U2 at the Point

Had the good fortune to come across tickets for the U2 gig in the Point, very unexpectedly. I hadn’t seen them live for a good few years since they placed Croke Park, which wasn’t a great experience because the venue isn’t suited to it and we spent a large part of the night trying to get to somewhere we could actually see the whole stage. Anyhow, the gig in the Point was great, they played maybe 2 1/2 hours, even song a hit. Bono is an easy target for slagging off, but I had to admit that every song was a hit and he sang beautifully. The fact that they can play for so long and not one dud amongst the songs is a real testament to their endurance. Terrific gig, great music, great visuals. Edge is my hero 🙂
