U2 360 Glasgow, August 18, 2009

Lance Armstrong attends U2’s only show in Scotland. Bono’s mike drops out during Pride and during Walk On the PA dies. The band continue playing as if unaware the audience can’t hear them. The problem is quickly fixed. The Scottish fans provide a great atmosphere and the stadium is packed. According to U2tour.de, the black market price for a GA ticket was a mere 15 pounds (lowest on this leg of the tour?) and there were very few merchandising stands.

But the actual star of this MSNBC-item of course is Alma from Sarajevo:
