I slept beside my father with the sound of the audience ringing in my ears during his dying days. -- Bono, on being at his dad's bedside before he died, 2001 (Sun)


by Phil Wright

This concert was absolutely brilliant! It's an old cliche, but true. I think it was the closest I've ever been to the band. Right down on the standing area. The atmosphere before the band came on was just something else! I've never known anything like it before or since. Mexican waves around the arena!! Bono and the boys must have known it was gonna' be something special on this night. And it was. U2 were playing of course! The rest is history. They played a blinding set to a hysterical crowd from start to finish. They talk about Oasis, and Coldplay, and Franz Ferdinand being great live bands. They may be great live bands to their fans - but there's great, and then there's U2. I rest my case.
