Show Report


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.

No Words
No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! So beautiful. So beautiful I can thank you enough for this 3 amazing day that I just lived at the U2 shows I promise that I will not forget you. But you promise me, that you will be back at least 1 more time to Argentina

THANKS!!!!!
I can't say in words what I felt yesterday! Just to begin with, when I got into the inner circle, I wanted to cry of happiness. The same happened, when you were on stage singing those beautiful songs you wrote and sing. I also felt that all of you were enjoying the concert, and that Bono didn't want the concert to finish as people love and gratitude were too much to handle. I won't forget you!

Blessings are not just for the ones who
The talented Leon Gieco sang: "Solo le pido a Dios" side by side with Bono in U2's last show in Buenos Aires. May I slightly adapt those lyrics to my personal request: "I only ask of God that U2 won't forget to come to South America in their next tours". Your music raises our souls, dear Irish friends. You mean rythm, memories, heart and soul to so many people, here at the southernmost country of the world!, the one that you find so alike to Ireland. Come back home soon!!! THANKS FOR "BAD"!!! What an incredible farewel gift! As Gustavo Cerati would say: "GRACIAS TOTALES!!!"

until the end of the world
I am 43 from Buenos Aires and I was lucky to see ZOOTV in Wembley in 1993 (their best show for me) and all of the shows from then on but u2 is like the good wine, it tastes better with time and Bono is like Carlos Gardel, every day he sings better!! thanks for two (for me) wonderful unforgetable nights (one at red zone). I feel that every song is tied to a personal memory to comes alive during the show . be back soon!! son lo mas!! pd: mozart before the show, excellent idea!!
