"Amazing technology and visuals, plus a fabulous set and a band that is well and truly into its groove. I also love the innocence and experience album concepts and the narrative of this show; it made it felt like a complete show not just a collection of great songs. "
"Never ever tire of hearing this song as it spoke to me strongly when it was released because someone I once cared about was reportedly caught up with drugs. I almost cried when they played it in Sydney on the 360 tour."
Been a follower since seeing a video for Gloria back in '81 or '82...too long ago now to remember exactly when. First saw them in 1984 and was in the crowd when they recorded the Zoo TV concert in Sydney. Due to their absence since 360, I've flown to Vancouver for the start of JT30 and most recently saw them for both nights in London for e+i, taking my tally to 12 for now. They have provided the soundtrack to my life.
"Poland was probably the highlight of the tour. During New Year's Day I turned to find some water and when I looked back, the entire stadium, 80,000 people, had disappeared under a red and white Solidarity flag. I could hardly speak let alone sing. It was a really emotional moment for anyone who was there. They felt we had stood by them in that moment when they went on strike for democracy and wanted to show us they remembered."
