best moment of my week: U2 Concert

Best moment of my week:  Hands downs, the U2 Concert Tuesday night at the Rice Eccles Stadium. 
I had no preconceptions although I've heard they put on quite the show.  Um, major understatement.  I've tried comparing it to any of the other concerts I've been to, but I've never experienced anything quite like it.

I had chills when Bono and the rest of the band walked on stage for the first time.
I was awed by this iconic band's ability to go beyond the show and create an entire atmosphere.
Starstruck by Bono and his leather pants and sunglasses and charm.
Touched by his humility and sincerity as he thanked his crew and fans and his sincere apology for cancelling the show last year while he had back surgery.
Inspired by his efforts to make a difference in the world.  {And not because it is good for his image.}
Overwhelmed by the flood of memories that came with hearing some of my all time favorite songs.
Completely caught up in the moment.

Thank you U2.

  3. wasnt it amazing!! angie and i were dancing the whole time!!!!

  4. love them & i would love to see them!

  5. that's awesome. i actually bought tickets a couple years ago when they were supposed to do a show last summer. it was a part of dannon's 30th birthday gift. but then bono hurt his back and the show was postponed until this summer. that means we can't go. sniff! we were still going to try to make a trip up there for it, but now i have a job and have to work, and dannon has an interview here that day. alas! i'm glad someone i know got to see a u2 show and that you had such a great time!

  6. My husband came home with 2 FREE tickets to that concert. It was a blast!
