Last night we joined 80,000 other people (give or take a few) in the stadium at the Olympic site to see U2. It was the long awaited concert that had been postponed back in March, and was worth every cent. Although we were quite a way back the huge 'screen' meant that we were very much visually entertained, as well as hearing fantastic music. Brent brought along a pair of binoculars which was handy too.
U2 opened with 'Vertigo' and went straight into 'City of Blinding Lights', which certainly had us singing along at the top of our voices. All the old favourites were played...'New Year's Day', 'Sunday Bloody Sunday', 'Pride' etc. Jenny's favourite song remains 'Beautiful Day', but thought that 'The Fly' was the winner of the night, and Andrew loved 'Where the Streets Have No Name'.
We have some other photos taken on our little camera, that don't do justice to the spectacular light show and stage, but may give you some idea of the atmosphere...go to more photos of the Pocknalls in the side bar.
