Was at MSG 2 in GA (South)

 

My wife and I were there with our 2 kids (ages 8 and 9)

 

After I spent the first 5 or so songs alternating which tyke got a piggyback to see the boys one of the MSG security/host guys tapped me on the shoulder and......escorted me to the riser on the south side of GA.  Where the kids got to hang out and (much more easily) see the show.

 

Did I mention that I believe Ali, Eve and Eli were all up on the riser too?

 

so.....uhh......yeah.  That was pretty MOFO awesome. :D

These were incredible shows, both of them. I was close to the main stage in the stands on Adam's side for show #1. Then, the opposite side but way up in the second last row, which did not matter at all. Different perspectives, but thrilling each time. They played October!

Did you ever get your flag back afterwards? I was across from you on the other side of the catwalk and the flag ended up with the security guy on our side and he kept trying to give it back to us, and we kept gesturing that it had to go to the other side! Not sure if there was ever a resolution there. But very cool moment.

I was at night 1&2. First, a big thank you to U2.com. I am a subscriber and the tickets that were set aside for us were just amazing! Night one I was on the rail on Adams side and I've never had better seats for a show. Night two, we were a section over towards the side of the stage and 12 rows back. Still great seats. The band was amazing. The new material is very strong and Gloria,October,and Electric Co sounded fresh. My only gripe is Bono's rant after BTBS. My wife is current NYPD, I am former law enforcement and it really hurts to see Bono saying "Hands up, Don't shoot", particularly because it's been proven that it never happened. If Bono wants to champion police brutality, thats cool, just make sure it's based on something factual. Two uniformed NYPD officers below us on the side of the stage night one actually walked out. In any case, we still had an amazing time. I've now seen the lads 8 times since the Elevation tour and four times on I&E. Thanks again to U2.com for the amazing seats.

My wife and I were at the first two nights in MSG.

First time we have been able to see the band since 2001.

 

(My wife and I met each other in 1992 when U2 was rehearsing in Hershey Stadium!)

 

Both shows were amazing!  High point was Bad on night 2, my favorite U2 song.

 

So happy we got to see them again.  Hoping they do a stadium tour next year so we might be able to get tickets for our kids.

Hello! Does anyone have pictures of the Bono outside MSG on Saturday, 7/18 in NYC? I was lucky enough to meet him and haven't had any luck looking through hashtags to find myself in other's photos. If you, or anyone you know, has photographs of this meet and greet, can you please post them here? It would be amazing to see this moment documented! video will do too! Thank you!
