Last night's show was nothing short of spectacular, although I would expect nothing less of U2. These guys know their stuff and I have yet to find myself disappointed or let down. They just seem to be getting better and better.

Snow Patrol was a great opening act and they sounded extremely tight. They seemed to be having a great time and they really got the crowd going.

The main show itself was amazing. I didn't know too much about The Claw going in and it's much better that way because it's constantly throwing surprises at you. Just when it seemed like all of the lights and effects had been used, something new would come along. The lights during "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)" were incredible and one of the highlights of the show. You simply have to see it to believe it.

The set was a good mix of hits and fan-favorites. "Ultraviolet" was a definite highlight and it was great to finally hear "The Unforgettable Fire". "Where the Streets Have No Name" was excellent as always and the new material sounded great. I was amazed at how much of the crowd seemed to be singing along with the new songs, especially during "Unknown Caller" and "No Line on the Horizon". The real treat of the night was "Bad", a song I was hoping for but figured we wouldn't get. As soon as the opening chimes began the entire stadium erupted and the band didn't disappoint.

The concert was mind-blowing and arguably the best U2 show I've seen yet. However, the GA sections were a real hassle. I was about 20 yards in front of the stage and could hardly see a thing half of the time due to people, mostly tall, crowding in. If you're short, as I am, be prepared to miss a lot of great photo and viewing opportunities because it seems that everyone over 6 feet crowded to front and blocked the rest of us out. I noticed that many of these people arrived late and shoved their way forward ahead of those of us who had been there for hours. Everyone has a right to enjoy the show and those people are no exception; however, I expect better from my fellow U2 fans and many of these people were rude and arrogant about their behavior. If you're tall, PLEASE be mindful that not all of us have the luxury of being able to see everything as well as you do. Being so close to the stage was awesome but I know I missed a lot of great moments because I couldn't see, and several fans around me seemed to suffer the same problem. Most of the people I met were wonderful but you're always going to have people who try to ruin the experience, whether they mean to or not.

Overall, this show was everything I'd hoped it would be. The band was solid, the stage was dazzling, and the atmosphere was unbelievable. The show in Atlanta can't come fast enough.
