U2, Elevation 2001, Sacramento, November 20th by Danielle Scott
I was extremly thrilled to find out that U2 would stop in Sacramento, CA at the last min after trying unsucessfully to get tickets when they had dates in San Jose, CA and Oakland, CA. This was my second time to see them since Popmart. Suffice to say, the concert went very well with No Doubt rocking the arena and getting everybody pumped up! After No Doubt, everybody was awaiting in excitement for the boys to come out and play by stomping on the arena floors which sounded like a loud thunder storm or earthquake. When they finally arrived everybody quickly got up and stood for a good 2 hours singing along and claping like some gigantic karaoke bar. Even tho I did not get a chance to fondle Bono like the lucky touchy feely girl that Bono brought up to the stage (which everybody got a good laugh about), but again I felt like I was closer to heaven listening to Bono's angelic voice dueling with The Edge haunting guitar playing while Larry and Adam were having a blast rocking our world! Thank you again U2 for letting me be a part of your beautiful and unique music.

This was my first U2 show. I have been a fan of the band for many years but never got to go to a show. I drove 3 hours to Sacramento just to see what all of the hype was about. I was one of the lucky 300 who got to stand inside the heart. When Bono came out he looked over the crowd and whispered "wow" he got on a knee and said a prayer then he began to sing. I was so moved my his humble manner. Bono gave everything that night. I have never before been moved at a concert until this show. U2 made me feel so much, I was moved, and choked up when they sang Peace on Earth, Please, and Pride. Bono is a man with real feelings, and I have never felt what I felt at this show. On that night I felt warmth and love shared by 18,000 people and four band mates. This is truly, the best band I have ever seen! I only question myself as to why it took so long for me to finally get to see them live?
