Show Report



At the Estadio Oli­mpico de la Cartuja in Seville and what a fine audience for another very fine show.

We have North Star and Mercy back in the set tonight, along with New Year's Day, after a short absence, and the always euphorically received Ultraviolet.

With 77,000 in the house, we're breaking records again and this audience are singing along like their lives depend on it - the sound is particularly crisp, thanks to Mr Joe O'Herlihy entering his 33rd year of service.

With just three more shows to go on this European summer leg of the tour, Bono reflects that it was here in Spain that we began this tour, way back in June last year, so it's great to be in the country again. But that's not all...

'There's somebody special here tonight,' he says, 'Who gave me my first guitar lesson. My big brother and it's his birthday tonight and he's come to Seville to celebrate.'

And we all joined in with a deafening chorus of Happy Birthday to Norman, to celebrate. 'Wonderful night, something very special...'

Was it wonderful for you as well? Let us know if you were at the show tonight - add your own review and upload your photos below and we'll see you again in Portugal on Saturday night.

for my beautiful wife
Dear Bono and band, Visiting Seville from NY with my beautiful wife Lisa to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary (not too far behind you and Allie) and to see your show tomorrow night. We will be sitting in the Red Zone. We're huge fans - have seen many shows at MSG, Meadowlands, old JFK and more recently with Gavin Friday at Carnegie Hall and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert in NY with Mick Jagger and Bruce. One of my highlights was taking my 3 children (Brendan, Madeline and Colin) to their first U2 show last summer in NJ - they loved it. Anyway, I know you get a zillion crazy requests but if you have a moment please wish my irish bride Lisa and soulmate a Happy Anniversary from Andrew. Also, would be amazing to hear Bad tomorrow night. Thanks!

Play "40" in seville - Why?
I´ve seen you since time began, well almost anyway, in various parts of the globe over the years. I´m from Joe´s part of the world - the real capital, Cork! Yes, I remember those days in "The Arcadia" - long time ago!! Anyway, now live in Seville since Jan. 2002. My Babe, who´s from here will be 40! Hence the reason to play "40". Can you do that for a fellow Irishman!? Looking forward to see the Irish U2 Circus in town. Sláinte - Johnny.

Greetings from CADIZ!!

Pride (in the name of love)
Please guys! I´ve seen you twice in Dublin, your hometown and now my hometown for the last 2years. I´m coming to Seville where my Dad was born (I´m Spanish) to close my small circle with you. I´ve been reading U2 by U2 for the whole summer and I feel like I got to know you all. I´m very surprised with the way of being you all are but specially Larry and Adam as normally you don´t appear that much on media. Please sing Pride (in the name of love) and dedicate it to people from Dublin, Seville, and Benidorm!!!!!!! I would be very grateful!

Thanks!!
thank you guys, for coming to my hometown, Seville. I remember, some years ago was unbeliave the fact of thinking on the possibility of U2 coming here, in two weeks that will be true. I know is complicated, but I'd like to hear songs like the fly, last night on earth, trying to throw your arms around the world, love comes tumbling, zoo station, numb..... see you in two weeks!!

Bono, Can you guys give me a ride home?
Hello, I am from Portugal, and I will be at Sevilha to the concert. Since, I will also be at Coimbra for both concerts (2nd and 3rd of October), I was wondering if I could take a train to Sevilha, and then, if you guys could give me a ride home, since you are coming this way. I don't know if it's possible. If not, no problem, still friends forever. :) Big Hug, and LET ME IN THE SOUND! António Paiva

The Sweetest Thing
Hello there U2, My name is Adrianne, and I am an original fan. The 360 tour will be my 7th tour, and my boys never disappoint. With my daughter recently off to college I have embraced the "empty nester" stage of my life as a mother and decided to fly off to follow your 360 tour. I can't express my excitement for your upcoming concerts in Spain and Portugal, for which my tickets have been purchased and my bags have been packed for weeks. What would make this adventure over the top on my list of unforgettable moments would be if you could honor your original fans, one of us "cougars" by singing to us on stage. Let me be first to volunteer myself! I don't know if I would be able to contain the thrill it would bring to me. I can only say that it would truly be the "sweetest thing." If you cannot find me in line in Spain or Portugal I will also be at your concerts in Denver and Utah. So Bono, please take care of your back so we won't have to miss each other and i can give you a BIG KISS!

Waiting for
So glad U2 are coming to my town... Foreigners coming to Seville to see the concert, just some tips: - Go to the Stadium On Your Boots! It will be the best way. Public transports in Seville are a mere joke, traffic will collapse -roads are so bad in here... Try to get either to bridge "Barqueta" or "Alamillo", from there cross the river. From there Stadium is 20-30 min walking. - Seville is a safe town, you could walk around nigh & day - Advisable to know some basic Spanish. Do not expect English-speaking add nor directions from people. - Try to be patient. This is the city of "Tomorrow will be done... " (mañana)

She moves in mysterious ways.. flamenco?
It's all right, it's all right, all right.. Sevilla!!
johnvertigo - 10 September, 2010
In a little while...
This will be my 12th time seeing the lads (my first was on the 22nd December, 1982 @ the SFX, Dublin...ouch!) However, I've never seen U2 outside of Ireland so I can't wait!!! I believe the stadium is a bit of a nightmare to get to with little or no public transport available from the city centre. Is this true & should I be getting on my (walking) boots?!?

U2 in Seville
I love U2 - No.1 band for me. But..... I bought a ticket for Seville show last year in Oct 2009 and was so excited to visit Spain for 2 weeks in Sep 2010. I am living in Sydney (Australia), I will travel through the globe, I have paid for my air ticket, all accommodation in Spain, train tickets etc. I will be in Seville 28 & 29 Sep and I am leaving for Marocco on 30 Sept. Unfortunatelly I can not be in Seville on 30/09,so I will not see U2 there due to general strike; it is not possible for me to re-organize hotels without penalties. I had to cancel my ticket for a show. It is very dissapointing, as I have seen U2 5 times in my life and wanted more... Why people need general strike in Spain? On other side I am lucky that U2 are coming to Sydney. I cannot wait. Cheers
