U2's only show in New York City this spring comes two days after the annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash concert, and Bono sings a bit of The Ramones' 'Rockaway Beach' during 'Vertigo.' 'One' is dedicated to economist Jeffery Sachs, who has been Bono's longtime partner in promoting African relief efforts. At the end of 'The Fly', the full band goes into an abbreviated version of David Bowie's 'The Jean Genie.'


I thought the show was great. I feel that Bono's mic was too low and The Edge's guitar was too loud. Can't blame the band though, that's the sound tech's job to get the mix right.

I just saw the first Boston show. Bono's voice sounded horse and the guitar was too loud. I wish they mixed up their songs more instead of playing a very similar set every night. It was a good show, but they are capable of so much more if they want.

I MUST find a jacket like the one Bono wore for the Madison gig. The starry red leather jacket....... anyone with any info on who made it for the concert will be MASSIVELY appreciated!

El concierto fue madnifico, espectacular
