Seattle, April 25th, section 101, row 25, seats 1 & 2. This will be my first U2 show, and the first concert I've been to in seventeen years. My husband has informed me that he 'goes to listen to the music, not to jump around', so I'm going to have to make up for his stoic non-involvement by jumping twice as much.

The Electric Co. - 17 years, 7 months, 23 days

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Why am I so bad at this kidding stuff? I am so literal sometimes it kills me!

The other thing that is killing me right now is that there have been tickets to the Chicago concert on Bono's birthday available on ticketmaster all weekend. If only I could not put a limit to spending and responsibility and go! I just called them up again on ticketmaster.

Someone buy them already and stop this temptation!!

I'm not.

Unless the bottom falls out of U2's popularity and they have to play small clubs. If that happens, I'll be all over 'em, but otherwise....

(I really can't stand arenas and/or large crowds)

indra - the amazing thing about U2 is that you don't feel like you are in a large crowd. It feels like they perform for you and your closest friends. I hope one day you get to experience it.

Wednesday, April 6, Staples Center, LA...

We ended up paying 200 bucks each for our seats through TM - despite them being clear across from where the stage is... It's my first time seeing them, so my friend and I took anything we could! I'm not complaining -- I'm in the building, right?

Trust me. It doen't matter what the band makes me feel, I'd still know there are thousands of other people there too. I was a bit wigged out at a show with about 800 people (800 calm people too), so there is no way I'd enjoy it. No worries though...at least I don't have ticket buying stress.

My best friend hates crowds, so I understand.
