Thursday April 12, 2001 Tacoma, WA
I arrived in Seattle yesterday. John and I went to the Space Needle, dinner at a great seafood restaurant then listened to some music at this great Irish pub. Today we had lunch at this cute pub before getting in the GA line at the Tacoma Dome – luckily the sun finally came out.
Tonight’s show in Tacoma was the best ever! Unbelievable! 2 encores! U2 played over 2 hours. Edge’s 5 kids were there. PJ Harvey opened. John and I stood just to the left of the tip of the heart. Changes to the show were Pride, Desire, Ground Beneath Her Feet, I Will Follow and Unchained Melody were played; but Dicsotheque, Staring at the Sun, Even Better Than the Real Thing and Gone were not played. I can’t describe how I am feeling right now! I literally almost cried twice toward the end of the show. I had a great time hanging out with everyone in the GA line for 3 hours, and we all stood together at the tip of the heart. This show was so amazing that it was a blur. I’m having trouble remembering details. Felt like U2 played forever!
