firsties!!!

3am, just got home....freaking long-ass day

made it to stadium at 415p, got red zone packet

here's me and my sister




met d.darroch & cathal in the red zone line


RZ2 gate was on the opposite side of the field from the stadium entrance, had to go all the way around...very frustrating.

saw the regular GA folk running across the field in waves...wish i would have had video.

took my usual spot 7 people deep outside of rail right of center

pretty sure going in the setlist would be equal to norman, it was...nice to hear dirty old town, bummed we didn't get even a snip of in god's country (at least we avoided a pee-fest).

got the whole thing, will try to get something on youtube this (wednesday) afternoon

anybody got a 16 hour energy?

Dan, I can't believe you posted last night before bed. AND uploaded pics. YOU'RE CRAZY!! I looked at my pics once before hitting the hay.

3 hours of sleep and I'm off to work. I'll post my review when I have a moment at work.

amazing show, best of the 7 U2 shows i've been to, Bono sounded amazing.. AMAZING. his vocals on MOS and One were just incredible, band played tight, even if Edge forgot how to start In A Little While lol. Energy was up, crowd was into it, a near full house, i just saw a few in the upper deck, so at least 65,000 out of the possible 70,000. pics and vids to come, but wow...can't wait to do it all again in Vegas

HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!! I don't think I can describe my experience with this show but I"ll try and I'll preface it by saying that I was a little disappointed by my first 360 experience in Dallas and wondered if "my band" had lost their live touch - it was a little scary

LINE UP: The evening before, we found out they wouldn't allow any camping or groups of more than 5 ppl gathering. This was strictly enforced by the police who drove by the GA line up area every 5 minutes - literally. So they handed out numbers, told us to go back to our hotels and get some sleep and "see you at 6am, not earlier"

So my friends and I had numbers in the early 30's and still managed to get a decent night's sleep. Line up went well and numbers were honored in the morning.

I had such a great time meeting almost everyone on my "want to meet" list and some non-Interferencers too. The weather was perfect and we were in the shade most of the day.

GETTING IN: What a clusterf*ck.
a) The family who was behind us spend the last hour in line plotting to get in front of us. Despite our best efforts, on our way down to the field, they succeeded we went in. Nice example to set for your kids, right?

b) The family in front of us allowing boyfriend of daughter in line in front of us TEN MINUTES before we went in!! WTF? Mom ( one of those SuperObsessedFans) said "Yeah the same thing happened to us in Chicago and it was shitty." SO THAT MAKES IT OKAY!??????!!!

c) I don't think security knew quite how "exuberant" U2 fans would be. So they stopped the first group of 150 or so after about 50 yards of running while they figured out Plan B. When Plan B still didn't stop the pushing and shoving they stopped us for about 20 minutes while they came up with Plan C. We got more and more nervous and more and more tense. FInally all of us in the front decided to make rows, link arms and walk slowly. SEcurity put up a rope in front of us. They stopped us at the entrance to the field, pulled away to the rope and I made the longest fricking run of my life. I grabbed what I swear was the last outer rail spot and lost my BF. (Found her 10 ppl down and we and the 10 ppl between us organized a switch :lol It seemed like EVERYONE in the first 60 ppl wanted outer rail center

SECURITY; Great crew, very friendly and yet very professional. There were 3 fights and 3 or 4 fainters who had to be pulled out - - and they handled each of these situations without raising panic or disturbing the show.

THE SHOW: OMFG!!!!!! A-FRICKING-MAZING doesn't even begin to describe it. (I think it helps that I came in with "low" expectations.) Bono's energy was soooooo high and he was really having fun. Spent a lot of time near us on the ramp. Edge didn't spend too much time making eye contact w/ audience but he really seemed to be rockin out and enjoying playing. And Larry... well you all know how I feel about Larry.

MY SIGN: Many of you know how badly I want to RUN! Bono saw my sign, smiled and laughed at me. I yelled at him "C'mon!!! You know you want to!!!!!!!" He smiled again and left. I know it's dumb but that made my night.

SUMMARY: Amazing show, met amazing people, love this band as much if not more than ever.

Will post pics later tonight.

I saw them all three nights in Dublin and they were incredible then but I have to say the show seemed much tighter last night - they were having fun and the energy was amazing - see you in Vegas
