Opening Act(s): Lone Justice

Setlist:

11 O'Clock Tick Tock, I Will Follow, Seconds, MLK, The Unforgettable Fire, Wire, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Cry, The Electric Co., A Sort Of Homecoming, Bad, October, New Year's Day, Pride (In The Name Of Love). Encore(s): Knockin' On Heaven's Door, Gloria, 40.

Remarks:

A fan joins the band to play 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door.' While he plays, Bono, Edge, and Adam all leave the stage and the fan plays alone with just Larry backing him on the drums. The fan carries the song, and the crowd erupts when the full band returns to the stage.

Fan Review:

By Tom Fox

This show stands out as the greatest show I have seen in my 42 years. The band was popular, but not over the top popular. They were tight after a lot of touring. "Orchestrated yet unbridled passion" seems to describe it for me.

I remember them pulling an audience member to the stage to play guitar, and then one by one the band left the stage, finally leaving this one guy up there all alone in the spotlight. That truly blew my mind.
Did they do this at every show? Some of the shows? I would love a reply if you know.

I have seen some great shows, but this one stands out at the top of the list. I dont know any band that can make an arena seem like a club better than they do.

Oh, and the neverending chorus of "40" by the audience is a great memory as well.
