U2 laser show in Boston

For those of us around New England, The Museum of Science will be starting a U2 laser show this weekend (they ran one several years ago, I'm guessing they have updated with some ATYCLB music in the mix now).
It'll run Thurs-Sat @ 8PM, and all week during school vacation week. Cost is $8.00.

And if you happen to have an FNX card from WFNX radio, there's a free show for cardholders this Thurs 4-4 @8PM, bring your card and you and a guest get in free. Free is good.

That sounds really cool. I live in Toronto, and I remember when they did a Pink Floyd one, and I kept hoping that I would hear about a U2 one. Too bad it isn't here !

Have a great time!!

olive: The laser shows at the Museum of Science are done in the planetarium. While music plays, the laser "artist" shines lasers on the dome to go along with the music.
I've seen a number of them, and they're pretty cool. The Pink Floyd "The Wall" is one of the best, even if you aren't a Floyd fan cause the laser images and music go well together.

I used to go to these shows all the time when I was in college and high school, a lot for a lack of time and nothing better to do and they were great... I cant wait to see this one!

I went to the laser show last night..other than the annoying teenagers sitting behind me kicking my seat and being obnoxious, it was fun. I was a little surprised to hear the Peace on Earth/Walk On from the tribute to heroes thing. I think I might go again!

Wow, the last time I saw a laser show there was a field trip back in high school. Back then it was the Moody Blues. Thanks for the tip Hewson..

Wow, you guys are lucky, you get the new songs!
Our Griffith Observatory is closed for 3 years due to renovations but we were able to see U2's laser show last year there and it was awesome.
Hopefully they'll add the new songs when they re-open.
