Glad you enjoyed it! I was down there in GA as well... nice to see Omaha for the first time in 25 years and see a good show in a decently full venue!

What happened with a wooden spoon?

I just watched 13 (Omaha) - wow, he sounds amazing.

It seems to now be in the visuals for CW. The wooden spoon weighs large in Irish parenting folklore.

If you ask why you just might get the wooden spoon.

Wow, just listened to Gloria from last night, you're not kidding!

When I read "UABRS level" I was certain some level of hyperbole was at play. Even as someone who believes they're still playing at a high level, I cannot believe how good Gloria sounded.

Of course, the video I watched it on had someone saying they didn't play with the energy they used to. Can't please everybody  ::)

The music was at the same energy. It was just that Bono was merely an energetic 58 year old rather than an amphetamine-infused 23 year old.

Ok so there is a wooden spoon (punishment?) in the flood waters (God's judgement?). Have been trying to figure out the nature of those waters but hellfire and damnation is not their style so I still don't know.

HMTM I think has them nearly drown in it and then receive the services of Screwtape and MacPhisto so those waters probably aren't God's judgement ... ?

Bono f***** up UTEOTW on the bridge. Love it.

Great review!  How were you able to get a GA ticket after the on-sale?  Did you pay face value?  Hope that is not too nosy of a question...
Could buy a Omaha GA day of show on StubHub for $52.
