2010-08-10 - Frankfurt, Germany - Commerzbank Arena


Comments: First performance of New Year's Day since 3 October 2009; this is the earliest it has been in a setlist since 10 October 2001. Michael Stipe was in attendance, hence the REM snippet in Vertigo. Moment Of Surrender was dedicated to the victims of the Love Parade crowd crush and their relatives. When U2's 2010 European tour dates were initially announced on 24 September 2009, this was listed as the opening night of the leg. On 30 November 2009, it lost this status when the 6 August 2010, Turin gig was confirmed.

review by KieranU2

I wouldn't award it as better than Turin but it was still a great show. A return of New Year's Day, but it was to be a disappointing one. It obviously wasn't rehearsed thoroughly. But nonetheless, really good 360 show.


Pretty decent sound. Deserves a 4-star, definitely.


No offence to the Germans out there, but you're audiences are never really spectacular to me.


Really good show, nowhere as good as the opening leg show, Turin. New Year's Day was a let down, but it was really the only let down in the show.
