Fantastic show tonight! Mich, it was nice to meet you. I was the guy in the loud Hawaiian shirt. 

 

Bono paid tribute to Leonard Cohen tonight by asking the lights to get turned off, and singing a snipped of Cohen's Suzanne while the crowd turned on their cellphone cameras. It was a beautiful thing. I'm getting a little misty thinking about it.

I take a LOT of photos at concerts. I've gotten into the habit of dimming the screen on my camera so as not to annoy anyone else, but yeah. I do take a LOT of photos. This one that I snapped tonight is, hands down, my favourite pic I've ever taken. IMG_9166.JPG.f9550c31075d11dcf16dbb7b9cff9033.JPG

After taking this shot, Bono was singing One. The ladies around me and I were singing right back at him. I raised my camera to take another photo, but he turned around quickly. I think he may have been anticipating a flash, but I never use the flash during shows.

Great photos! Hopefully I'll get to look through all of mine a little later.

My feet are still sore from the torture I put them through Friday. This whole general admission game is clearly a game for those a little younger and a little more in shape than myself, LOL! But I'm glad I had the time to be able to commit to the general admission experience. This was the first concert in about ten years that I attended alone. Most shows, I'll take my wife. On the off chance I'm seeing an act that my wife has no interest in seeing, or that she's already seen on a particular tour, I'll often take my sister or a friend, but in this case, i decided to go solo. my wife saw the tour in Chicago, and had no interest whatsoever in lining up.

I was concerned about feeling claustrophobic with a ton of people so close, but one of the advantages of a rail spot is the fact that you're standing on a metal plate. It's actually really awkward for the people behind you to step on that plate with you, so they have no choice but to give you some space, lol.

The folks around me in the lineup and on the floor were fantastic. I've already forgotten the name of the woman to my left... she was wearing a dress that had been fashioned out of an original Joshua Tree t-shirt. To my right was Steph from Burlington, with whom I started out on the wrong foot with as she was making a B-line for the exact spot I was on the tree stage. We quickly became acquainted, though, and put the nastiness behind us. She gave me the greatest compliment as we were waiting between The Lumineers and U2. "Joe, you are so chill right now. I have to tell you, it's making ME chill, too!" (she was a little anxious between sets) These wonderful ladies were also kind enough to make sure my rail spot was still there when I made my way through the crowd to get a pizza slice and a cider.

Just saw that they played The Little Things That Give You Away at Foxborough last night. This was my second time seeing the tour, and the second time they've played the new song the night after I saw them. Thanks, guys. ;)

That was my friend Katie in the dress! So we were just a couple of people apart.

I shared the photo I took of the dress to my Facebook friends. It was quite a hit. I caught my wife eyeing my collection of concert t-shirts. :lol:

Hey, I'm a little late here. Still recovering! My brother and I had GA numbers 40 and 34 in the original numbering so we were able to situate ourselves on the barrier in front of Adam.

 

A couple short video clips:

With Or Without You

Exit
