Even though I recently moved from Nashville I knew I had to come back to see my favorite band in the city where I had spent the last eight years. It was a long wait but in typical U2 fashion they made every second worth it. This was my fourth U2 show and arguably the best I've seen yet.

For starters, the owners of LP Field missed a MASSIVE opportunity by not hosting this show. I honestly cannot even imagine what they were thinking but Vanderbilt provided an intimate experience and thankfully came through. The GA line was actually pretty smooth and my friend and I had no trouble getting in and scoring a spot about ten yards from the catwalk. Seeing Bono and boys that close was just surreal and created some fantastic moments. Despite the heat the crowd was enthusiastic and clearly glad to see the band back after nearly thirty years.

I was excited to see Florance + the Machine and she didn't disappoint. They sounded great and really helped build the audience up. By the time U2 took the stage the crowd was electric and the energy never died down. I was pleased to hear "The Fly" make a return and rarities like "Zooropa", "Scarlet", and "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me" sat well alongside the hits and more popular songs. However, hearing a bit of "The Wanderer" was beyond amazing and totally floored me. Add to that the last-minute addition of "All I Want Is You", complete with the inclusion of an audience member, and it was nothing short of stunning and made the night that much more special.

I have yet to be disappointed by a U2 show and they're still at the top of their game. I can't say thank you enough.
