Omfg, really, I don't know what else to say but omfg...I am laying here in my hotel room, I can't hear and I can barely move my legs, but I think that may poosibly have been the single greatest musical experience of my life to date.

I'm so happy for you! (And pretty damn jealous all at the same time.)

Damnit, I thought I double posted. But in my defense, I was typing on my cell phone, and really I could NOT move lol. Even now, I really still can't move, I should've left an hour ago but this is the nicest hotel room I've ever been in by myself. Ok so it's the only hotel room I've ever been in by myself, but still.

Anyways, Setlist:

1. THEN SHE KISSED ME
2. Radio Nowhere
3. Out in the Street
4. Adam Raised a Cain
5. Spirit in the Night
(sign collection)
6. Rendezvous
7. For You (full band)
8. MOUNTAIN OF LOVE
9. Backstreets
10. Gypsy Biker
11. Because the Night
12. NOT FADE AWAY/She's the One
13. Livin' in the Future
14. Cover Me
15. Mary's Place
16. Drive All Night
17. The Rising
18. Last to Die
19. Long Walk Home
20. Badlands

21. Girls in Their Summer Clothes
22. Jungleland
23. Detroit Medley
24. Born to Run
25. Dancing in the Dark
26. American Land

27. Thunder Road
28. LITTLE QUEENIE

29. Twist and Shout

My comments so far, as c&p'ed from Backstreets:

I really don't know what to say. I have only been to one other show. But this just seemed like the absoulte greatest thing I have EVER seen. It was just so intense, and so electric, and amazing. I haven't looked back to see other people's reactions, but nothing could spoil the show for me anyways. Also, I've finally heard "Mary's Place" in person, not just a boot. I don't know how anyone can say that's boring when you're THERE. God, I'm still reeling from last night, so I can't quite get my thoughts in order. I left that concert unable to hear anything at all for 30 minutes, and even now I can barely hear, not to mention the fact that I can barely move my legs, and I honest to God couldn't be happier.

If I think of anything to add, don't doubt that I will

I had a friend at last night's show, and she kept sending me overjoyed text messages about how amazing the set list was. But she got so into the show that she forgot to call me

That's an insane setlist. Great show to catch, Ashley.

You know, there still hasn't been any announcement regarding a Darkness 30th anniversary set, but all these songs showing up on this leg that date back to that time make me think that he must have been listening to some of the shows back then, and hopefully that means he's picked one out for a Darkness set, because this shit has been insane.

Not Fade Away into She's The One is fantastic. I love this version from the Darkness tour:

First Not Fade Away

i was at the show last night and all i could think of was how i wished u2 was more like springsteen when it comes to touring...

springsteen actually had a GA line procedure that was fair to everyone and very organized, imagine that

the setlists vary greatly and springsteen is able to play random songs off fans signs

3 hour and 20 minute shows of pure energy, enough said

if i enjoyed springsteens music as much as u2's it would have blown away the u2 concert experience

yes, the excuses that u2 give out always seem more lame after a springsteen show.

I have to say, that I've never been to a u2 show (I know shame on me ), but I also thought about that...weird!

one can only dream that u2 would actually take at look at what springsteen does for GA. It's damn near perfect but... oh nooooooooooooo! we get the random lottery scan which is such a perfect system.
