Chasing Cars

To more fully appreciate what's going on here, and why it's so significant to me, read about the Challenges of U2010. On top of all that, the show started late because of rain, hence all the canopies and tents on stage.

Snow Patrol opened for all eight of the European 360° Tour shows I attended. Istanbul was their last show of the tour and they wanted to do something special. They brought the U2 stage crew on stage for a fantastic take on Chasing Cars and it was the kind of magical experience I live for. From then on, all was well in Istanbul.

Needless to say, U2 had some awesome surprises to offer as well.
