Reply to "What concerts have you been to lately?"

U2 last night at the LA Forum with my son as a warm up for our Europe trip. He's 15 (almost 16) and it was his first big time rock concert. I tried to explain what it would be like but he didn't believe me until it started. We were on the floor within 15 feet of the stage. He said his knees almost buckled during the first song. They are so powerful in everything they do.

I've been to hundreds of concerts but no one does it like U2. The song selections, the way Bono speaks to the audience, the way they interact with each other and the audience, they way they use technology to personalize the experience to everyone in the audience just sets them apart. It literally feels like they playing just for you.

Next Wednesday I get to do it all over again with the same tickets for my birthday with my wine posse. Will be a very different experience (i.e. rip roaring party) but just as special. It is every time......
