A rough night at the office for Bono, but that didn't stop a capacity crowd from enjoying the greatest rock and roll band of my generation and this one. "Ever have one of those days where you just feel...shitty", Bono scratched out during the intro to KITE. "I need you guys to help me get through it", he added. Amazing that the man can control an audience with such grace and ease, even while suffering from a nasty cold that would cause most of us to call in dead.
The band was tight as always, and although Larry looked bored at times, by the time STREETS came around, the energy was noticably up. The catwalk was rarely used in comaparison to the last 6 shows on the tour that I have witnessed, this obviously because of Bono's health status. One addition to the set is a full band rendition of DESIRE at the point of the Heart. Even Larry is handed a drum from below. This is a treat, as they have been doing it acoustically for quite some time now. It sounded great, and I notice on U2tours.com's set list they did not mention that Bono went into GLORIA at the end of DESIRE.
Thanks Albany and thanks Jewelofharlem.
See you all in Philly!
