Saturday night I finally got to see U2 with some friends. I say finally because I've had my ticket for over a year. We were scheduled to see them last year but Bono had back surgery and the concert was postponed. This was the best concert to see for any U2 fan. They did most of their greatest hits.

Probably one of my favorite U2 songs. Always reminds me of Reality Bites.

Another great early U2 song. Probably one of my favorites from the concert.

Such wonderful lyrics. Also amazing live.

I can't tell you how excited I was that they sang this one. This song and the album it was on was my introduction to U2. I never forget when my brother gave me this CD. I played it over and over again for months. Until I discovered their older stuff and expanded my love of U2.

I was sad they didn't do this but still a great song. I love the video.
What's your favorite U2 song?


  1. I was at the concert, too! What a great show! My favorite song they played was "Beautiful Day" and the moving tribute to Gaby Giffords. Loved her husband's guest appearance! :)

  2. we saw this concert last year and it was awesome. favorite song: "still haven't found what I'm looking for." loved since i was really little little when it first came out.

  3. I am so jealous of you right now. I have loved U2 since....1983! I feel old right now!! So glad that it was awesome!!

  4. It seems like EVERYONE was at that concert! :-) Glad you had a good time

  5. Fanastic!!! So glad you finally got to see them!!

    I love U2 as well, but I was a bigger fan when I was in high school and college than now. Which uh... was a long time ago! War, The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree are my favorite albums. I saw them in concert in 1987, I think... for the Joshua Tree tour. That album is my favorite. My favorite song... hmm... "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" or "With or Without You".

  6. It's gotta be Angel of Harlem! What a gorgeous song!

  7. Lots of great U2 songs here. I went to this tour when it was here last year and loved it! I think one of my favourites that they didn't play was Desire, or the slow one which is about Bono saying sorry to his wife (can't remember the name of it at the moment!)


Shiny! I love comments.
