"As life-transforming as I think a U2 gig is, it's not life and death. Doctors, nurses and mothers have more important jobs." — Bono



by Pete

We saw the band in Chicago in the spring and this one was much better, not that the previous one was bad. Species is my fav song on the new album by far and they didn't play it last time I saw them, so it was a treat to hear it here, along with a looser atmosphere. U2 should always mix set lists around like they have on this last leg on the tour. Sarajevo was incredible, as well as Still Havent Found, Streets, and Gloria was a nice addition. I also like the nod to the Clash with a few lines from Rock the Casbah, although the crowd didnt respond like I thought they would. I really enjoyed Until the End of The World, just a great live song. The band had lots of energy and seem to feel that sense of urgency that the US tour is winding down. And the crowd was very loud -- kudos to the St Louis crowd for showing up big time.....I thought for a moment (hoped?) they may have been a 3rd encore when it took a bit in my estimation for the house lights to come up.
