Dublin show - The Great homecoming. Enormous senses of sense of pride from the Irish for "Our Lads".

Dublin Show One. The great homecoming, and if there was ever any doubt as to how U2 would be received in Dublin, it was laid to rest tonight. The show was like having a bath in the communal spirit of this city. All inside the venue were there for the party, almost wallowing in the occassion, the uplifting celebration and not a little pride on the part of the audience that their lads had conquered the world yet again, and brought it home on a silver platter. The audience sang, they roared, they laughed. Great great vibe. Even a private joke, as The Edge sings "what could be the Irish national anthem come November" - a song called "All Kinds of Everything", which won the kitsch-fest Eurovision Song Contest in the mid-eighteenth century, sung by a child star called Dana, who is now a grown woman and running for the presidency of Ireland.

After the show, what else but a 'Rigger's Arms' party down at the 'Kitchen' club in town, where we laugh, dance and celebrate some more. Bed late, hearing unsettling rumours of Princess Diana in a car crash.
