Wide Awake in London
Final night at the O2 closes with 'Bad' and '40. 'If you twist and turn away...'

'If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again.
If I could, you know I would 
If I could
I would
Let it go...'

No finer way to close a run of six great nights at the O2 in London than with 'Bad' and '40'.  Opened with 'The Miracle' and went straight into 'Gloria', it was, said Bono, 'Great to be the house band here over the last ten days, we don't want it to be the last night...' 

'A gig with GLORIA is perfection-bound! In Te Domine, Exultate!' (@MariangelaVcc)

'OMG A Killer Slide solo from THE EDGE!!! It must be GLORIA !' (@KevinS2U)

With October now firmly established in the European set, it's not often you get two songs from the band's second album in the show... but there was more. On the e-stage we had a champagne-drenched performance of 'Party Girl' and to top it all, as Bono sang in Beautiful Day, 'Steve Lillywhite right in front of you.'

According to @U2gigs, Party Girl's appearance was it's 190th, soon to become the first b-side to top 200 live performances - and it was followed with Edge and Bono performing 'Every Breaking Wave', one of seven songs from the latest album, an ever present on the tour to date and as good a bet as any to hit the 200-mark sooner than most. Special mention to Declan Gaffney - 'DeckChair' - for bringing this song into being - and what a song.

'Every Breaking Wave and October, with just Edge&Bono on stage... Most intimate moment at a rock show ever?' (@U2start)

If you were at the show tonight tell us what it was like - and add your photos below.

Two hearts beat as one - Me (44) and my
What a night to remember - we came from Poland on trip to London - due to fog - airports were closed the days before so instead 3 hours flight we spend 2 days on constant rebooking :) but at the end we have reached O2 turned into U2 Party Girl and Bad - great, marvelous , love. Great view from seating rows (we were standing all the time and singing all the songs) What can I add - great show , wonderful night , cannot wait for next tour. ..... and the guy at tube station playing ONE and all people singing How long How long ..... this leaves a mark in the brain forever ..... and people smiling to each other ..... and everyone so happy ... sharing the same feelings for music

U2 - Monday night 2nd November 2015 - Ka
Brilliant concert myself and my partner were right by 2nd stage 1st row seating - I have a brilliant video if Kathy reads this but I'm sure others have to of her being pulled out of the crowd by Bono. Anyone know where or how I can upload this as it's on my camera not phone. Altogether outstanding performance from U2

Young Aussie Can't Wait!
My son and I saw your concert in Chicago (29 June) - it was amazing! Since I have purchased him flights to attend this concert in London. The London concert will be his 9th U2 concert, the 4th outside of Australia, I unfortunately cannot go. He has been raised a U2 fan, his name is Jesse Saunders and he will be sitting directly in front of the stage in the stands. He has a request if possible please! Miracle Drug, October or New Years Day. You guys have been amazing over your career and are still amazing. Thank you for your music etc! Please visit us in Australia soon! :)
