Comments: It's The Edge's 40th birthday and the show is played with a party atmosphere. Bono sprays the audience with champagne during "Party Girl." Before a rare performance of "Spanish Eyes," Bono warns the audience that "this could be f**ked up." It actually sounds great and turns into a longer-than-normal version of the song, since the band struggles to figure out how to bring it to an end. During "Mysterious Ways," several women from U2's management team surprise The Edge by sitting on the video screens at the back of the stage holding birthday cakes, while pictures of The Edge throughout the years are displayed on the screens. Later, Bono brings a fan on stage to dance with during "With or Without You."
