Comments: The entire sound system dies briefly during Walk On but is restored quickly. U2.com's report on this show claimed that Mysterious Ways was played after One; it was not played at all. This error was finally corrected roughly a day later. Bono very briefly snippets Fuck You, It's Over by Glasvegas in both Ultra Violet and With Or Without You; he enunciates it poorly and the latter leads into "it's not over, thank you".

Recording: "Sing For Your Sanity Glasgow" - 3.5 stars


This part is only rated, not commented on


When U2 played Glasgow in 2009, it was less a '360 degree' experience and more a '220 degree' one. As Bono faced forward for the majority of the show, we were treated in the foreground to assorted liggers and hangers-on wandering about behind the stage. There was even a lad with a forklift shifting pallets. The sound cut out entirely during Walk On and while we concurred that the back of Larry's head was lovely, at £90 a pop for fan club presales tickets, the whole experience was underwhelming. And this was on the back of an awful lead single and an album of uneven quality.

Scottish gigs have always tended to be mid-week afterthoughts, but even by those expectations, this was a truly awful concert, thrown into sharp relief by Coldplay/Jayz's triumph the following week at the same venue.
