Firstly, Thank you Glasgow for not raining until after the show!

The set was amazing and the buzz of the crowd intense and infectious. Having not seen the boys perform since the Zoo TV tour in Adelaide I was pure amazed, they've definitely still got it and Zoo Station/The fly surely brought back a few memories.

And who cares if they played Vertigo twice, the explosive finish was worth every second.


I was at the glasgow concert last night, and its the best u2 show i have been 2

Great Gig, Fantastic Weather. Good Crowd. Somewhat dissapointed with the awfull quality of sound!! 5th time I've seen U2. Do gigs ALOT. Tried various parts of the stadium, left happy to have seen them (again) - but secretely had this niggling feeling that the sound was a let down. Anyone agree??

Personal Highlight - Sunday BS. Sometimes You Can't Make it on your own. and Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses.

Fantastic gig, made all the better by waiting near the gates all day and getting right at the front. Didn't have any problems with sound, but as I have experienced in stadium gigs, its all about where you are.
Couldn't believe I was finally that close the band, who I have admired for an incredibly long time. Favourites tracks were Wild Horse, Sometimes you can't make it on your own, the fly and elevation. Best 2 hours and 10 minutes of my life!!!!

it was a fab night and not sure if anyone else saw the balloons being released but they were mine lol. i couldnt believe it when bono took them after wild horses and let them go during intro of blinding lights!!! first time i have ever seen them live and loved it sooooo much, loved the songs, the crowd were fab - all in all a fabby dooby night. was anyone else literally moved by streets, the whole place erupted!!

U2 were amazing at Glasgow, beautiful day and a beautiful band, all there songs were the best ! wish we could follow them all around the world !!!!! how many people were at the glasgow gig on tues 21st june ??? any1 know ?? if so let me know.......

second time at a U2 gig, the sound started quite feedbacky to begin with howeverafter the 3rd song we were off and riding our wild horses. saw U2 at slane a few years back although U2 were technically superior at slane, however there was a loose vibe about U2 in Glasgow and for the first time both Adam and even Larry seemed to join in the fun as it is usually only Bono and Edge playing with the croud. I loved it , it doesnt get better than this unless U2 offered to play for 5 hours instead of 3. Highlights for me Bullet still gives me shivers,Where the streets have.... one of the most awaited of the night as friend Andy had never seen them live before and was in his first attendance and his favourite song. i also have a few pics if anyone wishes to trade come back soon U2 Please !!!!

i was at the gig!!!! first time iv ever seen them live, i loved every second of it. couldnt believe it when they played with or without you its been pretty rare in their tour so far, well chuffed i love that song so much. yeh i saw the balloons that was pretty cool.
btw u dont need 2 be there that early 4 a good place, we arrived at about half 4 ish n we were only bout 10 rows from the front, 2 of us managed 2 get right up 2 the edge of the left-hand walkway, saw them all (except larry) at about 2m away, was unbelieveable. have the photos 2 prove it!!! an unforgetable experience
lindz
ps couldnt believe the good weather lol

I was there with my wife who hadn't been to a 'gig' since Showaddywaddy over 20 years ago!! needless to say we had a mindblowing experience and experienced sensory overload during some of the later songs such as 'the fly'. We were standing about 6 feet from the left hand target and so saw Bono and the lads in all their glory, absolutely brilliant gig!

Great show - 7th time I've seen them..sound was not great - must admit I've heard better...best moment - difficult but for me it was electric co or streets (when i thought the place was about to explode)

Great Glasgow crowd again....lets go to a park somewhere next time..might help the sound.
