Athens, GR (Olympic Stadium)

Olympic Stadiumwith Snow Patrol
Show Report


This is the stadium where the 2004 Olympic Games were held and if the times have changed since those heady days for this country, the venue was packed to the rafters tonight, with the Greek audience generating as much noise as any on the tour to date.

Bono acknowledge that there have been tough financial times here lately before adding, 'Greece is a great country because of the Greeks... Ireland is a great country because of the Irish..'

The place was illuminated like fireworks night during One, not just with phones held high but an ocean of glow-sticks. Looked like someone even set off a flare in the inner circle. The excitement was tangible.

'Incredible people,' announced Bono at the end of a breathtaking performance of 'Streets. 'Incredible place'

Hold Me Thrill Me is back in tonight and by the time we get to With Or Without You, the audience have decided they can sing the song on their own. 'Wow!' exclaims Bono.' We won't forget this'

If you were there, sounds like it was a night that you won't forget either. Add in your own review and upload your photos below. Tell us what moment tonight you will never surrender, what you found in Athens that you never knew you were looking for.

2 hours of happyness
I'm 42 years old and I didn't make it to 1997 concert in Thessaloniki. After 13 years the momment to see U2 live came true, an 25 years of pure perfect rock (listening to their music from 1985) was spread in this magic night. THANK YOU !!!!!! Best track : ONE !!

ALWAYS FEEL AS MUCH AS A MAN CAN!
Nothing more, nothing less. You are an emotional torture for us? Maybe. An explosion of emotions maybe? The second time we saw U, the first time I felt connected with U. HANDS UP! LOUDER! U enjoyed really? As We Did? I 'm not sure. But for sure, U spoke into OUR soul for another time, and this time was for REAL/LIVE! Athina's LIVE. Not Slane Castle, Not Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Not Barcelona, Not Amsterdam, not Istanbul, not Moscow, Athina-Mediteranean! We didn't deserve it? It 's unbelievable in what degree you spoke into our souls... Dangerous? Some times without knowing your lyrics (its translation into greek), only with the melody, or with some strayed words... Sometimes whispering, sometimes dancing, sometimes braying, sometimes loughing happy, sometimes crying in misery! BUT ALWAYS FEEL AS MUCH AS A MAN CAN!!! ThaNk YoU! CU!

MAGNIFICENT!!!
Thank you so much for a great show!!! Fractured my leg only one month before the show, but I came cause I wouldnt miss it. I was dancing on my left foot and singing!!! I was expecting to see you for a very long time. Wish I was closer to the stage. Best song "Still haven't found what I am looking for" really cried. Waiting for your next show here soon, and hope to see you stay in our country more.

Thank you
I am 41, fan since 1984, when i got the Unforgettable Fire on tape, cause we did not have a turntable at home. 27 years expecting to listen to Pride LIVE, became a fact last Friday. Thank you for the tears of joy, thank you for the unbelievable memories, thank you for what its worth, and that is the Fire which will lighten our soul and mind forever. Thank you lads.

THANKS FOR GIVING US ALL YOU’VE GOT…
How many words should I use to describe the show? What word fits best?? Extraordinary? Magnificent? Amazing?...Noooo....Of course not...The show was just UNBELIEVABLE, the performance was just AWESOME. My best track, without doubt, was '' With or without you''. It brought me strangeness feeling..fast heart beat and butterflies in my stomach..I almost FELT LIKE MAKING LOVE... Thank you for your support about our hard financial times and for all that you are offering to the world..emotions and goods! Athens will remember you beyond the confines of forever...... I will remember you as my guide to the lovers lane...lovers of YOUR rock.

A night to remember
38 years old, listening you from 1985, not being in Thessaloniki in '97, last year I gave up my hopes for your coming back in Greece! And I came to Amsterdam to see you. That was MY first and unforgettable moment, when I saw you coming in... You know, I have connected your songs with my hole life, 25 years ago, trying to deal with my big teenage problems! Together with my best friend, crying while listening "One" or finding hope and courage to fight for my existence every time I listened to "Sunday bloody Sunday" (I was making my own revolution)!! But, the night in Athinaaa, was something else! I couldn't believe the give-and-take game of the energy that was in the air!! Like after our first date, that's how I feel now, 3 days after! You were MAGNIFICENT!! Anyway, I want to tell you guys that you 'll stay in people's minds and hearts and souls for a thousand years, cause you speak through them and for them with your songs!Thank you... P.S. I dedicate "sometimes you can't make it on your own" to my father who, when he was alive he disappeared out of my life, but now that he's gone since 1998, lives inside me, because of this song! P.S. 2: Hey, Bono, do you know that you have the same name with my dog?

WE WILL FOLLOW!!!
Its been an amazing night . I was a teenager in 1997 in Thessaloniki , a very emotional concert that one. 13 years later and the emotions that U2 brought up are still the same. Sometimes its not about the effects , the music , the lights and the big stadiums. Its just about emotion and Bono and his friends manage to make everyone feel that emotion. Walk away and we will follow !!!!! Ireland belongs in the Aegean sea , next to the Greek islands. So far but yet so close !! Miss you already!
