U2 are renowned for being a spectacular live band. Anyone who saw their Live Aid performance back in 1985 will appreciate the stage presence and power of the man who appropriately calls himself Bono Vox. And the 60,000-strong crowd at Hampden Park last night were not disappointed.
True to the hype following two sell-out shows at Wembley on Friday and Saturday, the guys rolled into Glasgow to showcase both their new album and classic hits, including Sunday Bloody Sunday, Where the Streets Have No Name, With or Without You, Pride (In the Name of Love) and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.
As part of the finale, the lights were turned down low and a massive glitter-ball sparkled throughout the stadium as the band performed their hit One.
The loyal U2 fans were in heaven.
"It was totally spectacular. Amazing," said one.
"It was like listening to a CD the vocals were so clear," said another. "The crowd was brilliant, people were hugging each other, there wasn't a hint of trouble."
Even a technical problem with the sound could not dampen their enthusiasm. "You could see on the screens that Bono was still singing his heart out as if his life depened on it,"
