I'm currently feelin: excited excited

In my quest to edit these pictures, I could not quite figure out how to zoom and unblur, so these will have to do for now:


This be who I saw on Tuesday night!


This be the name of the tour!


And this be the name of the band. :)


The stage before the show. It doesn't look quite as pretty at this point.


Kev and me eagerly anticipating!


Kev'n!!


Still waiting...


Me!!


Keane!!! The next several shots are going to be Keane, so here we go...



















And now the main event!


Bad shot. But this is the City of Blinding Lights opener.


Bono's feet. And somebody's head. Grrrr.


I'm not quite sure what I was trying to capture here!


Bono stomping around. He looks like some kind of phantom here!


Bono and Adam


U2!


And again... U2!!


Bono again... perhaps during Elevation?


El-e-va-tion!


Sometimes the monitors were the only way to get a decent picture.


The band again, especially Adam and Edge.


Bono, and Edge's head is missing up top.


I don't know what song we're up to here.


I love these boys!!! Next is a series of not so great shots...




















Sunday Bloody Sunday... I want his headband!!






Monitors again...


This came out pretty good, I think.


Bullet the Blue Sky!


Some more Bullet


Miss Sarajevo








Where the Streets Have No Name. The crowd went more insane than usual around this time.


Bono and Adam


Annoying dude's head again


Muuuuch better!


It's the Edge!!! And I believe he's playing Stuck.


Fast Cars... *SIGH*








Once more, the monitors!


"40"


How long to sing this song...


My one and only picture of Larry, which obviously didn't come out so hot. He was the last to leave the stage.

As I said back in May, someday I'll see them again.

In that second-to-the-last picture, is Bono wearing a cowboy hat? And is the picture flipped or did Edge and Adam actually play on opposite sides of the stage from their usual haunts?

I'm impressed you could remember which songs were playing for which picture. I'd never be able to do that!

During "40", Edge and Adam switched instruments.

And yes, that's a cowboy hat.

Nice pictures.

And as for knowing which songs go with which pictures, it's these weird photographic type of memory I have. I look at specific aspects of the picture (the order they're in, the specific lighting used in each song, where the band members are standing... it's weird, I know!!) and I can kind of pinpoint at what part of the show I'm up to. It's a weird talent, bur I'm glad to have it. :)

Thanks for sharing these! :)

And would someone tell Bono that he's Irish, not Texan? (Maybe then he'll lose the cowboy hat. *g*)

Elevation was GREAT!! And there was a snippet of Walk On I think, so that's a little something even if they don't play the whole song. :)

Thank you!! No, I don't mind at all. :)

Enjoy them!! Popping your U2 concert cherry is a milestone in your life... truly one of life's greatest experiences! I'm kind of hoping I save enough of money to be able to go back to MSG next month, hahaha. They're soooo worth it!!

You got Vertigo twice?!? See, *I* was praying for them to come out and do that one again. I went to the NJ show in May that didn't have Vertigo twice, so I was hoping I'd catch that again! Nice that you got the last NY show though! :)

Ah, see...Vertigo is probably my least favorite song on HTDAAB (but i still like it!)

The transition from Yahweh to Vertigo was odd.....I wish they would have ended with All I Want Is You or Bad (they didn't play either song) rather than play Vertigo again.

But oh well.....The show was, of course, amazing....My first U2 show! :^)

Ahhhh, Yahweh just rolled right into Vertigo! That I did not know. Wow, that's interesting. Well, I did not even get Yahweh! I got Crumbs, which was fine by me since they played Yahweh in May and while it was very good, it was acoustic and I think it should have been played the way it originally was. Vertigo's not my favorite on Atomic Bomb, but it definitely gets me in a good mood! I'm so glad you had a great first experience!!!
