what a dissappointment...my 5th vertigo show and if the standard continues like it was the other night most definitely my last. the sound system was atrocious, the show in boston was even better than this inaudible garble. it seemed to me that the band were making very little effort to connect with the crowd and bono and the edge just seemed to be failing to 'gel' all night (according to a source there was a minor argument before the show). the visuals were totally out of sync, the screen going blank even during a key section of bloody sunday and the vertigo encore. as for matt-from-canada's forunate opportunity, my friend was also holding an even larger sign proclaiming his 'desire' to play any song bono required...but even though bono clearly read the sign he ignored it and drew attention to this matt farce! i guarantee that my friend would have played anything in u2's expansive backcatalogue to a much higher standard than matt's cringe inducingly faulted rendition of party girl (he mixed b minor with b minor sus 4 three times at least)...he was even booed by a large contingent of the bomb shelter's crowd. to top off the farce of a show the vip passes that my friend and i had 'acquired' at anaheim were confinscated by security when we tried to get into the dressing rooms after the show...they even got the police involved and we were isuued an 'official warning', what a load of crap...it's not like we even did anything to bono! so as a recap...i thought the croke park show was degradingly horrendous.
