We arrived in NYC 5:15am the morning of the first show. We were numbers 39 and 40 in the GA line. I remember being VERY excited to see Macy’s just [continue reading]

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. It was quite relaxing not to have to wait in line all day and stress out about a getting a good ‘spot,’ but then we realized being in the GA line was half of the fun. We [continue reading]

Baltimore Elevation – my U2 concerts A to Z

My favorite U2 concert that begins with B is without a doubt Baltimore Elevation on October 19, 2001. It is probably one of my top ten favorite concerts ever. The Baltimore show was my hometown show, which is always special, and it was my first Elevation show that leg of the tour. The concert was [continue reading]

K is for Kite

My favorite U2 song that begins with K is Kite. Even though Kite is a great song and was even better live, it is not really one of my favorites. It is not even my favorite song off of All That You Can’t Leave Behind. Kite was the only U2 song that I could find that began with K. But I [continue reading]
