Shining Like Stars in Toronto
Luminous final night in Canada.

This tour started in Canada, in Vancouver back in early May and last night was the final show of eight in three fine Canadian cities. 

Once again, the locals raised the roof. Here's a few of our stand-out moments - if you were there, add your own, and your photos, by following the link at the end of this story.

It's been a while but tonight it was back - and if you're an afficionado, it was what you were waiting for. What was it? That special lyrical twist at the end of With Or Without You - 'We'll shine like stars in the summer night...' It's almost four years since we heard it but tonight it joined the expanding list of lyrical snippets and sparked it's own twitter hashtag #shinelikestars.

The 'e' stage is providing a more and more unpredictable and intimate chapter in the story of this show. After local band Acrobat climbed up on Monday to perform Desire - while U2 looked on, impressed - last night we had Stephanie up on stage, on guitar for Angel of Harlem and All I Want is You. Born to it...

Plenty of famous names around tonight including actor Jared Leto and Foo Fighters, in town for their own show. 'Dave Grohl right in front of you'  was how we knew, from Beautiful Day, along with a hint of Smells Like Teen Spirit in Electric Co.

One went out to the people of Israel and Palestine and in particular another special guest. 'Nobel Peace Laureate Shimon Peres is in the house tonight. We understand President Peres that you have tried to be the voice of reason and dedicated a lot of your life... to try and bring peace in this really dangerous region.. . and we wish that you who worked so hard for that incredible Oslo Accord, that you don’t give up the two state solution... And we're going to sing this song with two ancient peoples in mind...'

On Twitter @amubalt was impressed : “Never thought I'd hear a version of One to rival the goosebumps I had at Joburg Popmart. Tonight is it. Unbelievable'

Anyone realise during The Wanderer, with Johnny Cash on the screens, that Zooropa was released 22 years ago yesterday ?

TORONTO - July 7th
Cannot put into words - how fantastic the show was last night. From a very emotional Iris, and All I Want is You to Shine Like Stars.....what a night to remember. Fantastic crowd.
It was an amazing show! I left speechless....literally! I love the way they interact with their fans. You truly get a sense of them caring about you personally! I have been a fan for over 30 years and I can still say they are my favourite. I love their music but also who they are and what they stand for! I Will Follow!
1983 again
First time I say them was 1983 Massey Hall Toronto. I have not missed a show since then!

Family affair
Taking my son, 7, to his first concert ever. We adopted him from Ethiopia six years ago, and I've explained to him U2's connection to Africa and the Jubilee campaign. We are catching both shows in Toronto. So looking forward to having him join the U2 fan family. Would love to have him meet the band or say "hi".
