An exceptionally loud crowd welcomes U2 to Amsterdam tonight. Bono again sings a bit of opera at the end of 'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own' as he did in Paris. He dedicates Running To Stand Still to Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, killed last year by a Muslim extremist, and to the victims of the recent London bombings. Before Yahweh, Bono leads the crowd in singing Happy Birthday to Anton Corbijn, who is at the show, even though his birthday was in late May.

Holland loves U2 and U2 loves Holland. A very good show from the boys from Ireland. Beautiful lightshow. They played their standard first day set and it was very well balanced. U2 played very good and the audience was going wild. A shame that the sound in the Amsterdam Arena is always poor. When do they stop organising concerts there1? It was very hard to hear what Bono was saying. That's why are responses weren't as it should be. A hot and wild party in Amsterdam. Sorry for my poor englisch.
