'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..'

Kraftwerk-Questions ?
Answer: Play Zooropa to The model, or play Zooropa in your Trabant, or play Zooropa in your VW, or play Zooropa in your Audi, and most importantly play Zooropa in Sao Paulo. Be a winner!

After Zooropa... Please, read this! All
I laready sent a message saying that Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses would be a great choice! First, it was never played in Brazil (I know that because I've been to concerts in 1998, 2006 and 2011). Second, because I watched the re-release of the music video including scenes of the round ups the American Government makes to "unite" the wild horses and then send them to farmers... There are less than 25,000 wild horses in nature and the ones that are haunted get to be killed abusevely, because their either starve to death, are beaten to death or shot. Please, let's all protect nature as Bono's ONE organization protects people from hunger!! Let's all call attention to what's happening in the USA and help these beautiful creatures that are being extinguished due to man's greedy in search for oil... These amazing animals live in communities with their partners, children and relatives, but now they don't have any defence since even with laws protectiong their lands, the government is allowing farmers to kiil the remaining animals... What do you think guys?? Whos gonna ride OUR wild horses if they don't exist anymore? Let's all ask for this song so we can help these poor animals??? Uhuuuu!!!!

Ultraviolet in Brazil
Please ring Ultraviolet (Light My Way) in Brazil on April 13, this song is almost unanimous here, everybody wants to hear it. Without this song the show loses a little in their romantic part that binds to With or Without You And check back with The Unforgettable Fire and hold North Star. Thanks. Ultraviolet Touch, Touch Ultraviolet, Ultraviolet Touch, Touch Ultraviolet, Ultraviolet Touch, Touch Ultraviolet, Ultraviolet Touch, Touch Ultraviolet, Ultraviolet Touch, Touch Ultraviolet, Ultraviolet Touch, Touch Ultraviolet. U2 Live in Brazil.

It would be so great..
There's no doubt that the concert will be THE BEST either way. But I think most of the brazilian would like Ultraviolet instead of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me. And, in my opinion Pride is one of the best too. It's just a opinion, but i am really happy just to go on the concert :D
