I'm lucky to live beside one of the best outdoor venues in Europe . Seeing U2 play there when it was possible was beyond words for a fan .

What an amazing concert. I do wish I had been there. It is unbelievable even via dvd or a screen (when it was screened for example before 360 gigs somewhere).

"One" and "Walk On" says it all
This was the best U.S. Mother's Day present! "One" makes me cry every time. It is the message we need now more than ever. Thank you to all 4 of U2, for your brilliance with music that "lights our way", and helps me, to remember to "Walk On." I hope there's a concert at Slane Caste again- I'll be there! Happy Birthday Bono. Love all of you! CarolJ

Smile on the face!
One thing that keeps this fan of 30+ years coming back for more U2 is the sheer joy that 4 mates seem to share when performing live. This radiates through the crowd and ensures any U2 live show is an event, a gathering of like minded people having fun and being happy, and this is not to be sniffed at these days. An upside of the enforced seclusion is that the boys may come back refreshed and emboldened with more songs and an appetite to go back on the road. Happy Birthday Bono you old bugger and thanks for the many happy memories you have given me, David R. St Albans, UK

Magnificent and emotional concert!! ♥
Thanks for sharing this amazing gift!! Although ATYCLB is one of my favorite albums, this is the only tour I have missed since ZOO TV Tour, much to my regret; my father passed away that year too :( This record helped me to WALK ON in those hard days...and years. BONO, your strength, courage and mettle are worthy of admiration! I hope you and Jordan had a beautiful Birthday ♥ Thanks U2, thanks for being part of my life. And please, stay safe and healthy you all. With love from Cádiz :*

Tremendous and heartfelt
Thank you for providing this stream to celebrate Bono´s 60th birthday! With the castle in the background U2 found impressive surroundings to deliver such a memorable show in their home country. From the beginning this film captures the crowd´s enthusiasm and U2´s great musicianship. It´s heartwarming to see the joy Bono, The Edge, Larry and Adam express as they play "Desire" standing close to each other and the fans. I´m particularly fascinated by "Until The End Of The World", with Bono and The Edge creating some of the most breathtaking and ecstatic show moments. Bono´s courage to share so much of his personal life with the audience gets evident when he tells the story about how he thanked his father for lending him 500 pounds in the early days. Later a bittersweet version of "Kite" lets us feel the sorrow he had to go through after his father had passed away. From constant live classics to more rarely played gems such as "Wake Up Dead Man" this concert film brings us many moments of emotion, humanity and fun.

Thanks from.all caregivers
Bono, I'm a nurse nurse and through me, it's all my fellow U2 fans who wish you a Happy Birthday! I hope you, your family, your friends are okay. This birthday is very special for your 60th birthday...You'll remember it for a long time! We hope, as caregivers, that governments around the world realize that health care systems are bleeding. We have been working with limited or no resources... We no longer want to choose who should live and who should die for lack of means. We hope as citizens that human beings will come before profit. We hope as citizens that ecology will come before economic interests. We hope as citizens that the next world will question itself. Our present society has become obsolete. During all these weeks, very hard, the music of U2 has been my oxygen bubble. It allowed me through the concerts of the group by broadcast by fans to make beautiful encounters thanks to the live comments during the broadcast. As a fan, I hope that the values that the band has been promoting for years will be ours in the years to come... Every time there's been a hard blow in the world, you've been there... I'll never forget the concert in Paris on December 6, 2015. You took us in your arms, you gave us back the energy to forgive. Today we need you even more. We hope to see you on stage once again. We miss you so much!

Live At Slane A Great Gig
I was there it was the 1st time i had got to see U2 live. it was amazing. "Until The End Of The World" was a great standout moment. when Bono & The Edge went head to head out onto the heart of the stage. and of coarse "Out Of Control" was amazing, Bono thanked phil Linnot for letting us open the show. they were the support act for "Thin Lizzy" 20 years previous, when "Thin Lizzy headlined "Slane Castle" i am addicted to wacthing that DVD. #U2getherAtHome #Bono60
