U2, 2010-10-03 - Estádio Cidade Coimbra, Coimbra

Sun, Oct 3, 2010 in Coimbra, Portugal @ Estádio Cidade Coimbra

I slept outside the stadium for the second night to see this second U2 show in Coimbra.

We had 1 band before U2 ("Interpol").

The band was Interpol. They played for 45 minutes. I hate them.

Finally was time for U2. They started the show at 21h48 and played for 132 minutes.
Live debut of Boy Falls From The Sky, performed as a special surprise in honour of Coimbra's very enthusiastic reception of U2. The song, written by U2, features in the Broadway stage production Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark.
For the first time ever, U2 perform in Portugal twice on the one tour. The Coimbra shows were initially listed as the final dates of U2's 2010 European leg - the first show was included in the initial announcement on 24 September 2009, and this second show was added on 20 October 2009. Coimbra lost its status as the final city of the leg on 30 November 2009, when the 8 October 2010 concert in Rome was confirmed.
