This was the best concert I've ever been at. We were standing directly in front of Adam the whole night - 3rd person from the fence. Having seen the show a number of times already, my mate and I just decided to watch Adam. So when there was action on the catwalks and everyone else had their back to the main stage We just kept watching Adam and waving at him. It would've been impossible to miss as we were the only people in a sea of people facing forwards!
Anyway we made him laugh a couple of times and at the end of the show I when they were playing an extra song after Kite (BAD), I was asking for 2 more throughout the whole song... was disappointed when I got the shake of the head...
Was pretty cool that both Adam and Bono noticed us.
Awesome concert.
They were fully into it the whole time...

I must have been standing near you. I was on Adams side, 3 or so rows back, right in line with his cabs

Adam is the forgotten man of the group but his bass was perfect in Melbourne and that is why they souded soooo goood.

Bono even said outside the Corner Hotel, it was one of their best concerts in years.

Sounds as if Melbourne 2 was really the hit! I have seen some stuff on You Tube. But does anyone know where I can download the concert in mp3, because I have only seen Melbourne 1 and the other Australian concerts around here. I would so LOVE to hear the latest Melbourne show in a decent quality.

Talking to work mates about the gigs and suffering from concert amnesia, which song was it in the set that had the "walking man" on the screen? I think it was Sometimes but I'm

I never forget Adam...

I deliberately stood near the catwalk (3 people back) on his side of the stage for Melb 1 (my first U2 show), and was wearing a t-shirt with a big bass clef on the front. I really should have worn it to Melb 2, as I got a lot closer to him when he came out to Edge's b-stage, and he might have noticed it then. *L*

Bass is the best! That guy with the guitar was pretty good too though.

Adam came right by us to play Steets on Night 2 and it was fucking amazing. He even let some people touch the neck of the guitar.

Pride to Streets has to be the best song transition I've ever seen with people singing the "whoh oh oh oh" bits, and Streets with the African flags as the background fits the song perfectly.

Good to hear Bono said it was their best show in years. They've done some great shows in that time too. I just hope he doesn't get on the bar table and nearly spill my beers next time.

Great, great shows!

What this concert had over the American tour is that BOno was a lot loser with his chat between songs.

His comments had been refined over a number of concerts and the whole thing was a lot less forced and more flowing, like a real show.
