U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere #29

'Elvis Megachurch…'

'What is this strange orb in which science meets art in search of a good time in Las Vegas on a Friday night? It's an Elvis megachurch. Later it's a cathedral to the natural world. The supernatural world is with us. Yeah. We're at the Sphere and we're feelin' pretty good about it, how about you?...Spirit in the house!'

Show twenty nine of forty at the Sphere and  the return of three songs from 'Rattle and Hum' — 'Desire', 'Angel of Harlem', and 'Love Rescue Me'. Before the last, Bono sang a few lines from a song he co-wrote with longtime pal Simon Carmody, 'Drinkin' In The Day', that the late Irish folksinger Ronnie Drew recorded for his 1995 album, 'Dirty Rotten Shame'.

What Bono Said

Before One: 'There's a huge, hungry darkness out there in the world. Tonight, I'm told, is Candlemas…  There's a light that shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot put it out. Anyone got a light?'

Before Love Rescue me: 'The next song is like a whisper that's also a scream… 'It's a song we recorded and wrote with Bob Dylan way back when. Now feels very present tense, feels like a prayer for the moment we're in. If you're not the praying kind, I suggest you just close your eyes and think of someone or a situation so desperate that you've almost given up. Because, well, that's' the moment where your thoughts, your prayers for the powerless are almost as powerful as your actions.'

On The Socials

'Not the first to say it and won't be the last but what a special and sublime experience to see U2 at the @SphereVegas. So many of us grew up on their music. Such a transformational setting for an iconic band.'— @VinGuptaMD

'Talkative mood, cathedral speech & just like that 'The supernatural word is with us tonight.' - They always are & I love that he says this onstage so naturally. #U2 #U2SPHERE' — @HerzensSonne22 on X

'Wouldn't it be awesome for the last #u2uvsphere show, someone (Ali) opens the door? LOL

Throw your arms around the world!' — neasa_vyu2 

'I have to say that Vertigo bassline is duuuuuurrrrty (it's the best attempt I can do at typing "dirty" in a Dublin accent)' —AvANiceDay

'I love "Drinkin' in the Day" - nice to hear it done by Bono. If only brief...' —AJ2

This was my 2nd show. From start to finish, I was blown away by the graphics, the music, and crowd. The atmosphere was one of positivity and love.

A special night... so intense. I traveled 9440 kilometers to be a part of such a powerful concert. The band played in a great mood... the songs had such power and a beautiful clean sound. I will never forget. A great evening with my great friend. Our second joint U2 concert /the first was in Prague 1997/.
Been Too Long
Lucky enough to go the Sphere on 2/3. Hadnt seen U2 since Soldier Field, (book event in chicago doesnt count). The band and the Sphere definitely did not disappoint. Amazing show from start to finish, the sphere is out of this world what it can do from a visual perspective for sure, but it didnt take away from the concert/music at all !!!!! Just worried how long it will be until I see my favorite band again :-( Larry you were missed of course.
Bob Hewson would be proud!!
Another amazing show at The Sphere! However, they added another song that Bono knocked out of the park! A fantastic version of “When Love Comes to Town” ! Bono, Yes, it was a proper song and your Da would be proud! Peggy
Show #3 @ Sphere
I’m extremely fortunate and happy that I was able to see this show THREE times, each from a different vantage point. Each show was amazing and mind-blowing. I can’t wait to see U2 perform again, hopefully in the not-too-distant future! ♥️
