Text message received Oct 15, 1:02pm from Rob Greer: There is a ticket for the U2 concert available for under 40 bucks on Tuesday. We will leave about 4:30. Who wants it?
Thanks to my quick texting skills, I snagged the ticket and was thus on my way to a wonderful night shared with Bono, The Edge, and Fergie. Below is my description of the night, as dictated to one of my friends on Facebook:
...Speaking of suffering, yes the traffic was pretty crazy last night. Everytime we were going 6mph past a limo on the freeway, I’d try looking in to see if Bono was inside. Black Eyed Peas were on their last couple of songs by the time we got in. Will.i.am started talking to us about how he “got a feeling” U2 was going to be amazing tonight –then they broke into that song (And dancing commenced). Then they left and the waiting began. Not too long, though.
Oh. My. U2.
Tyler, it was amazing. With or Without You, Vertigo, Where the Streets Have No Name, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For… It was so cool because it’s their “360 tour”, so they had this round stage in the middle of all the floor people, and then they had another skinny stage ring around it with bridges connecting the two. It made it so they could reach people from the inside stage and then run around the outside one too. They said they did it to be “more intimate with their audience.” Oh, if only I could have been one of those lucky people down on the floor. They also had this huge round screen in the middle of the stage showing close-ups of the band in HD. And the videography was done so so well. Thank goodness, because my seat was like a mile away and that was the only way that I could tell what was going on down there. They did 2 encores! Oh what a heavenly night. It ended at like 11:30+traffic+being way out in Glendale =I fell asleep so I don’t even know what time it was when I got home.
