Hours Until Showtime
Maybe these Italians don't need sleep.
In the early hours of this morning, having waiting outside the venue all day, hundreds of fans got to meet the band... who brought everyone pizza.
'I came there at 14.30 and I waited with tens of other fans for hours, without moving. We hoped in an autograph but we had the whole band and a slice of pizza instead,' said Xalira on Zootopia. 'They all delivered pizzas around 1:30, when many people had already given up hope. I was in the first row with some other Italian girls... We got a pizza from Larry and ate it (6 people for 1 pizza). I think the girl who got it won't throw the pizza box away.'
Just a few hours later now and everyone seems to be back at the stadium, aiming to get into the show first.
'They have to play 'Moment of Surrender'
'Magnificent.' 'Streets'. 'One of the new songs..'
Anyone you talk to has a hunch about what the band will play tonight but no-one will know until Larry, Edge, Bono and Adam walk out on stage for the first time since last October.
