Show Report


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.

From Glasgow to Paris!
Bought tickets for the Paris gig a year ago. Saw the concert in Hampden last year and decided to go to the Paris gig, in my homecountry, with a home buddy as we're both celebrating our 40th this year! We attended the Zooropa tour concert in Paris in 1992 together and are reunited again for what is bound to be une soiree FANTASTIQUE!

Hold Me, Thrill Me...
I just saw the setlist of the the Horsens, Denmark show on August 16, 2010. It will be awesome if could be the same in Paris. The encores are perfect with all my U2 favourite songs: One Where the Streets Have No Name Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me Ultraviolet (Light My Way) With Or Without You Moment Of Surrender It would be awesome to have both some Batman vibes and Ultraviolet... Please... :)

ticket!
Saw 360 in Amsterdam last year; now coming to Paris to enjoy U2 in Stade de France! One of my friends can't come, unfortunally, so got one spare ticket... if interested, send mail to my username at u2.com. Only 8 more nights! Hoping to hear No Line on the Horizon and Mothers of the Disappeared!

C'est Magnifique
My wife and I are heading over from Glasgow for a 20th wedding anniversary treat, even though it was officially in July. Can't wait to soak up all the atmosphere and heard that the Stade de France is fantastic for holding the sound inside. Was in the pit last year at Hampden but think we'll move back a bit this time to take in a bit of the 360 degree extravaganza. Will need to pack my tissues for One as it gets me every time. Only 8 more sleeps!!!

Concert Tickets!
Hello! I'm living in Paris four months ago. I love U2 and has been a dream for me to go to a concert of them for years. Could it be possible that someone is selling your ticket for the concert on 18th of this month. Thanks

U2 and the Mona Liza!
In the city of blinding lights, home to some of the best art in the world to be washed down with the metaphysical music of U2. To experience transcendence and the meaning of Being. To renew my existence and the brotherhood of mankind inside the Stade de France. Only a group like U2 can reach for the sky and find what I'm looking for! Please play Lemon like you did in the Zoo TV tour in Sydney, Australia. Herman, Miami Beach!

Achtung Paris.
Paris will be magical and so fantastic. hope to hear Bad. 13 days left..see you there guys. / Sweden U2 fan.
pablothewizard - 05 September, 2010
SO excited !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Having seen the guys 4 times on last years European leg (including Wembley 2 - the best U2 gig I've ever seen - absolutely INCREDIBLE) I'm drooling at the prospect of seeing them at the Stade de France. Every time I see them live I hope my expectations aren't too high but they just blow me away each time. I can't believe my luck to be seeing the best band in the world again and in such a magnificent city. The new songs are brilliant and they have shaken the setlist up nicely. I know that irrespective of what they play it will be an incredible experience, but am just praying that they play Bad. Its my all-time favourite U2 song and just lifts any show to a whole new level. Please lads, if you read these pages, please, please PLEASE play BAD on September 18th !!!!!

New Entrance
Would love to see a bigger and better entrance in Paris, some hard rock and bass to get the crowd going. Remember we love No Line on the Horizon, it aint a greatest hit tour. But lets face it, we will love the show no matter what.
