I only did the one Japanese show, Tokyo 2. But it was great. The crowd was much louder than at the Aussie shows (I'm sure being indoors, & much closer helped too).
Of course you judge the crowd by those directly around you, but it was awesome where we were at the top of the tree stage. We had a great party going on with the Japanese girl behind us, she was just about losing her mind! Looking up in the stands nearly everyone was in their feet. The crowd sung along to Love is Bigger a lot better than the Aussie crowds, that's for sure!
Great to have Gloria back, & be up close for that.
"Songs are the language of the spirit... the melodies are how you sing to God. It's a deep language. But they can't explain everything, because really great songs touch places that you can't explain."

During the recording sessions of Achtung Baby, the band were working on a primitive version of Mysterious Ways called 'Sick Puppy'. During these versions, The Edge improvised a chord progression that the rest of the band worked with. From that chord progression the song 'One' was born, ultimately changing the outlook of the sessions and more importantly, keeping the band together.
