17 years
Dear guys from Dublin! We met for the first time 17 years ago, on ZOOTV tour, it was on 24th of May 1992 in Vienna (Donauinsel). And I shook hands with Bono then. Then I was a 17year old kid, with long hair etc... Now, 17 years later, we have same haircuts again. They are not long any more. ;) And I must say that if ZOOTV was the first multimedia try, 360°tour is 10 times better. Dear Lawrence, dear Adam, dear Dave, dear Paul, thank you for special time on Maksimir, on 10th of August. And please, after another 17 years, give us a chance to come to celebrate again. :)))) Best wishes from Maribor, Slovenia.

2nd concert in Zagreb
It was awesome! My first U2 concert and I was just 5 metres away from stage. Irish rockers prooved that they, after all those years, still rock! A lot... =D We had also very good 'warming-up' with The Hours and great scotish rockers Snow Patrol. It was just an amazing concert, I will never forget... Thank you guys for this awesome show you've had! =D

Dreams DO come true !!
Yes, drems DO come true! This was my first time at U2's concert and it was my dream as long as I can remember! Standing in the crowd, listening to the beautiful lyrics, feeling the positive energy.. it's everything that ONE could wish for! And we were realy all as ONE! In one moment I just stoped for a few seconds, enjoyed, soaked the energy at the same time not believing that this is true. MY LORD, I 'M REALY ON THE U2 CONCERT!! I was mezmerized!! The whole time my eyes were filled with tears, NOT JUST 'cause of the fact that I'm there where I am - it was the messages that, YOU GUYS, are sharing all over the world - love, peace, humanity, respect no metter what color, religion, nation one is.. And those messages are what each and every person needs to hear over and over again.. especialy in Croatia where the people are still frustrated by our past, even the young ones.. Huh, I could get on and one.. my point was: Bono, Edhe, Adam and Larry, THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE BEST EVENING EVER IN MY LIFE !! I hope there will be many more.. one thing is sure: the people who were on the stadium Maksimir on the evening onAugust 9th and 10th were the luckiest and most blessed people that two night on the Planet Earth! I thank you for that !! I love U (2)! :)

WOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW
I was in Dublin for the Friday and Saturday show. I thought those were the 2 best shows in my life. Then, the guys came to my home country. I knew it was going to be a great show, but honestly I didn't expect the craziness that we witnessed. I had a seating ticked because I wanted to see the Claw from that point of view. Being in the pit, for the first show and then GA for the second one, you never fully see the beauty of the humongous stage. But then, when the whole thing started, I was left speechless. I really can't put in words how I felt. The people, the band, the setlist... Simply - PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!! I had a phone call from a friend in Dublin that was listening to a stream of the show. "Until the End of the world" was a beautiful surprise. The Monday show was just too intense to be described. The balloons, the even crazier crowd, the band in the shape of their lives!!!!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME BACK REL SOOOOON!! THE CROATIAN FANS ARE WAITING FOR YOU!!!!! Only love can leave such a mark!!!!

Only love can leave such a mark
Thnx U2 for gracing us with your coming. Both of night were amazing but second one was way emotional and powerfull. I was in the first row and to be so close to creator of my soul food is something for life. Zagreb is thankful and recomends it self for MORE!!!!! My special moment was ONE after fabulous massage of Bishop Tutu with thorch lighted on the east stand and Ultraviolet with Bono hanging from that cool mic. What am I saying - the whole tho days were SPECIAL! I will follow - kiss from ZAGREB.

Where the streets have no name
Thank you U2 for absolutely wonderful night in Zagreb which I will remember for the rest of my life. My dream to see you live on stage has finally come true, and was even more than I imagined. Power of your songs and your energy reflected itself on the sea of people, splashing wave after wave. It was overwhelming to watch everyone singing as one, putting our differences aside and just be one soul, sisters and brothers. That makes me hopeful, restores my faith in human kind and for that I am truly grateful. Love you and hope to see you again soon :)

Last night... we were as one <3
A lot of my friends asked me today to share my feelings, thoughts and memories about the show and after countless words, both spoken and written, I still feel like I didn`t tell it right... From the first sounds of "Breathe" untill the mystical atmosphere that gave me chills during the "Moment of surrender" I felt so alive. This was my first U2 show but most definately not the last one. Thank you U2, tnx to everyone in the audience. <3 Dunja, Hrvatska

SPEECHLESS :))
I've been waiting for this concert all my life :)) I'm your fan since I was 10 :)) !! The moment I saw the guys comming out on the scene, couldn't stop the tears running ... The Unforgettable Fire was UNFORGETTABLE, and so was the whole concert. And you guys, thank you so much for all these years, and for all those songs that take a very important part of my life!!! Hope to see you again in Croatia! You're so WELCOME here :)))) Big kiss from Ivana, Ante, Tonka, Franka and Ivan :))

Both days in Zagreb
Thank you for coming finally to Croatia!!! I've been waiting for this from 1989. Since there were many people from the region on both concerts I belive that song One had deeper meaning for all of us! Don't you forget us!

Miss Sarajevo
I forgive you guys for all of the tears I shed last night :) the tears of joy....first of all, thank you Bono for mentioning ''beautiful Sarajevo''...that meant the world to me ! Please, do come to my home again, soon :) I'd put ''Ultraviolet'' aside as my favorite moment last night. The scenery was absolutely amazing, colours and four adorable guys...''Unforgettable fire'' will definitely remain unforgettable ! I think that's the moment I lost my voice..and, my all time favorite U2 song ''With or without you''..well I could describe it as ''you give it all, but I want more'' :) THANK YOU FOR THE BEST TIME OF MY LIFE! Thank you for making me shamelessly happiest woman in the world! Peace and love.....or else!

The Milky Way
I have never been a great fan of gatherings where you're surrounded by enormous number of people. Yesterday completely changed my perception. It has been awesome experience. Everything was perfect: weather, stage, people in the audience, The Hours, Snow Patrol and U2 of course :-) Great artists who really made an excellent job. So thank you for sharing your music and vision with us, little stars in The Milky Way :-)))

Croatia loves U2
Magnificent night!Thank you guys! Croatia loves you! Come back soon.

Absolutely phenomenal
I was on both concerts and I must say that second concert fulfilled my U2 experience to the maximum limits. A spectacular show on both days, but more stronger play-list on the second night (for my taste). This is the music show that I have been waiting for half of my life - I'm not disappointed even the slightest. PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT THANK YOU, U2... THIS WAS MAGNIFICENT!!!

Zagreb, Day 2
It was the concert of my life!!!!!! I've seen both shows, Sunday was great, but last night was a dream come true! Thank you, guys, and please come back! And.. the moment I'll never surrender is the one when Bono was walking around the circle and smiled at me and my camera! *thrilled*

Ultra Violet
Yesterday I was listening in my living room, but tonight I was actually the there. Thank you U2 for making us pride. Zagreb lived those 2 days for you and because of you. This is one of my last dreams that finally came true. Hope to see you back here very soon. Great show, great set! Thank you for Ultra Violet… Has a very special meaning for me!
