Great concert overall...U2 brought their "A"-game (as always). And Lenny Kravitz was pretty good as well.

My only gripe is that the crowd could've been more lively. I've been to both the Las Vegas and Rose Bowl shows, and those crowds were way more energetic than the one for the Seattle show. Too many rich yuppies and not enough "hardcore" U2 fans, perhaps? :P

Sound quality could have been better as well (some parts sounded muffled, at times).

Lenny Kravitz' set coulda been longer

great show from the boys as always, actually a little bit more so.. i thought it was a very
special performance....

liveliness in the crowd was not the greatest as you say, at least for those of us on the floor, i believe the sun was too blame on that one... standing around all day long, only to receive useless wrist bands which did not do a thing to hold your place in line did not help the situation... everybody was obviously drained from the incessant heat beating down on us... no real biggie though... i could still sing my heart out...

if anything thats my one gripe... people didnt sing along as much as they should.. c'mon its a u2 SHOw! you'd think at least the GA crowd would know the words... ahh well.. still had a great time..

i can say one thing... SEATTLE girls!! wow! yeah thats what i'm talking about... thanks! y'all sure know how to make a guy feel welcome ..
..
...





as far as the setlist.. S.T.A.Y.!!! FAr aWAy, so ClOSE!!! magical!! God walked through the room

I was in RZ 1 on the rail and I thought the crowd was fantastic! The boys seemed impressed. I was looking up at the nose bleeds and every time I did they were dancing and totally in to it! From where I was the GA seemed in to it??? I was totally in my own world too though being on the rail for the first time..what an incredible show! I did notice that Bono seemed too laid back at times so maybe he was in the sun too much yesterday as well.

Major U2 hangover now! What a great night!

I'm waiting for breakfast before heading out of the Emerald City right now. Some initial thoughts and stuff:
It was great to hang with charmer in the RZ1. Made the time so much enjoyable. Thanks for that bud.
We got the Fly... Sort of. It was bliss stand outside and hearing the boys rip into this one for soundcheck. I think it will pop out before Glas. I am sure of it.
We had a great rail spot about 7 people down from the upper most corner of RZ1.
Lenny was awesome. I wish his set was longer but opening is opening, 40-45 tops.
This static set was a dream come true for me personally. It was pretty much what I wanted.
I wish I had a picture of cori's face when I bumped into her at the end of the show. She looked like she was going to kill me for a sec. lol well, I did make a point of walking into her at least 3 times. Maybe she thought I was hammered or a perv. Too funny!
It was also great to see Thora. I knew I could get all my hockey update from her. Thank you.
Foods here. Gotta go gotta go gotta go gotta go.
More later.

Thanks to whoever elbowed me in the face and knocked my glasses off when they pulled that barrier back and let us onto the floor. Very classy. I still got on the front rail but it knocked me back a bit.

Good show. Crowd was mostly lame. I agree that the heat probably had something to do with it.

Oh wanted to add, I totally lucked out and got the far right edge of RZ1 on the rail. Due to a total screw up with the line outside the RZ doors, after we had created an early line , they made us move back at around 4pm and some the people in the front didn't make it in first because it all got scrambled around. Then we were in five lines at the security tables after they moved us back. THEN they condensed 5 lines to 2 making it even more scrambled. I totally lucked out because I was in front of one of the lines they used for the security search.
2nd in line behind Charles, thanks for being a great line buddy! I just followed you! We just made a mad dash once we found our way inside (total maze of stairs and hallways and staff looking at you like this RZ what's that?) Omg, I could just imagine the confusion with reg GA. Anyway... I was lucky I got the rail on the right edge! Bono only came by us once on the walkway.. and once while sitting on the bridge for MS. Adam was great... I got a huge smile from him when I yelled out his name!

Plus, Cori recognized me from my avatar. I just happened to look over at her randomly while scanning the GA section on the back rail to my right and there she was waving at me. That was so funny! We were reading each others lips perfectly... she goes "are u Jeannie?" and said yes and then I realized it was her, right when she told me she was Cori! Funny!! I think I saw you too Thora, about 4 people away from Cori right? What did you guys think of the crowd energy? I found it great.. but I did get tired in the middle of the show, but manage to keep jumping and singing! You guys looked totally in to it when I glaced over at times... maybe just the front line GA on the rail was toast by the time the show started.
Wow, major deflation now. I want to do it again!!
