Just back from Hartford. The show was 99/100, that last remaining 1 point I'll share in a minute.

First, the band was excellent. And more importantly, Bono's voice was *excellent*. He consistently hit the high notes, and the only time it truly faltered was during One, but it was barely noticeable. His passion was immense, and he and the band made it a memorable night. He thanked the Albany fans by saying that the fact that they supported him while feeling ill the previous night gave him inspiration that carried over to when he woke up this morning, and it appeared to help him tonight (Hartford).

My one problem with the show? It had nothing to do with the band. The Hartford fans were excellent, accept the one damned section I sat in. I sat in the upper level (327) that is directly opposite the stage, dead on straight, looking at the band and the monitors. I was THE ONLY PERSON IN THAT ENTIRE SECTION THAT STOOD THE ENTIRE U2 PORTION OF THE SHOW. This is ***PATHETIC***.

EVERY other part of the arena was standing. Occassionally people would stand up (for Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride, I Will Follow, and Streets.) But they would sit right back down again after the song was over. If I find you, I will slap you hard.

For the first half of the main set this really was a drag for me, because I didn't feel the unity and energy of show when they played the newer material. You people, if you are reading this (and you don't have some medical problem that prevents you from standing for lengthy periods), you disgust me.

But it didn't ruin the show, U2 is and always will be U2! What a wonderful experience.
