasn't an exception to the rule. It sure had been a while since our four favorite Irish men stepped foot in Portugal, but tonight… tonight made up for a decade of absence.
What a show. What. A. Show. I'd gladly say I have no words but since I'm writing thid it’d probably be lying. And ye
Brilliant show tonight and even though not in the stadium you could feel Bono’s emotions coming through the wires loud and clear during “One Tree Hill.” “Love is Bigger Than Anything in its Way” was another highlight. Goosebumps hearing a chorus of voices from New Zealand singing it so strong. Looking forward to what they have up their sleeves for tomorrow night.
