What followed was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve experienced at a U2 concert. With one spotlight on Edge, and another on Bono, he began to sing quietly and sympathetically, “If you, twist and, turn away ….” And as the music swelled, so did the spirit of the place, exquisite stage lighting rising and falling with the mood of the beat.

Here’s the whole article about this very emotive performance of “Bad” on the tour opener in Vancouver, including video I shot.
