This is me and the stage one of the nights. Behind the stage rocks!

The moment. Thanks to who posted this. I think I know who you are. You guys were there for as long as I was. If you're the same person, thank you also for making sure I got up front instead of others just getting there pushing in.

I was at the 2nd Giants Stadium show on Thursday and, wow, it was amazing. Took my aunt who is a big music lover and has been to tons of concerts in her time, and she couldn't stop telling me how this was the greatest concert she had ever been too. I'd have to agree.

I had GA and we got to the line later than I wanted, at around 4:30. So I never thought I'd get a good spot. WRONG. I don't know how, but we got inside the circle, right on the front rail on Edge's side! I got a bunch of amazing shots of Edge. Bono spent a nice amount of time on the bridge on Edge's side. In fact, that's where he pulled the little boy up during COBL.

Say what you will about songs like Vertigo and Elevation, but the crowd when insane when they started those songs. And, for a new and kind of odd song, the crowd was really into the Crazy Tonight remix...once they figured it out. At first I felt everyone who didn't know it was sort of "huh?" but it was so funky and cool it quickly won over the crowd.

I had my own little mini freak out when they played "Until the End of the World." I love that song something fierce and wasn't anticipating it. So, yayness!

I LOVE "Unknown Caller" on the record, but I wasn't too crazy about it live. And I wasn't sure about "Moment of Surrender" as the ender (and I REALLY love the song on the record, too). The other No Line songs were great, though, and I'd love to see them throw "Stand Up Comedy" in there. I know it gets crap, but it's a fun song and I think it'd rock live.

Bono's voice was in top form. Edge was great. Loved seeing Adam venturing out onto the rap at times. A lot of fun. Kind of cool that it set the record for Giants' Stadium attendance.

I do have to say that U2 fans are awesome. Got to talk to the group around us in the pit (aside from the slug who was standing next to me, who was twice my size--I'm quite tiny--and kept elbowing me to make me omove) and they were all so nice and friendly.

Oh, and someone from Muse had placed a lemon on their gear. Totally cracked me up so I had to take a picture of it. (I've been too lazy and tired to pull my pics off of my camera yet.)

I cannot wait for Vegas. I have seats (those mysterious field bleechers, lol) so it'll be awesome to see the show from a different perspective.

That's a great clear view of the stage SMB. No claw leg obstructions for you.

You couldn't see the top of the tower, but it was still cool. The 300 level blocked it

Yep, 2nd level behind stage looks much better than lower level. Looks like you could see over the equipment and find Bono's center stage position.

I have been a huge U2 fan since 2005, NJ 2 was my first time seeing them in concert. The concert was amazing and topped other great concerts I saw this year. (Paul McCartney, Billy Joel and Elton John).

I heard "Jagger" but could not understand a single other name.

A couple people over from got into a pretty heated exchange over the pushing that went on, but nothing more than words came from it...and the guy continuing to push his way to the middle.
I was on the back rail behind you (I believe) and dealt with the same jackasses.

I even had this woman step on my foot in the middle of Magnificent that had her own security detail walking with her. She apologized. I wish I knew who she was to have her own security detail following her around.
