U2 Hartford Show @ 10:40 pm

I know this was awhile ago...but I was the U2 show in Hartford, CT at the beginning of December in the ellipse, right in front of the stage. I have to say the whole experience was just about the closest thing I have ever had to a religious experience. They were incredible! The best part is that I didn't really do anything special besides show up and I had the best seats in the house. I cried several times. When they played "Gloria" it seriously just about made up for every U2 show I missed in the 80's when I was just a kid. Also, all of the new stuff is mind-blowingly good...especially from someone who was not a fan of the early 90's stuff. I wish I could see them at least once a week.

It was an excellent show. I was there too. I drove 6 hours from State College, PA to go to the show, then a couple of hours later drove another 6 hours back, since I had to be in class at 10:30. One hell of a 24 hour span.

And I would do it again if I had too.

Really great set. I really enjoyed Mysterious Ways, even though the lighting looked a lot like an iPod commercial. And I am from the Hartford area, and the area was all abuzz for this concert.
