I'm a new U2 fan. Went to Raleigh and Tampa for Muse and because my sister has been a U2 fan for as long as I can remember. She took me to the popmart tour and I remember loving it.
It was really hard for me to admit to her I loved every minute of it. I have quite a bit of catching up to do. Also the fans at Raleigh in the GA line were some of the nicest fans I've ever encountered. We are looking forward to the next tour!
I've added some of the photos we took.

Oh my goodness, bb, these are some REALLY good photos! Were you using one of those SLR / professional cameras?

I love the second Bono one, it looks so magical.
And OMG HAI LARRY MULLEN.

Thanks everyone.
I was front row so it was pretty easy to get decent photos especially with all their lighting. Wow!

I used a Fuji Finepix F10 and a Canon G10. The Canon ran out of battery at the begining of U2's set in Raleigh so most of those are with the Fuji.
I really really love the Canon. It is new to me still so I haven't really figured out the workings. The video on it isn't too great though. (http://www.youtube.com/user/curehalo)
Anyone know of a really good point and shoot with HD video?
But I highly recommend the Canon G10. They just came out with G11.

The Panasonic Lumix range has a number of cameras that shoot in HD. I just got mine as a replacement for my Minolta that died before the tour. Unfortunately, I've only uploaded 1 pic I've taken from U2360 (bah, too busy going to gigs!) but you can see it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/discreet_music/3947878317/

I was in Raleigh too. What a great show!

That photo is super clear! Great shot.
I was thinking about the Panasonic Lumix ZS3. Seems to do great HD video.

Greta pictures, and wow, there are some AMAZING pictures here like the one were Bono swings from the mic.

OMG, Adam's purple bass is soooo pretty, I'm in love with it! (:

I hate you because you were so close and got these amazing photos, and because Muse was your opening band. SO jealous.

My sister took me to my first U2 show during the PopMart tour, too! It's been love ever since :)

Wow you were close! Love the pics. The band just looks great. I love the one of Bono leaning over the edge of the stage while using the circular mike to balance. Awesome :D

Beautiful, beautiful photos!

I was at Raleigh, in the GA line and then the inner circle. It was my first U2 show. :)

May I please use these photos in backgrounds/icons? I'd definitely credit you for them.
