NJ2 Show 4 guys took over the stage w Bono's help..5-18.

and sang a song?

News just came in in from the arena.

Bono helped the 4 men sing ISHFWILF, and they played instruments too.

Please post about that.

Yup, the Bank Robbers. Awesome surprise. I just got back from the show (and I'm still deaf in the left ear for some reason). Check it out on atu2.com

They were a young band, the guys looked like they were in their late teens-early 20s. The guitarist did NOT want to leave the stage!!! It was fun, and it made you remember how U2 was a young band once too...

IMHO, the Bank Robbers sucked. BUT, I give them and U2 kudos for having the kahonay's to do what they did.

FYI, ISHWILF was not the classic chiming guitar version, rather it was distortion guitar heavy. Bono tried to hurry the guys off the stage after the second verse and chorus, but they kept playing! Eventually, they (with Bono) completed the third verse, and it was over soon thereafter. The BR's guitarist had a much better voice than the lead singer.

As to the show itself, I thought it was very good. Being as objective as possible (I was in the ellipse tonight), NJ1 beat NJ2. It just seemed that the crowd was louder for NJ1, which forced U2 to play two extra songs (OOTS and Vertigo reprised). If you saw their facial expressions during NJ1, you know that U2 was blown away by how the crowd was responding. NJ2 did not elicit that same kinda "wow" response from U2.

I will admit though that it appeared that Bono and The Edge considered playing OOTS after MW (like NJ1), but Bono changed his mind when he came back to the mic. Maybe The Edge convinced Bono to save the song for MSG?

With that said, the show (NJ2) and the ellipse experience were amazing. Gloria? Bad? The Ocean? Luv it! I still have ringing in my right ear. Hopefully, there are a couple of wrinkles for the show on Saturday.

If someone can help me with you send it links, I have tons of clips (video) from NJ1 and NJ2, including the U2/BR's performance.
