Performance notes: Bruce Brody (of Lone Justice and the Patti Smith Group) joins U2 on keys for Please. About twenty New York firefighters and emergency medical workers come on stage during Walk On and remain for the rest of the gig; some of them give spoken tributes to family and friends after U2 leave the stage.

Amazing show, definitely one of the most special U2 shows ever. Amazing audience, never heard an American audience this loud. Stuck In A Moment was a suprise to me how many people were singing along. Best Elevation Tour version of Please, powerful version. Streets suprise me everytime I hear it, what a good song is that! The song New York, really good (altough I really dislike the lyric change). The best part of the show is the ending One, Peace On Earth, Walk On, and Out Of Control. Walk On is really special with all the fireman on the stage, and after some talking and hugging a great version of Out Of Control. You must also watch these 2 songs on YouTube, really cool to see. And after the show people telling stories about 9/11 with Grace playing in the background, wow!
