Sound: Singer Skills: Bono was excellent, as usual and was very interactive with the crowd and his bandmates. Instruments: The Edge used a Rickenbacker 325C64, A Sunburst Fender Stratocaster, A Cream Fender Telecaster, and a Gold Top Gibson Les Paul. Drums and Basses are unkown due to lack of knowledge of the models and that I was in the Top Row Facing the stage. The Sound was very clear and the music was Exceptionally Great. // 9

Perfomance: Audience: Everyone was going crazy and having a good time, like almost every genre of music shows. U2 played all of there hits; "City Of Blinding Lights", "Vertigo", I still haven't found what I'm looking for, you name it. Scene and Visual Effects were beyond great with 360 stage, looking like a space ship/spider type thing. I think the most interesting parts were the drunk girls dancing, it was pretty amusing. // 10

Overall Impression: East Rutherford, NJ, USA, Meadowlands Stadium (Giants and Jets Stadium), 7/20/11. Opening for U2 was Interpol, a very talented Indie/Alt Rock band. The show set up was very good, but what I hate is they can't have a massive spaceship thing inside The Electric Factory in Philadelphia! Most unforgettable moments were drunk girls and the stage, haha. Tickets were 98 Bux each, but worth the money. It could be the last tour for all we know, I might go to to their next gig if its in Philly or NJ. // 10
