And then a roar. The attempts at singing abandoned. Adam Clayton must have walked on stage, with that smile of elegant and pleased English gentleman I've seen more than once. I couldn't see him. The sea of arms was tossing around without a break between the waves. I imagined Larry Mullen slipping on stage just behind him, sliding behind his drumkit trying not to be noticed, though he couldn't help being pleased. They must have all gotten goosebumps. The view of so many maniacal tens of thousands there for YOU must be an overwhelming sight. Young faces lighting up at your appearance on a stage, loving you for doing what you love. It must be an amazing feeling.
go read the whole thing!

Post this in EYKIW, olive.

That was truly incredible. I really felt like I was there, feeling the same emotions as those who saw it in person. Her description of Bono's singing and the emotion in the place is damn near palpable. Wow.

Absolutely incredible writing. Wow.

I did see him. I was there and it was mindblowing. I need some time now to digest this review.

thanks for posting it, Olive

It's amazing when someone finds the words to describe what happens to all of our souls at a U2 concert...... This is so incredibly beautiful.
