The band played in Toronto tonight, the first of 2 shows, and set beneath the Toronto Tower, the stage looked more spaceship like than ever. Show was out of this world too.
'We've got some old songs, some new songs, We got songs we can barely play... We got a space ship'.
What did we make a note of ? The roof of the Rogers Stadium (home to the Toronto Blue Jays) was off, which is a bit of a rarity - it came off for Bruce Springsteen too - and that made for some great acoustics tonight. The end of Beautiful Day found Bono singing 'Alison' by the one and only Elvis Costello, who was here watching the show. The band paid tribute to their hosts ('Our first night on the majestic half continent that you call a country - Canada.')... which went down relatively well. And we learned that 'the effortlessly stylish Adam Clayton' is ' the only man in U2 who uses face cream.'
