2005-10-18 - U2 Rocked Philly! submitted by Kathleen

I had heard that this was the best concert of the 4 done in Philly and ut was awesome. I've seen U2 5 times now, going all the way back to May 1985. This show was great. The stage was like the one they used in the super bowl - a circular stage where the band was most of the time, and then a circular catwalk out into the audience. There were lights that circled the stage at different intervals (kind of reminded me of those outdoor tube lights, where you have a hose-like tube with the lights inside and you can bend it any way) and lights on both edges of the catwalk, There was also several screen of some tiype that looked like hanging chains at first, but may have contained individual lights - they went up and down througout the show.

During City of Blinding Lights, the screen on the back kind of lit up like a skyscape then all kinds of colors. Pretty cool. The best was during Vertigo, when the screens were red and all the lighting on the stage were on "chaser" and made it look like the stage was spinning - again in red. If you actually had vertigo, I bet this effect would have made you sick.

Bruce coming out on stage was total surprise for me (I heard no rumors like other people). I swear the people near me had no clue who he was but I recognized him right away.

I loved that they ended with 40 - it took me right back to 1985 when they used to end all their concerts with that one.

All in all a great show. Wish I had seen them in the srping and can't wait for them to come back.
