Hello Hello!!

U2 in Detroit, again @ 02:02 pm

empresskatums:
I have to agree, the concert last night was absolutely awesome! I ended up on the rail of the ellipse, perfectly centered for their performances out there. Never been that close to them before! And for the people going tonight (I'll see you there!) - the Palace has no problem with cameras.

Two questions now:

1 - Did anyone get any good pictures of the show last night? I got a few, but for the most part they're very blurry.

2 - Anyone know where recordings of the concerts are available? I have bootlegs of all my past U2 concerts, and I'd like to keep a complete collection!

Holy crap, I think you were RIGHT NEXT TO ME. Were you standing beside a blond girl with a black shirt on? (She left before the encores.) I was on the other side of her. AND HOLY CRAP IT WAS BEYOND AMAZING.

The pictures that turned out well are posted in my journal right now - I just picked the 4 best ones. Please let me know when you upload yours!

That is absolutely insane. :D

I went crazy when they played "40." I have been waiting so long to hear "40" live. It was definitely the best part of the show!

Last night was amazing too, but I'm really glad I wasn't in the same spot because they were hardly on the extended stage at all. A lot less lively overall... But they ended with "Bad," and GUH. That's all I gotta say.

Your pictures came out fantastic!! Especially the Edge ones - and the ones of the main stage are literally a million times better than mine are. I saved all of 'em to my computer! :D Thank you!!

For pictures, try the Flickr group for atu2. Go to http://www.flickr.com and look for the @u2 group.

For audio, register over at http://www.u2torrents.com and look around. There's also a mailing list for the site on yahoo groups called u2torrents. However, it's considered bad etiquette over there to ask for a show before two weeks have passed. So, patience, even though it's HARD to wait! I know!
