U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015


So my husband Steve is a HUGE U2 fan and when they decided to tour again he was really excited until he realized they were not coming any closer to us then Madison Square Garden which is 6ish hours away from us in VA. So he was very sad they were not coming here and he wasn't going to see them. So since it was around Christmas I decided to get him tickets. (Awesome wife status right?) 



So the concert was Thursday... and IT WAS AMAZING!!! Steve has seen them 21 times and I have seen them 7. This for me was the best concert of their I have seen. They played a mix of new songs and older songs. But what made the concert for me was they played my two favorite songs back to back. One of which they rarely play in concert. All I want is you and With or Without you. 

And as I was writing this I was doing some reading on the concert and notice that on the U2 website that I am quoted from my twitter feed "Lisa (@princess3730) was also happy that All I Want Is You turned up: '21 shows and U2 Has never played my favorite song and they played it tonight! THANK YOU "  WHAT???? Funny thing as I was sending this to my husband he was sending it to me.. lol - If you want to read the recap here it is ~ http://www.u2.com/tour/date/id/45561346

Raised by Wolves - song about the Dublin and Monaghan bombings on May 17th 1974 -  Three bombs exploded in Dublin during rush hour and a fourth exploded in Monaghan almost ninety minutes later. They killed 33 civilians and a full-term unborn child, and injured almost 300. The bombings were the deadliest attack of the conflict known as the Troubles, and the deadliest terrorist attack in the Republic's history. Most of the victims were young women, although the ages of the dead ranged from five months to 80 years. via Wiki
