Another Dream Come True

(Why can't people take pictures? This is a fool-proof little point and shoot camera and yet she still screwed up. Oh well. It's just my memories LOL!) 

On Tuesday night Paul and I finally got to go see U2 in concert. We had been waiting a LONG time for this. We bought the tickets well over a year ago. We had a great date weekend all set up and then Bono hurt his back and had to have surgery in Germany. 

We were so excited that the night finally came, even if it was a Tuesday. We didn't get home until 1:00 am. Paul had work, I drove the carpool etc. It was rough but worth it. 

The night wasn't drama free. We decided to take Trax up. What a mistake. It took us two hours to get from the Murray station to the University. The idiots (from Salt Lake City) sent out and email that said use the trains to avoid parking problems BUT they only had one train running. We totally missed the opening act. 

After the concert we decided to not deal with the trains again. The platform was beyond FULL and there wasn't a train in sight. It was after midnight and here we are walking from the University to the Gallivan Center (About three miles) so we could pick up the train that would take us to our  car. Guess what, we only saw one train pass us the whole time. That means it was faster to walk! So. Freaking. Lame. I could go on and on about the public transportation but I won't. It's picture time! 

The stage was crazy cool. 

The big screen that was showing the close-ups while the band performed stretched out and did some amazing things. 

Bono was awesome! 

As the concert was winding down we headed down from our seats hoping to get ahead of the crowd. U2 came back for an encore. Paul and I stopped to listen for a couple of songs. We got to dance together to With or Without you. It was one of those moments we will never forget. The concert was wonderful. U2 sounded amazing live. The night was cool but dry which is a miracle this year. Seeing U2 in concert is something we have both wanted to do for decades and we got to make that dream come true together. We had such a good time. I am so glad that I get to share moments like this with Paul. It was a night neither of us will ever forget. 

I'm still having way too much fun with my new toy. It has to be my most favorite ap ever. Here are some more Hipsta prints from my phone.

Amazing! Glad you got to go and had a great time. You are crossing lots of things off your bucket list.

My daughter got a last minute invitation to go to the U2 concert when it came here. A friend's dad had ended up with 4 tickets (bought two and then seller said no one else was interested in the other 2 so he gave the dad all 4!). Then the dad couldn't find anyone who wanted the extra tickets! So Sarah's friend texted her to see if she wanted to go. She's not a huge fan but she knew this was too good to pass up. She took her boyfriend along and they had a blast. Said it was a fantastic concert.
