U2 360, round two

Since I am bound and determined not to let May happenings slip by, I'm backtracking a bit and figured a recap from the latest U2 concert are most necessary, even if I did write a lengthy post detailing our last concert experience. With that said, I was in awe every bit as much as last time, however we were so close to the band, it felt at times like a private concert . . . wow, wow, wow.  Each minute was pure joy, but I still have my favorites and wish I could see Bono and crew perform all the songs that make my heart soar.

SLC highlights from my "top 20": City of Blinding Lights, All I Want is You, Beautiful Day, Moment of Surrender, Magnificent and Walk On.  Of course, no U2 concert is complete without Mysterious Ways, Vertigo, Elevation and a few "Joshua Tree" favorites.  Also, every time I hear Even Better than the Real Thing I am instantly transported back to that evening . . . truly, the perfect way to begin the concert.  If I had no other life, I would follow Bono and The Edge around the country, but alas, real life awaits, but it was sure nice to lose myself in the brilliance of their music for a few hours back on Tuesday, May 24th.

Some pics:

Scoping out our spot

Chris found us!  If you're Chris, you can get away with showing up at 6:30 and still getting close . . . 
Curt, he owes you big time!

The Fray - very nice

Curt and I escaped the inner circle before the big show

My man, The Edge . . . performed right in front of us all night

What a night - thanks Bono!

Hey Julie!

You are such a sweetheart. Thanks for your thoughtful comment. Your family is BEAUTIFUL too. And you're such a great Mom!

The camera I use is from Costco. It's the Nikon D5000. It's not the best photography camera in the world, but the price was right and it's great for me.

I would love to get together sometime and smack the ball around. Lets try and catch up soon ok?
