Here's what sitting behind the stage gets you at a U2 show:
Bono uses a teleprompter! Perhaps he really does remember all the lyrics to the songs he sings each night, BUT MAYBE HE DOESN'T! Maybe he's losing it!
Ah, not really. The U2 show was excellent. I can't complain. I got chills. I am very predictable. The three highlights of the show were 1) meeting Dean and Christine, who bought our extra tickets and 2) seeing Sunday Bloody Sunday seamlessly switch into Bullet the Blue Sky (even if they didn't finish singing about slapping them bills down and seeing the fighter planes) and 3) remembering yet again that the Edge is brilliant.
Somehow I missed that Elvis Costello was at the show, and missed that Bono sang some of Pump It Up. But here's the setlist if you're curious:
Main Set: City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo - Stories for Boys - Pump It Up, Elevation, Gloria, The Ocean, Beautiful Day, Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, Love and Peace or Else, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet the Blue Sky - When Johnny Comes Marching Home, Running to Stand Still, Pride, Where the Streets Have No Name, One
Encore(s): Zoo Station, The Fly, Mysterious Ways, All Because Of You, Yahweh, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Bad - 40
Admittedly, I love Elvis Costello more than U2, but he would have never found his way up to the cheap seats where I was.
So, love Elvis too, and check this cover of Indoor Fireworks by the lovely Laura Cantrell.
