    I have always enjoyed U2's music and thought they were extremely talented but considered my self a casual fan. My G-friend on the other hand is a die hard and has had the pleasure of seeing them live 5 or 6 times. She bought two tickets a few months ago and insited I go with her. I was not thrilled at the ticket price $130 or something like that, $130 seems a bit extreme for a concert, I am taking her to Vegas this week so she said the tickets were on her.
    I arrived at the show excited but left AMAZED, like I said I have always been a fan but I found a new appreciation for these guys. The sound was excellent and the crowd was so energized it was a truely spectacular show. Many times during the show I found my arms covered with goose bumps. Bono worked the crowd to perfection, he is so sincere and you can tell he really loves what he does. The show started with the lights on all of the sudden U2 just came walking out from the side. Bono grabbed the mic and said lets shake it up a bit, the lights went down after the first song. U2 rocked the Tacoma dome for 2-1/2 hrs and did two encores.

    My only complaint would be that the base was up a little high at times, I found it hard to hear Bono during some songs.

    All in all it was a amazing show and I hope they swing through Seattle again cause I would pay $130 to see them. My ears are killing me and I am really frigging tired so Im going to bed now. Just thought I would share my first U2 show with you folks.

    Congrats on your good fortune, OLO! Wish I could see them on this tour but hopefully they'll release a good video as they have for the past two tours!

    I'd like to see them too if they would swing by a little closer. 130 bucks is pretty stiff.
