Great post cantgetenoughu2!  8)  Straight from the heart and I couldn't agree more!   

I was there too and like you have been a fan for a very long time.... Chi1 was my 4th U2 concert and I would like to thank the band too!  It was very uplifting, inspiring, and freakin' awesome to be there with friends I've met here on this board, and share in this concert!  We totally rocked out and had a blast, and it'll be something I treasure for many years to come.   And the range of emotions I had during the concert and songs still resonates. So, yes, Thank you U2 and for all that you've given us!  I look forward to the closer in Vancouver!   :)

CGE! That filled my eyes with tears!

 What a gift!

Remember when we got to the show on Sunday and we said "this has been the most fantastic weekend ever, it can't get any better than this" and then it DID!


I am still speechless over Sunday's show............

CGE, I too was at Chicago 1 and 2 and agree with you 100%! Spot on! Sunday was personally the best U2 show I have ever been to!
Great flow and a little history too! (YBR!)

Beautiful CGE!!

Chicago 1 and 2 reminded me so much of the first time I saw U2 - TUF 1985. It was as if I was seeing them again for the first time.

It may have helped that on each night I was lucky enough to share the evening with someone from the OLC - each had never seen the band live before.

I have been a fan since the early 80s and will continue to be a fan.  U2, I have grown up with you and you have played an important role in my life. I will continue to support you by paying for your music and attending your concerts.........Thank you for the memories of yesterday and for the memories of tomorrow.

I'll see you in NYC!!

Thanks! The one on the bridge was near the end of Magnificent. I switched my camera to video of the entirety of YBR (up on youtube now)
