I get there and it ends up being row 1 right up from the floor behind the hockey barrier and it was maybe about 40 feet or so from Bruce. Best large venue seat I've ever had.

It was solo acoustic...Bruce only. So there were rules I guess you could say and they were very emphatic about no cameras and turning your cell phone off. Apparently since it was done theater style you could only leave or come back in between songs and he wanted it to be quiet so it was laid back and low key.
Great seat!!!

I was gonna ask about pictures....that makes sense.

Yes, I live in a van down by the river, and I just happen to have WiFi. True story.

The show was overall awesome. He played stuff he's never played and told some stories that made me giggle. I had read in the paper that he wasnt really going to be doing the classic/popular stuff but I was really holding out for The Rising since I love that song and I've heard it acoustic and loved it still. He did play it! In the paper they mentioned something about he played banjo but that never happened...was really hoping it would.

I had my camera but there was security right next to me and I wasnt going to pull out my phone either since it glow and from One with U2 I've learned they stand out. NY said that Bruce had gotten grumpy when people werent quiet etc at a couple of shows he'd been to.

So anyway the show was awesome and I when he left the first time a bunch of people jumped down or ran up to the stage for the encore. I stayed where I was at so I could still see....so anyway he's playing and part of the house lights are up and he comes over to our side of the stage...there really isnt anyone near me left around so he sings a line...I dont remember the whole thing but it had pretty face in it and he smiles an pointed at me!

Final Police Update: They're gone, and they didn't give me a ticket.

(There are no driveways on this street, just street parking, and I got kind if used to being lazy and not having to walk around my car. )

I planned on calling you so you could hear it but with the turn your phone off warning over the loud speaker 3 times, the rules on the paper you got when you came in and heard as you walked in I was a little scared to even take it out!

They're dangerous things, cell phones...I don't blame you for being paranoid about it!
