Our show of the month brings us back to South America, a continent that hasn't seen a U2 show for quite some time now. The show in Chile in 2006 demonstrates why it would be great for U2 to go there again, with a great performance and an amazing crowd. U2 adapted a small part of their setlist to Chile which made for a great highlight as Mothers of the Disappeared was played on a charango (traditional South American instrument). It was the first performance of the song in almost 10 years. A song we are about to hear again in 2017.
i waited almost 12 hrs in the line then another 6 hrs in the stadium, but i manage to get 10 mts from the stage, it was an amazing show it blew my mind, u2 came to chile right after they won 5 grammis for "how to dismantle an atomic bomb", the band was at it best at that time and you could see that on stage, call me "old school" but i did bring any camera or cell phone to the concert, i dint wanted to be distracted for a selfie or anything else, so i enjoyed every bit of the show, i lose my voice for a couple of days after it was finished..... ahhhhh what a memory!!!!
If all of our active forum posters would donate € 0,50 a year, we could pay all our hosting and storage bills without personal funding.
"I was very nervous about doing Live Aid, it was such a huge gig. People were queuing up to do it because of the exposure, they were talking about the amount of TV coverage and whatever. It was hard to convince some people that we were there for the right reasons."
