An incredible stadium experience.
First...Bono was out by the loading dock entrance talking to fans, signing autographs.
The show was powerful. Bono stopped in the middle of a song to throw a security guard out. He didnt like the way he roughed up an exuberant fan.
As I have always said, a U2 show is not just the show on stage. The audience reaction is as much a part of the show as the band's music.
No where else does a band connect with the audience like them.
This show was the pinnacle of that aspect.
From a 24th row floor seat, I was looking around the stadium as much as the stage.
The vision of each upper deck section, 20 perfectly planned squares of 50 rows by 40 seats, with 4000 arms flailing in some sort of unison was so breathtaking, I still have chills as I type this review.
Bullet the Blue Sky was most memorable as Bono used the spotlight in such a way that only be done in a perfect Bowl Style stadium like the Silverdome.
