Comments: Tonight's show has a definite South American feel to it, thanks to the two fans that Bono brings on stage. First is Marcela from Colombia, who's on stage during "Mysterious Ways" and does the Meerkat video segment. She's carrying a Colombian flag that says "We are waiting for U2 in Colombia." Bono reads the flag and tells her that U2 has never played Colombia, but perhaps someday that will change. Shortly after that, Paolo from Brazil comes on stage to play guitar during "All I Want Is You." He does such a good job that Bono let's him keep the acoustic guitar when the song is over.

There's also a bit of a Led Zeppelin vibe, thanks to Jimmy Page being in the audience. Fans spot him getting a tour of Edge's stage setup before the show begins. Bono sings a couple Led Zeppelin snippets during the show, and during "Beautiful Day" he changes the lyric to "Jimmy Page right in front of you!"

Mike Peters of The Alarm is also at the show, prompting the "Blaze Of Glory" snippet during "Sunday Bloody Sunday."

One other note: Tonight's intermission is the Johnny Cash/"Wanderer" video, not "The Fly" as has been used in recent shows.
