"great band performance and audience; typically belgian (irish) weather, raining almost the complete concert. Joined the 360 tour in Amsterdam, Dublin and Frankfurt. Initially no tickets and interest to go to Brussels (don't like the venue) but went last minute anyway due to extra tickets the last days before the concert after stage build up. Turned out to be a great concert.
"I thought 'pop' was a term of abuse, it seemed sort of insulting and lightweight. I didn't realise how cool it was. Because some of the best music does have a lightweight quality, it has a kind of oxygen in it, which is not to say it's emotionally shallow. We've had to get the brightly coloured wrapping paper right, because what's underneath is not so sweet."
- Bono describing the difference between the "surface" of the songs to "what lies beneath".
