Another U2 show that didn't disappoint. And to think that I almost didn't get there. By luck and chance, a friend of mine won the tickets on a local radio station in Providence RI and asked me to attend the show with him. This was his first concert and my third. (It's always fun being with someone who's never been to the show before. They never know what to expect. My friend told me afterwards that he felt as if he had been to church and I told him that wasn't far from true.)

The setlist was awesome, especially opening with "Love and Peace" and the band coming out with spotlights during the opening riffs. Apparently, Bono didn't mind the weather Boston had been seeing all week. "You must want to remind us of home." I had no gripes whatsoever with the main list or the encore. All the smash albums - All That You Can't Leave Behind, Acthung Baby, The Joshua Tree, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb - were all very well represented.

The greatest testament I can give as to how a U2 concert affects people is whether or not they have a certain song/image stuck in their heads long after the show is over. All I can say is that I write this review two nights after the show and I can still hear the beats of Larry Mullen's drums, the deep sounds of Adam Clayton's bass, the riveting riffs from the Edge - who can make a guitar sing like no one else I have ever heard -, and the sweet angelic voice of Bono.

If I had the chance, I would love to thank U2 personally for all they have done for me in my life. However, this is probably the closest I'll get so I'll just say that this show topped the shows I attended 4 years ago in Providence. I can't wait for October and December.
