First of all, love the backwards 2U banner!


efdeat, I saw them on the Boy tour at the Bijoux in Philly. My boyfriend, Steve, talked me into crawling out my bedroom window to see them. He was a fan, I didn't know them that well then. It was a large gay audience and Steve and I were overwhelmed by the dozens of people around the band when they were done so we left. If only I had known!

Bloom and Beli, I would *love* to see this one live.  I think it could compete with, say, Elevation, for getting things going.

Beli, I think I remember reading your story now . . . soooooooooo luckyyyyyyyy!!!  :)

OK it is a riot that security can keep fans at bay by holding up their hand. This is how you can tell U2 was just on the edge of greatness here.

I love the urgency of Bono's performances back in the days when there was more of that element of not knowing that everyone would be won over...

(but then, I also love the way he can work a crowd with such ease these days too...)

ALSO: Love, love, love, the moments where he raises his hands over the audience in this video!

An interesting forum sidenote-- ocean's avi is actually a shot from the first time she saw U2, also on the Boy tour.


I love seeing the joy in their faces as they perform. They really love being together and what they do. Not every band does.

Would this concert not make a sweet Broadway show???

Two Hearts is coming.

How about all the times he turns his tushy to the audience?  That's confidence right there.  :)  Ditto to Beli and Bloom re: the joy and urgency. 

I knew about Ocean seeing U2 in Albany on the Boy tour.  You two should have special pins or jackets or something.

Larry OWNS this song.

Adam . . . you are so dreamy in this gig . . .

It's like they all have the same internal metronome, and they watch each other to make sure they stay together.

Bono's hair is starting to fall. He did fight the good fight in that regard.

Re. ocean's avi - cool! I must check it out!

Yeah, that's what makes them so magnetic for me. And there's so many moments where their timing is so in sync with each other, even when it's during some break or transition, it's like their minds are connected or something. I love that. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that they learned to play their instruments with each other rather than alone..

Oh man...is the shirt about to come off? IT IS!

*sighs happily*
