October 19, 2018 – Manchester
Location: Rail Corner, Main Stage, Edge Side
Finally making my way over the pond to catch up with the Experience and Innocence Tour, I was really happy to see several of my U2 friends who I haven’t seen for a few months, or years for that matter. I was able to bring in my Sony A7RIII with the Sony Zeiss 55mm into the venue and get some good pictures. The most enthralling songs for me were Zoo Station – what an abrupt and thrilling transition between Bono’s intro speech and Edge’s icy guitars. I also loved the new rendition of New Year’s Day – electronica version – and using the EU/Brexit context to help reframe this song.
