Comments: Bono references the fact that at one point, Minneapolis was set to be the final show of the 360° tour, and declares that tonight is the start of the ‘end of tour party’. Somali pop star K’naan, whom Bono spoke with before the show about the famine in Somalia, joins the band on stage to sing Stand By Me for the people suffering in Somalia. Bono dedicates Stuck In A Moment to Amy Winehouse, who died earlier in the day. It rains throughout the show, prompting Bono to sing rain-related snippets at almost every opportunity (u2tours.com).
