'Midsummer Nights Dream' in Baltimore.

22 June 2011
'Midsummer Nights Dream' in Baltimore.
'What a beautiful midsummer nights dream' said Bono, towards the end of one of the hottest nights of the tour in Baltimore tonight. 'Unbelievable...'

Or as  Max, one of our presenters on the live feed in  Zootopia  put it: '80s and humid - possibility of Shirtless Adam: mid to high...'

And so it was as the forecasts of  thunder and rain failed to materialise and the storm clouds  disappeared by the time the band took the stage at the home of The Ravens tonight. We were expecting 'Real Thing' to open the show but still a surprise to hear Edge wind up The Fly after that - hard to beat the 'Kraut Rock - circa 1991'.

Florence and The Machine were up earlier for their first night on the tour and Bono thanked them for taking a ride on the space ship.

'It's great to be back, it's so beautiful, Maryland...' The rolling hills reminded him of Wicklow - that went down well.

After introducing everyone else, first of several special mentions to Clarence Clemons as 'Still Haven't Found' featured snatches of Springsteen before we were all singing Stay (Faraway So Close).

'If I could stay, then the night would give you up.
Stay, and the day would keep its trust.
Stay, and the night would be enough....'

Was the night enough for you in Baltimore ? How hot did it get and what was the moment you'll never surrender ? Write up your own review of the show and post your photos on our tour pages.
