Comments: Bono brings a big male fan on stage for Beautiful Day, who lifts up and carries Bono. Miss Sarajevo is played for the first time since PopMart Sarajevo, 1997. Bono sings Pavarotti's operatic verse and draws loud cheers as he hits each note. Terry Lawless, U2's usually 'hidden' keyboardist, joins the band on stage for Original of the Species. That song and 40 are played for only the 2nd time in Europe this tour.
Hamish Hamilton and crew were on scene and filming bits and pieces, possibly a dry run for a shoot later this tour.
