Is Larry crying during 40 on the Chicago DVD?

Before Bono launches into the sing along of how long, the camera cuts to Larry, who appears to be teary eyed...

Any info if he was crying or what not?

I've noticed that too. He looks like he is about cry. It's an emotional moment.
I get the feeling that he knows that the band may not be around much longer, and when they do play their last-ever gig, they will play 40 as the last song and I think Larry knows that. The song is so emotional. I think most U2 fans will expect 40 to be their last ever song they play.

Ah, nothing better than those stretches where U2 aren't touring/releasing albums.

I think he realizes at that moment how many Interferencers can't see the brilliance of this last album.

I almost bawled too!!!

Larry also looks like he is crying during I Will Follow on the Boston DVD....I'd imagine it is just pain from drumming.

I think he was probably a bit in pain AND sad because the song IS sad.....every time I hear it it makes me want to tear up. I tear up because I love the song, and it is also the sign the show is over, it is the last song.....even when my U2 tribute band friends do 40 at their shows I get very sad at the first note of 40 because I know the show is soon over.

He was crying because he knows he's not a very good drummer.

He's crying because Bono didn't grab his ass during Yahweh like he did a couple shows earlier in Vancouver.

Yes he's crying because he won't be seeing me again for another 40 years. Oh the pain. Woe.

actually, he is crying because he just realized that he is old and has a greasy mullet and girls will only pay attention to him if he is hot

Larry has drummed all the way through loads of other shows without shedding a tear because of his arms. If his arms were hurting him that much that he starts crying by the end of some shows, I think he'd have to reconsider his career choice.

When his arms are bothering him, he takes painkillers or uses those strappy things you sometimes see him wearing.

I haven't watched the dvd in a while, but I doubt he was crying. He was probably just putting a lot of effort into his drumming. When he concentrates really hard or is hitting the drums really hard, he gets a look on his face like he's about to cry. Eg. Sunday Bloody Sunday, Slane dvd.

He is crying because he is thinking, "One day, The Interferers are going to cover this song."
