Definately not photoshopped! I was there and I saw this, it was amazing. It was during moment of surrender. I am the only one in the group i was with to see it as we were in the pit and for some reason during this song I looked behind me.OMG! I was starting to think I imagined this. This is the first mention of the Barcelona angel and I keep telling people to look out for it at the shows, all my U2 mates think I'm imagining things, i have been to 5 360 shows and only saw this once. Glad someone else saw it too!

Not photoshopped, but looks like a projection considering the pattern of light and how they are sitting the same way. Cool though.

You aren't alone.  Someone else at that show posted over in Zootopia saying they saw the same image as well.

SG, they're angels to me. When I have a choice between my head and my heart, the heart wins every time. :)

Ah birdlover, someone special to me once told me I lead with my heart. It does win for me every time. I am happy to see there is someone else who believes in something beyond what our head and logic tells us. As for me, yeah they're angels! Nice chatting with you  ;)

HOLY GUACAMOLE!! If people saw this earlier why weren't they talking about it before? Could be a projection w/fog like others have suggested. Or who knows? I wouldn't rule it out. If/When Angels do feel like rocking they would most certainly be U2 fans!

Damn thats crazy, I don't know what to believe - it looks too surreal to be real :P.

It could've been a random person in the audience or crew for just that night  who projected them up there XD

On a similar note - who here can't get enough of Angels Too Tied To The Ground? Its a great song - to me it seems like the piano
was a precurser to New Years Day (i once half learnt NYD on piano, then figured out the simple bits on ATTTTG and it uses the alot of black notes - I guess its in the same key sig?)
I'll need to look it up to see if what I think is true at all or not.

listen to u2's music and lyrics read the interviews and books, its well known the the boys have a strong faith.

and God looks after his children, u2's success and talent is a testament to that.

Moment of surrender is one of the most spiritual songs they've ever written, anyone who's ever experienced they're own moment of surrender, knows exactly what the song is about.

whatever your opinion.....the facts are the facts, God has a band and they're called U2

Amen Brother!

Wow! That is truly astonishing.   :o     I can't believe I haven't seen or heard about this before now.   

Whatever your opinion - real, projected or photoshopped I think kowalski has hit the nail right on the head.

"God has a band and they're called U2", I love it!

if you look close enough ou can see the beam of light going up towards the closest angel so the smoke theory is highly plausable

aulthough i am one who would love to believe that the angels were looking upon our band here :) 1st night of the tour was it, making sure it all went without a hickup and kept them in the show business:)

You can click into the photo to view original size-- I would love to think it is angels and would think they would choose U2 to make an appearance, but also think they might look a bit different than this.  The photo does not appear by any means to be photoshopped, but does look like a projection.

Whether they are angels or a projection, the photo is amazingly beautiful. I believe in angels and would consider it a sign from the man upstairs.
