Oh did I forget to say another favorite moment was hearing Mothers of the Disappeared! That is another special one for me.

Gravy I think that was Giants Stadium 2.  That kid was standing right in front in me.

Was it? I got thrown off with the date switches. You're right now that I think of it. Very cool moment nonetheless. I remember turning to my daughter who was with us and saying, you see....That is why I love this band!

Return of the Stingray guitar in Turin, though I wasn't even there.

But it showed the world that Bono wasn't out yet.  8)

Bono in leather? That's every tour since 1983, isn't it?

We can all argue about what the best moments were in terms of song debuts or crowd reactions but we all know that the BEST moment this tour was when Bono walked out onto that stage during Return of the Stingray Guitar in Turin, Italy on August 6th, 2010.  Without a doubt.  Just a month and a half before that, the man's career and even ability to walk was in jeapordy.  6 weeks or so after spinal surgery, he walks triumphantly about the stage, screams TORIINOOOOOOOOOOOO, and then gives an amazing redition of Beautiful Day.  Wow

yep, i agree and i was there that night in Torinoo and it was a dream come true, they came back better than ever and Bono looked incredible, from Stingray to MOS and beyond it was a perfect night and along with Roma one of the best nights of my life...

there are too many highlights to mention but...
Roma with u2place’s choreography and being in that moment for Still Haven’t Found and watching the boys' reaction-I get goosebumps just thinking about it,  Bono said it all that night when he said 'che serata magica-viva Italia'! special special night, Bad/All I Want Is You...:)
Mother’s on the 2nd night in Zurich with the rain coming down seemed very emotional-“in the rain we see their tears”, poetic...I wasn’t there but watch that moment on youtube all the time and wish I was...

Every Breaking Wave’s debut, WOWY every night of the tour, the US leg getting Your Blue Room...I could go on and on
...and hopefully there is even so much more to come from this tour that keeps on giving...
