Spanish Eyes in Barcelona

10 Oct 2015

'Wey, hey, baby hang on
Wey, hey, baby hang on
Hang to your heartbeat, tight as a drum
Hang on to your love, see it shines like a song
Wey. hey, hey, baby hang on
Our love shines like rain
In those spanish eyes..'

What a show to finish up in Barcelona tonight.  

In blue feather boa and cowboy hat, took a moment to realise that that was Javier Bardem on stage, grooving through Mysterious Ways - he's got some moves.

And then, in her platinum blonde bunny girl wig, it was the turn of Penelope Cruz... to try and get Javier off stage. 

He wouldn't leave until he'd had his photo taken with everyone in the band and when he was finally escorted away, Penelope stayed to shoot 'Desire' live on Meerkat worldwide.

Great moment with a great couple of Spanish actors and activists and then - it had to be - 'Spanish Eyes'. 

'WEY HEY HEY IT'S SPANISH EYES!,' tweeted @U2gigs, which always has the facts. 'First performance since 26 Sept 2010, only 4th perf since 1987!' (@u2gigs) 

A song that made its live debut in Madrid in 1987, this was only the fourth time it's been played in all the years since.

We'll have more news on the show later but if you were there tonight, add your own comments and post your photos here.
