I'll start this one by saying that we had a small gathering in Pasadena for Dinner.
Bonofox, I Move In Mysterious Ways, Kafrun, Fitz, Maddie, Lila, Nicv, Zooey and myself had a nice meal to prepare for tomorrow morning. I can't believe we forgot to take a picture.

If our waitress ever came around, we could have had her take one. Maybe one of Nic's salad too

You forgot to mention our celeb sighting at the restaurant: John Malkovich!

I thought it was better than Vegas! Amazing show and I thought the crowd was great too. The pit was going off!

I arrived at the GA line at f'ing 8:30 after hiking in from my parking spot. They sectioned the line off into groups of 250. I was number 1054. That was the highlight of the Rose Bowl line organization. There was no communication and then suddenly they started moving the line, except there was no security so it became a mob. People who were lined up behind us rushed to the front. After much consternation, I thankfully made it into the circle, between Bono and Edge about 12 back. It was a great spot.

The BEP's were better than Vegas and brought Slash out on stage with them to cover Sweet Child of Mine. I have video.

By then the crowd was juiced and I was pleasantly surprised that the stadium was full by the end of the BEP's set.

When U2 came out the place went bonkers, the pit was full of energy, even more than Vegas. I thought Bono's voice was better than Vegas and Edge was on fire. I could tell the pit was singing along to everything and Bono seemed to be in a mischievous mood which I thought was hilarious. The place went beserk when they played Elevation, completely bonkers. I was exhausted. Oh and "At the End of the World" was absolutely incredible. I love those damn bridges. Oh and I'm pretty sure Bono sang at me during In a Little While (of course I'm sure like 100 other people thought so too )

Last highlight. That preferred parking was worth EVERY penny. I was out of the lot in under a minute and back home in half an hour. Amazing.

Great show.

My highlight was Stuck. They did a beautiful job with it--best I've heard it since the Elevation opener.

Must sleep now.

The show was amazing live - I can't wait to watch it on Youtube - curious as to how it came across. I was in the Red Zone on the rail, which was a fantastic spot - lots of action from the boys right in front of us. I thought Bono sounded great (better than in Vegas), and looking around at what seemed to be all 100,000 people dancing and singing together was a special sight.

And Slash and BEP doing Sweet Child of Mine was an unexpected treat -

(I apparently should have done preferred parking - taking the Gold Line back to our car then to Santa Monica took an hour and forty five minutes [though pretty painless]).

It was a great show, but from my seats, admittedly crappy, the sound was wayyyy too quiet, and all i could hear was bono and larry. every u2 show i ahve ever been to has left my ears ringing, and honestly, thats how it should be. I could hear edge occasionally, and never adam. literally no bass at all.

one thing about the pre show festivities. 50 toilets for 100000 people??? bad bad planning.

bonos voice was unreal though. the best i'd ever heard it live.

I'm watching it again on the YouTube stream. What an amazing night! We were sitting at the back of the stage, at an angle, but it didn't make much difference. Wow, the pit and the floor were packed!!!

This was my first U2 show, and somehow, I don't think it's going to be my last!

I agree, preferred parking was great; we were also out of the lot in no time at all.

I'm beyond tired now, but I just want to see them do one more song...!
