North Star Over Helsinki
A world in white created by the Finnish audience tonight and a thumbs up from Bono 'for the people with the white' at the beginning of New Year's Day.
From the intro music of Space Oddity to the closing bars of Rocket Man, once the band had left the stage, the audience in Helsinki created an almighty crescendo tonight.
Great to see North Star back in the set list for the first time since the opening night, the perfect moment to catch breath between 'Still Haven't Found' and 'Glastonbury'.
Some technical hitches with the super-screen at the Olympic Stadium delayed the band's arrival onstage and affected the visuals for some of the songs but nothing could douse the passion of another full house.
'There's so much for the world to learn from you, the way you treat yourselves and the way you treat others in far away places,' Bono reflected. 'You are amongst the most generous people in the world and it's when times are tough you really find out who you are€¦ so allow us to kiss your arse.'
