So Amazing !!!
Incredibly dreamed, epic, full of passion. It reaches my soul, there in the deepest. The decades pass and U2 is still U2, the best band in the universe.

Simply thank you
I have followed you all since the mid 80’s. I remember discussions with my friends about who was the best bad live. I always championed your corner....even though I had actually never seen you live. Your songs were the soundtrack to my youth. My youth? My life. And finally, in 2017, in your homeland, at Croke Park...I saw you live. I saw you perform The Joshua Tree. And at that moment, now aged 49, I was 18 again. And I was thrilled. And my heart pounded. And I loved each and every one of you guys for giving me back those precious moments I hope to see you again... very soon. To get those magical feelings back again. But until then, I just want to say THANK YOU. With big love to you all. Nicky xxxx

Who's.
That was a great show, the performance of Love is Bigger than... at the end just had me in tears remembering so much of the journey. Brilliant.

Wonderful
Great show. The orchestrations and choir worked really well. Does anyone know how many tracks they actually played? All I want is you was cut from the airing. Would love the full show as a fan club gift?

Thanks for this Christmas gift, U2!
This broadcast brought me to a place of great HOPE as the season and year comes to ends as well as tears and smiles throughout! I feel like a pool of melted butter on the floor after viewing it today! Bravo, U2 and everyone involved in the making of U2 At The BBC!

Reinvent
I've been a fan for 30 years. At the end of the rattle and hum tour the band said they needed to go away and reinvent themselves. They did that in spectacular fashion. I think they need to do that again! So generic :( very disappointed. Edge is pretty ageless though!

Abbey road BBC...
Fantastic to hear old and new favourites played with an orchestra...who would've thought....it added so much more to already great music that U2 do so brilliantly...and Bono's vocals holding up against them well...loving the choir in some songs ...so lovely to hear vocals from both melding so well..
