Pittsburgh – 5.22.97 Three Rivers Stadium – my first Popmart show

My first Popmart show was on May 22, 1997 at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I had just graduated from college a few days prior – finally! Mike, his girlfriend and I drove the five-hour drive from Baltimore. While waiting outside the stadium I met Ken, one of the guys on the crew who drove one of the trucks that carried parts of the elaborate Popmart stage from city to city. Ken was to be a source for a couple cool U2 experiences.
