U2360 – Olympic Stadium – Athens, Greece
Bono talks about the similarities between the Greek and the Irish… both broke and capable of ‘godlike genius’ and in an impassioned speech tells the Greek, “we are not defined by financial targets.” He introduces the band as Greek gods and heroes: The Edge is Odysseus, Larry is Apollo, Adam’s Zeus and Bono is Alexander the ‘motherfucking’ Great. Stingray is the only new song played in this country that’s been starved of U2 live since PopMart Thessaloniki, 13 years ago. It’s a great gig with probably one of the loudest, most enthusiastic audiences on the tour so far.
