My wife who isn’t even a casual fan she just comes for the weekend away and meals out :-) and she said it was probably the best she has seen them

I was on the floor and I reckon you could have doubled the number of people in there, it was really sparse. It did effect me at the start as I prefer it rammed but it did give me the opportunity to walk to the b stage then back up to the main stage depending where the band stood. My wife loved it cause she hates being in a tight crowd.

The beginning was superb, lights of home was known by nearly everyone on the floor. The new songs seemed to be known by everyone round by me. They went down really well. I even enjoyed the best thing arrangement.

All because of you was superb aswell, a lot better then I thought it would be. Got a great reaction and everyone round me knew the words. Think you forget how well those bomb singles did here. Vertigo 1 sometimes you can’t make it on your own 1 city of blinding lights 2 ( I think) and all because of you 5 ( I think) . It was a top 5 single here, that era in the uk was massive for u2

Zoostation through to horses was the highlight for me. I had my usual u2 gig emotional moment during stay and horses. The band were so close to me, I did tear up I must admit.

Elevation again. I say it every time I see them , to everyone that moans it’s still in the set just look at the reaction it gets when it’s played. Up there with the best reactions of the night.

The Eu flag with the Union Jack and love heart was a nice touch. Think adding the Union Jack and the love heart made it less of a stay in statement

The gig didn’t miss or need the Joshua tree tracks

At the minute. My opinion does change over time I’d easily put it up there against the i&e shows.

Onto London Tuesday . With a friend that first saw u2 on the Joshua tree tour in 87. I got into them in 2000. Can’t wait

I was there and agree with you completely.. amazing gig but like you I missed a crowded floor of fans. I can only assume that Manchester Arena have put a heavy restriction on the GA space given the recent tragedy, which is understandable.

Did they play every song on the album live at some point in full (past two tours) with the exception of Showman?

That’s the only thing I could think of cause the floor was sold out both nights. I must admit it was nice moving about from main stage, to middle rail to b stage. Never ever had the chance to do that. When they came on I did think what the hells going on though. I think I could have literally lied down on the floor (I’m 6/1) and not touch the person behind me
