Remarks:

Bono sings a bit of ‘Pump It Up’ for Elvis Costello, who is in the building tonight. ‘I Still Haven’t Found…’ is performed with a local band, The Bank Robbers, on stage. Members of that band borrow U2’s instruments to perform the song, though the drummer uses Larry’s tom from ‘Love And Peace Or Else.’

The boys from Dublin have never disapointed me yet! 20 years later, they still get down and do it as it should be d! Great Show!

First off I gotta thank my bro for the concert ticket and my wife for the airline ticket...the trip from T.O. to N.J. to see U2 was better than I could have hoped for. Nothing quite like being within 5 folks from the front of the "circle"...those pix could have come from any one of the dozens of camera phones whipped out in front of my face any time the band waltzed by. hearing "The Ocean" and "Gloria" made the whole night but the random "Mysterious Ways" dancer (who was fantastic) and "The Bank Robbers" were a surprise that really put this show over the top. I have seen U2 7 times now from Joshua thru to Atomic Bomb...this show was pure fun!!! Thanks Tyler!
