I was at the U2 show in Tulsa at the Brady theatre in 1983 (my first U2 show and still the greatest concert I have ever been to!), so this was full circle for me.  The arena was electric with it being the opening show of the tour.  Fans from all over the world were represented and the band being there a few days prior for rehearsals just added to the anticipation.  I didn't get a chance to see the I&E tour so this was all new to me and it did not dissapoint.  I did see the JT30 show twice, including the Bonnaroo show and this one was on par with that show.  As a long time fan and numerous shows, I didn't mind the omission of the JT songs and really enjoyed the deeper cuts like Acrobat and Wild Horses.  To me, the new album doesn't have a weak track on it at all and hearing 8 songs from it was a real treat, but I would have really liked to hear Red Flag Day.   I was in the Red Zone on the Edge's side near the front stage and was still able to see the entire video screen, but could not see the band at all when they were on the E stage.  More coverage of them on the screen would have been nice, but with them going back and forth, if you are on one end or the other you will miss a bit of the show, but I knew that going in.  The band seemed excited about the new material and I'm sure will get more comfortable with it as the tour progresses.  Don't miss this one if want another great U2 experience, they never disappoint!
