"[I]t says somewhere in the scriptures that the Spirit moves like a wind. ... The Spirit is described in the Holy Scriptures as much more anarchic than any established religion credits." — Bono



by Martin Mois

U2's show is by far the greatest that this country has ever seen, definitely better than the Stones' Voodoo Lounge Tour. The set they played was impressive, even though songs like "Desire" and "Stay" were missed, and the band connected with the audience in a way that's very difficult to explain, but every song was pure emotion, pure feeling. The stadium was packed (5.000 tickets were sold in the last 2 days), and the show was flawless. I was right in front of the stage, and it was very difficult to focus your attention on one part of the stage, because Bono was singing most of the time on a platform that extended like 10 mts. from the stage, while the rest of the band played and a constant flow of images poured from the huge screen.

To top it off, that same day, the chilean soccer team beat the english soccer team in Wembley Stadium in England by 2-0, and the images of those 2 goals were shown on the screen just before the band walked down from the lemon with the chilean soccer team's shirt to sing "Discotheque". The show ended with Bono and the relatives of the bodies of the detenidos-desaparecidos asking Pinochet where their bodies are, just before singing "One" and "Mothers of the Dissapeared", a perfect and emotional ending, although unfortunately a lot of people didn't agree with it. All I can say is that it was definitely worth the wait.
