Fun U2 Atlanta factoid of the day

Recommended Posts

This morning is the public onsale of U2's first concert in Atlanta in 9 years.

That concert was held at the Georgia Dome.

The Georgia Dome was just imploded this morning. 

Just a fun little factoid that just dawned on me.

Hope to see everyone in May!  :)

I watched the implosion live this morning. I went to every U2 show at the Georgia Dome. They were the first concert in the brand new Dome back in Sept 1992. I remember Bono commenting on the new building and saying, I hope y'all can afford it.

Funny thing is, the NEW stadium almost looks like the 360 stage... If it were a football stadium.

I was at all those shows too.  Very fond memories from my shows there.  In 1992, that's where my now husband told me he loved me for the first time.

Aw! That's awesome! I was 13, and my older brother had just returned from Desert Storm and took me to the show. My mind was blown! :D That was the night I became the mega fan I am now.
