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'.

07-21-2001 : The best concert of my life
Naples 1993, Reggio Emilia 1997, Turin 2001: three great moments. If Naples was the candle, Turin was the explosion of all emotions... Thanks for those hours, for words remembering Carlo Giuliani, for the feeling of that "Sunday bloody Sunday, just to be "Out of Control"... Unforgettable!! It was the best concert of my life. Thank you! Unfortunately, I'll not be with again: any ticket available.
Why Not sing "two shots of happy one shot of sad"? I LOVE IT A LOT
