for me, Lights of Home is one of those songs that automatically entered the U2 canon and is always a delight to hear it live... like... er... right now.... =P

FINALLY!!! It's my turn to see some SOE shows! ?

OK - I have a few more, but I'm going to wait until after the DC shows are over to post them (some are really good, but are just barely too big to post).

The review to accompany the pictures is above in many parts. :lol: Enjoy!

Also, I don't know if this was the case for the other cities, but this specific shirt seems to run small.

I normally wear a large, but, in close consultation with the vendor, we agreed that XL would probably be better for me - she was right. A regular large would have been a bit too snug.

Did anyone else make the same observation?

Thanks for the info about the shirts. Sadly, by the time I arrived, they only had small and mediums left, and I wanted an XL (well, I was getting an L, until reading about your experience).

I can't complain too much, as I got into the venue for the first time at like 8:20, so just enough time to check merch, visit the boys room, and then get onto the floor right before they started playing. As per usual, showing up as late as humanly possible put me directly behind people who had been queuing all day and had numbers on their wrists in the middle of the walkway between both stages... I never bothered getting that close for i+e, so I figured I'd do it this time, and was ridiculously close to Edge and Larry at times. Fun night.

If anyone has an extra shirt, hit me up, or I'll just... forget about it, heh.

Ahhhhh...well, tonight was much better to and from the show - last night, bizarre amount of traffic going down and a grand experiment of inertia coming back (2+ hours in total); tonight, easy going down, even easier going back (barely over an hour from leaving the floor of the arena to being home). The moral of the story: if there is a baseball game on the same night as a concert, plan very, very carefully in advance...

I'll write more about both shows when I have rested up a bit. I'm tired, but very, very happy. :D

Also, I have an appeal for those who snapped pictures at either show, but especially tonight (i.e., Thursday) because I know for a fact that more were taken. If you look earlier in the thread, you'll find someone who went full-blown MacPhisto. On both nights, The Fly also made an appearance because...that was my outfit. B) The number of extended looks in the GA line outside the arena, on the floor in the arena, and even from the band during both shows, I lost count of. Tonight people went out of their way to take photos of me and even with me. So, the evidence is out there on FB, Twitter, and/or Instagram. (I'm not on any them - sorry, I'm not the biggest fan of social media).

Adam, and I'm pretty certain Bono as well, definitely noticed me yesterday (Wednesday) and grinned (I was in front of the main stage right in front of him). Tonight, The Edge, and Adam again, noticed me, and I swear even Larry made eye-contact with me twice during "Desire" (I was essentially on the rail on the e-stage tonight (Thursday)) - Bono saw me too, but chose not to linger (he must be tired of Fly-impersonators). :lol:

So, if anyone comes across a picture of The Fly from the June 14 show in Philly (or the 13th) anywhere, please let me/us know. Thank you! :Achtung_Baby_14:

(A review of shows is coming, I promise!)

(I can't resist :D)

Maybe Bono didn't linger because Fly impersonators at concerts are as thick as . . . :lol:

At the Philly shows, I only saw myself. I did look for the competition. Didn't find any. B)

In true Fly fashion, he is in effect photographing himself. Enjoy.
