U2 Tours (formerly part of AtU2): A Comprehensive Guide To U2’s Live Performance History

For starters, our seats were mainly behind the stage on the lower levels- so we weren't able to see the video images of Charlton Heston and the NRA. But even with that, this show was magical.

I never thought I'd hear Stay (Far Away, So Close) played live, and was completely blown away by it. The lighting was spectacular. U2 has really shown that a little can go a long way... when you're Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr.

Everyone around me had their hearts set on fire by the performance. I could see the front section of the stage as well, and among the rabid fans was a woman flashing her breasts and a guy holding out his license plate, which read "Brooklyn." Right on.

I could also see Larry Mullen Jr.'s set list he had next to his drums, so I was constantly looking over to see what song was coming up next. A nice, little behind-the-scenes compensation for not being the cat woman up on stage with the band!

But the most refreshing thing about last night was... the band felt sincere. They looked like they wanted to be there. They played like broken strings couldn't stop them from playing on.

Naturally, I wished the show was longer, just a few more songs- 40, Gone. But who wouldn't! For me, a rock show's success can be based on whether or not I jealously yearn that I was a rock star, and after last night, I'm breaking out my guitar to practice my chords once again!
