Gig: U2 // Vertigo Tour

Wonderful. Loud. Hot. Gripping. Memorable.

[U2 at Twickenham]

Since others have reviewed last night's gig in some detail I'll spare you a blow-by-blow. We endured the scorching heat to watch the support acts; Idlewild didn't do it for me, but I enjoyed Ash. Shade finally arrived just before U2.

The communal singing of "Greenbelt's favourite hymn", I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For was a clear highlight, as was the Achtung Baby encore - sounding as fresh and experimental as it did on release. (Was that really fourteen years ago?!)

Emma kept grinning at me, so I guess she enjoyed the gig too. It was certainly one to remember.
