They're more important than any preachers. They're more important than any motivational political leaders. The four lads from U2 accomplish what those others can only aspire to do. They lift the soul and let it fly. From the opening moments of Elevation until the final notes of Walk On it is non-stop inspiration. This show was just amazing. Bono's voice was on and his spirits were high. Edge, Adam and Larry were very on last night as well. The whole show was a highlight but I'll point out some specifically memorable moments. During "A Little While", Bono pulled a girl on stage who was holding a Ramones shirt in her hand. He made her put it on and then they sung the last few lines of the song together. Then he let her sing by herself and thank god, the girl was able to carry a tune. The opening notes of Bad send chills down your body, through your body and across your body. I don't know if there is a better feeling, other than having a child born, then when the opening notes of Where the Streets Have No Name ring out and Bono whips the entire crowd into a jumping, screaming frenzy. Wow. At the end of Bullet the Blue Sky, Bono said something along these lines. "Into the arms of America. On closed circuit T.V., from a jail cell, Timothy went into the arms of America." A chilling reference to the Oklahoma City bomber. I could go on and on, but I'll just say that at the end of the concert, I was driving home and all my worries were gone. Anything about my life that wasn't right, was removed from my brain cells. I was at peace. I don't know if the boys know how much power they weild to affect people in a such a way. All I can say is thank you and I love you.
