What time is it in the world and where are we going?' Bono asked after 'Get On Your Boots'. Tonight it was every time on the clock, depended which country you were in as the U2 360°: show went out live on YouTube to millions of viewers on seven continents.

'It's like we are all there at the concert,' said Baadsilver on our Zoootpia live thread 'We ALL have our hands in the air and are singing... crazy tonight for U2.'

Or as one clever Tweet put it, 'This has to be the best U2 concert I have never been to.'

From Breathe to Moment of Surrender, felt like a moment of rock'n'roll history tonight. If you were at the show add your own reviews and photos below.

Meantime, even though you probably know this, here's what they played at the Rose Bowl tonight.

Magnificent!
I was at the opening show in Chicago and I was just as blown away watching on YouTube. The show just gets better and better. I can't wait for the second leg!!!

Great Rose Bowl Show!!!
The last time I stepped foot inside the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, a young Charles White for USC ran wild during the 1977 Rose Bowl. It was a memorable day for a father and his doting, awe-struck son. A day I never will forget. This past Sunday, the twenty-fifth of October, 2009, and more than thirty-two years later, I retraced the steps of my youth and once again entered the Rose Bowl. My wife and I took our two daughters – ages fourteen and nine – to see the Black Eyed Peas and U2 in concert. Though I cannot foresee if our girls will harbor one day, the same joyous memory that I possess of the ’77 Rose Bowl, I believe wholeheartedly that Fergie and the local boys, Bono and his Irish cohorts, and the passionate, energized crowd of nearly one-hundred thousand initiated in our girls the potential for such a long-lasting memory. From the moment the Black Eyed Peas took the stage, a massive construction covering more than half of Mr. White’s old stomping grounds, all the way through “Moment of Surrender” by U2 – the evening’s final song, the pulse inside the Rose Bowl pounded and resonated so prominently that I thought the audio component of YouTube’s broadcast to the world was not necessary. We were heard. The bands were heard. And all as “One,” we ignited a potent energy that would have set off Albert Einstein on a new course of study, if he were alive. Possibly. Thank you to all the talented members of both bands and their respective crews for putting on an electrifying show, one certainly that will stay deposited in my memory bank forever. It was a moment when I was fortunate enough to have “found what I looking for.” U2. Black Eyed Peas. Keep up the good work.

Pasadena Rose Bowl...so MAGNIFICENT!
U2 was simply amazing. The band gave such a great show, so great that my wife and I will be seeing them again when they come to Oakland, CA in 2010.

TOTALLY EARTH SHATTERING!
This is the most amazing concert of the century! U2 once again has pushed the bounderies for other entertainers to try and dare to meet. They are awesome performers. The music was wonderful as usual. The stage, lighting and atmosphere once again are totally earth shattering and amazing! U2 ROCKS! Thank you U2 for putting on the best show ever and I feel so blessed that I had a chance to see you perform again.

No Sore Noses Here!
The nose bleed section was redefined with the introduction of the claw for this concert. Binoculars werent required for my group of friends this year because we could see everything close up and personal via the "tron-esque" monitor screen which (was something out of this world all by itself). The green tarp looking cover on the Claw legs along with the spotted orange plugs didnt stay those colors for long as multiple lights sang along with the different array of guitar notes and vocal lyrics. Ive never been to space but i swam in the milky way that night via 2x2 monitors in everyones hands. I loved that night. I loved that night.

U2 at the Rose Bowl - unmatched!
What an amazing night and amazing show. I've seen a U2 show in the LA area from every tour since the Joshua Tree days and this show was perhaps the best I've ever seen! Possibly only 2nd to the 1987 show at the Coliseum. Actually this show had a very similar feel, the crowd was really into it (97000 fans in LA, way to represent people) and U2 brought the house down and oh how fortunate we were just to be there. I'm still buzzing from this show even 3 days later and I haven't even had a chance to watch the video on YouTube yet! I've always believed no one can pull a stadium show off like U2, in fact I think they were made for such venues and they showed it on this night big-time. I was there relatively early and my number indicated I'd make the inner circle but a security breakdown ensured I did not - but truthfully I ended up not caring so much. The entire show was so great (including opening act Black Eyed Peas, they were fantastic and then the appearance by Slash - too cool) that I just felt blessed to be a part of the night and being in the near vicinity of the stage was just fine. Actually this was my first time in GA and I don't think I could have picked a better show to be down on the floor. Thank you U2 for giving us all a truly wonderful night. You guys are without any doubt the best band in the world!!! May God bless you all and I look forward to seeing you again in the OC next June.

What an amazing show!!! Pasadena, CA. It was a struggle to make it, but we got there. Since age of 10 years old, I've been a U2 Fan. I got to see them in Pop Tour, San Diego Ca. I knew this was going to be awesome. I almost didn't get my tickets the dady of Public Sale, but disputed with a ticket broker and it came up cheaper than expected. Saturday night, breaking down- I was determined to rent a car on Sunday. Usually car rentals are not open on Sunday, unless your close to an airport. Thank God, I got one and we got there with enough time. What was cool, is the fact that they sang the older songs that I wished they sang in Pop Tour. Its like a special moment for me. Bono, Edge,Adam, and Larry- you guys Rock!!! Thank you for another great moment in my life!!! When I used to sail the seas in the military, I always listened to you at the end of the days work!!! I am going to see you guys in Anaheim, close to home!!! What a beautiful wrap up in Southern CA!!! God Bless you guys!!!

Moving Experience
I will struggle to find the right words to describe sunday evening's show. The immediate descriptive is AMAZING! It was an experience I have longed for since discovering the band as a college freshman in a New York University in 1984. I went to the concert alone yet I felt like the world was watching. It turns out that they were. Broadcast live on 7 continents. The venue (Rose Bowl) was special too. 100,000+ fans, movie stars, perfect weather, Fergie, Slash and others. I encourage readers to start saving your money for the next shows in 2010. This band is phenomenal. They know what it takes to move a population.

THANK YOU!
Let me begin by saying, I have never written a fan letter to anyone, but after the show on Sunday I feel I have to say "Thank you" to Bono, The Edge, Adam and Larry for giving me my money's worth and more. I had waited 20 plus years to see U2 and they did not let me down. I am still basking in the afterglow of Sunday. The Blackeyed Peas were a great choice for an opening act. I also want to say "Thank you" for being a band that cares. Your performance showed that you care about your fellow man. Continued success to you and Godspeed!

TOTALLY AWESOME!
I'm in Texas, so the show didn't come on until 11:00, and didn't end until 1:30, but it was well worth it. I saw the band live in Norman, OK last week, and I was just as into watching the concert online. It was positively fantastic!! Hope to see more U2 in 2010!! Thanks again Bono, Edge, Adam, and Larry!!

I was there! In the inner circle! After many hrs in line, it was definitly worth it. They were bigger than life! Got to see Adam up close! yay! We had a great spot on the fence in the outer part of the circle. It was the best show I've ever been to!! That's 7 tmes for me now. BEP rocked us to the bone. They were amazing! Most of all, U2 has proven they are the best band in the world! At the end they were very humble and seemed surprised at the huge out pour of love we gave them. Thanks guys! You are wonderful people and we all love U!!

First Time, Long Time
I guess that I am fortunate to wait so long to see U2 in concert because that was the best show I've ever been to. My senses were tired for two days, when I finally fell ill to exhaustion! I was on the floor, about 30 yards back from the stage and I think the vantage point was the best to see everything. The stage is a major part of the show and if you were too close, you missed a large part of it. I loved the set list. No Line on the Horizon is going to go down as one of U2's best, and they did it major props by playing 7 songs from it. I've listened to U2 since '80. They are now more mature and professional. You can't box them into one genre but they are Rock's best! Amazingly enough, I think they are just hitting their stride now.

Best Tour Ever!!!
I have seen U2 on every tour since 1987 and this was an amazing night! I brought my 15-year-old daughter and my friend who had never seen U2 live and they both are now fans for life! We were in the inner circle right in front of Adam Clayton. We had Bono on the bridge going over us a couple of times! Amazing is all I can say!
