Best U2 Concert Experience Ever

Inside the Cowboy Stadium
We were able to go to see U2 this past Monday and had a GREAT time. Scott's brother Craig and his wife Suzanne came up and we all went together. They are hard core fans and are seeing this show 4 times! Thank you to John for watching our kiddos when I know he would have much rather been with us. We got really lucky and were able to get into the inner circle of the stage and stand right next to the back side of the walk around stage. They were right in front of us! It was so awesome. I must say that being in the pit is the best way to really feel like a part of the show. You can see everything so close. I swear Bono made eye contact with me once and when Scott yelled Adam's name he turned and look right at us. It was really cool!!!! I honestly don't even know how to explain how awesome of a night it was.
The opening act was a band out of Europe called The Muse. I wasn't very excited to see them, but they actually sounded really good and put on a fun little show. Then we got to watch all the lighting guys get strapped into their harnesses and buckle into chairs that were hoisted up into the ceiling where they sat holding spotlights for the whole show. It think that would be a sweet job to have!
They had bridges that connected the main stage out to the outer stage and they bridges would move right over our heads in the pit and U2 was just over our heads several times, singing right in front of us!!! AMAZING! We took tons of videos and pictures. If you haven't seen U2 in concert then you MUST. These pictures don't even capture how truly awesome it was.

I'm so jealous of how close you got!!!! We were on the floor to but stuck in traffic forever so didn't get that close. It was so awesome! I would definitely go again! Did you throw your panties to Bono?
