"The songs can hurt, and the songs can uplift. But they don't have to be reverent." — Bono



by Erik Heinz

That was simply a very powerful show for me. Most people don't have any understanding of what a deeply personal meaning this group, their music and their live performances hold for me. I was spellbound for the entire two hours. The show as 99% complete for me. The only thing I really felt I missed out on was Bono's piano playing while singing The Sweetest Thing. That's a small price to pay however as the rest of the setlist was excellent. I love hearing Bad live. The highlight of the setlist for me was Sunday Bloody Sunday with 40 at the end. That's just such a powerful song for the audience to sing. I also love it when Bono mentions local things that anyone who wasn't here at the time or didn't grow up in AZ won't get. He referred to our previously impeached governor who was ousted some 10 or so years ago, Evan Mecham (pronounced Meekum, Bono called him Meechum). Oh, and I was also hoping to hear I Remember You and my wish was granted!
Bono tired of getting hurt? He didn't exactly stage "dive" this time after The Fly.
