They played Bad. At Wembley Stadium. The reason I'm a U2 fan. I'm going away to invent some new words.

Just a few random thoughts...

V.Good performance by band. Great to hear Bad. Nice fuck up by Larry in Pride. Crowd didnt really get going until B.Day. Got in the inner circle didnt arrive at ground til 3.30.Stadium and facilities are second to none but......

'Walk to the left, walk to the right, dont go here,cant come in here,dont walk too fast,bars shut at 9.45,get off the shoulders,dont smoke,cant stand here sir,move up the steps please etc etc etc. FFS Wembley its a rock concert not an opera!

I went with someone who is only a casual fan and were quite pleased to get into the inner circle for the proximity angle, but wanted to go towards the back of the GA for the encore a) for a different angle and see the claw in all its glory b) get a quick getaway through the entrance we came in to avoid any dis-orientation. I know we live in a day and age of H&S but bloody hell give me a bit of the muck and bullets that used to be stadium concerts not the sterile conditions in Wembley.

Big thumbs up to the Parky boys for the parking advice in and out like flynn and back in Worcs by 12.30

U2 performance

As a footnote to what i wrote last night. Put that performance with a Croatian crowd in the Nou Camp and not have Breathe as the opener and you would have a very special show

Also whether it was just where i was(many guests,vips etc) but i was expecting a bit more of a sinalong response to 40? Though it was sometimes hard to hear the crowd en masse down in the circle because the sound is a bit echoy.

Back on the pitch for me at Sheffield i think its more fun!

Oh and Larry did almost the exact same thing on Pride i think at the 2nd Bercy show on Elevation tour i think. I like it!

Man it was a great show, loved hearing Stay and Bad .

I have also come to the conclusion that Glasvegas truly suck .

Agree with MacHat about Glasvegas, saw them in Dublin so thought the safest place to be on Saturday was in the concourse

Really excellent gig last night. We were stood in the Claw on Edge's side. Definite highlight to hear UTEOTW > NYD once again, dropping in Bad at the end is always a winner as well Thought the new songs sounded excellent once more, for me Unknown Caller & Magnificent have been 2 standouts of those.

Bring on my next stop in Cardiff (but my last stop )
