U2: Live And “Crazy” In Barcelona

Maximum Performance

From all reports, U2--who've been playing together since 1976--are only improving with age.

And if the video below is any indication, those reports are entirely correct.

This performance of "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight," shot in Barcelona this June at the start of U2's megalithic 360 Tour, is as good an indication as any that the boys in the band--Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr.--have yet to lose their touch and continue to astound.

As you'll see from the clip, one of the more remarkable aspects of the current U2 show is the structure of the actual stage: It's circular, constructed to be placed at the central point of a stadium floor, around which the audience, at any angle, can see the band perform with an unsurpassed view.

The current tour--on the receiving end of much acclaim--will finish its European leg on August 22nd, then head to the States beginning with a Sept. 12th date in Chicago. Raw numbers? Incredibly, over 3 million fans will see them by the conclusion of the tour.
