“He is a superb showman, but there is something more going on . . . Something to do with politics, kids, freshness and breakthrough. And love." — Joan Baez, on Bono's Live Aid dance

Fourth show this tour, 18th overall. Band was not late, came out around 9 pm as usual and played full set, no additions.

This was an epic show, one to be remembered and discussed in the U2 legend. Not because of the set list, which had few changes, but the absolute driving rain. It started as a drizzle after a few songs, stopped, and then came again in sheets. The rain gave everything a different perspective. And the crowd stayed. Rain and U2 go together, Red Rocks in The Cities. Adam taking off his wet shirt got the biggest roar of the evening. The low clouds swirling through and above the stadium amplified the Claw's lighting effects. Wish the Band could have seen the show.

Small venu for a stadium. Claw seemed to be angled to fit. GA looked overly packed, tightest I have seen, but GA audience was superb and responded well to Bono's request.

Bono's "singing in the rain" complete with Gene Kelly style dancing was a real treat.

Sound wasn't as good as other venues I've been at this tour, possibly the rain, or instrumentation effects due to rain.

I have to applaud the Band for sticking with it and giving The Cities a true best of U2 in both song and spirit. See you next tour.
