Oakland 11-9 - Ellipse Pictures

Phew, I think I'm getting too old for this! I am TIRED!

Had a fabulous time at the show. Got there around 2:30pm or so, met up with Reggie Thee Dog and Diemen. Tried to wait to meet the band, but alas, 5:45pm came and no sign of them so we went back to the line. The line was pretty organized. I watched as about 20 or so people before me got their tickets scanned and no ellipse.. I held my breath and VERTIGO VERTIGO VERTIGO! Weeeeeeeeeeee so I chose the back rail in the ellipse since I've already seen the show from the front row.

Anyway I'll shut up now and post some pics! I'll post the best ones/ones I like, the rest are in the gallery here:

Opening band was not bad at all, I like Reggae so I enjoyed them!

This one is hilarious. Bono got PISSED! Some guy was throwing water at him and all I could see is Bono's lips mouthing at him and pointing going "fuck ________ fucking __________ fucker ________" LOL

Adam's Butt (for neutral)

Yesterday I was in a seat and when the show started, I was looking at all the confetti falling down, then to the the stage and totally missed Bono getting up there.
When I finally turned my attention to the tip of the ellipse, he had already miraculously appeared.

And today from the back of the floor, it looked just like that.
Of course, I know how he gets up there.
Still GREAT to see it captured on film!!!

I would have loved to have seen it from the side where you were standing!

Very funny indeed.

Sicy, lovely photos! But more than that, I love your attitude about where to position yourself at the GA floor. I wish I could be satisfied with having seen them up close once.
