Far Away So Close in Gothenburg

1 Aug 200912
Electrical Storm, Stay and New Years Day are in the set for the second night in Gothenburg - a bit special as each of them have hardly been played before on the tour.
Beautiful night of white flags again, these Swedish fans really know how to make a rock'n'roll show into a theatre. (Interesting aside: due to the low end of the Ullevi Stadium, tonight's show (as you can see from out photo above) was enjoyed by about 2000 people outside the venue - people cooking burgers and selling beers. a street party on the freeway!)
Inside or outside the venue, what were your favourite moments ? Add them below, here's the set-list to remind you of another special night in Sweden.

Ultraviolet
was the climax to this show - incredible! Would have loved to hear more from the JT era though. And there's something 'less punchy' about the sound compared to the proscenium stage though. Please play Bad and Running at Wembley!

Flying high under a blood-red sky
Thanks for two greats shows in Gothenburg. Loved the little bit of "She´s a mystery to me" in the end of "One" on Friday, and that they actually played "New Years day" on Saturday AWESOME!!!

The show on saturday was really great the U2 show I have ever seen. But the show on friday was not good. What happened on friday?? But the saturday show in Gothenburg was magic. But no Bad in Gothenbrg.. Bi dissapointment.

Dream come true
Ever since I was 21 (I'm 29 now), I only wanted 2 things in life and one was to be at a U2 concert. It finally happened! Flew all the way from Belgium and it was amazing! Bono said: "Thank you for helping us build this dream". Well: I'd like to say: "Thank you for making my dream come true! Can't wait to see you in London!
