23 Mar 201233
And, if you listen, I can't call
And, if you jump, you just might fall
And, if you shout, I'll only hear you...

Even the weather couldn't spoil the show
This was my 3rd time seeing this show (Foxboro, Meadowlands, & Moncton) and 4 or 5th show period. My greatest memory tho was watching my sister's 1st "U2 Experience" a memory I will share with her forever. Thanks and please keep Moncton on the ticket for your next tour!!

Come back soon
I loved this song, this show and the show I saw in Montreal. I couldn't believe my luck, first to be in the Red zone in Montreal and then to see the final show in Moncton. Love this band, love these shows.

wow - that was awesom
I saw the show in Minnesota and wished I could have made more shows - what a great way to end the 360 tour - U2 Rocks!

I would love it if U2...
I would love it if U2 take the 360º stage on different design, like something pos-apocalyptic with structure that survived from some kind of nuclear attack. New songs and new environment with new gas to me (a fan) and to the dirty world. I really think it's a wonderful idea.

Fantastic song
I'm really glad that this song made it to U22. Having heard it live in Berlin three times really means something to me.

Awesomeness
I grew up in Cape Breton, moved away 22 years ago, then became a U2 fan. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine they would play in the Maritimes! I attended many of the 360 tour shows. The first time I heard "Stay"....really heard it.... was in Chicago, 2009. I was moved to tears that night, and "Stay" became (for me) the highlight song of the entire tour. I drove the 1800+ mile round trip to Moncton because it meant a lot to me that they chose that city to end the tour (got to see old friends and some family too). I can't tell you how happy I am that this version was chosen to be on "U22"!!

Songs of praises
Reflecting back on 360 tour and all the tours before....watched this band grow and followed them all over the world. I just wonder sometimes if as individuals they realize how much sheer joy they bring to peoples lives?

Miami, New Orleans...
...London, Belfast and Moncton. LOL! Doesn't really scan as well as Berlin. Although I'm sure Moncton is a very nice place ;)

U22 CD
Will this version be on the CD? Hands down one of my favorite U2 songs, it would be cool if this version made the cut.

The spirit I found
I am very happy that this touching version of Stay (Faraway, So Close!) will be on U22. The sound of the acoustic guitar and Bono;s vocals created such an extraordinary intimacy that can be found in big venues very rarely. When I hear the passion in that song I can sense some melancholy that an incredible tour has ended. Maybe Bono and The Edge felt the same way when they performed on the 360 stage for the last time. I will stay with the spirit I found.

stay!!!!!
I'm looking forward!!!!!!!!!! I miss you!!!!!!!!!

Bono is best singer in the world.
Great version.

'It's just awesome …!'
I don't 'like' this. But I simply LOVE IT!!! The way Bono sings 'Stay with the spirit I found' and then 'STAAAAAYY and the night spild be enough'. It's just awesome!

I've seen U2 101 times now!! Saw them at 12 yrs old, I'm in my 40's now, how the hell did that happen? U2 means so much to me, it's hard to put into words. Every member of my family has been to multiple shows too. Wish I was front row at the Moncton show to yell out that it was my 102nd show to hear Bono say something clever like I should "get a life" Well, I have one for sure and it's filled with so many warm memeories of U2. Memories from Slane to Amsterdam, Hawaii, Canada and all over the U.S. I feel bad for people who listen to shallow top 40 or Rap's flavor of the week. I've had U2 almost my whole life, and I wouldn't want it any other way! This clip gets me choked up everytime I see it. Bono barely holds it together as well. 360 was amazing in everyway!!!

Stay Making Music
Just renewed my membership!! U2 has been such an awesome part of my life for so long now, it's hard to imagine life without them. My two sons 5 and 7 have been to a few shows each! This has always been a favorite song of mine. I can remember listening to this album over and over again as i rode buses through the Ecuadorian countryside in undergrad! For months U2 was only my companion. That part of me is still there with them.

WOW!!!
You left us but U2 stayed in our hearts... see you next time Beautiful Band...

Stay (Faraway, So Close!) in Moncton
An amazing, unforgettable night in Moncton. This song was so well done, I will never forget how I felt when this was played.

360 hasn't left town!
Amazing, touching, nice interaction with the audience, but hopefully in the CD there we'd be able to listen to the complete track. Ah, ah, ooh, ohh Edge's chorus is so melancholic!!!

Thrilling
This video is so thrilling! Thanks for share it. Love from Brazil.

Greatest Song Ever Written
I was so happy when I read long ago that this was one of Bono's favorite U2 songs. It's been my favorite song (period) basically since first hearing it. This is such a touching performance, I'll never get tired of seeing it interpreted live. Thank you, Bono. Thank you, U2! Up with the static, my friends...
soey
Stay with the spirit I found.
Still I'm tears get in my eyes, for all the great moments of this great tour - and that Moncton was really the last 360-gig. Can't wait to see you guys again, when the trucks roll into town...
