I've been to alot of concerts, and I've seen alot of special effects, but nothing could have prepared me for POPMART! It was an amazing show, and even with all the lights and gadgets, U2 still rose above and gave the near sold-out Georgia Dome crowd what really mattered to them: the music.

Pride was an especially moving song and Where the Streets Have No Name was fantastic. Mofo really got the show started well I think, and I loved hearing all those great 80s songs like I will Follow, New Years Day, and Sunday Bloody Sunday. Being just five or six days after their friend Michael Hutchence, lead singer of INXS, died in Australia, I could see on the big tv screen Bono wiping tears from his eyes at the end of With or Without You. Then, as they ended One, Bono started talking about Michael and how much he meant to the band. Then came 40. They haven't played this song in a long time, but they played it in Georgia last night and it was great. Right as the band left the stage, the lights came on and the speakers started playing "I was standing... you were there... (how touching!) A great song by INXS proved to be the real closing song of this concert, perhaps the best I will ever see unless U2 decide to top themselves on their next tour or Pink Floyd goes back on the road.
