Electric
I also remember being at probably the best EVENT i ever wittnessed. I was in chicago and tampa 4 360. Very good shows tampa was a better setting and the crowd totally blew chitwn away. BUT on that feb. day electricity actually blew thru the crowd in n out of everyone of us. The new stage and tv monitors all over the fly look bono had the cars hung up. I had awesome seats. I stood in line at a local music store way in back sure i wasnt going and when thay handed out the numbers to 200 people i got the # 1 good thing caue only 3 people got tickets sold out in 90 seconds. I have seen a hundred of shows a dozen for u2 and me n my wife still say that EVENT will NEVER b matched though 360 came as close as that fateful day in feb. keep trying lads. I love you lads.

First Night of Zoo TV
The Opening gig, in Lakeland Civic Center on February 29, 1992 was the greatest concert of my life. Me and a group of friends waited 12 hours to get tickets at a local music store/ticketmaster location. Out of three hundred people waiting in line I was one of six people to get the four ticket maximum. The concert sold out in 3 minutes. Arriving before the concert, we watched as cars carrying the U2 members arrived. When Bono got out of the car he walked about 100 yards to our small crowd (50-75 people) He stoped a few feet from the security line and made a wild twisting Elvis move that made the crowd go crazy. He then straight faced walked back to the arena. It was the coolest thing I have ever seen. Before that I was only a fan, since then I have been a fanatic. The concert opening was awesome. Zoostation and the new ZooTv screens were awesome. It all blew everyone's mind. Nobody had known what exactly to expect. It was a wise choice to start out with 8 songs from Actung Baby, as it rreally made everybody, even the older fans get into the new songs. Thoughout the second half of the concert, I was just praying they would play one more song. As soon as it was over I was ready for more. In closing, the concert had this electricity that I had never experienced before. And those of you who were there that guy with the sign saying "I still haven't found what I'm looking for- U2 Tickets" he got in, he sat right behind me. *****
