I’m wayyyy too tired to give a review right now, but here are some random thoughts and some pictures I took to hold you over.
- RedZone tickets are the bomb. I never had to wait in a line to enter the stadium and we had our own concession and restroom area just outside of our standing area. Worth. Every. Penny.
- Muse was the opening act, and they were OK.
- WifeGeeding was too sick to go, which made me very, very sad. And since all my in-town friends already had tickets, I was left scrambling trying to find someone that would appreciate this event.
- Bono gave a shout out to Tony Romo, Jason Witten, and George W. Bush. But I don’t think Dubya was in attendance. Heck, Bono even gave a shout out to a lot of the surrounding cities like Plano, but he never made it around to Lewisville or Mineral Wells.
- I saw an old college friend, the one that just happen to introduce me to U2 and their greatness.
- One dude was dragged away from the area, it took four men to pull him away.
- The special effects and use of technology was amazing.
- More to come later.

Is the next to the last pic Kevin Bacon?
You had a hard time finding a friend to go with? Hello?!?
I don't have words to describe that show. Awesome in every way imaginable. I'll email a link to my pics when I get them up somewhere.
Couldn't have looked *that* hard. 🙂
Great pictures. You were RIGHT THERE with the band. Wonderful. Ahhhhh… in a perfect world, I would have been next to you…
I was about 4 rows deep from the outer stage on the right of the stage, and everyone was pressing us from behind. A fight broke out right next to us. I wonder if that was the same guy you saw??? (Why do idiots always try to push their way to the front? If you want to be in front, get their early!) I thought the concert I saw in 2001 was far superior in every way. I might have thought differently if didn't stand for 6 hours, but It's hard to enjoy anything when you are on your feet that long I suppose. So I will say it was a good concert, but a poor experience. I thought Muse was pretty incredible. Those guys can really play. I have several of their CD's and I was looking forward to seeing them and they didn't disappoint.( I was saddened they did not play Take A Bow, though.) I guess from my vantage point at the Death Star, (I didn't really see any of it. I just went straight to the floor.) it seems like a poor concert venue. The acoustics were rotten. I thought it would be much louder and I was disappointed by the lifeless crowd. I didn't mind that they didn't play Pride, but at least give me some Bullet the Blue Sky. Sunday Bloody Sunday is always a favorite of mine and I enjoyed the production. Ultraviolet was great too. Four songs of Achtung Baby was a pleasant surprise, but I couldn't help wondering if some of the song choices were made because they are easier on Bono's voice since it is aging.
It was no Al Denson concert though.
Keith, once again you are my hero.
Muse was the open act?! That must have been cool. I think they're pretty great; maybe they didn't play the better songs. Man you were close to the stage… wish I was there :-(. Sorry I couldn't make it; but I'm sure you had a blast still.
Hello Fair Park!
Excellent position you had there! Wooooo! You deserved it, Keith! Good for you!
Really not a fan. Don't get what the fuss is about. I have to agree with what this post has to say. U2 is popular because it has a good management team backing them up.
You're right. Who cares about their music? If I had a nickel for every band I liked because of their superb management team…
