Well there is not much more you can say than "What A Hell Of A Show!".
It was the first U2 concert I had been to since Wembley Stadium in 1997 for the PopMart tour, but felt this show had greater sound and Bono's vocals were on fine form.
The Edge came up with some mindblowing solos, as usual, Larry just concentrated really hard on playing and Adam was just calm and collected and even had a huge smile during "Streets".
The Globen was a great venue, the audience were really up for it and there was a great vibe.
I live in England and made the trip all the way to Sweden, and it was worth the hassle organising it, making the journey and waiting outside in the heat to make it to the front and inside the heart.
The highlights must have been "I Will Follow", "Where The Streets Have No Name", "Pride" and "The Fly". There was also one moment where Bono fell over a photographer on the heart's runway, as the guy took photos of Bono.
It was disappointing not to hear the band introductions, Bono didn't dance with anyone on stage and the set list missed "New Year's Day" and "Even Better Than The Real Thing". There were also no songs from Rattle and Hum, is this the first time this has happened since the Lovetown tour?
An all round life experience which I would recommend to anyone. Catch this tour and if
you have the chance and the money, go and see the band abroad, you'd be mad to miss out on this one, just like I missed out on ZOO TV and have regretted it since.
