Comments: For the final show of the year, fans greet the band with a display of red glowsticks as the show starts, and displays of THANK YOU signs during "Elevation" and "One." Bono is surprised by the gesture -- before "Elevation" he says, "No, thank you!" and then asks Edge and Adam how to say "thank you" in Gaelic. During several songs, Bono thanks members of the crew by name. He sprays champagne on the crowd at one point, and mentions "going home" many times. In between the first and second encores, the entire tour crew walks out and stands around the ellipse, wearing single-letter t-shirts that spell out THE U2 CREW WOULD LIKE TO THANK EDGE BONO LARRY AND ADAM FOR A GREAT 2005.
