'Give me one more chance, and you'll be satisfied.
Give me two more chances, you won't be denied.'


Opening night of three at Estadio Unico de La Plata in Buenos Aires tonight and a big surprise right at the top of the show as the return of Space Oddity gave way to the unmistakable opening bars of Even Better Than The Real Thing. A huge response from this capacity crowd for a song that hasn't been in the live set for almost a decade, and the Argentinian volume levels didn't drop all night.

'What time is it in the world and where are we going?
Palermo... San Telmo... Canitas... Buenos Aires!'


Magnificent led into Mysterious Ways and before the return of the new and unreleased North Star we had a stadium-wide rendition of Happy Birthday led by Edge to Chanty, a good friend who's in town. Felt like there was a big Irish community in the house tonight.'Still Haven't Found' included a shout out to a special guest:'John Cusack in the house tonight.'

Bono wondered aloud why this place 'so far from where we live feels so much like home', before introducing his 'team-mates' with a suitably sporting theme for this soccer-crazy nation:'The youngest member of U2, with the feet of a dancer and a truly great dribbler.. Larry Mullen Jnr on drums'; also on stage tonight,'the handsome, El Pipita of U2 on bass guitar' and 'the omnipresent... Pupi Zanetti of our band, The Edge.'As for the singer? 'Not so sure but If I could be him I'd be Carlitos Apache...'

Great vibes all round, both celebratory and serious: felt like the entire stadium was clapping in unison during a moving instrumental version of Mothers of the Disappeared as Bono recited the names of the 'madres'. Special mention tonight also to so many fans who have been waiting outside, camping for days, ahead of this show.
'What a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful night, we will not forget this, what a great country you have, what a great city, out in La Plata, where the streets really don't have names. This Grand Madness, this Space Station, let's take out your phones and make it disappear...'

And there was one other special reference before the close:'Think about Gustavo Cerati...we send love, love, love and respect and he will hear your voices tonight.' As Alexis in Buenos Aires added on Twitter:'Bono just sent a big kiss and hug to Gustavo Cerati,a huge Argentinian musician, that is in coma for almost an year, great moment for Argentinian fans...'
If you were at the show tonight add your own review and post your photos below.

Ultraviolet!
I have been a fan for almost 30 years. I've only had the chance to see U2 live once in 2006 after 23 long years. It was a unique experience in which the band took me to another place. For my 2nd U2 show on March 30th, I have made a significant financial effort (I gave up going on holiday) and got a Red Zone ticket which not only makes me anticipate an unforgettable experience but makes me feel good about being able to collaborate to a good cause. I'm sure, that again like in 2006 I'll be able to feel LOVE, but to make my new "trip to another place" complete I need to hear "my" song live: Ultraviolet. Thank you.
