I enjoyed the show last night. I learned the hard way that U2 has to play certain songs for the people that aren't die hard fans like we are. I don't like a lot of the songs they choose and wish for many different songs but if I was a casual fan that knew their popular stuff, I would have thought the show rocked.

wait, so this was for the finale that Patti came out to join in Instant Karma?! Have they done that before, to close or elsewise? and I thought the band were buds with Patti?!
(sorry for my ignorance...)
what are the karmic implications of a dis-jointed and possibly dis-spiriting performance of instant karma? I'm getting a sharp headache contemplating...

i'm glad the people present enjoyed the show though!
wish i'd been there...
cheers all!

yeah it was the finale....but previous nights Instant Karma was in the final encore...but was followed by Bad or a couple of other songs. apparently yahweh and 40 were printed on the set list.

i have only found this from @u2 from fan reviews and they were all generally of the same opinion....that the show was brilliant but the ending was abrupt and strange. they didnt even say goodbye properly...none of the usual thanks for coming, thanks for giving us a great life...blah blah blah....it was just a few waves

it all sounds odd to me

anyway....i hope all those who went enjoyed the show....im sure it was amazing as usual

I was there and the show was fantastic. The ending was kind of bizarre and left me amoung others confused. Yes Patti was singing IK at the end, and she seemed to not quite know what was going on. Bono kind of helped her off the stage, while the rest of the band followed. Edge and Adam still were playing and then they all came back out to sing another verse. It didn't seem to work and they just left. The audience, I believe, was supposed to sing "We all shout on..........." but it didn't p[an out well. I thought for sure Bono would come back out and sing Yahweh, 40 and or Bad but the house lights went up. It left us all confused..........

Patti spit all over the stage but NOT at Larry.

disculpa pero no puedes decir que las canciones que tocaron son una mierda ponkine y que todo es una mierda.....sabes que no es asi.....tampoco estoy de acuerdo en los ataques, pero quiza hay algo...tal vez estas siempre haciendo comentarios negativos y eso motiva a ese sujeto a joder.....
Bueno me da gusto de igual forma que U2 este por Santiago, estare por ahi el 26 de febrero
Suerte!

Be gentle -- it's my first post. If this question is out of line, please let me know. I am a part of the team that made the "Original Of The Species" video, and at the 11/22 concert Bono gave us a shout out. Is there any way, without violating any laws, that I could get an audio file of just our shout out?

Much appreciated...
