'All Of Us Are Better Than Any Of Us.'

23 Oct 2023

'All Of Us Are Better Than Any Of Us.'

Eleventh show at Sphere and the longest to date, with 23 songs. During the second act, the band played five songs from Rattle and Hum: 'All I Want Is You', 'Desire', 'When Love Comes To Town', 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For', and 'Love Rescue Me'.

There were several song snippets, including Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You', Primal Scream's 'Movin' On Up', 'Two Tribes' by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Lou Reed's 'Take A Walk On The Wild Side', and the Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and 'Blackbird', which closed out the  show.

What Bono Said

Before All I Want Is You: ''I've been fascinated by faith-versus-luck all my life...'I know the band are really lucky, but I'd like to think that we also have a love that transcends that, and a love of each other, and a love of our audience'.

About The Edge: 'On my right, the only person in the world who doesn't think he's the most influential guitar player of the last 40 years.'

Introducing I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, a song inspired by the poet Allen Ginsburg and the psalms of David: 'I hope you know that this band loves this country…”All of us are better than any of us” —  that's the message of America.'

'This might be one of trippiest concerts I've ever been to. I'm in complete wonder of the Sphere. #U2 #VegasSphere' — @rachelroyalkc on X

'I can't explain the show. Videos just can't capture the scale, and the sound. The sound wraps all around you, it's not like any other venue I've ever been to…' — @itsgillen on Instagram

'The people on either side of me tonight at the Sphere don't live here in the US & came from overseas to see this show. No words to express how much I love this. #U2UVSPHERE' — @thescreendoor on X

'Yes, I have indeed died and gone to U2 heaven. This entire weekend has been amazing — the Sphere, the graphics, the U2 music and fans in vintage tees everywhere. I'm so grateful to have had this fan experience with some of my oldest and dearest friends in the world. Unforgettable (fire)'  — @gazellejava on Instagram
