"Edge made me listen to [our old material] for The Best Of, and I was bracing myself, cause I think I sound like a very opinionated girl. Just screaming my head off. But then I actually listened to it and I thought, 'My God, there's pure joy here.'" — Bono

Once again, U2 delivers a fantastic performance, even if it was pretty much the same exact show as the previous four in Boston.

"Crumbs" was an extremely welcomed addition. "Original" and "Bad" were supposed to close the show (according to official set list being passed out), but after "ABOY," it was already 11:15, so they dumped them and played "40" instead.

Actor Ed Burns and model Christie Turlington were hanging in the area in front of the soundboard. Paul McGuiness was also in there handing out wristbands to get into the ellipse. Both of Bono and Ali's daughters were in there as well.

All in all a good show, but not a great one. For someone who's never been to a U2 show before, or never seen this tour, it was phenomenal show. For tour vets, it was a cookie-cutter type of show. The beginning of the show kicks you in the ass with the energy, but then I feel hits a wall with "Miracle Drug" on down. Don't get me wrong, the songs are fantastic, it just seems as if the energy level goes down.

Hearing Bono sing Pavarotti's part in "Mis Sarejevo" is unreal.

Still looking forward to December in Boston; I just hope they change it up some more.
