Hello Hello!!


October 18th, 2005

Bono plays drums, Edge is from another planet, and The Boss comes out for an encore! @ 08:44 am

eeviolet:
I'm currently feelin: enthralled
I'm currently hearin: the entire philly set list!!!

Wow!

(Understatement of the year.)

Last night's show in Philly was absolutely AMAZING.

I still can't believe I managed to see not only U2 for the second time but BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN as well.

Still. In. Shock.

U2.com has a pretty good report on it - very cute title with Bono's comment, "This can't be a Monday night." Yeah, Bono we all wish it was a Saturday!

Anyway, as I was in the upper level, I can't say I got any special glimpses of the band so I'll leave that to someone else. :-)

But! One last thing - Closing out with "40" had to be most moving ending encore ever. We were still all belting it out after Larry walked off the stage.

God, I love those guys...

Cheers!
-Britt

Belive me, I wish it was a Saturday, I could use the sleep. But the show was worth it. I thought that the show I saw in May was awesome, but this one was even better.

I was trying to go see a show in May and I didn't get tix.
I was super lucky tho when one of my mom's friends wanted to sell theirs since they had already seen them in May and already had tix for Sunday night...

Yeah, I could use the sleep but hell yes it was worth it. :-)

You got lucky. Don't get me wrong, the show in May was really awesome, but last night was amazing.

My coffee is starting to kick in. All is better in my world.

Yay for coffee/caffeine. I can't stand it, otherwise I would had my IV drip going two hours ago...
Water is good for a sore throat though. :-)

Oh and I heard a rumor that the band went to Chickie's and Pete's (supposedly infamous sports bar near the stadiums) after the show...Did you hear anything like that? Someone at work was listening to WMMR this morning and they mentioned that.

God, what I wouldn't have given to see them sauntering into a neighborhood bar!

I would have given anything to be there and see them with Bruuuuuuuce!! one of my other favorite performers. Aside from U2 Bruce is a very close second as far as live experiences goes!!! 2 weeks from today it will be my turn once again to see the boys and I'm sure they'll have some special in store especially since it's the day after Larry's birthday. I'm sure we'll sing happy b-day to him like we did with Elvira in 1992 during Zoo TV. That was incredible!!!

I was at both Sunday & Monday's shows, and let me say, last night's was SOOOOOOO amazing. My seats were awesome (on the right side of the Elipse (Adam's side) and I had a perfect view of everything. I am not a huge Springsteen fan, but it really was a thrill getting to see him. :)

Nice seats -- LUCKY!
I was up in the 'bleeds but I had a great "bird's eye" view, if you will of the whole set...Better than the first time I saw them: from BEHIND THE STAGE. Agh...

BTW: Awesome icon! :-)

Our seats for Sunday's show were near the back of the arena but on the first level. Last night was much better. ;) Although with that stage setup, I don't think anywhere is a bad seat. ;)

Thanks! I have credited the maker in my photo/icon info. ;)

Re: Zombie - My thoughts exactly. 'Cept I had to work (cuz I'm supposed to be some sort of adult now - ha - I graduated from college in May) and stare at a computer all day which made me want to sleep even more...

How were your seats/etc?
(Are you going to be another person I'm insanely jealous of for having amazing seats?)

my dad and i had really good seats. we were behind the stage (not directly behind, more of on an angle) on Adam's side of the ellipse, but we were actually pretty close to all the action. we could see each band member perfectly, except when those damn bead curtains came down (then we could only see Adam and Bono).

but i had a clear shot of the teleprompter at Bono's feet, so i always knew what the next song was going to be, and which speeches he was going to make when.
