What was the song that was playing as the band came on stage at the 10/10/05 MSG show?

What an incredible set!

Talk about spanning an incredible career. Electric co., I will follow!? Wow. They pulled out ALL the stops for that gig.

Wish I could have seen it.

The concert was amazing, you may see some pix at:

This was my first U2 concert and it DEFINITELY won't be my last. It was outrageous.

I wasn't at the show but I was wondering about a photo I saw. Who was that guy Bono was singing with without his shirt? And what were they singing? What was that all about?

wow. my boyfriend went to the show and said it was amazing. too bad i couldn't go. But i've been to other ones..He said this one was awesome tho. apparently, vertigo was the best because of the backround lighting...
i am completely in love with u2


I agree with Tony. What was the song U2 came out to???

The song played in the beginning of the U2 shows on the Vertigo tour is called "Wake Up" by Arcade Fire.
