Seen and heard
I bought tickets to the U2 concert in New York months ago, and last week the wait was finally over! The concert itself was amazing - they played for over two hours, and included most if their hits. The new stage set up, suspended from 4 legs, supported a giant round video screen. Of course, the best part of the concert wasn't the songs, or the screen, but the electricity that 80,000 fans and one band can create. We met other fans from Mexico, Australia, Ireland, other parts of Canada and of course the US. What other band could convince people to travel that far for "just a concert". The rest of the trip was good, but perhaps somewhat uneventful - Phantom, many glasses of wine, some shopping, and some great food.
