Unos, dos, tres, quatorze! Hello hello, I was in a place called Vertigo! It really was an exploding performance! More than 2 hours jumping, clapping and singing! Bono was vocally very strong (the ending Vertigo was even better than the starting Vertigo!)and the gitarsolo's of the Edge were better than his studioversions! The atmosphere was elevating. Highlights were the big wall effects on City of Blinding Lights, the drumsolo of Bono on Love and Peace (and the Bloody Sunday continueing), the whole stadium thrilling on the Streets, Bono's shadow performance at the start of ZOO Station, the gitarsolo on Mysterious Ways and the dazzling Vertigo in the end! It was a beautiful day! Thank U, U2!

Visit the concert in Gelsenkirchen at 06.12.05, it was amazing,every number and every sound they performed. Never saw such a great concert and
audience. Raymond Maatman
