Finally I get to a show called Vertigo, the year long wait and 8 year hiatus since my last U2 show in Sydney and Auckland turns on a nice spring night for my 3rd U2 show.

What is there to say, from the City of blinding lights opener to the one tree hill close it was a magical trip through memory lane. Only two or three songs from the latest album but that didnt matter as the oldies like Bad, Bullet the blue sky, with or with out you, pride and angel of Harlem sounded fresh even though they are nearly twenty years old and kept me on my feet. Bonos coexist and make poverty history appeals were a chance to catch a breath and rest the feet.

The stand outs for me would have to be Bonos ability to make the show relevant for each city they play; from the changed song lyrics, outfits (warriors patch on the back of his jacket and the all blacks jersey) to the Maori motifs on the screen for one tree hill. All and all a great night out and well worth the $99 I paid for the south stand ticket I had, which offered me a great view of the crowd, stage and screen with a plenty of room to boogie without disturbing the people behind.

Thanks to the band and people involved in making sure that the show happened just dont take so long next time.
