Review

2005-11-23 - brilliant show, but awful and quick ending submitted by Bruce

This was my 1st show in 4 years, and as usual, the band sounded fantastic and very energetic. How the Edge gets his guitar to sound so good live, i will never know. Bono's voice was a little strained, but hey, he aint 25 anymore. I also never thought that seats in the corner behind the stage could be any good...only U2 can make those seats into good ones.

I was tickled pink to hear Electric Co., which is just a better song than I Will Follow, and it sounded wonderful. And the choices off of the new album were good, especially Love and Peace, and Species, which arent exactly hits, but they both sounded great. Bullet the Blue was its usual ominous and dark and powerful. I personally dont think they still need to play With or Without You, Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday or I Still Haven't Found, mostly because there are just better choices off of those albums, but i guess theyre fan favorites, so thats ok. But the crime of the night took place during the encores. Ending the show with Instant Karma? Sure, its a great song, and a unique cover song to do, but to close the show with it? Come on. Bad? Walk On? SOMETHING! Having a haggard and to me, mediocre Patti Smith on stage to sing it with them just made it even worse. I'd rather hear the crowd sing along, than hear the has-been that Patti Smith is. Those who really thought it was cool to see Patti Smith sing with them are making things up. She stinks.
