Opening with The Return of the Stingray Guitar and featuring North Star and Mercy, tonight's show included three of the five new tracks the band have premiered on the 2010 European dates.

'Great show, such energy,' as one of our first reviewers puts it. 'Really good to get 3 of the gorgeous new songs, Wonderful set list'.

MLK was also back, in place of Mothers of the Disappeared, and Hold Me Thrill Me, in place of Ultraviolet. The white balloons blanketed the Stade de France tonight and we had a record-breaking concert audience here of ninety six thousand. Bono introduced the band in French much to everyone's delight. 'The guys were at the top,' says another of our reviewers. 'The sound was great, the set list too, the audience and the energy were fantastic, it was simply magic and amazing. What a show, what a band, what a night in Paris. It was only rock'n roll, and I've liked it... '

Plenty of well-known names here too from fashion and the arts - Fabien Verschaere, David Guettta, Helena Christensen and Marion Cotillard, Petra Nemvoca - to politics, including French Minister for Culture Jack Lang and Minister for Finance, Christine Lagarde as well as Irish Ambassador Patrick Kavanagh.

'Multiple highlights,' writes another fan. 'The new staging of Walk On is wonderful and affecting, B-Man calling out the French Government in SBS reminded me why they are the last relevant band on earth, Mercy and Amazing Grace / Streets. What a segue...' A big, bold, bright Saturday night show, third and final time in Paris for the 360 Tour and a memorable way to sign off. But if you were there tonight, you'll have your own special surprises and highlights.

Great, Great night in Paris
Great, great night in Paris with the Boys......Caroline and I brought premium seats having stood in Dublin, Red Zoned in Wembley etc. 4th Show of 360 for us and a truly great performance with multiple highlights - the new staging of Walk On is wonderful and affecting - B-Man calling out the French Government in SBS reminded me why they are the last relevant band on earth, Mercy and Amazing Grace / Streets. What a segue. Don't drop [ Grace] when you make it back home....... Please, Please finish the tour in UK / Ireland..........And Play Gloria at least once on the tour - otherwise at least I have the snippet from Sheffield!

From Brazil
The best show ever. I came with my wife from Brazil just to see this show and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Thank you U2 for this. It was the first show that I have seen, because I lost the shows in Brazil in 1998 and 2006. Fantastic !!!

Queuing Time
Any Stade veterans know what's the best time to start Q for Pitt? I reckon about 3 should be good if Croke Park was anything to go by.

Peter Rowen is in the house !
Peter Rowen, the cover model for U2's 'Boy' and 'War' will be at the show in Paris ... so please, play TWO HEARTS BEAT AS ONE. The video for that song was filmed with Peter in Paris ... would be huge !!!

One day two hours and the door of the Stade will open. I received my tickets one years ago. I was last year in Wembley, and I'm looking forward to see the four guys of Dublin again on stage. See you tomorrow for big party...

Bad news to me!!!
On October 2009 I decided to go for my fourth time to the U2 concert after my awesome experience in Barcelona!!!! I tried to get tickets to go to Portugal…no chances for both dates! It was sold out in less than 2 hours…Then Paris show came out, and I decided to subscribe on the fan web site in order to have the chances to get my tickets in advanced…so I did!!!! I bought my ticket, on the floor, as always, to see them really close!!! Days were passing, and I was counting the days…!!! On August, I bought my plane ticket to Paris, since I live in Madrid…I even had my hotel reservation!!! And just yesterday I found out my plane was cancelled without notice whatsoever!!!! I soo want to gooo!!!! I just need a miracle…. If not, have fun guys!!!
