U2 Beat Pope John Paul II Attendance

More people attended the U2 concert at Giants Stadium in New Jersey last week than turned up to see Pope John Paul II.
U2 had 84,472 sets of eyeballs watching them in Jersey, beating the record held by the Pope since 1995.
The news did not go unnoticed by Bono. "News just in. We've broken every record for attendance in this stadium including the Pope. Sorry Bruce we know it's your birthday and all," he told the crowd before adding, "I know they're knocking this place down...we likely won't be here again before the wrecking ball but it was a magic place for us as well as the Giants."
U2 will finish their North American tour in Vancouver and then take the gig on the road around the world in 2010.
Europe was confirmed yesterday. The tour will head to back to Europe for Germany, Denmark, Finland, Russia, Austria, Greece, Turkey, France, Spain and Portugal.
