Favorite moment(s) of the night?

  • The first time the bridges moved, during “Boots”
  • 60,000 + singing “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
  • Acoustic “Stuck in a Moment”
  • “Unknown Caller”, a tough “corporate” song made incredibly simple due to the words on the screen.
  • The techno-ized “I’ll Go Crazy if I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” was the BEST.
  • They played “Unforgettable Fire”
  • “MLK/Walk On” moment for Aung San Suu Kyi
  • Bono’s LED suit for the encore, “Ultraviolet”, “With or Without You” and “Moment of Surrender”

Here’s a picture of the “Claw” from “Sunday Bloody Sunday”. It’s green, in support of the opposition party in Iran.


I’ll post more pictures and some video soon.
