Not Just Another Night For U2 at MSG

New York:  Number #6 was about the Heart Beat ! In fact two of them. "Two Hearts Beat As One" made an appearance. The set list mix up had some social media followers blasting out of their chairs around the world. Troubles also made an appearance. 

On the "E" stage the setlist was "Desire. Angel Of Harlem and One closed out the evening. The final song seemed to have its challenges for the fans when Bono suggested that they take the lead. A couple of false starts and the crowd finally kicked in. The set list did not have "One" printed on it rather Streets. 

The MSG shows have been completely different that the band has run a very tight show schedule. Some fans have expressed concerns over the band failing to stop and greet and sign before entry into MSG. However the pro signers have taken over the area and really prevented fans from access to the band. In the end its always about the fans. For now its going to have to be a pass until something better can be worked. out.  

We have a special announcement coming very soon.  We have our best photographer in New York this week and we some amazing images to share with you.

The Lady and U2 Feel Ordinary Love

New York:  Higher, Higher NYC fans and U2 had the energy to raise the roof last night.

Lady Gaga joined U2 onstage last night as the band continued their eight-night residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The songstress joined the Irish rockers for a performance of Ordinary Love in her infamous high Alexander McQueen heels and skimpy attire. “It’s yourself.

Her Ladyness, Her Gaganess is here this evening. That’s a treat,” Bono said as he hugged and kissed the blonde bombshell. Taking to the piano, the New York native helped U2 rock the iconic venue – giving a breathtaking performance of the track written in honor of Nelson Mandela. At the end of the phenomenal duet, Bono was quick to praise the US beauty as a “princess” and “queen”.

“Princess, Queen, one day Woman of New York City, here with us tonight in Madison Square Garden. What a delight,” he said.
