The best gig i've ever been too, doubt it will ever be beaten unless i see U2 again at some point.
Simple as that

BONO was on top form, great voice, great interaction with the crowd.
BONO IS GOD

Loved every song. Highlight was Mysterious Ways for me but i liked the remix of Dont go Crazy as well

Great stage. Great crowd. Everyone was so nice. Great atmosphere.

Loved every moment!! £55 was a bargain
Will add some vids to youtube at some point and put them here later

Just woke up now as i didnt get home till 3am

^3am, I can beat that - got back to London at 4:30am!

Great show, the band were spot on throughout. That was my 5th and final show for the tour this year, and I would say that this show would come in joint 2nd with the opening night in Barcelona. Wembley 2 was the best imo.

my seventh (and sadly) final U2 show for 2009. But what a summer it's been- Nou Camp-Croke-Wembley- Cardiff

Joined the GC queue at about midday- initially it seemed like the usual poor MS organisation had struck again, but apparently the queueing policy was down to Evil Nation- the venue would rather have issued wrist bands and send everyone away

anyhoo- gates opened about 4.30pm- no hassle, walked across the pitch to the Inner Claw- mission accomplished it was off to the unallocated seats for the support acts.

As ever had a great time during the U2 set- no huge suprises having seen the show before, but still get a huge buzz from hearing the new songs and the UC-UF-COBL-V- CT (remix) segment is amazing. Spent most of the night leaping about so was a bit knackered by the end of it- but so totally worth it.

Very pleased we stayed over night in Cardiff- it took 2 hours for the traffic to clear past the hotel- and all that awaited those cars was the endless roadworks ansd lane closures on the M4

so that;s the end of my U2 tour for the year- it's been huge fun at every show- the buzz of the first night at Nou Camp, the insanity of the three Croke Park shows- meeting some of the folk from herem, the hours spent queueing for the GC at Croke, the Red Zone at Wembley 1, unexpectedly making it into the GC for Wembley 2 and of course Cardiff..and finally seeing them perform MLK and UF (two long time favourites that I never thought I'd see them perform)

roll on the 2010 leg of the tour!

Cardiff was amazing! It was a fantastic night - the band were brilliant and so were the crowd. I was at the first Wembley too and I though that was brilliant, but Cardiff was just... wow

I've not yet collected my thoughts about Cardiff... I don't feel strongly about it one way or another

Wow what a night

Went with 2 wonderful mates ( Jem & Louanne ) 2nd row FOS right in front of Adam! Even though the tallest man i'd ever seen in my life(I'm only 5ft) was in front of me didn't spoil my fun.

I sang my out, moved my big fat arse and took a few pics.

Loving The CT remix and the fact i got Bad again

Thanks U2 for a fantastic week Only 61 days until Vegas

Seven shows this tour, this one was without doubt the best.
IMO Sheffield was the worst, but this literally blew my head off, probably the best U2 crowd i've ever been a part of and i've done over 30 shows going back to 92.

I've never seen Bono so overwhelmed by the noise of a crowd.

let me tell you America,we sent them off in style, they're yours now... Enjoy you are truly in for a treat!!!!
