Opening Night of U2ieTour was fantastic! Vancouver is fantastic! I’m having a blast. Ok now on to the show!
I did not wait in the GA line at all. I arrived at 6pm right before the doors were supposed to open. I stood at the rail at the e stage right next to where Larry was going to be. See there is no need to wait in line all day unless you want the experience. Here is how the show went:
U2 came on at 8:15
Out of control

I Still haven’t found what I’m looking for
Bono thanked Larry for his strength and then thanked Larry Mullen sr
Larry smiled and waved to me as he was leaving so I missed Edge falling off the stage, but he walked by us smiling after. I knew someone was going to fall the stage, but I thought it would be Bono.
I saw Edge’s wife, Adam’ wife, Guy OSeary, Gavin Friday, Willie Williams and I said Hi to Stu.
I have lots of videos and pics I’m posting and will do a full blog and review when I get back to the states, but wanted to get this out tonight.
