That was the view of the Boston Herald after Tuesday's first show in the city.

'If you went to the U2 show at the FleetCenter last night and you're hurting this morning, that's because the Irish rockers laid one mother of a bear hug on you... If the band members entertained any notions about pacing themselves to make it through tomorrow and Saturday, there was precious little evidence of that in the dynamic, two-hour performance that zigged and zagged through their catalogue...'

The Boston Globe was pretty complimentary too. 'Let's face it. In our increasingly troubled times we need rock stars more than ever. Not sullen guys standing still with all the enthusiasm of someone enduring a tax audit. But bigger than life, yet graciously accessible rock stars who honestly believe in the spiritual powers of voice, guitar, bass, and drums as a means to heal the world.' More here.

Earlier on Tuesday Bono turned up for a book signing at Barnes and Noble in Boston.

Meanwhile U2.Commers who have tickets for the Boston shows are posting their reviews and photos here. (You need a subscription for access).
