360 Tour

Larry Sings in Oakland! U2 360 6.7.11

The U2 360 show in Oakland had the same set list as the previous three shows in the US, but was a little different. First, the baseball infield was fenced off, so the GA area was smaller – as was the inner circle behind the stage. Second, there were two opening bands, so U2 didn’t come on until [continue reading]

U2360USA Days 23 & 24 – Seattle to Oakland

Over 800 miles and 2 days later, we’re in Oakland, California. I’ll be in California for the next 13 days and am really looking forward to my time here! We left Seattle just before 1pm yesterday and arrived in Eugene, Oregon just before 6pm. It was the first day I drove to another city [continue reading]

U2360USA Days 19 & 20 – Portland to Seattle

My stay at the Hotel Vintage Plaza in Portland got even better and better. I literally made my upgraded luxurious suite our haven for 36 hours, only going outside to walk the dogs to the park – but I got a good feel for this liberal, dog-friendly city. It was nice just to do nothing after [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 17 – road trip part 1 recap

I consider this 17th day of my U2 360 tour across America the end of the first part of my road trip. My mom and aunt left today – they had been with me since the beginning. We had breakfast in our hotel and then went back to the fabulous Grand Sierra Resort to gamble for a couple hours before [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 16 – Reno

While everyone else (well at least a bunch of U2 fans I know) is in Winnipeg for the U2 show tonight, I was losing much money at the slots in Reno. Since I am not doing the Canada shows on the U2 360 tour, I decided to spend  my week between the Salt Lake City and Seattle U2 shows in Reno and [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 15 – Lake Tahoe

We started out our day just like yesterday, with a yummy filling breakfast in our hotel. But that’s where the similarity ended. This 15th day of my U2 360 tour across America brought me, my mom and my aunt through Carson City and into the snow of Lake Tahoe. Our first stop was just about [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 14 – Reno, Nevada

Day 14 of my U2 360 tour across America was a lucky one for me – lucky at the slots that is. I returned to my hotel room this evening with the same amount of money I left with this morning. My mom, my aunt and I started off our day with a yummy, filling breakfast at our hotel restaurant. [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 13 – SLC to Reno

We’re in Reno! It’s not Vegas, but it’s still pretty cool. Las Vegas was too far south to be on the way from the U2 show in Salt Lake City to the U2 show in Seattle. We left Salt Lake City just after 8am this morning, stopped 3 times, and arrived in Reno, Nevada just after 4:30pm. [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 12 – Salt Lake City

Day 12 of my U2 360 tour across America brought me to Temple Square in Salt Lake City today. It was quite beautiful, and luckily beautiful weather as well. We spent time in both visitor centers, saw the Brigham Young statue and the Temple, listened to an Organ recital at the Tabernacle, visited [continue reading]

U2 360 Salt Lake City 5.24.11

The U2 360 show in Salt Lake City was fantastic – better than the opener in Denver, even though I didn’t get any Larry love. The audience at the University of Utah was so much more into the show than the crowd in Denver. The set list was the same except for the addition of Love [continue reading]

U2 360 Denver 5.21.11

U2 360 in Denver was a fantastic show – a great way to open this US leg of the 360 tour. It was a great set list that included Pride, All I Want is You, Stay, Zooropa, Scarlet, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me and Even Better Than the Real Thing. It was the first time I had heard Zooropa [continue reading]
