At the Phoenix show, Elevation 1st leg, my husband (who btw most people think is a deadringer for Bono), was sobbing!!My son asked him why and he said..."Because I see a man on stage singing his HEART out!!!"

I took 6 different friends with me to see U2 on the Elevation Tour and a now ex-girlfriend to 4 shows. All were very emotional in different ways, but the Boston 4 show was so moving that night. Hearing "Bad" during just totally made me break down and cry. Recovering from a divorce is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with and the words of that song just seemed so truthful that night to me for some reason.

No I have not actually cried at a u2 concert. I have been very deeply moved, but never to tears.

Did I cry at a U2 concert? Well, from the 15 u2 concerts that I have attended since 1987, it was the second concert I went to (in Edinburgh 1987) during New Year's Day that I cried with happiness cos of oh so many reasons which I cant explain in words here.

Fast forward through to 1997 on PopMart again in Edinburgh when I simply broke down in tears when MLK came up in tribute to Princess Diana. That was very moving.....Same with Bono's tribute to his late father last year at Slane 1 which was incredibly brave of Bono to do and also very emotional for all of us who were there!

Minneapolis - Ihave never been that close, so I cried like a little girl

Las Vegas - watching the names scroll, and seeing one of the names of a person on flight 93 - I know his sisters.

The 3 Elevation gigs I went to were in the week before and after Bono's dad died, right up the front, lookin right into his eyes while he was cryin and singin definitely pushed a few tears out, and One at Slane and Slane2 did the job too
