Awesome show.

I got there around 1 p.m. and waited by the area where we figured they would arrive. At around 4 or 4:30 p.m., Edge came out and signed autographs. That was a cool experience since this was the first time that I got a chance to get up close to any of the guys. He was the only one to come out and I left to go inside around 5:15 p.m.
As they walked onto the stage, I saw Larry smile. That got me excited since Larry rarely smiles. He must have been happy to see the crowd getting pysched.

The show was kick-ass to start with the AB songs and they played my fav live song, UTEOTW. During Miss Sarajevo, two ladies next to me asked me if that was a new song since they never heard it before. My jaw dropped. But I was polite and told them it was a song they did in 1993 with Luciano Pavarati.

I thought the crowd was great. Understandably, the set of Stay, Miss Saravejo and Zooropa brought the crowd down a bit, but they got back up with COBL, Crazy, SBS and Vertigo.

I was really moved by Walk On and One. They nailed it.
HMTMKM was another treat for me.
After they finished MOS, it seemed like they were ready to walk off the stage and end the show. But they quickly turned around and Bono said, "One more" and they played Out of Control, which got me so pumped.

I wanted to see Adam smile more, but the times I saw him, he was serious for the most part.

The show was nearly 2-and-a-half hours long, but it was incredible. I was screaming and jumping, but less so toward the end because I was afraid of losing my voice.

New Jersey shows are always great, and I think the guys really enjoy when they do shows here in Jersey because of the amazing crowds.

I can't view that yet since I'm at work, but I'm sure it's pretty outstanding! Thanks for sharing!

I'll probably write more details when I recover...

Got there at 3:30pm, food/drink/music...met some great people.

The Fly the light show is so damn good, I think it gave me a seizure.
His voice is amazing during Miss Sarevjo.
I thought the stadium would collapse during Streets..
Shed a tear during the outro to Walk On....why? I have no idea.
Had no idea the stadium sold margaritas....tequila was perfect after hours of drinking in the sun....haha

traffic was rough....

my parking lots peeps were great, my section 226 inside the show were rocking....such a fun night...Thanks U2...I hope to see you again soon.

Haha those are my YouTube policies.

Fast uploads. I don't look through the camera. I don't edit the shot. Raw and uncut. Explains the choppy video but as far as I'm concerned the sound quality is what really matters!

I'm about 3/4 my way through my uploads right now! Also, my pleasure to share!

Judging that pic it looks like I was immediately to your right, that's pretty cool lol.

Sec. 201 Row. 3 Seat 17. I was the kid (or so I like to still call myself) with the War shirt.

That was hilarious. When Stuck started I said "Hold on, I thought they were playing Stay?" Then he realized and switched gears.

Oh God, we were in the middle of arguing with people trying to cut in front of us, so I dread how that will turn out.
