U2 in Berlin, 29.July 2001

We arrived the concert station around 11am, it was very hot weather and about 120 fans were waiting already, we just take our place in the masses ;-) there and sit down ...! unfortunate at 1pm it started to rain like crazy together with a terrible thunderstorm which seems not to end and we all were already afraid to see the gig fallen out because of the terrible weather, as the concerts was an open air show. we all went wet, it was terrible, I had nothing (!) dry on my body more, all my clothes were wet and i felt the rainwater runing all over me ;-). around 6pm the doors were open to run to the stage, it was like an wonder as in this moment the weather had changed and the sun was back for good, I was so damn reliefed ;-)! about 22000 fans were coming and at 9pm finally the real gig started with "elevation" ...lord it was so great as the edge, Larry, Adam and bono came on stage of course I just was damn happy and got out of control for a while ;-)))! there was a "heart"  way from the stage in the masses where the guys could walk over, so everybody could see the band very close. how exciting ;-)))! BONO is such a small man I always thought he would be more taller ;-) anyway he made a very rocky performance, just like we all know from their videos. the edge often joined him with
his guitar and for me the two are like Dave and Mart ;-). they played:

Elevation, Beautiful Day, Until The End Of The World, New Years Day, Kite, Gone, New York, I Will Follow, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of, In A Little While, Desire, Stay, Bad, Where The Streets Have No Name, Mysterious Ways, The Fly, Bullet The Blue Sky, With Or Without You, One, Wake Up Dead Man, Walk on

...about 2 hours long been the show and I was highly impressed by the band!
