"[N]othing says that only Bono can go out there and perform." -- Adam, on his Vertigo tour ellipse solo walks

by Declan

Well what to say. Second time seeing the boys after manchester 1 on the Vertigo. Astonishing. Although I enjoyed that show immenseley this blew it out of the water in my opinion. Mainly the audience were much more into it as you would expect in Dublin's fair city. Also I think no line on the horizon is a superior album. Had avoided this website like a plague in the run up to the show, wanted no spoilers whatsoever. If they had started in America I reckon that would have been impossible for me.

The stage really has to be seen. Could see the top of the claw above the croke park stands on the train into Dublin, amazing. Thought the four song blast at the start worked well. Breathe has to be the best rocker they have ever done. Highlights for me were ultraviolet. Just out of the blue but is astonishing live. I had never heard it live on video before, it's not on zoo tv live from Sidney which made it all the more unexpected and appreciated. Although I never though Sunday Bloody Sunday has been as good as it's heydays of Live Aid and Rattle and Hum but it got the biggest reaction of the night and I had shivers seeing this explosion of people singing in the site of the original Bloody Sunday. Really stopped me in my tracks and was amazing. Bad was the song I wanted to hear live most and it didn't disapoint, what a sing along.

The videoing of the boys was amazing. HD and as good as a concert film the actual footage was. Anyone going to this tour just savour every moment of the show. Tears in my eyes at the end. Ruddy marvellous.
