Wow...this is an amazing performance



Wow. What an amazing performance of "Walk On" . I love the end!! You can feel the presence of God. What a powerful witness for those who may have been unsaved. Bono literally crying out to Jesus in front of thousands. . How in the world could his salvation be doubted? I know anyone can say the name and fool many, but there's a genuine heartcry if I ever saw one. It's like the Spirit just fell. It looked like they all felt it but Adam. I'm assuming this is before he became a Believer? It looks almost like he's angry during this song. I know someone told me that you can see a genuine change in him from the Boston and Chicago DVDs, like his whole attitude and persona changed. Is it just me, or does it look like Larry's crying during this performance. I know he gets that expression on his face a lot, but it looked more like he was moved by the Presence of God at that moment. Hallelujah. By the way, does anyone have a performance of "Walk On" from the Vertigo Tour, and what did you think of this one?? God Bless!!

That was the surface meaning. Bono has said that all U2 songs are "praise to God...even the angry ones." The deeper meaning is about Salvation. I believe Bono has said that somewhere. Hence the reason, he says "That's for Jesus" after the performance. Have a good day! God Bless You!

nah, i think all the songs address God in some way, and some of them are very angry and are anything but praise, and i don't think salvation is meant to be taken in a literal sense, or at least in a nakedly religious/Christian context. so i wouldn't take his comment as part of a master plan on Bono's part -- i don't think he sits down and says, "and now, for the subtext: must praise God." i think they just sort of work out that way, if you want, and also if you don't.

take "one." bono is on record (in the Rolling Stone of December 2005) as saying the song is pretty much about a gay son coming out to his father. and in that context, it makes perfect, beautiful and insightful sense. now, is that all it can be? no, of course not. and i think what Bono does, by trying to get at the psychology of a moment or a situation, is touch on very human universal experiences, strands of emotion inherent to any sort of complex situation.

i also don't hear the "that's for jesus" at all at the end.

but it's a great performance, and a great song.

That is a great peformance, and you're right - The Holy Spirit is moving him.

And you're also right that he said "That's for Jesus", right after saying "Thank you". Then he said "and to the Almighty".

Great stuff.

i did hear it this time.

it's so refreshing to hear someone finding something positive in conjunction with Christianity and Jesus -- it's so often used as a vehicle to hate others instead of maximizing human potential, which is what i think the song is about.

It starts w/him saying "Thank you" at 04:45 and continues through w/the "Hallelujahs", to about 05:45. It will be easier if you watch the Youtube performance, and maybe just fast forward to about 04:40. God Bless!

Are you sure he's not saying "thank you Massachusetts"? That's what it sounds like to me, not "thank that's for jesus". The video is from Boston, Massachusetts.

No he's definitely saying "That's for Jesus!" It's pretty clear on the Youtube performance anyway. God Bless!!

U2isthebest and I are having a positive conversation about Bono and his joy in The Lord. Why are you bringing points of contention into the conversation? This is not the appropriate forum for that; this is not Free Your Mind.
