Magnificent in Dublin (Video)

24 Jul 200943
From the opening chords of Breathe (see our clip below) to the closing seconds of Moment of Surrender, it was quite a show in Dublin tonight.

At first it felt a little different because the set up in the stadium here means the show wasn't in complete 360 but the unique Dublin vibe soon took over and the set list is going to be hard to beat.

Some stand out moments? Bono slipping into 'The Auld Triangle' after Stuck In A Moment; Edge and Bono duelling with an Irish flag on the b-stage during Until The End of the World; spellbinding new video footage of the pro-democracy protestors in Iran during Sunday Bloody Sunday; 80,000 voices singing in unison 'how long to sing this song' at the close of Bad; W H Auden's 'Funeral Blues' to mark the arrival of Ultraviolet...'

So what were your highlights? Here's the set-list to remind you. Tell us all about it below.

What a Show
Totally and Utterly enjoyed it - You have to be there to believe it - Nice one lads - See you monday ;)
We should be very proud of the lads who have really put Ireland on the map and encouraged people to travel here. One day U2 will be no longer and we'll miss them. It'll probably be a british or american band perched at the top. Enjoy them while they're here. Fintan Donnelly (Galway)
Croker Friday
Without doubt the best u2 concert that I've been at. Went to Amsterdam with friends on Monday and managed to get into the Red Zone but took my wife last night last night and it was just an epic, magic gig. There was just a very special atmosphere and the set list, sound and crowd were amazing. Cheers Dave
Dublin Friday for DVD
WOW, I have seen every U2 gig in Dublin since 87. July 24th 2009 was simply incredible. Must be brought out on DVD. It was 12 out of 10, amazing, best live performance I ever seen
MAGNIFICENT!!! Truly a remarkable performance last night. What a difference seeing them at home versus seeing them in the states. Lots more energy and enthusiasm! Well worth the trip from the Washington, DC area. Dinner at the Tea Room at the Clarence before the show made it a night to remember. Ending with my favorite song on the new album was the perfect finish!
Amazing night - Bono sounded fantastic and the show the band put on was out of this world!! One of the best shows I've seen, if not the best!!!!
yes what a show enjoyed it , and thanks. Thanks also to the For a better world. Thank you.
Amazing show
Amazing show. Bad and TUF made it for me. SBS was unreal Attn U2 fans in Dublin Support Free Iran tomorrow (a few of us visiting from USA to see Dublin U2 shows will be there): Iran Protest Sat. 25 July 1-3 pm @ General Post Office O’Connell St. Dublin Bishop Tutu supports free Iran movement Tomorrow is 40 days since Neda was murdered in Tehran - worldwide protests planned
Magnificent Elevation Makes Beautiful Da
Loved Elevation - what a return... Unforgettable Fire and Bad in the same set! Crazy was crazy but great... Can't wait until tomorrow to see how they top this? Best they can!
Cant wait for monday :)
Great stuff,
wow, what a great show, U2 ---> let The Edge bring back that epic EPIC solo played during With or Without You that was heard in the ZooTv Tour
First time in Croke park in 22 years, not since the Joshua Tree tour. One hell of a show. Uncynical, unashamedely fantastic. The Aul Triangle was almost as good as Luke Kelly - almost! The crowd singing "40 how long..." at the end of Bad. Sunday Bloody Sunday in Croke Park, choked on the lump in my throat. Remix of I'll go Crazy had as much energy as a mini-rave. Great to meet people from all over the world. Great to be Irish tonight!
Perfect Timing...
Getting off the DART on the way home. There was a rolled up newspaper stuck in the shelter. Feeling it would be significant I took it out. Sure enought on the front page by the masthead, was the headline: U2 Exclusive. Picking up that paper caused me to pause on the platform & hear the simple, beaultiful "One" - one love.... Thanks guys & welomce back! Looking forward to being at Croker with you on Monday Night with my WOMBTWIN t-shirt.
