What an awesome show. They were a new band that hadn't caught on yet, but I worked in a record store and we loved them and played U2 all the time in the store. I hope the picture turns out - it's a copy of my ticket stub from this show. I don't remember a lot, but I do remember going into the ladies room at the same time as the lead singer for Bow Wow Wow (and she was very petite). I went to the concert with an eclectic group of guys that I worked with at Record and Tape Collectors - a record store in Baltimore, MD (I wonder what Eric and Drew are up to now?). I was 19 years old and in college at the time. There weren't many people at the concert - I'm guessing less than 500, and by the end of the show probably only 50 of us still there because we were able to move to the first row. I remember October, Gloria and I Will Follow, but can't remember what else was played (hey, I'm a 47 year old mother of two teenage boys - my memory is shot). At the end of the show, Bono was lifted out into the audience (I think I got to touch him because we were so close). I am seeing them for the 4th time Tomorrow night at FedEx Field in Landover, MD and I can't wait. I wish I was as close as the first time, but I'm just glad to be going. I love their new album and hope they play Moment of Surrender tomorrow night. Hope this helps and can't wait to see if anyone else who attended has any memories that will jog mine.
