Actually, Greg Carroll was Bono's assistant and he died this week 25 years ago.

Best part ever:

Edge = "oh, for fuck sake!" about 35 seconds in on your vid. Could really hear him say it at the back... I just died laughing.

Quick notes on the bus ride home...

Front row to Edge's left. Really liked seeing all the young faces inside the circle too! Lots of college aged kids, teenagers, and young children in the crowd here. It was hot that day but the security there was really good with bringing people inside and making sure people were in the shade and stuff.

Overall, I liked the show, but probably liked Chicago 1 two years ago a bit more. Highlights for me were the Achtung opening numbers for sure, all of which I never heard live before. I FINALLY was at a show where they played UTEOTW live, which was amazing for me. When I heard the opening synth, I screamed "Thank you God! About f'n time," haha. I was thrilled to finally hear my favorite song live. Loved that they played One Tree Hill live too. It was rough in parts, but I liked the spontinuity there and it was great to hear a song I never thought I'd hear them play.

So yeah, I had a great time and can't wait for the next show. See you guys again in Minneapolis!

When Bono mentioned Greg's anniversary and how they wrote a song around it, a few of us - myself included - started screaming for it. Bono then said they'd have to ask "the professor" and spoke to Edge quickly, but it seemed like they shot it down until after he sung the last verse at the end of MOS. Then they quickly decided to do it after all.

U2BRTHR, I wanted to say hi to you earlier in the line, but I didn't get the chance to. Hope you enjoyed the show and I really liked the helmet you wore!

Speaking of One Tree Hill, I think Bono was reading the lyrics too. Another view:

I think we encouraged them a bit.
