Every Breaking Wave in Vienna
After the briefest of five day breaks and the journey from Russia, the 360 Tour is underway again tonight in Vienna, Austria and the ninth show of the 2010 summer leg. Attendance records are broken at the Ernst Happel Stadium: 'On a Monday night - that's very rock and roll of you.'
Larry Mullen is a Friday night man, explains Bono. Edge definitely 'Saturday night' and Adam? ' Adam Clayton is definitely a Sunday night man€¦ watching the Discovery Channel.'
Every Breaking Wave makes another appearance in the set tonight, after Still Haven't Found and there was a sweet lyrical twist in 'In A Little While' - 'when you've known her 28 years' - as Bono references his anniversary with Ali. And a tantalising burst of Discotheque at the end of 'Crazy' before the politically potent passage that features Sunday Bloody Sunday, MLK and Walk On features spoken or visual references to the people of Israel/Palestine, the Irish flag and Aung San Suu Kyi:'The Nelson Mandela of this time, she is in danger this night.'
That's a pretty broad-brush sketch of the set from us but if you were there tonight you'll have you own highlights and memorable moments.
As one of you has already put it in a great review on our Tours Page: 'The atmosphere was very joyous from the beginning and Bono thanked the crowd by saying: "Wien ist anders (Vienna is different)"'.Add your reviews and upload your photos to our Tour Page
