Saturday Night, Two Days To Go
There's only a couple of days to go now and last night the band arrived on stage late and went through the whole of the new show until... very late.

Our lips are sealed on what tracks they played - if you want to find out, it's not difficult, but if you don't want to we're not about to spoil the surprise. But here's a few clues.

Seems like the band are intent on really mixing things up on this tour. Following all those weeks of rehearsals in Dublin, they're sounding very tight musically and at Camp Nou they're focussed on the production - how to make themselves at home on a breathtaking new stage, how to be 360 for two and a half hours. They've rehearsed thirty-plus tracks and last night ran through more than two thirds - as well as a cracking selection from No Line, we counted songs from EIGHT different albums. Also noticed one or two familiar songs have been... reimagined.

Going to be at one of the first shows in Barcelona ? How you getting prepared ? What are you expecting ? Seen the band before - got any advice for people seeing them for the first time ?

Countdown two days....

One of my biggest dreams in the last 10 years was to attend a U2 concert. So when i bought the tickets for the opening tour concert in Barcelona, it was one of the happiest moments in my life! I came to Barcelona since 25-th of June and i am counting the hours until the show beggins! PS: i am secretely hoping that somehow i will see the guys somewhere in Barcelona these days... :) See you on Tuesday!!!

Camp Nou Tuesday evening
I just can't wait for Tuesday evening,this is going to be one big fiesta in the summer sun in Barcelona.I have followed the guys since 1980 when I was just a kid.I will not miss this show for anything.One of my best memories was when I was right at the front of the heart on the elevation tour(2001)in Barcelona.It was the 40th birthday for the Edge.Girls came down from the ceiling with a cake.Then Bono opened a bottle of champagne,I was that close I tasted it. Here's to a great show on Tuesday evening..
