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.
