Olympic Stadiumwith Snow Patrol
Show Report



This is the stadium where the 2004 Olympic Games were held and if the times have changed since those heady days for this country, the venue was packed to the rafters tonight, with the Greek audience generating as much noise as any on the tour to date.

Bono acknowledge that there have been tough financial times here lately before adding, 'Greece is a great country because of the Greeks... Ireland is a great country because of the Irish..'

The place was illuminated like fireworks night during One, not just with phones held high but an ocean of glow-sticks. Looked like someone even set off a flare in the inner circle. The excitement was tangible.

'Incredible people,' announced Bono at the end of a breathtaking performance of 'Streets. 'Incredible place'

Hold Me Thrill Me is back in tonight and by the time we get to With Or Without You, the audience have decided they can sing the song on their own. 'Wow!' exclaims Bono.' We won't forget this'

If you were there, sounds like it was a night that you won't forget either. Add in your own review and upload your photos below. Tell us what moment tonight you will never surrender, what you found in Athens that you never knew you were looking for.

MAGNIFICENT
Just got back home and i still have the music in my head. You were amazing, snow patrol made a good warmup and when you came on stage no words to describe. One, elevation, vertigo all the songs were great. I hope we as a crowd pleased you. Hope to see you on your next tour!

FINALLY WELCOME!
I love you since for ever... I grew up with your music which is connected with all my short life's turning points and major events, good or bad...the first vinyl I bought was the "unforgettable fire". I have laughed, loved, cried or mourned listening to you. You are a part of my wishes and dreams. I would love to kiss every one of you and thank you in person for the effect you have had in my life, for all the strength and support you have given me... your songs are my hymns...On my birthday I'm used to listening to the "joshua tree" non-stop! It's a tradition I have set since 1987:) ...so welcome to my place, Orpheus' country! you are certainly his children and my loyal friends! love U2...
