Wow. Just. Wow. Everyone said my first U2 concert would be a near religious experience. They didnt go far enough. What an incredible performance. I will post a more thorough review later

I was there tonight in GA along the rail behind Larry's kit.  Awesome show!!!!  I was hoping they'd be touring something new, but it was worth to finally scream my guts out to ASOH and Little Things.  Funny thing, I'm  always on the "ban the warhorses" team on this forum but f**k they get me every time.  As much as I sigh over seeing Elevation or Pride still in the list, I'm always jumping and down with everyone else.  U2 is like pizza, all of it's good.

Like everyone else, the head scratcher is the encore.  I like MS and Ultraviolet, but not for this show.  But they're never going to have the perfect list, ever.  They could play the entire Pop album w/ Acrobat as the closer, and people would still find something that doesn't work (trolling).

It seemed like, in my section...from RHMT through MS very few people were into it at all....that's a stretch of 7 songs where people aren't really sure what the songs are.  I would bet these people came for the 1-2-3 of TJT, and also to hear BD and Elevation.  This section of the show is for us die-hards, and it showed.

As a die hard, I loved this show...I got ASOH, TJT Side 2, RHMT, UV, MS, Little Things.  It was a treasure trove.

Agreed on the fan service part. You would think that playing their most successful album would be more pandering to the casuals then a conventional set, but TJT B side is full of songs casuals will in no way recognize, so it actually probably provides equal if not more hardcore fan service then a conventional set. That, combined with ASOH, UV, make for a great show for hardcore fans.

Also i gotta say, it takes guts to end your show with a new song. New songs are generally pee pee brakes for more casual fans, so you put them smack in the middle.

Video taken last night. Might say that I prefer the second night of the two I saw! Great show.

I would switch out Ultra violet for Mysterious ways switch ASOH for Bad. I saw both night and Bad fit better in my opinion.

At the show last night and I must say the biggest surprise was Elevation.  For a song that is trashed all the time here, I was quite surprised to see how crazy the GA folks got when it came on.  I am not the biggest fan of it, but last night it really got the crowd into it.  And also makes me think they will play it until they quit.

I was standing literally about 4 feet from you to your left (towards the catwalk). I may be in some of your pictures :)

Lined up around 4:45. Got in about 25+ minutes later and am 4-5 rows behind Larry's drum kit, with solid centerish view of the main stage (which was what I would've wanted, if possible). Second night, so should be fun!visitors can't see pics , please You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login or You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
