"Every time this song is played in concert and you are standing there in the crowd in front of the stage, it's a surreal moment. The energy is amazing. The guitar build up, lyrics you can insert your own meaning. It's the ultimate concert song."
Back in the 80's my mother became a U2 fan. After a while I became one too and the other familymembers enjoyed their music too. We all went to the ZooTV tour (mind blowing) and I have been going ever since.
what they said
"The Blackout, which started off its life about a more personal apocalypse, some events in my life that more than reminded me of my mortality but then segued into the political dystopia that we're heading towards now."
- Bono, 2017 (Rolling Stone)
