It was in March 1985 when I last saw U2, also in Detroit. The connection between the group and the crowd was even better this time, and the energy, the musicianship, the VIBE, were all there- spot on. So professional and polished, so well-choreographed, the lights, the sound, made for an experience to last a lifetime. Bono gave us theater, singing and skipping 'Humpty Dumpty' after his microphone failed, and then repaired. He told the story of The Edge coming to Earth in the future in a flying saucer, and the story of Miss Sarajevo, then hitting the high notes again. Also, he wore a white headband, with 'COEXIST' written upon it. Then during 'Bullet' he made it to the mic with the headband as a blindfold. He played Larry's drums on the Elipse during 'Love and Peace' then into the into the opening beats of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. It was a two-hour show, where the entire crowd and band were as one. Thanks to Cheryl M. for re-awakening my love for U2.
