Toronto, Ontario: Toronto fans may change the name of this tour stop to the U2 Dreams Come True stop for a few fans U2 departed from the norm and changed a few peoples lives forever. U2 has always been about their fans. This tour happens to be a bit different.
This tour seems to be about making some dreams possible. The band may not even know that a few of their fans have a couple of U2 experiences that they would like to have in their life time. Or maybe they do? Either way the Toronto shows had a few dreams come true. As we reported earlier about Mark Baker A.K.A @U2BROTHR and his band Acrobat and their opening night performance.
To fans and the band amazement they killed it. Bono and The rest of the band can be spotted watching off stage with smiles. Well you would have thought that would have been the end of surprises. No a chance. U2 fans should not assume anything.
The band second night performance introduced Stephanie This fan played the guitar with the band for not one song but two. She played "Angel Of Harlem" and "All I Want Is You" Which she killed it ! It was a very emotional performance and you could tell that she knew this was a once in a life time experience. Maybe that's what this tour really is about. Experiences that take your breath away.
This was a departure from the original set list which we received earlier in the evening and our Editor squashed our attempt to share it via social media. "The one thing I know is that a printed setlist is and has been always subject to change without notice he said"
Well so true it was. "The Crystal Ballroom" did not make an appearance and the set continued as printed. U2 moves on to Boston and New York to close out this leg expectations are high. This North American leg has been full of surprises, heartache, tears, laughter and dreams coming true.
