Solid, good performance.


I reckon it's up there with the best...naturally, I'm back in the Olympiastadion when I'm listening to it. Couple of areas where the bass dominates a bit, but nothing major. 9/10 for me!


I was part of the amazing audience. Fantastic atmosphere. Although I was near the scoreboard, everyone was going mad, really getting into the show. 10/10 for me!


Super show, but my personal highlights were 'The Unforgettable Fire', (think my spine has just about stopped tingling!), and 'Stay'... one of my all time faves! Can't think of any low points of the show.
