Portland show pic spam! @ 11:48 am

My husband and I were lucky enough to be at the Portland show last night and it was everything we were hoping for...and more. What an awesome show! Probably the best I've been to.

My husband used the new digital camera for the first time and didn't realize it could do video snippets, so we have a few he took accidentally that are mostly static because the camera was in his pocket (heh heh!), but he also got some great pictures that I'd thought I'd share.

Like Bono with no sunglasses!

Bono loves Adam

Larry sings

The whole band

The Edge

The crew thanks U2

Towards the end of the show the crew donned lettered t-shirts that spelled out "The U2 Crew would like to thank Edge, Bono, Larry and Adam for a great 2005". When the band came back out to perform an encore they seemed quite surprised, pleased and touched.

When I'm able to process this a bit better I might make some more comments about it, but for now I'll just say what a band! What a night! They really are the best in the world.

Sigh. I was going to go to that. . I was going to pay my way and everything, but after giving my hopes up my mom said she wouldn't be able to take me even if I DID have the money. . .

I envy you.

Twas a pretty good show.

I actually really liked Kanye.

I took over two hundred pictures, and would like to share them, but it's kind of a pain since I'm banned under my main name so posting is kind of a pain.

fantastic pictures! i too was there last night and am still processing. our group was in the bomb shelter too, right on the rail under the edge's feet, we had the Zootopians against Poverty banner draped over the rail...my first GA experience. it was such a fun show! larry smiled a few times (instant karma, 40 etc) and actually came out from behind the drum kit to wave at the crowd just before leaving for an encore break.

Thanks you for sharing! I was there last night, my first U2 concert, and didn't bring a camera (wouldn't have gotten good pics anyway, I was up in the 200-level), so these pictures are really appriceated. :)
