I love you, too.
But I also love U2.
Shon and I have had a long tradition of sitting in the cheep seats. When we were dating, we went to a Jazz game and sat on folding chairs behind the back row. The night we became engaged, we went to Les Miserables, and sat on the back row. It was the same for Wicked. When we lived in New Orleans, I would go to the Orpheum and watch the New Orleans Symphony rehearsal - $4 tickets and you get to know the conductor too. Next week we will be going to see the Nutcracker, and sitting near the back. When we heard U2 was adding a Brisbane show to their 360 tour, we splurged and got the better seats.
Here's a little video I took with my iphone. The sound quality is awful because of the volume - as much from the crowd as from the band!
We had no idea how good those "seats" would be! I say "seats" because we were in the standing area. Robert and his son Ethan took Bryce and went early while I picked up Shon from work (and calmly looked for missing tickets!) The early bird gets . . . the awesome spot in the exclusive "red zone," inside the circular walkway, 20 feet from the stage! We were close enough to make eye contact with Bono. We could have jumped up and touched him when he crossed over the moving bridge (thought I'm sure Mr. Big Security Guard would have stopped us.)
