Brisbane - live and in person (pictures)

We were incredibly lucky to be really close and therefore I want to share these pictures with you. It was a fantastic show, I'd say more words but there are no words enough for me to tell you how out of this world awesome the show was. Perhaps some day I'll be able to say it all pseudo-eloquently but it's not the time for that now.

Most marvelously the night turned my significant other into a true blue U2 fan.

Enjoy!

Ummm...are the AFRICA talk flags the ones with Africa in red on a green background? Sorry, I'm not up to speed with these things.

I suppose you'd have to ask U2 or the lighting team to answer your question though.

Great pics, thanks for sharing them. Heard from friends that were there that it was a great show. Sorry to hear Bono stole away with your fly glasses.

That's fantastic. Thank you for bringing back the Fly. I missed him.

I read your story in the other post. Well done!

It sure was. I still feel like I'm reliving it (it helps to find some audio online).

From what I can recall on the Chicago DVD there was a screen, but I don't recall seeing as much colour. Was it really that different?

I feel the same way...

I'm tremendously happy that Australia and NZ got to get their shows in, but it appears that the show they're seeing now in stadiums is a lot better than the arenas we got here in the US. Ohhhh well, as long as they can still rock the stadiums there's no reason they won't come back and do them here in NA again.

I suppose it's a balance between intimacy and huge show. I can't really comment on what's better because the two shows I have seen have both been stadium size. I'd love the opportunity to see an arena one (missed out due to total sell out in the Elevation frenzy).
