In 2018, U2 played 13 different European cities during the second leg of the Experience and Innocence tour. In this slideshow, as in 2015, we've asked 13 fans who were there to pick a photo for each residency and share a personal story. From Berlin to Dublin and back to Berlin, this is how the tour unfolded across Europe.
U2's Experience and Innocence show had a story to tell and was made with a story in mind. The band wanted to tell us something. But what is this story, what is this narrative that fans have been talking about all year? In this article we unravel the narrative, the songs and the stories. Join us as we attempt to breakdown the Innocence from the Experience.
"U2 won't break up over creative differences. We'll break up over someone squeezing the toothpaste from the wrong end of the tube."

In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
