I ask any boy here whos been to a U2 concert......

seriously........have any of you come home after a concert and through emotion, cried?



*re-edit to explain

Im asking the lads this question cause I know about girlie emotions which is obvious, but I also know men hold back, therefore was curious if U2 have broken those tears out, from a concert????

I cried after I had realized how much I spent on merchandise...but seriously, I've gotten very emotional and have been brought to tears during all their show I've had the privelege of attending, particularly during 'Bad' or 'Street'...

But usually after the show I'm filled with this overwhelming, incredible sense of adreneline and completeness at the awesome fact that I had just spent two hours with the band I've loved for so many years...definetely an emotional high I stay on for about a week.

No, after coming home from a concert, I'm often a bit wired and have trouble falling asleep(which sucks on those weeknight concerts), but haven't ever cried. I get an uplifting feeling from a good concert, and it certainly wouldn't make me cry.

No. I was filled with positive energy when I left the heart. The second concert, I was too busy waiting in the parking lot.

no, but after staying up all night (32 hours straight) and waiting in line for 15 hours ( Hamilton ) and then rushing to the stage, I was pretty giddy!!!! Although, I was EXTREMELY PISSED OFF after being in line for that long ( from 3am on ) and seeing all the selfish idiots cut the line. I swear about 150 people must of budded in line. Man, even writting about it makes me mad. What a bunch of dicks!!!

I hear you there. When I went to the 3 shows in Boston, I had to take a sleeping pill when I got home for the last 2 shows cause there's no way I could get to sleep after all the excitement. The first nite, I got home around 1 am and didn't get to to sleep till around 4. Kept playing the concert over and over again in my head. As far as crying, no, very emotional at the concert but no tears.

I welled up and came REAL close to crying at least 5 times during the first Slane concert 8/25/01. It was just too much to handle.

We flew in from the USA that morning - hadn't slept for a while - the long wait at the tip of the heart all day and evening - hunger and thirst and exhaustion - and the overwhelming emotion of that particular show. There were lots of guys crying during the Homecoming-Kite sequence and also during the final encore.

Bono's crying half the show didn't help either.

Never cried but the MLK tribute to Princess Diana during Popmart was very emotional.The whole stadium was eerily silent and bono just gazed up at the screens which showed the picture of her and sang the words.Im not a great royalist personally but you couldn't help but be moved by it.
Also i was at the first concert that Bono had mentioned the situation with his father to a crowd.Very moving also.

Cheers.
Henke.

My eyes got watery in Philly 11/2 at the part where Bad finishes, the audience sings 40, and then Where The Streets Have No Name starts up. That part of the show was just amazing.

I can be honest and say that there were tears were welling up in my eyes at the three post 9/11 shows I went to each time One was played. Especially when the name of my roommate's three friends scrolled on the screen.

As well I was at tampa and when they played Kite followed by my sweet lord I thought that was pretty emotional.

I wouldn't say cry, but tears always form in my eyes when I hear the intro to Streets.

Yeah I did and still do.

I was at possibly 2 of the most emotional shows last year in London 21 and Slane 1. Kite was amazing and had me in tears on both occasions as did With Or Without You. When I watch the DVD to this day, the start of Streets and With Or Without You has me a little emotional.

PS - I didnt really even talk after London 21, I just sat in silence for about 2 hours!!
