A lifetime's impression ...
December 7, 1984 has become a yearly anniversary for me. It was on that cold, December night that I was taken to my very first rock concert by a generous older brother. What 19 year old brother would want his 13 year old sister hanging around for a night when he's got 2nd row floor seats in a relatively tiny (2,000 seat) concert hall for the 'next' biggest band in the world? Mine did and I'm forever in his debt. U2 took the stage with 11 o-clock Tic Toc that I remember clearly. What else? If an official set list remains from that night I've not seen it, but I remember 'Wire' for that amazing opening and unintelligible lyrics. I remember Bono throwing one of the (many) girls who made it into the stage over his shoulder and sitting another down on an amp stand for a personal audience during another song. Electric Co.? Yes, I think so. Pride? Most definitely as this was the mini tour for Unforgettable Fire. I still have my 45 " single which I hoped I might get signed if we happened to meet them. And lastly, ‘40’, the chorus of which we continued to sing long after they had left the stage. U2 at Massey Hall.; unforgettable ... 29 years later ;-)

I remember being 9 or 10 years old and seeing an ad for this show somewhere and thinking it would be awesome if I could go with my brothers who I credit for getting me into the band in the first place. I guess I was too young to attend though!
