    It was a muggy July Saturday evening in Nashville, TN, but the 45,000 rock music fans that gathered in Vanderbilt Stadium to see U2 perform didn’t seem to mind at all.   Mike Arnold and Tom Thompson were there to capture the live U2 concert experience in person to bring the excitement to the fans in their audio podcast.

    U2 with their special guests, Florence and the Machine, thrilled the fans with their hits and popular concert tunes.  Florence and the Machine performed about a 40 minute set that was well received before Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen, and Adam Clayton took the stage in style and stayed there performing standards from their history catalog for about two and a half hours.

    The huge stage, known as The Claw, took up half the football field as if Aliens had landed their spacecraft in the stadium.  The stage lights and video screen were undescribable as smoke and special lighting effects were a major part of this production.

    There was a surprise as Bono portrayed Johnny Cash in the song, “The Wanderer” and discussed the sweet spirits of June and Johnny Cash. 

    There was also a major surprise at the end of the night as Bono pulled a fan on stage who happened to be holding a sign that read, “Blind Guitar Player, Pull Me Up.”  The fan from Arizona wanted to play a song for his wife Andrea.  Bono had the road crew to strap his guitar on the fan and he began to play “All I Want Is You,” as Bono sang and the rest of the band slowly joined in.  At the end of the song Bono gave the big fan his guitar.  What a heart!
