U2, New York City, 24.10.01 by Jonathan DeLoca
I went to the show on 10/24/01. And to start off I had the cheap seats if you can call them that; the last row in the house. U2 is completely worth the line waiting and loss of sleep. Only when every one stood up me and my girl friend couldnt see. I couldn't have that so I picked myself and her up out of those seats and moved us down. Running at full speed to the nearest balcony and parking my self over the rail I roared at the top my lungs in my own excitement and elevation.
The house continued to erupt all night long as an invigorated Bono and incendiary Edge ripped through what was the most amazing concert I have ever been too. Larry and Adam were the shit. I couldn't contain my excitement the band was on fire. Every one was doing there part and loving every minute of it. It's hard to point out a high point to the whole show because the entire show was a high point. When Bono shouted at full force during New York that "home... is where New York city is' I think I found my own high point. Its not where you are born. New York is a city that lives in your heart; only true newyorkers know this and Bono like myself is a true NewYorker.
