October 25, 2001 – Elevation NYC2

For the second Elevation show at Madison Square Garden in New York City on October 25, 2001, Tasha and I had seats.

November 19, 1991 – Achtung Baby

Achtung Baby was released on November 19, 1991. I was very excited for the release of Achtung Baby as I was now old enough at 19 to finally go to a U2 concert.
