100,000 Catalonian fans sing Happy Birthday to The Edge

Clad in a red FC Barcelona shirt given to him by Bono during Party Girl, The Edge finished U2’s show at Barcelona’s Nou Camp shortly after midnight… making it his birthday. Earlier during the show, 100,000 ecstatic Catalonian fans had sung Happy Birthday to him and released 17.000 red balloons in his honour. (OK, so maybe 100,000 fans is an exaggeration, but it looked like more than 80,000.)
