"One of the best 360 shows in the 7th leg and in the whole tour. The setlist is pretty unique. Right at the beginning of EBTTRT you can tell it's going to be a special night. They nailed it!"

Moment of Surrender
The last time before 2017 U2 set foot in Mexico City for a run of shows was in 2011 for the 360 tour. The second was our highlight, with the first performance of Stay since 2009, the first performance of Desire since 2010 and only the second performance of Out Of Control on the 360 tour. It was also the first show to feature at least two Zooropa songs since 1993. This certainly was one of the best 7th leg shows and maybe one of the best of the tour, with great Sinatra snippets during Until, a great Stand By Me snippet, an amazing intro to Beautiful Day (with a girl saying the lyrics in Spanish) and a powerful version of Ultra Violet near the end. We also have an amazing recording of the show, so what's more to say? This is a must-have and must-listen.
"I'm a bit of a stray dog. I would not have been in the queue to get married had I not met someone as extraordinary as Ali. I always felt more myself with her than with anybody."

The song 'I Fall Down' is about a girl Bono knew named Julie. She's the daughter of a wealthy lawyer in New York, who ended up moving to ireland and becoming involved in the same bible group U2 were in. She later became involved with Pod, a roadie for U2 at the time, the 'John' in the song.
