I'm BAAACK!!!!!!!!!! Chicago was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

I just got home a few hours ago from my Chicago Elevation experience, and let me just say that 10/15 was the very best U2 show I have EVER seen! ('k, maybe I'm just a little biased cause of what happened after...lol)

****When someone gets boots of these shows, PLEASE PLEASE e-mail me and I can do a B&P...I don't have a friggin' burner. Also, any pics of Larry during mine and ladyLemon's moment would be more than greatly appreciated!****

*I am really tired so forgive any crappy writing right now...*
We had gotten to the UC (me, ShelsRaging, LadyLemon and some of her friends) at 5am. It was so cold that day, gotta love midwestern falls. Anyway, we ended up finding and getting in the GA line at 6am. We were #85-89 in line, and we were pretty happy about that! The night before, LadyLemon and I decided to make signs for Larry, asking for his sticks. We figured it wouldn't hurt to try. (Thanks, Kath!) So, after a LOOOOOONG day in the GA line (OK, I met Cookie, but where were you all?! Blargh!)6pm comes and we get our wristbands and rush into the heart...we got 2nd row, Adam's side. Kristina and I were happy over that-maximum Larry viewing. lol

Garbage-I have to say their set last night was better, well...lol OK, it was better mainly because they were in such a funny mood, I don't know. Shirley was so bad-assed Monday, you've got to love her. She's so tiny!! The bass player...can he turn that thing down some?! LOL Anyway, they were very cool both nights.

So, Garbage goes off, Sgt. Pepper, yadda-yadda...Here comes Influx!! Holy feck, it was AMAZING seeing them come on!!!!!

I swear, I was halfway out of film by the time Beautiful Day was done. lol The show was amazing, I had not one dry eyes during One/POE/Walk On, but the very end....OH MY!!!!!

Kristina and I had our Larry signs up only about 4-6 times during the show. We saw him reading them and smiling as he played. (It killed us that we made him smile!!) He was in an awesome mood that night-he was smiling and laughing all over the place. So, anyway, the show ends, and they're all waving, etc. We see Larry get up, and we're like, "Hmmm". So then, here he comes, a man on a mission...he comes over, plops down on the stage, and smiling (*faints*)leans over to give each of us a stick! It was cool too, when he came over all of a sudden there was a huge crush over on that part of the heart, and people in front of us were trying to grab them away. But he shook his head, "No", and with that smug signature Larry look, made sure he handed each of us our sticks before he got up and went offstage!!!

We were hugging everyone and laughing and jumping up and down and flashing the sign at anyone who would look at it.

It was awesome, guys. I was (and AM!) on such a high now, I can't believe I got one! I don't even know what to do with it now...it's just unbelievable.

Show #2 was fantastic as well...but I had GC this time. *ick* lol Yes, one night in the heart and I'm spolied for life. lol I openly wept during One, and as soon as the show was over I did not want to go back to the hotel. (P.E.D setting in?)

Anyway, I am writng on 24+ hours w/o sleep, and very very little food. I think I may go take a nap with my Larry stick in a few. lol

I know I was a babbling fool after I got my stick...and it sat in front of me at my computer for at least a couple weeks before I put it in a safe place with all of my other mementos.

Yes, that's what I said!!! That beautiful face smiling right at us a foot away was absolutely priceless. I would not hesitate to do it all again, even though we froze our asses off (being from Cleveland you'd think I'd know better than to wear my flip flops when it's 40 degrees out ). I'm still gushing. Quick, somebody slap me!!!

You and those flip flops!!!! I am still shocked you have all ten toes left after that day!!!


It was very well worth it!!! And with what Mirrorball Girl said in another thread about him giving out sticks...makes these sticks even more special!!!

I'm so happy for you guys, April! It seems that so many good things this tour are happening to people who really deserve them. I'm still reeling from last night. 24 hours ago it was almost time for Garbage to start playing! I still haven't really slept, but I'm past caring at this point. Somehow if I don't sleep it feels like it's still the same really long, REALLY awesome day beginning with Monday's show.

By the way, yeah, Garbage was so cool last night! Shirley was in a great mood. And even if I didn't get one of Larry's drumsticks, I did get one of Garbage's guitar picks!

I also have a photo of Bono arriving Tuesday if it comes out. We were hanging around the back entrance really early, because we were kind of loopy due to lack of sleep and figured we'd get there before there were 100 people or so like Monday. There were about 7 people on our side of the fence at 2:15 when Bono and Edge's car arrived! Bono got out and said they couldn't stop (odd, since that seemed to be exactly what they were doing ) because they were late for a photo shoot. I asked him if he minded if I took a picture of him, and he paused for a moment, made a very entertaining face, and said "No" in a vaguely amused voice. "We are going to a photo shoot!" So I took the photo, but it was kind of backlit by the sky, so who knows. It was so cool that he stopped though! (Larry and Adam arrived about 15 minutes later, but didn't stop.)

Thanks, you guys!!! It was quite the time! I definitely want to go back, maybe next summer. I want to see more of the sites, and hopefully the Sears Tower (if it's not closed.) There was just too much U2 going on to do much else!

Yes, the guys do seem to be truly happy to be here, and especially Larry! He's sounded like he's been in an awesome mood this tour! I would love to bring the stick to Vegas, but by then it might be in a glass case with 5 Larry-lookalike security guards surrounding it in my room.

Larry-lookalike security guards, eh? Hmmmm, where do you find those? Let me know...

I just got my concert pics back, and they're sooo good! I'm so happy! Unfortunately none of Larry giving out his sticks Monday (I was up on the 300 level so it wouldn't have done much good anyway ) but I do have some pretty good shots of Larry behind the drum kit Tuesday. Yay! Plus I got back with my photos and checked the mail and there was the new issue of Details waiting for me with Bono on the cover!!! It's a good day, folks.

I just got mine back, and they were so good!!! Too damn bad I took so many of Garbage and had only 24 exp. BUT-they came out good!!! I need a scanner damnit! I'll get my cousin to scan them (plus a new one of me I REALLY want on the Photo Album) this weekend. Again, if ANYONE has any good pics of Larry up close or giving us the sticks, e-mail me!!!
