2005-06-22 - Excellent performance submitted by MKOz

Apparently they have tried a new technology of public address which featured Bono's voice sounding to some people in the audience as if he was whispering behind their ears while the others didn't have a clue what was happening. Personally speaking I was kinda aware of the use of this experiment so even though I wasn't among the lucky ones to experience it, I didn't mind. But Bono's voice did cut off in certain parts which disturbed many people as they thought it was a crap sound engineering.

Stuck between devil and the deep blue sea on the longest day of the year in Scotland where it almost never goes dark, the longitudinal placement of the stage to beat the sunlight playing havoc with the band's eyes or the audience compromised the sound indeed. The slapback from the terraces closer to the stage than the conventional stadium gig layouts was noticeable, but the performance was top class.

Oh, and the messages did get through. Thanks for the thank you reply on my mobile today, Bono, anytime...

It was a memorable night indeed.
