Sure was nice to see venue security had there act together. No hassels in line, entry or reentry. Nice to see them wristbanding before entry to the stadium too. Cuts down on the drama of entry to venue. Very impressive from a venue that hasnt had a concert in 10+ years

Security was top notch, unlike Cowboys Stadium.

U2 is also in fine form. Unknown Caller was absolutely beautiful. In a Little While was also really cool. Hell there wasn't a bad moment tonight, this entire show is a spectacle, and its so awesome words just cannot describe. Im liking this better than Dallas because A) its my backyard and B) it was an open air venue. Sure Dallas had more people but this thing was meant to have liftoff and no roof over our heads.

My only complaint, the pit is way too overcrowded, seriously. Minor bitch after the fact, i wouldnt see this show any other way than inside the pit. I would love to go to sleep but im too pumped up now. GOnna have a beer or two more and drift off into clouds myself.

I swear everytime i see this band i dont see a bunch of rich guys trying to act cool, im seeing a group of guys who really do care about their audience, who come from an era where people know or knew how to make music that really mattered. ISHFWILF might have been the highlight again, with the crowd taking over lyrics, but then again GOYB or MW or TUF, UV, WOWY even all were just incredible performances. This show tonight somehow looked more complete than Dallas last week. No idea why..really....but they really did give it their all. Sure Bono screwed up some random lyrics here and there but....its his songs....he can do that he wrote them. IM probably a geek for even knowing that because the average Joe or Jill or whatever would not have noticed.

Our crowd had its moments, ISHFWILF, Streets, BD, MW, Elevation, GOYB, SBS, Vertigo, and even Crazy Tonight were all pretty high energy moments. This and im sure there were more. Total liftoff.

I should probably go to bed now. Thank U2 for a special night, we LOVE you too.

Just got back. I got there at 5. There was some traffic spots due to the game over the weekend. But once in OK, it was smooth sailing. Someone on the thread said 5 over the limit was safe. It was more like 20 over was safe. Not 1 cop on I35 either way. People were going 90 easily. In the end it didn't matter as I got a great spot in the pit which leads to another point.

GA entered gate 7 and tried to get in the pit on Adam's side and they said it was full. Then the front rail area required another band and they said it was full, but I snuck in. due to the stage being in the center, you can't get to Edge's pit entrance without going around in the concourse. Once I figured that out, I got in fine. People were not budging in the pit. In Chicago and Dallas, I had no problem leaving the pit and getting back. Here it was a chore.

I noticed that in the corner of the stadium, people were standing outside the stadium. I don't know if it was outide the stadium or just in the concourse. But those people if getting a free view, got a decent view at that.

Sound was great. Not too loud. My ears didn't ring like after Chicago or Dallas.

Bono before MOS asked everyone to sit including those in the pit in order to break a record for standing up to poverty. I stood next to a group of college students from Kansas and they had a blast. Crazy Tonight was amazing with everyone around jumping up and down.

Blackeyed peas were great. I don't like their recorded album stuff, but they were great live. They were also on stage for an hour unlike Snow Patrol or Muse.

A great show, my favorite of the 4 I saw. Can't wait for next summer, knock on wood.

Good to know. I like their recorded stuff, but the live stuff I've heard from them was awful.

No, but I did find this review from a disgruntled fan and laughed to myself:


Quote:
Sadly, I left the show feeling as if the band played to only half of the audience--the half sitting on the other side of the stadium. Unfortunately, the pre-sale for this show is so far in advance that there is no way to warn other ticket buyers that there is a fifty-fifty chance that U2 will face away from them. After looking forward to this show for several months, I was so disappointed that I returned the T-shirt I bought.

Wow, HC Miller, you made it into the pit w/o a GA ticket-other than your RZ?



You are lucky.

Great pics.

Great pics, im pretty sure i saw you there.

Also, Bono pulled the cutest little kid up on the ring with him for COBL. Im guessing this kid was around 7-9 years old, really young, and he probably didnt have much of a clue what was going on at first. And of course he got the run/walk around the ring hand in hand with Bono and the sunglasses souvenir and a nice wave from Bono as he walked back towards his spot by his parents. Really touching deal and the crowd totally ate it up. To see this kids face as he walked back wearing Bono's shades, priceless. He was smiling and waving at all of the people who waved at him and gave him thumbs up.

We high-fived the little guy on our way out of the pit, he was grinning ear to ear from all of the attention and he probably had as much trouble sleeping last night as us die hard fans. Something tells me he will be attending u2 shows in the future....

Will have to find that video on youtube

Nice to see Unknown Caller back!
