Columbus – 5.24.97 Ohio Stadium

After the Pittsburgh show, Mike, his girlfriend and I drove the three hours to Columbus, Ohio for our second Popmart show on May 24, 1997 at Ohio State University. We saw Bono get off the bus, but he was swarmed by fans. It wasn’t orderly as it had been on ZooTv. We got a few pictures though. We also signed the banner hanging outside the stadium. Our seats weren’t too close for this show.
