"My 5th U2 show. This was definitely my favourite show I've seen, also IMO the best show of the whole tour). The band was on fire, the audience was great.
We got: Magnificent, Shine Like Stars, Bad and 40 What more can you wish for?!
This was the best night of my life! "
"Life is short but it's the longest thing you'll ever do,
the worst, the curse, was when that dream came true ;
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself,
Hell is a place where you don't need any help,
When I first met you your face was like snow
Wherever I went, you, you wanted to go ;
Your face, your grace, your lipstick case
A-17 you put it down on the ground,
Don't put your faith in a clown"
"I've been keen to put in Mercy, for the novelty value of playing something unreleased, and then there's Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World which will be a winner if we can make the production elements happen."
- Willie Williams just before the 360 tour resumed in Turin, 2010
