Show Report


'Usually we sing to you but here you sing to us.' Tonight's final show in Brazil went out live across South America and worldwide on U2.com.

'Tonight is our last night in South America and we wanted to remember this,' said Bono after Until The End of the World. 'So we're going out live on radio and online across the whole of your mesmerising continent as an excuse so we can have the record of this show. This show will last for ever.'

And for another capacity crowd at this third and final night at the Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo, as well as those listening online and on the radio in Venezuela, Peru Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Brazil - and all those tuning in worldwide on U2.com - this was surely a night we won't forget.

'Lift Up and Lift Off' said Chip in Philadelphia, on our live text feed, as we heard the opening chords of Even Better Than The Real Thing. 'Think I'm gonna blow my speakers,' added Badsilver. 'Never seen them live,' said Oscar in Iceland, 'Love when they do something like this'.

Extraordinary but little known fact of the night: the song playing before Space Oddity, ahead of the band's arrival on stage, was Telstar by The Tornados, whose rhythm guitarist was one George Bellamy, father of Matt of Muse, whose band played another fine set earlier in the evening.

There was more musical pedigree in the house tonight too: Steve Lillywhite had flown down from New York and when I Will Follow took over from 'Real Thing' Steve, the original producer of this track, was amazed to hear it 'sounding as good as it did 30 years ago'. And this audience is loud, as he told his followers on Twitter: 'People from Sao Paulo know how to make a noise at a U2 concert !'

Thousands and thousands of you from all over the world were adding to our live text feed, while listening live online, and everyone agreed that these Brazilian fans know how to enjoy a show.

'Don't think I'll need coffee to stay awake for this! said Eamonn Doyle in Ireland. Hoachy, in Falkirk, Scotland said that the sound is so good, 'My whole street are listening to this.'

Mysterious Ways was up next and BAM in NY captured the universal good vibes: 'What better joy is there than to rock to U2 live, or stream it, AND Tweet, FB, text, etc with all U2 Fans in the WORLD.'

Larry had a Brazilian flag across the drum kit as the band were introduced:'Ring those bells Edge, ring those bells.'

'I hope you like our current mode of transportation,' continued Bono, before Still Haven't Found. 'The space station has been to all kinds of interesting places and we mean it when we say that we are coming all the way over here to here to see you.
'Usually we sing to our audience but here our audience sings to us.
'Usually we put on a show for our audience but here you put on a show for us.'

No need to actually sing the song as the whole place was singing it for him. 'Let's go to church now...' After Pride, a special guest: ''We are great fans of a truly great artist here in Brazil,' explained Bono, 'His name is Seu Jorge.' Loud reception as Seu takes the stage to join Bono for a beautiful acoustic duet of 'The Model'. Another guest followed, a young woman to read a Brazilian translation of Beautiful Day which the band then follow with their own translation, seamlessly giving way to Miss Sarajevo - or 'Miss Sao Paulo' as Huubster in Curacao puts it.

And a great night is only going to get better.

'Zooropa... Vorsprung durch Technik
Zooropa... be all that you can be
Be a winner
Eat to get slimmer....'


For only the fifth live performance ever Zooropa returns to the set and it's perfectly placed before the Space Station takes off again. 'Bring on the Lemon' as a commenter in New York suggests.

'The best moment of the show!' says Jenny in Australia, welcoming City of Blinding Lights. 'A spectacle for the eyes and very good for the soul!' adds Joao Paulo in Brazil. And in a tour which keeps throwing up surprises in the set list, there was one more to come: All I Want Is You, bleeding into Streets, which was, frankly, something else!

'This is INCREDIBLE!' said FranciscoBrady. 'I´ve been to the 3 concerts in Argentina and i felt in heaven ! But tonight I feel like the whole world is connected trough U2 live from South America ! Thanks to U2 and hi to the rest of the world.. we are there.. right now.. yes, there, where the streets have no name! peace!'

A final word from Danny in Ireland: 'Thank you Brazil...you have given us the best soccer and now the best U2 fans..'

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT!!
I´ve been to the to the 360º concerts in Dublin(2009), Athens and Istambul(2010) and to the 3 concerts in Sao Paulo. All memorable concerts. The las night in Sao Paulo I was in the Red Zone. It was incredible how close I was to the stage. See Bono, The Edge, Adam and Larry a few meters from you... They´d showed their love for us and we´d showed our love back to them. It was a amazing night. Heard more than 90.000 people singing with and to them. I loved all the 3 concerts. I loved all the songs they´d played. It´s hard to me to say which one was the best. But the most hearted moment was when Bono asked us to turn on our mobile phones. Can you imagine more than 90.000 mobiles lit together? It looked like a constelation. In that moment your heart starts to speed. Then they played Moment of Surrender great song and wonderful lyrics. And in that moment you can hold your tears anymore. Bono, The Edge, Adan and Larry thank you sooooo much for coming back. On Sunday you Bono asked us to show how much we love the band and I think we´d proved that with the 3 amazing shows. we Brazilians really LOVE you!!

I surrender to U2
Thank you thank you thank you U2 for those wonderful moments ever! I was there on saturday 9th and I jumped, screamed, cried, all feelings were mixed up when they started the show. I was also with you guys em 1998 and 2006 and loved those shows. And because I loved the shows, I couldn't hardly wait for 360º tour! I was sure It would be amazing, and it was! After 35 years U2 stills delight the audience with their perfect songs and visual effects, they are always improving, and improving! Lucky us!. By the end of the show, all we could think was " Gosh! I wanna come back tomorrow". thanks god we had the chance to listen to the show on wednesday on sonoras's live! What a PERFECT transmission, guys! I'm very happy I could listen the missing songs from Saturday, like All I want is you, which I love so much! I bought my ticket 4 months ago and it was the longest months I ever had! Bono, The Edge, Adam, Larry! Pleaaaase come back sooner!

Magnificent Shows
I've been to all three show in São Paulo and they were all magnificent, awsome, an incredible experience for me! I went to the show of 98, the two evenings of 2006 and now I attended the three shows... the show of April 10th (Sunday) was the best performance of U2 I have ever seen... Out of Control, Zooropa and Ultraviolet were everything I wanted to see! Zooropa was a real surprise for me and other Brazilian U2 fans! Thank you guys!!!

I got no words to describe it!
I mean it. It was amazing! The stadium was so crowded and there was such an energy in the air! I couldn't help but cry when I heard Miss Sarajevo, Walk On, One and Moment of Surrender! The love could be felt when we were all singing to these songs. Just remembering makes me want to cry all over again. It was beautiful! It was amazing to listen to Bono say that *we* put on a show for U2, that *we* sing for them! It puts a smile on my face when I remember and I can't stop telling this to other people! When Bono stopped singing and just listened to the stadium singing... gosh! His expression makes me smile, it makes me proud to be an U2 fan. It made me sing louder. When Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me started to play I almost fainted! It's one of those songs I love and never thought I'd see on the show. All I Want Is You was f*ckawesome! Everybody was amazing and I wish I could have stayed closer to the stage to see Larry, Adam, Edge and Bono more closely. It was definitely awesome and will surely last forever! Thanks U2 for coming to Brazil and for performing for us three times!

Predict the unpredictable
I could hear Bono saying 'Predict the unpredictable' at the first of two night shows in São Paulo a few years ago, in Vertigo Tour to South America. I found a clear surprise, in this Bono's little message to The Edge, on listening 70 thousand people singing so high so many great songs on a language the most of Brazilian people do not know so well. Sometimes we barely heard to Bono´s voice, but stadium voice. I was at Morumbi Stadium last night too. That was much more special, not only because I could see U2 with my 18 year daughter (which means a lot to me), but also because I could hear my people singing as so emotional as Brazilian people are, jumping and singing songs very high, and also because U2 really feels us just like we can feel U2. This time, it was predictable but no less emotional and greatfull! Thank you guys for coming to my country, to bring us joy, love and soul. Wish to see you soon, again in SP. Alessandra

I'm a fan since the 80's, when I saw U2 on tv in the 'Live Aid' playing 'Bad' ... Me, my wife and daughter were at Morumbi on Saturday, and my wife and I watched the show again yesterday ... wonderful! Thanks U2! God bless you too! It will be an unforgettable flame ...

I love these guys I love U2 I love you, Bono That night was magic I don't know if it was the music,that I love and marked my whole life I don't know was you who are the band of my life or because i love you Bono Or was the structure "garra" , allthose lights and spectacle I always liked that Bono his concern for people around the world, their fight for humanitarian causes,along with their gonernments or coming to our hearts, making us look to our brothers in need throug his music and his tour. I love U2 forever

Better than good
This was my first U2 show. It was Magnificent, considering that I am a big fan since my teens... I cried and cried out loud while the show was going on. April 13th was a day of bringing dreams into reality, so I would like to thank you U2 for making my life better.
