Best. Concert. Ever.

After an extraorindarily long hiatus from blogging (sorry about that), I am back to tell you I went to the coolest concert ever last night!  Chris got floor tickets on Monday for Houston’s U2 concert at Reliant Stadium (never been to a stadium tour,by the way).

I (very reluctantly) got talked into going at 5pm so we could try to get into the pit (although U2 calls it the “inner circle”). I must also confess that I have never quite understood Sarah and Brian’s fascination with the pit – until last night.

The opening band, Muse, was like an old school British 80s rock band – right down my alley. So the night was off to a good start.  And our mediocre position in the inner pit improved greatly when the bathroom weenies left between Muse and U2.  We went from say 3 o’clock to 5:30 baby.  It was great.  We also moved back a bit, so we were 1 person deep from the outer stage (and those people were so short!!!).

The bridges from the main stage to the outer ring move around and were 4-6 feet away at least three times…it was so a-w-e-s-o-m-e!  It almost pains me to write it cause I sound so much like Sarah writing about Springsteen. 🙂

So here are some pictures – no slide show from me (sorry, don’t know how and Sarah is busy with work so she won’t fix me this week either); no page jump either.  It’s low tech week at the Garden 🙂

And before I go, if U2 hasn’t come to you yet – pay for the babysitter and pony up for the floor – its sooooo worth it!!!

PS.  I hurt from head to toe (especially toes – heels are necessary for added height but not good for the jumping and dancing 😉 How does Bono do it at 49, and Bruce at 60?

    And I thought Jen was the U2 fan?!

    Thanks for the post.

    Glad you two (pun there!) had a great time 🙂 I’ve never done the “pit” or “inner circle” thing but have been to a lot of good concerts at our arena, but, given its size, everyone is up close and personal!
