Second night in Dublin and right up there with the first. This is what you've been saying: 'this gig was out of this world'; 'loved the remix of 'Crazy', Moment of Surrender is a great closer'; 'three rows from the front barrier and Croke rocked even more than Friday night'; 'ultimate homecoming, words can not describe...'; 'My feet really really hurt - but it was worth it!'

the pit!!
Second night in the pit...my 40th show for my 40th birthday...beyond words...bono above us on the bridge and then larry on crazy tonight..a very emotional night as dublin always is for me..the importance of this band will only be felt to its fullest when they are no more..there is no one( and never has or will be) that can come close to them..breathe is a work of genius and is even better live..seeing unforgettable fire again was amazing..a slightly different drum line (as a drummer I noticed! ) Love seeing them at home..its always very special..

Hometown Gig
We travelled from NY for a hometown gig. Excellent treatmen from the locals and a great show on the pitch. It was great to see the band in all their glory, including the typical weather that brought out the Claw's umbrellas.

Friday was just magic!
I saw the shows on Friday and Saturday and enjoyed the Friday gig a bit more. It was unbelievable to see them again after 4 years. The opener Breathe was so great on Friday. On Saturday the sound wasn't that good at the beginning but became better soon. Highlights for me: Unknown, Until, Crazy, Bad. Also great that they played Unforgettable, Elevation and Vertigo. Moment of Surrender is not the best set closer but it was a magnificent show! Could only be beaten if they played FEZ. Loved the show, loved the town. Thank you Dublin. Austria loves you.

Ive finally found what im looking for
U2 is without a doubt The greatest band in the world! I keep saying it , and The Boys keep proving me right. This was the trip of a life time and im not disappointed. It was way more than I could have ever dreamed of. I had the pleasure of standing in front of Edge all night playing his beautiful guitar. Wow! I came from Las Vegas to Dublin Just to see them. Nothing will ever top this!!!! Thank You for bringing joy into the orld U2!

Best one yet...
Travelled from Glasgow to tick the 'See U2 in their backyard' box - amazing. What a weekend - 80,000 rocking to an incredible set that had everything. Highlights - Angel of Harlem, Unforgetable Fire and the way message from TUTU into Where the Streets Have No Name. Fortunate to have seen the band 4 times including West Germany 89 with BB King - thought nothing would top that......Dublin (Part II) just did !!! and Dublin...thanks for a crackn weekend !!!

IS IT REALLY OVER??
Can't believe it's really over. Completely in the depths of depression after Friday night in Croker. UNBELIEVABLE. havent seen u guys for 16 years and well, it was worth the wait. Loved the lead up to Where the streets.. - 2 hours of Spine tingling energy from the lads. WELL DONE, EXCELLENT and Welcome Home from Belfast

Sat 25th July Dublin
I wouldn't usually post a comment, but feel that I have to voice this. Bono's vocals are the best I've ever heard - in a little while just blew me away. The whole show was great with new songs sounding great and I hadn't listened to them too much beforehand. My most memorable U2 gig/moment had been (and I've been to every tour since the Joshua Tree) Zoo TV in Dublin and Cork with the closing song (U2 song) Love is Blindness - it made me love that song. The whole Zoo TV thing was amazing as something like that had never been done before. We'll probably never have that wow factor again as it's what is expected - this is not putting down the claw at all, but now I love "Moment of Surrender". Fair play lads - finishing on that song, unknown by a lot, I'm sure - I knew it a bit and now know it and love it really well (did I mention that I love it) - my brother came to gig with me at the last minute and he loved that not knowing the song at all.

Croke Park Friday Night
AMAZING NIGHT! Met up with four friends from the US to go to the concert. This was the second time for me seeing them in their home town. Every part of the concert was beyond words, especially when he sang the Irish lullaby! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Dublin Concert 2 - Pride Of Ireland!
I´ve just arrived back to Seville this morning after seeing the lads perform at Croke Park on Saturday - A brilliant, brilliant night! It made me very proud to be Irish and it won´t be 24 years again before I see them in my home country. These boys from Dublin are a bit like a fine rioja, they are getting better as they get older! I was hoping they would have played "Bad" but not to be. That means I´ll be back for more! Without doubt, these boys from Dublin are Ireland´s "Pride".

Was too young for the Zoo TV tour and only ever got to watch it on DVD. Loved the Elevation tour and Vertigo was good but this was a big U2 moment for me, fantastic set the crazy remix was unbelievable but MLK made me cry I love that simple but powerful song thanks lads

My Bucket List
For 25 years, I dreamed of seeing U2 in Dublin and they did not disappoint. I was on the pitch Friday night and in the Lower Cusack on Saturday. Being on the pitch just a few feet from the band was all I hoped it would be, but I have to admit the Saturday night set rocked the house even more! Well worth the trip from Marlborough, Connecticut, USA!!!

Thanks Guys
Great gig a a very impressive set. I couldn't believe the amount of foreign visitors at the saturday gig, good to see and it really added to the atmosphere. With the way that set is put together (spaceship and all that) I'd LOVE to see them play the "Close Encounters" spaceship theme before they walk on, that would be hilarious!!! Keep it up guys and thanks for an unforgettable night.

At Croke Park on Saturday night, it blew us away, was the most amazing concert we've ever seen and we've been to a few, including the Vertigo tour at Hampden. Atmosphere was emotional since it was the boys' hometown and it was great to see that the people of Dublin are behind their guys. Many overseas fans there also including ourselves,(Scottish), what a boost for Dublin's economy. This is a gig not to be missed if you can help it.

Amazing
Well worth queuing for 6 hours to get in the pit. Amazing show, the boys were on top form. Hello to the 2 guys from Boston and the couple from Greece who I met whilst queuing. Bring on Cardiff on 22 August!. Cheers Alan (Bristol, UK)

Unforgettable
Back home at last,not just for the boys but for me too.I`ve been following U2 since the WAR tour and yes they just keep getting better & better at what they do. The gig on Saturday was awesome!!! I always think they ca`nt get any better, but they do. I loved all the new stuff, but hearing the Unforgettable Fire just did it for me. Keep up the good work boys.

The whole weekend in Dublin was mind blowing the atmosphere in the city centre pubs was amazing and built up to a climax as the band entered the stage on Friday. The show as amazing an experience neither myself nor my wife will ever forget.

Man What A Show
U2 You've done it yet again, been at all yer shows since '87 this one tops it, you guys are on Fire. Excellant line up of songs did not stop jumping around all night. devoting your closing song 'Moment of Surrender'to Crumlin's Children's Hospital touched our hearts as our son spends a lot of time there since he was born, he will celibrate his first birthday this weekend a big party for him no doubt U2 will be heard blasting from our house this Sunday..

In a heap after saurday
Have seen U2 on every tour since the mid 80's and i am almost 40, and i nearly had to be hospitalized after Saturdays show in croker. A few of us, lifelong friends had a fantastic night, We jumped, we sang and we collapsed, we were drained of energy afterwards, in an absolute heap, but it was worth it. The band looked and sounded better than ever. the claw is really awesome and the sound was way better than on the vertigo tour. If i had the energy i would try to get a ticket for the monday night, but i would not survive that again..lol. Brilliant Brilliant show! The rest of the world is in for a treat in the coming months. go and have a great time, and do what we do in Dublin, make a day of it and then go nuts at the gig. My voice wont be back for about a week i reckon and i should hopefully feel my legs again by about wednesday. Was also great to see so many fans here from around the world, made it extra special for us locals. You are all welcome back anytime!! was really hoping to hear "Bad" on saturday but it wasnt to be, but i did hear it on the friday night in my back garden, 2 miles away in East Wall. Great sound on this tour. Thanks Lads! Loved it, and NLOTH is an outstanding album! Love always. L
