Elevation Albany 6.2.01 Pepsi Arena

Saturday June 2, 2001 Albany, NY

I flew up to Albany and hung out with Tasha and her sister all afternoon outside the Pepsi Arena. I met a bunch of people from the U2 internet community. I also saw Bono drive in for the sound check.

U2 Elevation Albany 6.2.01

I saw this Elevation show from the seats, on the side of the stage. PJ Harvey opened. Bono’s voice was rough, apparently he was sick. There were a lot of changes in the set list. U2 played Mysterious Ways after Until the End of the World. The Fly was performed in the first encore. Unchained Melody was played after One. The Beatles’ In My Life was played before Stuck in a Moment. Van Morrison’s Gloria was played after Desire. And they played Gone! But they did not play New Year’s Day, In a Little While or Sweetest Thing.
