|we were probably just in front of where the GA was in this photo… (but this wasn’t the Winnipeg venue)|
|The LED screen above the main stage…|
Testing out the equipment…
Before U2 came out.. the started showing random facts on the big screen… one of the people didn’t spell Winnipeg right! (Bono came out and apologized and said we know you aren’t WINE-PEG!!) But there were a few ‘boos’ in the crowd… and also at one point they referred to the MB State (not sure where that is!)
I’m not sure where these stats came from.. but thought that the ‘blogs posts today’ was kind of interesting..
Anne and I posed for a photo…. (it was hard to get the WHOLE stage in because of where we were standing!)
The Snow birds came and flew over the stage before U2 came out… they circled the stadium a few times… it was really really cool!!!
I love this photo.. because it shows how many people were around!
The anticipation… smoke started.. and some music…. where are they going to come from? (the bridges moved during the concert.. and connected the main stage to the ramp outside of it)..
U2… does the walk to the stage… firsts glimpses on the big screen!
….The Edge… the first of many ‘walks’ on the ramp in front of me!
Bono looked at ME!!! (and i got a photo…)
Adam Clayton and The Edge…
Bono singing in front of me…
Bono–I think one of the only people that can pull off sunglasses at night… but how does he see!?
The screen at one point in the concert separated.. and made this ‘honey-comb’ over the main stage… it was pretty awesome…. and looked way cool.. with the flashing lights…
One last shot of Bono… (hmmm perhaps I was a bit star struck?) Although one of my co-workers was out for dinner and saw Bono (face to face) as she was leaving the same restaurant he was arriving at!
Larry Mullen Jr… takes his bongo on a walk around the ramp!
It was the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International.. and there was a really neat tribute to the work that Amnesty does in the world!
This was the end of the show… They did return to do an encore after a little video clip, animation thing!
All in all.. I had a blast thanks for coming with me Anne! I danced and sang.. and loved it!! (ear plugs and all!)
*All the above photos were taken with my iPhone 3Gs or my first point and shoot digital camera it has 5.1 mega pixels of greatness!!!
