Elevation Tour memory lane train....

I started this sort of thread after the first leg of the tour and have since myself seen some shows.
Now the current tour is finally over, what were the moments for you that will always stay with you? The memories that mean so much to you?

I just wrote a little of this in U2kittens survey(sorry those who read it there), but I'd like to hear all about your special Elevation Tour memories as I know many of us here have had SO many.

For me, lining up at London was actually a great experience and hanging out with some really wonderful British,and American people that day who helped me out when I almost didnt get my wrist band after lining up since 8am.
Those guys who rang ticketmaster for me, Pat, Ed and the others who held my spot in line..just really wonderful people.

At the 3rd night Earls show as The FLy went off and sequed into Mysterious Ways, I leant over, totally pumped and grabbed the arm of Paul from Sydney who sold me that ticket and just screamed with a huge grin on my face "thank you!!". That moment made me really happy.

Bouncing to the Elevation hoo hoos with the crowd was just an awesome feeling.

In the Slane dark, with the thousands of fans and amazing feeling of what we'd just experienced, at the start of Walk On, my wonderful friend frogbat leans over and put his arm around me and my other wonderful friend fritzy, and we all stood there together, arm in arm, singing along to Walk On.
It was incredible and I dont think I'll ever forget that moment.Thanks for being such a great friend froggie. I majorly miss you around here
I don't think I'll ever forget those people. The people, the music, the band make up what ends up being a brilliant experience of a life time.
Meeting frogbat, Pom frog, Fritzy, Lazyboy, Crzy4bono, Whiteflag, JennyLou, AM, Zoomerang 11 and ladywiththespinninghead was something I'll never forget.

Lastly, it wasnt a show I was at but I was a part of the experience of Notre Dame.
I sat in a chat room that night with those same Dublin friends plus some more. I also watched that concert with my best friend in the whole world, Craig.
Watching that and feeling the passion of that gig was something I'll never forget, and sharing it with a very special friend whom I may never have been able to go to a U2 concert with was something I shall treasure forever.

Thanks to all those incredible friends, fans and especially U2 for a marvellously generous and hard kickin tour.

Please share your fave stories guys.

Oh SLane 2-I went there and it was great from start to finish, walking past the burger stands and singing along to the music were playing, standing REAL close to the stage ALL day waiting for u2, singing to the u2 songs, walking back to my car and it was about 4 miles from SLane town becuase my dad parked in a field and didnt wanna pay to park the car somewhere having an emergency poncho, meeting the 2 monaghan men after the show, even listening to the man tlka after the show who said "Ladies and gentlemen can i have your attention please, there are 2 main exits...." watching the fireworks, singing the u2 songs with my Dad and Sister, during with or without you when my dad screamed aaah my hairs on fire, also when u2 came on when my Dad shouted Bosco instead of Bono as a joke, driving to and from SLane from my house in Belfast singing to u2's songs and Queens song-Seven Seas Of Rhye

So thats my really boring memory of my u2 concert

Calgary#1 (First leg) - Just the sheer excitement of getting into the heart for the first time and being less than 10 feet from the stage.

LA#1, wrapping my arms around my sweetie and slow dancing to Stuck In A Moment.

LA#1 and #3 - listening to One and watching the names of those lost scrolling on the screen and around the arena

Hearing Bono talk about his dad before playing Kite.

So many more...

first time in the heart last june- what an amazing feeling, one that can never be replicated.

going to london and dublin, and seeing U2 in a completely different context (on the day that bono's father passed away, and in their home country).

seeing the names of Sept. 11th victims scroll during "One" at the MSG 10/24 show. the first time i ever cried at a concert.

larry's birthday show on halloween, and the final show in miami- both were very special, and i feel blessed to have been there.

and finally, meeting wonderful fans from all around the world- some of whom i hope to remain friends with for a looong time.

i have had the most wonderful, crazy, and fun six months of my life. thank you, U2.

Meeting Zoomanda!

Awww shuks, I have so many stupid things that meant so much to me from the 3 gigs I went to.

London-Cool people in the stupid "queue for tickets you payed for 2 months ago" scene.

-My best friends reaction to the concert. His first ever gig. The whole gig. Meeting lotsa cool people, people taking pics of us with the Irish jerseys and Irish flag during SBS in the heart, that was gas

-Lotsa stuff, the whole gig. Bono acknowledging me, lol, "oooh, he's looking at me" ya, ahahaha. He did though! hehe, well actually that was spooky, during kite, the whole song. Stopped me jumping like a kangaroo anyway, for that song, then back to pogo land!

Slane1-Meetin Frog,Zoomanda(ahem, u guys made a lovely couple ) Jenny, Whiteflag, and the others I shoulda talked to more but was drunk-AM, Gorby, Crzy, Fritzy, ZoomerangII, britfrog, and the rest, all really nice friendly people!

-The gig, hahaha! Whoaaaaa! Lotsa stuff.

Slane2-The day was just fantastic, couldn't have been much better. Not gettin split up from friends cause we got in the pit and they didn't get crushed alive. IRELAND BEATIN HOLLAND! Yep, it was part of the support acts, so there!

Can I just post my 3 longs dull diaries again? Hehe, ah twas great, and at least I have photos and the memories wrote down, and hopefully some feckin videos soon, to keep those memories fresh

Well this tour was simply amazing for me. I had only seen U2 twice before and both times I was no where near the stage. I was so excited to have the opportunity to be so close to them after all these years!

Oakland was awesome. I met spanisheyes, debbiesg and Zoogrl in the GA line. The concert was incredible and at points all I could do was stand there in in awe of Bono being less than 10 feet away from me. It was just surreal to me.

But the highlight of the tour for me was Vegas. The show was amazing from the Heart. I felt like I was in dreamland. I had such a great time and met so many special people... especially my sistah LarryMullen's_POPAngel and my noodle HelloAngel. LikeO2, Angel, Disco, eliv8, luvlady, Mrs.Edge, Elvis, moonie, Danospano, martha, U2Flame.. wahhh there's just too many to name! They're all awesome. db9 (..mm how could I forget!).

We had some fun fun times in the GA line and at the Hard Rock. Experiences I will never forget and I feel really lucky to have met such great people!

Thank you U2!!

i remember in Philadelphia some guy in a haze of drugs/alcohol standing in the middle of GA, urinating during With or Without You... for the whole fucking song!!!!!!

I also remember the shows I attended being incredibly intense, emotional experiences

and he seemed surprised when security came and dragged him away

the funniest thing during this though, ah, maybe I shouldnt even say, but well, as he was doing this some guy walked past him and actually walked right into his, what shall I call it, um, junk... and his daughter too, but I don't think they realized it... though, I don't know how that could be because he was still pissing away at this point

scoring eight tickets for my friends and I (4 nosebleeds and 4 GA) from ticketmaster.com on the day of the Hartford show was excellent. doing the same for new jersey was nice too.

and getting caught bootlegging NYC #1 was memorable.

as was meeting the brunette from 'sex and the city' after nyc
