Pittsburgh vs. Boston? @ 01:45 pm

Hey all, I have a question.

I've been to see the boys twice, once in Providence, RI (10/31/2001) and once in Boston (5/26/2005) -- my next show is on the 22nd in Pittsburgh.

How do you think a Pittsburgh crowd will compare to Boston-area crowd?

It's generally crazy in Boston with Bono saying things about how Boston is like home to them, and the Irish connection, etc, etc.

And so far I've found Pittsburgh concert crowds in general (at other artists' shows) to be kind of...subdued.

Anyone seen U2 in Pittsburgh before? Any thoughts?

I went to shows in Boston in May and October and all the shows were amazing. The one in October were probably the best crowds though.

Pittsburgh is subdued.

This will be my 3rd PGH show seeing them, and the pop tour, down in front was all 30-40 yr olds, and also seemed to be a lot of 30-40 yr olds in audience during the elevation tour.

Sadly, PGH doesn't have a really big young fanbase for U2 so it's mostly all 26-45 yr olds and a smattering of teen/college kids.

It's probably going to be a good show, but a bit of a 'rest night' for the band. Don't expect anything out of the norm as it won't happen in PGH sadly.

Still... for us that can't afford to go elsewhere to see the big shows, it's as good as it gets.

Boston was insane. I went to One may show and both October shows. THe second night I was GA. It was sheer madness during Elevation.
