"It's got a really spongy sound. We've found that when you're men, the slower tempos can be funky." — Bono, on "Elevation"




by The Fly Guy

I have already provided a full review of this show, but want to focus specifically on the show closer, 13 (There is a Light).  “13” is a nontraditional way to close the show for sure, but works especially with connecting with the previous 2015 i&e tour.  I love how Bono returns 'home' on Cedarwood Road and pulls the light from the previous tour out of it. Overall, the show moves so quick, that it only seems fitting to slow it down, to reflect, and listen to some heartfelt words from our band's lead singer as we part ways:

"I know the world is dumb....but you don’t have to be....I’ve got a question for the child in you before it leaves...Are you tough enough to be kind?....Do you know your heart has it’s own mind?

Such thoughtful and accurate lyrics.  Words of wisdom to dwell on as you journey from the concert venue and return to the realities of life.  Be kind and we can make the world a better place for sure.  That is what I think U2 is trying to do with 13 as a close on Songs of Experience as well as the tour.  “13” is a great way to close this show.
