July 27, 2009 - Croke Park DUBLIN

They promised us another greater concert, and they simply did it !!!

Tonight the concert was at least as good as saturday, with Stay (Faraway So close), New Year's Day and the famous but so rare "we'll shine like stars in the summer night/we'll shine like stars in the winter light/one heart, one hope, one love"

These concerts in Dublin gave me the U2 fever. U2 in paris was so different.

Being here and see U2 in Dublin is the real U2 experience, the atmosphere is different, the band is different.

I'm so proud to live here in Ireland !!

(Some pictures will follow)

I was second row in front of Bono and it was amazing.First off they rehearsed Drowning Man and Electrical Storm, so that was good enough for me when it comes to hearing although they didn't play them in the show. The pit was so tight I could barely move, but when the boys came they were awesome. Bono even pointed to me during Streets. Got lots of pics and will post tomorrow

No they didn't play Surrender!!!

They played New Years Day for the first time on this tour,
and they played a stripped down version of Stay, (just Edge & Bono)
Bad was also added to the setlist!!

other than that it was pretty much the same old same old setlist!!!!!

I was dissapointed by Saturday and Monday nights concert tbh,
I expected alot more from the band and from the claw also!!!!

They were alot better in Croke Park in 2005 on the Vertigo Tour! they played a much better setlist!!!! and the sound was alot louder!!!!!

Yeah I kinda was tbh, I expected more from the band, the setlist seemed a bit boring to me, they was a few special moments no doubt! but overall I though the setlist lacked a few up tempo songs!

I was looking back on the Vertigo tour setlist for Croke Park and the songs they played then were great!!! alotta uptempo rockers that really get the crowd going! I also think the sound was alot louder in 2005, it seemed a bit mellow in parts this time esp on the new tunes!

ah well just my opinion, I'm glad most ppl on here seemed to enjoy the gig, I did too I just expected more!!

Where were you, because for me the sound was loud enough (inner circle) ?

Was that an acronym of a typo no spoken words?

Cool pics Boldorak!

I was about mid way on the pitch, General admission, Close to one of the claw legs.

Last time I could hear the gig miles away! this time I could barely hear it in Drumcondra, (5 mins from the stadium!)

In the inner circle

I had two cameras :

A compact (for the moment I only posted two or three pics for the compact) and a DSLR with a 70-300 lens

Not really discreet ... So I did not took as much pictures as I wanted to avoid problems ...

thanks. Can you be a little more specific about where in the circle you were? I like the vantage points you had and need advice... as far as the digital camera, what kind?
