July 20th, 2011 – No Line on the Horizon

The last time my wife and I attended a U2 concert was the 1992 Zoo Tour in East Rutherford. She was working and I had just been accepted into graduate school. My wife like the band, I loved them. To me this is “God’s only band”. (I don’t think this is hyperbole).

Last night’??s concern was awesome. Another talented band from New York, Interpol, opened for U2. I used the SoundHound iPhone app to find out what songs they played and of course, bought and downloaded an album instantly.

When the band came out — I’m talking about U2 now — Bono sang to the highest mountains, The Edge reminded me of what guitar heaven must be like, Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton made me want to be Irish. Yes, “God’s only rock band”?, indeed.

NOTE: The venue restricted the use of any kind of “??professional” camera so I left my Nikon at home. This was taken with Camera+ for iPhone.

  1. Tony,
    Wow. You drove all the way up from Maryland for U2?! Dedicated fan! It would
    have been nice to meet you in person. My wife and I had a blast. We left
    after the second song in the encore. I’m at work today and feeling old and
    tired. 🙂

  2. Sounds like you liked the show.  My only small grip is ending the concert with the song “Moment of Surrender” because it’s a slow one and takes some of the energy out of the show.  I loved it though and will have tickets for the next show….for sure.
