U2 In Phoenix Night One!

u2 may 22, 2015 Phoenix, AZ

On Friday May 22, 2015 I went to my first show of U2’s Innocence + Experience tour!

It was AWESOME!!!!!

First night!
What a night!
My seats were towards the E-stage and that’s were Bono appeared to start the show with The Miracle.
The crowd was amazing!!!!!!
The new songs sounded awesome and of course the old favorites did too!

I love looking around during the show to see how into it everyone is!!!

Sharing some of my best/favorite photos from my camera.  I ALMOST didn’t bring my camera and what I learned from this trip was that I need a new phone!  LOL! (it doesn’t take great concert photos at all! )

They open with The Miracle

They ended with ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ and it was amazing as a closer!  The crowd was singing right along with the band as they walked out.

But, you know what?!  This trip I did find what I was looking for, time away in a place I’d never been in a beautiful city and seeing my favorite band!!

  2. Read that their tour manager died suddenly – a rather eventful tour so far!
