It's a Christmas-themed show tonight, the last one of the year in Boston. Bono says his Christmas list includes 5 million people for the Make Poverty History Campaign, a fire engine, more time with his kids, and that The Edge wants a train set. During Beautiful Day, Bono sings 'See Santa Claus right in front of you' to a Santa in the ellipse and adds a bit of 'Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)' and 'Jingle Bells.' Fans in the arena make a display of white One Campaign signs during One. Fans dressed as Santa Claus and Elvis Presley dance on stage during Mysterious Ways, and Bono wishes them a Merry Christmas.


great show,light show was awsome, after they played where the streets have no name the applause was the loudest i've ever experienced.this was the best show i've seen.

Saw the 1st leg May 28th show where the lads seemed like they were in a hurry to get out of town. I can say that this show was 10x better Great set list Instant Karma/Norwegian wood 2 encores They have restored my faith. It was also awesome to see Institute open and hear some Bush mixed in. Side note the 2 shows cost me a total of $530 for tickets and I stll didn't get to hear them play "I Will Follow"

i have always been a fan of u2, but last night was the first time ever attended a concert, and i have to tell you, you haven't lived until you see U2 LIVE!!!!
i know this may sound absurd, but i was moved to the point of tears, and i am a grown man.
To see the band in person is just simply amazing.
they look like ordinary people, they act like ordinary people, but they definitely are EXTRAORDINARY.

never have i seen a person perform with the conviction that bono shows. if you look into his eyes you can see the emotion, at times, possibly the pain?
i must say, that had i known what a spiritual experience it would be, i would have been there long, long ago.
all i can say is thank you U2 , live long, and rock on!!!

Hey, it was an awesome show!!! But that's an understaement, the crowd was great,the vibe was awesome... I loved every second of it!!!!
