U2, 11/03/2001, Philadelphia, by Colleen
I just saw U2 last night in Phildelpha, I swear this was the best show that I have ever seen in my whole life. They played all the good songs. And the tribute to NYC and the people aboard the planes and FDNY and all was amazing. U2 puts on the best shows! :)
U2, 11/2/01 by WildhorsesU2
It is impossible to describe a U2 show to someone who has never been to one. I just got home and I can still hear Bono's voice: alle alle alle alleluia, Edge's guitar: the opening to Streets, watching Larry play on the large screen, Adam smilling at the crowd's reaction. I am always amazed at the passion of U2's music, and tonight's show was as passionate as any before. They have truly earned the greatest band title, if that is what they want. From Elevation, to Bad, to Bullet the Blue Sky and finally Walk On, there was never a lull, never a song that lost the crowd. As usual, the band performed an intense set, with virtually no breaks between most songs. Bono was energetic, passionate and yes, as sexy as ever. Thank you, U2 for bringing your talent, your commitment to peace and freedom back to Philadelphia and to America.
U2, November 2nd, First Union Center, Philadelphia by Shannon Collins
I walked inside the First Union Center with my parents behind me with the impression that because our seats were pretty far away, we would be missing out. I couldn't have been more wrong. Any seat at a U2 concert is a good seat. I hadn't seen U2 live before so I wasn't quite sure of what to expect. Never have I experienced such a strong vibe of emotions coming from a crowd. Everyone was on their feet singing, and the stadium echoed in unison. The whole band is amazing on stage...they were born to be live. The seizurific lights alone were worth the ticket expenses! When they played "One" and began to scroll the names of the victims from 9/11 on a screen it was beyond powerful. Every name that ran up the screen within a few seconds was an individual person who we are all deprived of now...it was a great show of respect and at that point I could see that my parents were highly impressed with U2 and their musical and visual impact. They closed the night with "Walk On" and couldn't have put together a better blend of songs. Finally a band that has mastered perfection.
