Saturday night 11/28/15.
Last show in Dublin!!!
My seats were a little higher up than I was for any show. But the 3Arena is a smaller venue so it wasn’t that bad at all ! Plus I got to see everything!!
Have I mentioned how nice the Irish fans are?! The couple that sat next to me were very cool. He was the big fan and it was her first show. But she was into it and even knew the new songs! When they went for drinks they always asked me if I wanted something!
Some photos from the last night!
This is a song for someone!
Even Better Than The Real Thing
Bathed in Blue
I can’t even explain how I felt at this show!
So many emotions!!! The new songs that I’ve grown to love. Iris and Song for Someone. So powerful to hear and know the stories behind them. So cool to see the Dublin crowd getting into the new songs too!
The old songs. The ones that get the crowd going crazy!! The Electric Co, Sunday Bloody Sunday and yes Pride get the crowd so LOUD!!! Then closing with Bad and 40. The crowd still singing long after the band was gone. They were singing along the River Liffey. On the North Side of Dublin. See! So, so, so many U2 moments everywhere I was!
It was like a dream to be in Dublin for those two shows!!!! I feel VERY lucky to have been able to return to Ireland. Hope it doesn’t take another fourteen years for me to get back!!
Oh! DLT asked for the special U2 Dublin concert tees! Friday night they didn’t have any left. Saturday night I was able to get two after a little wait!
