"Trying to film musicians making music is a difficult thing. It's a little like making sausages. You shouldn't ever see how they're made." — Bono

In a city, where Rock and Roll legends are immortalized at the Rock and Roll museum, U2 paid tribute to one of the biggest legends of them all at a sold out show at “The Quicken Loans Arena" in Cleveland. This week was the 25th anniversary of John Lennon’s untimely death and U2 front man Bono paid tribute to the legend by several references to him and U2 even worked into the set, the classic song “Instant Karma” which was well received by the crowd. The 2 hour set featured 7 different songs from their October 25th concert in nearby Detroit, highlighted by the brilliant new single “Original Of The Species”. The beauty of a U2 concert cannot be realized until you have seen them in person. Only then can you appreciate that this is much more than a rock concert. It’s the interaction between the group and its fans and the current world events that shapes each show and makes them special. It's things like Bono bringing a small girl on stage and coaxing her to sing “No More” during the powerful classic “Sunday Bloody Sunday” or the young woman clinging to him during “With Or Without You”. After the classic closer “40”, you could tell it was an evening of “Instant Karma” between the fans and U2. “Well we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun, well we all shine on".

Well done U2!
5 out of 5 stars
