They guys played 22 songs with a good mix of their recent stuff and their old classics. Even with the size of the stage and the crowd, there were times when it seemed intimate. Especially when Bono and The Edge played a couple of tunes acoustically. Of course there were some political messages delivered throughout the show, but that is something I have come to expect from Bono and the boys. The messages were pretty quick and to the point. There were no mentions of the US president except for the fact that President Obama’s sister was in the house. The messages were about Aids, Africa, Iran, and the imprisoned Burmese leader. Again, those types of messages should be expected since Bono and the entire bands involvement in causes all over the world.Overall it was an incredible experience and an amazing show, I feel lucky to have been there to see it all go down. I hate the way I was allowed to go though! My good friends Spencer and Kelly were suppose to go, but their little girl was sick and Kelly decided not to go to the show. So a special thanks goes out to Spencer and Kelly for allowing me to go in Kelly’s place.
Rock and Roll!
