Opening Act(s): Kings of Leon

Setlist:

City Of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Elevation, The Cry, The Electric Co., An Cat Dubh-Into The Heart, Beautiful Day, New Year's Day, Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, Love And Peace Or Else, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, Pride (In The Name Of Love), Where The Streets Have No Name, One. Encore(s): Zoo Station, The Fly, Mysterious Ways, All Because Of You, Yahweh, 40.

Remarks:

The crowd on the floor tonight is very aggressive, and over two dozen fans are removed or helped out due to pushing outside the ellipse. Bono brings a girl on stage during 'Yahweh,' but she gets too friendly with him and her time on stage is short. Bono tells the crowd tonight's show is being filmed (likely as a dry run for real filming coming soon in Chicago).

Lay down...on your knees...This concert was the best I have ever seen (3rd U2 tour). They finished shooting 'city of blinding lights' on this night. Being 8 rows up from side stage, I could make eye contact. The crowd was feverish, the sound immense and Bono's voice outstanding. We sang even when the house lights came up. How long? Sing a new song! If you don't catch this tour, you will be sorry. U2 mixes music and heart in a bowl of fandomonium.

We loved them in Vancouver. See you from the video!

The concert was the best ever! I have never been to a concert before but I know that nothing will ever top this. Bono was amazing...I was so close to U2 on the floor that we could see their sweat. I was amazed how the crowd reacted to each and every one from U2...it is great to see that everyone is equal and it's not a one person band. This concert is a must see...you will be sorry if you miss it.

OH my god ,there the best band in the world.I listen to it all the time!It makes my feel good when im down.thanks
PS adam inspired me to play bass thanks again

It was great to hear the tunes before the U2 concert and it sure built up the anticipation for an event of the decade. I was impressed with the mission the group has embarked upon to make a better world and drawing attention to the plight of others affected by war.
While standing near the exit of the GM Place I was able to see Bono up close when the limousine came out of the garage area.I put a thumbs up and when the vehicle came by the rear window opened on the passenger side and there he was with his trademark sun glasses and in a white house-coat wearing a smile. A fellow beside me took a picture on his digital camera and showed us later. What a great shot that captured a look that was classic.
