U2 at Continental Airlines Arena

POST #    1715

Last night, I went to Continental Airlines Arena to watch U2 on their Vertigo tour. It seems that any U2 concert you go to is at least visually stunning (even Pop Mart was visually appealing). Despite the visual awesomeness of the concert, I must say that it wasn't as good as the Elevation Tour back in 2001. It was good, just not awesome.

I would write more, but it was a late night so I'll just leave you with some pictures and clips. Oh, and I should add that picture #3 is of people holding up their phones.

Clips from the show:
- Vertigo (first set, 1:55, 5 mb .mov file)
- Sunday, Bloody Sunday (2:59, 3.5 mb .mov file)
- Sunday, Bloody Sunday (1:52, 3.6 mb .mov file)
- Mysterious Ways (1:32, 2.4 mb .mov file)
- Vertigo (encore, :30, 746 kb .mov file )

kyle, they did indeed play it twice. 2nd song and last song. crazy. bono explained it as being italian or something.

daniel, there was a no camera notice. there are several different ways to sneak a camera in. you just have to be creative. and the pat down at continental wasn't very intrusive.

Larry Mullen, the U2 drummer, had a house just up the street from me when I lived in nyack. I never saw him though.

I didn't think it was possible, but I hate u2 even more now.
