            That's why I hate Stadium concerts. Unless you are of the income bracket to afford a ticket in the first 30 or so rows, you can't see **************** and are hearing massively delayed audio. Most people are staring at the video screen anyway, which isn't much different than what people are doing on YouTube.

            Don't get me wrong, I love going to concerts, but if you can't see the performer and the sound quality's crap, why bother?

              I just came back from there. The sound was surprisingly good for a stadium show, undoubtedly owing in part to their 360 orientation in the middle. Very enjoyable show.

                  hey Ken, I`m curious, what did you pay for your tix? I`d love to see U2 at least once but I cannot justify paying $200 for nose bleed seats.

                    I believe the tickets were $56 before the service fees, and I don't remember how much the whole thing was altogether. We did not have stunning seats by any stretch, but good enough that we could see the giant spectacle and everything. As I said, the sound was surprisingly good for a stadium show because of the circular array in the middle (more direct sound vs. ambient).

                    For those of you who don't know, I really dislike stadium shows. This is by far the largest show I've ever attended (96,000!!! ). Too many people, too far away, typically piss-poor sound, traffic hassles, etc. But my friend invited me, and we took a train and a shuttle to get there instead of driving there. On the way back, we walked from the Rose Bowl to Memorial Park in Old Town Pasadena, about a 1.5 mile (~2.5km) walk because the shuttles were jammed. We had a great time, but I can't possibly exaggerate the crushing onslaught of people outside the Rose Bowl.

                    But that said, it was a thoroughly enjoyable show, and the band of course sounded really good. Some of the new songs came off better than the latest offering, in my opinion, and The Edge sounded fantastic as usual.

                    Ernest, U2 announced that next year, they are going to end the North American part of the tour at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The only reason I know this is because as I was writing this post, I received an email from my friend forwarding me more info about the show.

                    I will probably have a few photos to post on my website, but it's not gonna be for a few days.

                      Hey Ken,

                      Wow, $56? (and the service fee was probably $444.00) oke:

                        I checked it out for a few minutes, but the stage was obscured by Bono's head.

                          Yeah, by today's standards, and considering that this is the largest concert tour in history, it's a reasonable cost.

                            In the past he's been really grating to me, but he was, at least by my perspective, more gracious and subdued. He still does the larger-than-life Christ-like poses while bathed in light and intones names of the greats (MLK, Aung San Suu Kyi, others), but genuinely seems to want to help people by urging people to participate in one.org (I think it is) and help Aung San Suu Kyi.

                              In as much as I poke fun at Bono, at least he did recognize that like it or not, he had a responsibility as an influential figure and role model. I used to hate when musicians took that path, but as I've gotten older, I understand it a little more.
