The last time I saw U2 in Chicago was on the 360 tour.  I have always said that show felt more like a party than a concert and ranks as one of my favorites of all time.  My second time to see U2 in Chicago was Saturday night and it was also amazing but in an emotionally charged way. The band sounded phenomenal and the images on the screen were breathtaking. There were songs that I never thought I'd hear live and I cried multiple times. In fact, I started crying during "Running to Stand Still", just knowing that "Red Hill Mining Town" (one of my favorite songs of all time) was coming up next and didn't stop until Red Hill was over. I would say Exit is definitely the show stealer, with Adam's bass and Larry's drums so thunderous that you could feel it.  It was also an emotional evening for me because I finally let my daughter do GA, which she had been asking for for several years.  We were 3 rows back from the top of the bstage tree and she absolutely loved the experience.  The only thing that makes me a bit sad is that they didn't play "A Sort of Homecoming" that night.  Hoping I'll finally get to hear that one at one of my next shows.

U2 performed flawlessly.  Sounded great as usual and the Screen was amazing!  I've seen other concerts at Soldier Field before, and didn't sound good, but U2 sounded incredible!  The G.A. line up did not have anyone from Fan Club to assist with line up and heard bracelets were given out on Friday, but info. was posted line up wasn't suppose to start until 6am on Sat.  We got in line at 10am and didn't sit up against others in gated area that was wider than the thinner line area.  Others came later in afternoon and cut in front of us and security didn't know anything or assist. Soldier Field did not check the bracelet/numbers-disappointed in that. Thankful no issues, but didn't get as close as getting there so early.   I can't wait it the next concert!
