What a way to start off the show. I Will Follow and Pride were cut into half. The crowd went crazy over the older songs, but seem a bit 'laxed during the newer ones such as Last Night and Gone. Until the End segued into If God Will Send and Staring at the Sun was stopped after the first verse and played faster. It sounded great. The Edge did a Karoke tune by Dylan I think and the whole crowd sung along. Miami turned into Bullet and played very funky which was incredible and Bono wants to live in America. (Yeah, right.)

The drum beat of Sunday Bloody Sunday faded out Please. Bits of Playboy Mansion finished off Streets. The band took a break and came out of the giant Lemon and went into Discotheque. I thought it lacked the energy of the studio version, but that will be worked out during the next couple of shows. Velvet was played differently with Edge playing Santana-type licks. By the way it was mesmerizing. I thought Wake Up Dead Man would finish the show, but it was One.

Anyway this was one of those camera flash nights that I wished would never have ended, but the supermarket has to close eventually. I'm excited to see if they mix the set up with different songs for other shows. Enjoy your Capt'n Crunch!
