U2 Tours (formerly part of AtU2): A Comprehensive Guide To U2’s Live Performance History

by Wayne Riehl

My wife and I arrived early and found ourselves in the inner circle standing 20ft from The Edge and his pedals. Space Oddity begins the show and from the moment Larry starts to pound the beat of Breathe, the night lifts off. The excitement builds from song to song. By the time U2 launched into Moment of Surrender they carried the audience including me and my wife Anne through 23 masterpieces of very emotional - sometimes painful , mostly elating - music.

Bono was at his finest -- so to was the Edge. The Edge struggled with some technical difficulties very briefly. This added to the spontaniety of a live perfomance. Larry and Adam meandered about the stage coming to our zone only a couple of times. That's okay --they are the battery for the music.

Highlights for the show are Breathe, Unknown Caller, Unforgettable Fire, I'll Go Crazy and Ultraviolet. I have a greater appreciation of the new material thanks to the live perfomance.

I appreciated u2 reaching deep into the catalogue for Unforgettable Fire MLK and Ultraviolet. I do feel I missed out a little without Your Blue Room (as was played the night before).

I have seen the band 11 times now and this would be my third favorite show. There is never a bad U2 Concert -- this was a great show.
