Bono's voice is as good as I've heard it this century, he sounds fantastic!

One includes Bono's "global crisis" speech that triggered climate change skeptics:

It's hard to hear in the recording, but the entire stadium was singing One, Bono stopped and let us do it:


EBW, stripped down piano version:

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Sound was not great his voice sounded good.

Yeah the venue is awful for big rock bands like U2. The stadium's acoustics were designed for football, so if the crowd's small the noise would still be loud and make it sound like a bigger crowd's there. Which makes it hard to soundcheck because crowds make it different. Also, the roof was open for the start of the show but was closed later (during the TJT set I think) due to a bit of rain (it was only a light spring shower, hardly anything!). So the sound was affected by the roof. I don't know if U2's techs did proper soundchecks, it could have been better. But honestly, it still sounded great for most areas (just a bit bass heavy).

Phone recording quality varies too!

Wow that was a much more credible Bad than I was expecting. Seems like it was a really good moment in the show with the cell phone lights and the Nick Cave snippet.

Was just thinking, Bad has long since become centered around the snippet, whatever it may be.

I have better video of that! Trying to figure out how to post it. The poor busker dressed as Darth Vader wanted to go home but we all kept making him play again and again and again and again...  ;D ;D ;D
