U2 Concert in Montreal (Saturday)
I was wondering if the Saturday show would be different from the Friday show and...Yes it was! I had to do some Googling, but beside the tweaked set list some other notable things that night:
- Concert audio is streamed live on U2.com
- Audio quality is amazing for the show
- Bono sings a bit of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah
- Bono adds the improvised 'shine like stars' coda at the end of With Or Without You...Apparently this is "rarely" sung in recent tours (first time this year it seems; it's almost like an Easter egg), which is why it was a hot topic on Twitter...
- Julia Roberts is at the show
- Annoying teen in front me jumping like a nutcase is also at the show
- And no rain! Perfect concert weather actually...
Update: Decided to help people a bit since, a number of people are stumbling on this post...The only Julia Roberts in Montreal picture I found online (of the back of her head) was not at the show, but at a private U2 after party from a (French) news site. At least it confirms she was in town. Apparently Colin Farrell was also at the show, according to the article.
I also posted another video (the black truck blocks the view of half of the "stadium") of the crowd and a couple of pictures from U2's Saturday concert.
