So umm.. best day ever! This is how it went:
U2 drove around the city on a flatbed truck playing songs from their new album. Then they drove down the Brooklyn fuckin' Bridge and we, the audience, (we were in the Fulton State Park, right below the two bridges, beautiful spot) were told to wave and cheer at them on the bridge driving by as the cameras in the helicopters hovered overhead filming us and of course the band...
Then they finally arrived in the park and put on the most amazing show ever...it was better than fuckin' Bowie, and that is saying a lot. It was beautiful..the stage in the middle of the park, with the lights of New York City glowing behind them and the Bridge right above them...at sunset...it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
They played their new CD, which comes out tomorrow, I can't wait...and they played a couple old hits like Beautiful Day and then a Who song.
Bono was amazed that everyone knew the words to the new CD already, since it hasnt even come out yet..."How the hell do you all know this shit already!!!?!?!" So everyone sang along with Bono to every song...and there was an enourmous crowd there. Not only the people in the park itself, but the people crowded out on the streets and even up on the freakin' BRIDGES. And then the band said good night and walked off....so all these people started singing some song that I can't even remember right now, but it was something like "Sing us one more song...come back.." and it was BEAUTIFUL. I've never heard so many people singing at the same time. Amazing. And then after the band came back on and saing "Vertigo" for the second time, they left for good and promised to come back in the Spring (!!!!!!). Then the crowd started singing another song together, something about thank you...haha i'm so bad, i was singing too but I just can't think right now because I'm too wired still.
