Show Report


New Year's Day, All I Want is You and Love Rescue Me all arrived in the show tonight for the final stop in a record-breaking week in Mexico.

'Thank you for this last week,'said Bono in Spanish towards the end of With or Without You.'We've had some great times in this country. This has been the best of all. Can we consider ourselves Irish Mexican?'

From the top of the show it felt like this third night in Mexico might be a big one:'Even better than last night...' said Bono, after Even Better Than The Real Thing, not forgetting a special send-off to a band who've played support on this tour more than anyone else.'We'll miss you when you're gone - Snow Patrol.'

The signature opening of New Year's Day reminded everyone that on a third night in a city the band tend to throw in the surprises and this was the first of five tracks not in the show last night.

'I've been trying to describe my friends,' explained Bono.'Tonight ladies man Adam Clayton; on drums our macho man Larry Mullen Jnr; on guitars and everything else our resident genius The Edge... for myself I'm a Jack of all trades.'

That said he has a few specialisms including lead vocals and what better opportunity to illustrate this than a rare outing for All I Want is You. With Larry in a t-shirt reading 'Sexico', Bono celebrated the great week the band have had here.

'Last week in Mexico, birthday candles, dancing with my lady, drink-ing tequila, drink-ing tequila...' Only Love Rescue Me could follow that and it did with 100,000 voices on the chorus.

'We broke every record here... every night! We really thank you for coming,' said Bono.'I hope we can live up to this place that you've put us in.'
