"Playing a football stadium doesn't have to be like standing in back of a muddy field in the '70s. We still have the same ideals. We've just learned to look like we don't." — Bono

by Jonathan Lace

I've seen U2 twice before on Elevation and the first 360 show at Giant's Stadium and met Bono in NY. This show was the best I've seen. The entire 360 tour seemed very fine tuned compared to the first 360 show I saw in 2009. The intro was well-executed with the band opening up with EBTTRT right at the end of Space Odyssey. The energy in the crowd was incredible. The spaceship theme was awesome, culminating in astronaut Mark Kelly on the ISS dedicating "Beautiful Day" to his wife, Rep. Giffords. Being an Achtung fan, I loved hearing EBTTRT, The Fly, UTTEOTW, Mysterious Ways, and One. Although, I missed Ultraviolet. During the 2nd encore, Bono asked for the "For Clarence" sign a fan had in the GA section and put it in front of Larry's drums. The emphasis on Human Rights was evident during Walk On. Great show. All in all, it was a real treat.
