My first U2 concert!! Melb 2 some pics.

I had such an amazing time! Got to Telstra Dome/lining up about 8:30am. Was standing about 4-5 rows back, left hand side.

Loved the entire show....

Ohhh how amazing was it!! I got there at about 9:30 and was in one of the second "cages". I was on Adams side on the inside close to the railing. It was just so good! Awesome pics by the way.

Thanks.

Yes, it was brilliant. Band and the crowd - so many nice people, one young man much taller than myself took a few pics for me which I thought was so nice. Mum took a few 'videos'/clips with her phone, can't wait to see how they turned out.

I was in the the 3rd cage I think. There was one cage further down, closer to gate 7, then another 2 next to each other. I was in the 2nd one.

Never expected to be that close to the stage. It was awesome.

Anyway, if anyone wants to see the other pics I took here are the rest - feel free to right click and save the pics you like.

Glad you all liked them.

I can't wait till my Mum takes the camera to a kodak shop Friday and gets them printed professional, keep the pics in the program.

Ikkin, I saw those green funny looking things, near the cafe/canteen.

Don't recall giant baked bean things, umm where there were a number of people who I presume got to TD quite early - many of them had there sleeping bags, few tents set up...

I think I might have been a cage between gate 6 & 7... Was so excited for most of the day I didn't take too much notice, was more concerned with getting there early, worrying that I may have gotten there too late (Mum took a few wrong turns on the way to TD so we got there later than expected).

Hey bono_man, if you were near me you didn't step on my toes!
Small world if you were near me though...

carrell's, is that their name? or like... imitation carrell's (sp?). like... fenced off areas that had people in them. you could get in and out (food, toilet etc) but once they were full, they would close them off from people getting in, although some people found reason to sneak in. lol, im over it now, obviously. but at the time, everyone was getting tense.
