Sound: They used a guitar a bass, percussion, and a microphone. The sound was loud but still had good quality. Bono sings the opening line of 'A Day Without Me' during The Unforgettable Fire. Later, he ad-libs new lyrics in the second verse of Bad, then closes the song with a bit of 'Fool To Cry' and 1-2 lines from '40.' Jimmy Page and Lars Ulrich are among the celebrities at the show. // 9

Perfomance: The musiuc was great and thier main set was Breathe, No Line On The Horizon, Get On Your Boots, Magnificent, Beautiful Day, Until the End of the World, New Year's Day, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - Stand By Me, Stay (Faraway, So Close), Unknown Caller, The Unforgettable Fire, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (remix), Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride, MLK, Walk On, Where the Streets Have No Name, One, Bad. There was a screen that opened up and it was very interesting. // 10

Overall Impression: The concert was in England in london at wembely stadium on August 15, 2009. Glasvegas and the hours were the openers. I loved the folding screen. The best part for me was the music.And Bono turns Wembley Stadium in to the world's biggest gospel choir, as he invites the crowd to sing I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. This is U2 at their best uniting vast swathes of people in moments that transcend what anyone would expect from a stadium gig. // 10
