Viva Las Vegas!

Las Vegas 2. Everyone who was there is saying it’s the show by which to judge all others. Well, we’re not sure about that claim, but we do know one thing: there were a heck of a lot of people other than U2 on the stage that night — fan Alli shaking her groove thing with Bono, young Lily sitting and watching the wonder on stage, Mary J. Blige bringing the house down with her performance of “One” with the band, tour manager Dennis Sheehan receiving a birthday cake and wishes, and Brandon Flowers of The Killers joining U2 to perform “In a Little While.” See it all in this little slideshow. (Alternatively, you can view the photos as a photoset.)
