Philly – 5.14.05 Wachovia Center – my first Vertigo show

Saturday May 14, 2005 Philadelphia

The best things happen whey you don’t plan on them. Today Tasha and I were supposed to meet at the Wachovia Center at 7 and planned to sit in our seats behind the stage. But Jenny called around 3 to say she got us GAs. Tasha and I went in around 7:30. Kings of Leon opened. We stood about halfway between the catwalk and soundboard. During the fourth song, “Electric Co,” this lady from U2 came up to us because Tasha was dancing and gave us wrist bands to get inside the ellipse. We stood one person back in front of Adam. When Larry sang during “Love and Peace,” I ran to the back of the ellipse. I was jumping up and down as if I was on a pogo. U2 played “Running to Stand Still,” “An Cat Dubh,” “40,” “Zoo Station,” “Into the Heart” – all which they did not play on Elevation. It was a really good show, and I was very excited but I don’t feel the craziness as in past tours. Maybe that’s a good thing.
