Did you see my WAR flag Manchester???

Last night was amazing and reading some posts in here that the crowd was a bit weak is lame in itself.

We were going crazy , people were complaining about the flag being in the way, complaining about wristbands, complaining about the weather, but those folks couldn't agree on the colour of shite!

I had a great time and want to thank them for a cracking start, here's to them!

PS say hi if our vintage 'been waved before at many gigs' WAR tour flag caught your eye, or even just had your eye out!

That's about it in a nutshell! I had trouble with wristbands too, and was initially gutted when they let the B gate in and we saw all the people already in there, just chilling really. I thought eh??? but finally did the jedi mind trick on some steward for a night to remember for a long long time.

Yep I saw you to the right of the stage. Did you see me with my U2 war T shirt on. First saw them in 1983 War Tour.

Ive got a picture of your war flag at home (at work at mo), it came out well, not sure who was on b stage at time but your flag looks really good in the foreground.

Yep I saw it. Me and my friend both said how cool it was.

I was at the front rail on the outside of the catwalk Adams side and every time we turned to look on to the b stage the flag looked real good.

I also thought Bono might have taken it.

You're not wrong, it's one sad pole, but you know how it is with our health and safety aware stewards,we couldn't risk clubbing people with it.

Bono and Larry were so close to taking it at one point during Yahweh I had to tell them to back off!
