Epic night in Austin
First concert for my best friend and me, both freshmen in high school at the time. The story of getting the tickets in the first place is a long one (involving hanging out in the HEB for two full days listening to the radio for the "visa band" announcement), but we ended up on the 11th row and enjoyed the fans doing the wave around the Erwin Center as we waited for the band to come out (BoDeans were supporting, before anyone knew who they were). Obviously it was an epic show, but here were some highlights. Bono brought a guy up to play People Get Ready ("I know there's someone in Austin, Texas who knows these three magic chords"), someone who was in a band (obviously...this is Austin), and he did a great job. Bono also at some point asked if he could be the yellow rose of Texas, not having any idea what that meant. It was one of the few places on the tour where they did One Tree Hill, and I just remember that the ending was quite emotional. They also did Spanish Eyes, a B-side, which seemed to be a very improvised moment. There was also a story in the paper the next day (or maybe the day after) that the band went and played at a local bar that night after the show...I believe it was Antone's. Overall, an amazing introduction to U2 in concert for me and my buddy.
