I had promised my son since he was a wee boy that I would take him to see U2 "The best live band on the planet" Due to ill health I missed the vertigo tour my first tour miss in 23 years. On Tuesday, after the show he turned to me and said " Dad, Thanks. That was absolutelly amazing, and I agree with you they are the best band on the planet" To see him jumping up and down, punching the air and singing word perfect to songs that were recorded 10 years before he was born, but songs he has grown up with was a very special thing. This part is really about the performance of the band. What can be said, absolutely "MAGNIFICENT" If anyone reading this disagrees that U2 are the best live band on the planet "YOUR WRONG"
This was Glasgow at their best. Its now 36 hours since the concert ended. I feel I'm still there. When the sound went during Walk On it showed the resilience of the crowd to keep singing. When the sound came back on (about 30 seconds) The whole place lifted and were still in time with the song. As Bono says during WOWY " Now sing, sing Glasgow like only you can" What a night :-)
This is an excelent recording, my only comment about it would be that the filtering software used for it has drowned out the massive sound from the crowd, as it is not as loud as it was on the night. Having said that I take my hat off to whoever recorded this and made it. I have soundboard recordings from other tours, and they aren't as good as this. mabey I'm just biased lol
Lows of the night................ No smoking in the stadium (WTF)
Highs. The whole night, just everything. From walking into the stadium and seeing the claw, the buzz when U2 walk on stage, The audience, the setlist and of course my sons reaction. I could go on and on. i know the band read these kind of forums, reviews. If any of you read this can I just say a BIG thankyou: Adam, Larry, Edge (Dave) Bono (Paul) for some of the best nights of my life. And Bono. I remember Barrowlands (UF Tour) as well lol. What about Tiffanys (War tour) or even The Queen Margaret Uni (Boy Tour) What a night Hampden was !!
