  1. Thank you, Jay!
  2. And the A/C on, I hope!
  3. Any ideas on whether it will be open or closed? Is it going to be a billion degrees in there with 900% humidity?
  4. I'll be in Dallas too. It will be my 16th show. I've never heard "40" live - in person. If they played it for us, I'd cry happy tears.
  5. I think I've already said this in another thread, but it is possible to take photos and / or do a live stream without bothering anyone. Hold the phone at eye or chest level, hold your elbows in (this will give you more stability with the camera, too), tilt it upward and do your thing. I streamed part of a concert a few months ago (it's a relatively unknown band and I think they deserve more recognition, so my intention was to hopefully let others see how cool they are). No one's view was obstructed in the process. Also, I didn't stare at the phone the whole time either. I held it in place and glanced down a few times to make sure everything was still in focus.
  6. Ugh! These "smart" phones have made us do some stupid things! For example, watch people driving while they talk on their phones (or worse, texting while driving)! Sorry for the rant, but I can definitely see how that would affect someone performing. Looking into a sea of people who are staring down at their phones. I think some people need an intervention for phone addiction. I see parents ignoring their kids while the talk, text, etc. It's pretty sad. Okay, enough already, but you get the idea. I will have my eyes on the band (and the screen, and the whole experience in general). Hopefully, my husband will snap a few pics for me.
  7. Is it just me, or does this tour feel different from previous tours? It seems like the band isn't connecting with the audience as much as they have in the past. No dancing with fans on stage. Not as much talking between songs. For me, this makes it feel like they're kind of just "going through the motions." Almost like they want to get the show over with ASAP. Is it just me, or are there others who feel this way? I'm not saying I won't enjoy the show - and I'm grateful to see them performing again! It's just that something seems off and I can't completely explain what it is... They don't seem as happy or energetic either. Especially Bono. It has even made me wonder if his health is okay.
  8. Does anyone have any parking recommendations? I've never been to NRG Stadium. From what I've read, they're not even going to open the parking lot (lots?) until 3 PM. Would it best to take a cab / Uber / Lyft to get there? We'll be driving in from Dallas, but we were hoping to get there fairly early to wait in line. TIA!
  9. Many of you may already be aware of this, but I didn't know. Someone posted it on one of the Facebook groups I belong to:
  10. I hate it, too. It is possible to record video and take pictures without blocking everyone's view. Hold the camera at eye-level. Please stop blocking the view of other people.
  11. Ultra Violet is also my fav!! 
  12. This idea made me laugh! I seriously wanted to do this at a Pixies concert I went to a couple weeks ago. I'm already shorter than everyone - now I have to try to dodge the [expletive] phones, too...?
  13. StinkyJay, I will be in RZ Houston, too! I promise I won't hold a phone up and block your view! However, I will be wearing the highest heels my feet will tolerate so that I can see over the tall men.
  14. Oh, yes. Very true. Maybe those people are just tagging along with the real fans?
  15. What did I miss?
