'The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply...'

New Orleans Loves U2!
I'm a native New Orleanian, and deeply appreciated how you shaped the show to connect with us. On top of the Edge's incredible commitment, you're all honorary citizens. Still thinking about the show. Still moved. Extraordinary. The visuals were astonishing. So was your capacity to make the Superdome feel like an intimate space. The use of robotic cameras made the Dome feel small. Above all, the content of the performance. So many many elements that referenced New Orleans, and a specific call out for donations for Harvey. Bono reading the letter we sent to Texas. And the Herstory segment made me weep. People keep using the word spiritual, and it certainly was, but it was more. It was community, bonding, acknowledging differences, but coming together. Oh, and "Saints."

Epic Night
My 3rd, this tour, my cousins first U2 concert ever. Was a dream come true. From Florida evacuation zone to Red Zone in my home state. Loved the energy and extras including Bono's tribute to The Edge for Music Rising.

Family of four to see U2 in New Orleans!
Bringing the whole family to this concert, including two teens. Hope the wet weather stays away, so that they don't evacuate NewOrleans. Haven't seen U2 since they reopened the Superdome, for a Saints game, after Katrina. Looking forward to this !

New Orleans Welcomes You Back with Open
Finally Back in The Big Easy ... last tour was Popmart ... then Katrina almost destroyed us ... news the band was coming back brought tears and joy ... saw them back in 87 in Baton Rouge ... transcendent and cemented my love for this band and their music ... your music has been a light bulb hanging over my bed ... counting the days until 9/14!!!
