Out Of Control in Turin

Night Two in Italy and here’s what went down.

Seven highlights from the band's second night in Turin. If you were at the show add your own photos and reviews here.

Introducing the band members to the people of Italy after an incendiary version of 'Out Of Control'. 
'On Bass, all the way from Ard na Mara - Adam Clayton
On drums, from Rosemount Avenue, Larry Mullen Jr
On guitar, all the way from St Margaret’s Park - The Edge
my brothers
miei fratelli.'

We don't mention 'Invisible' enough. What a song. Just as great in Europe as in North America.
'Invisible really is one of the highlights of the show. It's bringing tears to my eyes just to think how powerful it is.' @madfl3a
'Gotta love that the high point of concert, in which the band hide, is a song called "Invisible," which was also a hidden track!' @timneufeld

Never been a version of 'Desire' like this one. Elena from Naples jumped up on stage to boogie her way through Mysterious Ways but the Meerkat wasn’t behaving so Elena wasn’t needed to broadcast Desire around the world. Instead Bono started looking for additional players. First a drummer. Then another drummer. Then a guitarist. Then another guitarist… who turned out to be a singer.. and a very fine one. And then this spontaneous seven-piece - or was it eight? made their live debut. And it was pretty near genius...
'Lover, I'm off the streets
I'm gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar, on fire

On the eve of the eighth anniversary of the death of Luciano Pavarotti, 'Every Breaking Wave' is dedicated to his wife Nicoletta and their daughter Alice - with a rendition in Italian of 'Torna A Surriento'. There’s another date marked in 'Angel of Harlem', which goes out to Van Morrison, in the week of his 70th birthday.

Can't not mention the new chapter in the show, 'October' through 'Streets/Pride',  which has arrived for Europe. Everyone talking about it.

'Feels October is the new heart of the show... the beginning of it at least. The open heart.. Strap in.'  @U2Community

'Bullet brings the anger. Zooropa brings the despair. Streets brings the hope. Pride brings the "we can do this".' @k_now_waite

'Re: Zooropa/Streets, not sure last time I felt this moved by live #U2. One Tree Hill in Auckland '06 probably.' @u2gigs

'Zooropa like this is just so haunting & absolutely perfect. What do YOU want?' @zaharadessert

'The new segue from Zooropa -> Streets has to be the most beautiful thing I've heard. Shimmer on Edge, shimmer on!' @hayitscarolina

'Most powerful "heart of darkness" portion of a U2 tour yet. Enormity of humanitarian crisis is staggering.' @atu2comSherry

'Dream of the world you want to live in. Emotion, anger, sadness. Hope.' @U2start

For ‘Streets’ we had 'AmplyRed' - an amazing flash mob set up by Italian fan site See our photos here  

Special surprise at the end of the night as Italian rock legend Zuccherro joins the band on stage for 'Still Haven't Found'.

It was 8th U2'S concert in my life but maybe the best ( with the first at Lyon in 1992). What a night, what a show, what a band!

Great experience and lot of fun with my beloved rock band. Also took a great shot of Until the end of the world, really close to Bono and Edge. Won't ever forget that night. See you soon in Dublin!

I you ask anybody what does it mean Happiness & Love that was U2 on stage and people dancing all around.It was a night of giving and sharing love with everybody, it was a night of no borders and no thinking. I want to thank all the crew we met during our luckily backstage tour that works so invisibly hard to give the real dimension of this avant-guard show. U2 - Me too !

noi <3
Thank you, guys
Was in Turin for my 4th U2 concert (Vertigo and 360° the first three) and even if I had already looked at the shows on the net, it was over my imagination. In one previous post, after looking at what happened during the first leg, I was wondering about what kind of show I would see, what songs I would hear (the most beatiful song I have heard.....) and who was going to play the show... Now I'm satisfied; the show was amazing, finally I had Zooropa (it was a dream I was dreaming and I dreamed out loud, had a new enlarged U2 for Desire and for Still. I could ask for more? Yes I missed One; have to seqrch on the net for a good download of first Turin night. Time to start the search...THANK YOU AGAIN GUYS FOR THE WONDERFUL NIGHT, I had my part of Innocence and now looking forward for a lot of Experience. Have we to wait long for this?

No, it was not a dream

Could not get to Turin but decided to follow it through via the social stream. It was worth it and certainly cos of the version of Desire. It looked like planned it was so good, those drummers were stunning - a joy to see it in the real time. Thank you and pretty soon we'll get there... Stockholm!
