HERE IS A NEW TOPIC PAGE FOR ANY ALL , REVIEWS , THOUGHTS , ETC ON BOSTON , NIGHTS 1-2-3-4....
U2jerry, here, For me night 1 was the overall better show , the set list a little heavier , the 4 song encore and of course BAD......BUT MY SHINING MOMENT was enjoying the show with my 14 yearold son , his first.
our group this night was 8 , and 4 people were first timers. All were completely blow away buy the - U2 EXPERIENCE- and several want to go to another show. On night 1 , the crowd singing the entire song ONE
as BONO guided us along , but I must admit on night two as the crowd sang ONE again it much louder..More so, I was shocked they did this back to back but a nice touch.
Night 2, our group of 16 went...different set list and always welcome changes especially those spur of moment ones, BAD was just unreal , a LIVE_AID flash back , walking along the wild side and realizing 28 years of seeing these boys
over 30 times in 28 years just was so incredible as I remember working the day of LIVE AID , my VCR [wtf ??haha.] rolling and running home , blown away - WERE AN IRISH BAND ....WE COME FROM.....and 12 minutes later I was
hooked for life,By far the bands biggest moment and put the on the so called map, the song BAD also has a personal meaning for me as my only brother passed some years ago, so the back - to back - playing over two shows was one of my greatest U2 memories of all time. So now on a lighter note,
night 2 had the crowd energy early and an fantastic late half of the show but a downer was only a 2 song encore. I found out later that S.H.F.W.I.L.F , was to be the song the crowd sang or The Troubles and then end with ONE. they ended at 10;45 so there was time for another song or two....but in the end a small gripe for an amazing show.
Major props to the Band for the #BOSTONSTRONG............and BONO acknowledging the 23 shows ,and Boston being like a second home.....It was fitting for night 1 &2.
this fan is taking a pass on show 3, But will be in the house closing night !..
