'All I Want Is Montreal'

'All I Want Is Montreal'
Zooropa, Scarlet, Ultraviolet -  who'd have guessed these would be in the set list before this tour began more than two years ago?  

All I Want is You, Stuck In A Moment, New Year's Day -  who'd have guessed these would be in the set list before this show began a few hours ago ?

Or that by the time With Or Without You arrived, 'SHINE LIKE STARS' was trending worldwide on Twitter.

Plenty of surprises on a memorable evening in Montreal when  another capacity audience at the Hippodrome, was joined by a global audience listening online.

'Tonight we want to give you as a gift to the world,' Bono announced. 'So tonight this show is being broadcast all over the world on U2.com, all over the world...'

'This has one extra benefit,'  he added, 'you don't have to listen to me mangle your beautiful language.'

'Its a beautiful dawn in Germany, ' commented  petrajohnk, in our live commentary running with the audio stream.
 'Everybody hearing the amazing show!' said Wilson Oliveira in Brazil.
 'Hi from Thailand' tweeted Norasate.
'Beautiful morning here in Denmark,' chimed  Baron_Frederik, 'Sun is coming up and Montreal in my ears!'
'Sounds great and I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere in Australia' added Dexter.
'I connect my BOSE sound,' said Omar in Mexico 'And it sounds like having the claw at home, just perfect, hell yesssss.'

Whether you were in the stadium or in your bedroom, this show took off again tonight - and it's hard to believe there are only seven flights left.

'We've taken our space station around the world,' reflected Bono. 'We're nearly home, we're going to have to find something else to do.
'When we were kids joining U2 was like running away with the circus, maybe we need to find another circus...'
In the home city of Cirque du Soleil, 'maybe there are a few jobs going'.  After all, Larry is a 'fire-eater, a sword-swallower, the world's strongest man.' Adam? 'The bearded lady...'  Edge? 'Trapeze artist, high-wire act... and I will play the clown.'

It's also the home city of another friend of the band, Leonard Cohen and his 'Hallelujah' found a beautiful home in 'Streets'.  'Word of the night.' tweeted BigWaveU2, one of our Zoo Mods.  'Hallelujah #U2360MTL Streaming to the universe. Where the streets have no name. Future, pucker up.'

By the time we reached With or Without You wherever we were in the world we were 'shining like stars in the summer night...'
