Bono has my purple umbrella

So I went to see U2 at the Garden on Saturday night. It was great, went by in like two seconds and I loved every minute of it. Bono has the energy of a 5-year-old with ADD that just ate seven candy bars and whose Mom took his Rittalin so that she can keep up. Seriously.

Here is the set list:City Of Blinding Lights, Vertigo / Rockaway Beach (snippet), Elevation, The Cry, The Electric Co. / Send In The Clowns (snippet) / I Can See For Miles (snippet), An Cat Dubh, Into The Heart, Beautiful Day / Blackbird (snippet), Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, Love And Peace Or Else, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet The Blue Sky / The Hands That Built America (snippet) / When Johnny Comes Marching Home (snippet) / New York New York (snippet), Running To Stand Still, Pride (In The Name Of Love), Where The Streets Have No Name, Oneencores: Zoo Station, The Fly / Jean Genie (snippet), Mysterious Ways, Original Of The Species, All Because Of You, Yahweh, Vertigo

Yes, they played Vertigo twice, which I am guessing they did because they are U2 and they can do that.

Just for fun, you can compare the set list to last time I saw them:Elevation, Beautiful Day, Until The End Of The World, Mysterious Ways, Kite, Gone, New York, I Will Follow, Sunday Bloody Sunday / Get Up Stand Up (snippet), In My Life (snippet) / , Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of, In A Little While, Desire, Stay (Faraway, So Close!), Bad / Wild Horses (snippet) / 40 (snippet), Where The Streets Have No Name, Pride (In The Name Of Love)encores: Bullet The Blue Sky, With Or Without You, The Fly, One, Walk On

Both were awesome experiences and I will never forget them, especially because I left my Duane Reade purple umbrella under my chair at the Garden. Bono, that was just for you. Stay dry my friend.
