Never thought the first show would be better than the second, but it was.

Underwhelming night, but it was cool to hear Unknown Caller again at the very least. And the rain sure chose the right section of the main set to come down, during UF and COBL.

Got to say the last two nights have had the two single worst performances of WOWY I've actually seen U2 play in person. Don't know why they waste their time playing it if they're going to half-arse it so badly.

Critiques aside, I can't wait for Monday's gig.

Is this the first time on this tour that he's brought someone up to dance with him?

And has anyone met any of the band members before or after the show?

Looks like a great night. I like the set more with One later in the show. Would be a good set including Bad and UTEOTW.

Ax- was the first show really better than the second? It seems like (from other critiques and from crowd participation, etc.) that the second night was much better

I had the same question in another thread. It seemed like she was kind of mad that she had to get off stage?

I didn't see Friday's show (and I'm very disappointed that I didn't) but I don't agree on everything you're saying here. In my experience, this is the only time I've seen WOWY truly shine (this was my 6th U2 gig) - One was underwhelming, but somehow WOWY just really got to me, a great performance in my mind. Oddly enough, I was in tears when they sang In A Little While, this surprised me as I don't really think the song is that special - or at least I didn't think it was. Here I am and it reminds me of the first time I bought a U2 record, back in early 2002, true nostalgia, and a great performance of the song.

Personal highlights:

NLOTH
Mysterious Ways
Unknown Caller
UF
Ultraviolet
WOWY
MOS

Don't get me wrong, I was a little disappointed in the set, but to me at least, this wasn't an underwhelming night at all. Better than the first Vertigo Dublin gig, if that helps anyone.
