2009-08-20 - Sheffield, England - Don Valley Stadium


Support act: The Hours, Elbow
Comments: U2's first outdoor concert in Sheffield, and their first in the city since 17 June 1992. 300th performance of Beautiful Day. Happy Birthday is sung by Bono, Edge, and the crowd for Willie Williams. A very brief snippet of Gloria is at the end of Streets; it is the first time anything from October appears in any manner at a 360° Tour concert.

One of the best performances in 2009, all the reviews says good things about this gig and I agree with they! Not much too append.


Perfect quality!!


Really participative


Like I said, one of the best performances in 2009, not the first place by performance, but this is one of the best sound quality in U2start!!!

Hightlights: Magnificent, Unknown Caller (maybe best performance), The Unforgettable Fire, Crazy Tonight, Streets, Ultra Violet (Light My Way) Moment of Surrender and sound.
