A view from the heart - One High
Have to bow heads to them they were fantastic his voice seemed angelic and haunting and angry and angst ridden by turns.I knew they were good but not THAT good - really set up the night perfectly.
Good to see them in the heart enjoying U2 as well.
getting into the heart was the most amazing experience of my life I felt like I was at a private gig and it felt as if you were part of the show not just watching a show.During Kite the heart lit up lighters which quickly spread to the whole arena, Bono was visibly moved at the sight which resembled a starry night sky.
Edge and Bono performeded an amazing acoustic version of Staring at the Sun at the tip of the heart dedicated to Howie B and Fleur.During Streets as always the arena came alive with 18000 people in unison and loving it big time.
Mysterious Ways just gets better and better and last nights version seemed to go on for eternity which was fine by me.Also nice to see some rather hot moves from Bono there!
During The Fly Bono has a few nibbles of fingers and smells and kisses his hand afterwards sending some lucky girls into a frenzy!
Walk On was amazing too last night Bono seemed so engrossed in it and loses himself a little in the the line .."but I know Im going home".
Finally the whole band walk around the heart and say goodbye and thankyou to everyone and then we knew it was over.....unbelievable.. show will have to rate as my best of the UK tour. I think I am a heart addict now!
Big it up to U2 and thanks to Mark and Tom for a fantastic day in the heart queue!
Las Vegas anyone?!!
