Estadio Cidade Coimbrawith Interpol
Show Report
North Star and Mercy among the highlights for first of two shows in Coimbra tonight. I Will Follow was another surprise early on, while Hold Me Thrill Me returned in the final encore.

Fifty four thousand packed into the Estadio Cidade tonight and what a noise they made.'Briosa, Briosa' called Bono as the show opened, the chant of the local Academica football team, and everyone here sang it back to him with interest.

'Where are we going? Lisboa... Porto... Braga...Coimbra!' What an ovation that received, welcoming the band for their first ever show in Portugal's main university town.

'If you'd gone to the University of Coimbra, what might you have been?' Bono asked Edge. 'I don't know if I would have lasted but I would have fallen back on my original career plan - a male model.'

When Larry grows up, he revealed, 'I fancy myself as a professional musician.'

Adam, asked Bono, you've had time to think about this. 'I'd like to try my hand at chemical engineering.'

As for the singer? 'Me? I am what I would have been... a travelling salesman. I sell songs with this group, my three best friends.'

Another special night on the long and winding road that is the 360 Tour and now just two night to go in Europe.

'Thank you so much. Obrigado. This is Moment of Surrender...'

If you were there tonight we want to hear from you. Post your own review below and upload your photos.

Thank you for another great moment/ conc
The show was great. It was my third U2 concert. You are the greatest band, not of the world, but of the universe. The best track an the highlight of the concert, were the same for me. The I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For song was my moment to surrender 2U on last night concert. My dream is to Know you in person. Maybe someday, who knows. Thank you for another greatest moment of my life. Emanuel

Mind blowing!... throughout time!
My heart was taken sometime in 1983/84 when I first came across U2. I was around 11 years old. Since then my soul has been filled with all the brilliancy, vision and mission of a band I learnt to understand and helped me understand a lot of new stuff. My favorite band. Thank you for the amazing night of Saturday in Coimbra! Absolutely mind blowing! Long life to U2. Don't you ever retire. Don't you ever end. Very few will be fortunate to live in a time when they could see you perform live, as your music will be played on and on throughout time. I dream of the day when I can take my daughter and my son of 3 and 2 to a U2 gig!... God bless.

Thank you U2 for an unforgettable night
Every single 45,000 Portuguese fan that saw last night show in Coimbra have witnessed an unforgettable night! And I also believe that the band (Bono, Edge, Larry and Adam) saw and felt an unforgettable audience! Thank you very much U2 for making us forget the “Portuguese crisis” that we live now and thank you for making us very HAPPY!!! Please return soon… for another Moment of Surrender!!!

A journey in the U2 Universe
After a hard strugle i manage to find a ticket for this show. Interpol was great.. A really a good choice to suport the show. The U2 show itself was mind blowing, the set list was almost perfect, (there is always a song or two the fans like to ear). Going to a U2 concert (and i have been to a few) is not only the best rock show out there, but is also a mind awereness uprising that we can still do something to change the world. Most bands can't do this. I'm still speachless as far as describing the show. Hope next tour you go up north and play in Dragon Stadium. Finally i cant wait for the new album, get it out here soon. lol best regards Adriano Rocha

An amazing concert in Coimbra
Great night ... great concert ... great band. For 20 years dreamed of seeing U2 live. My dream has come true. Bono has shown that music is a great ally of human rights advocates and their causes, which after all are the causes of all of us, with great soul. It was nice to feel the strong friendship between the band members. In Coimbra, the fans showed that U2 fans are unique. U2 always will rock my world! Ana Baptista

Speechless
There are no words to describe what I felt yesterday, while watching U2 perform live in Coimbra. It was indeed "a beautiful day". U2 has been my favorite band ever since I can remember: musicians, role models, friends, true art, true heart. It was my first U2 concert in 27 years of life and let me tell you: every future event in my life will only be compared with what I felt that day. Thank you, U2, for allowing me to feel what I never felt before, for giving us poems we can rely on and for making such wonderful melodies that allow us to dream throughout this short walk on life. Please, don't stop "crafting the tools" we need to dream: your music. Please, don't ever retire from being "travelling salesmen". We need you. The world needs you. Help the next generations to change the world. Thank you so much. Please come back to Portugal next time. We love you! Linda

Moment of a Lifetime
A Magnificent concert last nigh, 2 October.I've dreamed about this for years and now i've acomplished. Being there, only a few meters from the guys and earing the songs that i eard all my life is unforgetable, magical. You're still in great shape guys, better than ever and i was happy to see Bono jumping and with full energy after that back problem. The highlights were many, for me in particular "Where the streets have no name cause it's my favourite song ever. I liked a lot the new songs and i think they worked really well on the concert. I hope the guys liked as much as we fans. Free Aung San Suu Kyi now.

Im personal more in toi the tecnical facet of the show, watching the lighting and video work of the Bad Boys and the Barco Screen, but waht striked me the most was the was ot the light the video the sound or the Claw, It was you 4 guys interacting with all of us.
