Tonight’s concert was way better. The crowd was less up tight and up for a party. Bono got the sense of that from early on (Edge almost falling over during NYD caused a bit of a giggle within the band).
It was a terrific time. I sat next to some great fans from NZ and Aussie.

U2 named their How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb album like that because Bono envisioned the bomb as his father and the songs as efforts by him to deal with his father's death.
