I thought the show was amazing....I have been absent from this site for quite a while and not reading anything about the tour, setlists, etc. I loved the setlist. Bono was fired up last night and seemed way more energetic to me than when I saw them in ATL for the Vertigo tour. I thought the Vertigo ATL show was great, but was completely blown away last night. The sound was much improved over when I saw them at the Dome for Popmart. I thought the crowd was great and was happy to see such a massive turnout for the boys in ATL. Was completely surprised at Crazy Tonight.....wow, I loved that!!! what remix version is that? I want to download it. Loved the return of Unforgettable Fire, always a blast hearing Until the End of the World, City of Blinding Lights is verified stadium anthem now, glad they brought back Elevation tour-style Elevation, perfect ending to the show with Moment of Surrender....very heavy section with SBS, Walk On, One, Streets (can't remember the order) but thought this section was very effective and sold the ideas and points better than on Vertigo tour.
There is nothing like the U2 experience! Got to share a special night with my wife and other people who are very special to me (and that includes U2).
Praying for new album before Christmas and more American dates in 2010. We WILL be there!!

I had quite possibly the best time ever last night at this concert. I was hot as hell and have never danced and jumped around as much as I did last night. My place in the inner circle was perfect and so were the people around me. I do have my minor complaints but over all it was a great experience and something that I will treasure in my memory forever.

It was the best of the 3 I've seen on this tour so far! The band seemed to be in good spirits too and the crowd was awesome.

Hi Velvet Dress! It was nice meeting you, and thanks again for the ride!

We enjoyed the show and had a great time. My girlfriend said that she didn't think the "pit" was worth it. We were in the pit at the very back towards the railing on Adam's side. We agreed that it would have been a little better if we would have gotten closer to the actual stage.

They spend most of the time there. Overall it was a great experience. Did anyone else notice a slight voice effect on Bono's vocals though? It sounded like he had a little helium or something. I noticed when he first started singing.

I do prefer the smaller venues to stadiums now that I've had the chance to be at both.

The way I go into U2 shows is I always hope I'll have some new experience while I'm there, like hearing a song I've never heard live before, so this was a good show for me. I was just so happy to hear The Unforgettable Fire. I was worried they'd lose that one before they got here. My only complaint is that I couldn't see much of Bono from my place in the inner circle as he was singing it on the outer circle but being so close for the rest of the show makes up for it, I guess. Another first for me was being sprayed with Bono Backwash during Until the End of the World when he emptied his water bottle on the crowd. Speaking of UTEOTW, I have to say that I've seen that song at every U2 show I've ever been to and it's one song that I don't think I'll ever get sick of. I love, love, love it!

The only thing I wish were different was I wish the beer venders who kept pushing their way around the inner circle had been selling water. They could have made a killing if they had just put a couple of water bottles in there with the beer!

Show and crowd last night were awesome! I
met some great people from Tennessee
and Virginia in the queue, and the lining up
procedure and security at the Dome were
one of the best I have ever encountered
at any concert.

Got into the inner GA circle area & took a place
on the back rail on Adam's side. Saw sdunn & her
family from a distance in their seats I really like Muse,
and knew they are a bit harder then U2. As a result,
I'm not sure the crowd knew what to make of them.
I really wanted to hear Knights of Cydonia, and,
although it wasn't played, I think the set was good.
They put on a great & fantastically loud warm-up show.

I cheered for Dallas when he walked past me during
the set up and he flashed me a huge smile.
The guys were in fine form last night. Loved hearing
MW & UTEOTW again; missed YBR. I screamed my
head off for Adam during the Crazy Remix, he
stopped right by us, looked right at me, and I blew
him a kiss. He smiled and winked at me.

The crowd had an amazing energy during U2's set.
Everyone - the band and the crowd - seemed to be
having a great time. Overall, I had a wonderful time
and cannot wait to go to more shows next year.

We wnjoyed our experience, as always. For Elevation, we were front row in front of the Edge; Vertigo, outer inner circle against rail on Adam's side, and last night, inner inner circle against rail on Adam's side, all fo these in ATL. We got in line at 8:00 AM and were right around #200. Our friends had never been to a U2 concert and enjoyed everything as well. Having the concert at Phillips or the GA Dome works great for the General Admission experience because of plenty of facility parking (since we get tehre early in the day) and the CNN Center food court. This time, they also had concession booths w/ Papa John's, beer, water, etc. and had the "Ask Me" information people up in the lifeguard-type chairs which I had previously only seen for all-day events like the SEC Championship Game/Fanfare or b-ball tourney. They even had one devoted to the general admission line who went over to the guys grilling burgers on the camp stove, and he made up a song about how the rest of us suddenly wanted to be friends with those guys since they had the burgers, the grills, the ketchup, the chips, etc. The guys in front of us returned with doughnuts for all of their neighbors, the guys behind us were from our neighboring suburbs, and everyone was great to be around. Inside the inner circle, my wife and I realized that we were next to the same group of people we'd been next to for the 2005 Vertigo show at Phillips.

As for the show, I thought it was a good show, but maybe not as good as Vertigo; there was something about that one opening with COBL and the confetti rain, hearing "40," and, to me, what seemed like more interaction on the ring which we were up against. I'll observe, like Stryker395 alluded, that Bono's voice seemed a bit raspy. Another friend of mine who'd been to Vertigo '05 also asked if he were singing in a higher pitch. But that aside, it was still a great concert; I loved hearing "The Unforgettable Fire," "Magnificent," "Amazing Grace" and "Moment of Surrender." I like the previous "Hallelujah" versions of "Walk On" better, and I think the lyrics and melody of "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" are too beautiful and are unfortunately overlooked in the live remix version, but it seems that most people like it, so it should probably stay.

I'm already looking forward to a return trip and G.A. experience if/when they tour after SoA...

I had the best time ever . Went with another member from here mskitkat and my youngest son who turn 14. We met up with 3 member's from another U2 website. We were near the front of the line. Met some awesome U2 fans that were having a good ol time. We ended up inside the circle against the railing on Edge's side. The bridge moved and stopped right above us when my favorite (UTEOTW) came on, I do believe I lost my mind. I was jumping and singing my head off. And when it came for Edge's solo he had stopped right above me and through the holes of the ramp I could see Edge's eyes looking down while he was playing and I stood there staring at him in awe What a Amazing night! Got my toes stepped on a couple times but it was no biggie. Everyone there was having great time. Luv U2 and the fans are the best people you could ever meet. Hope I'll get to do this again, soon
p.s. my son said he had a awesome time and he was so glad he got to see them!
@U2dork, I was dying for some water too.
@Stryker395 I noticed the voice thing too. I thought it was just me, Muse was so loud my ears were ringing. They were great but too loud. Plus I saw some of vids on Youtube of U2 and his voice sounded great on them.

Great show, wish we had one more song though, was expecting Pride and I wasn's sure why there were 22 instead of the normal 23. Atleast w egot UTEOTW which we didn't get in Raleigh. To me was a better crowd than what was in Raleigh and it was nice to sit in the lower deck with a back to a seat instead of metal benches at NC State. Crazy is one of the major highlights and Vertigo and Elevation bring the house down until you thought it couldn't get any better and then WTSHNN starts, WOW!!! I'm very said now bc those were probably my last 2 shows and I doubt they'll come back to this general area next year. I'm still amazed at how fast 2 1/2 hours go!!! Can't wait to SOA and the DVD!

I wish to second that Miss VelvetDress i absolutely loved the show but the only thing i have any complaints about is the lack of people coming around with drinking water, if they had been selling that for 8 dollars a pop they really might have made even bigger money, but then again the beer vendors were in business last night in the GA section, people were hot in there,lol

Hi Trinn! I think your son was by the rail in the pit behind me...I was the one who talked to you a bit about Hilton Head. Sorry, I stepped on your son's toe a couple of times (and maybe yours too). Glad you both had a great time! It was an awesome show!!!

Had an awesome time with my friends who had never see U2 before. They said it was the best concert they have ever seen. I resisted the urge to tell them I told them so. Here are pics I posted on my facebook.
