U2: Wembley Stadium

Stephen Dalton, The Times, August 2009

WRITING ABOUT pop music, as some wag once famously remarked, is like dancing about architecture. Maybe so, but U2 spent more than two hours dancing around a stunning piece of architecture at the first British date of their latest stadium tour last night, and the effect was highly impressive. Bizarre at times, perhaps, but a qualified triumph for vaulting ambition.

Total word count of piece: 836
