More to the point- two more U2 shows during their Joshua Tree tour. I attended the Philly show and DC show. I am going to lump my thoughts in to a list format as I want to do.
- This tour does not feel like a regular U2 tour. In that they are not supporting new material.
- Because it is in a stadium, most everyone I would want to hang out with is scattered all over the place
- Due to previous point, people are showing up at all sorts of different times
- There are a LOT of "bucket list" attendees to these shows
- The screen is HUGE, amazingly crisp, and amazing
- The b-stage is great, but not utilized as much as I thought it would be
- For Philly I was left of the b-stage, and was not happy with the angle due to the camera boom located there. D'oh!
- For DC I was right of the b-stage, and pretty darn happy with the angle
- If I had gone to a third show, I would have stood between the b-stage and the main stage. Oh well!
- For Philly I shot blindly above my head. Too many damn mobiles out. My arm got tired doing that.
- For DC I was much closer to the stage/rail, not nearly as many mobiles in front of me to block photos.
- At each show I wound up standing next to another fan photographer. It was not planned, it just happened. Nice to be able to talk about the show through the lens.
- Still very sorry about blocking my one buddy at Philly, after he tipped me on the shot below. Still feel bad about that.
