Let me start off by saying this was the first U2 I have ever been to. Although I have been a huge fan for about 6 years, this was my first chance to see them live. I waited over 14.5 hours in line to see them and I got front row,along the railing outside the ellipse. One of my first thoughts after hearing a few songs was, "this is what I expected..TIMES 10!!!" I could not believe how unbelievably good these guys are. Bono hit notes that I didnt think were possible, they coordinated with eachother like they've been doing this for over 20 years....I had chills the moment they walked on.
I could say much more, but let me give you a couple highlights.
Probably the biggest highlight was during Sometimes You Cant Make it on Your Own. As Bono was singing, he slowly walked his way around the ellipse towards where I was standing. As he approached the peak of the song (when he belts out "can-you-hear-me-when-I-sing") he just happened to stop RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME..literally 5 feet away. When he hit that high note a flood of emotion came over me. The sheere energy and passion that he put into that note was undescribable. It just made me want to cry..and I dont cry easily. There were at least 3 other moments where my eyes were watering, usually just because the energy in the building was so intense.

One other highlight was during Love and Peace or Else when Larry and Bono played the drums. Although that isnt one of my favourites from the new album, the live performance was one of the best of the show. Again, they were about 6-7 feet from me during that time.

There is much more I could say, but as you may already know, words can only explain so much to describe a U2 concert. It was simply the most amazing experience of my life.
And I get to relive it all again tomorrow.
