"I'm Irish. I'm a rock star here. I'm not white either. The Irish are kind of — pinkish. Underdone." — Bono

GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH - BAR NONE! Got in the queue at 2pm and at 5pm the gates opened. Got right to the front Adam's side about 6 rows back. Talk about excited. Having seen the 2nd show in Dublin from near the mixing desk we decided to get up close for this one. The gig was fantastic and because it was being broadcast on radio you could see that Edge and Adam were concentrating on putting a good performance on, and didn't they just. Setlist for me was perfect, Ultraviolet, Elevation, Unforgettable Fire... it don't get much better! NOTE: For those yet to see the show and are wondering where to stand I would *highly* recommend going to 2 shows and watch one from afar (near the mixing desk) and one right in the 'bomb shelter'. It's really is so much a different experience. Being at the front you can see every expression on the bands face and Stuck in a Moment acoustic was like having a private gig with Bono and Edge! Also the crowd were very vocal and upbeat at the front (like me). However certain songs such as Blinding Light and Vertigo definately worked better from afar and the claw looks amazing. If I had to choose only one the gig at the front was slightly better but try and see it from both angles! jules.
