Flag day the Polish way
On the 5th of July 2005 at the Slaski Stadium in Chorzow, U2 played their only second ever concert in Poland to the 70’000 excited fans. Never mind the heavy rain, minutes before the showtime, what happened when The Edge hit the first notes of New Year’s Day meant that not only “The sky fell in Poland”.
The Audience stunt – the “White and Red campaign” caused lots of mouths to fall open, including the Band’s and Willie Williams’ himself.
