Chilly Night but the band was Hot!
This was my first U2 concert. I had loved the band since Jr. High but being from central Nebraska you don’t get the opportunity to see many concerts. I moved to Omaha after graduating from college, and drove down KC to see the big show with 3 very good friends from college who also lived in Omaha. It was a chilly night. We didn’t have the best seats. We were way up high in stands, but we didn’t care. We were enjoying the music and being there together. My friend Tim who was at the concert with us is blind, but can see very intense light. There were a couple of times during the show where they turned on all the stadium lights and it was so bright and I remember Tim say “whoa, this is so cool”. We all loved the show and talked about every part of it during the 3+ hour drive back to Omaha that same night.
Amazing night!
Tickets to this show were my birthday gift. What a show! Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy became a new favorite, as did the Sugarcubes, and I am so thankful to U2 for introducing new acts to the world. Zoo TV was a sensory bombardment and easily one of the top five live shows I have ever seen.
Stadium full of singing fans
Also my first U2 concert. And it is still my favorite concert memory. It was cold but everyone was so much of the same mind, I think most of us didn't notice. Between the singing and dancing we all did, we stayed warm. As assigned floor seats were pushed forward due to the huge sound/light command post smack in the middle of the floor, my group actually ended up about 10 feet from the stage, front and center. I remember Bono saying they hadn't,"played this next song in awhile," but that there had been some changes in hearts and minds (everyone thought he meant the Irish Peace Process), and it was time to pull the song out of the closet. It. Was. Amazing. Bullet the Blue Sky was absolutely electric. An unforgettable night.
Great show but very cold.
It was my very first time to see U2 and I was very excited.The opening acts were disposable acts of hyprocisy and the sugarcuabes.I enjoyed them but I was really there for U2.I remember it was in the 30's which is cold for October night in Missouri.It would be perfect weather for a football game but cold for a concert.The funny thing is I went to a game a week later at the stadium and the tempature was in the 80's.I felt sorry for the belly dancer but she did a great job. I had at one time wrote down the list of the songs that they did but I have at since them misplaced it or lost it.I remember Larry singing his Irish drinking song and they did a snippet of Bob Marleys redemption song.The phone call that Bono placed was to a time and tempature line in a city in the Eastern time zone.
Belly dancer birth day
I remeber it being a great show at Arrowhead. Chairs on the field meant you could get a great seat without being crushed. I wish they still did that! It was the belly dancer's birth day and Bono gave her a cake.
