The band was on top form and surprised by the positive reaction of the crowd, singing along every song, following Bono shouts of "Briosa" at the intro song, honouring the home based football team who plays this stadium, which lead the home crowd to craziness. The band early on the day visited the city Coimbra, and Bono told the audience what U2 have done if they had gone to the local University.


Almost as good as a soundboard.
Recording: "Drew's 2-Source Matrix" - 4.5 stars


Fantastic night, starting with Bono screaming Briosa, Briosa at Return of the Stingray, shouts "can you hear me" during Crazy Remix, and everyone responds with loud roar, he says "Malta fantástica" before Streets. All songs are performed well, with excellent performance by band and Bono. Magnficent was...Magnificent with its city starting vocal in clear Portuguese; Lisboa, Porto, Braga...Coimbra led to craziness. Still haven´t found was amazing...Miss Sarajevo is surely his best performance ever of the song. Hopefully we will see U2 like that on 2015!


Having seen U2 in Dublin July 25, 2009, which I thought was one of their best performances ever, in Coimbra 2010, they seemed more relaxed and crazy. Strangely, Coimbra crowd was even crazier than the Irish one in Dublin. Overall, U2 seemed like Port Wine; getting better with age!
