After a rough start (malfunctioning turnstiles, gendarmerie required at one gate?) and the screen partly going black during Zoo Station (you didn’t come all this way to watch TV now did you?) the band was in good form for the first of two shows in Paris according to our editors in attendance. U2achtung.com handed out balloons for people to blow up during the declaration animation. Everyone did and the stadium was filled with little white globes, which all went towards the stage.
Préparez pour le deuxième rond!
