Tuesday Casey, Kandace and I got to attend the U2 360 concert at Rice Eccels Stadium. We have had the tickets for over a year, or I should say I got the tickets for Steve, Casey and Kandace last year to attend the concert. But then the concert was cancelled and rescheduled for May 24th, just one week after Steve's knee replacement surgery. Unfortunatley Steve was not up to going to the concert and I got his ticket by default. So Tuesday night, we got a couple of "Babysitters" Tineke and Margaret to come and stay with Steve while we headed off in "Blueberry" to the concert.
We were there with thousands of other crazy fans. You could feel the excitement in the air. Here are Casey and Kandace waiting for the concert to start.
Casey just LOVES it when I make him take pictures with me...can you tell?
So when we got there we found out that they had closed our section of seats due to restaging and they "Upgraded" our seats. Well when we went to find our "Upgraded" seats they had moved us from row 14 to row 57. Kandace was not happy and grabbed the tickets and said she was going to go talk to them. We didn't think that we would get anywhere, but when she came back we had seats in the middle section on row 16...now that is an "UPGRADE". So, we really did have sweet seats!
The FREY started the concert and they were so amazing!
Oh....me taking more pictures....Casey was just so thrilled, can you tell by the look on his face?
The FREY finishing up their gig. After the FREY there was a change of stage to setup for U2. This is a picture of the camera crew climbing into their seats for the concert. It looked like a fun carnival ride.
Here we are, waiting for U2 to come out and start the concert. Once the sun went behind the mountain, it got COLD, but at least we didn't have any rain!
And finally the concert started....here is "The Edge" playing the guitar. The start of a great night!
The concert was completley sold out! This is a shot of the 360 screenn showing not an empty seat in the crowd.
Bono treating us to " A Beautiful Day" one of my favorites!
Bono and Adam Clayton...."With or Without You"....Made me want to be "WITH" Steve! I felt bad he had to miss this great concert, but I will make it up to him and surprise him with new tickets sometime soon!
