Anger is simple. . . . That's what rock is at the moment. It's an easy thing to do: painting in black. Joy is something else. -- Bono

Here's video of the crazy scene at the end of "Streets" and throughout "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."


Comments: Lots of fans on stage during tonight's show, starting with a female fan who dances suggestively with Bono during "Mysterious Ways." After that, a fan named Ryan comes on stage to play guitar during "Desire" -- which isn't on the printed setlist -- and ends up singing a good portion of the song, too. But craziness erupts during "Streets" when Bono starts bringing multiple fans on stage as the song ends. By the time Bono's done, about 30-40 fans end up on the stage. Many try to take selfies with the band, but Bono tells them to sit on the stage so the band can finish the show. In between songs, he asks himself, "Now why did I do that?" and provides his own answer: "Because it feels really, really good." At one point in the middle of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," Bono stops a fan from taking a photo, saying "Don't photograph the moment. Be in the moment. Sing in the moment!" Bono sings an appropriate snippet of "People Have The Power" and, when the song ends, security helps U2 and the fans leave the stage.

The show features multiple snippets of Leonard Cohen's "Anthem" -- Cohen was born in Montreal. "Volcano" and "The Troubles" both make their third appearance of the tour, giving Songs Of Innocence eight of the show's 24 songs. (Actually nine if you include "Invisible," which appeared on SOI's deluxe versions.) Actress Jennifer Garner is at the show.
