First night with Kanye West opening up and for the first time on the tour, Bono arrives on stage ahead of the support act. He wants a special welcome from the U2 audience for the first of four nights with Kanye West. 'I want to introduce a truly great American voice,' he tells the St Louis audience.



Kanye performed with a DJ and a seven-piece string section - including a harp - and the U2 crowd were knocked out. He even headed out along the elipse stage to perform his Grammy-winning 'Jesus Walks' which really blew people away. Later, when U2 were on stage, Bono slipped a snatch of Jesus Walks into Beautiful Day. We've had some great support acts this year and this is quite a climax. Just three shows to go for Vertigo '05, hard to believe.
