Thunder and lightning set a dramatic scene for tonight's final date in Buenos Aires. The Argentine national anthem was followed on the stadium sound system by Soda Stereo, another tribute to Gustavo Cerati, and just as we were expecting the new show opener... we didn't get it.

There's nothing predictable about this show. Tonight The Return of The Stingray Guitar was back to announce the arrival of the band on stage with Bono singing 'Argentina, Argentina...' as the unreleased track segued into Beautiful Day. They were among the first of five changes to the show including the return of Pride and, for the first time in 2011, to Bad.

It was a seriously rocking night with @alonsonico on twitter, who lives in La Plata, reporting that his 'flat is shaking right now because of the concert.'

The sonically reimagined Even Better Than The Real Thing arrived when we weren't expecting it after 'Boots' and La Plata kept shaking for Mysterious Ways. It was turning into a memorable way to bid farewell to our weeks stay in this wonderful land.

Following Still Haven't Found, Bono thanked Muse, after another electric opening set, 'for coming with us on this incredible adventure.' It set him dreaming out loud about his country...and this country.

'I think the Irish and Argentine we speak too much. We drink too much.
We are religious but we argue with God.
And when we are not arguing with God we argue with the British...'
You might have the edge on us in the football, he continued, but 'In the rugby we kick your arse. We are a tiny country and you are a BIG country. Our ego is as big as your ego. We think we invented you. We believe an Irishman is one of the fathers of Argentina. Admiral Brown came from County Mayo...'

And in another unexpected twist, now the band welcomed a very special guest to the stage in Leon Gieco, the celebrated Argentine folk singer and with Larry and Adam watching on, he performed 'Solo Le Pido A Dios' (I Only Beg God) with Edge and Bono joining on guitar and the entire stadium joining on vocals.

It was worth it!
I had the lucky of go in to dates! But the last one was the best, i could not believe how close i was from U2. I was in the golden circle, and a live each moment! The best moment it was when Bono did the Miss Sarajevo´s solo, it was so good!

The Meaning of Music
Thank you very much guys, It was an amazing night, and certainly one of the best of my life. I cried, I shouted, I danced, I jumped and I felt the meaning of your beautiful and powerful songs. My favorite song was Elevation (when I lost my voice) and Sunday Bloody Sunday. An emotive moment was when eternal Leon Gieco came on stage and sang "Sólo le pido a Dios" (I only Beg God) for "Los chicos de Malvinas" (for Malvina´s boys). By the way I´m from Colombia but I lived in Buenos Aires and is a shame that my fellas couldn´t hear you live, anyway, as you said, Don´t forget us and I hope that we could see you someday in the beautiful Colombia. PD: Muse was an amazing band, I really enjoyed their music too.

I cried, I shouted, I jumped, I shaked and I really enjoyed and I felt the meaning of your beautiful and powerful songs. My favorite song was Elevation, when I lost my voice and Sunday Blody Sunday. An amazing moment was when eternal Leon Gieco came to stage and sang for "Los chicos de Malvinas (Malvina`s boys)"

Is there gonna be more?
Is there gonna be more? That´s the question that keeps coming to my mind every time I see you on stage. First time I saw you in '98 I thougth I would never see anything like this again, but you came along with Vertigo tour in 2006, you improved that time, and again I thought nothing would surpass that. And you were back to Argentina this year, I went to three shows in a row, it´s incredible that you keep perfectioning, these last shows have been better than previous, and the BEST I ever saw. Nothing is impossible for you, every time I think you reached the top and nothing will surpass this moment you show up with a new tour conception and make the impossible come true. Please keep surprising me! Again I think 360° is not going to be beaten, but deep in my heart I know you are going to blow our brains out next time. You are EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING!!!!!

Best Concert Ever...!!!
This is the second time I had traveled to Buenos Aires to see U2, still doesn't arrive to Lima, Perú. At the end of the show I thought It worth! The best track for me was In a Little While, I wait it on 2006 at River but didn't came. Intense moment when Leon Gieco performed Sólo le pido a Dios. The set list was almost perfect, a great recollection since former years until No Line on the Horizon. I wished to hear Stand Up Comedy, it is my favorite of the album but it is a reason to keep following for the next opportunity. Thanks for the passion you put it on every show! Mario

Just for me
on saturday's night I was illness, thinking about the concert of the sunday... I almost can't go, but nothing can stop the power of U2. So, with my illness and the storm over my shoulders, and my beloved sister Natalia, we fight against the thunders and went to the Estadio Único. Then one angel, Clara, cross over our way... and suddenly there I was, in the big and brand new stadium... staring at the empty place, felling all that just for me...

Just too much
Theres no words to describe such an amazing thing, the show was flawless, i think the rain gave us a special night (03/04/2001), the presence of leon gieco, my favourite track "where the streets have no name". Most memorable moments: Argentina national anthem, bono talking about Ireland and Argentina, bono and the edge shaking hands over the bridges, the crowd holding up their cell phones, solo le pido a dios, pride, where the streets have no name (the crowd), one... Víctor, Rosario, Argentina.-

2 nights awesome!
I went from outside of Argentine. In my 1st night I was in RED ZONE ONE, because without thinking I bought these tickets and I didn't knew that with them I donate to RED causes and the fight against HIV. I feel proud about it, because I'm POSITIVE with ARV drugs provided my health insurance. But anyhow! The show was amazing!, excited and awesome... Thanks U2! The 2nd night (Sunday) We were with my friend in CABECERA NORTE. Another view, another perspective and same awesome than the 1st night. I saw my 1st U2 concert in Santiago 06 but the 360º is another experience. I never hear the song "Bad", thanks for this song, thanks for your awesome put in scene. I never forget!

I have no words to explain this show. It was my first time at a concert, but I'm sure this is the best show I ever will atend. You were SOOOOO TENDER TO US, SO TENDER. Thank you a lot for this amazing and incredible show, I need to invent adjectives for this monstrosity you call "La Garra"... Keep on rocking like this forever... P.S.: Bono, we'll never forget U2, never. We promise it.
