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

I must say that the eight hour drive from Memphis was well worth the trip. The last time I saw U2 was in Memphis on their PopMart Tour. I was a bit disappointed in that performance and had almost given up on U2.
I didn't expect to experience a new U2 this time around. Being very close to the stage
at Rupp Arena in Lexington, it was like a spiritual experience. U2 were brilliant!
I felt so alive with energy as the band played a fantastic set list, minus any Pop
songs, which I was please with. The small crowd of roughly 13,000 was totally energetic from beginning to end. And that made the experience even more wonderful. The band played very tightly, making almost no mistakes. Edge's guitar playing was quite possibly his best ever, especially during
Bullet The Blue Sky. His guitar riffs seemed
to feed off the crowd's energy and Bono's powerful mood. I felt the Irish in me during Sunday Bloody Sunday, as Bono grabbed an Irish flag from a fan near the large heart platform. He slowly carried the flag in both arms as if he were carrying a human, gently placing it on an amplifier, displaying the proud colors of Ireland. It was amazing. I've been to many concerts in my life and this was, by far, the finest and most genuine rock performance I've ever been a part of. In my opinion, U2 is the best band in the world.
