Show Report
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.

My story (in a timeline)
Arrival with 6 friends hoping for the inner circle: 6:30 am Waiting with 10 friends (4 new ones we gathered in line) for the show: all day 3 of 7 tickets rejected at the gate: 5 pm Cleared things up at Will Call: 5-7 pm Hugging the man who would not let us in the first time: 7:15 pm An angel, or maybe a girl, helps us get past security and into the circle after hearing our story: 7:30 pm Finding my friends in the crowd by faith alone, and a front-and-center-of-stage celebration: 8 pm Sweet Child of Mine: 8:15 pm. How can I describe the rest? Adam and Larry laying the foundation. Edge quietly tearing up our minds. Bono going mad until we all went with him. Aung San Suu Kyi being more present than any of us on planet earth, trying not to fall off: 9-11:30 pm. The journey home to waiting sheets: 11:30pm-2:00 am.

Thank You
This show was the experience of a lifetime and we thank you very much for sharing it with us. While we are newbies to U2 concerts (have only attended 4 so far), each concert is a spiritual awakening for us. Please keep spreading your words of hope, peace, brotherhood and kindness and concern for one another, and keep challenging us to live our life this way. In our lifetime we never want to hear the words "war 1." Thank you boys and look forward to being there again in Spring 2010, the good lord willing.

Mind blowing
U2 keeps getting better. Despite the immensity of the stage, U2 did not get lost in it. You still felt as if you were right there with them the entire time. Can't wait for Anaheim 2010!!

Words Fail......Wow
There are no words to describe it. We were in the inner circle last night, about 5 feet from the rail, right in front of Edge's amps. And the experience was absolutely beyond words. It was incredible. From our vantage point on the floor, everything was perfect. I've watched all the youtube clips of this tour, and from the floor, Bono's voice sounded stronger than I've heard it in a long time. The house mix was absolutely perfect. And the crowd was so into it that we were falling all over each other. If we weren't still jumping up and down during 'In a Little While', it's because we needed those slower songs to recuperate! All of us in there had been waiting in 90 degree heat outdoors for at least 10 hours, had to survive the mob rush over security to the gate, and were going absolutely crazy during U2 with 2500 other fans pressed up on us, and no water. I'm a 25-year-old guy, and in decent shape, and I almost passed out more than a few times. I don't know how it didn't look like were into it, but from my viewpoint, everyone was absolutely crazed. Even on the slow songs where we were resting so we could get into the next up tempo one, everyone I saw was singing every single lyric...including the new songs like No Line and Unknown Caller! In fact, Unknown Caller might have been the loudest song as far as fans' voices go! Amazing. I have no more words. It's been over for 12 hours now, and I still feel like it just ended 5 minutes ago. In the words of Keanu Reeves, 'Whoa.'

WOW!!
The whole show was absolutely amazing. My mom and I got there at noon and tailgated before the concert. Then Black Eye Peas opened up and they were excellent like always. Huge surprise when Fergie brought out Slash (from Guns N Roses) and he brought out his guitar and they played Sweet Child Of Mine. Then after a brief intermission U2 came out and played for well over 2 and ahalf hours. It was just amazing. The Tour Footage im watching on youtube just doesnt do it justice. Cant wait to see them again live at the 2010 Tour opener.

Thanks for the memories
Even though the sound was a bit muddy in our section of the stadium, the sheer energy of that many people (and I thought Slane was huge!) made this a night to remember.

Double your pleasure, double your fun..
What a bonus! My husband and I participated in the Magnificent Norman, OK, show on October 18. We had seats high in the stadium and had a wonderful view of the entire stage, claw, and crowd. I spent a lot of time using my binoculars as well to get a feel for being up close. The YouTube webcast provided the feeling I was looking for--great video of the "fabulous four" up close and personal. Thank you for arranging such a privilege. I especially appreciated the little segments of backstage activity. They move in Mysterious Ways!

I Was There
It was certainly a night to remember. I have been to many U2 shows, in many places. And last night at the Rose Bowl was by far one of the most amazing shows I've ever seen U2 perform. It was a spiritual congregation like no other and coming together of a mass of people to celebrate music and humanity. It was truly a special night.
hbbird - 26 October, 2009
Totally awesome, as usual
so glad my husband and I got to attend the show at the Rose Bowl last night. U2 was and is totally awesome! Its been about 28 years since my 1st U2 concert and they still totally rock. Can't wait to see them in Anaheim next year. Love you guys!!

THE SWEETEST THING
Hello from Latvia!!! It was the best early Monday morning in my life so far! THANKS TO U2 AND TO EVERYBODY WHO ORGANISED THE GIG!

Nicole and I were at the Rose Bowl. Best of the 57 shows we have seen over the years since 1981. Cannot believe the achievement of the stage. Magnificent 4 were the "Blinding Lights" Tonight.

Phenomenal!
Just got home from Pasadena and can't sleep! Watching Bono communicate with that many people is truly watching a Maestro at work. The guys always deliver on a grand scale, but tonight exceeded my expectations! I don't think I'll be able to sleep for a week!
DJLMS - 26 October, 2009
Great Night!!!
I went to the both Toronto, both NYC and the Washington concerts and I will be going to the concert in Vancouver. But, I must say; webcasting on YouTube is Amazing... See you in Vancouver!!!

A MAGNIFICENT, MAGICAL, AMAZING (GRACE)
A perfect day. A glorious night. A stellar and spectacular concert, done with excellence and the unsurpassed talent of four men I have come to love over the last 27 years as if they were family. Well done, good and faithful servants (of God and the world). Blessings and love - mb <><

Just got home from the Rose Bowl...
Just got home from the Rose Bowl... Thank you, U2, for another amazing show! It was amazing! I closed my eyes and soaked it all in (while still recording from my phone!) my favorite song, STREETS, and was simply in Heaven. It was a glorious night in L.A!!! Thanks for the special starting line up of the Black Eyed Peas and the surprise guest, Slash! I was a bit worried being in VIP regarding my seats since I was first row Ellipse for Vertigo in Milwaukee. But I was very happy with my seats and wouldn't have traded them for anything - I think this concert needed a little backing up in order to really grasp the total effect of the stage. It truly was magnificent! I feel so blessed. Please come back to L.A in 2010 all of L.A has been hoping you do!!! You are so loved here! God bless you, U2!

Great concert
Fantastic band, thank you U2 and You tube. Lets hope the stream can get better in future web gigs. By the second half the picture was still for longer than it was moving. Happily the sound continued loud and clear
