Helsinki show - The unstoppable beast. Some shows just hit the highest of high note. Like this one.

Show Day Olympic Stadium, Helsinki. What a night this turned out to be. This past couple of weeks the show has hit a new peak, but tonight was the crowning glory. U2 have only played in Finland once before - 15 years ago at a festival - so the people here were more than ready for them. They were an absolutely spectacular audience and this could well have been the best show of the tour so far. Its sometimes hard to compare one show with another, because so much changes from night to night. Depending on the audience, the nature of the building and so forth different parts of each show have their own charm, so choosing one above another is a bit like choosing a favourite child. Some nights though, you just get on a 100% energy roll and the gig becomes a beast unstoppable, and tonight was one of those nights.
