April 13, 2011 – São Paulo
Seats: General Admission – Front Row Centre
The U2 show was out of this world. Again, I loved Even Better Than The Real Thing. Another treat was seeing Brazilian samba singer Seu Jorge perform Kraftwerk’s The Model with the band. Zooropa was something else to witness up front. The screen extends so low that it covers half the band. With its lights off, it was a neat added effect to the song. I loved it. After, Jana got up on stage to recite some of the lyrics of Beautiful Day in Portuguese with Bono. They have a unique friendship, and we were all happy for her to have this special moment – her last show in her home country in Brazil. She’ll miss most of the North American tour, but we’ll see her again in Moncton. It was touching to hear Bono dedicate Moment of Surrender to the children who were killed in a school shooting in Rio. At the end of the show, we left satisfied that there was realy nothing else that could have made the last show experience better. What a way to end South America. Next up, North America!
