2005-06-22 - The best show on earth? You bet it is... submitted by Paul Coates
I've been a U2 fan for about 15 years now but this has been the first time I've been able to see them live.back
Hampden Park (The national stadium in Glasgow) was packed to the walls with people. I was very fortunate to get right up front (see my pictures) and boy was it worth it.
From the moment the band appeared from within the stage I knew it was going to be something special.
Vertigo kicked us off with Adam having a few solo bass bars along with that relentless drum beat. In comes the Edge and by the time Bono had even said "Uno" the place was absolutely jumping.
All around me were people with that "OH MY GOD IT'S U2!!!" look on their faces.
There were so many highlights that it's difficult to choose just one of them. For me I will never forget when they came on stage to Vertigo but the other moments for me were "Sometimes you can't make it on your own", "Who's gonna ride your wild horses" and when "Zoo station" fired up in the first Encore the place once again just went crazy!
I can honestly say that U2 are the best live act I have ever seen. Bono was the ultimate frontman. The Edge was absolutely flawless, Adam had a real humbled expression on his face as he walked down the catwalks amongst the crowd and even Larry had a real look of disbelief at the reception they were getting.
Even now my left ear is ringing from being so close to those towering red and black speakers on the left of the stage - but everytime I notice that ringing in my ear or hear them on the radio, I end up smiling and remembering that unbelievable show in Glasgow.
