Introducing a new song from the stage in Portugal tonight, Bono said, 'In honour of last night and tonight... and the incredible welcome you have given us... we want to try something we have never played before. This could be interesting! This is Boy Falls From The Sky.'

This is indeed the song Reeve Carney performed on Good Morning America last week for the launch of Spider-Man, Turn Off The Dark. The sixth new and unreleased track that the band have performed on this European leg, the reception from the 55,000 capacity audience was huge. But then maybe nothing would surprise us on a tour like this one. After a day of heavy rain, the skies had finally cleared in time for the band to take the stage for the second show here and although we'd all got soaked earlier, the welcome for the band was overwhelming.

'Thank you for making us feel at home, this Irish weather is perfect,' reflected Bono. 'There's been some bad weather in the economy for both our countries but it is not going to stop us being who we are and tonight is going to be one of the best nights of our lives.'

And so it turned out, all the way from a blistering version of The Return of the Stringray Guitar - what an inspired choice of opener that's become - to the final benediction of Moment of Surrender.

Can't stop without mentioning Bono leading everyone in the football chant after Pride which was pretty special and the moving segue into Walk On: 'A message of love from Portugal, Coimbra all the way to Burma. Do not give up, one day freedom will be won. Until that day we'll stand by you...'

Were you at this last-but-one show in Europe tonight ? What are the images you can never forget, the songs still ringing around your head, the moments you'll never surrender. Add your own review below and upload your photos.

Thank You U2 For The Best Concert Of My
Best band in the world + Best crowd in the world (the portuguese!!!) = Best concert ever!!! I have no words to describe what happened in Sunday night at Coimbra Stadium! I only say that is worth each centime I have payed and that is worth the year I have waited for the concert! I beg to you to come back soon, you can make 2, 3, 4 or 5 concerts in Portugal that will always be sold out! Thank you once again for the amazing night you offer to all of us. PORTUGAL LOVES YOU!!! U2 - PERFECTION IS POSSIBLE!!!

Best night of my life
They say that after the rain comes the sun, and that was absolutely true in Coimbra on Sunday. After hours waiting in the rain, the concert made our night into the most Beautiful Day ever saw. It was an unforgettable night! Thank you U2 for that!

Great weekend in COIMBRA!!!
Hey guys, Me and my (future) wife loved both concerts in Coimbra. It was something magic and fantastic! When Bono thanks to all fans about give U2 a great life, i like to thanks U2 for the unique moments on that stadium. Today, October 4 before we return home, We have watched the empty stadium, the "broken" dismounted claw...everything passed so quickly, that for moment i think it was a dream. Bono, You scared the hell out of me in "Magnificent". But i realized the brotherhood of the band is bigger than everything in the world. I hope you're felling OK now.. You should play BAD...you placed between () and you missed...Better luck next time...You are GREAT!

FunTastic
In two words FunTastic... please come back soon because Portugal loves you too! In my last trip to Ireland there were a guide that told us that Irish and Iberian people have a common genetic past. Probably this is why we feel so much your musical vibes. This concert was the light that made the rainbow in a rainy day... As usual in some parts there were 55001 singers and 3 musicians playing. There was One that made me leak a tear and other 23 songs that leak my energy. Gártha Dia U2

One of the best nights of my life
October, 4th. Indeed one of the best nights of my life. A super show, a super band. I was happy to know that I was helping people with aids in Africa with my red zone tickets. Thank you for a night with such an amount of emotions.

Sunday Glorious Rainy Sunday
After almost an entire morning and afternoon of standing under some heavy raining,it could only mean that something great was happening that night.An it sure did. Amazing show of U2 combined with a vibrant crowd made an fantastic atmosphere. How about this for perfection: after an entire show with clear sky,just at the very end when Bono was thanking and saying goodbye,the first drops of rain start to fall,as he walks Singin in The Rain... I could say i was there! P.S. Eferreá is not a football chant,but a traditional university student´s one from Coimbra. Cheers :)

Best night of my life
Thank you U2! Sunday, October 3, 2010, was the best night of my life. I'm only 17, but you are my favorite band since I was a baby. Instead of listening to kids songs, I always asked my parents for your music. I'm from Coimbra and I hope you loved my city, because Coimbra loved you.

God bless you!
Yesterday was my fourth show of U2 360º tour and my seventh since 1993 (Zooropa in Alvalade) but this weekend in Coimbra, I saw my band U2 playing two glorious nights as if they were the best shows of our lives. These moments will stay with me and to those who were there until eternity, Thank you Larry, Edge, Adam and Bono! May God bless you with a long life. JOSE AFONSO.

15 years and the biggest fan of U2
I'm 15 and I'm Fantic by U2 since I was 8, I follow the band, I know the news, all the songs and lyrics and also are my Idols! I am sorry for not having gone to any concerts before because since U2 are already a band with some year career, but the opportunity arose to go to the concert of 360 ° Tour in Coimbra on October 3 ... But I wanted very much to have attended a concert tour of the zoo tv! Loved! But I think this concert will be unforgettable in my life and I still love U2 more because they fascinate me the way that leads to life and your career! Bono is a person I admire most in the world! Hugs best band in the world!!! Ivo Pissarro

Ultraviolet - 3.Oct
I'm looking forward for the Coimbra show... This tour is absolutely fantastic - have been to the the concert in Berlin last year, and it's just my favourite from all the U2 shows I have seen. If I could just hear Ultraviolet again ... I never have enough from that one. Please.... and yeah, Bad is also a great one - actually two of my favourites
