Show Report
Some shows just have something extra going on and tonight in Poland was one of those nights. How could it not be when you hear New Year's Day being in the country which inspired it, all those years ago?

A spine-tingling night right from the start with a huge and passionate audience. If they weren't in red and white - great planning by the fans here again - they were in U2 shirts or in Music Rising shirts or even, dressed like PopTarts. The opening clutch of tracks suggested this was going to be some night but none of us could have predicted the ovation when New Year's Day arrived. What a response

Say it's true, it's true...
And we can break through
Though torn in two
We can be one.


With the flag of Solidarnosc on stage it felt like all the hopes and dreams of this audience were captured in a song.
'Something going on here. There's something going on in this country,' said Bono. 'We could feel it the last time we came. This country is going somewhere very special. Is it faith? Faith in the future. Poland! Europe needs more countries like Poland...'

We sang Happy Birthday to Edge tonight and it felt like everyone was celebrating a birthday. Was it the best show of the tour to date ? Who can tell? If you were here, it probably was.

Polish Fans - Superb show
Once again this was a huge feast for the fans and the band as both seemed to have enjoyed the spectacular and mesmerizing atmosphere at the Silesia Stadium. There is a magic about U2 concerts whatever the location but I dare to say that Polish ones are simply unique. Please come again U2!

What a night!!!!!!!!!!
Great show again, symbolic, energetic, exciting. I was totally shocked by an awsome version of "I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight". So great to be again a part of this, here at home. Fantastic!

Magic.
I can barely find any words to describe a night like that. I've spent almost 12 hours waiting for U2 outside and inside the stadium and all I can tell is, that it was really worth it. It's been my first concert ever, and as well as that, my first U2 concert I have been to. I don't regret any second spent in the line to get into the Stadium, and eventually to get into the Golden Circle, which I have dreamt of, since the very begining of the U2 Tour. The crowd in the stadium was absolutely amazing, they were cheering up U2 as well as Snow Patrol. Some highlights? It must be the crowd singing "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" and Bono standing there in front of all the fans and quite not believing what he was seeing. The Milky Way during "One" is something that just can't be forgotten. New Year's Day - all I can say about it is just magic.

Happy Birthday Edge
Happy 48th birthday. If you are like me, the bigger the number the less you want to celebrate, My birthday 7/7/59 was a big one. 7/7 was a great day to have a birthday and I am sure 8/8 will be to.

Good Show
Great song choice for the list They picked the live songs from No Line, they picked their best live classics, and they have some of the better songs off of their best albums. Glad to see songs like Ultraviolet, Unforgettable Fire, and Elevation still apart of their live shows. Also glad to see that they havent forgotten some of the songs that made them famous such as New Years Day, Still Havent Found, and Streets

The best show ever!!!
I've just come back home from the gig or maybe this is not a good word 'gig' - a celebration. What we all experienced, especially when the Polish flag appeared, was absolutely fantastic! What a night! What a night!
