"There's a haircut I had in the mid '80s which launched a thousand second-division soccer players." — Bono

by Zach

So, I read the review of the saturday show in the Chicago Tribune and it basically says, "U2 are flat, dried up, tied up, and dead to the world." All I have to say is yah right! This show was absolutely ELECTRCIC! Starting out with "City of Blinding Lights" was amazing. I was hoping that they wouldn't play "Love and Peace or Else" as the opener as I believe that COBL serves as a better opener. Some high points of the show have to be a very inspired version of "Sunday, Bloody Sunday", Bono talking about how he loves Chicago, and Adam running around the stage. I think the high point of the show is the songs from AB - especially "Zoo Station". I thnk the elevation tour version of "the fly" was better...sorry! Streets was great as always, but was missing something. Overall, I give this show an 8.5 out of 10. No matter how many times I hear these songs live, it still resonates profoundly. Oh, and congrats to the girl that got picked to come up on stage and play guitar. of all songs, i must say "party girl" took me by surprise. You are one lucky lady
