"I like writing songs. I like writing words, but I don't enjoy making records." — Bono

by Franno

Having attended the 3 Croke Park gigs, I think the Friday night show edged out Saturday as the best show so I'll post my review here.

Although we had tickets for the red zone we somehow found ourselves inside the pit at the rail on Adam's side. The band raced through the first few tracks all from NLOTH which all sounded so good live. Beautiful Day & Vertigo both have a new lease of life on this tour. I don't get all the complaints surrounding the set list, I think it all comes together very well. As much as I would love to hear Drowning Man, I'm not sure if it would work so well on the night. It was a real treat to hear Bad again and despite what a lot of people here are saying I think the encore including With or Without You closes the show beautifully.

The band are really only getting in to their stride now. By the time the show hits the US they will be on top form. Much better than the Vertigo tour in my opinion.
