Comments: Before the show, crew are spotted busily trying to fix part of the video screen, and it reportedly has problems during the show, too. There are numerous politicians and heads of state at the show. Bono namechecks President Kagame of Rwanda, who’s in attendance. He dedicates Beautiful Day to the late Eunice Shriver and New Year’s Day to the late Ted Kennedy. Bono brings a fan wearing a turban and holding a US flag on stage to help sing Sunday Bloody Sunday. The show features only five songs from No Line On The Horizon, the lowest total since the tour began in June.

    Hi Joe! Just wanted to update you and let you know your unofficial guide was perfect! My friend and I were numbers 171 and 172 in line and we got inside the circle and pretty much our choice of spots. Everyone in the queue was great – met some really nice people. We ended up choosing to stand near the back rail center becuase of the height of the front stage. It was great because the band was still close in front and then when they came around on the walkout it was just amazing. The only bad thing about standing where we did was that several very tall guys were in front of us so we had to shift a little to see around them. Show was amazing – Moment of Surrender was my favorite. I hope more shows come to the US in 2010! Thanks again! Julie – Pittsburgh, PA
