Even before the band arrived on stage tonight, we had a great ovation from another full house when over the PA came a track by Soda Stereo, the Argentinian band led by Gustavo Cerati, now hospitalised in a coma, and to whom Bono paid tribute at the opening show on Thursday.

Even Better Than The Real Thing again signalled the arrival of U2 onstage and what an inspired choice it's turning out to be as a show opener - everyone in the groove from the off. It closed with Edge making his way to the piano which almost certainly meant that New Year's Day was back in the show - and it was, to universal delight. Adam Clayton was introduced for the uninitiated, along with The Edge ('On guitar and everything else...') and Larry Mullen Jr ('On drums and everything else...')

After 'Boots', Until The End of the World jumped forward in the show to fourth track, one of a series of variations tonight: Stuck In A Moment was back and Ultraviolet also made it into the set list. Mysterious Ways went out to Kate Hudson who was at the show and the Saturday night party vibes had descended good and proper by the end of Elevation with the whole stadium chanting 'Ole, Ole.'

'Thanks Muse,' said Bono, taking a breath.' Thanks for taking us out last night.
'Tonight is Saturday night. Nowhere else we'd rather be than Buenos Aires.
'People go strange when they stay here. The Edge likes to dance. And Larry Mullen is dancing - there's something wrong in the world when Larry Mullen is out dancing.'

Another moment that will stay long in the memory was when a beautiful and passionate young woman took the stage to read the last verse of a poem by Violeta Parra, a Chilean Poet, Gracias A La Vida - a poem made famous by the late Argentine singer Merdeces Sosa.

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto/ Me ha dada la risa, me ha dada el llanto/
Asi uyo distingo dicha de quebranto/ Los dos materiales qu forman mi canto/
Y el canto de ustedes que es el mismo canto/ Y el canto de todos que es me propis canto

('Thank you to life, which has given me so much/It gave me laughter and it gave me longing/
With them I distinguish happiness and pain - / The two materials from which my songs are formed/
And your song, as well, which is the same song./ And everyone's song, which is my very song.)


These were some of our highlights tonight, how about you ? If you were at the show and want to add your own reviews and post your photos, we'd love to see them below.

THE DAY I BECAME A U2 FAN
IT WAS A PERFECT SATURDAY NIGHT. TOGETHER WITH MY FRIENDS LANEY & DEE DEE I SAW FOR THE FIRST TIME AN U2 SHOW. THE SHOW WAS PERFECT. THEY PLAY ONE NEXT TO WALK ON WHAT ELSE CAN A GIRL ASK FOR? I THINK THE BEST MOMENT WAS DURING ONE AND ON THE BEUTIFUL SCREEN THEY PLAY SCENES OF THE BAND MEMBERS IN FRONT OF THE OLIMPIC STADIUM BERLIN. WHEN I SAW THEM DRIVING THE TRABANT I REALIZE I WAS NO LONGER AN OUTSIDER. I BECAME A U2 FAN

My first show was an U2 one!
It was my 15th birthday's gift! Do you knew it? The 15th birthday is the most important for the girls in Latin America, like the Sweet 16. Girls became women. These things never matters for me, but it was the perfect excuse! In the last years, I thought: "I want something special, but I don't know what". But then came hard times in our lifes and I forgot all about this. Anyway, my family wanted to celebrate my life and asked me: Party? No thanks. Travel? Maybe. U2 SHOW? CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Now, I really know how important is celebrate with your loved ones happy times and stand united on hard times. THANKS FOR ALL THESE GIFTS! ps: and for my 18th gift, be sure that I WILL FOLLOW you in your next tour! ps2: remember me! (:

Crazy tonight!!!
I have 34 years, I continue to U2 for almost 20 years ago when I bought my first cd of them Achtung Baby. From the moment I first heard it, I had the dream to see them live. The two previous times I could not for various reasons. Until Saturday night I finally did!! I was moved to tears when they left the stage. This is the biggest thing I've seen. Awesome. Hopefully back soon and we fly over the head again. U2 Thanks !!!!!
