The Edge said to the Brazilian press: "the first concert (in Morumbi) was great... but the second one... Wow! Unbelievable! I don't know why, but there was something different!..."back
Indeed, there was. The thing about those guys is that they put out an impeccable concert. Technically, it's almost flawless, but what can I say about their charishma?! They seemd to be exhultant! Larry took the mic to thank the crowd at the end of the concert! And the crowd was great. You could see those four were really amazed at those 73 thousand voices singing entire songs in a foreign language...
Technically, I think Larry's drums were a bit too low in volume, but he still kicked ass. The Edge's guitars were perfectly clear, and so was Adam. Bono had lost his voice a little bit, but, really, it was, without any doubt, the best concert I've seen in my life.
I have to say I like the setlist for the previous concert better than this one, mainly because of the ending with "40", and Larry being the last to leave the stage after his solo. But i think Bono + Edge playing Desire makes up for that. It's true, the girl asked, and Bono asked the crowd if any girld there played the guitar. I almost died that momment, because I do, but, heck, I was way too far to be pulled up... Can you imagine? To play Edge's guitar??? Oh, wow, that would have been awesome...
I got there with no tkts and was able -- by some miracle -- to buy two for the stands for a very reasonable price (less than $10 over the regular price). The next day, I read on the news there were 20 thousand people standing outside the stadium. I was really lucky and, boy, am I glad I didn't miss that concert... They should have booked at least one more concert in Brazil. Now, I just hope it doesn't take them 8 bloody years to come back again! :)
