Best U2360 Concert So Far
« on: February 19, 2011, 02:01:01 AM »
I chose the concert in Turin.  Bono's triumphant return put it above any other concert they will ever perform basically.  And the fact that they debuted 3 unreleased tracks, and dusted off Miss Sarajevo and HMTMKMKM was stellar.

And please dont vote "other" just so you can say your own show.  Try not to be biased concerning your own concert experiences please  ;)

This was hard! I finally chose Turin though, because of the three new songs... (starngely, I only remember two).
Wanted to say Auckland or Sydney though. ONE TREE HILL! And the amazing Love Rescue Me.

Turin, though I admit I am biased by the fact that I was five rows away from Bono for it. [/Endless gloating]

Went with Amsterdam, it was above average, but 2010 Helsinki with the impromptu No Line and first airing of Every Breaking Wave is just as good a balance.

Toronto 1, 9-16-09. Bono's voice was incredible and the setlist was packed with rare gems.

Turin, even though I didn't attend.

The fact that here was Bono, hopping around on stage months removed from back surgery on a condition that could have ended his career, is truly incredible.

I voted Brussels 2, not only because I was there  :P but especially because of this magical moment in the rain: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

And also because of this (Until the end of the world):  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I went with Cape Town because there was magic there that evening. This was very emotional for Bono to perform in the land that he has devoted much of his life to help. I could hear it in his voice. Chills went up and down my spine. No contest here for me.

But runner up would be NY 2   ;)   ;D
