My dream came true!
I have been a U2 fan for 20 years now and this was my first concert! I live in Mexico and was not possible for me to see them before...now my dream came true, it was amazing!! I loved them! I bought my tickest back in March in the lower level seats...but when we arrived to the stadium was early so we bought tickets again for the GA floor area, it was the best decision for my first U2 concert, we were like 8 feets from the stage!

Moved
I saw the band in 1985 or something like that Tucson, AZ. I seen many bands and artist but I have always told that U2 was the best and still is. Bono voice is blessed, Edge..he's was given extra love, Larry seems to be a gentle rocker and Adam...he is solid. I don't know them and probably never will but that is the vibe I get from them. Thank you U2 to your commitment towards your calling and keep up the Good work because we all know that soon the harvest will come. God bless you guys!!!

So happy
Had a really great time in PHX. I'm so glad that the band played "The Unforgettable Fire", and "Ultraviolet" was beautiful. Thanks for adding a little "Dirty Old Town"!

Tucson Rocked!
My daughter and I went to the Phoenix show. I was elated, and my daughter and I had red zone entrance. The Black Eyed Peas motivated the crowd and the energy and show was incredible. After their set, there was a break and Major Tom played and smoke began to rise. It was amazing to see U2 take the stage. Bono walked twice by us, and it was an event to be remembered forever. My daughter is 17, and it was a profound experience for her as she found a new respect for them as passionate artists. I even found myself watery eyed with some of my favorite songs, watching them performed live. The concert was also attended by Muhammed Ali, which Bono announced. He also announced all of his bandmates and himself as though he was announcing contenders for a boxing match. It was amazing, beautiful, and captivating. I only wish you could submit pictures through the U2 app for BlackBerry. I also have video that just made it even more special. Magnificent is the only way to describe it. It was an evening neither one of us will ever forget, a perfect mother and daughter event, and a few weeks before my daughter turns 18. I had so many problems getting there, but all was forgotten with the wonderful evening and excitement.

First U2 Concert for this old lady :)
....second for my husband, first for me. Ok, so I'm not that old (33), but shame on me for not seeing them until now! Great experience. Absolutely adored the addition of Dirty Old Town onto the end of I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. Some people around us didn't have a clue what was going on, and there I was singing along....I kissed my girl.....by the factory wall.....dirty old town....dirty old town. Loved it! Cheers.

LUV U2
AWESOME!!!!!! Need I say more. U2 you always out do yourselves. However, this was by far the best tour so far. Yes, I wish U2 could have gone on playing for hours because so many amazing songs couldn't be added to the playlist. I am just hoping U2 adds another North American leg to the tour so I can catch them again.

Great Show...
Not! I would say less than great but still a good show. This was a concert to please the masses...not the REAL fans. BEP to open?...not my first choice but they were entertaining at the least. The sound was OK but definitely not great. U2 were WAY BETTER the last time around at Jobing.com Arena - sounded FANTASTIC in there and were able to show their true musical abilities. Wrong venue for sure, they should have done it at Sun Devil Stadium... I will say the video screen and stage set up were awesome! The stage was almost exactly like the last tour only everything was about 10X bigger. Too bad Tuesday night they completely ignored their first 2 albums and only played one song from "War". Would have really capped the night off great if they had done "40" to close the show. (BTW - most fans who showed up probably have never heard of "40"!) Nice lights, video board and good showmanship but not a lot more to take away from the show...Amusement for a few hours but not much else. If you were there for the special effects and a "show" versus a "concert" I would think you were probably highly entertained. I think I will take a pass on any future concerts at the Univ of Phx Stadium.

Killer show
The stage was out of control great view from any seat, the song list was great but wished they did more older stuff. I drink beer but i think they should not sell beer at concerts too many drunks, mabey because the guy behind me dropped his beer on me then 1/2 hour later his girl dropped her beer as well. But the show was great!!! Nice job U-2

Sweet 16
Tuesday was my 16th time seeing this amazing band! All in Phoenix. We were on Edge's side of the stage.(tradition) Seemed far away compared to previous concerts. PLEASE come back on an arena, or even smaller venue tour!!! On my bucket list, be in the inner circle red zone(have been on the floor before) see them in Ireland, and meet the band! Someday...Wish I was going to Vegas, or LA. See you again soon! Bono, we could never, never "forget about you!" Please give us another chance to show you guys how good the Phoenix fans can be!!!!

MAGICAL-SPIRITUAL
Drove from the Red Rocks of Sedona to the flatlands of Phoenix for my 5th U2 experience. So cliche, but The Band is like fine wine...better with the passing years. My lady Cari's son (26 yrs.) passed away 3 mos. ago & this experience will help her on her healing path...our tears flowed like diamonds during Moment of Surrender. Thank you Gentlemen; you touch the lives of people in ways you may find difficult to imagine. At 62 yrs. old, I hope you return sooner next time...would like my body to be around to see you again & if not, my spirit will be front row!

Incredible
This was my first U2 show...it was simply incredible. I loved it. We were right up next to the stage in the yellow zone, which meant we were there since early in the day, and loved every second of it. Bono was spectacular. I just can't wait for next time! Bono if you're reading this, I was the guy holding up the Peruvian flag!
HospiceChaplain - 22 October, 2009
2 shows per state/city
spiritual and powerful, even with poor sound more intimacy.......consider playing 2 shows/week in fewer cities in smaller venues sound issues took away from event for BEP as well what happened to the amnesty international booth? --let fans get personally involved after you motivate them! prayer for Burmese woman awesome! amazing grace into streets the best!

Phoenix rises.
I have to say, the Phoenix show was particularly good. Bono's voice was really strong and beautiful. That remix of "Crazy Tonight" is definitely a highlight.

Edge and Bono
Magic.

WOW! Is all I can say!
U2...you are simply AMAZING and Inspirational! I have a been a huge U2 fan for as long as I can remember and this concert took the cake! It was the most amazing, fascinating concert I have ever attended...and I have attended U2 concerts since 1993 Zoo TV Tour. You always amaze me but this concert truly left me speechless and brought tears to my eyes. I have to tell whoever has missed out on this tour that this is a MUST SEE CONCERT!! It was a perfect combination of the old classics and the new hits. I love and respect U2...especially after my night with them in Phoenix. Black Eyed Peas...you rocked as well! What a fantastic combo! Way to go U2 and Black Eyed Peas! Such Amazing Talent!
VeronicaRock - 21 October, 2009
I loved it!
I've been looking forward to going to this concert for six months. Actually, scratch that. I've been waiting since I was five years old! There was such an amazing connection between band, Spaceship, and audience. I'll remember it forever.

U2 Rocked the House
This was my first U2 concert that I have ever been to. Don't know why I've waited this long. Bono was great. I loved it and had a blast. The only bad thing was that we waited after the show to try to get some T-shirts and they were all sold out. :( Some parts of the concert I had a tear in my eye for the way Bono performed. I just wish I would of know that camera's were aloud in. I'm kicking myself for not bringing mine. If anyone would like to send me some pictures let me know and I'll give you my email address. LOVE YOU BONO. The BEP also did a wonderful job. They got the house rocking while we waited for U2 to come on stage.

Phoenix Show

Honest Review from a True Fan
It's always great to see U2 live,(I've seen them live every tour since the Joshua Tree) but this time was not as good as all the other times. I think U2 needs to start downsizing their shows and let their talent create the magic we all love. The stage was amazing but it overpowered the band, and the sound was awful; it may have been the venue that created an annoying echo that worked against the Edge's echoing riffs. Prices were too high for choice sections which were notably empty for the most part. I enjoyed the show but this was not one of their great shows that I have come to expect. I hope the band changes things up next year, and if they come back they may consider playing smaller venues to reconnect with the audience. Sorry guys...just saying it like it is.

Amazing!
There are no words...it was just incredible! I had tickets to their April 2006 concert in Yokohama but it was rescheduled, we moved back to the States, and I subsequently missed the rescheduled event...it's been over three years but I finally got to see them and I couldn't have asked for a better concert. It was the perfect mix of songs and of course the performance itself was just SOOOO AMAZING!!!
abqfan - 21 October, 2009
Amazing!
What an amazing show! We drove from Albuquerque to see them. U2 is such an inspiration to so many! The songs were perfect, the stage was phenomenal...what a perfect night! LOVE THEM! BEPs were an awesome opener! Couldn't have asked for a better show! Thank you U2!

sweet U2
I have been wanting to see U2 since I was a little girl. You guys sang and played as if your lives depended on it. I cannot imagine how exhausting it is to give and give on tour. I hope you felt the energy I was bouncing back to you! Our section was really into the whole show- I watched a man in his late 60's have the time of his life! I am 31, i left my 3kids and drove 8 hours by myself to see you!! It was worth every mile. I came in with a smile and left with an even bigger one. I will see you again for sure. U2 makes me feel happy and high on life. My ONLY complaint is that I was not on the floor, my seats were great but it felt like i could not get close enough. Thanks for making Oct.20th one of the best nights of my life, no doubt. Thanks for all you do to make the world a better place- it matters, we appreciate your time and energy in all the causes you support. ~ Namaste Adam, Edge, Larry and BONO!! you guys killed it.

Speechless
1st ever U2 concert and it will not be my last. It was an experience, not just a show. Great energy, music and Bono sung his heart out! It was a beautiful setting inside the stadium w/ the roof open. Great messages told to crowd. Emotions were invoked in me that I didn’t know I had. If you ever get the chance to see U2, DO IT! They do music the way it should be done. No one does it better than U2!
bonohot - 21 October, 2009
night of my life
U2 rules the universe! Flew in from NYC for the Phoenix show.Bono was on fire! The Edge and Adam tight and solid on the guitars.Larry putting it all together on the drums. And of course BONO with his spectacular voice,stage presence and endless sex appeal.Keep jumping into that mike.! Had fantastic seats thanks to this website/membership.The sound was superb.The stage and special effects were stunning and surreal.COME BACK TO THE USA IN 2010....LUV U GUYS..
qguy - 21 October, 2009
Outstanding!
Loved the show! The crowd on the floor looked like they were having a better time than all the drunk posers in the pricey seats -- fancy that! Once a few feedback issues were resolved in the first few songs, the band kept gaining momentum and were just sizzling by "Streets". I keep reading snarky reviews by people on other blogs -- too big, not intimate enough, the Suu Kyi masks are too much, what's with the laser jacket -- but I still saw a huge group of people who get it amidst the many who didn't. I don't want to sound arrogant, but it's really hard to explain simply what makes U2 great. I'll just say they remain a unique blend of passion, charisma, talent, and showmanship, and every mile I've traveled to see them in Dallas and Phoenix and every penny spent was worth it.

28 years w/ U2
I can honestly say, in my 28 years of seeing this band live that last night's stage/show was INCREDIBLE ! Breathtaking could be used as well. I was blown away from the minute I got there and saw it in the light (thank god i missed BEP, bad choice of an opening band), to the first darkened view of the spectacle. I find it amazing, as Bono said, that they can keep the intimacy in a huge stadium. I still get shivers up my spine at the beginning of "Beautiful Day" and to this day "Where The Streets Have No Name" wells tears up in my eyes. I only wish that I could go back in time and be that little boy he brought on stage.. To have that a memory for a lifetime would be harmonious to seeing heaven. I have been through good and bad in my life, but nothing can take me to a good place like U2, especially seeing them live. THANK YOU Bono, Edge, Larry and Adam for making the last 28 years amazing...
