'We feel right at home here in this the home of space stations.' Quite so, the day after Bono and Edge had visited the Johnson Space Centre and spoken to the astronauts orbiting the earth. Those men and women are 'heroes to us - to you they're just next door neighbours.'

This show's been in orbit ever since Barcelona in June, but at the Reliant Stadium in Houston tonight there was more space than usual. 'Chief Flight Engineer Larry Mullen, Space Walker Adam Clayton... Houston we have no problem.'

To top it all when Your Blue Room entered the 360 orbit for one of its occasional and welcome appearances, the voices of the astronauts were speaking over the track. And who better than ZOO TV's alien space baby to show up for Ultraviolet ? Could these Texans have made any more noise? Unlikely... unless Bono muses before Moment of Surrender that 'Texas to me is the centre of the world right now'. Even more noise.

Special mention to tour cinematographer Tom Krueger, during With or Without You. 'Thanks to the our amazing U2 crew and Tom Krueger - you know how to throw a good party Tom.'

How was it for you in Houston tonight? Tell us what it was like and post your photos below.

Me and Bono on stage!
Hi my name is Kusum and I have been an avid fan of Bono, The Edge, Adam, and Larry for many,many years!! I admire their work and dedication to people of the world & hope I can do something in my life to help people in need. Thank you Bono for making my night! Quite possibly my YEAR and LIFE!! To be on STAGE was the most surreal, amazing thing that has ever happened to me! I didn't sleep last night and probably won't be able to for some time!!! You are an amazing person and you have such a beautiful aura about you that I felt just being up on stage with you!! Thank you BONO and U2!! Respectfully, Kusum ps I will attach photos whenI get them from my sisters!

Lift Off Was Great
The Houston show was great last night. Lift Off was a success. This was my 7th time to see U2 and every show was super, and they left nothing out here. signed: Samuel (465)

How Can Anyone Be This Good!
It is amazing to me after so many years, so many albums and so many concerts that this band continues to get better and better. The songs are timeless and every time they put a tour together, there is the theme of love, good works, and just an overall positive feeling that anything can be accomplished. Though the theme is the same, the show is completely different and the new songs blend perfectly with the old ones and those old ones are redefined in such a way that you feel you are hearing them for the first time. I dare anyone to show me a better concert than what I saw earlier this evening. U2 continues to respect their audience by giving it everything they have every night. They continue to challenge us with fresh and innovative songs and I thank them for it. In particular, "Mysterious Ways" was simply amazing.
