Fan Review:

By Paul Heyworth

“This place makes Wembley Stadium look like a bowling green”! This is Bono’s opening comment to the 90’000 crowd and a quick glance around and you could see what he meant. Leeds Roundhay Park is HUGE!

Yet in true U2 style they made the venue look as if it was not big enough. From the front to the sides and right upto the back of the hill, everyone sung, danced and screamed out and joined in with the greatest band of all time.

The set list was the norm from previous shows on this tour. The highlight was ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’ and looking at the crowd when the lights came on. Wow! You really had to be there.

Great band, great show, great weather and one massive, massive, massive crowd!

Shame they never played ‘With Or Without You’.

But what a day!!!!!

indeed, what a day, one of the best memories of my entire life. i went with my 2 brothers, had to park at least 2 miles away and as we got nearer and the amount of people get bigger you could feel this was gonna be something amazing. so we got there as oakenfold was playing, and managed to get right near the front, probably 5 metres from the walkway coming out into the crowd.
and that thing that bono said about making wembley look like a bowling green, i'll never forget that, or the feeling when i looked back and saw just a sea of people stretching back. amazing.
