Is it just me, or was that about the least animated Bono's been while performing Vertigo...?

Still nice to be able to see it. :)

It was great to see the boys again, if only for those two songs - "Vertigo" and "Streets." I like Bono's Lennon-like shades. It's a nice change from his usual. Still hate that Castro hat though. Edge had the sexiest shirt like guh! Adam and Larry also looked quite scrumptious.

Bono wasn't his usual jumpy self mostly because the audience was so FAR away from them IMO ... I'm not sure if he's used to playing live like that... usually their audience is only a couple of feet away not yards. It was nice to see Edge pogo. Plus Bono at least struck a pose on the steps with Adam coming down the stairs a little too.

I think the best surprise was having "Wake Up" play before they started... ahhh, sweet memories. :)

To be fair, I think there's a limit to how animated you can safely get when you're prancing up and down a big flight of steps. ;)  I was more bothered by how much Bono was having to strain his voice... and yeah, that hat...

The Bono-and-Edge synchronised bouncing was funny, though, as was the moment Bono spotted the webcam and gave it a wave. *g* Can't believe they only played two songs after all that build-up!

XD I was so afraid he was gonna fall down the stairs.

They just tried to play a replay of the performance on the Cannes-cam but the audio was messed up, so they said they'd try to fix it and replay it when they could.

And it appears they're doing that now!
