Five days earlier I'd gone to see them at the Garden, thrown my beach ball on stage...basically had a religious experience. This was like an added bonus to get to go see them again! Foxboro, on the field-general admission-hell. The gates weren't open when we first arrived, so we stood in a crush of people that just kept growing. We heard the sound check, got squashed in the crowd. Finally they let us in.

The Pogues with Shane still lead singer opened up. It doesnt get any better than that. A misty rain stopped, a drunken Shane puking on the stage in the middle of a song, The Maestro tossing the accordion up in the airso cool. I miss Shane and the Pogues. It just seemed so fitting to be seeing an irish band on a misty rainy day, with the rocking punk/traditional irish band opening up for them.

Bono had fallen off the stage at the previous concert (I think it was down in NJ) so his arm was in a sling. There were cameras filming the whole show, so we were lucky enough to have Edge and Bono coming right down near us to mug for the camera. I think it ended up as footage for Rattle and Hum.
General Admission was a pain, this girl with about 20 earrings in one ear kept trying to shove in front of me. That kind of sucked, but it was still a good show.
