Intro to One Tree Hill... Bono said that we all lose people unexpectedly and don't get to say goodbye. U2 are playing the song for a man named Greg but fill in the name of your own loved one and the song is for them all.....

Tomorrow my wife and I are leaving for PA to attend a memorial service for my mother-in-law who passed away and was cremated last week while we were back home in Ireland. When Bono said those words my wife put her arms around me and leaned her head against me. It was a powerful moment.

I felt the energy was higher and the band a little looser this second night. Wasn't sure Mysterious Ways was on track, but they pulled it out. Lost a bet at the end of that song though. Up until introducing the girl to us, Bono had not uttered the words New York. It was only that he repeated where she was from so I lost on a technicality. Now I'm on the hook for unlimited libations at my expense whenever I see my U2 bud.  Not a bad thing at all. And boy could she dance!

How did you feel people around you react to the more political staff Bono said?  A friend who was at Wednesday's show felt the crowd energy was generally low, and I concur.  Interestingly to me, on Thursday, I was with a friend way up in the nosebleed seats (just 1 row shy of the last one) and people were more warm and seemed more into the music, but in a few sections around us, when Bono got political, there were little groups of guys who would start chanting "USA, USA".  And totally agree on the woman dancing with Bono - she was a cool customer.  If you look at the comments on one of the YouTube clips of her, it appears she's been on stage a few times before.  Lucky girl!
