Comments: Lack of security and issues with the chairs causes crowd issues on the floor of the arena for tonights show. Several fans are hurt and the arena suffers damage as the crowd surges towards the front at the beginning of the show.

Later, Bono brings a fan named Kevin on stage to play guitar during "People Get Ready."
