Pardon me while I wax nostalgic...

It was one year ago tonight that my life changed. The first time I ever saw U2 live. The first time I ever cared so much for a band. The beginning of my U2 super fandom. Yes, on 2 December 2001 I saw God walk through the American Airlines arena... and that night U2 changed my life.

This was my response to that night: He Inclined and Heard My Cry

And now I'll post pics

Join me in Elevation tour nostalgia if you are so inclined Doesn't seem like it's been a year, huh?


The venue. I still get goosebumps and pre-concert chills when I drive past it!


Larry played with Garbage... the first of many exciting things that happened that evening!




EL-E-VA-TION!!!!

And now for the mass of pics I've collected... in no particular order...

















I must thank Otto for most of these pictures... I can't even imagine not having his wonderful pictures!

Egads! November 30 was the anniversary of my last of two Elevations (the other one being in March), both in Atlanta. I really can't describe the experience; suffice it to say that I was so blown away after the show that it took me an hour to find the hotel that was right up the street. Damn!

Hippy you're gonna make cry, I miss the tour so much, you actually inspired me to finally write my little diary entry for this, which i was gonna share with everyone but I'm at the bottom of the third page and nowhere near done. Hey if there's any way you can send me you're thousands of pictures from this show I would love it being that I think i got lazy and forget to save them all. This is probably my tied with opening night for my favorite show of the 7 I went to, the energy was amazing, the crowd was doing the wave before the show began for God's sake!!!! There aren't enough words.

Marina, there will be emails on the way this afternoon

*sigh*

I wish I didn't have anything else to do today and could just lay around and listen to the concert and watch my bootlegs all day long... that would be wonderful!

lol... that's Garbage's drum set and Larry played only on their last song... "Only Happy When It Rains"

It was quite a surprise... you should have heard the place go crazy when he walked out

Hippy...I can't tell you how much I needed to read your review of your concert. You made me cry, but it was a good cry...I read your review and it took me back to what I felt when I saw U2...God did indeed move through that arena that night...I wish I had been there with you...I wish you had been there with me...When I heard "One" for the first time I broke...I just couldn't take it anymore...I started to openly weep and total strangers around me hugged me and held me up. Perfect Strangers.

"And if God looks down now, he's smilin'...well God you can look down now, none of us will be here." -Bono in Baltimore

Thank you Hippy

Hallelujah indeed

Re: Pardon me while I wax nostalgic...

Ooohh...Miami, 2 Dec was my only my second U2 show ever; my first time in the heart, but lucky enough to be in the second row. The memories...

I think I have to watch the vid, look at the pictures, listen to the bootleg and stare at The Edge's guitar pick tonight.
